FashionLouis Vuitton and His Carousel

This may be the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 line, but these cool subdued tones put me in the mind of a winter wonderland. I am in envy of the guests who were seated around a circular curtain which lifted to expose a stark white carousel with models seated atop the alabaster horses.
 
Laser cut dresses created the look of mammoth eyelet lace made exquisite by the presence of pastel umbrellas, vintage-style flowers and wispy feather details. The tinny soundtrack played the musings of Bjork and the grand finale was none other than the eminent Kate Moss.
 
Did you see those mirror-finish pumps? I’m in love!

BeautyGet Gorgeous with Michelle Phan

If you are interested in beauty and makeup and you haven’t heard of Michelle Phan, well, you can thank me later. This YouTube beauty guru has been long been considered the authority on internet makeup tutorials. With a fantastic range that includes both conceptual and everyday makeup, her videos are respected and referred to regularly in the beauty community. Michelle is the first female YouTuber to reach over a million subscribers, and her video views exceed 361 million! Michelle recently joined the Lancome team and is currently making videos using their fantastic products. 
 
 Being on YouTube almost more than Facebook and being obsessed with all things beauty and makeup, I have following Ms. Phan for quite some time. Let me walk you through a few of my favorite videos, shown below.
 
 
 Ahh, the Purple Disco Tutorial! Not only is this video fantastically edited and easy to follow, Michelle is one of those super talented artists who manages to make purple eyeshadow look somehow subtle and glam. This tutorial gives you step by step instructions on how to achieve a perfectly sparkly and sultry evening eye look. The main reason I love her syle is that Michelle always manages to make her makeup look effortless, regardless of the intensity of the colors. The look is never overdone and always celebrates her features.  
 
 
 Fast and fresh makeup in the morning is an instant confidence booster. Growing up pale and awkward, I quickly discovered that blush and mascara were my friend, and from that a love of cosmetics was born. It is all about enhancing your natural beauty and feeling great! Enjoy this tutorial shown above, which gives you fast tips on how to enhance your look in just 5 minutes! I love that Michelle always mentions the importance of defining your brows. Giving you an instant frame around your face, your eyebrows are one of the most important parts of your face. 
 
 
 Michelle definitely knows how to have some fun with makeup, as shown in the video above. Based on a look from Lady Gaga’s video, Bad Romance, Michelle shows us how to achieve the wide eyed look made famous by the pop sensation. One of several Lady Gaga inspired videos, this tutorial is my favorite for the fun computer generated effects at the end. Receiving over 20 million views, this video is a web classic and has been referenced many times.
 
 Make sure to check out Michelle’s channel. Her sweet demeanor and expert skills will make you an instant fan, trust me!
