Laure Heriard Dubreuil, the tres chic founder and CEO of The Webster Miami, lives a pretty charmed fashion life. We got a glimpse at what it's like to be Laure in this exclusive video.
I know, I know: Talking about sunscreen is super boring. But it's a necessary evil, and since I'm starting to notice some mysterious lines and blotches on my face that didn't used to be there, I'm being more careful about using it daily. Mostly because I don't want to look like this after a day in the sun.
Can a cream on your thighs do the same thing as a good long run? Beauty brands have come up with a new way to give you the best of both worlds.
Yesterday, WWD reported that Anamaria Wilson, the fashion features director at Harper’s Bazaar, would be leaving her post at the magazine to join Michael Kors as senior vice president of global corporate communications. Wilson is something of a veteran in the publishing industry, building her career over the past twenty years at such prestigious titles as WWD, W Magazine and, of course, Harper's Bazaar, so her recent move to Kors is somewhat unexpected--and it's definitely a change of pace. But Wilson isn't alone: Several big-name editors have recently made the jump from editorial to brands. NYLON's Faran Krentcil is now at Clarins and Shopbop; New York Mag's Jenny Kang is now at J. Crew; GQ's Sean Hotchkiss is also now at J.Crew; Glamour's Jenny Feldman is now at Amazon; Lucky's Jen Ford is now at Kate Spade; Marie Claire's Taylor Tomasi Hill is now at Moda Operandi; and the list goes on. So what's going on? Why are all these editorial-minded individuals leaving publishing to work for retail brands?
Clarins, the beloved French skincare brand, is upping its presence here in the US by capitalizing on some cool fashion girls--the Courtin-Clarins sist
Contessa Schexnayder is a makeup artist and has been shackled to the beauty industry for over nine years, working for such lines and retailers as Nars, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Blue Mercury, and Space NK. She is a self-proclaimed ingredient know-it-all, and likes long walks on the beach. Now that the new year is here, it’s finally time to make a resolution that is easy to keep: taking care of your skin. After all, who wants to spend 2012 with their face looking like a dehydrated piece of fruit? (And, if you're anything like me, making a declaration to keep your skin lovely is way easier then putting down that second cookie.) This is why I strongly suggest adding a new product to your skin care arsenal--facial oils. Now I know many of you might be thinking “ick.” But I promise this little product is perfect for all skin types, and if you use the right one, many of your skin care concerns can be solved.
It's December, and that means one thing: You can now indulge in all the Christmas music listening that you want, and you are free to abuse glittery eye shadows to your heart's content. It's the holidays! The holiday makeup collections are always our favorites, because of the sheer fantasy of it all. Forget about sedate neutrals--go metallic and smoky and red and fuchsia. And this season's offerings are truly stellar. We picked through all the collections and chose our favorite pieces, which was no easy feat. From the most gorgeous red lipsticks to shimmery face highlighters (and even something "lickable"), click through to see the winter wonderland of makeup available now.
1. Sometimes, Tumblr tumbles. Despite the awesome access the Tumblrs received, including a private party at Donna Karan, breakfast with Nina Garcia, and more, the week's events were reportedly badly organized. 2. Strippers are the new new thing. From go go girls at Rag & Bone's after party to casino hostesses at Karen Walker, topless dancers haven't been this big since Striptease. 3. If you are under 21, you can still DJ an over-21 party. Thanks for the lesson in NY State law, Tavi.
Yesterday afternoon we headed over to Clarins' offices for a preview of Thierry Mugler's new fragrance. What we got was an incredibly in-depth and surprisingly interesting tutorial on all that went into the fragrance, which was apparently a lot of time, money and planning. The execution of the preview itself blew us away. Everything in the room, from the lighting to the cocktails to the liquid inside the perfume bottles, was pink. The hors d'œuvres included caviar and figs, which we would later come to find out out are two of the scent's main ingredients. The name of the fragrance is, um, Womanity. There was a whole lot of waxing philosophical on the inspiration behind this name, which we will spare you. However, we did find it pretty hilarious that Donna Summers, unaware of Mugler's fragrance, is apparently coming out with a song called "Womanity," and the people at at Clarins/Thierry Mugler are desperately trying to work out some kind of collaboration.
