Hot Mess Monday - Sandra Bullock


If you haven't already seen this hot mess - here it is...Sandra Bullock decided to wear this confusing piece at the All About Steve premiere in Hollywood. This "fashion forward" piece is created by Lanvin. It seems as though she decided to stuff a dress into a a skirt, and ultimately failed, judging by that red piece of fabric cascading down one side. The black booties seem pretty off as well. Her hair...oh boy...her hair...I'm just going to assume that she did it herself, because it looks like crap.

Happy Monday!!

Fabulous Friday - Miranda Kerr


It's Friday!!! Here is Miranda Kerr at the Victoria's Secret Heavenly Enchanted launch event in a beautiful Dior mini dress and Miu Miu pumps. I love the colour of this dress and the pumps are a prefect match. She looks great, but I must say that she looks better with dark hair. My one question is...why is SHE dating Orlando Bloom??? Yuck!!!

Giorgio Armani Beauty Manta Ray Fall 2009 Collection


At Giorgio Armani Beauty, the new fall dress code is “Greige.” Subtle but distinct tones accentuate a deep smoky eye contrasted with a fresh, luminous complexion and a muted, but intense lip color.
Manta Ray Eye Shadow Palettes: The star product of the season is the eye duo palette, which is dressed with an exotic Manta Ray pattern. Inspired by the precious and luxurious materials used in Giorgio Armani fashion accessories, these eye shadow palettes offer a beautiful selection of color harmonies inspired by nature. The collection features subtle hues that offer a new take on the timeless color “Greige,” created by Giorgio Armani.
No. 1 – charcoal and Greige, the ultimate eye shadow combination for this season’s smoky eye
No. 2 – deep ocean blue and intense ocean green
No. 3 – pale lilac grey and luminous fuchsia
No. 4 – light blue stone and sandy beige
No. 5 – shimmering lilac pearl and pale green pearl
Armani Liquid Silk Eye Liners in matte charcoal grey No.1 or midnight metallic blue No.2 contrast the softer Greige tones with a smooth high precision stroke. The formula, which contains micro dispersed waxes and micro-fil polymers, boosts the deep intense color and ensures a long-lasting, quick-drying application. The brush on this is super-fine and the colors are rich and pigmented.
Armani Silk Lipstick in this season’s must-have shade No.92 accentuates the natural lip color, keeping the focus on the eyes. The grey-blue tones in this soft plum lipstick add intensity to the lip without giving a dark contract, the new alternative to beige. The Armani Silk lipstick formula dresses the lips with a hydrating and silky veil. Specific oils allow the shade to reveal intense and radiant color, resulting in a luminous blush on the lips.
Eyes to Kill Mascara - Dress the eye with powerful, plush, voluminous lashes. Fine, fluid Microfil technology creates intensely captivating lash texture. Micro-waxes combined with a fineness agent allow for smooth and easy application, revealing weightless volume and length. Right now, this is my must-have mascara.
The Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection is available for a limited time online and at selected fine department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.

Smashbox High Definition Dual Finish Micro Powder


Smashbox High Definition Dual Finish Micro Powder is the first of it's kind. First off, it is SPF 15 which is great. Secondly, it is a translucent, oil-absorbing powder that lets you decide between three different finishes. Select the "matte" finish to absorbs shine, select "luminous" for a glow, or select "mix" to get the best of both! This is also great for touch ups on the go, because the brush locks so you don't have to worry about it spilling all over your bag. Love it!

    Holmes & Yang


    Katie Holmes and stylist Jeanne Yang will be releasing a premium clothing line that will be sold at the posh LA boutique Maxfield this fall. This line will be for women and children and is said to be filled with classic fare. I'm sure it will be uber expensive. Is it really necessary for Katie Holmes to be in fashion. I personally don't like her style very much...

    Above is a picture of Katie rocking one of her own designs...

    What do you ladies think? Are you excited for this line?

    Chanel Fall 2009 Make Up Collection: Venise de Chanel


    Chanel's Fall 2009 Makeup Collection was inspired by Venice. They have taken the shimmery facades and mosaics of the classic and romantic city, along with the beautiful aquatic colors of the lagoons and used them to create their new modern and edgy collection for fall 2009.

    Eyes

    Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Murano - a beautiful and sultry eye shadow quad that gives you shades of pink, moss, green shimmer, and sea foam.

    Irreelle Duo Silky Eye Shadow Duo in Acqua Alta - the perfect match of grey and white eye shadows makes a quick and beautiful smoky eye as easy as one, two, three.

