So what to do when a Central Park picnic takes a rain delay….?
Take the girls to brunch and a bit of culture!
No need to look all too far away – been meaning to check out the PUNK exhibit since admiring all the rocker red carpet style from the Met Gala… while equally pondering just who were the stylists behind some of not-so-punk-tastic looks!?
And wow who knew what genius could be concepted with a few safety pins, studding, papier-mâché, spray paint & garbage bags!
BONUS discovery: new found love for the talent behind Maison Martin Margiela, impressive!
PUNK: Fashion at Metropolitan Museum May 9–August 14, 2013
All of my ladies dazzled in chic nudes, classic blacks & bits of sparkle. The topic of the night was of course Huston ♥ Nikki made a strong statement performance (and not my best dressed list) AND Gaga- we missed you on the red carpet boo!
Here is some fashion inspiration for you! This amazing editorial story “character studies” by Andy Eaton for the Contributing Editors is an expression of molding personalities and self discovery. Playing with different textures, patterns, and structures, this piece is eye catching and fresh. Hope you enjoy!
Who says you can’t be a star? Halloween is the perfect day where you can be ANYONE you want- including a celebrity. We know how creative you can be! Remember when you used to make your own Halloween costumes growing up? Remember when trick-or-treating was the highlight of your season, it still can be- with a little ambition and imagination. Here are some fab celeb costume ideas- and the best part is we will tell you exactly what pieces you need to make the look come together.
These chickas have some serious style! Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen is a delicious duo for Halloween. The above image is a costume that two ladies put together themselves. It is supper easy to do, and of course let’s make it your own! Here’s what you will need:
- your best friend (or sister) to be the 2nd twin
- 1 long black dress & 1 long white dress- you can switch it up by using gray, nude, brown or any neutrals (the twins do not wear much color)
- a long jacket (anything vintage works great)- don’t be afraid to hit your local thrift store!
- huge sunglasses
- blonde wigs (if you don’t have blonde hair)
- hippie headbands
- black nail polish
- 2 empty starbucks cups (or full depending on what ur drinkin!)…add some flare by writing their names in sharpie on each cup
- have your blackberry or iphone in had
- and most importantly LOTS of accessories- rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings & of course your fav Sienna Ray cross body or tote
Barbie is back…queen Barbie Nicki Minaj that is! This rap star diva is a fun look that will keep you energetic & fierce all night. Here is what you’ll need to complete the look

Of course how could this celeb Halloween list not have the ultimate pop-star Lady GaGa! This outrageous fashionista is known for her out of control style. There are MANY lady gaga looks you could try for your costume (if your daring enough)- but this one is a no brainer. Here’s what your need:
- a hooded leotard (you could choose any color you like)- of course from American Apparel
- long blonde wig with bangs
- rayband esc sunglasses
- long gloves (choose to match your leotard or add in some extra color)
- if your not willing to bare all of that leg try some sexy fishnet tights

Good luck with your costume, hope this helps! Don’t forget to post your pictures- we can’t wait to see what you come up with! Happy Halloween ;)
Celebrating it’s 11th year, Jingle Ball (Clear Channel Radio) will light up New York City on December 9th at Madison Square Garden. What is “Jingle Ball” you ask? (unless you live under a rock)- it is ONLY the biggest concert of the year where every major artist in music teams up to put on an amazing series of shows….not to mention the star studded celebs that usually introduce each act. This past Friday (Oct 21) Miss Demi Lovato joined the z100 team at Areopostale’s Time Square store to make the official announcement of the mind-blowing lineup for 2011: Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, David Guetta, LMFAO, Foster the People, Gym Class Heroes and Hot Chelle Rae. Special guest hosts will include: Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom, Lamar Odom and Karmin, with more to be announced.
How can this concert get any better? Every year Z100′s Jingle Ball gives back to the community to celebrate the holiday season. This year’s official charity partner for Z100′s Jingle Ball is STOMP Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying/cyberbullying program for kids and teens. Fabulous & philanthropic! Tickets for this holiday bash will go on sale exclusively to ZVIP members via Ticketmaster starting Nov 1 at 4pm ET….tickets can get pretty pricey. If you can’t score them this year- no worries! Jingle Ball 2011 will kick off with the action-packed Z100 & Coca Cola’s All Access Lounge. The FREE event will include performances by Z100 artists and meet & greets with fan favorites. The FREE (did i mention free?) indoor festival will feature music as well as interactive displays from some of today’s hottest brands and products. The event will take place from 12 – 6 p.m. ET at Hammerstein Ballroom. See you there!
