As we mentioned earlier this year, vibrant pastels are definitely in for spring and summer! We know that Easter is over… these pastels are high fashion hues that will easily transform your look! Pastels are especially great for us Feather Girls because we love all things romantic… and this Vogue spread with Kate Moss shows us how it’s done! She channels Marie Antoinette for this photo shoot in the The Ritz Hotel in Paris.

To create a romantic look with feathers try our ostrich boas or our feather garments and accessories!

The hotly anticipated Broadway Bares will pay tribute to our favorite fairy tales as only the modern-day burlesque show could when this year’s edition of the immensely popular event becomes Broadway Bares XXII: Happy Endings.

Tickets are on sale now for the return of Broadway’s most anxiously awaited annual event, which combines the naughtiness of burlesque and the razzle-dazzle of Broadway.

In this 22nd edition of Broadway Bares, more than 200 of New York’s sexiest and most delectable dancers will take you to a land where rubbing a magic lamp reveals more than just a genie. These storybook happy endings would make the seven dwarfs whistle before and after they work.

Special guests, who will be sure to awaken even the sleepiest beauty, will be announced at a later date.

Get tickets now or call 212.840.0771, ext. 268. Prices range from $60-$750. VIP tickets include open bar and special viewing areas. Also available is the exclusive “Stripper Spectacular” package, which includes a reserved table seat at either show, admission to a private cocktail party, a backstage tour and more.

Broadway Bares was created by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell, who also serves as executive producer, and is produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, led by Producing Director Michael Graziano. This year’s edition is directed by Lee Wilkins.

Last year’s Broadway Bares XXI: Masterpiece delivered as none others have in the past, raising $1,103,072, the highest total of any edition of Bares. The first Broadway Bares featured seven dancers stripping on a bar and raised more than $8,000. To date, the 21 editions of Broadway Bares have raised more than $8.6 million for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The presenting sponsor of Broadway Bares 22 is M•A•C VIVA Glam, with generous support from BC/EFA corporate partner United Airlines.

 

 

Us feather girls are always looking for innovative ways to incorporate feathers into our style, so when we spotted this new Premier Feathers watch collection by Harry Winston we were very excited to see a company doing something new!

Harry Winston is a luxury jewelry company that originated in New York City in the 1930s. They are famous for their work with diamonds and rare stones , and for their ability to make celebrities shine on the red carpet. They have created many bird inspired pieces, but the items that we love right now are their feather watches. They have meticulously placed pheasant and peacock feathers on the faces of these watches to combine nature with luxury to create truly one-of-a-kind timepiece. The watches above incorporate Peacock Plumage, while the ones below are Silver Pheasant feathers.
