NUE by Shani Featured on the

Steve Harvey Show



Steve Harvey took a cue from the TODAY Show on what women want.

With help from celebrity stylist Lawrence Zarian, the pair helped

women "forget their flaws and flaunt their assets." This involved

showing how to dress for their body, shape and size. What designer

helps in this department? NUE by Shani of course! For someone who

wants to flatter their hips, arms and/or back, the Steve Harvey Show

recommends this NewYorkDress designer. With a silhouette that

naturally shapes the body, it's easy to see the difference this

dress can make. The color-blocking brings attention to her face,

while the neckline balances her hips and gives the impression of a

smaller waist. The model was smiling from ear to ear!

girl has tried it. The cat-eye can create a sultry or girlish look

depending how you play up your makeup. Here are the cat-eye

queens for perfect inspiration. Start taking notes!

Whether you're home for Thanksgiving or attending a Christmas

event, you need a fabulous 'do to accompany your new holiday dress!

These holiday hairdos are no muss, no fuss looks that are easy and

worthy of accessories. You can try a ballerina bun, which is simple and

elegant; or a braid crown for a lovely look that keeps your hair pulled

back. If you're feeling lazy, go for a low, messy pony with some sort

of sparkle. Visit our accessories section for more ideas!

NYFW: Backstage Beauty with Sherri Hill



The beauty behind this season's Sherri Hill show was fun, fresh and fabulous.

The runway hair was simple, yet sophisticated with low, teased-out ponytails

that showed off the neckline of each dress. The tough 'do was a perfect match

to the sweetly groomed look of each model's makeup. Strong brows, long

lashes and soft pink lips made up many of the runway looks. Take a peek at

Beauty Trends From The Emmys



We've got a ton of fabulous beauty trends from this year's Emmy awards! Many

opted for chic windswept hair. We love how versatile a short cut can be. A

popular trend was dark smokey eyes. We spotted this classic red carpet look

on a variety of celebs. We're always fond of a red lip and these stars wore theirs

with pride. A surprising trend was the "no makeup" makeup. Certain celebs chose

a beautiful bare-faced look that we definitely loved. Our favorite trend was the

small pops of silver and pastels. They're easy to incorporate in small doses.

Dos and Don'ts of Wedding Makeup

Dos and Don'ts of Wedding Makeup



Do plan a spa day the week of your wedding to relax and prep.


Don't try any new soaps or perfumes the week before your wedding.

You could have an allergic reaction to something different.


Do keep your wedding look simple and polished, especially when it comes to

hair and makeup. You want to look like the best version of yourself. Now is

not the time to try that crazy blue eye shadow!


Don't get a new haircut the week of your wedding. If it doesn't turn out

the way you want it to, there's not much you can do. Make sure to schedule

your haircut a few months in advance.


Do try a classic pink nail in case you need to make last minute touch-ups.


Don't leave your house unprepared for beauty hiccups. Pack things like

safety pins, Q-tips and bobby pins for any issues that may arise.


Do wear waterproof mascara. It's an emotional day and you should prepare

for the possibility of tears.


The same goes for lipstick! Do wear a lipstick that lasts through kisses

and food.


Most important...


Don't forget to do a beauty run-through before your big day!





Makeup Tips For Graduation!

Makeup Tips For Graduation!



We've got every graduation dress you can imagine, but what about makeup?

We're here to recommend the beauty essentials for that important day! You'll

want long-lasting coverage through the ceremony, pictures and dinner. What

do you need to achieve that? These products below!

Primer


Any good makeup artist will tell you to start with primer. It prepares your

face for the products. The primer makes sure nothing runs or looks shiny

as the day continues. It's one product that is pretty handy for photos!



Long-Lasting Foundation


You could go with your usual foundation, but the long-lasting variety does

the job quite well. Make sure you test the foundation a few days before and

apply it evenly across your face.



HD Setting Powder


The last product for a flawless finish is HD Setting Powder. Once your base

is applied, set the products with this powder using a large powder brush.

Your makeup should stay in place all day long!



Rosy Blush


Your next step is a natural-looking blush. Gel blush works on all skin types,

while cream blush is better on combination skin and powder is your best bet if

oily is your norm.



