Flashback September 2010
As I continue my countdown to NYFW, I recall LaQuan Smith’s Spring/Summer 2011 show at the Peninsula Hotel where guests were seated at round tables and models paraded around in his Marie Antoinette-inspired collection. It was my first time seeing “statement nails”…a trend that’s all the rage right now! The room included such attendees as Andre Leon Talley, Diane von Furstenberg (you know I was hyped to see her), Common and Sandra Bernhard (who was an absolute sweetheart!!!).
PS: Forgive the blurry camera phone, my photographer friend tried to shoot for me, but got stuck at another gig. Thank goodness I have a real camera now – lol!
Guest models: Serena Williams, Debra Cox and Cassie (the only one not seen below)
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
