Life Is A Butterfly

  Butterfly show-girls fluttered down the Jean Paul Gaultier catwalk in Paris, as the French designer transformed his haute couture gowns into delicate ethereal creations with silky wings in multicolored hues. The collections effect was both sultry and mystifying. Ms. Von Teese brought electricity with all the intensity of her bright teal ensemble, and we were once again reminded that nobody works a corset like the burlesque star.

2014 is just around the block, NYE is the best, glamorous & lavishing day of the year, you wear only your best, surround yourself with the best people, Remembering the best days of the year, set new year resolutions to be the best you can be. 

The January 2013 issue of Vogue Japan delivers this fun and glamorous editorial titled Party Dolls. Photographed by Ellen von Unwerth.  This editorial inspired me to mix vintage and modern looks. Try a sultry voluptuous 60’s hair style with sexy cat eye, matte kissable lipstick to create a vintage style makeup. Add a modern glam dress, jewel encrusted chandelier earrings and ending with a gladiator strap heel. My New Year go-to color to bring good health, wealth and fortune is electric blue.

Vintage Beauty: Marilyn Monroe

“I think Marilyn is bound to make an almost overwhelming impression on the people who meet her for the first time. It is not that she is pretty, although she is of course almost incredibly pretty, but she radiates, at the same time, unbounded vitality and a kind of unbelievable innocence.”

Vintage Beauty: Brigitte Bardot

The iconic Albanian bombshell in motion!

“The line of her lips forms a childish pout, and at the same time her lips are very kissable…. She turns up her nose at elegant clothes, jewels, girdles, perfumes, makeup, and all artifice. Yet her walk is lascivious and a saint would sell his soul to the devil to watch her dance…
Simone de Beauvoir on Brigitte Bardot
