3 Most Important Beauty Case Fall Updates

While doing the fall beauty advertising story, I realized I felt the need to mark my fall calendar with significant beauty launches dates as I really wanted to try some of the new goodies they’ll be releasing this fall!

{1}Deborah Lippmann Sephora Nail Polish Collection. First, as you might expect, is the amazing new collection from Deborah Lippmann for Sephora! I was crossing my fingers for something like this to happen since OPI and Sephora parted ways earlier this year. There’s no telling what led to the breakout and as always no further details were released to the public, but even though I was a loyal OPI fan for so long, Deborah Lippmann (and Butter London) caught my attention recently and I was determined to try them out.

As such, scaling down the prices for Deborah Lippmann’s lovely polishes with a Sephora line is more than good news! So when’s the important day? September 5th! That’s when it launches. The prices? $17 for the polish and $19 for the glitter (treatments, tools and a gel kit are also available in this collection)

5 Ways To Wear The Year’s Most Important Trend: The Fishtail Braid

Last year it was the year of the gradient – from ombre nails to ombre cakes, we had a gradient touch for pretty much everything. This year, however, is definitely the year of the fishtail braid! I only picked up 5 examples to convince you that sooner you adopt the fishtail braid habits into your style, the better, fashionable you’ll be!

{1}The Fishtail Braid Hairdo: almost every one of our beloved famous ladies who walked the Red Carpet this year had a fishtail brad. On the side, on the back, the long or the short version, everybody has to wear a fishtail braided do at one point! (hit the jump to see the other 4!)

Bugatti For Elysium, Bentley For Bags: How To Choose Your New Bag!

While there was much bragging about Elysium’s fashion choices (namely the perfectly shaped Armani suits Jodie Foster’s character was wearing 24/7), less was said about the movie’s other visual branding. One of which, Bugatti, was particularly spotlighted during this summer’s most expected sci-fi blockbuster.

Should you have seen the movie and not felt particularly interested in Elysium’s technological crumbs, you still might remember the famous getaway shuttle used by Mr Carlyle. The red and black design is particularly flashy and, although assorted to Armadyne’s visual signatures (a similar red-black combo is also used for the droids), the Elysian Fulgar Shuttle is an emblematic vision of the movie. Both a spectacular transport vehicle and a fashion statement, Armadyne’s design is actually based on a Bugatti Veyron. Stunning machinery.

But wait, there’s more in our news bag today! Bugatti may have made it onto the big screen in a spectacular appearance, but Bentley has announced its foray into handbags while a Hong Kong-based loan company is using luxury handbags as collateral on loans. (got your attention already? Click through, we have loads to talk about!)

Pixie Hair Comeback: 6 Inspiring Famous Short Haircuts

When it comes to haircuts, I’m a pretty classic girl and I like my wavy, frizzy hair more on the long side. But short haircuts seem to be making a comeback this year as more and more famous ladies chop off their long locks in favor of a more or less radically short pixie cut.

The ‘pixie cut’ became a fashionable haircut statement ever since the 50s when Audrey Hepburn’s really short hair made all the hair rage after her Roman Holiday movie. Mia Farrow is one of the original pixie girls and an entire plethora of famous beautiful ladies followed suit along the years among which Twiggy, Jean Shimpton, Kate Moss or more recently Natalie Portman or Emma Watson. The short haircut fashion keeps coming back, it’s up to us whether we choose to follow it or not.

The latest adepts of the pixie cuts are: Beyonce and Coco Rocha. However, I also threw two more in the mix, for inspirations reasons – Miley Cyrus and Robin Wright.

3 Successful Actresses Leading Fall’s Beauty Ad Campaigns

While still under the menacing ‘last season’s trend’, nail art is slowly but steadily passing in last when it comes to this fall’s beauty ad campaigns. Cosmetics giants are putting all their money where the stars are so that we, completely blinded by their shine and fame, we’d just ravage the beauty counters in search for whatever they’re selling. Because we need that. We need whatever they’re selling for the promise of eternal beauty and fame, supreme recognition and adoration.

Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Diane Kruger were all contracted as spokespersons for three different brands in their respective beauty ad campaigns. Cate Blanchett is famously representing Giorgio Armani’s SI perfume ad campaign, a job that earned her a $10 Million paycheck. (there’s more under the cut, don’t miss the video after the jump!)

The New Fashion Books: 501 Jeans And Bikers Leather

There are fashion books and then there are fashion books. Which do you like most? No, haven’t omitted anything in the phrase above: from one point on, all fashion books look the same. Just like all fashion magazines look the same. What sets them apart? Us. Our personal preferences and moods.

As such, I found two very interesting projects turned into books for our visual festin, seasoned with heavy fashion hearts, style seeds and a nice reality dressing. I’m sure there are many more out there, at least one for every taste and dressy conviction, but this selection is just as unique as you. Or me. And we just love one-of-a-kind fabulous finds, don’t we?

Urban, modern fashion with bikers and classic jeans. Who wouldn’t feel enriched by this visual experience?

Uma Thurman’s Comeback Campari Cocktail

It’s a comeback day: our favorite Bride is slowly but steadily getting back in the fashion game, one sip at the time. She has been shooting for the renowned Campari calendar with Koto Bolofo and the behind the scenes teasers are just as intriguing as they are pleasant. More so, since the theme of next year’s calendar is pretty interesting: ‘Worldwide Celebrations’ and a rumored participation from one of the world’s most interesting and talented actors, Benicio del Toro!

It’s always good to see Uma Thurman, in print or on the big screen. But while I may be rejoicing her comeback, there’s also a very important mention to keep in mind: Campari calendars, besides casting the famous&the beautiful (Penelope Cruz was the star of the 2013 Campari Calendar while for 2012 we had the pleasure of admiring the always-futuristic Milla Jovovich) are also renowned for heavily retouching the celebrities/models posing in their pages.

2 Vogue Covers Confirm: Daria Werbowy Is Officially Back!

Well, hello there! look who’s back in fashion: Daria Werbowy! And she’s not shy about it either, claiming her reigning crown with not one but two Vogue covers and an ad campaign styled by Carine Roitfeld for Diane von Furstenberg, shot by Sebastian Faena.

I already said something about Daria’s Vogue Paris August 2013 issue cover, it’s time to talk about her inside pictorial as well. Except I’ll be brief about it as it’s not on my alley. Photographed by David Sims and styled by Emmanuelle Alt, Daria looks uncomfortable and uneasy, like a wet cat in a screen test for headbands. I’m not hyped about fall temperatures and the inevitable moisture and frizz, cold humid wind and muddy gardens, but for a pre-fall issue of a magazine as prestigious as Vogue Paris, this is a rather disappointing visual experience.
