CARRY. What will you wear on your arm during NY Fashion Week? How about the Porsche Design Twin Bag! New for the summer, this beautiful boxy carryall has adjustable handles to be worn as a shoulder or handbag, comes in an assortment colors and luxury materials like ostrich and crocodile, and looks great no matter what your height! Pre-order the bag to your liking – check out more styles on our DivaGals Facebook page, and visit www.porche-design.com to find a Porsche Design store near you.
ARCH. During NY Fashion Week, even your brows have to look good! We got ours threaded and shaped at Shobha® brow salon in New York City’s Columbus Circle. To keep them looking fabulous all week long, we’ll use the Shobha® Brow Brush and Shobha® Brow Pencil to smooth and tame hairs and punch up our brow’s natural color. The brow pencil comes in easy-to-match shades and has a sharpener right in the cap, sweet! Build your brows at www.myshobha.com.
DOWNLOAD. Brush up on your runway history and download the documentary Versailles ’73: American Runway Revolution, which chronicles a fashion face-off between five prominent American designers: Anne Klein, Stephen Burrows, Bill Blass, Oscar de la Renta and Halston against five fantastique French designers: Yves St. Laurent, Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin and Emanuel Ungaro at the Palace of Versailles in 1973. We love that a color barrier-breaking collective of Black models sashayed down the runway, showcasing America’s diverse beauty! Available on iTunes beginning Feb. 12. Learn more at www.versaille73movie.com.
WATCH. Need a break from all the fashion? How about watching Grammy winner Toni Braxton and Hawthorne alum David Julian Hirsh as Nina and Jacob, two strangers of different races and religions, who meet after Jacob experiences a personal tragedy, and learn that music can bring them closer together in love. Twist of Faith premieres Saturday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
