Beauty Tip – The RED Tape


Perhaps the Givenchy Fall 2014 Collection is not among my favorites. However, I declare their face lift red tape the chicest accessory of the season.

How it was made? Face tapes were layered with red plastic coating, applied on both temples and tied together with a string at the back of the head. Pat McGrath, the makeup artist behind the scenes, notes that this tape—meant to be seen as a fashion accessory, gently pulling models’ faces upward—was very much a “statement of today.”

The Perfect Shoes – Dior Fall 2014


Sporty, robotic, elegant – Raf Simons’ design for Dior Fall 2014 collection is surely a highlight of the season. I’ve always said that a good designer is one who knows how to define a fashion silhouette, to finish it from head to toe. In this regard (and in many others), Raf Simons proves to be the best.
