CEW held its annual Beauty of Giving luncheon Friday afternoon at the Hilton Midtown Manhattan.Cos Bar founder Lily Garfield and the Tweezerman brand served as the afternoon's honorees — each received a trophy for their commitment to "uniting beauty and benevolence."The luncheon, which typically attracts a crowd of several-hundred beauty industry professionals, is always CEW's last hurrah for the year, benefiting Cancer and Careers. The charitable organization supports current and former cancer patients as they navigate the workforce.Garfield herself is a cancer survivor — in 2007, she was diagnosed with peripheral T-cell lymphoma. She was treated successfully that year in a clinical trial at MD Anderson Center in Houston."Lily has since made her success and survivorship a catalyst for helping others," said Heidi Manheimer, chairwoman of the CEW Foundation. "She has invested her personal insight and her company's resources to making that happen."Reflecting on her time at MD Anderson, Garfield spoke to the crowd about how beauty helped her through the aggressive cancer treatments she was undergoing — coincidentally, at the same time Evelyn Lauder was being treated for breast cancer."I did lose my hair but always made sure I had eyeliner or lip gloss on — I just did the best I could to look good for what I was going through — and of course, Hermès scarves," she joked."It takes a village to get you through your ailments," Garfield said, switching tones. She noted that she aims to use Cos Bar's platform — the luxury beauty retailer opened its 20th store this month in Dallas — to raise awareness for Cancer and Careers.Jürgen Bosse, chief executive officer of Tweezerman, accepted the brand's award. Tweezerman donates a percentage of its annual profits to various charitable organizations, including Cancer and Careers. He recalled early in his tenure with the beauty tools company a meeting with a title that he joked made him quite nervous — "Our second bottom line." "I had no idea what it was — we don't have this in Germany," Bosse said. "Luckily, there was no reason to sweat — I soon found out that our second bottom line stands for our commitment to give back to the world with a percentage of our profits each and every year."The Esteé Lauder Cos. Inc. also received an honor at the luncheon — the first-ever Legacy award, for the company's commitment to its Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, which is in its 25th year.
Taking the final spot on the mens’ portion of New York Fashion Week calendar next month will be none other than @tomford. Though he’s shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His runway show will debut on February 6 at the Park Avenue Armory. #wwdfashion
London-based couture house @ralphandrusso has certainly been in the spotlight, having its dresses worn by @beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Meghan Markle in her engagement photos and more. For couture, Tamara Ralph focused on ornamentation — think: feathers with chain mail, jet embroidery and clusters of pearls and crystals.

Minnie Mouse celebrated her 90th birthday by getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. For her celebratory luncheon, @coach’s creative director @stuartvevers dressed her in a custom made prairie dress, complete with Vever’s take on the polka dot – black sequined versions – under a cropped motorcycle jacket. The designer also put his own mark on Minnie’s classic red shoes, infusing the color with sparkles and adding some Coach crystals. “We chose colors that were very Minnie and also represented quintessential Coach elements,” said Vevers. #wwdfashion #nationalpolkadotday (📷: George Chinsee)
@nickjonas is unveiling his first-ever apparel collection through a partnership with John Varvatos. The limited-edition capsule, which makes its debut in spring, also marks the first time the designer has collaborated with anyone on a line. “The process in working with Nick is amazing. It’s inspiring to be around someone who is not only connected with the trade that they do, but also with what’s happening in the environment around him, and how that connects to what we do with style,” said Varvatos.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
