Excuse me for this late review of Fashion's Night Out, Had to deal with the other side of my life. I went with my girls and it was pretty fun... However it wasnt as fun as FNO 2011. The only really awesome stores we went to were Juicy Couture (which was a great destination to shop, sample the new perfume, and take great photos in.) G-town's LUSH store was yet another amazing place to go. Aside from their numerous homemade cosmetic products just screaming to be bought, they had this new invention called "Word Up" which you will close your eyes for while they spin the makeup spinner. Then you open your eyes and pick the first three colors you see. Every color means something about you. My three were Power= Red, Independent=black, Charm =Pink. Too awesome! We also were treated like celebrities at CSUP, and Sports Zone. Plus they had a delicous DANCE FLOOR WAITING TO BE TORE UP! ... And May I not forget the free food! New creative places to shop, and our grand finale red carpet photo that i'll look back on years from now! So Yes, FNO was big fun! The only thing I would say they needed more of were perhaps reasonable sales, and a more inviting atmosphere in the stores.. I wonder how NYC's FNO went??

Of course, as most people in my life should know, i'm a New Yorker wanna-be ( & a really good I might add) But it's just yet another thing they can do that I CANT go see that I cant at the Calvin Klein NYC, Dwayne Wade!! & just because he wont be modeling off his signiture undies... And nothing else doesnt mean it will not be meaningful.. He will be at the infamous undies store on 654 Madison Avenue signing copies of his new memoir. " A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball" Although I feel like my struggling life story so far is a better memoir idea, it's still a fab opportunity to meet the handsome B-baller! Damn, im really wondering what Calvin Klein DC will be doing, cant really top Dwayne Wade though! I mean you should see me right now... Looking over,at the CK here just shaking my head.
Other important folks to take some snapshots with: The Creative Directors of CK Francisco Cost and Halo Zuccheli and Vogue's Virginia Smith! Well, if I were there shoot Id be in attendance, but since I can't you mine grabbing Dwayne Wade undies for me!

Yess! Rejoice Bazzarly Voguers, we finally have Alexander McQueen news! For those who have been living under a rock since the 90’s, Lee Alexander McQueen was a extraordinary world well known fashion designer. His sudden death by his own hand in 2010 did not change the uniquely ‘’Dark imagination’’ he possessed in his clothing, especially at not his celebratory opening of his metropolitan museum of art. Sarah Burton, leader of the Alexander McQueen team did exceptionally divine on the royal wedding dress and also on his exhibition ‘’Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty’’. With the help of florist Raul Avila, who lined the stairway of the extravaganza with heather and also beautifully decorated the Temple of Dendur with Topiary birds and boxwood hedges, hosts of the opening Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Actress Salma Hayek and her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, who happens to be the owner the McQueen brand Oww! Stella McCartney was also in attendance, and curator of the event, Andrew Bolton. They showed the artist’s love for the dark side of the Romantic Movement in a way that was personal and visually exquisite. The music that flowed through the event was of the threatening genre, the classical selection of Mozart Adagio. His influential creativity was from the era of Prim Victoriana, which showed in the clothes on display. Stella McCartney said at the event that ‘’ Lee would be so proud, and I bet he is looking down.’’ The fashion genius has had brilliant inspirations after another such as Jack the Ripper (One of my all time favorite crime cases) in his 1992 graduation show from Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. And also the Highland Raping for his 1995 collection. It consisted of torn dresses and naked bodies with a wooden backdrop that was viciously smashed in. Along with the many Alexander McQueen runway shows that played, the centerpiece in the museum had shelves and cabinets of alluring and ‘’wild’’ accessories. This is a good way to show the world of the late designer’s work, in all its dark and decay looking glory.
