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.

My London Favourite Pieces…

 

The vibrant, alluring and cosmopolitan nature of London makes London Fashion Week one of the most anticipated in all of the Fashion Week Calendars. It is renowned for showcasing young emerging talent right alongside Fashion Week Veterans (a la Burberry). And it was also of extra excitement to me this year living right nearby.  As many of you know I was lucky enough to attend and it is an experience that I will remember forever… my first London Fashion Week!

My favourite 12 looks from London Fashion Week are:

Holly Fulton is a new favourite of mine and I adore these high-waisted flared trousers with the striking patterns. The wispy, feminine dresses at Nicole Farhi, Julien Macdonald and Emilio de la Morena also caught my eye. My London Fashion Week choices show I am still mad about white, yellow and orange, but with more pink added in than New York!

Love the pink stripe pencil skirt and simple white shirt at Vivenne Westwood Red Label. Stripes also stood out at Sass and Bide when combined with a gorgeous textured skirt and belt. The Sass and Bide collection was one of my favourites of the week – perfectly bringing together edge with feminine beauty.

Erdem was the highlight of London Fashion Week for me. Whimsical, delicate and feminine. Erdem’s floral patterns, embroidery and use of lace equals undeniably exquisite. There are almost no words to quite describe it…xx
