If you haven’t heard, New York Fashion Week is officially here. Last Friday I went to Project Runway’s 5th season 1st runner up Korto Momolu’s Fall/Winter ’14 presentation. The chic “Urban Coup” collection featured a blend of military-inspired and sophisticated pieces. “The collection pays tribute to the increasing strength and precision of women’s wear” by way of “fresh cuts and silhouettes to complement the modern woman’s lifestyle,” according to the official press release.

SheaMoisture sponsored the event and called in hair stylist and expert Diane C. Bailey, who’s also the brand’s beauty ambassador, and celebrity MUA Jackie Gomez to create the models’ runway looks. A few moments before the show, I had time to chat with Jackie backstage about the inspiration for the night’s beauty. She said the aesthetic was retro 1930s glam with a twist. The “twist” was an emerald green lip, versus the classic ruby red, created with gloss and SheaMoisture’s green “Elsa” eye shadow form the “A Better Way to Beautiful” cosmetics collection–set to launch at Target stores this spring! Hair was all swept to one side and spiraled in big voluminous curls.
