The Bec and Bridge SS12 collection hit the Sydney Fashion Week catwalk this season with beauty from Mac Cosmetics. We have to admit we completely fell in love with this sultry femme fatale look. The hair, beauty and collection made the models look like empowered, strong creatures. Simply beautiful.
Dita Von Teese will be launching the Dita Von Teese fragrance in the United Kingdom at Liberty London this week
Dita Von Teese will appear at Liberty London on Tuesday the 1st of May from 10am till noon. This will give customers a chance to meet the seductive superstar and have their bottle signed by her in person.
Dita claims about her perfume “I wanted it to be a perfume that smelled exactly how I imagined it. A scent needs to reflect all the different facets of my personality. It had to be elegant, glamorous, sophisticated, sexy, dark, and mysterious.”
In our opinion if the imagery is anything to go by, this fragrance will be simply beautiful. A divine creature creating a divine scent.

The infamous Alexander McQueen label returned to London Fashion Week with the McQ AW12 collection. With this monumental event in the fashion calender, it is no surprise that Mac Cosmetics were on hand to create the beauty looks to compliment the collection, which was certainly a show stealer.
I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with some of the most iconic names in fashion and beauty. I can tell you now, all this claim of doom and gloom, is nonsense. Fashion and beauty are fantastic industries. They adapt, they change, they constantly strive to grow and be the first.
They are run by pioneers, not only in the respected industry but in humanity. Some of these key figures literately enthrall me with their patterns of thinking. I’ve been at the forefront of a few industries and honestly, nothing excites me more than technology, fashion and beauty. The amalgamation of all three leads to some of the most forward human beings this generation has ever had to offer.
So why are there constant bitching and blogging about “the state of the industry” this whole something for nothing mentality? … Read More »
Let this be known to the world, and I want to be heard- if I could leave this earth and come back as a single garment, it would be a Gucci gown. The plunging neck lines, sheer black tulle, and generous amount of exposed skin was enough to stop my heart. My breathing was definitely effected and slowed with each new dress to descend the runway.
The movement of the translucent textures appeared as if each came with it’s own invisible fan, giving the models an esoteric and ethereal float into the audience.
Deep plum lips contrasted sharply against idealistic skin turning every model into vampiric aristocrats, each worthy to lead their own wicked coven as a mistress of the night.
Frida Giannini featured a grandiose array of dark hues in black, purple, green, blue, and dark burgundy in velvety textures inspired by 19th-century romanticism. True … Read More »
Mac Cosmetics have announced there will be a Marilyn Monroe x Mac collection during 2012.
Whilst previous collaborations have included Daphne Guinness and Gareth Pugh, there is no doubt that this will be the biggest name in modern history to collaborate with a cosmetics company. Even if it is her legacy and estate that will be doing the collaboration.
The collection is very likely to include eye shadow, eye liner, lipstick and nail polish. All in homage to the iconic being and force that Marilyn Monroe was.
Mac have set a launch date for October 2012, so there will be a while of waiting yet, but it will be worth it, even just to see how much product Mac manages to shift in its first week of launch, it’s sure to fly off the shelves!
Models looked like mannequins walking the dark runway in nothing but shades of black, blue, and white, but while the palette was simple, the makeup was far from it. MAC artist Charlotte Tillbury led the makeup team using Gurung’s “birds of paradise” inspired theme on the eyes. Shades of cobalt and azure brushed across lids in soft strokes mimicking the movement of feathers bringing the focus straight to the intense stare of every girl. Pops of copper under the eye brightened and maximized intensity of the look, complimenting the dark esthetic of the clothing.
The hair was natural clean and straight to panegyrize the face. TIGI’s Paul Hanlon explained with makeup so bold, the hair needed to be simplistic and strong.
Gurung pulled his influence from the Japanese motif of “cursed” vs “uncursed”, each brunette model in dark clothing walking first, followed by the blondes in white.
This transcendental journey through each piece shifted through cerulean psychedelic … Read More »
