Oh Ombre

Herve Leger reinvents the female form with a sculpted dress in a banded ombre of the most gorgeous shades of hot pink, amethyst and purple. One shoulder is naked; the other a wide band created from slivers of bands in shades of pink. These diagonal bands intersect at the waist with a series of bands placed in the opposite direction, and those bands shade from tones of purple to black at the hem. A black vertical band runs down the left side of the dress, encasing a hidden zipper. It all sounds very complicated but it wonderfully chic.

Anti aging

Meaningful Beauty

Cindy Crawford has associated her beauty, name, and reputation to the “Meaningful Beauty” anti-aging skin care product line. Since Crawford is a natural beauty (who absolutely denies ever getting Botox injections) we have to wonder: does Meaningful Beauty have true meaning?

Meaningful Beauty is based on a formulation developed by French skin care expert, Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh. What is the secret ingredient unearthed by Dr. Sebagh? Rare French melon. Sebagh believes some melons can defend our skin from the breakdown of collagen, which happens with age. Too good to be true? I was pretty sold by the informercial and plan to try this miracle serum right away!

Meaningful Beauty is marketed by TV marketing pros Guthy Renker (home of Proactiv and Youthful Essence) as the “Complete Age Maintenance System.” The line consists of a cleanser, moisturizer, night fluid, eye crème, masque and neck crème. Meaningful Beauty can be ordered as an introductory kit that gets you an automatic shipment every 90 days.

Buy It: Meaningful Beauty
Cost: $29.95 + shipping (90 day supply)

In Accessories, Fashion on December 23, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Keith Haring was one of the first artists to break the barrier between graffiti/ street art and the world of high end art. His creations centered around day glow colors and cartoon like characters along with highly politicized messages, such as “Crack is Wack”.

Patrica Field is the New York stylist from Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Devil Wears Prada’s. Translation: she must be good.