Neutral Eye Shadow


You want to put your best foot forward this exciting day so we recommend

keeping it simple with a natural hue and maybe some subtle shimmer.



Light Lipgloss


The same goes for your gloss. A dark lip might work most days, but keeping

the color simple puts the focus on your beautiful smile and important people

around you.


Once you've done that last step, you're ready for a full day of festivities.

Go forth and graduate looking gorgeous in NewYorkDress! Don't forget to

enter Dress and Tell after all the fab photos are taken.





Mac Duggal's Advice on How To Avoid Counterfeit Dresses

Mac Duggal's Advice on How To

Avoid Counterfeit Dresses



Every year, NewYorkDress designer Mac Duggal does an experiment to spotlight

the pitfalls of buying counterfeit dresses. This year was no different, but it did

have an added twist of possible health risks! After dealing with issues that come

from shopping at a counterfeit company, Mac Duggal's social media manager,

Nicole Schultz, tried on the knockoff dress for about ten minutes. What she

didn't expect was a batch of scratchy hives! We're sure the poor-quality fabric

was to blame. Highlighted on Mac Duggal's website, here are a few things to

remember when shopping for your prom dress...


-If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Deep designer discounts

are a red flag when shopping at counterfeit shops.


-If the color options largely differ from the designer website, that would also

raise some doubts.


-If you get this far, watch out for the name "CoCo" in your confirmation e-mail.

Apparently this name is typically used by counterfeit sellers.


You can easily see the difference in quality from the photo above. For some very

real prom dresses shop our current Mac Duggal favorites!

Prom Beauty Dos and Don'ts



Prom night can be a bit hectic so here are a few do's and don'ts to get

you through the big night.



Do: Try your dress on multiple times before prom so you can make any

necessary alterations.

to make sure the heels are comfortable.



Do: Pack a beauty kit of bobby pins, lipstick, mints, safety pins, deodorant

and doubled sided tape. You'll be ready for any mishaps that might occur

with you or your friends.



Don't: Forget to book everything in advance from your limo to your hair and

makeup appointment. Make sure to confirm the week before.



Do: Use a fine-tooth comb to gently tease your hair. It'll last longer

throughout the night.



Don't: Over-do it on makeup. you wanted to look like the best version of

yourself. Choose one feature to highlight and down-play the rest.



Do: Take a ton of photos and have as much fun as possible!



Don't: Forget to enter our prom contest!

Summer Trend: Bold Fuchsia Lips



Want to try something bold this summer? We recommend a passionate pink

pucker to brighten your day. Of all the colorful hues of summer, fuchsia

is one of our favorites. It's sugar and spice and everything nice all in

one lipstick. Whether you go matte or go glossy, you're sure to be pretty

in pink with this color. Make sure to keep it classy and minimal with the

rest of your makeup to let the bold color shine through!

Fabulous Summer Bobs



The weather is heating up and we've all got the urge to cut our hair. We

realized that of all the hair cuts out there, our favorite is the bob!

Whether shaggy or sleek, a bob is the perfect summer hairstyle. You get

the length, but your hair still stays off your neck. Plus a bob always

looks chic and carefree. Just look at some of our favorite celebrities

rocking this summer-do.

Designer Beauty Tips




NewYorkDress designer, Lela Rose, has some very important beauty tips!

She recently confided to Fashionista,


“My mother always told me for youthful skin, drink lots of water (never

from plastic bottles) and to always take off your makeup before bed. I

always use Lancome eye make-up remover and make sure to stay hydrated.”


You heard the lady! It's an easy recommendation and if our skin looks half

as good as hers, it will be a success.


Here are few more of her favorite items as told to Harper's Bazaar.


“Ted Gibson’s Beautiful Hold Hairspray is my favorite as it’s light and doesn't

look or feel like hairspray. And Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Curl

Lengthen Mascara is another favorite—I try to remember not to pump my

mascara as it lets in air and make it look dry and clumpy. I just twist it

around to keep the mascara moist. Also, I buy all my products from

Beauty.com. Truly, having one place that carries everything is what helps

me survive the party season!”



