Last night was just too amazing.....there were three events one after the other.
First was the premiere social party for MAKE UP FOREVER, for professional makeup artists only. They were promoting their latest range of lipsticks called ROUGE ARTIST INTENSE, which are amazing......50 highly pigmented shades (my favorite was a violet color #15 which I think I will use in my makeup design for one of the fashion shows coming up for Spring 2011) which were truly divine. The event was held at their charming little boutique on E.12 St. just off Fifth Ave.and the place was packed with so many beautiful artists trying out all the fabulous colors. Michael DeVilles of THE POWDER GROUP invited me and didn't he look dashing in his new black and silver facial hair.
I was featuring a new look myself having recently tinted my hair a lavender silver shade. I wore a deep silver gray silk suit with a matching gray vest embroidered with purple flowers and a cravat of iridescent violet. Hmmmmm there's something about that color.....can you tell? It must be in the air, along with the rain that night.
I couldn't stay very long though as the humidity was so intense plus I needed to get to the Leslie-Lohman gallery in Soho to attend photographer MIKE RUIZ photo exhibit "TRANSFORMATIONS". The camera crews and paparazzi were in full force as I arrived interviewing Mr.Ruiz in front of giant blowups like the beauty shot above. Mike is still the most handsome guy in town and so talented. But again the heat and humidity was so overwhelming from the lovely crowd of fashionistas I was forced back outside to find some cool air.
Just in time to give a kiss to 60s Icon Linda Morand of THE SUPER MODELS HALL OF FAME before jumping into a taxi to go off to Amanda Lepore's after party at the nightclub Carnival in the "BIG TOP" room which was over flowing with freaks, geeks, and Go-Go boys all to celebrate Mike Ruiz triumphant showing.
Finally after shaking my bootay to the retro disco hits it was time for me to go-go home.
