GAL APPROVED Fashion Week! A New Mag, Clean Brushes and Undercover Style!By Delaina Dixon | September 7, 2012 | Entertainment, Gal Approved
READ. It’s New York Fashion Week, and what better way to kick off the couture festivities than with a new magazine that celebrates style! KB1111 has created┬áCulture, the first fashion magazine for the diversity of New York City. At the launch party at Clyde Frazier’s Wine and Dine, which benefitted North American Family Institutes (NAFI’s) Youth Link, models, fashionistas and style enthusiasts sipped cocktails and shared style secrets.
SUPPORT. Being dressed for Fashion Week isn’t just about what you wear on the outside ΓÇô it’s what you start with that really counts, especially if you have a little something extra on top. That’s why we’re loving this incredibly adorable bra and panty set from Freya. The Arabella, as it’s known, goes past the average D-cup sizing to offer styles in E, F even G. When the cup goes up, the band often comes down, and Freya offers bras with band sizes as small as 28 (this particular one is 30E). For those who don’t think that lacy and sexy can keep things lifted, so to speak ΓÇô let me assure you, this one measures up! Freya Arabella, available at Bloomingdale’s and┬áHerRoom.com.
CLEAN. During Fashion Week, your makeup is just as important as the outfit you choose. But you’ll never get the right face with dirty brushes. Enter Saving Face, the only makeup brush cleaning service, based in New York City. Founder/creator and DivaGals contributor Nichole Dossous has set up a unique pop-up service during Fashion Week. From Sept. 10 -12, bring your brushes to Salon 66 (60 West 66 St.), to get them cleaned. The service ranges from $5 to $15. Make your appointment and get your brushes fashionably clean!
CLEAN2. Just in time for fashion week when everyone is judged on their “look”… tah dah! L’Oreal EverStyle is a hair gel that is 100 perecent vegan, paraben and alcohol free and made with natural botanical extracts. It’s fabulous for curly hair. This lovely gel restored, rehydrated and added sheen to Luxe Gal’s curls.
