Like a lot of people, I’m completely addicted to Instagram… and to my iPhone 5c (I’ve tried 4 different iPhones so far & this one takes the best pictures)! So this season, I thought I would use it to create my Fashion Week diary… outside the actual show venues. Here are the New York moments that really made my week!
With my faithful ally… ready to take on this adventure (at the BCBG after-party at the top of The Standard)
This is one of my favourite pictures. I was stepping out of the Apple Store in Soho and Scott Schuman (who had just given a talk about his work) was also leaving with girlfriend Garance Doré. At first, I wasn’t sure I wanted to post this image because part of me felt I was stealing a moment of intimacy…but in this crazy superficial week, this moment (and their love) was so genuine that it just made me feel happy.
With the freezing cold taking over NYC, coats and hats were the real stars.
Another shot of how to stay fashionable in the cold. I love how this could easily be two old ladies chatting… and not a pair of street style photographers.
On my last day at NYFW, I visited my friend Gillian at her Teen Vogue offices. We had a coffee in the cafeteria and she told me all about how things worked in the Conde Nast Building. Of course we talked about Anna Wintour… Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief has her own table, that is always set and that no one can sit at.
I don’t know how she was dealing with the cold, but she looks beautiful.
A much needed food break at one of my favourite spots in NY: Chelsea Market.
Why ride a taxi when you can meet these people in the subway?
Often celebrities can be very different from what we see in magazines… except Diane Kruger! She was just as flawless at the Peter Pilotto for Target VIP launch.
Anywhere in the world, press events always remind me how lucky we are to do this job…
I met Evgeniya & Ksenniya completely randomly and we decided to go for dinner. It was a great night!
This was one of the best outfits I saw at NYFW. Just love the contrast between the classic camel coat and the ripped jeans.
The Moschino window in Meatpacking District…
If it wasn’t for the print and shoes, this look could have very well been worn in the 19th century.
This is why Giovanna Battaglia is one of my style icons…
Shish Kabab in the city!
Dinner with fellow Canadian journalist Andrew & blogger Jessica.
Cutest matching couple…
At J. Crew, I loved that Creative Director Jenna Lyons just chatted with her guests about the collection. No fuss, just fashion.
Doughnut bar at the Rag & Bone show
Another great fashion moment in the subway…
Couldn’t have made it through the week without my dear friend Rodolphe…
As the Sochi Olympics were starting, we could feel Russia’s inspiration everywhere.
Vibrant colours just light up winter!
Street style posing 101… when wearing a cape
All men should go to NYC to learn about layering…
The queen of colour… a.k.a. Susie Bubble.
It’s going to sound weird, but I don’t like leaving NYFW without seeing Bill Cunningham. And this season I was getting pretty discouraged… but on my very last day I saw him at the J. Crew presentation.
Now I was ready to head back to Montreal!
