2009/2010 Hair & Make-up Trends!

Dsquared² is my favorite for Fall 2009/2010 hair and make-up. You can't go wrong with this center parted soft wavy hair. And who doesn't love a smoky eye? Here, the smoky eye is done in a dark grey shadow, lips are nuetral and cheek pinched blush is applied. Tweeze those brows, add a black eyeliner, mascara, and your ready to go!

Jil Sander's Fall 09 hair style is a soficticated modern version of a 1950's secretary look. The hair has a large side part, which is neatly slicked back into a perfect twisted and pinned bun. The make-up is pale and almost invisible, with the lashes brushed neatly in place.

Chloe: Ok Girls, get the mouse out because BIG Texas hair is back, with those whirls of curls and added volume for days. The make-up is 1980's night time soap inspired, with one eyeshadow color sweeping the lid from lash to brow. However, the shadow, blush and lip color are toned down with lite colors (unlike the bright and heavy makeup of the 80's), and the thick brow is left oh-natural.
For a Fall look, 3.1 Phillip Lim's hair and make-up stylist created a solid colored short bob that outlines the shape of the face. An added heavy bang/fringe compliments this reminiscent flapper cut. The make-up is lite & neutral with a pale shadow, a pink mate lip and a luscious mascara brushed bottom lash.

Todd Lynn Autumn/Winter Collection 2009/10



I'm not sure if we will ever be able to wear these skin fitting "Russian Bond Girl" threads in Dubai's scorching year-round weather...but If I can...I will try! I really love the simplicity of Todd Lynn's Ready-to-Wear over all look. You can't go wrong with all, or black or the combinaiton of the two colors because it's always classic! This collection is clean, modern and the leather capelet is so cute. The skin tight leggings are cut to fit perfectly, and the boots are kick'in! I want those fringe BOOTS!

Kimora Lee wants to come to Dubai!


Baby Phat Fall Colllection/Sexy Glam & Denim Galour!

Baby Phat Spring 2009 Colleciton/Kimora and her two daughters


OK...when you think of Crazy Sexy Cool clothing, you have to think of Baby Phat! Everything about Kimora and what she designs is FABULOUS! I love the colors, the acid wash jeans, and youthfulness of both the Spring/Fall 2009 collection that screams "I AM HERE AND NO ONE CAN STOP ME!" Baby Phat does have stores located in Dubai malls, however there has yet to be a Baby Phat/KLM fashion show for us to see these creation up close and personal. So, my fashion peeps, if Kimora wants to come to Dubai, let us welcome her with open arms! Kimore, if you are listening...we are waiting for YOU to BRING it Girl!

New York meets Japan Flashback!

Going GaGa!



If you Girlz and Boyz don't know about Lady Gaga then you must be from another planet!
Lady Gaga had been crowned the "Lady of Pop" music.
Her style, without saying, joins fashion with music perfectly.
Check out her latest album and listen while you dance all night
in your favorite fashionable threads!
Hope she comes to Dubai Soon...i'll be front row and center!

The Rebellz R Coming?


The "REBELLZ" are girl designers (Phang Ju Nn, 20 and Ng Hui Jean, 21) located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Their style is Rock-n-Roll inspired with a modern edge attached to their clothing. The clothing designs and accessories are cool, sexy, and city chic!
I really like what these girls have added to the world of fashion and hope to be wearing Rebellz soon in Dubai.
Anyone can view their collections at http://www.rebellz.com/

Cheap not cheesy


I was able to put together this outfit for a photo shoot for less than AED50 ($17). I found the dress for 5 dirhams at a warehouse closing, the vest is from Stradivarius (AED 40), the necklace was a gift from my little brother (AED 10), and the head band is a belt save from a 5Th grade pair of pants (free). This shows that cheap clothing and a little imagination together can go a long way to make a great fashionable statement.

John Galliano has outdone himself once again! Is there nothing this man can not envision in fsshion design? Although some may see his work as outrageous or over the top (which his couture collections usually are), Galliano is one extraordinary designer! He is not afraid of being ultra creatively different...and why should he? The jewelry is bulky beautiful and the shoes are killer (which they might really be if you can't walk in them!) LOL.
Listen...You don't have to take this particular Scandinavian winter solstice look as is, however you can take the shimmery crisp colors, fabrics and tailored cuts into mind when trying to incorporate this fashion look into your wardrobe. Being different is not a crime, but it is a force in fashion that can not be reckoned with! May the Force be With YOU!

Limited Edition M.A.C.

Kouture Compact
Hello Kitty Wild Look: "Too Dolly"


Too Dolly Make-up Palette
Hello Kitty Mild Look: "Paradisco"

M.A.C.'s limited-edition Hello Kitty make-up collection is for the "Bold & Beautiful" girl and not for the "faint at heart." I love the way the colors play off one another to create a dramatic but playful effect. My favorite look is the "Too Dolly,"which I will soon show you all how I look with it on. The Kouture Swarovski crystalized compacts are Lux to the max! What girl wouldn't be envied being seen pulling this out of their pocketbook?!


If you really really adore Hello Kitty, you'll love the Kimora Lee Simmons Hello Kitty jewelry collection made out of silver and real diamonds. These pieces and more are available to you at www.simmonsjewelryco.com Ckeck it out.
