Fashion Spotlight: Sophie Webster

Sophie Webster 1
If you’re looking for some whimsical and fantasy worthy accessories, let me introduce you to Sophia Webster. One word that describes her collection of party-ready shoes and handbags: FUN.  The kind of fun that makes all your other shoes seem boring in comparison.  The kind of shoes that make you ask yourself, “Where have you been all my life?”.   Why wouldn’t you want to throw on a pair of sunset printed sandals or circle stacked heels?
The best part is that each shoe and accessory makes a statement.  Whether it’s an ankle strap, sequin-sprayed sandal with a patent leather bow, or neon-splashed PVC slingbacks, one thing is for sure – these are not for those that take life too seriously.

Beauty Spotlight: RiRi for MAC

Image

Sure, there’s the ongoing media obsession over her relationship with Chris Brown, but that’s balanced out by her Grammy-winning singing career, her new fashion line with ‘River Island’ and, now, a new, groundbreaking deal with MAC Cosmetics.

The first product to launch will be ‘RiRi Woo’ (above), a lipstick inspired by the classic MAC red Ruby Woo – a favourite of Rihanna’s.

Rihanna approached the task with a laser focus. “She wanted RiRi Woo to be slightly more blue-red and retro matte — a matte with moisturizer finish we’d used in a collection years ago and currently only have in one product,” said Balbier (MAC’s senior vice president of global product development). “She was especially adamant that the color be suitable for every skin tone.”

I am super excited to get my hands on this lipstick! However, the dates of the international launch has not be set yet.

I’ll be a keeping an eye on this, I’m sure you guys will too! Am I right ladies?

Meet the Marilyn Monroe of our era…

I’m sure you guys heard the name ‘Dita Von Teese’ somewhere. I mean, I sure did. But I never took the chance to actually know who she is. As far as I concerned she was a lady who made makeup! Only to find out today that, that’s not all that is to her.

Apart from her makeup, she also designs lingerie, is a burlesque dancer, a pin-up model, and a fashion icon!

Image

After watching a LOT of her interviews, I realised how down-to-earth she is. Basically she does her own makeup, hair and outfits for all her shows! When asked about the secret of her skin-care routine, she said, ‘No sun, no cigarettes.’

Image

Her entire life is based on old Hollywood glamour, which I have to admit is extravagant.

She was inspired by starlets like Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, etc. She is all about creating this picture of glamour and creation and creating an image that is larger than life.

Image

Her figure is more of an hourglass shape, which I find absolutely beautiful by all means!

Image

She is never spotted outside her house without her signature red pout,winged eyeliner, and a vintage item.

I have no idea about you guys, but she’s pretty amazing. I think that she’s one of those rare people who don’t belong to 2012, and she deserves more than what she gets as a lady making it in this tough and fake world. Truly inspiring.

True sexiness has many facets. The elements include things like confidence, strength, intelligence, and humor. – Dita Von Teese.
