  • 2012 Met Gala: The Beauty Wrap-Up

    Tue, 8 May 2012 12:22PM

    Today is a good day in the world of beauty, Primpettes. And fashion for that matter. This rather chilly Tuesday morning marks one of my favourite red carpet events of the year – the Costume Institute Gala aka the Met Gala. The annual event celebrates the opening of the fashion exhibit at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum… more



  • How to: Do a ’60s-style Ponytail

    Wed, 21 March 2012 10:38AM

    Like many of you, I love Mad Men. But I adore the mad women beside them even more. In particular, I am crazy for the trends they have reintroduced. Think perfect red lips, seductively lined eyes, oval nails and alabaster complexions. Now with the hit series set to return for its fifth season in the… more

  • Make waves in style

    Fri, 15 April 2011 4:00PM

    Primpers, by now, it’s common knowledge that the entire universe loves Mad Men, but the important question is, how much do you love Trudy Campbell? For me, she’s equally as polished and pretty as Joan and Betty D, but sadly her character doesn’t get anywhere near the amount of screen time she deserves. So, to… more

  • Paris Hilton looking rather ladylike: Odd or awesome?

    Mon, 11 April 2011 9:49AM

    I wouldn’t usually put the words Paris Hilton and ladylike in the same sentence, Primps, but Paris has actually given me good reason to do so. And what reason is that? Her get-up at the American Red Cross’ Annual Red Tie Affair over the weekend, that’s what. Let’s move in for the token close-up shot, shall we? She looks… more

    The stunning event that is the Myer Autumn/Winter 2011 Season Launch went down in Melbourne Town on Tuesday night, Primps, and for us online folk, that actually seems like a lifetime ago.

    Mon, 31 January 2011 4:02PM

They’re both so sizzly in their own special way, and today, at the SAG Awards, they hurled themselves into sexy-land with their individual looks. Let’s take a look… First up we have CHRISTINA HENDRICKS and her flaming hair… Goodness me she… more

  • Get an ANTM ‘do (or four to be exact)

    Tue, 5 October 2010 12:34PM

    If you haven’t heard about the awkward mix-up that happened at the finale of Australia’s Next Top Model last week, you officially live under a rock. (Alternatively, you don’t have Foxtel, but it’s been everywhere so really you have no excuse). In my opinion, the epic fail was that this technical issue overshadowed the rest… more

  • Australia’s Next Top Muddle (zing!) and Mad Men stylings.

    Wed, 29 September 2010 8:12AM

    For those who didn’t see the live final of ANTM last night, there was an unfortunate mix up when the winner was announced, and first place was accidentally awarded to a small Kookaburra. Ha ha ha! No it wasn’t, silly. What a silly thing to believe. What actually happened, was SARAH MURDOCH was given the… more

  • A little-known beauty brand that’s absolutely caught my eye

    Thu, 2 September 2010 9:56AM

    Our love of ladylike beauty here at PRIMPED HQ is well documented. Very well documented, Primpers. It’s the theme for our current Look Book (on counter yesterday, have you got it yet?) as well as one of the biggest beauty trends of the season. It’s polished, pretty and perfectly achievable, and I’ve just found a… more
