Welcome Into The Beauty Land – Christian Louboutin Launches His Own Nail Polish Line

Christian Louboutin Nail Polish Line

Back in 1992, looking at one of his shoe sketch, Christian Louboutin, was disappointed that the actual shoe didn’t come out as colourful and bright as the original sketch, especially underneath, so, he took a bottle of nail polish from his assistant, who was yelling in protest, and his famous red soles were born.

Twenty two years later, the French footwear guru launches into the beauty world, with a collection of signature nail polishes in spiky bottles, strikingly tall just like his sexy heels.

About the unusual packaging the designer said that he took his inspiration from a forest of obelisks. “ If I do beauty, I have to do it my way. I am someone who likes objects.”

Simply Divin – A New Fragrance By The Legendary Editor-in-Chief of Vogue US, Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland

The legendary editor, the woman who changed the face of fashion, Diana Vreeland – editor-in-chief of Vogue US in the 1960s – now has her own perfume caring her name, thanks to her nephew, Alexander Vreeland who came up with the idea. There are five different scents in the collection, and their names are inspired by Diana’s outstanding personality – Extravagance Russe, Absolutely Vital, Perfectly Marvelous, Outrageously Vibrant, Simply Divine. ” Each scent unveils a vibrant top note, echoing Madame Vreeland’s distinct style ” – revealed Alexander Vreeland. The coloured glass bottle symbolises her love for colour, while the cap, her taste for extravagance and the oversized –  manufactured with the traditional French craftsmanship.

In her autobiography Diana Vreeland used to say about perfume : “ There’s a whole school now that says that the scent must be faint.  This is ridiculous.  I’m speaking from the experience of a lifetime. I always carry purse scent – that way I’m never without it.  Do you notice any scent on me now?  Don’t come any closer – if you have to sniff like a hound, it’s not enough! Perfume is an extravagance.  But it’s odd that Americans, who God knows are an extravagant people, have never used scents properly.  They buy bottles, but they don’t splash it on.  Chanel always used to say, keep a bottle in your bag, and refresh yourself with it continually.”

After six years of relationship with Johannes Huebl, Olivia Palermo got married. The couple planned a very intimate ceremony with just the family members and closed friends, that took place in a park in Bedford, New York. “We really wanted to keep this beautiful day very private and special to us and enjoyed the whole day with our family and two friends. Bedford is such an amazing and romantic countryside.”

Ever since the news of the wedding a lot of speculations about the socialite’s wedding dress were made – Olivia chose a different dress than most brides would pick – a Carolina Herrera design, made of a short tulle gown, a cashmere sweater and a pair of delicate shorts. The dress was completed by a pair of Manolo shoes, the exact pair that Carrie Bradshaw wore at her civil wedding with Mr. Big, in Sex and The City, the movie – she did not buy them especially for the occasion, but they are amongst Olivia’s favourite, and, it turned out to be also her “something blue“.

Cara Delevingne Takes It To Another Level – Designer for DKNY

Cara Delevingne for DKNY Capsule Collection

The most popular model, British Cara Delevingne, has become also a designer. In collaboration with DKNY she works on a capsule collection, entitled ‘Cara Delevingne for DKNY‘, scheduled to hit the counters in November 2014.

I can’t believe that some random, rough ideas have finally turned into my own collection…designs with my own name on them and in collaboration with the iconic DKNY brand,” she said to WWD. “It is so wild to realize that it has been an entire year since we began planning this project together…goes to show that time does fly when you’re having fun.”

She is one of the cool girls, photographed by the paparazzi on the streets of London and New-York with androgynous looks, skinny jeans, coloured snickers and woolly hats – she became a trend setter, having 5.5 million followers on Instagram, more even than Lady Gaga, that reached 3.7 million followers.

The collection will have 15 pieces, featuring many of the model’s favourites – shot tops, leather bombers, most of which are unisex – with prices that will range from $ 70 for a hat, to $ 150 for a t-shirt, and $ 735 for a leather motorcycle jacket with removable sleeves.

When asked about  her collaboration with the brand she says : “They always encouraged my design input, my personal style and my ideas from the very beginning of our working relationship. DKNY is urban and edgy but, most of all, it’s individual. They truly embrace the weirdness in all of us, so you can really be yourself.

La Perla’s Super Skinny Mannequin

La Perla’s Super Skinny Mannequin

Luxury label lingerie, La Perla, found itself in the middle of a controversial situation, on Twitter, after one New Yorker twitted a photo of the brand’s mannequin, in red lingerie with visible, shocking protruding ribs –  “How does #LaPerla think ribs on a mannequin is ok?!” The photograph made immediately a wave of disagreements among the outraged tweeters.

Spotted in the New York’s Soho boutique, the response of the brand came within a few hours after the initial complaint : The mannequin photographed has been removed from the store and will not be used again by any La Perla boutique. We are in the process of redesigning all La Perla stores with a new concept image and the mannequins that are currently displayed in our US stores will no longer be used. We appreciate and value everyone’s comments, thank you for bringing this to our attention.
