Ann Watson of Henri Bendel Likes Nili Lotan, Anna Sui, and Peter Som
Beauty editor Aja Mangum managed to steal a few minutes of hair guru Frédéric Fekkai's time at the Diane Von Furstenberg show. The mane maestro is all about effortless chic this spring, apparently, with a focus on shiny, healthy hair. Bobs, chignons, and painfully tight ponytails are all in your near future, ladies, so pay attention as Fekkai explains how to achieve his looks.
There was no shortage of commentary backstage at the Derek Lam show: Fabiola Beracasa and Lam discuss the art of balancing his eponymous line with his work for Tod's, Amanda Ross declares Lam's "classic" designs to be among her favorites, and Bergdorf buyers have bought Lam's lines in full force. But as well designed and accessible as Lam's work may be, ever-honest Times critic Cathy Horyn is still searching for something more.
Diane Von Furstenberg's role in life is "to make women feel confident," and it's this sort of philosophy that makes the popular designer Fabiola Beracasa's idol. Backstage at the DVF show, Fab chats up the lady of the hour as well as Plum Sykes and Diane's hubby, megamogul Barry Diller — who reveals that his wife steers clear of working on his wardrobe. Watch and see why.
Comparatively quiet socialite Nicky Hilton debuted her Nicholai line last night, and New York was there to catch the magic both on the runway and behind the scenes. Nicky's big sis Paris wasn't present (was getting mocked by Sarah Silverman at the VMAs really that preferable?), but her proud parents were right by her side — mom Kathy was quite literally "speechless" at her daughter's accomplishment. As for the collection itself, Nicky drew her inspiration from bling. See for yourself how it all played out.
Behind the scenes at the Michael Kors show, Fabiola Beracasa encountered underwear, models, Robert Verdi, some adorable children, show producer Alexandre de Betak and, of course, Michael Kors himself.
