Inside CHANEL Chapter 18 Gabrielle, a Rebel at Heart

In 2017, CHANEL celebrates Gabrielle, the first name of its founder, better known as Coco Chanel. Known for breaking the rules of her time, Gabrielle Chanel transformed her rebellion into an art. This moment of celebration was initiated by Karl Lagerfeld who dedicated a bag to the House’s founder, CHANEL’s GABRIELLE, which he created for the Spring / Summer 2017 collection.

“The hair this season at Ralph Lauren is very on-trend with lustrous, air-dried texture. I’ve started out by prepping the hair with All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner to soften the look, then we’re taking a look at the girls’ natural dried texture and adding a bit of Glow Dry Style Enhancing Blow Dry Oil for soft shine while it dries.” – Guido

“The inspiration for the beauty look was inspired by a deconstructed, urban film noir-type girl,” said Gucci Westman. “A girl that feels very real, approachable, and beautiful.”

To ensure each model had a luminous, radiant complexion, Gucci applied the iconic SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, followed by GenOptics Aura Essence and the NEW R.N.A. Power Eye Cream (launching this month!)

“This season at Tory Burch, both Tory and I were inspired by Katharine Hepburn from the movie “Philadelphia Story”. I’ve prepped the hair with Diamond Oil Shampoo and Conditioner to give it a lot of shine. To me, very clean hair can enhance individual texture. I’ve pulled the hair back into a low ponytail, and added this thick black velvet ribbon from Tory to evoke a romantic, sophisticated, soft, pretty look. I’ve kept the hair at a center part vs. a side part, to give a more girly, feminine touch that very much speaks to the Tory Burch brand.” – Guido

Going Anti-Valentine? Try these looks!

Whether you are happily single or want to follow your own path to the perfect romance, you may be one of us who find Valentine’s day a little too overrated. We are not against this endearing season of love, oh of course not, we just want to share an alternative way of celebrating it. So if anyone asks you what you are up to this Valentine’s day, tell them you will be dressing up in goth punk and having the time of your life. Here are some looks you can try to get yourself some anti-valentine energy:

1. The metallic undereye liner-

Nothing speaks rebellion like metallic shades. Say goodbye to the pinks and reds and get yourself some hard-core girl power. Use the Smashbox full exposure palette or a NYX gold slide on pencil.

2. Smudged black eye-shadow-

Rock your look by putting as much black eye shadow as you like. Smudge it with your fingertips to achieve a ragged look. No, we are not kidding, mix this look with a layer of black lip gloss or a thin layer of a black lipstick. Use the Ardency Inn punker eyes like fire shadow for this goth look.

Prabal Gurung Fall/Winter 2017 With JINsoon

For the Fall/Winter 2017 Prabal Gurung collection, Jin Soon Choi created a “half-dipped” negative space nail art, re-imagining nails that were dipped in paint. The final look is fun and playful, yet still clean and sophisticated.
