MAC Cosmetics new fall collection is dedicated to the work of the late illustrator Antonio Lopez and they have enlisted the help of the ever fabulous Jerry Hall, Pat Cleveland and Marisa Berenson’s to front the campaign.
Antonio launched all three models careers and the limited-edition make-up bag, mirror (which I’m lusting after!), tote and make-up compacts all printed with his vibrant watercolour illustrations. I adore these eye, lip and face palettes which come in the striking violet, teal, fuchsia and gold which really capture the magic of the 70’s and each one bears the face of one of his model muses. Whatever about the makeup, I want these just for the packaging!
James Gager, senior vice president and group creative director for MAC said… “…we felt this was the right moment to reintroduce Antonio Lopez’s work to a wider audience, and the world to these women, who are still iconic and look really fantastic. They are steeped in an age that we are all intrigued by.”
The new MAC Antonio Lopez collection is available from September 2013 from http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk.
The W Magazine Anniversary Issue – Nov 2012 will have 4 different covers, each featuring a top Hollywood actress who will help recreate the fashion decades that W has covered from the 1970′s to the 2000′s.
Actress Keira Knightley portrays 2000′s, Scarlett Johansson the 90′s, Mia Wasikowska is 80′s and Rooney Mara the 70′s.
They’re each wearing designs from top international fashion houses:
Keira is wearing Chanel braided tweed jacket. Scarlett wears a Dolce & Gabbana silk lace dress and silk and lace bodysuit. Mia is wearing Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière wool jacquard bustier and Rooney wears Prada silk and wool coat and dress, embellished cotton poplin shirt and an Albertus Swanepoel hat.
W Magazine always do something a little more out there when they do celebrity shoots and I love the make-up in all these shots. My favourite is definitely Keira though. She looks completely different and so striking! The short peroxide hair, the strong brows, the contouring on her face that really highlights her fabulous bone structure and the lip colour… it’s very Hollywood icon but with a modern twist and she looks amazing.

I always look forward to seeing what celebrity MAC collaborates with next and this Autumn I’m even more excited because their new collection, which is launched tomorrow, features the iconic Miss Monroe.
The Marilyn Monroe MAC Collection consists of false lashes, mascara, liquid eye liner, liquid brow marker, a brow grooming tool, four eye shadow shades, two kohl eye pencil shades, five shades of lipstick, two Dazzleglass shades, three lip pencil shades, two shades of blush, beauty powder and five shades of nail lacquer. If you’ve always wanted to try the Marilyn look or the red lip she was so famous for then there’s no better time to try it out and just in time for the party season that’s creeping up fast! The collection is beautifully designed in black packaging featuring shots of Marilyn from The Black Sitting, her 1956 session with photographer Milton Greene.
I will definitely be getting my hands on some of these pieces, even just to have and keep.
So the final of Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model 2012 was on last night and Letitia was crowned winner. I didn’t really watch it as religiously this year as I have in previous years but I do think they had a great line up of girls and some stunners including Cork girl Lisa Madden who made it to the last 4.
I have to say I get quite bored of the fighting and bitching that goes on between the girls although I know that’s a big part of the show in terms of getting viewers. My favourite part each week is the styling and make-up that they girls go through and in particular the episode where they get their major transformation. I love seeing how they change their look completely with a haircut or colour.
So what do you think, did they pick the right winner?
Pictures of the June Issue of Vogue have been released and it features a stunning shoot of Versace-clad Olympic goddess Kate Moss.
I really love these images shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott… the colours are amazing and she just looks wow! Killer red lips, glowing skin and those cheekbones! The glossy red lip is everywhere at the moment and Miss Moss certainly knows how to wear it. The hair and make-up has a slightly vintage feel but the overall look has a real rock star edge. LOVE!
