(NYFW Edition) What’s In My Bag: Melissa Rubini, InStyle Style Director
Saint Laurent bag: "This is a new bag—a contemporary take on a classic. I think it’s the perfect size—not too heavy. Love it."
Fiji water: "Of course—very important to keep hydrated when you’re running around."
WWD: "Every morning I have to know everything that’s happening in the fashion industry before I begin my day."
Tom Ford sunglasses: "I love these—the lenses are perfect. They’re not too dark, so I can still the true colors of everything."
Smythson notebooks: "In the beginning of the season, it’s quite easy to remember everything that’s going on. But once we start going to London, Milan and Paris, there are so many shows and everything becomes a blur. To have all of our notes is very important."
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Mysterious Red: "I always have this with me. I always have red lipstick on, and after much research, this is the one I’ve found to be the best. It’s easy to apply and stays on for quite a while."
YSL concealer: "Halfway through, you start to get very tired and the dark circles start to show, so it’s important to have this on me to look fresh all the time."
Business cards: "We’re always meeting new people, new designers, new contributers and finding contacts for the magazine."
