Beauty Tip Of The Week: Summer 2011 Runway Beauty Looks


A model shows off bright crimson lips and glowing skin at Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2011

Runway beauty looks during the spring/summer season always seem to have recurring themes. Fresh faces with hints of bronzer, pops of color here and there, blah, blah, blah. In a word: MINIMAL. THIS year however, designers upped the ante with polished skin, sexed up eyes, and the brightest, boldest lips ever- one designer even used a pale green hue!

Marc Jacobs added cherry stained lips, rosebud cheeks, and a touch of eyeliner

The best way to translate these looks from runway to reality, is to pick out an area that’s most appealing to you. For example, if you love red lips, keep the rest of the look modern with complimentary colors and an “undone” vibe. Winged out liquid liner, turquoise nails, and a messy, beachy bun is all you need for a sexy, summer style.

Moschino Cheap And Chic showed off messy manes and punch colored pouts

If you have problematic skin like I do, don’t fret. Many of these looks may seem minimal, but why not put your best face forward? If you’re brave enough to cut down on coverage, tinted moisturizers work wonders in hiding slight imperfections such as uneven skin tone. Apply a thin layer of concealer under the eyes, around the nose, and onto any spotty areas. Top off with a colorless, blotting powder and “perfect” skin is born! *For a flawless finish on a broken out area, make sure to blend in a bit of bronzer over foundation/concealer to “put life” back into the skin. You don’t ever want a cake face!

Alexandre Herchcovitch painted nails cool blue and mouths a modern shade of mint

Whatever inspires you for Summer 2011, the less effort, the better. There’s a reason why the slogan “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful” exists. Mix, match, and just have fun with it! Remember, it’s summertime… and the livin’s easy!

Fashion editorial Inspiration: Babes in Arms


Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Dries Van Noten get together for a smashing little rendezvous that sparks our creative senses,and sends us off on some costly little shopping sprees! Wait – no? Oh my bad, maybe that’s just me! Or at least, that’s what this spread makes me feel like doing. And since I can’t afford to hit up Barneys on a daily basis, I will settle the mock of the above for a third of the cost.
Enjoy the inspiration, colors, patterns and affordable alternatives available for your closets now!!

She’s Got Sole: Louis Vuitton Monogram Stars Acapulco Sneaker


Louis Vuitton is changing it up for Spring/Summer 2011!

Louis Vuitton is changing it up for Spring/Summer 2011!

Louis Vuitton has a big surprise in store for those of us with sole! The LV team has scheduled to release the Monogram Star Acapulco Sneaker for the Spring/Summer. The ‘sneaker boot’ includes a star pattern that decorates the entire upper along with a velcro strap closure around the ankle. The midsole, sole, eyelets, and laces are icy white with visible stitching. This colorway is a first for the top-tier designer. Louis V is known for classic, monochromatic designs. They’ve definitely stepped out of that norm by releasing their signature Acapulco sneaker in a turquoise hue. For added comfort there is even a removable anatomic insock. I’d love to snuggle my tootsies in this shoe, but with a $675 pricetag it may be too rich for my blood.

Amble, Louis Vuitton's first iPhone App

Louis Vuitton is no stranger to the luxury iPhone case game, producing plenty of damier printed goodies for the whole iPhone family.  But while they’ve done an admirable job of making your iPhone more stylish and protected, they haven’t really made it more useful…until now.  It’s taken a while but Louis Vuitton is finally throwing their hat into the iPhone app market.  But instead of throwing together some shoddily assembled promotional app, or simply letting you shop for Louis bags on your phone, they did one better and actually made something useful; Amble, an app that has been designed with the jet-setting, world weary traveler in mind.
