Sea the Beauty: YDAMYS SIMO’s Collection at Style Fashion Week

After seeing the collection, all I wanted to do was rent a boat and sail off into the sea. All of the pieces in the collection have a feel-good vibe. I think they are a lot of fun. I love the message behind this line: shatter the norms and redefine the way you see beauty.

“Sea The Beauty of a soul’s depth and the surface will never again be enough.” 

The Sea the Beauty collection is all about seeing the beauty within yourself. Loving yourself. Knowing that you are beautiful.

Nick Santonastasso was the opening model for the line. Everyone around me stood up when he walked down the runway. He was fierce. He was captivating. He was inspiring. “The most attractive thing you can be is different”- Nick Santonastasso

Shatter the norms. Redefine beauty.

“I am immensely proud of the brand I have created. I am proud of the unique designs but equally proud of the positive message I attach to them. I want to make a difference in the world. I want to leave the younger generation with a positive message and a positive image about themselves.” – Designer YDAMYS SIMO

 

These are my top looks from this collection:

Starting Off New York Fashion Week with Supermodel Farah Zulaikha

 

This is one of my favorite times of the year! To celebrate, I’m sharing my behind the scenes exclusive with supermodel Farah Zulaikha.

Farah is one of the most open, edgiest yet sweetest models that I know.  When I was first thinking of creating my fashion blog, I didn’t know where to start.  I remember walking into the makeup room at New York Fashion Week and finding Farah. I knew that I wanted to start a fashion blog but i didn’t know if I was truly ready. I ran the idea by Farah to see what she thought of it. Farah loved the idea and encouraged me to just start… all while getting her makeup done!

Would you believe two years later, we had our exclusive interview in that same make up room?!

The video above shows my exclusive behind the scenes look with Supermodel Farah Zulaikha while she was getting ready for designer Alexandra- Popescu-York’s fashion show in New York City.

Happy New York Fashion Week!

How to Celebrate the Holidays in Australia with Model Claudine Henningsen

Did you ever wonder what it’s like to celebrate the holidays in Australia? While it’s usually cold and snowy here in New York, it’s usually warm and sunny in Australia! Model Claudine Henningsen shared what she loves about the holiday and how she celebrates them.

Meet Claudine:

How to celebrate the holidays Claudine style…

So…  in Australia, it’s summer during the holidays! For us here it’s all about the sun, going to the beach, surfing, and catching with friends and family. For me personally, the festive feeling and the buzz of Christmas really starts with our yearly family Christmas Carols in the Park. It’s an amazing evening with loads of singing, live performances, awesome food trucks and huge fireworks.

Setting up the Christmas tree is also a really special tradition where my Mum, Dad, my brother Gabriel and I (even our dog Holly and cat Yoda), dance around the tree, sing, be silly and decorate the tree!

I love to spend the holiday time catching up with my brother, hanging out with friends, having sleepovers, and going shopping. I also love heading to the beach and pools, going to the movies, trampolining, being with my pets and spending “girl time” with my Mum.

New Years is usually a big group celebration. Sometimes we head to the country or go up north to Brisbane to visit my Aunty, Uncle and cousins.

There are plenty of lazy days in there for just relaxing, playing board games, reading and watching TV. I enjoy our hot, balmy barbecue evenings and our morning sleep-ins.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Casting Auditions: What It Was Like To Be There

IMG_1960
Model Sadie Newman

Everyone’s been talking about the Victoria’s Secret fashion show auditions! For the past 3 weeks, Victoria’s Secret models have been

coming to New York City to audition for the big 2017 fashion show. While I wish I was actually able to watch the auditions, it was exciting to watch the models show up for their chance to be picked.

Each potential Victoria’s Secret model has shown up in a cute outfit while strutting her confidence as she walked into her audition. I knew when a model was coming since the paparazzi would snap into action and start taking pictures.

Some of the models would have some fun and would show us their practice runway walks. They would also do a quick photo shoot for some of the photographers.

IMG_1981Last Monday, the auditions took place during the solar eclipse! So there I was watching the breathtaking moment with both friends and some of the models. It was really nice because it brought everyone together where we were all sharing our eclipse glasses or homemade eclipse viewers. It was definitely a once in a lifetime kind of moment.

Victoria’s Secret model Liela Nda borrowed my friend’s solar eclipse glasses and the paparazzi took a photo. I really wish I had also taken a picture of it! I checked to see if the photo was released online but I haven’t found it yet. But I did find different pictures of the Victoria’s Secret models arriving at the office. Another one of my friends had snuck into the background of one of the photos! I couldn’t stop laughing! It was fun to Google pictures & videos of the past few weeks and see how many of the models I actually saw.

Good luck to all the models!

You go girls!
