TONY COHEN: “I started looking at the “mannerisms” off people talking , instead of just listening what they had to say. I started with the inside and then working to the “outer lines” off the designs, as working from the inside out. The effect is a more “organic” self happening off the eventual design.” -Tony Cohen

BEAUTY: Napoleon Perdis said of the make-up for the Tony Cohen show, “The look is very opera goes to the club, with a unique edge.” Models had charcoal and heather smoky eyes with voluminous lashes and radiant skin. Hair was pulled into a french twist and adorned with leather ribbons intertwined. Though I didn’t get really great pictures because I sat second row, I nabbed a fabulous swag bag with many of the beauty products used on the models, including my new found favorite lip gloss, the Napoleon Perdis Protege Lip Gloss. The color is incredibly versatile and looks amazing on my lips. It has a touch of peppermint and glides on smooth without leaving my lips goopy or sticky. Best of off the gloss is moisturizing and leaves my lips kissably soft (perfect for a Valentine’s night ;-).
MY REVIEW: What a great way to spend Valentine’s Day. What woman doesn’t love leather and lace? Tony Cohen wowed at his fall presentation with a sleek and sexy collection that started with black rose petals on the runway. The color palette was predominantly black with a splash of silver and burgundy. The showstopper was a beautifully handmade silk jewel embroidered mesh leggings that was very sensual and sexy. Tony Cohen does draping exquisitely with unexpected touches that really elevate each piece to new heights. I was particularly impressed with a jewel embellished mini-dress with silk mesh maxi sleeves for its depth, movement and character. I am all about wearability of pieces that were sent down the runway for fall 2010 and Tony Cohen’s was no exception.
