Brands ranged from hair care, skin care, cosmetics and fragrance, while editors in attendance ranged from magazine and online editors as well as bloggers. Primp and Polish, a nail salon, treated editors to gel manicures and nail art throughout the day.

Leave it to our other favorite Delevingne to host a chic swimsuit collab launch at one of NYC's most buzzed-about new spots, The Happiest Hour.

Alexa Chung, Joan Smalls, and Harley Viera-Newton were just some of Poppy's BFFs in attendance, and when that group gets together, there's sure to be plenty of fun photos.

Shoulder bags have a bad reputation - your mother's worn out brown leather bag sits in the back of her closet, taunting your memories from the mid '90s.

We've been avoiding them for too long and this is the perfect season to bring back the shoulder bag.

The fantasy-filled event was held in honor of the Marchesa designers' new roles as St. Regis Connoisseurs, which involves designing couture wedding gowns exclusively for the iconic hotel chain. Complete with giant, lifelike butterflies hovering above guests, the candlelit dinner was an intimate affair with a decor inspired by the brand's dreamy dresses. Of course the night ended in style, with the presentation of a chic, flower-flanked wedding cake cut with a silver sword by the two guests of honor.
