Private Blend Bois Marocain by Tom Ford



Morocco is a country known for its vibrant warmth and richness. Its very essence surrounds the senses with earthy hues, sumptuous woods and seductive aromas. At the heart of this complexity is thuya, one of the regions most rare and precious woods. 

Introducing PRIVATE BLEND BOIS MAROCAIN. With the rich essence of the root from the mystical thuya tree, it releases a scent so intense and mysterious it seems to reveal the secrets of the earth. Offering some of the finest and rarest ingredients, this scent possesses nine superbly intensified orpur naturals and a selection of the highest grade raw materials chosen by a team of master perfumers. 

The top notes are a mélange of Madagascan black pepper, cypress and bergamot that provide fresh peaks and sparkle to balance its darkly refined opulence. Baies rose orpur delivers a spiced floral vibrancy, while the smooth heart of the fragrance, thuya, drenches the skin like molten gold. Nutmeg and davana enhance the ambrosial sensuality of the scent. An enduring base blends the textures of different cedar essences: cedar atlas with Indonesian patchouli orpur penetrates the skin and mixes with exotic facets of incense, patchouli and earthy vetiver to leave a lasting impression.

The new scent will be offered in the original PRIVATE BLEND packaging inspired by the dark brown glass colouring of the apothecary bottles used in perfume laboratories. The 50ml flacon is created to be weighty on the hand and has the sleek architectural look of a chess piece. The 250ml decanter is carved with the highest level of craftsmanship.

Private Blend Bois Marocain will be available exclusively in David Jones City stores only from April 18, 2010: 
  • Elizabeth St, Sydney, 
  • Bourke St, Melbourne

Elle Genius Awards


It’s official: Makeup mogul Napoleon Perdis is a genius. 
Australia’s leading makeup artist was accorded the honour in the April issue of American Elle. For the magazine’s fifth annual celebration of beauty’s elite, the 2010 Genius Awards, Perdis was commended for his deft makeup skills and gravity-defying proficiency with powder, concealer and luminescent crèmes. “Since high-def cameras add 10 pounds and 10 years, stars call on Perdis for his instant lift,” says the magazine. “He uses contouring techniques, such as dusting nude blush in the hollow of the cheek, to ‘create an immediate youthful, slimming effect.’” What else does Perdis use to help obscure wrinkles? Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer and Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation. “It turns back the clock in just a few spritzes,” he says in Elle. Each year the magazine applauds in-demand insiders in hair, makeup, and skin care. Napoleon Perdis was among 15 other award-winners, and one of only five makeup artists praised. Bravo!

My Designer Wardrobe



Looking for a fabulous dress for the special upcoming event but can't afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a designer dress? Well, My Designer Wardrobe is your new one-stop shop for designer outfits without the hefty price tags. You can either rent or purchase a dress, and you can do it from the comfort of your own home, or you can go into their store and try before you buy…

We’ve all heard about recession proofing your wardrobe but why not make passive income from your dresses instead?

For anyone who has considered selling your frocks on Ebay/online auctions, save yourself the headache. Brisbane-based fashion experts, Stacey Peake and Michelle Bates are open for business with My Designer Wardrobe Collections, located at 888 Brunswick Street, New Farm.

This ingenious concept store solves two common problems:

1. Wardrobe clutter from hoarding those dresses just in case you may wear them again sometime.

2. The last minute panic of not having a hot dress for that big event before payday.

This leading edge store is designed to make your shopping experience efficient and fabulous and is filled with racks full of current and classic fashion. Think Sass & Bide, Pierucci, Manning Cartell, Willow, Bettina Liano, Wayne Cooper and Alice McCall. For shoppers, its a woman's dream,
with a range of designers, sizes and styles at a fraction of the original price. Its all about access over ownership.

So how does it work? If you have a dress that you haven't worn in a while, take it down to My Designer Wardrobe Collections and every month you will receive a payment into your bank account according to how many times your dress has been rented. The rental amount is worked out on a percentage of the original price, with a loading for current season garments. On average, a $600 dress rent for $99 each time and the owner receives 40% of that fee.

There are no charges to the owner and your dress is guaranteed to be handled with care or you will be compensated.

Everyone with a passion for fashion wants to look their best at important events and functions. My Designer Wardrobe helps you to achieve the latest looks on any budget or make your money back on the dress you love, but hate to see hanging listlessly in your wardrobe.

New Global Ambassadors for Rimmel London





Rimmel London will sign Zooey Deschanel, Solange Knowles and Alejandra Ramos Munoz, all of whom team with Kate Moss, Georgia May Jagger and Coco Rochas as the aspirational ambassadors of Rimmel London, the iconic British cosmetics brand. With their diverse styles, talents and multi-cultural backgrounds, the new faces embody the wonderfully cosmopolitan nature of London, the city that serves as the inspiration for the witty, edgy and streetwise beauty brand.
 

