makeup part one.....

It’s too early for my brain to fully function @ multitasking at the moment. I’m in the process of thinking about what to wear whilst trying to work out which of these vitamins i should be eating, whilst eating breakfast (French bread and tea, just so you know) and trying to set up twitter, all at the same bloody time. So instead of failing to multitask i shall post this instead (dang you procrastination you win again), this post will be in parts it'll be a run up to new year's festivities (shucks i can't believe it’s going to be 2011 already) (hey brain why are there so many comments in brackets?!).
Anyhoo as I was saying here are a few ideas for party make up, be adventurous with your makeup in the evening

Carolina Herrera pre-fall 2011

Hello fashion junkies,

Normally I don't tend to bother looking at Herrera's fashion offerings, I think I view her clothes as something an older woman would wear or someone far more refine than I am would wear. (Actually scrap the end part I am refined dang it.) When I saw this pre-fall collection I immediately started shouting the names of the various celebrities I actually can see wearing these dresses at the ocars, golden globes etc, I mean much to the fear of my mother who thought I had a fit or something or that nature.
In fact I’m going to stick my neck out here and say Helen Miran should most definitely wearing the black and gold dress and I would love to see Carrie Mullen in the puff ball skirt and jacket combo. Mark my words you will definitely see someone wearing one of these dresses very soon. I've picked out some of my favourites.

Also slightly random but I would love some ideas as to what book i should start reading next.
Much luv

Oh baby it’s cold outside!

 Dazed and confusion did an article on the French duo who have just produced the soundtrack to the Tron film, nothing like a bit of electronic music in this type of weather, check out the album it's quite good. In the meantime enjoy the pictures from the article. Let me know what you think!
I keep looking outside contemplating on whether or not I should leave my home but every time I build up enough courage to go the snow fall seems to get much heavier. So to give that 'get up and go' feeling I'm listening to some classic daft punk. (Also this is the first video I've posted im so proud of me)

British fashion awards 2010

Hey there fashion junkies, here's a round up of the 2010 British fashion awards.
Naomi Campbell in Alexander McQueen (a fitting outfit for the night, not only did she win an award but also presented and paid tribute to McQueen for the outstanding achievement award )
Hats off to you Naomi for mentioning that there are not enough models of colour in fashion, these designers (and fashion magazine editors for that matter) need to pull their finger out and realise the world is in beautiful Technicolor! Also well done for winning the special recognition award, a whooping 25years in fashion.

Alexa Chung in Chanel.
Our dear style queen picked up the award for the most stylish person ever lool I mean this year. She always seems to get it so right, take the picture below for instance love the ombre hair, love the spring 2011 Chanel dress with feathers and chunky Prada, ticks all the right boxes. What do you think of this outfit?

Daisy Lowe in Ellie Saab.
I’m not a huge fan of the Goth look but Miss Lowe is working it here and I like the fact that she went quite minimalistic on the accessories.

Oh Claudia Winkleman you got it oh so right with the look but soooooo wrong with the tan. Her makeup looks so caked on it’s hard to recognise her.
Put down your tan bottles people its winter and if that’s just an unbearable thought try to make it look natural, think winter sun tan instead of orange peel tan!

I know him as the hottie in the D&G adverts you may know him as the delightful David Gandy.  Sadly he lost out to Lara Stone for the model of the year award but we can still appreciate his modelling talents. (Enjoy the picture)

Hahaha you’ll enjoy the next picture I swear. You know when you pose for a picture, your mind is telling you ‘hey man look at me, I’m sexy’  but your pose isn’t quite there yet? that’s why I LOVE this Nicholas Kirkwood’s pose it’s so……..well me in photos. Well done Mr Kirkwood for winning accessories designer of the year award

Henry Holland and Charlotte Olympia Dellal looking ab fab. I’m loving the retro feel of this look (anyone wish these two were a couple, just for the sheer fashion factor….no? ah well just me then)

And the winner goes to…..
Brand of the Year: Mulberry. This has been an amazing year for the Mulberry brand and this award must have been such a nice pat on the back.
Designer of the Year: Phoebe Philo for CĂ©line. This one was a toughie I would have been happy with either Celine or Erdem.
Digital Innovation: Burberry
And finally BFC Outstanding Achievement in Fashion goes to ALEXANDER MCQUEEN. And rightly so!

H&M Spring 2011

Our fav high street store has released images from the spring 2011 range. The collection is very 50-60s inspired but updated with bubble skirts, psychedelic prints, and the best news of all......MORE MAXI DRESSES NEXT SEASON. I love the shocking pink dress, just divine.
What do you think?
