The BlogHer '13 Fashion Show Style and Beauty Look Book

BlogHer Original Post

You asked for it, and here it is: The lookbook for the BlogHer '13 fashion show--including the clothes, the shoes, and more info about all the gorgeous model/bloggers who walked.

Thanks again to our exclusive beauty sponsor ULTA, who provided all the makeup and hair styling for our models, and to our friends at GiftBar, who worked with local Chicago retailers to clothe our models in fabulousness--click on the links to find the boutiques, where you can ask more questions about their clothes (cough, cape dress, cough).

And special thanks to Darlene Gillard Jones and her crew of amazing stylists, who worked with ULTA and GiftBar to make this show everything that it was.

And now, the women of the runway, in the order of their appearance!
