OMG that girl and that dress!

October 9th, 2008

I was so happy to see one of my girl crushes, Mila Kunis (I religiously watched That 70s Show solely because of her), in Ocean Drive Magazine. She looks absolutely stunning beyond words in this Bill Blass dress. The ruffles are to die! And I always envied her big doll-like eyes. Mila rocks the strong eyebrows + smoky eyes + nude lips look fabulously.

6 looks of Smokey Eye

September 22nd, 2008

It seems that at the turn of the fall, things always get dramatic in terms of makeup and accessories. I find this spread from the October issue of FASHION magazine absolutely gorgeous and giving me new ideas about how to wear the always classic smokey eye in different ways. “High-impact necklaces and six version of the smokey eye are commanding the conversation. Outbursts in gold, purple, taupe, grey, burgundy and black spoke out loud and clear on models’ eyelids at the Fall 2008 runway shows.” Aren’t the necklaces CRAZY? They will be the inspiration when I go hunting for crazy necklaces this fall.

WEAR WITH a barely-there sheer lipstick or lipgloss and a natural, cheekbone-enhancing blush. NEED TO KNOW that any shade of burgundy works, from grape and rouge to purple and fuchsia.

WEAR WITH petal-pink lips and a flush of pink on the apples of the cheeks. NEED TO KNOW the season’s smouldering purple eye can be worn two ways: sparkling brilliant or sweetly demure.

WEAR WITH pale-pink lipstick and a touch of dusty-rose blush. NEED TO KNOW that taupe is versatile, ranging from plum-grey to earth-brown hues. Regardless of shade, this look is best worn across the entire eye — from lashline to brow.

WEAR WITH a deep berry-stained lip and a light stroke of sun swept blush on cheekbones. NEED TO KNOW this canary-gold version of the smoky eye can be as monochromatic or three-dimensional as your eyeshadow palette inspires.

WEAR WITH neutral, sheer, slightly shiny lips and a bare face. NEED TO KNOW this shiny, wet-look, blacked-out eye is best applied with a heavy hand for a thick, glossy finish.

WEAR WITH beige-toned or rose lipstick. NEED TO KNOW that ultimate grey smoky eye, as painted by Peter Philips for Chanel’s couture show, can be worn sheer and light for day or with added layers of eyeshadow for night. “The colour was like a chameleon: Sometimes it looked blue, sometimes more grey, even black,” says Philips.

Posh on the cover of Allure

August 11th, 2008

(Victoria Beckham on the latest issue of Allure)

This is possibly the best I’ve seen Posh on any magazines. The playful loose hair and soft makeup give her a much more gentle look than her usual sharp image. Way to go, Victoria!

“To create Victoria’s natural look, makeup artist Scott Andrew brushed metallic beige shadow on her eyelids, lined her eyes with black pencil, applied a creamy rosy blush on the apples of her cheeks, and blended a beige lipstick with a pink lip stain to make her lip color. “I just make the best out of what I have. I’m not out-of-the-ordinary-looking at all. I’m incredibly ordinary,” says Beckham.”

Glamour editors copy each other’s style and have fun!

July 10th, 2008

Enzo Angiolini - Tells (White Leather) - Footwear I thoroughly enjoy reading Glamour blogs everyday, especially its Slaves to Fashion written by its senior style writer Jenny Feldman. You gotta envy the editors ’cause they just have so much in the office. The other day Jenny was asking everybody if they were copy cats. She saw her coworker wearing this adorable pair of Enzo Angiolini White Leather Gladiator Sandals ($93) and she wanted to copy it. I gotta admit as far as gladiator sandals go, these are pretty decent. She picked a good color, the white is most flattering.

So Jenny immediately ordered a pair on Zappos.com and wore them to the office.

THEN she showed her mom the shoes and her mom immediately ordered the same pair on Zappos.com too!!

It isn’t so much fun to watch this chain reaction? And even more so, I totally envy Jenny that she and her coworkers can discuss fashion at work all day. Well duh me….that’s part of her job working at a fashion magazine. I wish my coworkers and I would be like this, but our non-fashion related job is a lot duller. The closest we’ve come is when we went to the mall at lunch time and bought the same bag, but in different colors.

Beautiful Charlize

May 16th, 2008

I’m so taken by these breathtakingly beautiful photos of Charlize Theron in the June issue W magazine. She’s flawless, whatever she wears looks stunning on her. Love the plum Donna Karan New York’s silk gown. Also, check out her article.

She’s so fair

April 3rd, 2008

My favorite NYC socialite girl, and Dior beauty ambassador, Tinsley Mortimer, is on the cover of Page Six Magazine. Dior Beauty is launching their Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Tinsley Pink, a color created by Tinsley, and a portion of the product’s sales will be donated to her charity of choice, Operation Smile. I can’t wait to try the lip gloss. I find her so fascinating.
