    Balmain is a favourite here at PRIMPED HQ. Sure, we don’t actually get to wear the clothes (unless we plan on spending $6000 of a jacket. We wish) but we sure can wear the hair. And makeup.

    I’m sorry, I know I should be the one geeing everyone up about all of the amazing trends exploding from the Spring shows, but after only one day at the shows over here in Paris, in my stripy top and beret, chomping on a bread stick, I have to say COME ON, HAIR AND MAKEUP… more
