Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Style Noters! Ever wondered why we associate St. Patrick’s Day with the color green? There are quite a few reasons, actually!
First and foremost, Ireland’s nickname is “The Emerald Isle.” The green in the flag and in the clover St. Patrick used in his teachings about Catholicism also played a big role as to why people wear green on this day. Some people still follow this tradition in Ireland. Catholics wear green and Protestants wear orange, representing the two colors in the flag while the white in the middle represents the peace between the two.
Tonight is the night we have all been waiting for, the premiere of the remake of Disney’s tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast. Our 90’s nostalgia is at an all-time high seeing the British bombshell, Emma Watson, play the smart, strong and sophisticated princess Belle.
Two quintessential New York City brands came together for one of NY FashionWeek’s most creative shows. Saku New York, a contemporary high fashion womenswear brand with showrooms in the East Village, challenged ARROJO NYC, the modern creative hairdressing brand with three salons in downtown NYC, to create hairstyles inspired by ‘femi-casual sea creatures.’ Happily, we had backstage access as lead stylist Alex Efstratiou ”pushed the envelope to create styles that matched their vision.” See a pictorial story of the show below.
Last night, the pretty and the privileged got together to award themselves Golden Statuettes at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The best part of this glorified advertisement is of course the red carpet, where our leading ladies sway and sashay in the most gilded of gowns, and the hair and makeup sets the tone for the palettes of the spring season. Marking the spot for the monochrome beauty trend, Emma Roberts’ sleek strawberry blonde hair and matte red lips were elegant and chic. Featuring a a side-parted sweep with ribbons of soft curls, the strawberry tones are a great fit for Emma’s complexion, while with the hair tucked back on one side and falling forwards on the other, the admirer’s eyes are encouraged to take in the whole face-frame.
