Stating Emily Hall did well at her opening Fashion Week season would be a major understatement– we’d say walking in a total of eighteen shows in three different countries deserves major props at the very least! If that doesn’t grab your attention, the incredible collections she modeled continue to dominate our feeds. Keep scrolling to take a look back at the shows she walked in this season.

linebreakemily-hall-for-nyfwlinebreakFor anyone wondering if being a model is 24-7 glamour and luxury, take a look at our stunning little hustler, Emily HallAfter spending some time developing with us in Los Angeles, she was placed with IMG Models Worldwide and has been working on her grind ever since.

From developing a true love for the world of fitness and personal training, to attending castings all hours of the day and night, to learning healthy recipes and a love for cooking clean (you can check out her cooking on Instagram through #EmilyEats), she’s demonstrated the dedication and tenacity all top models strive for in this competitive industry. On top of that- her contageous congeniality and unshakable smile make her a personal favorite of everyone she works with. This girl is truly the total package- and we couldn’t be more happy for her success!

That #girlboss hustle has certainly paid off– this year during her first NYFW season she booked TEN shows, was featured by world-famous photog Phil Oh in Vogue’s Best Streetstyle, and was shot by famed Yeezy photog Driely Carter for a new faces lookbook.linebreak

“Hi guys! Giza here with the latest in NYFW style and trends. I’ve been scoping out the scene in Manhattan for the past week. Obviously, all of the S/S’ 15 styles are stunning, but I’ve spotted a few trends on the street that are sure to be pretty major this upcoming season. I’ve got all of the details for you in this week’s NYFW Recap:

 

Crazy prints

Designers weren’t holding back this season in the print department. Crazy prints, vibrant colors… Um hello, seventies. We’ve missed you. I’m not talking a hint of a print here and there. No. Full on head-to-toe psychedelic floral. I’m obsessed.

Fringe

Are you going through Coachella withdrawal? Don’t worry. April will be here before you know it. In the meantime, designers are giving you your fringe fix by way of awesome denim and leather jackets and suede bags. Fringe represents freedom and carelessness and passion. It’s no wonder we can’t seem to get enough these days.

Fishnet skirts

Gone are the days where fishnet only thrived through the cheeky little tights you wore with your favorite little minis. Fishnets are back in a new way this season. Say hello to the fishnet skirt. Designers are considerate of the sexy reputation that fishnets have attained over the year. Try pairing yours with a classy little button up top, sandals, and a topknot for an effortlessly chic look.

Midriff

The midriff trend is still going strong. I don’t think we’ll be mourning the death of crop tops any time soon. NYFW was littered with both models and the fashion-inclined alike baring their summer bods by way of tiny tops and bold bralettes. For SS ’15, swap your high-wasted shorts and skirts for classic mid-rise denim.

Beiges

Amidst all of the drama and eccentricities of fashion week, we can all find comfort in the fact that beige is still totally in. Not up for flashy prints and daring colors. It’s fine. Beige is still a safe space for you to comfortably channel your inner fashion savant. Timeless trench coats and sleek skirts are only a few of the ways that you can bring beige back in your spring and summer wardrobes. Just kidding about the whole “back” bit. Beige never truly went anywhere to begin with.

 

This NYFW was complete madness, I was running all over the place. Different parties, events, shows, and presentations. I am excited to share with you some of the experience!”

Hi fashionistas! Giza here with the latest in NYFW style and trends. I’ve been scoping out the scene in Manhattan for the past week. Obviously, all of the S/S ’15 styles are stunning, but I’ve spotted a few trends that are sure to be pretty huge this upcoming season. I’ve got all of the details for you in this week’s NYFW Recap.

My favorite would have to be this netting trend. Rodarte killed it with their net dresses and skirts; but they definitely weren’t the only ones thinking netting this season!

Another trend that I have always been a fan of are the trenches and menswear-esqe coats. I’m a sucker for when a womenswear line adds a menswear twist.

Beiges and neutrals were totally in for this season. I don’t often venture into the bold world of color so this was right up my alley.

A style that I am familiar with popped up quite a bit on the runway, the culotte. Culottes are pretty much under the knee, usually flowy, shorts that might look like a skirt from afar. There were some designers that executed it in a very modern way.

Patterned prints were a must for designers.  This season without fail, bold patterns were a big statement.

When you think of spring pastels tend to come to mind, and without a doubt- pastels were all over the runway. I believe that Elizabeth and James did it best!

Again, I’m a sucker for a menswear twist.  I loved it when trousers made repeat appearances!

I’m all for a good pair of heels but when I saw that flats and “flatforms” (which I have a love-hate relationship with) were everywhere, a part of me exploded with happiness. Check out how Coach and MM6 Maison Martin Margiela did flatforms, not bad!

When done right ruffles, frills, and pleats can drive a girl wild. Juan Carlos Obando did it so well!

I love pushing boundaries; so when I saw how Jason Wu used sheers, I got pretty inspired!  Check it out for yourself but be careful how you do it.  It takes some finesse for sure.

Last but not least, flawy fabrics were pretty major. I have to admit that when I wear anything even the slightest bit flowy I immediately feel majestic and mythical. I would wear Juan Carlos Obando’s flowy look every chance I get!

Stay tuned for Part 2 later this week!  I’ll be covering all of the most coveted NYFW street style trends- including my own!

maggimaecover3[1] Being in LA, where a beach day is a good idea all year-round, we’re big fans of braided up-dos. Salty, wind-swept hair after a long beach day? No problem; hide the mess in a messy braid and transition from day to night without breaking out your arsenal of hair products and tools. This is no secret to us Angelenos. But this year, the beach babe’s go-to braided, tangled, messy updo is officially NYFW-approved!

Donna Karan’s Spring/Summer 2015 beauty statement was definitely a new concept. People are calling it the ‘hair lanyard’. Hold up: does this mean we can actually use those finely-honed knotting skills we learned back in summer camp for something other than a plastic keychain? ..Yes!?  We dig it.

On the same day, 3.1 Philip Lim displayed his first NYFW up-do ever. Meet: the flyaway, knotted bun.

Rag & Bone, Dannijo, Tome and Marissa Webb all used messy knots and braids in their runway looks too.

As did Street-Style queen Chiarra Ferragni and other Fashion Week-goers.

One of our favorite hair stylists, Cantrell Mitchell showed us how to get our own version of the trending messy braids and buns in just a few short steps with Maggimae using 4 standard french braids pinned together into a bun.
