The Oscars are the piece de resistance of awards season…and in LA, you really want/need to view the show somewhere cool (unless you’re actually attending the awards…hey, you never know!). I was invited to the Mercedes-Benz viewing party at Soho House (my fave!) and, along with my girls Sydne and Jeannine, we had a blast watching the show, drinking champagne and taking many a hilarious photo.
I will never say no to a party at Soho House. Plain and simple. Add in one of the most decadent stores ever (Barney’s New York) and one of the best makeup brands of all time (NARS) and there’s not even any room for negotiation. Barney’s and NARS partnered to celebrate the pre-Fall collections and guests were treated to an amazing Q&A with Francois Nars himself and Barney’s Fashion Director, Amanda Brooks.
The event was held in one of Soho House’s private rooms and we got to listen to Francois discuss his vision for the brand as well as hear Amanda discuss Fall 2011 fashion trends like rich burgundy’s, greens, teals, lady-like details and unconventional hemlines. And hint, pointy toe heels are definintely back. I’m also loving the NARS pre-Fall makeup collection (pictured above) because how amazing and rich are those colors? The blue eyeshadow is seriously intense, in a good way.
Not the best photo but NARS makeup artists where available for touch-ups and I attempted what I like to call “the starter bold lip” using NARS “Manhunt” lipstick, which I’m now obsessed with.
