I love nail polish and is super excited whenever I get a new collection releases in my inbox! For Spring 2012, essie pays tribute to the beautiful, ambitious woman of action. “Fortune favors the bold,” says essie brand founder and global creative director Essie Weingarten. “I am so inspired by women who dream big, go with their instincts and always manage to put their best self forward.”
The collection includes 6 shades: navigate her (new growth green), a crewed interest (pretty pursuable peach), olé caliente (spicy scarlet fever), orange, it’s obvious! (headstrong outspoken orange), to buy or not to buy (limitless lilac shimmer) and tour de finance (incandescent fuchsia futures). Cute! The Spring 2012 collection will be available in February 2012 for a suggested retail price of $8.00 per bottle in salons and beauty destinations worldwide.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, did you already get a gift for your loved one yet? I’m a sucker for cutesy stuff and these new Swatch Original Gent Valentine’s Day Watches are pretty damn cute- aren’t they? There are two styles to choose from. Catch My Heart is ruby red and features a small white figure, emerging from a scarlet rose sketched on the dial. Lovely Mine is a pink design. The pink dial is home to a cute character in a rabbit costume, the ears of which join to form a heart shape. Each watch is $60, cute and doesn’t break the bank!

How cool is the new Stella McCartney ad campaign for Summer 2012 featuring Natalia Vodianova?!! The flowers are insane!!! The campaign was shot in London by Mert & Marcus and styled by Stella McCartney. The campaign highlights two looks this season including the ink Paisley print shirt and trousers and the Fitzroy dress with 3-D embroidered edges. The matching sunglasses are sick too!

Blue is one of my favorite colors and dark eyeliner as well, so obviously I love the Chanel Spring/Sumer 2012 Haute Couture Show makeup. Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup created the runway beauty looks, and we all know we’ll go crazy for the nail polish. How pretty is the Sky Line nail color?! Love the name!

I knew MANGO was up to something when Kate Moss showed up at its Fall/Winter 2011 fashion show in Paris and also filmed a video with Terry Richardson for the show. MANGO announced that Kate Moss will be the star of its new Spring/Summer 2012 campaign and of course photographed by Terry Richardson. The styling was done by Géraldine Saglio, while Charlotte Tilbury and Odile Gilbert were responsible for make-up and hair, respectively.
This season, the brand is opting for a graphic contrast between clean and unstructured lines. In counterposition to this fluidity and cleanliness of lines, we can see a clear 60s influence, particularly in the dresses. Lightweight, pleated and gathered fabrics which offer movement and present a fresh, new and feminine proposal for this season. As a contrast to these pure lines, we are introducing a more casual line in which we are bringing together artisanal elements from various ethnicities and blending them with sportswear details to give them a very simple and urban look. Tie-dye, abstract prints and patchwork in indigo and yellow tones with unwashed effects.
Here are two images from the ad campaign and also two behind-the-scenes photos as well. More to come!
Behind-the-scenes with Kate Moss…
