One of my favourite designers debuted their much anticipated collab with H&M last night in New York. The Alexander Wang collection is sports/street wear inspired in a tonal palette of black, white, and grey–which I love. Interesting shapes, and textures are in full effect for the pieces, which are very much inspired by his mainline (the boots in the centre image are similar to ones I own from a season ago). I foresee the real issue for myself on November 6 will be what to put back. I kind of want it all.
Suki Waterhouse features in the new Burberry beauty campaign for their latest eye products. The black and white images are beautifully shot by photographer Cuneyt Akeroglu with makeup by Wendy Rowe.
I have a penchant for luxury cosmetics, so of course I’m very excited for the new Gucci line. The rich black, monogramed and gold accented packaging looks very decadent. I’m also very optimistic that the actual product will be up to makeup artist standard, as Pat McGrath was the pro behind the line.
Take a break from overly sculpted cheeks and opt for a peachy glow. Warm peach cheeks look beautiful on all skin tones.
Nicki Minaj in this menswear inspired editorial is simply perfect.

The makeup look from the Chloe show is both simple and pretty. The eyes are the main focus; I love the cool and warm combo of the colours. To recreate the look use lavender on the eyelids and a warm brown through the crease. Make sure to blend the brown shadow out towards the temple, and wrap it underneath the eyes. To achieve the diffused look use a cream shadow like MAC Mid-Tone Sepia. The skin should be perfected where needed with concealer, and a tiny amount should be applied to the lips to take down the natural lip colour.
Paris was like a creative overload. Incredible collections, spectacular shows, and brilliant makeup looks it was hard to pick only 9 looks. Clearly I need a bigger grid! The high gloss black masks, blocked out eyebrows and, impeccably blended bronze shadow at Alexander McQueen was my absolute favourite look of the week. Of course this strikingly beautiful look was the work of Pat McGrath.
Today completed a month long of amazing spring/summer collections. These celebs and industry insiders hopped from one show, and in some cases continent, to the next in impeccable style.
Here are 4 tips to plump your lips without injections:
1. Overdraw the lip edge. If your top lip is smaller then your bottom lip or vice versa, then balance them out. If both lips need a boost then overdraw the entire mouth.
2. For maximum effect choose a lipstick colour that’s light to medium in shade. Avoid anything too dark.
3. Anything with shine will reflect the light and enhance your lips, but overly glossy lips can be too much. For a more on trend look use a cream texture of lipstick and lip balm to add sheen.
4. Try Touche Eclat or touch of shimmery shadow to highlight the cupids bow.
I’ve always enjoyed Superdry outerwear for women and men. Who can forget the fabulous Tassel Biker Jacket worn by Poppy Delevingne at this years Coachella. I recently received the AW14 campaign, and since yesterday was the official first day of autumn, the video gives a bit of fall wardrobe inspiration. The new seasons collection includes a good range of parkas to beat even the coldest Canadian winter.
