Gotta give Lady Gaga an “A” for effort, but she seems to lack sex appeal.  Would have loved to see her with a more dramatic look.

 “Very Hollywood”, by Michael Kors



 I am so excited to see Michael Kors and Estée Lauder teaming up. I have always wanted to see a cosmetic line from Kors and think that this is a great partnership.  Of course we all know that this will send Lauder’s sales through the roof.   


 “The Estée Lauder Michael Kors Very Hollywood Color Collection (Kors and Aerin Lauder, the senior vice president and creative director for the Lauder company, are longtime friends) features two looks based on the same philosophy Kors has for his runway beauty: classic with pops of color. “Bel Air Beige” is warm, with shimmery peaches for cheeks and lips, beige and chocolate for the eyes, and an opaque beige nail polish. “Rodeo Pink” (shown above) focuses on that color, at least for lips, cheeks, and nails; the black-and-white shadow duo works for sultry smoky eyes. There’s also a loose shimmer powder in pearly pink for the signature Kors glow. The products are on counters in January, so look for them then!”





Jimmy Choo- PROJECT PEP: You, Your Shoe and 72

In Fashion on November,2009 at 3:40 pm




Jimmy Choo and the Elton John AIDS Foundation have launched the Project PEP collection to support the Simelela Rape Centre.

Jimmy Choo will donate 25% of the net sales from Project PEP to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.  With this funding, the Elton John AIDS Foundation can directly support the pioneering Simelela Rape Centre in Cape Town that was set up in 2005, with the mission to administer victims of abuse with the vital HIV preventative PEP medication (Post Exposure Prophylaxis) and provide the infrastructure for medical, counselling and legal support.

The proceeds raised by Project PEP will enable the clinic to stay open day and night providing 24 hour/7 days a week access to the vital life saving treatment that has to be administered within the first 72 hours of exposure to HIV.

Jimmy Choo is asking you to take part in a new social networking concept which will feature a photo competition to generate awareness of the vital 72 hour time window.

“We are women helping women and we are proud to continue our collaboration with the compelling and urgent initiatives of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and to provide a voice for under-privileged women in South Africa. We are excited to launch this social media campaign which we believe is a fun, light-hearted way to make people aware of a very serious subject.” – Tamara Mellon, Founder & President, Jimmy Choo.

Kandi from RHOA Opens Boutique; TAGS

In Business, Celebrity, Fashion on October,2009 at 3:02 pm

Riding off of her newly resurrected popularity, Kandi from Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, opened a new boutique, Tags, in Smyrna’s West Village.   Alongside Kandi is her good friend, Peaches Chin who will handle the day-to-day management of the business while Kandi focuses on marketing and promo. 


I love the boutique’s atmoshpere with the choice of a black and white decor.  The merchandise is moderately priced and will also cater to men.  Kandi is one of favorites from RHOA along with Lisa and I wish her much success.
