Photos from Paris Fashion Week A/W 2009

These are two of the hats that I worked on for Vivienne Westwood Show A/W 2009. Enjoy!

With the grey felt hat (above) the brief was to make it look FU@KED! That's what Dame Vivienne said summed up the feel of these hats. Basically it's supposed to look like you found it at the bottom of a neglected box in the attic.

This hat is made of a wool-mix-crackle blend fabric. It's the same fabric as the coat. The mood of this hat is supposed to be 'pull out of your pocket' ease. Basically it's supposed to be non-fussy and look a bit worn and twisted!

10 beauty products I can't live with out

In no particular order:

1) Enzo Milano curling iron. It gets hot very quickly and it creates a lasting curl in seconds.

2)Tresemme Freeze Hold hairspray. This stuff works in all weather conditions from humid and hot to drizzle foggy London rain. Plus is smells great.

3)Prescriptives Flawless Skin: Total protection with SPF 15 in Y/O Gold. This is the BEST foundation I have used to date. It provides medium to full coverage application but your skin can breathe, not look heavy at all and appear flawless.

4)Nars blush in Taj Mahal. It may look burnt orange in the pan but on my warm medium toned skin it looks like instant health.

5)#217 Mac eyeshadow brush. It is so multipurpose.

6)Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit. This product was originally recommededby my sister who is always on a quest for the best concealer for her under eye area. She rates this kit pretty high. For me I find that it does not crease, look cakey or slip side away. MUST TRY PRODUCT.

7)MAC lipglass in any shade. I love this product as it has long lasting power on my lips and doesn't dry them out.

8)URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION. I know this product is always mentioned by beauty lovers but it's for a reason. This product is the only thing that keeps my eyeshadow on for an extended period of time.

9)Black eyeliner. My favorites is Urban Decay 24/7 in zero. It's dark and creamy but it stays put on my eyelid. What's weird though is that if I don't touch it it won't smudge but if I do touch it, it will smudge. For a great budget eyeliner that stays all day try Revlon Color stay. I turn to this time and again.

10)Mascara. I couldn't write a particular brand as I am always trying new combinations. I love Lash Blast but I find that if I put more then one coat on it smudges. I really love L'Oreal telescopic and voluminous mascara together in Carbon black. AMAZING.
