For his latest ad campaign Mr. Red Sole used brilliant still life photographer Peter Lippmann to capture the must have shoes for this season. The inspiration was 18th century still life paintings. Each shoe was perfectly placed in the picture to created a balance of the beauty of the still life and lust for the shoes. Each photo was retouched to give the effect of a 18th century painting.
Just amazing !
Well apparently French couturier Christian Lacroix owes his creditors about 14 million dollars. He was forced to file for the French eqivalent of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Tisk Tisk. This recession. A girl can't even buy a $50,000 one of a kind dress from a rich man anymore. Sigh...

Well Maybe Mine
I have a small confession. I am a beauty nut. Over the past few years, I have tried almost every cream, mask, moisturizer and balm on the market (and sadly I've seen a few pesos go down the drain due to products that broke me out or just didn’t work). I completely understand the frustration of trying product after product and the result is a complete letdown, especially if you want that sunkissed glow for the summer.
So this season, before you clamor to the beaches to get that good Doutzen Kroes or Giselle glow, here are a few of my beauty secrets:
Facial Soap: Basis
My skin is really sensitive and I have bouts of acne from time to time. This soap is mild and manages to cleanse the skin without stripping it of every bit of moisture.
Moisturizer: Clinique M Protect SPF 21
I love it1 It’s not too greasy and not too filmy. It provides the adequate amount of UV Protection (SPF 21) you will need to get through the day and won’t dry out your face.
Aftershave Solution: Tend Skin
Price: $ 20
Men & Women can use this to smooth over razor bumps. A bit pricey (if you are under a “recession budget”), but it get’s the job done without too much sting.
Mask: Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Mask
My mama told me to never leave home without it and I don’t. This stuff is gold for ethnic skin. So long blemishes and breakouts, Hello radiant complexion!
Facial Scrub: St. Ive’s Apricot Scrub: Blemish and Blackhead Control
If you go into anyone’s bathroom medicine cabinet, you will see this orange and white tube; they're smart. To keep healthy skin, you must use this twice a week to prevent any breakouts. It’s Perfecto!
Lips: Baxter of California’s Hydro Salve Lip Balm
Keeps lips hydrated and kissable and has a wonderful mojito flavor.

Loza in the Oshogbo dress - a Loza Maleombho original
In my lifetime I have been blessed to meet amazing people who have learned so much from. I believe in surrounding myself with positive people who push you forward and closer to your dreams. I met Loza many years ago when I was in college and had a little retail job. Me and Loza spent many ours days working together, taking about fashion and trying on clothes when we really should have been working lol. I wanted to share with everyone the wonder that is Loza Maléombho. She a amazing woman, Loza is a model, stylist, graduate of the University of the Arts with a degree in animation. And the girl can DRESS. I would wait for her to come in to work just to she what she was wearing lol. I love support my friends in any way I way I can. Loza's latest achievement is Loza Maléombho LLC a fashion label.
"Loza Maléombho LLC New York city based Ready to wear clothing line, founded in 2008. During this time of world's cultural mixes and cultural awareness, the Label offers contemporary dresses to a fashion forward and international woman: a mixture of modern silhouettes with an ethnic and tribal edge in textile."
Now I want everyone to visit her blog and fall in love with her like I did. And please be on the look out for her new collection in the near future.
Yes those are the YSL tribute boots.
Tinsley, Fabiola, Bee, Julia, Vanessa and now we can add Dree Hemingway's name to the list . Dree is rapidly becoming a fixture of the international party scene(which is NOT easy ask Olivia Palermo). Dree is sipping cocktails with other "socials" who usually spend their days shopping for the latest garments and partying in the hottest ventures the world has to offer. Hemingway who is a trained ballet dancer , actress and now model is the latest to penetrate the world of socials. Dree is the great granddaughter of Ernest and daughter of Mariel Hemingway. Dree is quickly making her name is the industry with campaigns from DKNY and Abercrombie & Fitch and editorials for teen Vogue and D magazines. If there was still a socialite rank I think they would like her.
What do you think ?

Here is something special just for our readers. I wanted to share with everyone a short film shot by The Kaiser. The film was shot when Lara Stone came for her first fitting for the Chanel 2010 Cruise collection. The entire film was improvised, it was just Karl, Lara and a unnamed male model and one camera.
And here is a trailor for Chanel 2010 crusie.

This summer, I plan on being very LOUD with my choice of color scheme and eye gazing prints. I'm beginning to unleash my inner Liberace (which has laid latent this past fall/winter/ and semi-spring). These boys are my inspiration.
