Fast Five with Marina Makaron

Marina Makaron, owner and designer of Marina Makaron Moscow, is a world traveler, designer, mother, blonde, and all around fun woman! She splits her time between Moscow and Philadelphia, but on occasion stops by her flat in NYC. This creator loves working with different fabrics and has built an empire around her colorful silk pieces.

What’s happening now: Marina just wrapped up her Fall 2013 show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia and is focusing on pushing her current spring collection. Rumor has it that more info on Marina can be found HERE and on her brand page.

IMC: Whose shoes are you wearing?

MM: Lately – Miu Miu

IMC: What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

IMC: Where were you last night?

MM: Golf & Yacht Club Pirogovo

IMC: What do you wear to bed?

MM: Commando, Sir

Grooming Guide for Guys

Did you catch The Grooming Products Every Man Needs in His Medicine Cabinet yesterday? If not check it out! Here’s what part of it looks like…

In addition to the suggestions I listed in my column, I also think teeth whitening can be a great way for men (or women!) to boost their appearance. I love the Bleach Bright at Sunmyst Tanning Spa. The 15-20 minute whitening session lights teeth 2-8 shades with almost no sensitivity!

Oh and Khiel’s new location at the Shops at Liberty Place is bright and welcoming! Makes me want to go shopping there instead of ordering online.

Here’s a picture from last weekend when I got the Bleach Bright treatment and a Miami spray tan!

Lancôme X Jason Wu

Two weeks after the Lancôme X Alber Elbaz collaboration was announced, another fashion icon tells WWD of his collection with Lancôme. Jason Wu told WWD, “Beauty has always been extremely important to the Jason Wu label and I’ve made it an integral part of my fashion shows.” As of now the collection is only planned to launch in the US, but don’t be surprised if it pops up in the UK too!

Here are some looks from Wu’s pre-fall 2013 collection..

Another Carmelita Couture

I wish I would have positioned myself better. A lot of my shots weren’t so good. There were many looks from Joan Shepp I loved.


From: Metro Mens Clothing (I love this look. Wish I got a better picture!)

I just downloaded the app, Vine. Mini videos integrated with Twitter are a great tool for fashion bloggers and brands to communicate more with their audiences. Here are some of my Vines from the night.

I also made a two Vines of Denise Fike, but I’ll share those in a few days when I upload the cute portrait she drew of me!


My friend Priya went to Gorgeous as well. Here is our Instagram!
