MAC: Style Warriors Collection

Introducing the new MAC Cosmetics collection, Style Warriors. Which was created to celebrate and target the cross-cultural sophistication of the modern day African Queen, Amazon Princess...fusing bold combinations of hues and tones, with spectacular shine and shimmer. The result could only be a dramatically diverse and unique pallet. The exotic collection features a selection of summer bronzing shades for cheeks, lips, eyes, nails, and the very innovative Solar Bits, Which are pigments that come in condensed clusters, that deliver a gorgeous tone and frost effect, ideal for eyes and cheeks. The interesting thing about them is you can crush them directly on your skin for a burst of dramatic shine and color. Or use your brush over the clusters and apply for sheer shimmer.
The packaging is divine, stylized zebra and leopard prints to keep things fun and interesting!

Natalia Vodianova for Vogue Russia June 2009

Veteran supermodel, Natalia Vodianova will grace the cover of yet another Russian Vogue issue. Which is accompanied by an editorial as well, both shot by photographer Alasdair McLellan. On the cover, the 27 year old model is seen flaunting her assets and wearing a pair of bunny ears seen in the latest Louis Vuitton fall/winter collection. She wear a pair of black ones in her editorial.
I don't really love this cover, and it's quite curious how more and more covers are being shot in a studio against a white background.

FALL 2009/2010 : THE LSD calls it the LSD - The Little Sequined Dress. Either seen in stripes at Alexandre Herchcovitch, metal discs at Alexander Wang or rhinestones at Balmain, truth is, sequins were seen all over short mini-skirt dresses in the recently presented fall/winter 2009 collections. Witnessed being worn belted, with opaque leggings, sheer tights, bare legged, leather pants, booties and over the knee boots, proving the fact that the LSD can be worn with versatility and in endless ways.

Vlada Roslyakova for Numéro Tokyo July/August 2009

Supermodel Vlada Roslyakova will be the covergirl for the July/August issue of Numéro Tokyo. The 21 tyear old is seen wearing a rose printed red and black dress with a lovely acrylic hair bow. Vlada's beauty is mesmerizing, her piercing blue eyes against the red, white and black colors is divine.
Her editorial although is way more exciting then her cover. Shot by David Vasiljevic and styled by Victoria Adcock, the Russian model plays the part of 80’s jailbait.
The Valley Girl themed story features high ponytails, big bows, lace, and denim, as far as Madonna’s eye can see.

Photo of the Week

I positively love this shot! Models backstage during John Galliano's F/W 2009 collection!
The shoes were simply splendid, dangerously high, laced up and had attached pom-poms!
