Victoria Beckahm Graces The Cover of Vogue

Vicky Beckham looks as stylish as always as she appears on the cover of Vogue Australia September 2013. The designer dishes on her husband, David, what its like to Vicky B and her everyday life and her first fashion collection presentation.

“Everyone would file in and act so inscrutable. I’d think, ‘Um, did anyone like it?’ No one would say anything, so I’d gabble to fill the embarrassing silence – even to the Japanese, who didn’t understand a word I was saying.”

Well, despite the silence to begin with Victoria has been given the ultimate praise from celebrities who have chosen to wear her designs. The ten piece line of midi length dresses was fit for businesswomen as well as A-listers and would take the wearers from day to night. From then on she made it clear that she is not going to stop anytime soon presenting one collection after another in New York every season and gaining an extensive clientele.Vogue China Cover June 2013

She also appeared on the cover of Vogue China in August 2013 and scooped The Glamour Women of the Year award in Jyne. She’s launched an e-commerce site with the Icon collection and a new pre-fall 2013 line of handbags. Besides the business she has also got herself the cutest bulldog, called Coco Beckham.

Can this woman do no wrong in my eyes? Yes! But, just look at her! Aah, *swoon* I think the latest glossy covers show her maturity, but she looks elegant.

Spice Girls Reunite (Again!!) For Premiere of “Viva Forever”

Hiya Poutlings!

I know it’s only been a few months since the last Spice Girls renunion at the Olympics, but that doesn’t make me any less excited to see them gathered on stage at the London premiere of their new musical, “Viva Forever”. The show is getting terrible reviews (which only makes me want to see it more!!!), but all the ladies are looking happy and lovely and as beautiful as I remember looking up to them when I was a sprog.

More importantly – WHICH OUTFIT is your favourite?

Spice Girls Reunion... AGAIN!!

I cannot choose between Posh’s slouchy suit or Ginger’s Cinderella gown.

VB & Karl Lagerfeld

Hiya Poutlings!

It’s not everyday that Karl Lagerfeld deems a fashionista worthy of being photographed in Coco Chanel’s iconic former Paris home at 31 Rue Cambon, so it’s really impressive that he chose our favourite Spice Girl, Vicky Beckham over someone like say, Blake Lively, because I thought was his new dress up doll of choice these days.

Is it just me or does Karl Lagerfield need to STOP calling himself a photographer? He really doesn’t have a “photographic eye” – these photos are extraodinary boring even for a fashion shoot done by one of the most famous fashion designers in the world. Karl is simply an icpon because he designs for Chanel and because of his hilariously bitchy and grumpy interviews – not because of his photography!!

I have to hand it to Posh, I mean Vicotoria for her seamless transition from Spice Girl and football WAG into a well respected style icon and designer; they’re aren’t many former pop starts who ever enjoy the same level of high-fashion success.

“First pictures from my ELLE cover shoot with Karl Lagerfeld, a dream come true! X VB

Vicky tweeted these photos this week from a recent shoot for Elle France, where she appears alongside Karl Lagerfield modeling pieces from her new eyewear collection. What she doesn’t model, however is pants, and that is completely understandable – if my legs looked like that, I wouldn’t wear pants either.

Here are some highlights from the Elle France piece:

“Victoria Beckham says French people are “so chic” she sometimes feels like she is from the country. The signer-turned-designer features in the pages of French Elle magazine alongside legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld. The pair are posing at the former home of Coco Chanel, with Victoria gushing about how much the experience meant to her.

“I’m honoured to be here in Paris. I love Paris and the French style, so chic. Sometimes I feel a little French myself” she said.

The star shot the images earlier this year, when she updated her Twitter fans on how much fun she was having. She is seen standing on some stairs next to Karl, with her hair in a demure chignon. She is wearing a black cape with the tiniest of briefs, with her long legs on disply. A pair of high shoe boots finish the look.

In another she is seen in the same shorts, this time with a white shift tucked into them. She is wearing eyeglasses- perhaps from her upcoming range – and appears deep in thought.

“I am thrilled to shoot with Karl. I have so much respect for him so inspiring,” Victoria said. “To shoot in Coco Chanel’s apartment in the clothes of the house of Chanel is really a dream come true.”

Karl is currently the creative director of Chanel and is known for his acid-tongue. It seems he has been charmed by Victoria, as he only has kind words for her.

“Victoria has an innate sense of style. She knows what she likes, and knows what is good for her,” he said.”

Okay, everyone knows, I LOVE VICTORIA… but… SHE FEELS A LITTLE FRENCH???? Should I speak for the French and say “Posh, please.” First she was the very essence, the very archetype of British WAG-dom, and then she eased that look into a more American-ised, laid-back-unfussy California style with English-mod influences, and now, she’s trying to claim she’s got the soul of a French woman?? NO, Posh, you do not!!

Still, I bet she proud to have been Karl Lagerfeld’s “muse” for a brief moment. Maybe Karl will speak to Anna Wintour on Posh’s behalf.

Let’s talk MAKEUP BRUSHES BABY!

Move your tools!

Have you got a favorite brand of makeup brushes?

I have M.A.C, The Body Shop and one stunning set I bought at the Beauty expo by  Creative Glamour.  My sister recently bought me 2 brushes from Palladio (The Makeup Geek uses them) AND a stunning brush from SEPHORA.   My fabulous better half got me a gift voucher from INGLOT.  I’ll definitely try out a brush or two from them. (Cannot wait, thanks babsie)

But the one set I REALLY want is Billy B’s.  Oh I’m sure you’re rolling your eyes thinking, “What is it with Sandy and Billy B?”.  Hey!  Leave me B!  He IS the bestest best of the best!

He would use makeup brushes and anyway cut the bristles according to the way he wanted them.   Guess he figured having brushes specially made for him would be easier at the end of the day.   Makeup artists who have used them only seem to rave about them.

Here are a few of the most talked about makeup brush brands out there…

M.A.C

SONIA KASHUK

BOBBI BROWN

SEPHORA (I have the pink one! hehe)

THE BODY SHOP

ESSENCE OF BEAUTY

POSH

MALLY

ELF

and of course (drumroll)

BILLY B BEAUTY

BTW, which method of foundation application do you use?

Fingers?  (On yourself only I hope)

Foundation brush (Fi’s blog post shocked me once, when people told her they didn’t know what it was.  I use mine daily!)

Stipple brush? 

Sponge? 

A new tool used by some makeup artists is the Kabuki brush.  Initially used as a powder brush, Mario Dedivanovic used it on Kim’s face as a foundation brush.  He says it brings on a whole new flawless effect.  Give it a try and tell me if you agree with him.

So which brand do you use?  Are you happy with it?  I’m happy with what I have, but the collection keeps growing!

Just remember, if you use a makeup sponge, wet it beforehand.  You can wash certain sponges and reuse them, but if you’re going to work on a client, ALWAYS use a new sponge.

Wash your brushes.  Personally I use shampoo!  Shampoo is made to remove grease build-up from your hair.  You must see how it cleans the brushes.  Afterwards I’ll rewash it with Savlon soap.  Any disinfectant soap will do!

MuchLuv♥
