Orange Is the New Black is one of the hottest new TV shows in recent memory, which is why OKMagazine.com is so excited to have star Jackie Cruz as our special correspondent from New York Fashion Week! She’s exclusively sharing her diary with OKMagazine.com, so stay tuned for every show, party, and outfit.
Jackie Cruz is hanging in there toward the end of New York Fashion Week! “Day 7 was set more for dressing simple. I went with a natural look on the make up to complement Elie Tahari’s beautiful dress for his NYFW presentation. I was very excited to have been invited.”
“When I arrived it was amazing to meet Elie Tahari and view his new collection, which is filled with detailed leather trims and prints,” says Jackie. The presentation totally fit her style. “I’m a leather gal, so I was fascinated by the blend with warm colors. And I actually added a touch of leather to my Elie Tahari outfit by wearing my mom 1970s vintage leather jacket with some gold tone on my feet to bring out the edgy Jackie.” Gorg!
Of course, Jackie finds friends everywhere. “While viewing the collection I noticed one of my close girlfriends, Gabriel Lopez, was one of the still models,” says Jackie. “We haven’t had a chance to catch up since NYFW started, so I had no idea she would be modeling for the brand. I was so happy to see her do her thing.” As for the party, Jackie is not a drinker, but she was obsessed with Alibi American Whiskey’s delicious Thunderstorm cocktail and Wodka Vodka’s Taharitini.
“Throughout the event I met amazing people like the fashion director of InStyle magazine, Cindy Weber,” says Jackie. “InStyle has been a fashion bible for me since I was young and to have met her was amazing. But one of the best highlights was to have Joan Rivers share that she has watched Orange Is The New Black.” Check out a pic of Jackie with Joan above!
