Tyra Banks as Other Super Models

A few days ago, Tyra tweeted some professional pictures of herself portraying Cara Delevinge, Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss.

She described this venture on her Twitter feed as:

“I’ve put my own spin on #NYFW with a  tribute to some of the fiercest #SuperModels ever. Unretouched. Real. Raw.”

Mainly, these looks I believe were achieved with makeup, lots of it – its all the eyebrows – look closer!

As soon as these pictures hit the internet the trolls went on a ‘is this racist/not racist’ tangent, I believe we need to admire her bravery for attempting these. Respect for the fact that these people, fall into the same category as her – SUPER MODELS. I do not believe they were executed excellently but rather they sort of do the trick.  I am also not sure whether it was a good idea but its the thought that counts, right?

To recreate these looks has taken not only talent from a makeup artistry front but rather that from a photographic perspective, the lighting is overall these 3 images not done too badly… apart from the Kate Moss “The Grudge” look a like picture (but let’s be honest the source and inspiration of this picture was from Kate’s heroin chic phase anyway – so bravo Tyra & Co??).

The press release gives the feeling that these 3 images are part of a 15 image series… I’m very curious to see the others and I will be sure to share these with you.

Shoe Porn : Shoes fit for a Princess

Hey Pouters!

Do you have a dream to one day own a pair of Louboutin’s and live happily ever after? Well you better get counting all those coins in your piggy banks!!

Christian Louboutin has unveiled his new interpretation of Cinderella’s glass slipper in celebration of Disney’s re-release of the famous story on DVD and Blu-ray in Autumn in the states (our spring). News of this collaboration was first announced in April.

Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. Her character and her story dictacted the design to me, it was all there in the pages and words of this tale.”

The princess worthy design features heels covered in crystals, two delicate, shimmering butterfly embellishments and naturally, any Louboutin lover would know, his signature red soles.

The slipper is a magic wand of transformation, which cojures confidence, beauty and love. The dream is a major factor in my language of design. There are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after.”

Aw, isn’t that so artsy-fartsy of him to say, he should of added “REMORTGATE YOUR HOMES IF YOU WANT TO WEAR THESE, MWAHAHAHA!” Haha, bad Fi, Now, I am not sure what I was expecting from Louboutin on this project, but I don’t think it was this – however, the shoes are wow! I’d hate to lose one, wouldn’t you?
