I am taking my blog to the next level and turning it into a blog-zine. Please stay tune for
Everyone loves what Stefano Pilati has done at the helm of iconic fashion house Yves Saint Laurent and, to celebrate the creative director’s brilliance, Colin McDowell invited a very exclusive mix of London’s fashionistas and socialites to enjoy cocktails at The Connaught with the man himself. Mr. Pilati was looking his best as always with his sun streaked locks. The likes of Eva Herzigova, Jade Jagger, Erin O’Connor and Henry Holland came to pay tribute to the man who has taken the Yves Saint Laurent to another level while staying true to the Yves Saint Laurent’s empire. It may have been a tough act to follow but, by adding a little Pilati to YSL, he has recaptured the attention of the world’s most fashionable, making YSL one of the hottest tickets of Paris Fashion Week.
Is the winner of the Peta Proggy Award 2008 for best Cruelty Free Cosmetics. The Launch Party was great partly because of the delish mini cupcakes, oh yeah and the makeup! Brought to you by the people behind Lush!
We were allowed to try all the products, get a free make over and have a cocktail tailor made for your make over. They had five different makeovers to choose from, and I choose the 5th Ave since I missed home so much. Scarlet showed me that I could wear red lipstick, I was sceptical because my dermatologist banned me from lip-gloss, lipstick any thing lippy because of my out breaks of eczema on my face and the corners of my mouth. I was only aloud to wear Avène Cold Cream Lip balm.
My makeup artist for the night was Scarlet who explained that I could use Never to Busy lip gloss and lipsticks because they did not half petroleum oils in them, because that is probably what you are allergic too!
She also recommended Sweet ASA Steam Cream the pitch is your granny would have loved this cream. I was raised by my gran, so I was a believer. I have a new look on life and health and wellness, because half the crap we put onto or into our bodies our grandmother would not touch!
This cream has the simplest, purest products. Made with soothing oats, shea butter and honey, which are steamed together and is fragrance free. Have a look and tell me what your think about my make over!
I am so happy to have found Bikram Yoga again! Even better it’s really close to my office, so I have no excuse not to go and take a class. It is so much better then the gym, and you get the same sweat aspect, as if you went to the gym. In a class you sweat for 90mins and focus on self because there is no time for distractions. I have to say it is very expensive, but worth the time I dedicate to myself.
I love the studio bikramyogasoho.co.uk it is lovely, great energy and you never know who will be next to you in class. Like tonight Robert Downey Jr. decided to pop in and sweat, strain and have a laugh with the rest of us. He was so cool and down to earth eager to take pictures with the rest of the sweaty bodies after class.
Well another fashion season is over. After leaving Paris Fashion week I could have reported on the new trends etc, but there are a million blogs like glam.com where you could find all the up to date news. So I decided to report on designer sightings. It is funny how I always have the luck to meet them in first class on the Euro star. Today on my way back to London I had the pleasure to meet Henry Holland.
In London it is very hard to find a party that is so laid back. With DJ Nikki on the turntables and Wale pleasing the crowd this shindig was the place to be. The Japanese kids got their groove on and the rest of us looked fab. I night well spent, even though it took almost an hour to find this hole in the wall called Naked Beach.
