Monday Make-up Spotlight…

Statement Lips At Fendi

Fendi’s Spring / Summer 2011 collection (pictured above) popped with striking lip colours that just make you want to kiss! Shades of fluorescent melon, cerise, and fuchsia were hand-mixed by Make-up artists to achieve these luscious statement lips. Hair was straight and left down while eyes were left natural; drawing all focus to those spectacular lips!  So don’t shy away from the make-up spotlight; make your lips hard to miss! 

Dark Eyes A La Chanel

Season after season nothing says sexy like smoky, dark eyes. Chanel perfected this look, bringing drama, edge and mysterious beauty to its Spring / Summer 2011 collection (pictured below). Chanel’s Global Creative Director of Make-Up, Peter Philips, used an emerald tinged onyx black shade on eyes. Hair was perfectly neat while lips and cheeks were kept natural with just a little rosy shimmer. When emphasising the smoky eye, expect a dark, alluring summer!

In The Pink At Nina Ricci

Going pink from lash to brow, Nina Ricci’s collection was all about the eyelids (pictured below). Pretty, feminine and whimsical; the make-up and styling perfectly accompanied the look and feel of the collection. Mascara and eyeliner were kept to a minimum, drawing you in to the models’ lovely big eyes. Porcelain skin and messily swept back hair also hit just the right spot. For oh so pretty lids, make it pink!

Milan S/S Collections

My Milan Favourite Pieces…

Photos from

While I usually select my favourite 15 looks, the magnificent Milan offered so many delightful pieces that I just couldn’t choose! So I decided to extend my top looks to 17! These are my favourite looks from Milan Spring / Summer Fashion Week…

Luscious white and gorgeous shades of oranges and pinks again captured my attention. I want the entire Fendi collection and have a new found love for D&G. Versace offered its usual spectacular array of feminine pieces that oozed pure siren sex appeal; Just Cavalli’s 1970’s edge was undeniably cool; while Jil Sander’s maxi skirts in lovely shades and patterns was a breath of fresh air.

Meanwhile Prada’s S/S collection was probably the most unexpected. It was a feast for the eyes, offering everything from monkey and banana prints, stripes, florescent coloured furs, and shapes that took inspiration from uniforms – prisoner, postman, sailor, to name but a few. Miuccia Prada’s statement of the collection, “It’s time to be bold”. It is Prada after all….

In conclusion, Milan was simply magnifique xx
