Interview w/ Daniel Silverstain on His First Presentation at NYFW

Daniel Silverstain has been making waves in the fashion community ever since he arrived on the scene in 2011. Early on, Daniel was selected by Vogue Italy as one of Muuse’s Top 10 Most Promising Designers, and in 2013 was a finalist in ELLE’s Fashion Next Fashion Show. Daniel was very recently accepted as a member of the CFDA+ and recognized for his outstanding achievement in Womenswear Design. With design experience under his belt from working at Calvin Klein Collection, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Ellie Tahari, the young Israeli designer is finally showing his own collection at NYFW for the first time. I caught up with the newbie to find out who inspires him to create, and how he’s learning to let go.

NYFW: Interview w/ Designer Kaelen Haworth on the Importance of Staying Local & Having Fun! via Guest of a Guest


Canadian cool girl Kaelen Haworth has the sort of self-possessed ease of manner typical of someone twice her age, with a sense of style that’s as authentically hip as they come. So it’s no surprise that her eponymous womenswear line, KAELEN reflects the same statement-making, yet effortless presence of the designer herself. Kaelen’s aesthetic tends toward minimalist designs with stand out elements like bold volume and luxurious textures – each more covetable than the last.

This season, we took a moment with Kaelen during her spring show at the High Line Hotel to find out more about what drives this young designer’s dedication, how she pulls it all off and still manages to have fun during NYFW!

Where I Went & What I Wore: A Faberge Big Egg Hunt & Art in General...via Guest of a Guest

Sometimes you've just got to party on a Tuesday... Like when storied jeweler, Faberge throws a massive fete to celebrate the finale of their citywide Big Egg Hunt. The appropriately grandiose bash was co-hosted by Arden Wohl, Waris Ahluwalia, Terri Richardson, Aby Rosen and 10 other fixtures in the social scene, ensuring that the guest list was just as hot. Surrounding a stage and under the glow of water-filled globe lamps at the Diamond Horseshoe in the Paramount Hotel, the crowd was equally theatrical. One woman dressed in white lace tights, a white fur coat and matching feathered hat declared, "now this is a party!" to nobody in particular.

But before the after party comes the other after party, as I began the evening with art in general... Or make that Art in General - and their annual Spring Gala. Co-chaired by Kyle de Woody, Manish Vora and Dustin Yellin - dozens of pretty young things packed out Root studios in honor of artist Phong Bui and Sotheby's Lisa Dennison. Guests mingled amongst recognizable faces and those less recognizable…namely the ones printed on the hanging installation by David Mramor, dubbed “John Doe.” Click through to see my outfit choice for the event-filled night!

16 Non-Toxic Beauty Products For Earth Day

16 Non-Toxic Beauty Products For Earth Day

News flash – it’s just as important to be aware of what we put ON our bodies as what we put in them. So while most of us know to steer clear of GMO’s when it comes to our food, what you may not realize is that they’re also present in a lot of beauty products. Many popular bath, body and makeup items also use other dangerous toxins like parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petrochemicals, all of which have been linked to health issues and scary diseases including cancer. Yikes!

Where I Went & What I Wore: Guggenheim Young Collector's Party

If the Guggenheim Young Collector’s Party had a theme, it would be simplicity and decadence combined. The stark white, multi level museum provided a sexy back drop for the gaggle of young, wealthy and beautiful guests in attendance. Party-goers were treated to an unlimited Pointy Snout caviar bar, where servers dolled out porcelain spoons and oyster shells filled with black pearls one after the other. DJ Chelsea Leyland spun from the center of the room, dressed in a red peplum dress and braid crown. So what does one wear to an evening of grandeur on a windy 12-degree night? My answer: a sequined white sheath dress, layered over a thin cashmere tank and Uniqlo Heattech tights. Yes, the secret to dressing up in the dead of winter; is hiding layers of warmth wherever you can! So while my sparkling sleeveless dress appeared cool, especially when paired with a dark plum lip and copious amounts of arm candy – I was anything but cold. Click through to see what I wore, and tips on winter cocktail attire.

For industry insiders, Fashion week is always a test of stamina. Grueling schedules tackled in photo worthy but often uncomfortable outfits is fun, but it's also hard work. Add a polar vortex and buckets of snow to the mix and well...things can get messy. I surveyed some of the regulars on the NYFW scene to learn how the diehards keep calm, warm and stylish during February fashion week. From the best underpinnings and practical footwear to what REALLY gets stashed in those big, beautiful bags - these helpful tips will get you out of your everyday puff coat and stylishly through the last of winter.

NYFW: Day 7 Street Style from the Tents via Guest of a Guest

Though the sun shone down on Lincoln Center, it didn't go far towards warming the 21 degree day. Fashion week attendees rushed in and out of the tents in a hurry to escape the cold, but not without pausing gamely for a few street style photos first. Boisterous bloggers flaunted daring fashions, and Lynn Yeager raced by in her signature face paint as several cameras snapped her picture. In fact, we turned the lens on a few of the most well dressed photographers themselves. It seems they too deserve a moment of appreciation for looking good on the job, especially under such arctic conditions!

A Single Gal's Guide to Celebrating Valentine's Day

A Single Gal's Guide to Celebrating Valentine's Day

But this holiday is for more than just couples, it’s for anyone and everyone who wants an excuse to celebrate. I mean who doesn’t love, Love? Love for your BFF, your faithful French bulldog who’s ALWAYS there when you need her, your awesome dry cleaner, who never scolds you for bringing in wine stained blouses week after week… 

Besides – this holiday was never for (most of) the boys anyway. I’m pretty sure that the majority of males are happy to leave the doilies, pink hearts and sappy, soul-baring cards to us lady folk. But even if the thought of all that makes you want to upchuck your kale salad and shut the blinds until the 15th, there are plenty of ways to feel the love.
