Va-va-voom for Valentine's Day!

Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field is branching out from Carrie Bradshaw's stilettos and throwing a sexy soiree in the city: a Valentine's Ball at NYC's Capitale on February 11 (with music by DJ Cassidy).

"The seed of the event goes back maybe about 15 years, when I sent a Valentine's Day card to all my friends because I was too busy to do a Christmas card. They were so happy," Field tells UsMagazine.com. "I feel Valentine's Day is kind of the forgotten holiday, so I thought, 'Come on, let's celebrate love."

Field, whose birthday falls the day after the fete, also has three beauty tips for the ball and beyond:

1. "For the skin, Apivita is a collection of beauty products from Greece that are derived from bees and flowers and are completely organic, when you put it on your body, you can feel it immediately, your body just loves it."

2. "For makeup, there's a new company called Illamasqua; the concept behind this makeup is strong pigment, so it’s a beautiful makeup for accenting, like red lips for example."

3. "For the eyes, fake eyelashes. Get a bunch of them, put them in your makeup drawer and glue them on."
