Stella's Purple

When I first discovered Yves Saint Laurent’s Faux Cils in Extreme Purple, almost 10 years ago, it immediately became the only mascara I’d ever wear. So after spotting an even more vivid hue on the eyelashes of models at Stella McCartney‘s fall show, I became a bit envious. Is it time to move on to bolder and brighter? Do you wear colored mascara? If so, I’d love to hear your recommendations!

Shiny Turquoise nail polish

If you’re a fan of pretty shiny things, you’re going to love our first spring mani of the season. We all know everything looks better dipped in gold, so we thought this should do the trick. I decided to use gold leafing sheets to accent the corners of these turquoise nails. Here’s how you do it:

TOOLS: Turquoise nail polish, gold leafing sheets (available at your local art supply stores or see link below), clear top coat, nail file, q-tip (regular or pointed).


    Select a good turquoise polish. I used this one, but to be honest you can use any color that you think goes well with gold. (It’s really pretty with white   coral!)
    Paint all of your nails with the base color you choose.
    Gold leaf sheets (I used these) are very delicate so make sure your hands are clean   dry before handling. They tear so easily! Use scissors to cut small triangle shapes that will fit the corners of your nails. You want to cover about 1/3 of your nail, so make your triangles about that size.
    Wet a q-tip and use that to pick up your gold triangle. Don’t try to pick them up with your fingers– you’ll crumble them and that’s a bummer!
    Lay the gold leaf triangle on the corner of the nail. You want to work quickly so the leafing sticks to the polish. The polish should be dry but still slightly tacky. If it’s too dry, put a very thin layer of clear top coat down before laying the leaf on the nail.
    Smooth over the gold leaf with a clean dry q-tip to remove wrinkles/bubbles. If you mess up and chip off a piece of gold, it’s totally fine! Gold leafing is so thin that you can just lay another piece over the messed up part and it blends right in.
    Use a nail file to gently file off the excess just like you would with nail stickers!
    Finish with a quick drying clear coat to lock the gold leafing down!

Chanel Fall 2012 Bling Your Eyes

Yesterday at Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld upped the ante with yet another imaginative and sensational spectacle – this time with crystals as the prominent theme. Rich-toned, dark hued ensembles were embellished with crystal adorned hems, epaulets, heels, and accessories. Lesage, the legendary couture embroidery house, created bejeweled strips that boldly defined models’ eyebrows. Far out and extraordinary.

The Wedding of Charlene

From 1530, the first guests arrive at the Palace. They will take up to 800 people, located in an arc behind the bride and groom, in the courtyard, transformed for the occasion into a cathedral in the open. But to get there, they will have walked a red carpet, red carpets similar to used by the stars during the first or major events like the Oscar, with mandatory stop at the many accredited photographers. The red carpet will then be signed by the bride and groom, cut into pieces and sold for charity sponsored by the couple.

Prince Albert II enters, wearing a white suit any rifleman. Charlene Wittstock then raised the red carpet, the arm of her father. The bride wears an Armani gown with a train 20 meters long, but does no jewelry. Only a diamond brooch mounted trembling, loaned by Princess Caroline, holding her veil (an idea to steal from!). One can then see her wedding dress, white duchess silk, with embroidery in the shape of flowers, while strung readings of the Bible, made ​​by the niece of Albert II, Pauline Ducruet and Charlotte Casiraghi.

 The bride and groom retire to the palace chapel to sign the marriage records, with their witnesses, Chris Le Vine and Donatella Knecht de Massy.

The couple then joined his hybrid car convertible, under a shower of rose petals thrown by the Monegasque gathered on Palace Square. They are followed by a procession of small bridesmaids, dressed in traditional costume Monaco.

The royal couple returns to the palace for official photo shoots, under the lens of master photographer Patrick Demarchelier. Only ask the bride and groom, their witnesses and then finally with the heads of state.
