Friday Editorial Love

Modern-day style icon Olivia Palermo graces the cover of Tatler Russia in a rainbow of darling colour…

The fashion starlet, model and actress, who has become known for her impeccably polished wardrobe, is one of the most watched style muses of today. Favouring classic pieces and gravitating towards sharp tailoring, Palermo’s style is timelessly chic and effortlessly glamorous.

This editorial for Tatler Russia evokes the allure of Palermo’s feminine style.

Wearing beautiful brights from Elie Saab, John Galliano, Marni, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani and others, the imagery has a refined beauty and yet playful spirit. Shot in Madrid by Santiago Esteban, the editorial is a sweet mix of elegance and whimsy – perfect for envisioning an opulent Summer romance…

“Fashion is something that interests me on a daily basis – it started when I would see my mother and aunt get dressed up and go out at night in the city.”
– Olivia Palermo

Happy Weekend! xx

Prada Swimwear Shape Up

Prada’s exquisite curve-accentuating, bedazzled bathing suits have become the shimmering icons of Spring / Summer dressing.

These colourful, embellished bathing suits have captured the hearts of Magazine Editors and Stylists around the globe. Racking up countless Magazine covers and editorials, these vintage-inspired swim suits are the toast of the season.

Appearing on the catwalk of the Prada Spring / Summer 2012 collection; Miuccia Prada took inspiration from 60’s Americana; fast cars; and a celebration of feminine sweetness. Deep v-necklines and strategically placed lines of colourful crystals drew eyes inwards – accentuating the waist and emphasising feminine curves.

Created with graduating colours (beige, pink, red and black); crocheted flowers; or diamante crystals; these bathing suits have such beauty, texture, and craftsmanship one could be mistaken for hanging them on a wall rather than wearing them by the pool. Perfect then that the Prada one-piece is the cover subject of the season…

Do you covet the Prada one-piece? xx

Colourful Peepers

The eye make-up palettes from the Fall collections were full of technicolour delights. From vivid orange to hypnotic green, the eyes have it in candy colours that pop perfect for your Easter long weekend.

Atmospheric eye make-up has a retro elegance for Fall. Take your cue from rich hues; bold lines; and an explosion of concentrated colour – across the lids, lashes & lips.

Statement making peepers appeared across the runways. At Prada, futuristic eyes had a Mad Max inspiration. Black was painted around the eyes and finished with bursts of orange intensity at the brow. Prabal Gurung’s brilliant blue plumes evoked a striking peacock; while at Stella McCartney lashes were layered in beautiful blue mascara.  

At Anna Sui, theatrical cobalt blue eyeliner flicks made a startlingly beautiful impression. To create the look, a thick liquid line was drawn along the models’ upper lashes with an upward flick on the end. The inner rim was traced with a white pencil to open the eye, before a coat of mascara added a dramatic 60’s feel.

Inspired by candy coloured brights, eye make-up is delicious enough to eat this Easter…

Will you embrace candy coloured eye make-up? xx
