SMALL TALK / PERFECTION OF THE IMPERFECT

posted in: SMALL TALK | 0

I started to write this article a month ago, and just left it in my drafts folder, eventually forgetting about it’s existence. The whole quite unkind ‘scandal’ around Renee Zellweger‘s brand new 2013 face reminded me to finish it though.

Working in fashion for a long time, being hooked up on Hollywood gossips since forever had always raised a bunch of questions in me, and left me feeling all sorts of feelings about the situation. If we look at the fashion world and the famous models it has to offer (let’s leave out Victoria’s angels for now), we see a very wide range of pretty and not so pretty girls. Some became famous for their beauty, some for looking extremely weird, maybe even ugly to some, but they are still rocking the world, they are still models and models are widely considered beautiful. That’s that. Model agencies cast according to the rules of the market, they trade young people for the dominance in certain sectors. Some of these sectors want blond Barbies, some want big noses, unisex and anything thrilling.

Than we have the Hollywood world. A lists, B lists, D lists. Obviously most of the castings are not as much about the looks, as for the model industry, but yes sex sells. Luckily the tendency of being a talented actor/actress is still higher than that of the facial features, thus we end up with so called ‘imperfections’. Body appreciation normally does not exist in Hollywood and when it does, it is only part of the image. Hollywood tries to project beautiful lives, amazing hair, diamonds and perfect marriages.

BEAUTY / CLINIQUE ALL ABOUT EYES CONCEALER REVIEW

posted in: BEAUTY | 0

I wear contacts since forever, and dark circles and puffy eyes are my thing. The good part is that the issue had resolved itself lately for no apparent reason. I was looking for a product that will cover my so cold ‘dark side’, while containing everything to help my puffiness aka. hydrate the hell out of it. Since I am a a regular customer at Clinique, they were my first choice, and remembering that All About Eyes Concentrate was good, I expected All About Eyes Concealer to do the job and hide my circles.

I used it for a couple of months, but I ended up having a very cakey concealer under my eyes, that created some non existing wrinkles and did not hydrate well either. I tried eye creams as a primer, but with no luck. Basically I use it for everything that is not eyes and the truth is I love it’s colour, and I would definitely recommend it for very young ladies out there with zero wrinkle issues, but dark circle problems, but if you are like me continue the search for something lighter.

EVENTS / FASHION WEEK BUDAPEST SS 2015 RECAP

New season in fashion means Toni&Guy Fashion Week Budapest that was merged together with Central European Fashion Days event this year, but stayed true to itself, with the only difference that it was a two day event, giving a chance to more designers to share their S/S 15 collections. Luckily there are enough good designers here in Hungary to fill out the two days of shows, and I would only add a couple to the list to give a full picture of the little world we have here. Unfortunately though I missed some of the shows, and didn’t get much chance to make any nice pics either, but I have collected the catwalk photos below to give you a preview of the event.

budapest toni&guy fashion week review

I will not review everyone, but here is what I think…I was honestly happy to see less prints, because prints were everywhere lately, and seemed like the only solution to Hungarian design, but behold, not anymore. Monochrome was honestly celebrated, which is fine, since black is my love. Napsvgar was very fun and colorful, even though I am allergic to fun stuff at runway shows, that does not come from high-end brands, because it has been a way to hide lack of creativity and shitty quality. Well, not in case of Napsvgar obviously, who stayed true to good quality, especially with her amazing laser cut jackets.

Kata Szegedi was her great self, with a very well recognizable style that is oh so Kata, while evolving with each and every collection, and I was amazed by the last black maxi dress, that will probably be next season’s favourite piece of all Hungarian celebrities. Anda is my favourite. Sorry everyone else, but she is the closest to representing what I would love to wear continuously if it wasn’t for work and stuff. It does not mean I don’t respect or fully love some pieces or full collections of others, its just that she is the closest to my taste. Dori Tomcsanyi was also fantastic as usual, she has the funnest collections that are completely wearable and fashionable at the same time, while never lacking new ideas for each and every new show to come. But, but but..If i had to choose just one item from everything I saw it would be Áeron’s green leather jacket.

MADE IN RUSSIA / VIKA GAZINSKAYA S-S 2015 LOOKBOOK

posted in: FASHION NEWS, MADE IN RUSSIA | 0

All I have is pure love for Vika Gazinskaya. Not only is she way ahead of most Russian designers, her ideas are inspiring and really creative, but she is also super cute and I am stalking her instagram for a while now where she rocks her designs at fashion weeks and does previews of new collections.

Here is the lookbook of her latest Spring Summer 2015 collection, where the key print is paisley ‘pickles’ drawn by Vika herself, and if Persia was France in the 50s, than this is how dresses would look like.

Model: Inna Cernyshova
