Festival Glamour Inspiration: Elie Saab SS18

I’m a huge fan of all things Elie Saab. Whilst girly isn’t usually my style, nothing makes me swoon like one of his dresses. Glitzy, glam and impressively modern, he is the indisputable red carpet king. With Coachella underway and festival season on the horizon, I’ve been contemplating on how to approach this annual dressing […]

2017: An Ode to Optimism

After a rocky 2016, it seems we are all committed to making 2017 a year of hope, togetherness and possibility. If 2016 was the apocalypse, then 2017 is the year we dust ourselves off, walk through the rubble and saunter off into the sunset. For SS17 it was surely no surprise then, that designers looked to […]

Blush Tests: Glitter @ Burberry AW16

I’ll be honest: working with glitter fills me with dread. The shimmery forays of 11-year-old me come rushing back to mind whenever I see a twinkling eyeliner or lip. The sparkle reminds me too much of Claire’s Accessories, candy necklaces and scented gel pens for me to take it seriously. But when I saw Edie […]

London Fashion Week seems to have finished as quickly as it started and whilst there was lots of front row action going on: like Marc Jacobs flying in to see his protegé A.V Robertson and new kids on the scene Anais Gallagher and Lottie Moss carrying on what their fam started; this season backstage seemed to […]

Get the Look – Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma Show #NYFW Beauty

A celebration of diversity and the beauty of individuality, Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma show was a welcome surprise. Rih’s Fenty show of super soft oversized hoodies and racy lace-up cut-outs were perfectly paired with pared back skin, swept back hair doused in white powder and Rihanna’s signature black lip; the ultimate antidote to ghostly white lashes.  Set […]

The Diary

So this week has been a work week. Lots of press days but lots of fun. The week started with the launch of the Trilogy Christmas collection, which was a very chic take on Christmas as they opted for painterly prints as opposed to kitsch Xmas merch, meaning that you can stock up and hand […]

Blush Loves… Politics in Fashion

Just the other week, Cara Delevingne […]

Milan Fashion Week brings back Mascara – Backstage Beauty #MFW

Mascara is back!  Whether it was clumped at Prada or enhanced by extensions at Versace and Dolce & Gabbana.
