Check the behind the scene video on the home page to give you a glimpse of the philosophy behind my line and donâ€™t forget to watch me on HSN on Sept 27th.

BEAUTY AND FAVE RESTAURANT
My fave restaurant in New York is Norwood. It is a private club/restaurant on 14th street. It is housed in a glorious brownstone that is so chic and private and the food is delicious. It is over 5 floors in a spectacular landmark townhouse. Beside the restaurant it has lounge bars, screening room, private dining room and to top it all a walled garden. Love It!!
BEAUTY AND THE WIGS
I have been loving these great wigs that I have been trying out the past 6 months and I am just loving them. It gives my hair a break and it can take me from drab to glam in an instant. They are light and easy to manage as you donâ€™t need a hairdresser to groom your locks daily. No self respecting fashionista leaves the house with a hair extension or a wig these days so why should you… So, you are dying to know where can you get these wigs from? Stay Tuned!
I am trying something new this time for the diary as i am very excited about the Fashion, Beauty, Accessories and all the other extras this fall. I am going to share with you my Fallâ€™s must-haves to make you look fabulous and chic.
If I have to singularly choose one designer it will definitely be Balenciaga.
Balenciaga on the Runway
After baring lots of skin all summer, itâ€™s nice to finally feel pulled together with his skinny gray pants and Goya-inspired draped velvet and taffeta tops.

The dresses were so modern â€“ scrolled peplums, slit skirts and armband sleeves â€“ fiercely genius!
SHOES & BOOTS
This fall must have boots for me is from Gucci as they have the new slouch and major hardwareâ€¦.

…they instantly give you that Studio 54 look and trust me I had many nights at Studio 54. The shoes itâ€™s a tie between Balenciagaâ€™s concorde/Jetson style silver killer!

My Iman Global Chic are the bomb! It is high fashion coupled with great price that canâ€™t beat. Try on for sizeâ€”Chic City Tote in Black Patent, Plum Patent, Amethyst and Caramelâ€”Icon Shopping Bag in Black Patent and Denim for your days off from work.
This is the time to do a sophisticated and an updated fall look. I love fallâ€™s colors and textures and usually I take my cue from the fashions. At IMAN Cosmetics we are bringing on full luxe chic with luminous skin using Second to None Luminous Foundation with Luxury Mineral Enriched Semi-Loose Powder. On the eyes try Luxury Eyeshadow Duo in Mysterious.
On cheeks: You can never go wrong with Afterglow for that flush of bronzer that we all need during the winter months.
On lips: line your lips with Perfect Lip Pencil in Espresso and finish it with Luxury Lipstick in Black Brandy.
Fall gives you so many options to be creative, daring and inject some fantasy. Gold and bold jewelry is cropping up everywhere and can be intensely flattering. Purple was the major color and necklaces have taken centre stage.
