Happy Friday! I wanted to send you off into the weekend with the latest and greatest that I’ve experienced, tested, and heard this week from the worlds of fashion and beauty. Enjoy!Last night was the Style Coalition Fashion 2.0 Social Media Awards,a black tie affair that upped the ante with a bevy of familiar fashion faces presenting, winning, and being honored, such as Robert Verdi (the host of the evening), designer Zac Posen, model Coco Rocha, and TV personality and style expert Jeannie Mai. Award winners included Marc Jacobs (@MarcJacobsIntl) for Best Twitter, Nordstrom for the Best Pinterest Page, Nike Fuel Band for Best Wearable Tech, DKNY for Best Online Campaign (DKNY Draft), and the Fashion Visionary Award was given to Warby Parker.

Kicking off Fashion Week this season was the third annual Fashion 2.0 Social Media Awards, and it was OUT of this world! With Robert Verdi as the host and Norma Kamali as the keynote speaker, it was truly a night to remember! Kamali waxed poetic about her deep-seeded love of technology, and how now is such an exciting time to be living, working, and being apart of the incredible changes in our world and culture thanks to technology. I loved her constant sense of curiosity, desire to learn, and how modest she is about what a tremendous trailblazer she’s been in her career.