We don't know about you, but our beauty list just got longer!

We love hitting the streets for our street style shoot. There's so much of the city we've yet to discover with new neighborhoods and new faces around every corner. Whether we're walking past a construction site, stopping in for a treat at our favorite cafe or catching the sunset on top of a rooftop, we always make sure our model Casie leaves a lasting impression with her impeccable style.

Sparkling Cocktail


This cocktail dress was an absolute showstopper during our last street style shoot. Casie looked drop dead gorgeous in Jovani S4247 -a perfectly sultry cocktail dress completely covered in shiny rhinestones. You'll make a statement in this body conscious dress! We styled Casie with beautiful chandelier earrings and strappy rhinestone heels but left her hair naturally loose and with a slightly smokey eye and neutral lip.

Casie went for silver chic in Tony Bowls TS11274. The bodice of this icy gown is ruched for a body conscious fit, while draping sheer fabric lays elegantly on top. We love the embellished asymmetrical neckline, which adds a flash of sparkle to the silver shimmer of this gown. We accessorized Casie's look with a rhinestone bracelet and drop earrings and with a fabulous pair of embellished heels.

Casie and the Sequins


The day we shot this sequin mini dress, we kept bumping into street art and instead of looking the other way, we incorporated the city's artsy corners into our shoot. The final verdict, of course, was that we loved Casie's Boutique Ginger mini more than any piece of art we saw on the walls. We didn't have to do much for this shoot-Casie wore her blonde locks naturally, with natural makeup and a pair of crystal embellished ankle strap stilettos, (Tony Bowls Jenny). This dress features a sheer decolletage which follows in the footsteps of the illusion trend. The body conscious bodice is completely covered in multicolored sequins, making it one seriously sparkly mini party dress.

Our last shoot with Casie took us to pretty amazing rooftops with scenic views of the city skyline. No one's eyes were on the skyline as Casie floated in Mac Duggal 61041R, $698. This illusion gown features rich red lace layered on top of nude sheer fabric and long diaphanous fabric that floats to the floor. Casie accented her look with our favorite opalescent chandelier earrings, Jason J31, $65. Where would you go in this gown?

Body Conscious


The little black dress was officially revamped on our last street style shoot. Our model Casie chose this body conscious mini dress by Sticks and Stones. Following the rising popularity of body-con dresses, Casie wore Sticks and Stones 9185, ($278) around the East Village, loving the little details like the diamond shaped back cut out, ruffled neckline and sheer lace sleeves. This mini dress taps in on two of this season's continuous trends: lace and he ever popular body conscious fit.

One reason we love New York is the ability to step out of the office and our of our studios to do a photo shoot. With the gorgeous city as the ultimate backdrop, we really did feel like the world was ours and our model Casie made this dress hers. It's about to be fall in the city and we wanted to catch the changing colors, moods and style during our stroll in the Lower East Side. With taxis buzzing along and sidewalk cafes filled with chatter, Casie took it all in dressed in Boutique Charlotte, ($189) in teal and Tony Bowls Jenny, ($170) heels.

Savannah Lathem Writes for NewYorkDress!

Hello NewYorkDress Fans!
It was such a wonderful experience attending The 33rd Annual Young Artist Awards in Hollywood, CA. I was nominated for the Best Lead Performance in the Film Category. As always, I turned to NewYorkDress.com to find my dress for the event.  They worked closely with me and found the perfect Red Carpet look.  

I am 14-years old, 5"4, 99 lbs, and I often struggle to find designers that have the right look for me. After all, I don't want to look too much like a "little girl" or too much like an "adult", but NewYorkDress made it easy. After understanding my height, measurements, and complexion, they immediately found me the perfect dress, Sherri Hill 8422. It was a match made in heaven!  It made me feel and look like a Princess on my magical night.  I felt so confident and age appropriate. I loved the way it flowed with the layers and ruffles, giving me the young, fresh, vibrant look that I needed.  I also loved that it was fitted around my hips and sparkled with sequins, which helped give me the "teenage-edgy style" that I wanted.
Savannah Lathem in Sherri Hill


Girls, I know that homecoming is just around the corner and I hope you know that you can always count on NewYorkDress.com to meet your fashion needs. They will help you find the designer look that fits YOU.  There are 7-billion people in the world, but there is only one beautiful YOU!  I say, be of yourself and don't compromise for anything less than what you are looking for.

