In my opinion, the best part about living in a city is the people-watching. And as a fashion editor, I'm always on the lookout for what people are wearing. Our recent NYFW dinner, which celebrated Marie Claire's new editor in chief, Nikki Ogunnaike, had no shortage of fall outfit inspo. The event was held on the rooftop at Nine Orchard, and the attendees came dressed to impress. Stylish guests included actresses Sheryl Lee Ralph and Bailey Bass, J.Crew women's designer Olympia Gayot, Who What Wear Editor in Chief Kat Collings, and Emmy-nominated Padma Lakshmi.
Tailored separates, sleek leather accessories, and a bold red lip are just some of the fashion and beauty looks from the event that I will be implementing this season. Keep scrolling to shop the 30 products on my wish list, all of which are inspired by the chic dinner party guests.
