GAL APPROVED Fashion Week Edition: GOODNESS Eating, TRESemme Holding Power; & Deivie’s Spring LineBy DIVAGALS | September 9, 2011 | Beauty, Gal Approved
WEAR. Even before Fashion Week kicked off yesterday, designers were showcasing their wares, including the upcoming Spring line by Deivie. Style Gal contributor Nichole Dossous was on the scene to check out the offerings. Inspired by her bouts of sleepwalking, designer Christina Mannino has created interesting pieces which look like sleepwear but are made for a night out, or even a summer brunch with the girls! My favorite look? A nighty-inspired romper. It would go great with a cute pair of strappy sandals by day and hot with a nude platform heel by night. See the line’s Fall/Autumn offerings at their site www.deivie.com.
MOLD. Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is all about style, from your head to your toes. That’s why the DivaGals were so glad to see TRESemme back for yet another round of free styling sessions and product previews under the tents. We scooped up our complimentary TRESemme Freshstart Dry Shampoo (perfect for weave wearers) and got the scoop on the ultimate styling tool: TRESemme Climate Control Mousse with Olive Oil. “It’s super emollient and has conditioners and polymers that protect the hair against humidity,” a rep told us. “It feels creamier and has little longer life,” something we’ll need for our hair to make it through a day of shows. And at $4 a bottle, the price is always in fashion. Pick up TRESemme at a Target near you.
EAT. Yes, sometimes fashion reporters do get hungry. This year, they will be able to quench their cravings at GOODNESS, a chic pop-up restaurant across the street from Mercedez-Benz Fahion Week’s Lincoln Center tents. The space is the brainchild of supermodel Elettra Wiedemann (pictured above), the daughter of Isabella Rossellini. “Anybody whoΓÇÖs anybody knows itΓÇÖs next to impossible to find a good, stylish, fast and healthy meal near Lincoln Center. Goodness solves that by serving locally-sourced, healthy food prepared by the cityΓÇÖs hottest chefs,” she shares. “I know what itΓÇÖs like to be in shows all day going crazy with all the stimulus, so I wanted to create a place where my friends could come eat and chill a bit before they go back to work.ΓÇ¥ GOODNESS will be open for breakfast and lunch and provide fast, healthy and delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts, along with some ΓÇ£sinfulΓÇ¥ fare. GOODNESS is open from Sept. 11 to 14, from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m., at 44 West 63rd St. You can book your reservation online for $35 at www.goodnessbadness.com.
