Olympic Metallics

Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…

All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.

While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.

And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…

Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

Editor’s Letter

January Inspiration

Just a few of the things that are making me smile this month…

Bonjour Bunnies!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a truly wonderful Christmas and a very successful start to 2012.

This month is very exciting for me. My first online store will be launching at CaraGray.com with my first collection of fashion inspired artworks available for purchase. I have been working on ‘The Woman Of Paris’ collection for quite some time and cannot wait for you to see all of my pieces. I am beyond excited and cannot wait to get underway. But more on this over the coming days…

I will also be back to posting daily on Uptown Twirl; writing a few guest articles for other fashion websites; & giving the Espresso Shots Of Fashion News an Uptown comeback!

Love Cara xx

P.s. What is currently on your inspirations list?

3. Emma Watson’s Lancôme Beauty

Emma Watson’s stunning Lancôme Cosmetics Ad has been revealed (pictured below). With her glowing clear complexion, Watson is exquisite in red lipstick and nail polish from the French label’s two new collections – ‘Rouge in Love’ (the lipstick collection) and ‘Vernis in Love’ (the nail polish collection). The lipsticks will be available in 24 shades and come in a metallic case that can also be used as a mirror.

With Watson as the face of both lines, Lancôme hopes to ignite a love of lipstick amongst a younger generation of women. Youcef Nabi, president of Lancôme International, has said: “The idea is to make this young generation — that has been a gloss fan — come back to using lipsticks.”

4. Emma Watson’s Iconic Crop

In other news, Emma Watson’s gorgeous pixie hair style has been named the most influential cut of 2011. The Wall Street Journal mentioned her darling crop in their Fashion Highlights from 2011 and even went so far as to recognise it may have instigated a major shift in hairstyle trends. Hair stylists around the world have been inundated with requests for her style and according to numerous reports, searches for Watson’s hair have even outnumbered those for Jennifer Anniston’s iconic locks.
