Edie-esque

6 Jun

I think Edie Sedgwick is one of the best beauty inspirations around. Her unique look can be imititated for both daytime and evening purposes. For day, it can be pared down with just a simple slick of lip colour, a smudge of eyeliner in the outer corners of the eyes and a coat of mascara. For the night time look, go the whole hog – flawless skin, intense dark eyes and pale baby pink lips.

Like Louise

30 May


Everyone has their favourite style icon of the silver screen, be it Audrey Hepburn or Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Greta Garbo but my personal favourite is Louise Brooks. I love the styles of the ’20s and I think she looked incredible in her silks and pearls. She seemed to be rarely without a long string of pearls draped around her neck and could often be seen adorned with glistening, ornate gems. She was the perfect combination of edgy and elegant.
