Chanel Autumn/Winter 10 Make Up


I was so excited yesterday because I managed to get my hands on the new Chanel nail colours 1 of which is already sold out!  I missed out on the best seller Nouvelle Vague last season because the nail polishes sell so quickly they are must have items for fashinistas.  Having the 'in' nail colour is a way of wearing a fashionable item without the designer price tag and it helps that you can say you are wearing Chanel on your nails!  

My favourite is the Paradoxal which is perfect for next season - it is a purply grey depending on the light and an instant way of updating a winter outfit.  The second colour is Jade Rose - this is a fleshy tone with a bit of shimmer; excellent way of elongating fingers.  There are more limited items in the new collection one being a nude eye liner to wear on the inner of the eye which I also got as it is less harsh than using a white.


Sorry for the poor photography!

I want to get some more items from the collection but I will wait until duty free tomorrow in the airport so I can splurge on more things than I actually need!

Amba Hudson-Skye Model Extraordinaire

Swimsuit by Melissa Odabash

If you have been watching Britain's Next Top Model on Living you would be familiar with a fabulous girl called Amba.  Amba is in fact one of my very good friends so I thought as she got UNFAIRLY evicted today I would reflect upon her time on BNTM and some of the shoots I have worked with her on (i.e. exploit her whilst she is still a bit famous!)

I do love the judges on BNTM but they made a comment about Amba not being able to use her body, please look at the photos below and just see how silly that sounds?!









Above are a collection of photograph courtesy of Living Well Tv and my own personal styling and photographic work.  Now not to blow my own trumpet but I like to think I contributed to her success - she will probably back me up on this...haha.  Amba is one of the most gorgeous girls and speaking from first hand experience a fantastic and professional model and I really hope BNTM will help propel her career.  I am so proud of you Doll...xx

Jessica Biel

Wearing Giambattista Valli, Neil Lane Jewellery and Tiffany Clutch

Recently in the media many celebrities have been out in full force promoting their films at photo calls and premiers galore; but I am so glad because I can finally say that I love Jessica Biel; her style, beauty and especially how fabulous she has been looking recently.

Wearing Vionnet

In terms of make-up she has the ability to pull of natural make up with a glamourous look, its rather refreshing to see this instead of the usual huge amounts on make-up you see caked on people at these events.  With nude lips and very natural eyes it just all works so well together.

Wearing Giambattista Valli and Pierre Hardy Shoes

Her style has definitely improved; she has been wearing a lot of Giambattista Valli which I find has really been working for her, the outfits give a sense on Parisian femininity, my favourite being the red sheer dress worn to the London premier of the A-Team.  Having the dress sheer gives an understated sexiness with her being covered, without being covered.  If you get my meaning...


Finally, I am absolutely loving her hair.  She has finally moved away for the bleach blonde and chocolate brown and settled for a more natural light brown.  The ends and front are lightly dipped dyed in a dark blonde, which helps really softens the face and I love in this particular picture (above) how her hair it has been styled into a wavy tousled look.  Jessica is definitely my style crush!

Sketchbook Magazine Finale Event @ Kingly Court

These are some of the images that I took at the Sketchbook Magazine Finale Event.  I made a special commute on sunday afternoon so I could be at the event and it was well worth it.  The space at Kingly Court packed up very quickly and soon the table of beverages and especially the Ben's Cookies were disappearing rapidly.  This event was really great for all the artists, stylists, photographers who had collaborated within the space during the 2 weeks to come together to appreciate all the work.  A silent auction took place with all the fabulous artwork being sold for the charity The Princes Trust, and with a live band and some great people the party went on till late.
