GAL APPROVED NY Fashion Week Spring 2013: “Fit” Designer, Shimmery Gams, Stiletto Relief and Your Fashion Week Snack Savior!By Delaina Dixon | September 14, 2012 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
SAVOR. The perfect way to end New York Fashion Week Spring 2013? Seated at an intimate runway presentation for designer Kithe Brewster inside the Nomad Hotel, where everyone had a front row seat, literally! The DivaGals were the VIP guests of fitness guru Kacy Duke, Kithe’s sister, who had invited to see his exclusive debut collection. After mingling with recording artist Wycelf John and nibbling on canapes, the show began. A mix of the ethereal to the daringly bold, the collection included pieces in leather, lambskin and silk lame. One of our many faves was this streamlined jacket-blouse with matching skort pictured above. We’d feel like a bad-ass goddess in that!

SHIMMER. For TV DivaGal’s last night of NY Fashion Week Spring 2013, I rocked a strapless mini-dress which cried for my legs to look bangin’. So glad my Prtty Peaushun arrived earlier that morning in the mail. DivaGals first learned about this skin tightening body lotion from Made in Jersy‘s Toni Trucks. She gave it rave reviews, and we knew we had to give it a try ourselves. Squeezing out of the contaminate-free designed bottle, my Prtty Peaushun was a shiny coppery color — yes creator Bethany Karlyn, a celebrity makeup artist, has smartly made her magic potion in five different shades for all hues of pretty. I smoothed it on and could see the difference immediately as my legs took on a subtle glow that lasted all through the long night of shows, presentations and parties. Available at www.prttypeaushun.com.
CUSHION. The DivaGals love getting dressed up in our highest heels for NY Fashion Week. What we don’t love is the pain those 5-inch spikes can cause. Enter foot*petals, inserts designed to take off some of the pressure. We scored a pair of “killer kushionz” full inserts at the “Kick Off Your Heels And Get Glam” Fashion Week Lounge inside the Empire Hotel, and immediately stuck them into our band new Madden Girl 5-inch sparkly stilettoes. Only then could we not only stand out during Fashion Week, but actually stand! Available at drug stores across the nation and www.footpetals.com.
NOSH. During NY Fashion Week, there’s so much running from one show to the next, it’s easy to forget to eat! Luckily Fiber One was on it, handing out delicious 90-calorie bar packed with 20 percent of the daily value of fiber per serving inside the tents at Lincoln Center. It kept us going from Angel Sanchez to Zang Toi!
