The “Natural Look” is OUT and Bold/Gold is IN this Spring/Summer according to make-up experts at British Vogue (BV).   Metallics, even Gold Leaf is what you will see at your make-up counter this year.  Everyone is doing it from MAC to Dsquared2, so don’t be the last one on your block caught without it!  As seen on the runway,  BV shows 12 examples of this hot new trend in make-up.  Another notable trend in make-up this year appears to be the “invisible brow”!  What do you think?  Love it.  Hate it.  We’d love to hear from you.

Burlesque – The Movie

Like the poster says “It Takes A Legend To Make A Star”.  In the new movie Burlesque, legendary Diva Cher shows us how it’s done.  Cher stars opposite Christina Aguilera in the Sony blockbuster Burlesque, which opened worldwide on November 24, 2010.  The story is a simple one.  Small town girl comes to the big city and wants to become a singer.  What’s extraordinary about this film is the enormous talent of the two stars.  Cher, the ultimate Diva, has been belting out songs to adoring fans for years.  Beautiful, bold and stylish Cher set the standard for female stage performers and continues to entertain us with her ageless sex appeal.  Christina Aguilera has also proven herself to be a consummate performer, her songs rising to the top of the music charts for the last several years.

Reminiscent of Liza Minelli and Joel Grey in Cabaret, the music, choreography, dance numbers, costume changes and lingerie alone in the film Burlesque should be worth the price of admission.  This movie looks like there is something for everyone.  I for one can’t wait.

Posen Lights Up Paris Fashion Week

DESIGNER:  ZAC POSEN

Paris, September 30, 2010
By: Cheryl Maxie

This week, Paris “The City of Lights” rolled out the red carpet for fashion royalty as Women’s Wear designers presented their Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collections. Zac Posen’s collection this year is true to his reputation for fun, sexy clothing that appeals to daring youth and the occasional movie starlet. Zac Posen debuted his first collection at the New York Fashion Week in 2002. A native New Yorker, Posen had been nurturing his creative evolution since childhood by making clothing for his friends. Posen went on to study at St. Ann’s School for the Arts in Brooklyn followed by taking pattern making at Parson’s school of design. In 1999 he attended Central Saint Martins School in London to study Womenswear. After his return to the states in 2001, he open a small boutique in New York and started his own label and company called Outspoke. By 2002 he had already captured the attention of film stars Claire Danes and Natalie Portman. “Zac’s clothes are classical and elegant but also made for young people,” Portman told People. Fashion critics raved about both his collection and his potential bright future with the New York Times announcing: “A Star is Born”. Another boost to his already bright future was catching the attention of music and business mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, who owns a fashion line himself, recognized Zac’s talent and marketability, which resulted in Mr. Combs making a substantial financial investment in Zac’s company.

Posen’s collection this year clearly displays his abilities in both fashion and costume design. Many of the pieces in this collection are more art than clothing in its tradition sense. Posen’s use of feather accents and bold color are at times more suited for a stage performer. But there are also pieces in the collection that any woman (who wants to be noticed) could wear. There is something for everyone in Zac’s world and anyone can be beautiful in a Posen garment.
