If you ever wanted to be one of the cool kids, then Saturday night at The Highline Room at The Standard Hotel in NYC was your check-in point. To the tunes of DJ Chelsea Leyland and notable guest, rapper Vinny Cha$e, accessory designer Alejandro Ingelmo debuted his Fall/Winter 2013 collection to a full room - so full that Latina couldn't even get a chance to speak to the Cuban-American!

Tracy Reese Fall 2013 Runway
Lots of New York City Edge at Tracy Reese
By Yanira Garza | 02/11/2013 - 23:31

Always the hit maker, Tracy Reese, knocked it out of the tents again this season. With so many people anxiously waiting for the show to start, seats were dwindling and mine was taken. As I was almost struck down by sadness, the PR team moved this Latina to the front row seconds before the show started.

The next few minutes were so intense that I found myself picking up my jaw look after look. While a lot of other designers went the moody route, Tracy Reese sent bold, raw sophistication down the runway.

Zac Posen Fall 2013 Runway Hair Look
All Things Worthy with John Frieda at Zac Posen
By Yanira Garza | 02/11/2013 - 23:14

Zac Posen is a man of vision, so it was interesting to hear that he didn't quite see the vision of John Frieda Global Creative Consultant, Luigi Murenu, when he described his plans to crimp the hair for Posen's Fall 2013 runway collection. Assured by Luigi of this look, it ended up being one of the best this season, easily.

Custo Barcelona Fall 2013 runway
Custo Barcelona: The New Cult Classic
By Yanira Garza | 02/11/2013 - 21:42

This season, Custo Barcelona's collection was inspired by Beauty & The Beast. Though not the Disney rendition, the famed Spanish designer's focus was sexy and full of fluidity, aka the beauty. Yet, it also had a hardness of sorts, the beast. We saw a collection full of textures, short dresses and winter coats with intricate sleeve details, sporty sweatshirts with feminine design details that were all complimented with a hair look created by Duffy for Oribe.

Nicole Miller Fall 2013
Mood Swings at Nicole Miller Fall 2013
By Yanira Garza | 02/10/2013 - 10:19

Looks like the tomboy grew up to be a beautiful, sexy woman who still rocks tomboy style. Nicole Miller's dark and sensuous collection looked very much inspired by menswear but focused on fitting the feminine form and balancing it out with a few sexier styles.

While Miller's Fall 2013 collection lacked much color, an array of prints and a few sparks of burnt orange were spotted down the runway - just enough to give it a bit of life. Our favorite touch, of course, would be the fedoras...because really, who doesn't love a good fedora?

Ruffian Fall 2013 Runway
James Kaliardos for Ruffian Fall 2013
By Yanira Garza | 02/10/2013 - 01:18

A little bit Victorian, a little bit Scottish, and a whole lot of red eyeshadow at Ruffian for Fall 2013.

MAC makeup artist James Kaliardos, who designed the look, focused on a very monochromatic look by using Loves Lure (a new product out this Spring) on both the lids as well as the cheek to give an intense flush. Staining the lip in a cranberry color, Kaliardos was able to pull together the look.

While there may be a lot going on, it pulled together beautifully on the runway and complimented the collection overall.

By Yanira Garza | 02/10/2013 - 00:30

The hair at Jill Stuart Fall 2013 was chic, yet simple and fresh, conceptualized by the legendary Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris.

Gilbert, one of the world's most sought after hairstylists, was very easy going and carefree, much like the look as she spoke with Latina on how to recreate this yourself and her three must have products.
