Fashion Week

When I asked Kent Worthington to let me take a look inside his NYFW gear bag and tell me how he gets kitted out to support our Beauty team with their exclusive backstage reports, I wasn’t expecting him to say this: “I like to build a little shrine in my hotel room using some spiritual earth elements to ground, support and bring me energy during the week. The rocks are a great element for the week and often I carry them in my pocket around the bustling city to ground me so I don’t get carried away.”

Naturally, I needed to know more.

Never has the trope “Tough job, but someone’s gotta do it” seemed as oddly apt as it does right now. On one hand, I’m counting the days until New York Fashion Week kicks off—two weeks to go!—while on the other, I’m frozen just thinking about it all. And then I think of Crystal.

We’re lucky enough to count street-style photographer Crystal Nicodemus among our contributors; each Fashion Week she’s out there documenting the trends, the scene and the best-dressed players. And when we say “out there,” we mean out there. You can’t report on emerging street trends from inside a cozy coffee shop. Let’s let her tell it like it is—and like it’s going to be, as the next round of runways and real ways approaches…

Our Director of Creative Projects is maybe one of the most colorful people we know—like, an animated rainbow with pink puppies follows her everywhere she goes. It’s pretty magical. But New York in midwinter is a cruel place. Pastel puppies or not. And really, when travel is concerned, less is very often more.

Even when that travel takes you to Fashion Week.

So let this glimpse into O.K.’s luggage be a lesson to all of us: It’s chic to streamline. And to wear sensible shoes in subhuman temperatures. These shoes and coats are our Pop-In Shop curator’s all-black-everything staples for Fall Fashion Week, and they are also our way of saying to you, “Heads up! We’re going full-on with this thing.”

In the days and weeks to come, you’ll hear from more Nordstrom insiders about their packing strategies, and we’ll get geared up in other ways, too—like, with actual gear. Because, yeah, how does our social media team capture those killer backstage beauty moments? (And everything else?)

So bundle up, friends—Olivia Kim does—and stay tuned.

At Rolando Santana, Director of Makeup Artistry Romero Jennings was inspired by the idea of a glowing, daytime smoky eye. Using eyeshadow creams, he created a satiny lavender shade that swept over the upper eyelid and wrapped around the outside corner of the eye to the lower eyelid. Vanilla Pigment was the star product for the skin. He accented cheekbones by buffing the product to reveal its pearl finish.

Anya Ziourova is on board with the ’70s revival. These high-waisted bell bottoms are making me swoon with envy. I must find a pair immediately! Pairing them with a delicate bow blouse and sky-high platforms, Anya turned casual retro into high-end chic. As one of Russia’s leading fashion editors and stylists, Anya is a master of trends.

I’m a sucker for a great smile and Elaine Welteroth has one of the best in the biz. This Teen Vogue beauty editor is obviously in the know about all the best beauty trends, including the bold wine-colored lip.

Her outfit today is moto inspo, all the way! Love the zipper details, the chain-strap Chanel, and the classic draped biker jacket. Her flared mini and peep-toe booties add some hip allure to this biker babe ensemble. Tough-girl chic!

Elena Perminova causes a frenzy wherever she goes, thanks to her modelesque looks and fantastic personal style. Elena can wear anything, and I love that kind of versatility. Today’s outfit has ’70s-era inspiration, but is modernized by her tonal palette and premium pieces. The thigh-high boot is still mega popular and it pairs seamlessly with this soft sweater dress. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: J’adore!
