During NYFW Fall 2012, J.Mendel gave us a big show. Front row seats were full of celebrity guests. Fashionable noted, two sunglass clad twins. Also spotted front row was fashion commentator and stylist, Mary Alice Stephenson. I got a chance to speak with fashion’s globe-trotting Queen backstage at J.Mendel.
For this year’s Academy Awards red carpet breakdown, Wendy Williams called on Stephenson. She has also dressed major celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, and she is a major contributor to Harper’s Bazzaar, so I knew I was in good hands talking about the inspiration for the J.Mendel show. Minus her credentials, I may have been a little taken by all her compliments to my outfit.
Kristen Wigg won Oscar gold in J.Mendel this year. J.Mendel is known for amazing furs and modern evening wear, which did not disappoint. I picked a few pieces to highlight Fall 2012.
