OMG I’m getting some serious feels for NARS‘ latest campaign featuring Bella Hadid and Justin Gossman. Her makeup, his jewelry and overall vibes are goals — I literally want bangs and I am totally feeling her Joan Jett vibe. And totally into Justin Gossman channeling his inner Jim Morrison. Shot by NARS Founder & Creative Director, François Nars, the campaign was inspired by 1970’s rock and roll. The duo are the campaign models for NARS Cosmetics’ Fall 2017 collection and the imagery was all over the launch party for NARS new POWERMATTE Lip Pigments. These lippies don’t launch until July so here’s a sneak peek!
These are NARS’ first true liquid matte, and features full coverage, high-impact lipcolor in a range of 20 shades. I love the wand, it’s not too fluffy or cushiony so I feel like I have control over it since you want precision when it comes to this formula. It’s long lasting and flexible to apply and then dries but is still comfortable to wear.
Nature: the annoying sound of bird you want to catch chirping and wet grass ruining your perfect pet-icure. Unfortunately for me, Daddy Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t agree with moi and holds the more common opinion that nature is beautiful.
On Tuesday in Paris, Daddy Karl Lagerfeld presented the spring couture collection dedicated to nature. Environmental sustainability is a reoccurring theme for Daddy; the Chanel spring 2013 presentation featured wind turbines and solar panels. Returning to this homage, this year, the Grand Palais featured a two-story wooden structure surrounded by a garden, made from real grass. No birds or small woodland creatures in sight though.
With hair resembling Princess Leia (aka the “Chanel croissant,” coined by hairstylist Sam McKnight) and cat-eye makeup, muse Kendall Jenner led the mod squad down the catwalk. The girl gang included Gigi Hadid wearing a in a gold column dress and cape, Bella Hadid with a loosely tied belt bag around her waist, Lindsey Wixson in silver tweed with voluminous capped sleeves, and other non-muse models. Per usual, Daddy’s male muse Baptiste Giabiconi closed the runway in a golden tweed jacket and patchwork trousers. At the end of the show, the wooden slats of the house opened revealing a gaggle of models and Daddy Lagerfeld, who emerged holding hands with a Chanel bride (My new mommy?).
Every look featured the same shoe silhouette in a variety of colors: round-toe cork wedge with a curved heel. Tying in (literally) the eco-friendly theme, fabrics were embroidered with wood shavings, small tiles or patterns of bees, birds and flowers. The common silhouette tying the collection together was long, lean skirts, cut mid-shin and worn with a rounded sleeve jackets or capes.
While I was not allowed front row out of fear I’d sunbathe in the grass, Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Lily Collins and Jemima Kirke were front row guests at the Chanel Couture Fall 2015 show. Also, stirring up rumors of my love interest was Leo, Cara Delevingne’s pup who sat obediently in the mod’s lap.
P.S – While I wasn’t front row, I was there in spirit and my portrait can be spotted as a picture inside Daddy’s tiepin.
Last night was something out of a dream. I joined COVERGIRL for the 2nd annual Harper’s Bazzar Icons event at the Plaza Hotel. Hosted by Carine Roitfeld and Jean-Paul Goude at the Plaza Hotel, the evening honored all of the icons featured in the September issue.
My evening began upstairs at The Plaza at the Icon’s pre-party where COVERGIRL glammed up guests. We then headed downstairs to the ballroom for the cocktail party which included an imaginative short video featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the Icon’s photoshoot.
Rumors before the party had circulated that Katy Perry would be performing at the event, which all proved to be true. Not only was she included in the spread, she’s also on the cover of the September issue.
Coming out as fall, or rather a ballgown full of leaves complete with a head-dress (which she took off after the first few songs), she did an incredible set of all her top hits. It was an incredible performance and evening of fashion, music and epic beauty. I’ve literally never seen so many beautiful people in one room. I also could not stop starring at the beauty that is Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid. The next generation of icons were all in tow.
Be sure to pick up the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar to see the full Icons spread. The masterful Carine Roitfeld and Jean-Paul Goude collaborate to transform today’s icons into history legends.
