Happy 67th Independence Day, Israel.
Let the celebrations begin!

Tonight, after mourning our fallen, the IDF joins the entire people of Israel as we transition from grief to joy. Tonight, we celebrate the miracle of our existence.

Sans Make-up et Sans Retouches

Elle n’a peut-être que 18 ans, mais à l’époque des photos photoshoppées et hyper-retouchées,Bella Hadid force le respect.
Je vous rassure, je ne suis pas accro aux people de la télé-réalité, et ce n’est pas de voir une fille de 18 ans en sous-vêtements qui m’a bluffée…Ce qui m’a séduite, c’est le slogan “No Makeup, No Retouching, Just Me” (Pas de make-up, pas de retouches, juste moi). Sans parler de son corps sublime avec des formes qui nous ramènent à la grande époque des Cindy et Claudia.
Du coup, je m’interroge, assisterait-on à un retour de la tendance « au naturel » ?

She may only be 18 but, in a world of photoshopped and perfected imagery, Bella Hadid has guts.
Bear with me, I’m not on the reality-star-cum-celebrity-children train – and I wasn’t astounded to see an 18 year old in underwear… But the byline “No Makeup, No Retouching, Just Me” kind of got, well, me. And she has a bod – curves and all, reminiscent of the Cindys and Claudias of times past.
It has me wondering, is au naturel trending?

My Brilliant Friend

The other day, I walked into a bookstore and skimmed over the recommended reads. On one book was a note from the store owner that read, “If you give this book a chance, it will change your life.” It seemed like a huge claim for a book I’ve never heard of (I’m a big reader), so of course I had to buy it and read it immediately.
I blazed through the book, My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante, in a few days. Couldn’t — wouldn’t — put it down. 

Take me there....I did and you loved it(smiles)

La reina Letizia estrenó anoche nuevo look, un corte de pelo deudor del tradicional "bob". ¿Quiénes pudieron ser su fuente de inspiración? ¿Qué foto le enseñaría Letizia a su peluquero mientras comentaba "quiero que me dejes igual que ella"? Aquí algunas apuestas. 



A.K.A, the visible panty line.
There is of course VPL the brand that champions it, quite literally

BEAUTY IS SYMMETRY Pia's face is so perfect... I took this photo when she was looking for my 
message in her phone. Perfect symmetry indeed. Naturally beautiful, 
zero surgeries, a refreshing fact in a world of cosmetic enhancement.

I am throwing out this question to girls????

Do you sometimes look at a girl walking down the street and she will be simply dressed and yet so chic it makes you want to dash home quickly and change into a matching outfit or something similar????

Four Bs women should possess or try to: Beauty, Brains, Body, and Balance. 

Let’s face it, men are sight-stimulated.

Top-notch men want a woman with brains.

Here we go again with the sight stimulation. Men want a woman who is in shape and takes care of her body

Finally, the last “B” is balance. Men want someone who is calm, cool, and collected for the most part. Achieving balance means not taking things to extremes.

Toda mulher adora um look todo preto, né? Eu amo!Geralmente o “pretinho básico” é simples, chique, clássico e elegante, mas ele pode ser também ousado, sexy e até bem dramático!

and the look would have been much better with brown or beige shoes....?

Vogue Paris

The April issue of Vogue Paris will be out later this week but, here is an image from a story by Glen Luchford that looks simply beautiful.

Well it’s no secret Matryoshkas you can obviously tell that I loooveee Russian Fashion Designers, and their Russian Fashion Houses. They aim to impress, pouring their hearts into their work, giving the Italian and French Fashion Houses solid competition. Russians are explosive in the fashion world, they may have had a backseat, but the extra time has given these designers a desire to impress.
Yulia Yanina’s collections are known for luxury, she has revived the technique of garnishing quality made creations with embroidery and beading, her designs can be described as “parisian from the fifties”(plus her stuff is hand made!).
Yulia’s career started off with her working as a tailor, soon after she attended Moscow’s Institute of Textile Industry,- and by 1993 Yulia’s brand became so popular she had politicians, celebrities and jet setters lining up to be her cliental. Yulia is a vital contributor to Russia’s fashion industry, and is one of my favourite Russian (Haute Couture) designers, and did I mention she also makes wedding dresses! ;)
The Face Of Yulia Yanina