    Limited Edition Luminous Cream Quadra Eye Shadow - a fabulous new gel/cream eyeshadow that easily goes from sheer to intense in no time flat. The burgundy-red shade is a big hit for fall 2009, straight from the runways. Le Crayon Sourcils Precision Brow Definer in Blond Clair and Cendre Noir - two completely different shades of a really phenomenal eye brow pencil, making it easy for everyone to find the perfect match. Say goodbye to sparse brows this fall.

    Lips

    Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour in Intuitive(pink-brown), Clandestine(rich brick),Captive(classic brown), Amusing(rosewood),Comedia(true rose), and Instinctive(pink nude) - with six new luxuriant shades to the Rouge Allure collection, there is a perfect shade to fit all of your new fall wardrobe needs.

    Levres Scintillantes Glossimers in Courtisane(natural pink) and Arelequin(glossy gold) - with two shades from different sides of the color wheel, it will be easy peezy to find the perfect Glossimer for you new fall wardrobe. The colors are so stunning; they can actually both be used by almost all skin tones.

    Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in Praline d'Or (golden nude) - a beautiful nude shade that is perfect for everyone. This golden nude shade makes a perfect base on your lips so you can add any shade of your favourite lip gloss on top.

    Face

    Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Fresque(subtle peach) - peach blush looks wonderful on all skin tones and makes you look rejuvenated, young, and fresh. Fresque gives just the right amount of a subtle peach hue, which is perfect alone or over a more pink/plum tone.

    Les Tissages de Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Sienna (earthy bronze) - the blush alone is beautiful enough, but once applied it gives your skin a wonderful slightly bronzed glow. This is perfect for fall, where you can still maintain a slight summer bronze hue without looking fake.

    Poudre Douce Soft Pressed Powder in Peche Caresse (soft peach) - a perfect soft pressed powder to use all over your face and décolleté, giving you a soft glow for fall.

    Nails

    Le Vernis Nail Colour in Intermezzo(pearl white) and Gondola(shimmery maroon) - the pearl white shade is great to wear alone or over another shade to add a little pop of pearl while Gondola lives true to the colors of fall 2009 with a deep rich, yet shimmery, maroon. Wear them alone or together for your own color combinations of fall.

    Hot Mess Monday - Audrina Patridge


    How much do I love Hot Mess Monday?? Let's take a look at Audrina...she went from being fabulous to being a complete and utter mess. Can you say grunge? Those jeans are AWFUL!! She must have attacked herself with scissors before she left her house. I understand that distressed jeans are nice and can be very stylish, but this is just taking it overboard. I hope she didn't pay for those jeans...

    Not only is Audrina a hot mess, but she is a hot drunk mess in this picture...love it!!

    NAILING IT
    THE STORY BEHIND M·A·C COSMETICS NAIL TREND F/W ‘09 BY JIN SOON
    When M·A·C Cosmetics and renowned nail artist Jin Soon Choi came together, it was a true meeting of fashion-forward minds with trend-setting style. A permanent fixture backstage at Fashion Week and an editorial darling, Jin Soon has worked with renowned designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Derek Lam, J.Mendel, Matthew Williamson, and Doo.Ri, as well as venerable photographers Steven Meisel, Irving Penn, Annie Leibovitz, Craig McDean and Michael Thompson. She is also famous for making A-list celebrity hands and feet as flawless and glamorous as their faces.
    After 20 years of working in the fashion and beauty industry, Jin Soon is one of the most influential nail stylists in the business. For her first-ever brand collaboration, she had a clear vision: highly pigmented, bold nail colours with a long-lasting, high-shine cream finish. With that direction, M·A·C Product Development experts set out to develop a F/W ‘09 trend-driven nail collection that would appeal to beauty and fashion addicts everywhere. The complete collection includes six rich, opaque shades with editorial flair and depth, as well as an Underlacquer and an Overlacquer, all formulated to strengthen and fortify nails.
    Over the past few seasons, nails have become more influential, making a serious impact on the fashion runway, and are now viewed as an extension of hair and makeup styling. During the Fall/Winter ‘09 Collections, Doo.Ri, known for her beautiful, draped silhouettes, wanted to reflect the edgy look of her fall collection and chose Beyond Jealous (a blackened blue/green shade), to complete the models’ looks. Rocking-out the "of-the-moment" nail colour is just as important as wearing the "it" pant, jacket or stiletto. Nails have become an essential fashion accessory!
    Nail Trend F/W ‘09 by Jin Soon Choi, visibly M·A·C in form and finish, will be coveted worldwide by fashionable women on a quest for beauty, style and self-expression. This is the perfect marriage between an iconic, cutting-edge makeup brand and a top celebrity nail stylist.

