Elizabeth Giardina is certainly a busy woman. In addition to working as the design director for 10 Crosby Derek Lam, she’s also been training to run in Sunday’s ING NYC Marathon, taking place across all five of New York City’s boroughs. Taking on the marathon is no easy task — the first wave is scheduled to start at 9:40 AM, and will run all day as participants make their way through Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan. We caught up with Giardina to find out about the essentials she needs to make it across the finish line, and the fitness items she’ll be taking with her to the race. Head over to our Pinterest to check out all of Elizabeth’s marathon must-haves!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Fashion Week! In preparation for the industry’s busiest time of year, Pinterest has created a hub to showcase Fashion-Week-focused style boards. InStyle, along with over 100 top designers (like Michael Kors) and style brands, has teamed up with the platform to bring you a behind-the-scenes look into New York Fashion Week, including beauty tutorials and street style inspiration, exclusive to #NYFW. But Pinterest isn’t limiting itself to just New York. The hub is making room for soon-to-be-launched boards to highlight shows in London, Milan, and Paris.
Follow along as we pin our way through every event, after-party, and embellished mani, and go all “fashion editor” on your own boards by repinning the looks you love most. We got a head start with our faves from last season—so you can start today!
