Fashion, art, and culture intersected Monday, October 21, at the 4th-annual Project Art charity event in a lofty factory space in New York’s SoHo. Organized by Project Paz, a volunteer-based nonprofit focused on promoting peace in Juarez, Mexico, the designer- and editor-studded silent auction and cocktail party was a sight to see (and be seen).

New York Fashion Week has seen its fair share of new fashion trends, and right along with them are the fresh beauty looks. So what can we expect to stock our makeup bags with this fall? Between the barely-there makeup at BCBGMAXAZRIA; blue and purple eyeshadow at Jason Wu; nude manicures at La Perla and DANNIJO; and graphic nail art at Rebecca MinkoffNicholas K, and Degen (just to name a few) – it’s safe to say that bold and understated will live together in harmony.

And the hair? Put those curling irons away, because straight blunt cuts and messy, undone styles – from the grunge look at BCBGMAXAZRIA to roughed up ponytails at Richard Chai and Tadashi Shoji – are back.