I am so looking forward to NewYorkDress.com fitting me for the "California Solo" Premiere, starring Robert Carlyle (Once Upon a Time).  I play Robert Carlyle's daughter, Arianwen, who is also a typical teenager like me.  California Solo will be in theaters this fall.
California Solol


I am also honored to write blogs for NewYorkDress.com and I am looking forward to hearing from you. So please check back and let me know what you think about the latest teen-tween styles, cosmo needs, and fashion accessories.

Exclusive Behind the Scenes Look at Prom Registry 2012 Video!
Thursday February 02, 2012 4 Comments




Monday January 27th, 2012

I'm here in the NYD studio looking over the dresses, accessories, and make-up from last night’s video shoot. We shot on Wall St, in Manhattan and finished around 1:00 am. Celebratory cocktails were of course in order. Now, as I place red lipstick back into Nashlly's (model) make-up case, it reminds me of the sultry vixen character she played, as well as the mark it left on her glass.



There were two main characters for this shoot. My styling choices were (as they always should be) meant to enhance the characters of our story. For this concept I chose super glam, nude dresses, with a ton of embellishments (BG Haute E01017). I wanted the accessories to compliment the looks and not detract from the beauty of the dresses.



When I created the story for look one, I was thinking of a girl who loves big bold statement pieces. I started the story with this amazing pop of color, the bright coral bag. Knowing that the dress itself is a statement, I decided to keep the rest of the jewelry and the shoes monotone, with clear stones, just for sparkle.




LOOK ONE - Bag: Jessica McClintock VA5097A (Coral), Earrings: WF Collection 291 (Silver), Bracelet: Jason J1200 (Gold), Shoes: Allure "Shimmer" (Gold) // LOOK TWO - Earrings: Jason KKE099 (Multi), Bracelet: Jason DB1269 (Multi), Bangle: WF Collection CT115 (Fuschia), Shoes: Alisha Hill S1145


I approached the second story from the opposite point of view, by getting the pop color from jewelry. The shoes continue the nude feel but shine in multiple iridescent colors, from there I went on to choose jewel tone chandeliers, a delicate colorful bracelet, and a statement bangle that really catches your eye, but doesn't distract. Keeping the clutch simple let the colorful jewelry take center stage, spicing up the look without making too daring a choice.




I'm already preparing for tomorrow's exclusive studio shoot and I can't wait to give you another look from behind the scenes. Stay tuned!

What's Your Season?

What's Your Season? 

season color image

Analyzing your skin tone and (natural) hair and eye color can help you determine which colors work best on you.

To start, find the undertone color of your skin by looking at the inside of your arm in natural daylight. Then, use the list below to decide which season most accurately describes your complexion.

Winter (think Kim Kardashian, Lucy Liu, Courtney Cox, Catherine Zeta Jones) Winter is a cool tone. People with winter complexions have blue or pink/rosy undertones. Skin can be pale and porcelain white, yellowish-olive, or dark. Winters are generally brunettes with deeply colored eyes. Many Asians and African Americans fall into this category. Natural white-blondes may also be winters. Those with the winter color profile have a lot of depth to their coloring and a lot of contrast between their hair color, eye color and skin tone.

Best Colors for Winters are hues that are sharp, stark and clear. You will look best in intense, rich colors, like black, navy blue, red, and hot pink. For lighter colors, wear bright white or icy pastels, such as like cool blues and pinks.

Worst Colors for Winters: Avoid dressing in earthy tones and subdued colors like beige, orange and gold. They will make you look faded and ashen.

Summer (think Gwenyth Paltrow, Dakota Fanning, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon) Summer is also a cool tone and with blue and/or pink undertones. Their skin is very pale and pink. Summer coloring usually occurs in natural blondes, and even pale-skinned brunettes with pale eyes. More often than not, winters are brunettes and summers are natural blondes.