Zooey, Solange and Alejandra each bring a distinct look and personality to Rimmel London cosmetics.  

The star of such films as (500) Days of Summer, Yes Man, The Happening and Elf, Zooey Deschanel is one of Hollywood’s most sought after young actresses. In addition to Zooey’s work on-screen, she is also a talented singer-songwriter, set to release her second album in Spring 2010. A charismatic beauty, Zooey is inspired by her love of old music and vintage fashion and her retro style is reminiscent of a classical movie starlet. Zooey, who was named after the male character in J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey, spent much of her childhood on-location with her actress mother, Mary Jo and her father, Caleb, an Academy Award-nominated cinematographer. She credits her father with instilling in her a keen visual sense and great style. The multi-talented actress will be the face of Rimmel London star products including new Lash Accelerator Mascara, Match Perfection Powder Foundation and Lasting Finish Lipstick, and will appear in its newest campaigns, which will debut in August 2010 worldwide. 

A gifted singer-songwriter, dancer and DJ, Solange Knowles has hit the charts with two solo albums, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams and Solo Star, appeared in several films and co-launched a junior apparel collection, Deréon with her mother and sister, superstar Beyoncé Knowles. She is influenced by a wide range of music genres, including R&B, Reggae, Alternative, and even Country. As a result, she has cultivated a dynamic, edgy personal style and ultra-cool fashion sense that ensures she always sets, and never follows, trends. The multi-faceted artist will represent Rimmel London makeup looks in campaigns which debut in the Fall.  

A rising star of the fashion world, Puerto Rican model Alejandra Ramos Munoz was discovered by Rimmel London when she won a modelling competition sponsored by the brand. A gorgeous, natural, and authentic beauty, Alejandra marries her striking Latina looks with a down-to-earth charm and warm personality. Raised in Isabela, Puerto Rico, Alejandra established herself locally by appearing in fashion shows for such designers as Luis Antonio, Stella Nolasco and Harry Robles. With her stunning runway presence, she captivated the attention of the fashion and beauty world and has appeared on the covers of Caras and Imagen, to name a few. Alejandra will grace Rimmel London campaigns in the Fall.  

Renato Semerari, President of Coty Beauty, comments: “We are delighted that Zooey Deschanel, Solange Knowles and Alejandra Ramos Munoz will be representing Rimmel London, joining the existing portfolio of talented and iconic faces. At a time of extraordinary worldwide growth for the brand, these three strong, successful and uniquely beautiful women will help ensure that Rimmel London’s image continues to be modern and globally relevant.”  

Stephen Mormoris, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, Coty Beauty, adds: “Zooey, Solange and Alejandra each have an individual style and spirit that perfectly reflects the incredible diversity of London and the Rimmel brand. We are confident that women everywhere will identify with, and aspire to, Zooey’s timeless glamour, Solange’s cutting-edge chic and Alejandra’s natural elegance.”  

Of her partnership with Rimmel London, Zooey Deschanel says: “I am thrilled to be working with Rimmel, a brand I have always loved for its edgy, fun and innovative products. It’s such an honour to have been chosen, alongside Solange and Alejandra, to represent the best of London style.”  

Solange Knowles comments: “I have always been passionate about make-up because it allows me to express my personality and style. I’m very excited about representing Rimmel because it’s such a young, vibrant, on-trend brand.”  

Alejandra Ramos Munoz says: “Becoming a face of Rimmel is a fantastic opportunity for me, particularly at the beginning of my career. Kate Moss has always been an amazing inspiration for me and, as a brand ambassador, I will strive to be an aspirational role model for girls and women everywhere.”

Kick Blisters to the Curb!

It’s an all too familiar scene: you start the night out in sexy strappy stilettos that make you look as good as your feel - you end up with sore, tired feet soaking in buckets of ice water in a vain attempt to alleviate the pain and dreaded blisters that you know are going to hurt for days to come. But it’s beauty and fashion over pain right? No.
Unsightly bandages wrapped around your baby toe as it pokes out of your new fancy pair of strappy shoes is not a flattering look, but what’s the alternative to be footloose and fancy free, without the pain? 
Well, in 2010 there’s finally a solution that will make blister woes a problem of the past.

Blistop comes in a handy and convenient palm-size spray can, small enough to fit into your handbag plus the solution dries almost instantly so you can simply spray and go - anywhere, anytime. Never be inconvenienced by blisters again.
