My holy grail makeup brand MAC launched their current Viva Glam lipstick with Nicki Minaj as the new face of the MAC aids fund. I’ve never really thought about it in this way before but the brand has cleverly used celebrity co-branding to create powerful advertising campaigns with Lady Gaga, Fergie, Cindy Lauper and Dita Von Teese representing the Viva Glam collection in previous years.
Rita Ora is rocking the hell out of the baby pink tropical cartoon print by Prada in February’s edition of ID magazine. I am over the moon to see this lady in the Summer, she is literally “hot right now”.
Delighted when I was asked to help ‘model’ for a third year Fashion Promotion student for her Final Major Project work, which was all about creating a jewelery magazine full of different story’s. Here’s what she produced from the editorial showcasing a tribal-esque perspex necklace from jewelery designer Collette Paterson who has worked for the likes of Thierry Mugler and Swarovski in Paris.
Came across these colourful print manic outfit shots whilst gathering up some street style snaps for the website I’m creating for the E-Marketing module. They are the perfect example of how to wear clashing prints and patterns - if only I was that brave to mix and match!
I had the opportunity to go to the Pure London event on 14th, February. For those who haven’t heard of Pure London it is one of the UK’s fashion exhibitions, showcasing a mix of middle market, contemporary and premium womenswear and young fashion brands.
Here are a few of the snapshots I took on the day.
The minute everyone stops caring about the state of certain countries in favor of their own is the minute we let ourselves down for the future. “We have reached a crucial time in history, where what we do or don’t do right now will affect the generations to come. We are not just making human history, we are shaping it” so easily through the means of digital communication so please watch, share and support - and help change the world.
It’s all about Metallic nails at Topshop, with their pearlescent shade in ‘Mesmerise’ from their new Sisters Of The New Moon make-up collection. The swallow Miu Miu-esque nail tattoos are a cute added touch that hits all the right spots for Spring.
A few weeks back our Fashion Marketing class had the opportunity to work with stylist Jennifer Anyan who gave us the task of creating a look with a classic white shirt. We decided to focus on manipulating the shape of the shirt to create something entirely new whilst keeping everything else simplistic.
Received this 4 strap harness belt in pastel green for my Spring fever fix and I can’t stop admiring the colour but unfortunately it doesn’t fit (the inconvenience of online shopping!) so will be sending back tomorrow :(
