  • Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival: Backstage at Australian Fashion Week in Review

    Fri, 26 August 2011 9:40AM

    Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival is kicking about Sydney Town at the moment, Primps, and even though its main aim really is to show off all the spring and summer clothing collections we’ll all be sporting in, oh, a handful of weeks, we PRIMPED chicks are usually spotted backstage perving on the hair and makeup. We are… more

  • RAFW 2011: Top Five Beauty Looks

    Mon, 9 May 2011 10:56AM

    And…that’s a wrap! The show’s over! Nothing to see here! Actually, that’s a lie. There’s plenty to see here, Primpers, because Rosemount Australian Fashion Week 2011 brought us plenty of copyable, fun hair and makeup options that deserve a little bit more attention. Especially these top 5 beauty looks that I wanted to steal for myself… more

  • RAFW 2011: A mix of love and angst at Stolen Girlfriend’s Club

    Fri, 6 May 2011 1:59PM

    Yes, it’s an assumption, but I’m fairly certain you’ve all been in love at some point, Primps. And because some form of heartbreak often follows love and all that it entails, I’m also going to assume you’ve experienced a dose of pain and angst in your life. I know I sure have. Don’t worry, though,… more

  • A snoop inside the mind of Terry Barber, M.A.C’s UK director of makeup artistry

    Fri, 6 May 2011 11:03AM

    RAFW is home to a number of hair and makeup ‘royalty’ right now, Primps. Yep, peeps like Napoleon Perdis, Lance Blanchette, Joh Bailey, Kevin Murphy, Michael Brown and Brad Ngata have all been skipping around backstage (and sometimes even front row), showing off their spiffy beauty talents. One other makeup god currently in town is Terry… more

  • RAFW 2011: Anyone for a spot of tennis?

    Fri, 6 May 2011 10:47AM

    I couldn’t help but giggle when I found out that the inspiration for the hair at White Suede was the phrase ‘anyone for tennis?’ Seriously Primpers, creative geniuses really can pull something out of the most obscure of places, can’t they? Of course, there was more to this story than meets the eye, with the sporty… more

  • Bespoke nail polish

    Thu, 5 May 2011 2:15PM

    Apart from the bang-on-the-money clothes, fashion week is also the place where nail trends and techniques are born. Enter layering. Rather than using a straight-from-the-bottle nail polish, the clever gang at OPI have been busy this week, layering different lacquers to create custom-made shades for some of the shows they’ve been covering. It’s such a… more

  • RAFW 2011: A display of matte black uniform ‘dos at Dion Lee

    Thu, 5 May 2011 1:48PM

    Even though you’re probably aware (and this most certainly is not an English class), the word identical means alike, or similar in every single way. And Dion Lee clearly loves this feeling of likeness and uniformity (and paid attention when he was in school), Primps, because this was the exact feeling captured in his show’s hair. “We… more

  • RAFW 2011: The lipstick shade scoring rave reviews

    Thu, 5 May 2011 12:30PM

    Since shimmying its way onto the catwalk a few seasons ago, the bright orange lipstick has remained a firm favourite of mine (and incidentally, many of you) for the past two or so years. The reason? It looks damn hot, Primpers, and as Liz Kelsh, makeup director for the Yeojin Bae show just proved, its… more



  • RAFW 2011: Sculptural art inspires Bianca Spender

    Thu, 5 May 2011 11:27AM

    It’s always intriguing to step inside a designer’s mind for just a wee moment and discover where all their inspiration hails from, Primps, because generally speaking, they are an extremely creative bunch and their imaginations tend to run more than a little wild. In the case of Bianca Spender and her 2011 RAFW collection show, this… more
