Move Over Barbie, it’s Ken’s Turn to Party


Just like every little girl was always obsessed with Barbie, she was equally obsessed with Barbie’s man, Ken.  So naturally, I adored the Ken party thrown during last month’s Fashion Week.  Mattel threw a gorgeous party at Christie’s which was called “Celebrating Ken:  Fashion, Art, and the Ultimate Dream Date”, which featured six of menswear’s sexiest and sleekest designers like Simon Spur, Billy Reid and Michael Bastian and some delicious male models in various scenarios.











Guests were treated to chocolate Ken Dolls and pink Barbie themed cupcakes by Magnolia Bakery from “life-sized Kens”.

With Fashion Week being full of beautiful designs, I love looking back to one of my favorite trends this year, and of course, transferring it over to my industry: weddings and events.  Designers like Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta,  Max Azria and Michael Kors have created some of the most alluring fashions based around the trend.  I’ve loved everything about this look:  from gauzy, light fabrics to beautiful translucent makeup.  This of course plays off the Minimalist trend that was also hanging around.

The “sheer face” is perfect for the fresh, dewy, ingénue look that some brides seek to capture with their wedding day makeup:
