Last night, a group of fabulous fashion savvy ladies and wives of NBA, NFL and MLB players, gathered together to celebrate the holidays in a stylish setting and enjoy the trunk show featuring couture creations of Edward Roth New York and Helen Yarmak, whose penthouse showroom served as the venue for the affair. The 2ndAnnual Soiree was also supporting a good cause: “Dress for Success." The hosts of the event, Masha Kirilenko, (married to Andrei Kirilenko of the Brooklyn Nets) and owner of Fashion IQ, Jaclyn Rosenberg, CEO of The Rosemark Group, and Keisha Sullivan (wife of NY Giant Jameel Mcclain), partnered with the charity that aids women in the midst of transition.
If you're not already in the holiday spirit, these upcoming events are sure to keep you feeling festive. The Winter Fete to benefit Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (Thursday, Dec 11th) and the NY Botanical Garden's Winter Wonderland Ball (Friday, December 12th) are right around the corner, and with a slew of other holiday bazaars, galas, and balls quickly approaching, the biggest question on our mind is: what to wear?

"Paying it forward" isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind in the cut-throat world of fashion, but for Erica Cerulo and Claire Mazur of e-commerce site Of A Kind, supporting the newcomers is only natural. As small business owners themselves, the two fashion-obsessed friends aim to promote up-and-coming designers by presenting their unique wares and connecting them on a more personal level with their customers. Rather than buying blindly from a huge brand, Of A Kind customers learn the story behind their favorite products and are guaranteed one of a kind (or 20 of a kind) pieces that are sure to get people talking. We caught up with Erica and Claire at their NYC offices to learn how Glade® scents spark their inspiration, the secret behind their style, and how the company started "over the course of 25 frantic emails in 12 hours."

Last night, The Cinema Society and Montblanc hosted a screening of Starz Digital's "The Color of Time" at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema. The collaborative film project stars James Franco, who also produced the film, and Mila Kunis. After the screening, guests attended an after party at Omar's, and were treated to special Qui Tequila cocktails named The Color of Time and Poetic Punch, in theme with the film. Notables included James Franco, Russell Simmons, Erin Fetherston and Gabe Saporta, Riccardo Tisci, and more. For an inside look at the red carpet and after party, be sure to check out our slideshow.
Meeting Beyonce? It's casual, at least according to Duchess Kate. Meeting J. Crew creative director and modern day style icon, Jenna Lyons? Now that's another story. Last night the royals stopped by NeueHouse for an event celebrating Britain's creative industries, and while that is the same location that a very sexy art slumber party just took place, the reception turned out to be quite a regal affair. Sure, Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Sir Patrick Stewart were also in attendance, but if anyone could woo the always-demure Kate, it's obviously that ultimate #GirlBoss. Click through for more photos from the event, including another of the Duchess totally fangirling.
