The sweetest smells of success circled around Lincoln Center earlier this week at the Fifi Awards, which are what insiders regard as the haute award event of the fragrance trade. Beautiful People included Mary J. Blige, Haile Berry, and Fergie, in a long lemonburst gown. Check out our top notes.
Carrie Keagan and French Sole
Our hearts belong to Carrie Keagan for independent shoe fashion thinking. Avoiding the ho-hum, Carrie married red-hot to animal print, and we’re loving it. French Sole really plays to Carrie’s red dress and wrist accessory, in the French Sole Leopard Hair Calf ballet flat.
Haile Berry and Pelle Moda Fact
Halle Berry, goddess-like in this dress, which redefines belt, was the talk of the event. She wisely chose a lightweight shoe to focus all eyes (and all eyes did focus) on the superb design of her dress. Pelle Moda would be a superb choice, in its light and very posh Pelle Moda Fact Sandal Black Suede.
Kelly Bensimon and Badgley Mischka Fierce
We had a fierce Badgley Mischka moment when Kelly Bensimon arrived in athletic shape and amazing blue dress with two-length sleeves. We chose the aptly titled Badgley Mischka Fierce Evening Sandal Silver Leather.
