Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day Dress List

In celebration of Saint Valentine’s Day tomorrow and the beautiful New York Fashion Week collections being shown right now, here are some of my favourite looks which would be just perfect for this romantic occasion.

With a couple of days remaining during New York Fashion Week, it appears red will play an important role for the upcoming Fall season.

From Diane von Furstenberg to Victoria Beckham, Monique Lhuillier, Thakoon, DKNY and more, many have caught a little scarlet fever.

Paint The Town Red… not a colour for the faint of heart, red can give that unmistakable va-va-voom.

The colour of love, passion and seduction – red is the prefect choice for a romantic date this Valentine’s Day.

Some red hot inspiration…

Happy Valentine’s Day for tomorrow xx

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.

5. Paul Smith Celebrates The London Olympics

Paul Smith has designed a collection of seven stamps in celebration of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Inspired by his friend, Olympic cyclist Mark Cavendish, the stamps showcase Smith’s signature bright colour palette and distinct graphics. They are available from Paul Smith stores worldwide.
