Spring 2010 is no time for the Meek

I understand that there are many of us that are under the threat of an impending snow storm. There are others that are basking in 70 degree weather (you know who you are!! LOL). However, for all of us, Spring is on it's way whether we're ready for it or not.

Ahhh Dolce, what can you say about these two?? Dolce & Gabanna can always glam up and bring back a classic look. The Marilyn-esque Scarlet wearing scarlet... Fabbuuuu!!

Kind of frosty, kind of spring. It's plain to see that both ends of the spectrum are going to come into play this spring. No middle ground here people.. Lets DO THIS!!

Looking natural is ALWAYS a good way to go. Looking like yourself with a little extra punch. Get on this and pretty up your makeup case:)

This look by Dolce & Gabbana is Spring time enough to be summer forward. It screams sexy, with a touch of innosence. Thank you D&G:) xo

Estee Lauder is most certainly left in the wings on this one either. This Spring 2010 collection is enough to make me want to run out to the store and pick it up. I mean would you just BEHOLD THE PRETTY of it all?!

Spring cleaning has GOT to happen and more importantly SPRING SHOPPING also has to happen!! So don't be scrrrd, roll ur sleeves up and ditch the old and bring home the new:)

Lets continue on with Nail color.. Simple, not a big spending needs to happen, however an introduction of COLOR has to happen.

I guess you COULD always stick to the safe French Manicure, but WHYYY when it's so easy and fun to change up your nail color for the "Funner"..LOL..

Violet but not, red but not really, irredescent as can be yuppers!! Gotta LaLaLove a polish that changes when it feels like it..LOL..

The classic, beautiful, vavavoom Red.. Makes you wanna be a hand model :) It's all types of timeless and is really a MUST HAVE whether you're a "French manicure" girl or not.

These darling little bottles, hold darling little colors which are perfect for you not-so-bold ladies who still would like to partake in the springtime fun that is colored nail polish. Choose your color, or colors and change them every week till summer time hits:)

Leave it to Chanel to bring you the best of the best. With these new putty colors you can change your color, your style and your attitude with one fell swoop:) Gotta love it!! and well.. I do!!

Coming soon... Spring 2010 Hair Trends!! Stay tuned lovies:) xo

Henry N. Jackson 2010 Spring Fashion Show

Henry N. Jackson Spring 2010

New York fashion week is one of the busiest times of the year for designers. Getting their designs in order, putting finishing touches on their creations, hiring their staff, securing their venue.. It's all very stressful.

Henry, however, handled it with the greatest of decorum. Backstage, watching Henry work was astounding. Everything ran so smoothly, like a well oiled machine.

This year, I had the privilege and honor of being key makeup artist for Henry N. Jackson's 2010 Spring line. Along with my team comprising of Chris Lanston, Niki Manavi and Chontae Evans we created Henry's makeup vision on the lovelies in his show. An all class act, held at 320 Studios just blocks away from Bryant Park.

The Spring 2010 collection focuses on mixing cotton prints from African inspired motifs with traditional couture fabrics to mix cultures and heritages. Henry was inspired to modernize his Spring prints by artist Yinka Shonibare's fabric designs and cloth sculptures. He also used as a historical muse Nancy Cunard, the 1920's Cunard Line shipping heiress, who was bold enough to use African style mixed with European Couture looks and jewelry.

Henry has reshaped these fabrics to appeal to the International Couture style he acquired while designing for Valentino in Rome, Italy. This statement-making collection will make you re-think what fashion means for multi-cultural women.

**Henry N Jackson is an award-winning designer, “America’s Next Great Designer Award” two consecutive years and the “Rising Star Award” from International Press Association, who started his career at Oscar de la Renta after graduating Parsons School of Design and was quickly hired away to Valentino in Rome to design for his Couture customers. Henry has since designed for several international fashion labels and has sold to most leading high-end department and specialty stores in the USA, France, UK and Japan under his own label Henry N Jackson for HNJ. Henry’s collection sells in the price range of $1000- $10,000 dollars to his retail & Couture customer base.**

So sit back, relax and take in... Henry N. Jackson's 2010 Spring Collection in action. It's worth its weight in gold.
