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, […]

Get the look – Margot Tennenbaum

Gwyneth Paltrow is famous for many things: Sliding doors (classic), that oscars speech (hilarious), Goop (admirable but depressing) and the much mocked ‘conscious uncoupling’ statement (embarrassing). But what I know and will always love her for is Margot. I watched the Royal Tennenbaums on a flight to visit my family in Hong Kong, upon landing […]

Something for the weekend – Eyeko

The general laws of make-up decree that one should always decide between lips and eyes as the focus.  Although this is a rule I often like to break, there is no denying that a bare face and red lip, or dark eye and nude lip combo is more striking.    Eyeko, established in 1999 (vintage for the […]