Many Russians come to Europe to buy designer clothes, what do you offer your clients in terms of novelty and innovation ? What is the value added of Yulia Yanina creative work?
What distinguishes me from others is the atmosphere that I manage to create around my clients. All of them have total faith in me and in my creations. They trust my advice completely, to a point where they allow me to change their image radically. I make them feel beautiful, important and self-confident, women who know what they want. Another of my characteristics which they appreciate is that I am always sincere with them.My clients want to make an impact but, at the same time, they don’t want to wear recognizable clothes. I satisfy their requirements by offering them unique garment that are truly a status symbol.- Yulia Yanina

a little take on Japan-日本,

 In Japanese schools, students put their outdoor shoes in an assigned "shoes box," changing into special indoor shoes called 上履き uwabaki for wearing while inside the school. 

Japan has a highly developed entertainment world composed of thousands of professional actors, singers, idols, comedians, "announcers" (aka newscasters) and タレント tarento, a general term for anyone with a skill worth putting on TV for any reason.


Cosmetic surgeons wielding needles aren’t simply, as one doctor put it, “wrinkle chasers” anymore. With highly evolved perspectives on what truly constitutes a youthful look, doctors are now injecting a host of compounds to lift, mold, and contour. Most visits last no more than an hour, and recovery times are equally swift. It’s enough to make a scalpel seem downright crude.

Face Proportions....exact proportions

A face lift, when done correctly, should:
1. Allow for patient recover with little or no discomfort/pain
2. Not require patient to wear a bandage after the first day.
3. Require only minimal incisions, which should be virtually undetectable, once healed
4. Pose minimal risk.Risks are greatly reduced through the use of an experienced, Board certified surgeon and surgical staff, including a Board certified anesthesiologist.(and done with local anesthesia)
5. Allow patient to wash hair on day 1, walk outside day 2 and be able to drive and resume exercise in a week.*
6. Be long-lasting.
7. Look natural.
8. Eliminate jowls to reveal a perfect neckline and neck.Again, this is the tip off area many doctors don’t spend enough time on. The neckline should be smooth but not look pulled or unnatural.
9. Incorporate fat grafting when needed to address the fat loss that occurs with age.
10. Be performed by a world-renowned surgeon.

plastic surgery (facelift)  is to restore a more youthful face but more important is to have a Dr give your face a natural appearance, not a pulled and stretched tunnel look.

Chic, elegant, sophisticated and modest!

Sheikha Mozah was an absolute vision in her white princess Giambattista Valli dress during three days official visit to Lebanon in 2010. This dramatic white dress was fascinating, feminine and fun. The dress was from the Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear collection, some alteration was made to fit her style as usual. Couture like volume was just perfect and the enchanting.

Weekend Vignette #13
Norman Parkinson, Style Notes, Vicki Archer

Fashion should make life easier.
Style should be an easy start to the day not an unfamiliar pest that nags and won’t leave us alone. Knowing our style means that fashion becomes a true friend not an antagonist.

Style is never about age.
There is no such thing as “dressing your age”. That expression should be expunged forever. Attitude is the only thing that counts.

Style is timeless.
What we wear over the years should not alter greatly once we have found our stride. Updating key pieces and adding current accessories makes essentials the true winners.

Know your colour.

Style should be comfortable.
Comfort means you feel great; feeling great means you look great. If we feel comfortable in our clothes chances are that our confidence is spiking. Win/win.

Style should never overpower the woman.
Remember we wear the clothes, they don’t wear us. Never, ever.

Le Corset!!!!

Whether they have designed clothes, written poetry, composed operas, built public squares, painted for popes, hewn marble, or sailed the fathomless seas, many Italians of genius have placed a premium on achieving an appearance of effortless mastery, or sprezzatura, that is attained only by costly, concentrated effort and unremitting labor. 'In the end,' says Giorgio Armani, 'the most difficult thing to do is the simplest thing.'"
Sprezzatura [nonchalance], so as to conceal all art and make whatever is done or saidappear to be without effort and almost without any thought about it."