As you know New York City has always been a coffee town, it’s suddenly facing serious competition from a more delicate ladylike drink. Beautiful blondes aren’t the only tea fans- jet setters, pop stars and Wall Street gurus are buzzing over the leafy brew too! Facebook and Napster Co-Founder Sean Parker boasts a collection of more then 100 exotic teas, and Lady GaGa totes around a teacup like it’s a Birkin bag. New York’s fashion scene, (of course) is way ahead of the trend…duh. Almost every major designer has held a celebratory tea reception/tea party. This “chic” thing to do can also be an economic factor- instead of throwing a fancy lunch or cocktail reception; they’ll throw a tea party! Didn’t get your invite to one of these fab celeb studded tea parties? No worries- NYC suddenly has some supper sweet teashops popping up all over the city. If your in the West Village check out The Tea Set (cozy nook that seats 25), Soho home to Harney & Sons (tea store & tasting bar), and Upper East Side perfectly suits William Poll (a tea-sandwich shop).
Adding Champagne to the mix probably doesn’t dent the devotion of the young and thirsty, either. The Tea Set has created a tea-rrific $15 cocktail by mixing bubbly with syrup made from the store’s bestseller, Red Peach Vanilla tea… now that sounds like my cup of tea! After all, tea is perfect for frenzied New Yorkers with a big caffeine habit and little piece of mind. Tea promotes harmony and balance of life- drinking tea is an art of living.
Jennifer Lopez is always keeping it classy, from performing on stage- to spending time with her twins…this hot momma has got it going on! This pleated hobo bag features a spacious top zip entry, perfect for quick access while on the go. Inner zip pockets, snap in key holder and a mobile pocket keep you organized and on the ball. Wear with sienna braided handle or brass chain strap, for work or play. Sienna Ray’s “katie” pleated hobo in mapple is known as the best friend bag, supper reliable and strong. (who wouldn’t wanna be j.Lo’s bestyy?)
Css is an abbreviation for Cansei de Ser Sexy, which literally means, “got tired of being sexy.” This Brazilian rock band from São Paulo is labeled as part of the explosive “new rave” underground scene. Their catchy electronic hipster songs are in both English and Portuguese. The cool story behind their name was actually inspired by a quote from a Beyoncé song, who allegedly declared that she was “tired of being sexy.” The bands funky style and fierce spunk seem to be getting a lot of attention in the fashion world. During a trip to Paris I heard this awsome runway song on a TV fragrance commercial and was DYING to know who the artist was. Chloe featured CCS’s “Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above” in their fragrance add! Not only is this song amazing, but also their whole album has a very different sound…CSS is not afraid to express themselves through their style.
Always fierce and fabulous, Lady GaGa takes the crown as the most daring and highly watched woman in fashion. Her style is bold and brave, she is the true definition of a trend setter. Whether she is in a costume bodysuit baring it all or glammed Sienna Ray’s “roxanne” east west satchel in jet black is the way to go! Our roxy (for short) is a compact version of the milife bag, it’s dual compartments & straps allow you to store and go effortlessly. Lady GaGa can even stash her bottle of wine in this baby (although she seems like a vodka girl to me)- whatever the case “roxanne” will be your new best friend.
Baby bump Beyonce gets her ‘Audrey Hepburn” on for her new 60′s inspired “Countdown” video. This glamorous diva can pull off any look, pregnant and all! Her main character in the video is inspired by ‘Audrey Hepburn’ in Funny Face, mimicking the look in all black, long sleeves, and white socks with flats. In the video Beyonce is seen wearing a full closet’s worth of fun 60′s gear in dozens of variations of herself while keeping a glowing smile. The concept might be simple, but Beyonce’s intricate dance numbers and split screen effect brings a lot of energy and sass. Who else can be preggers and still dance like that? She has proved no matter what the circumstance may be- she will continue making outstanding music. Can you say fierce?!
The “hella good” mommy always looks rockstar chic, even if she is playing at the park with her son. Sienna Ray’s “milfie” in jet black leather is right up her alley. This bag is completely versatile…day to night and work to play. The cross body strap lets you have your hands free for mom duty with a casual look, and the long rolled handles transforms the bag for a more sophisticated feel.
Now does this L.A. based photographer have an eye for style! His unique use of lighting and composition sets his pictures apart from the crowd. With years of experience under his belt, Rob Daly’s focus ranges from high fashion to lifestyle photography – we love it all! My personal favorites are his signature action jumping shots, it really proves that he is not afraid to take risks. MAJOR UPDATE… we’re thrilled to leak the news that Sienna Ray and Rob Daly will join forces for a special, bonus S/S 2012 campaign shoot. Can you say fabulous!
…stay tuned for this inspirational collaboration. More of his stunning portraits can be found at RobDaly.com
There’s no doubt the fall weather is upon us. I’m sure your closets are stocked with luscious cashmere sweaters, beautiful scarves, and cozy mittens. The question is, is your hair (color) ready? Bleach blonde, fiery red ginger red, and chocolate brown were THE shades for the summer, but not so much for the fall. Take a look at these three “it” shades for the fall.
Don’t these celebrities look great with their maltese? They’re so small, fluffy, and loving!
Throughout the music video, I couldn’t help but notice her beautiful wedding dress! Her hair and make up were simple, but her dress was to die for. My favorite part is at the end where Beyonce walks away. That walk has Beyonce written all over it, and only she would be able to pull it off. I thought it was a very clever ending.
Have you ever had the best thing you never had? If so, do tell!
