Vainglorious Fashion Week Survival Guide by Wesley Rowell

On your mark..get set...GLOW!

So if you were one of the "lucky" ones to get invited to Kanye West's show on Roosevelt Island outside in the late summer Zika mosquito heat then you at some miserable point realized you needed this. My advice? Plan ahead; better safe than sorry. There is more outside fashion to come.

If you don't have this in your makeup bag by now I have no doubt that you have been living under a rock. In a galaxy far far away called "No Makeup Land". Do yourself a favor and get the mini size so you can throw it in your purse. Repeat after me. A. Must. Have.

Flying on airplanes, sitting in totally non-airconditioned venues, or being outside in hot sweaty late summer Roosevelt Zika Mosquito Island (sorry Kayne), what's a boy (or girl) to do when you need refreshment? And no, I don't mean white wine spritzers. 

I don't always wear lipstick, but when I do, it's this pitch-perfect red that will take you from your morning briefing to Marc Jacobs to the after party. And then the whole thing again tomorrow...

Got 5 minutes before the Uber comes to take you to Carolina Herrera? Arms and legs looking like Caspar the Friendly Ghost?? Relax, chill, don't worry. We got this.


Ok. So. You have a 10am with Anna Wintour uptown, a 1pm downtown with Hermes, a 3pm underground Vetements show that you can't tell anyone else about...oh wait...that's my fantasy life oops!...Anyway the perfect fragrance for all your fantasies and realities from AM to PM...

I don't know how you ladies do it, day in and day out. Louboutin, Zanotti, Blahnik, Balenciaga. Gorgeous 6 inch torture chambers. Bless you.

Girl you were out until WHAT time last last night? And you have an 8am Skype meeting with editors from Vogue Japan? And afternoon tea with Kim K? And dinner with the hot guy from Tinder?...Sorry there goes my pesky fantasy life again-except for the Km K part...But if you are at all like me and burn the candle on both ends you will thank me for this face-saving tip.
