Beatnic – Guest of a Guest

This New York Fashion Week, between the frenzy of hair and makeup, run-throughs and showtime, the industry’s most fabulous models and brilliant designers could all be found… crowded around the catering table.

Beatnic, formerly known as By Chloe, caused quite the backstage buzz this season as the food favorite at the Markarian, Collina Strada and Proenza Schouler fashion shows.

TA3 Swim – InStyle

You’ve likely seen the thumb-stopping ads featuring TA3 swimwear, the innovative new brand that promises to smooth, sculpt, and flatter your figure with its sleek, patent-pending one-piece styles. With a lace-up back design that snatches your waist, these understated, solid-colored suits look pretty average at first glance, but actually offer so much more once you tie one on. It goes without saying that the convincing social media posts piqued my interest immediately, but it wasn’t until the brand offered to send me a suit of my own that I could determine if the $178 price tag was justified.

Koral – Vogue

Now that the defining lines between athletic wear, loungewear, and relaxed after-hours-wear have been blurred to soft smudges, searching for the best activewear is a triple play. In 2021, everything lives beyond the gym, the studio, or, of course, the yoga mat.

ME Cosmetics – Mane Addicts

I wanted to learn all about the greatest beauty invention since sliced bread (in my humble opinion), so I chatted with brand founder Camille Barreto about how this product came to be and much more. I even reviewed it below, so scroll on to get acquainted with the scalp foundation and hear my honest thoughts on the product!

Prakti Beauty – ELLE India

For Pritika Swarup – Model, Entrepreneur, Founder & CEO of Prakti Beauty – the lack of India-inspired brands in the global market makes no sense. She believes there is a genuine curiosity and interest in the West about Indian skincare. So, to try and fill this gap, she launched Prakti Beauty. The Ameri-Vedic Beauty brand integrates Ayurvedic ingredients and Indian remedies with modern, luxurious textures.

Alice + Olivia – Vogue

For those unfamiliar with Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet’s longtime support of Pride Month, each June the brand supports the LGBTQ+ community with charitable merchandise and a great big bash. While festivities last year were put on hold by the pandemic, Bendet certainly made up for it last night. “I just thought, let’s do this,” she said. “It’s such a privilege to be able to celebrate, and we should honor that. Alice + Olivia hosts a Pride event each year, but this year we’re doing a Pride Prom!”
