Get the Look – Natural Beauty meets the Power Pout

So far for Spring Summer 15, there’s been a lot to love. Christopher Kane’s bare faced beauty and Givenchy’s mega wing are both ideal for the day, with the Balmain slick-back and Tom Ford’s sexpot bringing the glamour for the night. As it’s only June, I think it may be a little premature for beachy waves and sun-kissed skin; we’re kind of in […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Dark Red Lipstick

Rihanna stunned last week, top to toe in Altuzurra SS15 pink gingham, but it was her uber dark red lips that caught our attention. I’ve been raving about berry lips since I got my hands on Topshop’s Beguiled years ago and it seems that every winter without fail we fall for the mysterious hue. Perhaps […]

Get the Look – Grace Hartzel’s New School Glamour

I’ve been a huge Grace Hartzel fan since those first YSL ads; the fringe, the fur, the pout, she was the perfect poster child for Hedi Slimane‘s Rock and Roll revolution, at the helm of the huge Paris House that is Yves Saint Laurent. Keeping in line with the French vibe I’m currently mentally channeling, […]

Blush Loves… Politics in Fashion

  If you’ve been watching the SS15 Fashion Week shows you’ll have no doubt noticed a wind of change. Chanel had their models marching with femi placards for their final walk and at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Katie and Luella sent out T-shirts calling for a New World System. Just the other week, Cara Delevingne […]

Beauty Backstage – Chanel Couture AW15

Karl Lagerfeld has made us want trainers and backpacks and now he’s making us want Mohawks.

Campaign Trailing – Berry Lips are Back for Givenchy Fall 2014

Berry lips have been off the radar for a while now, but for some reason last weekend- out of nowhere, I whipped out my Chanel, Rouge Coco Shine No.92. It was a sultry saturday evening, my eyes were a Nars shade of copper bronze, I’d caught the sun and it just seemed fitting. After a […]

There are few products that make me instantly gush but one sweep of Chanel‘s Stylo Yeux eyeliners for Spring/Summer, has transformed my summer.    Blue eyes are set to be huge this season and there are two distinctive camps, lids vs. the waterline.  At Marc by Marc Jacobs, lids were swept in punchy cobalt and given a sweep […]

Whoever said couture is dead, is mental.

Immediately bewitched by Freeman’s corkscrew curls and alabaster skin, I’d often wondered where she had […]
