Last year, timed to coincide with New York Fashion Week, Anna Wintour and friends decided they needed to restore consumer confidence and get people buying again. So they planned a massive street party, all revolving around shopping. Stores stayed open late, tons of places offered fabulous gifts with purchase, celebrities and stars and supermodels and fashion legends were out in force, and everyone had a wonderful time. Well they’re doing it again this year — and I’ve heard only vague rumors, but other cities around the world are getting in on the action. Ask your local retailers if they’re planning anything for Fashion Night Out.
Anyway, there will be far more to do in NYC than any one person will be able to enjoy, but I had to tell you guys about this one event in particular.
Bergdorf Goodman is hosting a makeup artist contest called Face-Off. Amateur or pro, visit this website, fill in your facechart and upload it somewhere public (Flickr, Photobucket, Facebook, etc.), then submit your application.
Trish McEvoy, Catherine Malandrino, BryanBoy, and Hamish Bowles are judging the facecharts, and Friday, September 10th at 6 pm, the finalists will compete head-to-head, bringing their look to life on an actual model.
One winner will be selected and he or she will receive: lunch with Trish McEvoy at BG restaurant (!), a prize pack of Trish products and brushes (!!), and a THOUSAND dollars to spend at Bergdorf Goodman (!!!).
Deadline to enter is tomorrow, Tuesday, August 24th. Finalists will be announced on BG’s Facebook page. GOOD LUCK!
