Audrey Kitching's Blog
As you may or may not know, I'll be at New York Fashion Week this week and bringing you the latest updates and trends as the week goes on. SPIN put on a kick off party to celebrate the festivities. Azealia Banks performed and many came out to all nighter event. Take a look at my favorite looks of the night.
Stay tuned for more updates :)
The VMAs are tomorrow so Buzznet asked me a few questions based around that! Check it out and let me know who YOU want to win!
What is your favorite part of the VMAs? (performances, surprises, collaborations, fashion etc)?
I think for me its the ad-libbing and fashion! I love when stars push the buttons and envelopes with things they weren't suppose to say, and who doesn't love to see what everyone wore!
Who has your vote for Best New Artist?
Carley Rae Jepsen: “Call Me Maybe”
Frank Ocean: “Swim Good”
fun. f/ Janelle Monae “We Are Young”
One Direction: “What Makes You Beautiful”
The Wanted: “So Glad You Came
Would I be a total jerk if I wanted to vote for none of these?
Who do you think should win for Video Of The Year?
Drake f/ Rihanna: “Take Care”
Gotye f/Kimbra: “Somebody That I Used To Know”
Katy Perry: “Wide Awake:
M.I.A: “Bad Girls”
Hard to say, Gotye f/Kimbra is the best song here but MIA and Katy Perry's videos are more eye catching and I guess thats what this is about. Lets go with Katy!
If you were to attend the VMAs this year what would you wear?
I actually have been to almost every award show BUT the VMAS.. probably something futuristic and sparkly with a 20s glam style hair/ makeup!
Who would you take as your dream date to the VMAs?
Can I take Peeta from The Hunger Games if he was real, Ryan Gosling, Matthew Gray Gubler and RPATZ for fun.
A favorite memory from a past VMA show?
I think Lady Gaga being super crazy and hosting as her alter ego man side was pretty hard to top!
Can I just say im so exicited for Perks Of Being A Wallflower to come out! Emma Is the perfect actress for the film. That was my favorite book as a teenager, if you haven't read it yet hurry up and do it before film comes out!
WHICH COVER DO YOU LIKE BEST? Im feeling the UK one more myself!

Im sitting in a hotel in CA in my underwear expected to be dressed and picked up by a car service in less then an hour. I read about the blue moon and astrology while in the bath tub last night and ordered room service in bed. This is the first time I have had a few minutes to myself in weeks. Im on power over drive in the strangest way. So many projects and work stuff going on it's hard to keep my head straight. Im not complaining by any means, just trying to stay grounded in the crazyness! I fly home on a red eye Monday night and have 24 hours to unpack, repack, get accupuncture, run errands and get to Fashion Week in NYC. Im going to go drink lemon water in the shower, listen to Robyn, and attempt to be photo resntable in 30 minutes! I will touch base in NYC next week.
words of wisdom. Think evolve or evaporate, stay stuck and end up being fuqed, don’t bother trying to impress/woo/negotiate with dinosaurs and clueless
The first look at Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers starring James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens has finally arrived! As morbid as it may sound Harmony Korines movies were a huge part of my teen life. I probably shouldn't have been watching them or even as slighly obsessed as I was being the dark and disterbing nature most of his films have.
His new one Spring Breakers is cast with a Disney crew, how taboo!
ANYONE ELSE SUPER STOKED ON THIS?
Weave Tricks: DIY Side Braid with Audrey Kitching
by Stella Rose Saint Clair
For years we have been obsessing over model and fashion maven Audrey Kitching’s wavy pink locks. A near guru of extensions, we’ve seen Audrey rock every weave-worthy hairstyle imaginable all with cotton candy sweetness, and a touch of bohemian flair. Hair extensions may seem fussy, but Audrey wears her’s loose, flowing, and easygoing, making good weave—pink or not—look like a piece of cake! Below Audrey shares the tricks behind her self described “Joan of Arc meets Barbie” messy side braid hairstyle.Start With the Right Cut
The trick to this style is a layered cut. I ask my hairdresser to layer my front extensions to give them a natural look, and then blend up the back with more subtle layering. That way, when I pull my braid to one side I’ll get shorter layers falling around my face giving it that messy look.Use the Right Tools
I use Big Sexy Hair Powder Play on my roots. It builds volume, and gives my hair a coarser texture to match the extensions. A beach spray comes in handy to use on the actual extensions. It breaks the hair up a little bit and makes it look like you’ve slept on it.Clip it in
To start, I normally use four 18-inch long two-inch wide clip-in extensions. I place two in back, and one on either side. If your hair is thicker, you may need to up it to two on either side to match the density.Braid Away
I pull my hair down to one side and do a typical braid, but I’ll braid it really tight and fasten it with a hair band. Then I pull the loose pieces at the end apart to push the hairband up and loosen the braid. I pull out little layered pieces all down the braid to make it look undone, and then pull the hair band back down, tightening it again.Tie it Off
I use braiding rubber bands that you can find at beauty stores. I like that they come in clear, as well as neon colors. After I finish my braid I’ll wrap a tiny piece of the extension around the band and tuck it in to hide it.
I had a really fun opportunity to check out and shop with the Princess Vera Wang collection at Kohls! This of course was something I loved because I am a huge fashion lover, I love getting to put together new outfits and add to my wardrobe! Check out my outfit I put together and if you like it, you can shop the line at your local Kohls or check it out online! If you go to the website, there is a virtual “closet” where users, like YOU, can make their own Princess Vera outfit and share it. You can create and save your look and win a $500 Kohl’s gift card.
This rainbow gold dagger necklace and oversized ballerina sweater are my favorite items.
