The Passing of a Legend; Oscar de la Renta

amal (1).jpg

The fashion industry and Latinos across several continents are mourning the end of an era as fashion icon Oscar de la Renta has passed away at age 82.

A staple on the red carpet and Oval Office, Oscar was known best for his ability to bring out the best in professional women with his strong-yet flatteringly feminine designs. Having just recently celebrated his 50th anniversary as a designer, de la Renta leaves behind a powerful legacy of versatility, innovation and an unparalleled celebration of the feminine form.

Oscar is survived by his wife, Annette Engelhard, and adopted son, Moises de la Renta.

Out and About; BLF at Noir et Blanc Fall Trunk Show Event Featuring Anni Kuan!


Signature Coat, Anni Kuan

Fashion Week has been a whirlwind of events, so I was happy to close out this season’s offerings by visiting one of my favorite shops, Noir et Blanc! This evening’s festivities were a showcase of designer Anni Kuan.

Perhaps best known for being First Lady of New York Chirlane McCray’s go to choice for high-profile events, Anni displayed her Fall/Winter 2014 Collection at the chic boutique. Selections included her signature coat (shown above) and dress collections, as well as new additions. Besides the coat (which also has quilted lining to take you from Fall to Winter) one of my favorite pieces was a shirt-dress made from vegan suede that felt like butter and draped perfectly!

Guests of the event were treated to wine, cheese and fruit to sweeten their shopping experience, while NEB owner Deborah Koenigsberger was on hand to assist shoppers in personalizing their dress choices with the boutique’s many accessory offerings.

For more pictures from the event and to learn more about Noir and Anni Kuan head over to NEB’s Facebook page. I definitely enjoyed myself this season! What were some of your favorite looks from SS2015?

Dascha told Latina Magazine, “You know, I like to take risks and play with my hair,” when asked on the carpet. “It’s the time to do it, so why not?”, Polanco took to her Instagram to ask her fans what they thought of her new ‘do.

What do you think?
