Fashion and Beauty Blogger (FABB) Conference: February 2011

Brandon Holley, editor in chief of Lucky magazine, hosted Lucky's inaugural Fashion and Beauty Blogger (FABB) Conference in New York on Tuesday, February 8th in the week leading up to New York Fashion Week and as part of Social Media Week. It was quite a day!

We at Lucky were honored to welcome 150 fashion and beauty bloggers to our day of education, conversations, networking, girl-crushes (hello Jenna Lyons!) and fun. All our attendees were, well, FABB. You can see their amazing street style here, captured by photographer Vanessa Jackman.

The panelists and demos were amazing—you can watch it all here, but the real stars were our blogger attendees. Revlon makeovers in between panels made them even more beautiful and photographer Tommy Agriodimas captured their looks with professional headshots (wind machine too, of course!). Check out some of their shots (right).

Did we mention the amazing Converse and Lands' End suites? And the gift bag? Just check out the video that FABB attendee Dawn Del Russo made about the awesomeness of our gift bags. Seriously.
