    We’re now in Paris but back in Milan Primpers, no one knows style (or how to make a ripping ravioli) like the Italians. During our coverage of the OS shows, we’ve noted a whopping amount of trends, but the Brioni show was different. The makeup was kept natural and understated (nothing we haven’t seen before)… more

    I love a big, glitz, over-the-top hair style and thanks to Oscar de la Renta, I’ve been re-inspired to pull one out of my bag of tricks. Now, before you think, “Yaz, I’ve seen your blunt fringe and straight style,” let me tell you, under this fashion pack hair do of mine, I’m Dynasty all… more
