Out painting the town on a Saturday night, and I immediately spy, a brilliant blue swimming pool with a glass runway! Whatt? How is this possible? Three steps into the YSL bash held for NYFW, and I’m already in awe. The event was hosted at the YSL Beauty Hotel, by Harper Bazaar’s Beauty Director, Jessica Matlin, photographer of the September Issue, Kenneth Willardt, and makeup by YSL Beauté Global Beauty Director, Tom Pecheux. We kicked off the evening, literally walking on water, while strutting down a glass runway. Fearful to fall in? YES! Did we do it anyways? Most definitely, and it was divine!
YSL is celebrating the launch of their Fall 2019 collection and I’m beyond excited. YSL has always been my favorite beauty brand. I adore their lip colors and the stains are fabulous. I wear them daily. Beware…you’ll still have that brilliant color on the next morning, if you don’t remove it. I love that the color is long lasting, taking me from day to evening, leaving me feeling fancy for hours. I also wear the Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris fragrance daily, as well as YSL Black Opium.
As we walked up flights of stairs, we discovered multiple levels of interactive excitement. From a photo booth with air guitars, to a dreamy rooftop, complete with cocktails, my blogger bestie, Haili and I were in heaven. We tried several different lip stains which lasted us through the dance party, as well as margaritas and dinner at La Esquina (one of my favorites).
For the soirée, I felt I needed to dress the part, so of course that meant sequins! I stumbled upon a multi color, striped sequin dress from one of my favorite brands, Alice and Olivia, and it had me at hello. I layered this beauty with a black blazer, and open toed sandals. To accessorize, I wore crystallized burgundy tassel earrings from my fall collection, and carried a round, crossbody bag from Furla.
The evening was perfection, and my time spent with Haili during fashion week was truly my favorite part. It always is. The YSL Beauty Hotel, and NYFW was just another one in the books for us. And so the Adventures of Haili and Hallie continues. The countdown begins…xoxo
