Who Cuts Your Hair?

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, February 28, 2010, In : Reviews 
To my friends who've asked who does my hair and to random acquaintances who've asked where I had my haircut done, this blog entry is for you:


January 2009 - February 2010
  

I've always had long black one-length hair when I was in kindergarten until my last year in grade school. No wonder after discovering hair dyes and different haircuts, I always grow tired of the look of my hair and maintain a style for only a month or two. Known to my friends as someone whose hair would look differently get-...

The Latest on Models and Weight

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : News 


doutzen_main.jpgThe fashion world gets a lot of flack for using too-skinny models—and now there's talk about making some changes. In New York City last February 11, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (a non-profit trade association) held a panel discussion called "The Beauty of Health: Resizing the Sample Size." Panelists including designer Zac Posen, model Doutzen Kroes (shown, in a recent Victoria's Secret show), and casting agent James Scully shared their experiences working in the industry. Kr...

Real Women Walk the Runway at Marc Jacobs

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : News 


marc_jacobs_fall_2010.jpgMarc Jacobs is like the M Night Shyamalan of New York Fashion Week: His show always includes a surprise twist. This time, he chose to cast mostly unknown models, many of whom had never ever walked a runway. Then, he added two girls to the show who weren't even models at all—just cool chicks he plucked from the streets of New York to walk his famous runway. (We'd like to know which streets those are so we can start hanging out on them and wait for our MJ discovery moment.)

Backstage, hairstyl...

History of New York Fashion Week

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : News 

valentino_1968_main.jpgThere I was last week, getting perked up for yet another season of New York Fashion Week shows, when a segment on how the whole shindig came about came on YouTube. WNYC, an NPR station, provided the history of the bi-annual event -- I thought it would be fun to pass on some of the cool things I learned:

1. NYFW actually started during World War II, as, for the first time, allies of the French were cut off from fashion news due to the occupation of Paris by the Nazis.

2. Publicist and fashion-en...

SJP: Scent And The City

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Celebrities 


To properly welcome SJP NYC into her fragrance portfolio, Sarah Jessica Parker held court in front of a room of editors, bloggers, and twitter enthusiasts this morning. The strawberry/gardenia eau hit counters this week and should draw quite the crowd as Carrie Bradshaw fans brace for the forthcoming Sex and the City sequel and the marketing blitz that will accompany it. “I can’t really compartmentalize this one quite yet,” Parker said of her latest perfume, which is the most whimsical ...

Gray Nails At NY Fashion Week

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Last February 17 at Oscar de la Renta, manicurist Yuna Park applied a totally lust-worthy deep asphalt lacquer to models’ fingertips. “I couldn’t find the right shade so I had to make this one,” Park told the media, dashing any hopes we may have had about getting our hands on a bottle. But all is not lost: Park used a nearly identical grayish-blue varnish the next morning at the L’Wren Scott show. (Even Scott herself was sporting it and reportedly created this version with Lancôme...

Serena Williams Trades In Her Tennis Racket For A Nail File

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 22, 2010, In : Celebrities 


serenaw_main.jpgImagine walking in for a manicure appointment...and having one of the most style-obsessed women in sports ready to do your buff and polish. Serena wrote on her blog that she's enrolled in a 240-hour program to become a certified nail technician just after returning from the Australian Open. She'll spend the year (normally a six week program) getting her certification. She wrote, "No one likes getting their nails done more than I do. As a matter of fact I go every 4 days to get a manicure and ...

Vajacial, Anyone?

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : News 
Have you ever thought, "My life would be so much better if only there were a facial for my crotch"? Me neither, but San Francisco's Stript Wax Bar is introducing the Vajacial. Suggested for women who get Brazilian waxes, the trademarked treatment aims to do for your ladybits what a facial does for your face. "We developed the Vajacial to really address and treat the key needs of anyone who gets waxed," Stript owner Katherine Goldman said in a press release. "Your 'little lady' will thank us!"...

70's Punk Hair Extensions

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 15, 2010, In : Trend Reports 

Colored hair streaks will remain popular through the Fall, and if hair colorist Eva Scrivo has anything to say about it, they’ll be adopted by even the classiest of ladies. There was no Manic Panic or Streekers to be found backstage at Cynthia Rowley last week; instead, Scrivo had come armed with mounds of crimped hair extensions in varying shades of peach, teal, navy, amethyst, and cassis. “I used the straight additives from Wella Professionals Koleston Perfect Special Mix,” Scrivo exp...

R.I.P Alexander McQueen

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, February 11, 2010, In : News 

Shock hit the international fashion world today as news of British designer McQueen's apparent suicide circled the globe, the same day fashion week kicked off in New York.

McQueen, 40, was found dead at his home in west London this morning. Scotland Yard is not treating the death as suspicious, but early reports of a suicide have not been confirmed by police.

"We are devastated and in shock," said Samantha Garrett, the communications director for the Alexander McQueen fashion house.

YouTube Make-up Artist For Lancôme

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, In : News 

Lancôme has signed YouTube makeup-artistry phenom Michelle Phan to be the brand’s official video makeup artist, making it the first luxury brand to have a social media superstar on its roster. Phan, a 22-year-old Tampa, Florida, native, has over 106,407,340 views on her own YouTube channel of makeup tutorials, so it strikes us as a pretty good marketing move to bring her on board. Don’t be shocked if/when other brands follow suit.

Gaga And Cyndi Both Think Pink

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, In : Celebrities 


Last year, I let you in on the well-guarded secret about MAC’s newest Viva Glam campaign stars, and finally, after months of embargoes, I've got the dish on the products they’ll actually be hawking. The "From Our Lips" edition of MAC’s successful charitable franchise, which donates 100 percent of the proceeds generated from the sales of limited-edition products to the MAC AIDS Fund, features two pink lipsticks—Cyndi Lauper’s rose-watermelon hue and Lady Gaga’s bubblegum pink. Both...

Lipstain Marker Pen?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, In : Reviews 
Everyone who has gotten close to my personal beauty kit knows that I'm not a lipstick girl. I'm one of people who just can't stand having color stains on her coffee cups. However, because of my naturally pale lips, I need to add a hint of color. It's been 8 years now since I started using cheek and lip stains on my pucker but it has always been an issue to me the delivery system of the product. I can't afford a change of clothes if ever the product drops on my top! Thank God Covergirl introdu...

Say "Bees!"

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 8, 2010, In : Reviews 

Guess what my current beauty obsession is. Yes that's right, teeth! In my last few days in Los Angeles last year, I noticed my teeth yellowed from too much coffee and soda intake. I took a quick run to Target and decided to try Crest's Advance Whitening Strips. I was amazed how my teeth glowed in photos, in just 7 days! After then, I was hooked on teeth products. The newest one I want to try is Burt's Bees' 99.2 percent natural toothpaste. Available in Multicare and Whitening formulas with or...

D&G Roses Collection

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, February 8, 2010, In : Collection 

One year ago,  Dolce and Gabbana locked the face-painting establishment with their first entry into the beauty game: a line of face, lip, eye, and nail products simply called The Makeup. To mark the first anniversary, they’ll release the Roses Collection this month. Each of the five new pout perfecters has been designed in homage to an antique wild rose that has been cultivated as a modern hybrid and bears a subtle fragrance akin to that of Sicily’s famed floral gardens.
