It's common knowledge that most of the everyday hair trends we use begin on the runway. Whether it's the look-like-you-have-dirty-hair-but-not-actually-be-dirty style; slick pin straight hair with a center pair, and the most recent craze over the "top knot" -- the models on the catwalk always inspire.
Last month during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week we saw lots of interesting looks and some so-so styles, but Donna Karan took a common "old" favorite and made it "new" and "trendy" all over again.
The models walking in the Donna Karan Collection Spring/Summer 2012 runway presentation strut down the runway wearing tribal print fabric, dark lips, lots of attitude -- and swinging blunt-end ponytails fastened with long cuff bands to play off the exotic essence of the show!
Last month Kristen Stewart surprised London Fashion Week attendees when she arrived for the Mulberry spring/summer 2012 runway show and took a front-row seat next to supermodel Kate Moss. I think the real shocker wasn't the fact that she was there, but that she looked so different from how we're use to seeing her.
Not only was the 21-year-old actress, known for her role as Bella Swan in the "Twilight" franchise, wearing a girly bohemian-esque blue dress -- she was also sporting a long, straight, and full head of black hair! Kristen recently changed the color and was given the extension treatment for her role as Snow White in "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is currently shooting in London.
Long days of rehearsal and shooting can take a lot out of an actor, but make-up artist Emma Kotch helped Kristen get a bright eyed, fresh-faced look for the morning fashion show. I can't tell you how you can get Kristen's darn-near flawless skin, but if you're interested in getting some of her Fashion Week beauty tips - look no further!
If New York Fashion Week is going on, you can rest yourself assured that you'll see the beautiful "One Tree Hill" actress Sophia Bush in attendance. This lady is so passionate and dedicated to her love of fashion that she attended a few Spring/Summer 2012 runway shows shows then headed back to Wilmington, North Carolina -- where she continued work on the final season of OTH -- before flying back to New York to enjoy the fashion frenzy.
Her first stop upon her return was Rebecca Minkoff's show where Soph was spotted wearing three of my favorite things -- a bright red blazer, Dannijo jewelry, and khaki nail polish!
Khaki nail polishes are still so hot for your nails as we head into the fall season. Sophia stayed on trend wearing "San-Tan-tonio" by OPI, a brilliant tan shade that complimented Sophia's freshly sun-kissed skin and went with literally every single thing she wore for the rest of the week (see below). A polish that will work with any look is a must for every gal!
