Be Lush for Christmas!

Posted by Rachel Wood on November 29th, 2010

Lush(2) Be Lush for Christmas!

How about giving a gift of pampering this festive season? LUSH have some super limited edition holiday products. I admit, the aromas and smells inside a LUSH store can sometimes be a little over powering but the products themselves are good enough to eat. There’s nothing more relaxing than a hot bath after a long day with a LUSH fuzzy, foaming bath bombs. I want to try out the new Fizzbanger, it’s a toffee apple scented bath ball. With so many delicious flavours, the choice’s for yummy relaxation are endless.

I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of those holidays that no matter what country I’ve lived I alway enjoy celebrating. Cranberry, turkey, homemade pumpkin pie and of course good friends it’s just such a perfect way to celebrate all the things that I’m thankful for. What a wonderful year!

I think secretly I’d like to have a superhero outfit and I would love to be a cool anime character, so when I had the opportunity for an anime portrait I couldn’t resist having it done! (This was done at Hyper Japan Exhibition that took place in Brick Lane recently).

Holy Fuck – Red Lights

Posted by Rebekah Roy on November 25th, 2010

I didn’t really like the film Cats & Dogs:The Revenge of Kitty Galore. Why are cats portrayed as stupid and evil? In this Holy Fuck video this cat can drive.

It’s cold outside, so there’s nothing more delightful then having a cup of hot chocolate with friends at Fortnum and Mason.

Early this morning there was a massive and orderly queue outside H&M on Regent Street. It was the launch of the much anticipated Lanvin for H&M line, and the queue actually went all the way down the street and around the corner.

Before and After a Shoot

pr clothes Before and After a Shoot

My job as a stylist requires me to be creative, but it also requires me to be organized! Every shoot involves lots of details and planning. It’s important for fashion students who want to be stylist to know how much prep work is really involved in a shoot. for example these are just some of the clothes from a fashion shoot that need to returned to the PRs!

Spanx for Men

Spanx figleaves Spanx for Men

Spanx are not just for women any more! Women have been wearing them for over a decade, but now if you’re a guy who has a beer gut this top is designed to make you look slimmer by using compression. The shorts also use compressed fabric, contouring the silhouette and adds "dimension" to the figure (I’m not quite sure what dimentions they are refering to)! Spanx can be purchased at Selfridges and Figleaves.

I love these studded Alice Palmer tights. One of the many perks of being her stylist is that I’ve been lucky enough to own a pair since she first showed them on the catwalk in February 2010!

…and now they’re available at ASOS! They’re calling them Ninja Studded Tights, which is a pretty cool name for tights (the collection was called the Batman collection by Alice, that’s pretty cool too!).

FashionMusicStyle eastlondon rain Fashion Shoot   Oh, The Glamour!

Some weeks most of my time is spent doing research and other times it’s running around prepping for shoots. The last few days I’ve had so many shoots and most of them have been outside in the rain! We got really soaked and even had a bit of thunder but fortunately our team was great fun and just got on with the job! Oh, the glamour!

The teacup pig is becoming very popular but they may not be as small as you think. They still grow up to 75lb. The smaller the pig the higher the price!

DiegoDolcini Swarovski Elements Diego Dolcini for Swarovski Elements

I had the pleasure of meeting with Diego Dolcini at the Swarovski Elements event in London. Diego studied at the Faculty of Architecture of the Politecnico di Milano and has a master’s degree in Fashion Design at Domus Academy. He’s done many collaborations:Emilio Pucci, Bulgari, Tom Ford for Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana. Diego has been using Swarovski Crystals for over 15 years and he recently collaborated with Swarovski Elements creating these shoes for the Jawaher exhibition.

Diego’ shoes are strong and sexy. There are 45-style in his new collection including the Swarovski-encrusted evening shoes. The collection was inspired by 1940s films “Casablanca” and “Citizen Kane” and as Diego first studied architecture it’s alway part of his inspiration: the modern architecture of Seattle’s public library and the Baha’i Centre in South Africa.

william and courtney William Tempest wins Emerging Brand award at The Global Fashion Awards 2010 in NYC

I got the text from William that I was hoping for: “Won the award“! William Tempest won the award for “Emerging Brand or Retailer” at The Global Fashion Awards in New York City last night!

In the picture: William Tempest with Courtney Blackman just after winning the award

As his stylist (and head cheerleader!) I’m so proud of him: he’s only shown for 4 seasons and he’s got such momentum going it’s fantastic! He’s already stocked globally at shops including Harrods in London; Boutique 1 in Dubai and Beirut, Al Othman in Kuwait and Wynn Las Vegas in the US; he’s been been featured in so many magazines including Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar and has been worn by Kate Moss, Nicole Sherzinger, Victoria Beckham, Elle MacPherson, Emma Watson, Erin O’Connor – and just the other night Rihanna on X-Factor!

Mascara Addict

Posted by Rachel Wood on November 10th, 2010

z EyeLashes Mascara(1) Mascara AddictToday I learned that mascara has now replaced lipstick as the #1 makeup product that women purchase. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only woman in the world with a mascara obsession. It was chemist TL Williams who created the first mascara for his sister Mabel.. Which later on became the mega cosmetic company Maybelline. I must have about 30 different brands of mascara in my makeup kit and I usually carry 3 different kinds at anyone time in my own personal makeup bag!

Today I have Guerlain, a YSl & a Benefit Badgal shoved in my handbag. I can’t help it, I adore flirty, oversized eyes and it’s so easily achieved with just a few extra strokes of a mascara wand. I won’t even hit the beach or the gym with out a few lashings of a black waterproof mascara around my eyes. Yes, I am a mascara addict but we are a growing number!

Press days often have enticing treats. It’s quite fun as you’re tempted to hang out, stay longer and the press day becomes more of a social event. There is nothing more depressing than attending a press day and you feel you’re disturbing the PR and there’s not a cupcake in sight.

Pressday food cupcakes Food at Press Days!

Fashion Press Week at the Saatchi Gallery naturally had cupcakes and endless cappuccinos and cafe moccas!
