What I Wore..

Wearing this gorgeous Carla Zampatti dress… my hair actually done; jewellery chosen specifically for my outfit; heels on my feet and not reconsidered at the last minute; and an actual handbag {not a baby nappy bag}… was the first time since mid-pregnancy I felt like myself again {in a fashion sense that is}.

To pin point this, I think it was a feeling of ‘put together’… as each element had been given thought and carefully considered. A sense of composure and confidence in knowing I looked how I wanted to look at that moment.

For me glamour and even more so innate style, is all about the finer details. The tender care that is placed into finding the right earring or those extra minutes taken to ensure your make up is just so. Because for me, style is a delicate combination of elegance and confidence with a splash of je ne sais quo {or something special you cannot quite place}.

Downtown cool meets feminine romance; understated yet luxurious…

Named Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in ‘Melancholia’, Kirsten Dunst is also receiving acclaim for her unique, nonchalant approach to style. Wonderfully feminine and sophisticated yet equally strong – Dunst is the epitome of modern-day, cool-girl chic.

A Popping Red Pout

A bold lip instantly creates a lasting impression & draws attention to a luscious pout.

Red lipstick is a true beauty icon. Timeless, classic and seductively chic – a red pout evokes smouldering ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ and unmistakable appeal.

As the most popular lip colour for nearly a century, red lipstick is elegant, sophisticated and sexy. The popularity of red lipstick was significantly boosted by Hollywood Silver Screen icons, like Marilyn Monroe, who would often choose vivid shades of red. Red lipstick brightens the face and whitens your smile.  And with so many red tones now available – there is certainly the perfect shade to complement any complexion.

And did you know… During World War II women were encouraged to wear red lipstick as a morale booster? Servicewomen were also required to wear lip colour that matched the red chevrons on their uniforms and cords on their hats. To meet this demand Elizabeth Arden created the iconic Montezuma Red.

Rock a bold red lip flawlessly with some simple preparation and a little tender loving care. Before applying your red shade, gently exfoliate lips and use a light balm. Keep your eye makeup minimal so all attention is drawn to your lovely lips.
