There were few who anticipated a fashion triumph, but, even allowing for the limited expectations, Rihanna’s collection for River Island brought forth in London, a horror show. “The clothes were hideous and without an ounce of panache or style between them.”

Sports Illustrated’s ‘Racist’ Photos Incite Debate

The newest edition of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue is getting a lot of buzz for the wrong reasons this week, with critics charging that the global pictorials are racist and reinforce bad stereotypes.


This year the heralded swimsuit issue decided on a seven continents theme, with its bikini-clad models posing in countries around the world. The problem for some, however, is who the models were posed with.

Instead of sticking to exotic backdrops, some of the models are featured standing next to people allegedly representing the various countries–an editorial decision that makes the “native people” tantamount to exotic props.

HOT Make up trends and tips ! Take a look!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 16, 2013 by giltedgedfashion

This season’s hottest make up trends… look flawless for spring !

Like Us:


Focus Point: The Lower Lash Line

Diane von Furstenberg
Born from the overarching Nineties trend spanning both fashion and beauty, make-up artists seemed inexplicably drawn to the lower lash line. Grungy liner at Lanvin, Diane von Furstenberg, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Christopher Kane was smudged beneath the eyes, whilst the only pop of colour at Stella McCartney was a flash of green on the water line. Meanwhile at Fendi, coloured fabric strips were placed on the lower lash line for an arresting catwalk look.


Attention-Grabbing Eyes

It was all about the eyes for spring/summer 2013, with jewelled lids at Dior, pink mascara at Donna Karan, and Space Age silver at Chanel. Metallic shadow reigned at Versace, Giorgio Armani and Gucci, whilst at Topshop Unique and Clements Ribeiro, a wash of bold colour on the lids lent a youthful prettiness.


Enhanced Minimalism

Unlike last spring, where the fewest possible products were used to create a genuine “natural” look, this season’s minimalism is all about a flawless finish. Skin was prepped to perfection, whilst a little clever contouring, a subtle curl of the lashes or a flush of pink on the cheeks gave the look an added dimension which set it apart from the average “no

make-up” look.


Colour Pop

From bursts of fuchsia on the lips at Giles and Dries Van Noten to indigo, lime and magenta eyes at Altuzarra, Michael Kors and Donna Karan respectively, a vibrant jolt of colour was emphasised even further by an otherwise stark beauty look in each case.



Marc Jacobs
There was all-out Sixties beauty – complete with filled-in brows, nude lips and doe eyes – at Marc Jacobs, but whether it was the banana-shaped creases in the eye socket at Michael Kors, the symphony of pastels at Louis Vuitton or the mega lashes at Moschino, that most swinging of decades made its mark across all four fashion weeks.


Fluttery Lashes

Full, feminine, fluttery – and quite openly faux – lashes were on show at Versace, Gucci, Giorgio Armani and Moschino, providing an antidote to the grungier, Nineties beauty elsewhere.


Matte Lips

Burberry Prorsum
Whether it’s Burberry’s velvety scarlet, Missoni’s bold coral or Giles’ vibrant fuchsia, the only way to wear bright colour on the lips is if it’s matte.


Colour Focus: Pink

Donna Karan
Pink, in all its permutations, certainly made its mark on the spring/summer 2013 catwalks. Magenta coated the lids and lashes at Donna Karan, fuchsia made its way onto lips at Giles and Dries Van Noten and bubblegum pink graced the cheeks, lids and lips at Topshop Unique. Meanwhile cheeks were flushed with pretty rose shades at Bottega Veneta and Marni, whilst girlish shell pink was the choice for lips at Chanel.
