Are Cara’s brows a thing of the past? Atelier Versace sets the tone!

Yesterday, Donatella Versace kicked off the Paris 2014 Haute Couture shows with her 50’s inspired Collection. I love the combination of the severe, slicked back chignon (created by Guido Palau) and Pat MacGrath’s deep-teal dramatic, winged eye!

Chloé Fall 2014 RTW Lilac eye: Get the Look!

Violet, lilac and dusty pink are back! The threads connecting the Fall 2014 Ready-To-Wear collections, are my favourite childhood colours. We had just moved into our new apartment. I was 10.

Browsing Style.com and the Fall 2014 RTW Chloé...
