SNEEK PEEK AT CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS S/S 11 COLLECTION

How's everyone doing? I finish working as a make-up artist at Sleek studio next week, before I focus on my new gig with FAB magazine and then there's the tv series in which I'm a crew member, I am strictly make up and wardrobe ofcourse! To put it simply.... THE HOURS ARE CRAZY! From one job to the other, but I really appreciate the opportunity. A couple of days ago, I promised to post a peek at Louboutin's new collection, so enjoy.....













I can honestly say, I can wear every single pair of shoes in this collection, and I don't often get to say that with some other designers. Guess I'm a die hard Christian Louboutin fan.

Some originality perhaps?...

Today has been on of those very very loooong days, so excuse me.. I'm a bit irritable and what better way to express distaste than to point out Ciara's ummm.... do i say "Swagger jacking" skills from Kim Kardashian's wardrobe choices. I'm gonna try to go easy on this one because I am an actual fan of Ciara. I completely understand cases of a "Who wore it better" debate, but this has gone on a tad bit too far... At first it was cute CiCi, but now it truly has run its course. A little originality perhaps?

REBECCA MOSES.

I will always remember the very first thing that came to my head when I came across Rebecca Moses' newest campaign ADs... SHEER AMAZEMENT. Believe me, I pay excrutiantingly close attention to fashion ads and this season and the last, there have been a number of them that have caught my eye. Like Madonna's ever evolving D&G AD, Scarlet Johansen for Moet champagne in which she channels Marylin Momroe, in the D&G make up range AD she channels Marylin Monroe YET AGAIN but still exquisitely beautiful, Eva Longoria for L'oreal make up in which the smokey eye is done with a twist of pale colour in the middle of her eyelids,  Giselle for Roberto Cavalli's 40th anniversary in which I was proved wrong once again that the world's richest supermodel could look more beautiful, and those autumny Salvatore Feragamo ADs with the impossibly slender model with barely there make up running bare feet in the wood... I could go on.
My point is nothing has caught my eye quite like these Rebecca Moses ADs, have a look for yourself...









The pictures are funny and silly, the concept is incredibly artistic! The model plays the role of a brunette barbie who's caught up in a mystical world of shadows. Yet attention is not drawn away from the clothes and shoes, you begin to wonder if owning a Rebecca Moses item can bring so much fun to average life and if it can provide an escape just like the ADs show. I am beyond impressed, not only are Rebecca's magazine ADs phenomenal, her pop up store displays are just as incredible and fun! Gonna be sharing recent pics of her pop up stores. ITS SOOOOOOO FUN!
P.s- I'm sorry its taken me eternity to put up a new post, been so busy working with sleek make up as a make up artist for their new seminar catalogue. People often ASK ME- "Are you a make up artist of a wardrobe stylist"? I say BOTH!! I'm incredibly passionate about the two, and have played both roles on many jobs before. I refuse to stick to just one, I am breaking the rules here.

SHOES AND SOCKS....

Why of course yes, I am one of those people who look through fashion mags and become envious of the models who wear some striking socks with their heels on. I have ALWAYS wanted to try them out. Ok, at the risk of being labelled as "Trying too hard", here is my very first attempt at rocking some heels and socks....

RIHANNA SHINES IN D&G




Word on the street is that Riri is in talks to replace Material girl Madonna as the face of Dolce and Gabanna, and with the amount of times Riri has shown up in a D&G frock, I say it is about time. This two tone leopard print dress is simply to-die for I foresee a lot of high street stores ringing up their designers and having them copy this beautiful creation of a dress.

I KNOW I AM TERRIBLY LATE!!!!

I am so very sorry my darlings, I do realise I am LATE!!! LATE LATE LATE! I've had access to these Balmain Paris Fashion week runway photos for ages now, and everyday I wake up I tell myself I would write a review on it. How could I forget about Balmain? I deserve to be punished by being forced to wear leopard print from head to toe for a whole month. Urghhh.
Ok so here are the pictures....












Leather tights, ripped denim and panty hose, denim jackets, spikes, studs, edgy boots, orgasmic blazers, plaids made to look oh-so-fashion forward, silver tights, a bit of military CHIC! All in one single collection, and yet there is a vision of uniformity and the theme of the collection bounces right off the pictures. And girls like me all over the world who are partial to the rock star look are digging their claws into their closet for any denim or leather item that can be ripped, frayed, safety pinned or made to look distressed

Newest addition to my Louboutin family.


Yep, yep! I have a new addition to my Christian Louboutin family, I wore them out last Friday and they were as comfortable as I hoped. And did I mention practical? They go with anything in my wardrobe! I'm a huge shoe fanatic so I've never really bothered to stock my closet with practical heels, I just buy any pair of heels I consider a piece of art, so I am particularly proud of myself that I have a pair that can stand the test of time.

Alexander Wang re-invents the classic LBD

Hello my darlings, I know I promised to do this post ASAP! But my very unreliable internet has been down perhaps its high time I figured out how to blog from my BlackBerry (sigh, that would be the day pigs learn how to fly). OKKK, back to fabulous mayhem business as usual.
So I have been looking for a designer that has taken a completely different approach to making the LBD look, "not-so-classic", the fun part about fashion is. after all breaking the rules that the fashion conscious are mean to follow. I was delighted when I saw Alexander Wang's re-invention of the LBD.
What I find very intriguing and incredibly fascinating at the same time is that Alexander Wang has managed to combine two very strong elements of fashion, which are the delicate sector and in contrast the tough and edgy sector of designs. His LBD's are Grecian in a beautifully draped form, but then you are terrible surprised when you see that his Grecian cuts are complemented with a little bit of turtle necks and a completely different take on the mono-strap style dress. One arm of the dress is almost long, but then the other arm is nearly non-existent in the sense that you are able to see just a tiny bit of fabric that forms the other arm. Another striking feature is the leather and sequin dress, a perfect example of a beautiful yet contrasting combination to make an LBD.
I could go on forever about this perfect take on the LBD...

THE LBD RE-INVENTED

Dear fashionistas, we all know that there's nothing quite like a CLASSIC Little Black Dress. Its a plain yet simultaneously beautiful canvas on which the limits of accessorising and complimenting with hair and make-up are endless. The Little black dress can be worn out to dinner, to the club, for weddings, to show your recent ex what they missed, to walk down the street to purchase some bubble gum. The possibilities are endless. It can be made shorter, frayed, safety pinned to match the occasion. You really can do WHATEVER! with this piece of art.
But what's a bit more intriguing to me is Alexander Wang who has recently been re-inventing the Little Black Dress and making it their own. I guess you can say that this post is heavily influenced by Alexander Wang's take on the Little Black Dress. Before I reveal his latest designs, I'll like to show some other Little Black Dresses that have been re-invented and scream sheer individualism.
