    The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are wrapping up in L.A, and it’s been a glorious showcase of style, beauty and acting talent (Bryan Cranston was robbed. ROBBED I tell you!).

  • How to: Create a Classic French Manicure

    Tue, 2 April 2013 6:11PM

    You might remember a little while back we talked about where the French manicure came from. Interestingly it’s American – not French – but the design was specifically created for those looking for a long-lasting and beautiful nail finish that would suit a spectrum of outfit changes – one of my biggest beauty bug-bears.

  • Nail Trend to Watch: Long, Lean Talons

    Wed, 20 March 2013 4:47PM

    A curious thing happened at my local nail bar the other day. When my manicurist asked me what shape I was after, the words “long ovals, please” almost tumbled out of my mouth. I quickly checked myself, however, because in reality I have short (read: sometimes rather stubby) nails. Ones that have been filed and buffed… more

  • New York S/S ’13: Playful Pastels at Peter Som and Rebecca Minkoff

    Sun, 9 September 2012 11:29AM

    Models can wear anything and look amazing. Say, a paper bag. Or yellow eyeshadow. And makeup artists love to throw colours on models that they could never make work on we mere mortals.
