Model of the Moment: Aya Jones

Aya Jones was scouted in her hometown of Paris, and it’s blatantly obvious why: 5’10, oval faced, doe eyes, and those lips. Aya debuted in Milan walking exclusively for Prada’s Spring 2015 show. After that she was up and down the runways of the most sort after designers, most recently walking the couture collections in Paris last week. I’m quite sure her show list will be long by the time fall collections conclude in March.

As the new year begins so does awards season in Hollywood. W magazine pays tribute with a collection of magazine covers featuring potential nominees. These four are my top picks, especially Julianne Moore and Emma Stone’s covers. Those lashes are amazing!

Chanel Reincarnation

A few of my favourite moments are Cara singing at around 5:07, the dance at 6:07, and of course the end which is how Gabrielle Chanel was inspired to create the iconic Chanel jacket.

Model of the Moment: Riley Montana

Relatively new face Riley Montana has gorgeous skin, intense eyes, and a regal neck. It’s no wonder that Riley walked in some major shows this past fashion month including opening the Balmain show; and already has a Givenchy campaign on her resume. This girl is one to watch.

Toronto Fashion Week SS15 Day 4 & 5

Toronto_fashion_week_ss15

The makeup looks for day 4 were all about dewy, highlighted skin as seen at Caitlin Power and Rudsak.  Our go to products to create these looks were Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded and Too Cool, mixed with Baby Lips. The first show on Friday was a very strong look for Huntress. Exaggerated smoky eyes and elongated brows. My favourite show of the day was Mikhael Kale, who also happens to be my favourite Canadian designer.  Grace Lee designed the cool black and white eyeliner look, full brows, nude lips and natural skin.

Toronto Fashion Week SS15 Day 2 & 3

I don’t even know where the past four days went to. Toronto fashion week is zipping by so quickly this season. Day one was amazing but extremly hectic, and I had no time to take any pictures.  A few of my favourite looks from Tuesday were the natural skin, full eyebrow and nude lip from Melissa Nepton, and the beautiful scarlet matte lips at Target. Wednesday started off with smoky eyes at Rudy Bois and ended with neon two-tone lips at Hayley Elsaesser.

Alexander Wang for H&M

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.
