In a world where we wouldn’t all first judge on appearance, this headline (and following story) wouldn’t have been possible. However, trying to bend the rules demands a swift play and twist on the rules. Today we look beyond covers and ad campaigns. Let’s go to the source of Kerry Washington’s new Allure cover and Karlie Kloss’s Nike advertorial.
Allure November 2014 has a special cover girl: Kerry Washington. Known (lately) as Olivia Pope in her new TV hit show Scandal, Kerry is one of today’s most appreciated actresses, thus a potential role model. Bringing her on a magazine cover with the ‘no-makeup’ label has a heavy impact on the audience. Makeup and photo-retouching have been around in fashion and beauty for longer than we remember, so it’s always major to have someone breaching that ground rule.

Granted, we may not have a six-page pictorial in Vogue magazine like Karlie did, but a change of hairdo makes for many Vogue pages in our day-to-day lives as we end up feeling like a star (in the best hair case scenario) or like a rebel (when our hair is fighting the cut).
Today we learn that two of the world’s most appreciated models have changed their hairdo and we’re now left with the inevitable dilemma: ‘to change or not to change, that is the question!’. Hopefully the following lines will help you get a clearer perspective on the hair matter before the Holidays festive season!

It’s time for the Weekend Fashion Story! The piece you’re about to read contains personal opinions from personal experience, thus making it a very authentic approach to style and fashion.
We’ve all heard, time and time again, that fashion is what you wear and style is how you wear it. And that a unique personality defines that unique personal style. But – guess what? We’re all unique! So all our style is our own, unique expression of fashion. Make it natural and authentic, that’s what I always think it’s best!
Naomi Campbell Without Makeup Will Leave You Speechless! 14 Stars Join Unicef’s Wakeupcall Challenge

When the ice bucket challenge hit the world, there was hardly any way to go around it. More or less cubes, everyone was getting their fair share of cold water in the name of charity and raising awareness.
Now there’s another movement, less icy, less honest. The ‘Wake Up Call’ challenge demands a makeup-free shot posted on the social media account. Not just any makeup-free, though, the very first after waking up in the morning! All that to raise awareness & donations for Syria and the Syrian Children (through Unicef). People get to nominate three others, just like in the ice bucket challenge. All sounds lovely and very fashion-y, but wait until you see Naomi Campbell!

Come All Hallows Evening , even pumpkins get their own costume! What is your pumpkin wearing this season, is it in or out of trends?
Starting off with what proved to be the most successful animated movie of all times: Frozen! Released in November 2013, Frozen has missed last Halloween so this year we’re about to see a lot of Elsas and Annas, Olafs and whatnots from the white mountains of Arendelle trick or treating straight to our doorsteps! Thusly, you need:

These are just the first five reasons militating against the use of foundation. Sure, every perspective is subjective and open for debates. But if the scientific proves included in this story would make you as much as flinch with a spark of doubt, don’t let go: try investigating the matter, you’d be surprise what you can find out about the beauty industry and its consumers!
The world we’re living in is ruled by fear, insecurities, lies! Let’s make a revolution! Let’s make that change, like Michael Jackson said – starting with the (wo)man in the mirror! Are you ready to really look at yourself and make that change? Why? Well, because…

How would you dress for a special comeback in the spotlight after a long absence? With your finest, wouldn’t you? Someone page Hilary Swank and tell her to ditch her stylist! She walked the Red Carpet after nearly 3 years of notable absence proudly wearing a complete fashion disaster!
Attending the premiere of her latest movie ‘The Homesman’ (written and directed by the grand Tommy Lee Jones), Hilary Swank felt a trendy/hipster urge and chose a Delpozo creation from the Spring Summer 2015 collection. Lovely colors, artistic (inspired by Josef Albers’ art), more-than-decent length but a mess overall!

How hard can fashion be? People learn how to build and master space rockets every year or so and we can’t learn how to master the fashion of clothing we’re using every day of our lives?
Reading these lines may prove to be an eye-opened for those who struggle with the ‘mysteries’ of fashion land and a confirmation for those who had their doubts all along! Being fashionable will never be easier and dressing up in the morning is going to look more and more like a playing dress-up when you were 5!
