I got this dress when I hosted my party at Cynthia Rowley with Hallie several months ago. It was seriously love at first sight. It is a bit risque and unique, but still the ultimate little black dress. I was inspired to do this shoot on the roof of my building because I am covering the first fashion show at the new World Trade Center this Wednesday. In watching the promo for the show, I was obviously wow-ed by the views. The show is going to be on the 63rd floor at sunset, and it is supposed to reflect the global significance of the building and empower global unity. I cannot wait to see the designs! The event will feature everything from haute couture to ready-to-wear, and you know I will have all the behind-the-scenes details on Instagram (@thestylephile) and on Joonbug the next day!
I decided to shoot something inspired by this special writing assignment and shot at sunset on the rooftop of a building on the Upper East Side. Something about the skyline of this city always takes my breath away! I kept the accessories simple, modern and a little edgy because that is how the architecture feels to me from this view. But make no mistake, NYC can be historic, warm and inviting as well! I just feel very blessed to live in such a dynamic place that inspires me to do what I love every day!
