APRIL INSPIRATION

“Beneath the makeup & behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”
― Marilyn Monroe

I am so excited for April! Over the next few weeks, I will be placing a selection of new pieces on caragray.com & I cannot wait to share them with you. 

I will also be launching my tumblr and Pinterest accounts! So be sure to watch this space. AND it is also Cadbury Creme Egg month… need I say more!

Some of my April inspirations….

Vibrant orange; tortoise shell sunglasses; straight bob-length hair; pretty floral prints; pink nail polish tones; The Great Gatsby; Drew Barrymore’s hair colour; Kate Moss at the Ritz after a Chanel shopping spree; timeless, whimsical beauty at the Valentino Fall 2012 collection; the stunning Grace Kelly; being overtly girly playing with lipstick and dressing-up…

What is inspiring you right now? xx

Dakota Fanning for Marc Jacobs

Dakota Fanning’s campaign for Marc Jacob’s fragrance ‘Oh, Lola!’ has been released and the results are divine! The enchanting 17-year-old was shot by Juergen Teller for the campaign, which sees her channel the 1962 film ‘Lolita’.

Of making Fanning the face of ‘Oh, Lola!’, Marc Jacobs said: “When we were speaking about who to use in the ads, I had recently seen ‘The Runaways’…I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet.”

Tom Ford & Lara Stone For Tom Ford

Tom Ford’s new make-up collection campaign has been released and features the designer himself alongside the sexy Lara Stone. Photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot, the campaign highlights striking high-impact looks and intense make-up colour.

Of putting himself in frame, Ford has said: “I’m not in the ads because I’m vain. A lot of people still don’t know who I am and the product sells better with me in the ads. The old designers — Yves [Saint Laurent], Giorgio [Armani] and Ralph [Lauren] — occasionally used to do it.”
