For most A-Listers in town for Fashion Week, Friday night became Fendi night thanks to a two-part event celebrating the opening of the label's new flagship store and the launch of the 3Baguette bag project. Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jourdan Dunn, Rachel Feinstein and Leandra Medine each designed their own 3Baguette, with proceeds benefiting the charity of their choice. The influential women were joined by Fendi creative directors Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi for an in-store cocktail party DJ'd by Erykah Badu, followed by an intimate dinner on the 83rd floor of One57. Besides the women of the hour, guests included Coco Rocha, Naomi Campbell, Hailee Steinfeld, and Anna Wintour. Click through for scenes from the exclusive event!
Seeing as Friday was one of the coldest days of the year so far, we weren't expecting much from the street style set. But as always, the true veterans of Fashion Week hardly let the weather interfere with their flawless looks.

On Thursday, NYCult kicked off NYFW with its semi-annual New York, New York party at Up&Down with ILoveMankonenn. If New York, New York is anything like what the rest of Fashion Week will be like, all we can say is we're in for a wild ride these next few nights. Mankonenn performed his hit song "Tuesday" and the even though the club was going up, it was on a Thursday this time. As expected, the night brought together a mix of some of the hottest players in the industry, including Drake who entered after just releasing a new surprise album, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and Rihanna. Both were spotted earlier celebrating Kanye West's collaboration with Adidas at Jay Z's 40/40 club, yet made their way down to Up&Down to end the night with DJ May Kwok. Though just to squash any Drake/Rihanna dating rumors you may be conjuring up, the two arrived separately, but we hear that Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio were spotted together at Up&Down last night as well. Justin Bieber was also spotted downstairs, hanging out with Drake and reportedly left with Hailey Baldwin, though the Biebs denies all rumors that the two are dating. Other notables at Up&Down included Joe Jonas, Shaun White, and Richard Chai, who were all spotted together hanging out while Mankonnen performed.
On Thursday, February 12th, Nolcha Fashion Week held their semi-annual Media Fashion Lounge event to showcase this season's hottest brands in apparel, accessories, menswear and beauty. The lounge was hosted at the new tri-level Brazilian Steakhouse, Fogo de Chao, located directly across from the MoMa. Dubbed the "hottest incubator for emerging design talent" by Forbes, Nolcha continued that trend by presenting independent fashion brands at the Media Fashion lounge this season including: jewelry by Eva Shaw, Syd and Pia, and Michelle Pajak-Reynolds, accessories by Adora and Sharon Itayi, womenswear by The Haute House Design Studio, and beauty by Solo Gel Nails and Indie Hair.
Last night at TriBeCa's Locanda Verde restaurant, Mytheresa.com collaborated with Style.com in hosting an exclusive dinner to celebrate the beginning of New York Fashion Week. In recent years, Mytheresa.com has become one of the leading online retailers for womenswear, and this is the first event they have hosted since its acquisition last fall by Neiman Marcus. The intimate dinner party saw everyone from DJs and designers to models and editors. Christian Siriano was snug between Leigh Lezark and Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, while Alexa Chung looked somewhat uncomfortable with her head in the crook of Justin O'Shea's (pretty darn buff) arm.

There are few things as sweet as hosting a relaxed night in for your love or friends. Tuna tartare tacos spread out on your living room table with pretty drinks. To make your life easier, here are five Valentine's Day cocktails you can shake up. (And the recipe for those tacos you'll love almost as much as you love your Valentine. Thanks to executive chef Cesar Gutierrez of Lexington Brass for that one!)
Last night in NYC, V Magazine celebrated the kick off of New York Fashion Week by hosting a blowout at Pacha NYC. The party also served as the setting for a new music video starring disco legends Nile Rodgers and Chic featuring a Versace jumpsuit-clad Karlie Kloss, who wasn't afraid to get down in front of the usually stoic fashion crowd. Everyone from Joe Jonas and Derek Blasberg to Cody Simpson and his girlfriend's sister, Bella Hadid, stopped by the neon-lit dance party to partake in the Inez and Vindoodh-approved festivities.

We've sourced the lands for the best scents man can buy, be it for Valentine's Day or any other day. Our criteria was critical - the scents must envelope a room, burn clean, and the scent must not be overpowering. All three requirements were met, with some being shattered completely (Fornasetti) with design and quality. Don't be afraid of the price tags, as these candles don't have to be every day scents. If you can't afford to buy a bundle every month, use them sparingly. Think of these candles as a luxury, not a necessity.
