Best Body Wash: Tried and loved NIVEA Touch of Sparkle Cream Oil body wash, $6.49. The calla scent is amazing and the diamond powder leaves skin soft and shimmering (and you know how much Marta loves shimmer!).

Introducing the Romantic Collection for Fall 2009 and the Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009: two new collections showcasing new colours, new attitude and new direction. Inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s gravitation toward surrealism, each palette embraces a bold insouciance and a sexy spontaneity that challenges the archetypal face of beauty with the revolutionary Dolce & Gabbana aesthetic.
Created for the Dolce & Gabbana woman who seeks a look that’s at once disarmingly assertive and simultaneously seductive, The Make Up captures implicit femininity and explicit sensuality, specially designed for the woman who chooses a life of passion, full-on glamour and ultimate luxury. She aspires to perfection and achieves it; takes risks and succeeds.
The Romantic Collection – Fall 2009
Inspired by Surrealism, the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 09 runway collection echoes both revolutionary sensibility and rebellious spirit. Just as the Surrealists eschewed the conventional to embrace the unpredictable and explore the unimaginable, Dolce & Gabbana break the rules both on the runway and with a new collection of Make Up for fall, tracing the fine line between dreams and reality to create an innovative glamour that teases and provokes.
“We worship the surrealists; they pushed the limits-and proved that anything is possible,” says Stefano Gabbana, “With the Romantic Collection, the idea is to break away from the expected to transform beauty, creating a look that is about ultimate fantasy.”
Show: Marc Jacobs Spring 2010
Lead Artist: François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics
Trend: Theatrical Makeup
Inspiration: The look of the Marc Jacobs collection was inspired by the contemporary dancer, Martha Graham: Old-fashioned and theatrical but graceful and precise. At the same time, however, there was a darker side that was shone through: a quality of gothic romance. Ballerinas with a sense of mystery- as if part of them, along with some of their makeup, had been left behind on stage.
Look: Left-over stage makeup. The models weren’t meant to have perfect makeup- rather, they were meant to encompass a “just came off-stage” effect. “Dancers in theater and opera always have white faces, pointed lips and an eye that is drawn outward, not upward-it’s very theatrical, very ballet,” said François Nars. He stressed the importance of the eye for this look, noting that “the shape of the eyeliner is important- it should open the eyes, especially underneath. The slashes of white is something they used to do in the 70s- it brings a 3-dimensional feeling to the makeup.”
Below are some key products and steps for recreating the look:
