Fashionista alert: Joseph Gualtiere, founder and editor of the new online magazine UpTempo, has posted some fun behind-the-scenes pics from his photo shoot with our own Nadine Sierra on Facebook.
How about a sneak peak?

Nadine, who will sing Tytania in our upcoming production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, spent last Thursday morning frolicking around the Shubert in about $30,000 worth of couture, thanks to Joseph’s amazing power to wrangle the most stunning gowns and stilettos from Saks 5th Avenue. And as a witness to every look – from the Emporio Armani jacket to the little black Fendi… the flowy Marc Jacobs to the show-stopping Alexander McQueen floral gown – this gorgeous young diva can’t make a bad picture. (And we say diva with nothing but love, Nadine – because you were a dream… gracious, creative, energetic, a real pro… and early even!)

UpTempo, which will focus on fashion and the performing arts, launches on April 21 with Nadine on the cover and a soiree at the Liberty, part of the hotel’s Fashionably Late series. Gowns from the recent BLO hit Agrippina will be featured, along with frocks from BSO’s popular Project Beethoven competition. The party, where Joseph promises dancers, singers, a red carpet, surprise guests and even an aerialist swinging above our heads (watch out!), kicks off at 8 p.m. and will go til’ last round. (The runway show starts at 10 p.m.). You know we’ll be in the front row!