Best Colors for Summers: Summers have a low level of contrast between their hair, eye color and skin tone. For you to look your best, choose soft neutrals and pastels, as well as muted colors with cool undertones. Powder blue, dusty pink, mauve, lavender, plum, and pale yellow are all great color choices.

Worst Colors for Summers: Avoid intense, vivid hues because they will look harsh and drown you out. Also stay away from earth tones and orange, which will wash you out.

Autumn (think Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Natalie Portman) Autumn is a warm tone and people with this complexion have golden undertones in their skin, like a pale peach, golden beige or golden brown. Many redheads and brunettes with golden brown eyes fall into this category. However, golden blonde and black hair coloring can also fall into this range.

Best Colors for Autumn: Rich golden, spicy and earthy colors will accent your complexion. Therefore, look for a warm undertone when selecting a color. You can wear both muted and rich warm colors that are seen in autumn leaves and spice colors, such as camel, beige, olive, orange, gold, and dark brown. You will also look great in a rich warm grey.

Worst Colors for Autumn: Stay away from clear, bright colors and black and white, which will make your look tired and faded. Also steer clear of pastels and blue tones, which will look cold against your complexion and give you a pale appearance.

Spring (think Lindsay Lohan, Anna Kournikova, Mischa Barton) Spring is also a warm tone. People of this complexion have subtle golden undertones and are usually creamy white or peach. Springs have extremely light, ivory skin color, with usually natural golden blonde, auburn, or strawberry blond hair. Springs also have very clear, light blue and green colored eyes. Freckles and rosy cheeks are also characteristics of this group. If you can’t decide weather you are an autumn or a spring, springs tend to have pale eyes while autumns have dark eyes.

Best Colors for Spring: Springs can wear very pale, soft colors, such as peach, camel, golden yellow,golden brown, and aqua. You will also look fabulous in ivory, bright greens, true reds, clear blues and coral. Your colors may be particularly hard to find because they can never be too muted or too dark.

Worst Colors for Spring: Avoid black and white, which are too contrasting for you. Also stay away from dark, dull colors.




What shape are you?

Beauty comes in all shapes. What shape are you? 

body type image

Hour Glass (think Salma Hayek) This shape is coveted by many, but enjoyed by few! With this type of figure, pretty much anything goes. Lucky you!

Triangle (think Jennifer Garner) You can choose to emphasize the upper body with a dress that has good support and a deep neckline. If you want to de-emphasize the upper body, wear a dress that attracts the eye to the waistline.

Pear (think Jennifer Lopez) Try an a-line or full shirt to de-emphasize your hips. Try a fitted top to draw more attention to the upper portion of the body.

Rectangle (think Kate Moss) You can create "curves" with a bell-shaped dress that draws attention to the bust line. Dresses with belts also help create curves.

Apple (think Renée Zellweger) Try an empire waist. You won't have to worry about it being too tight on the waist or hips. A shorter dress will bring attention to your legs rather than your mid-section.




A Prom-goer Seeks Fashion Advice from NewYorkDress Stylists!
Tuesday January 24, 2012 Post a comment


NewYorkDress.com supporter Christina wrote in from Egypt to seek the expert advice of our stylist team in hopes of getting dress, hair and make-up suggestions for her prom this year. Standing at a petite 5 feet tall and having a pear shaped body, our stylists recommended Allure Dress 6410N ($338.00) as a top dress choice. The empire waist and short length of the skirt will help create an elongated body illusion.

Out Stylist’s Suggestion for Christina!

Our stylists paired this gorgeous dress with Benjamin Walk “Tahiti” shoes ($117.00) because of their delicate simplicity.

For her hair, the stylists suggested an up-do (pictured above) which will show off the dress’ sweetheart neckline and her shoulders. This will also help create an elongating effect. Finally, for her make-up – our experts recommended a natural smoky eye and a neutral tone for the lips like a sheer coral gloss.

We think she’ll look gorgeous! To check out these and other styles visit our Prom 2012 dress page or our “As Seen In” section for styles featured in Seventeen Prom and Teen Prom magazines!
