Birds Of Paradise Flock Together: Backstage At Prabal Gurung Fall 2012

This season definitely feels all about eyes to me, And so far three days into New York fashion week, blues and greens are the colors of choice. Backstage, it was fascinating to see how Prabal's fall '12 collection came together, with metallic, panelled dresses, scarab jewelry, and shimmering eye makeup inspired by beetle wings, all coming together in gorgeous unison. Ahhhh I just love it!!

At the Gurung show they had a metamorphosis “from hell to heaven” theme. Tilbury designed an “Avatar-ish” eye, painting the lids, right up to the eyebrow, with creamy, geometric slashes of teal, M.A.C. Paint Pot in Delft and electric blue M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Freshwater, winging out the inner corners of the bottom lash line with rich aqua pencil, M.A.C. Technakohl Liner in Smooth Blue. Mirroring the iridescent blue/green fabrics used in the collection on the sleeves of a coat, for example, she also drew inspiration from the hypnotic mix of colours found on an exotic bird’s feather and a beetle’s shell.

“It reminds me of a butterfly,” remarked model Erjona Ala, who was standing by, awaiting a touch-up.

Fashion Trend: Stacking Jewellery

Whether it’s bands of silver and gold, woven strips, rhinestones, leather and beads, or studs - piling on an assortment of texture and sparkle is a definite trendsetting look you really can’t get wrong.

It's all about creativity, mixing'n'matching and using what you have! Old bracelets, costume, novelty and a variety of thick and thin are the key to a fabulously stacked arm - which means you can draw on whatever you have in your jewellery box and make it current!

I am obsessed with this trend at the moment so read more to see some amazing combo's

Side Part: How To Wear It Now...

The centre might be where hair sits if you want to rock a 60s or 70s vibe in 2012.. but for those looking for a part that offers up more of a fashion-forward vibe then your 2012 hairstyle is all about the side part!

Wear it left, right, up, down, wet, dry, when you’re in a hurry or taking your time… it doesn't matter. What matters is that in 2012, if you’ve got the hair to suit the styles, you move your hair part to the side.

What hairstyles does the side part work with for 2012? Read more!

Inside peek into Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment

And it all started on 31 Rue Cambon in Paris... Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s Paris apartment.

For the lady, it wasn’t just about the little black dress, the perfume or the trademark pearls, but it was in the lifestyle. The curtains in the lounge, the glassware on the dining table and the towels on the bathroom rack. 
Chanel soon became less about the tweed suit hanging in the closet and more about living the life: the Chanel life...

Versace for H&M Cruise 2012: Summer Must Haves!

Versace’s Cruise collection for H&M has colourful dresses that repeat with rows of fruit and butterflies like a hundred slot machine jackpots. The price point is, naturally, far from that of true Versace.. But those fruit machine jackpots can have all the glamour of old Hollywood, instead of new Vegas, if the styling is right.

And right it is, in this campaign of Abbey Lee Kershaw; turned bombshell blonde in classic side parted waves and red lips. Basking poolside, daytime and nighttime, Abbey Lee and her male companion are living a luxury resort lifestyle. Photographed as glimpses through the trees, it’s a lifestyle the viewer..  All at once, this campaign represents an inaccessible lifestyle that feels far away from its intended audience... but does so with product that is accessible.

Photo's Of The Week!

As promised 5 weeks ago... here are the pictures for the Wani Spring/Summer photoshoot. The makeup was bold, artistic and very daring! It definitely demands attention and the results were just amazing! The designer had some inspiration pictures that I took from and changed colours, shapes and tweaked it considerably to make it unique and fresh! The colours were very earthy and warm toned. Brows were kept very natural & soft and were barely filled in. 2012 trends of strong blush, bold orange lips & strong mod eye can be seen considerably.

New Years Resolution: Lorna Jane

So to start off the new year and my quest to lose the 10kgs I have slowly put on over the past 14 months.. I had to kick start my motivation by getting some sexy gear to work out in! My hubby shouted me to a treat and I had no budget to stick to! It was only afterwards that he realised just how expensive Lorna Jane pieces can be! So let me share with you the gorgeous items I picked up.. I lovvve watermelon and blue is a complementing colour, so I decided to get multiple pieces that I could change up and wear with each other. I picked up two bottoms, 1 pair of gorgeous blue shorts and a pair of black with matching blue trim long compression tights. I then bought 4 singlets that I could wear with both bottoms, 1 long sleeve grey hoodie and a watermelon crop top and cap. All the items except for the cap are fade and shrink resistant!

New Years Eve Party Makeup

My Gorgeous Client wanted to have a Leopardish eye for New Years! Nothing too bold or editorial, and more wearable. I had to really work the foundation as she had severe acne and acne scars and holes. Her skin looked amazing afterwards and she looked sexy! Her dress was more of a green based animal print so I decided to pop some green into the spots and steered away from the traditional fiery Orange-copper that I would normally use..
