As New York Fashion Week came to an end last Friday night, Project Runway finalist Korto Momolu debuted her Fall 2009 Collection at The Macdella Cooper Foundation (MCF) Fashion Week After Party Benefit Auction at Nikki Beach Midtown in New York City. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for the MCF Academy for Orphans and Abandoned Children, opening in Liberia in 2010. In the end, the foundation raised almost $50,000, all of which will go towards the construction of the academy, which will be built by acclaimed architect, Winka Dubbeldam of Archi-Tectonics. Korto, who is from Liberia, said she was honored to unveil her collection at an event that supports a cause that is so dear to her heart. Here, a few of my favorite pieces from her collection!

p.s. I’m more of a writer as opposed to a photographer, so please bear with my amateur photos!

Beyonce rocks Minx Nails in Golden Lightning

A-list celebs like Beyonce have already donned them on the Red Carpet, and now you can get in on the next biggest trend—Minx nails! The Minx manicure and pedicure line is a new innovation in nail fashion that features foil and glittery metallics, personalized graphic designs and even photo-quality designs. If you’ve always wanted to match your nails with that funky pattern on your dress hidden in the back of your closet, this nail line has got you covered. Not only is Minx stylish, but it may also be eco-conscious. Minx is a solid nail coating that is made of flexible film and requires no chemicals for its application or removal—making it a greener alternative to nail polish. Because it is a non-liquid, you won’t have to wait for your nails to dry or worry about chipped or smudged nails. You’ll be out of the nail salon in record time, ready to show off your fashionable finger assets this year.

Minx comes in four different product lines: Metallic, Standard Designs, Customs and Armour & Color. For more information and a list of nail salons and spas offering Minx nail fashion visit www.MinxNails.com.

Kirsten Dunst & Fashion Don’t Mix…

The Funeral Look

Kirsten Dunst at the London premiere of Spiderman 3. She should have left this ‘little black dress’ at home.

Pretty in Pink?

Kirsten Dunst at the Tokyo premiere of Spiderman 3. There’s nothing pretty about this pale pink ensemble that does nothing to flatter Dunst’s already pale complexion. This is just a mess, no other way to describe it.

Kirsten Tokyo
The Bow Dress Look

Kirsten Dunst at the France premiere of Spiderman 3. Out of all the dresses she wore, this one actually wasn’t too bad, except for the fact that it makes her look older than she is, which seems to be the case with all her garments. However, this rich burgundy looks good on her. The cinched bow flatters her petite waist. The slight touch of white on the bow contrasts well with the solid- colored dress. I’d lose the bows on her shoulders as well as the chunky heels. Flats would go much better with this piece. From the picture I can’t tell whether or not the fabric is velvet. I’m hoping it isn’t velvet because I’m not so sure velvet is a good look for the spring style-wise or common sense-wise with the warm weather and all.

Every Fashion Disaster Has A Silver Lining?

Kirsten Dunst at the Kaufman Astoria Studios during the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival for the Spiderman 3 premiere in New York City. Sorry Ms. Dunst, but there’s no silver lining here. This metallic silver outfit is HIDEOUS! I don’t know what look she was going for, but whatever it was, it didn’t work. At first glance, this piece looks like a space alien Halloween costume. I know it sounds crazy, but can’t you see it??
