A proud Max and Lubov Azria at the end of the Herve Leger SS 2014 show at Lincoln Center on Saturday. Though they are now only the face of the company since being taken over by Guggenheim Partners the pair are still able to pull off a great finale.

This collection by far has been their best in a longg time………

From the first thump of the tribal music playing, I knew that the SS 2014 Herve Leger show was going to deliver nothing but the sex, luxury, and decadence. Needless to say my fashion prayers were answered….

In the 32 looks delivered we saw everything that the bodycon dress originally mastered by fashion icon Christian LaCroix, given a slight twist by the team of BCBG Max Azria. Golden zippers on jackets and belts to amazing waist cinching belts and pencil skirts filled the runway. This collection really brought back the sensuality that Herve Leger was once known for. By staying true to the simplicity of “bodycon” dressing the team at BCBG Max Azria captured the true spirit of Herve Leger which has always allowed women to show off their vixen while still being able to be a lady.

With a record shattering 3 models of color including Victoria’s Secret Models Lais Ribiero and Jasmine Tookes this is move in the right direction for the heavily segregated brand.

Stay tuned for the rest of the collection……

From the crowd who attended the show which included, pop artist Nicki Minaj, Celebrity Wardrobe Stylist Monica Rose, E! Entertainment personality Guiliana Rancic, Reality TV personalities Kenya Moore (#RHOA), Marlo Hampton (#RHOA), Quad (#Married To Medicine) and countless others expect this collection to seen from the red carpet to the small screen.

#NYFW is in full swing and bcbgmaxazria kicked things off this morning. A lot of deconstructed pieces from missing lapels to coats with one pocket, they truly borrowed from the boys and left some things behind… “We were inspired by nature and modern art. Contemporary art inspired the choice of vivid colors, while more muted tones glean inspiration from the natural beauty of the world around us,” Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer of BCBG says about the new collection.

I loved the one sided peplum, cropped tops, and over sides jackets however it was not the most wearable collection and for a brand that was once known for catering to today’s power woman they seem to be losing touch with who she is. I am a young woman, a model, and live in NYC these looks translate well in the city, but if you’re a career woman in middle America do you see yourself in any of these looks????

Congratulations to the team at FASHIZBLACK magazine on their Fashionista.com feature. The feature focused on the magazine’s rise via their Kickstarter campaign, though they have been around for more than 3 years online they have now expanded their reach to include a print version in English and French. FASHIZBLACK is the only magazine to give true global exposure to models of color that VOGUE and other maintstream glossies will never give us, it’s amazing to see their continued growth. I will patiently wait for my cover and continue to support their movement in the fashion world.

"Hunger Games" star and fashion darling, Jennifer Lawrence covers VOGUE US for September 2013. The coveted cover is by far the most important of the year and going with fresh faced Lawrence is sure to bump up sales!
Shot by Mario Testino the star and face of Miss Dior wears Calvin Klein and looks amazing. This puts me in the mood to watch “Silver Linings Playbook”.