    Hot Mess Monday - Mena Suvari


    Here is Mena Suvari looking like a hot mess. This outfit really confuses me. She looks like she is wearing 3 scarves or something, very raggedy. Her tights are extremely tight, she really could have gone a size up. Her white top is unfortunately too short. I don't think she has the right body type to be rocking leggings and short shirts. I won't even say anything about that face...it's a shame. Poor girl.

    Fabulous Friday - Audrina Patridge


    Happy Friday everyone! This week I have picked Audrina to be the celeb for Fabulous Friday. I think she looks casual and chic in a basic white t-shirt and a pair of tye dyed Divine Rights of Denim jeans paired with platform peep toe pumps. Lovely - for a casual afternoon! I'm not sure if I like her hair dark or golden...thoughts?

    The Makeup Artistry Maverick Collaborates With Three Renowned Artists: Make-Up Art Cosmetics

    This season M·A·C celebrates the idea of the Artist in every shade and stripe…makeup as art form. M·A·C has selected three individuals who exemplify this idea through both the subjects they choose, and the wildly individual styles and colours used to convey them. Bold, heroic, big; giggly, playful, clever; dramatic, original, abstract: Fall ’09 as seen by Richard Phillips, Maira Kalman, and Marilyn Minter. Be inspired!

    FALL ’09 AS SEEN BY RICHARD PHILLIPS, PAINTER
    Using the expert skills of a photo-retoucher, Richard subjected his own painting to a M·A·C makeover with the new eye shadows, blushes and lipsticks. A collection of Eye Shadow quads, Lipsticks, Lipglass, and The Perfect Cheek Blush just leap off the canvas!

    FALL ’09 AS SEEN BY MAIRA KALMAN, ILLUSTRATOR
    Famous for her whimsical visual diaries, Maira Kalman performed a bit of magic with M·A·C's new Technakohl Eye Liners and Eye Shadows, instantly drafting a captivating look at a stranger.
    FALL ’09 AS SEEN BY MARILYN MINTER, PHOTOGRAPHER
    Minter’s erotic imagery zooms in on a succulently wet, red lip, a dappled, sequined eye, or a silverized stiletto splashing in the mud. Pigments in Push the Edge and Copper or Gold Glitter have the power to make anyone feel like they WILL be seen – and desired. That gift for sparkle is one reason Minter was a natural for the high-key glitter pigments in Make-Up

    M·A·C Make-Up Art Cosmetics will be available for a limited time starting August 20, 2009.

    Canada's Next Top Model - Addison Gill



    Addison Gill, Canada’s true next top model, is your average 16 year old high school student from Caledonia a small place tucked away in Ontario, who has been lucky enough to walk some of the prestigious runways. Addison was discovered by Sutherland Models president Ann Sutherland. “I thought she was absolutely beautiful, the type of model who could shoot the biggest campaigns in the world” says Sutherland. Not only has Addison been strutting her stuff down the catwalk, she was also submitted to a model search for V Magazine, and despite a mouth full of braces, she was chosen as the winner. Shortly after her V Magazine shoot, Addison walked the runways of Milan, Paris and New York. She has been booked by Calvin Klein, Valentino and Gianfranco Ferre just to name a few. Addison is on her way to becoming a supermodel. She is explained to be both beauty and brains, with maturity well beyond her age. Could she possibly be the next Coco Rocha? She certainly has potential to be.

    Here are some shots of Addison at work…















    Go Addison! Make Canada proud!

    Kim Kardashian as a Blonde





    So, she really did it this time. I am going to blame it on her break up with Reggie Bush. It doesn't look awful, but she is better as a brunette. That dress looks extremely fug on her though...Hot Mess Monday times two today...
    Kourtney looks great though!
    What do you all think of Kim's new hair?

    Hot Mess Monday - Heidi Montag


    Why is Heidi Montag such an attention wh*re, you ask? Well, maybe it's because she has zero talent and has to strut around town looking like a disco barbie to get people to pay any attention to her. Here is Mrs. Spratt looking like a major moron at the G.I Joe Rise of the Cobra premiere in a sheer sequin top, short shorts (so classy) and Christian Louboutin booties. Usually, Louboutin can do no wrong in my eyes, but these booties make me want hurl. I'm not even going to say anything about her hair and make up because if I have to examine her again the sparkle from her sequins may destroy my eye sight.

    Thanks for coming out, Montag. Try to dress with some class next time.

    Happy Monday...
