INSPIRING #DIORMAKEUPHALLOWEEN LOOK

October 31, 2017  |  Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

For the first time at DIOR, Peter Philips, creative and image director for Dior Makeup imagined a series of playful, extreme makeup looks for Halloween Night.

Bella Hadid plays the part of the wicked muse, inspired from an evening where anything goes…

For Dior, Bella Hadid veils herself in Mystery on Halloween:

The Lips are dark sensuous and extreme, the eyes are sparkling emerald green, accentuated by dense shadows and enhanced by a mask of golden glitter. Peter Philips created a spectacular, mysterious black and gold look.

Black, edgy lips, eyes adorned with intense reds and golden crystals applied around the eyes like a mask… her identically made-up boys. Will you dare to do the same?

Peter Philips invites you to push back the limits of boldness by using Dior Makeup Best sellers in New Ways. #diormakeuphalloween

 

 

ZUHAIR MURAD ~ BRIDAL FALL 2018

October 30, 2017  |  Accessories, Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

A Midwinter’s Night Dream – Zuhair Murad 

Zuhair Murad, Zuhair Murad Bridal 2018 Fall Collection, Zuhair Murad Bridal Gowns, Zuhair Murad Bride, Fall 2018 bridal trends, Perfect Wedding Magazine, Perfect Wedding Blog, Bridal Trends, Pink Wedding Gowns, Blush Wedding Gowns

An aurorae borealis, a quartz crystal or blushing cheeks: pink, the eternal symbol of femininity is celebrated throughout Zuhair Murad’s Bridal Collection 2018. The shade is used in a limited palette, ranging from tender ivory to powdered and muted tones, giving center stage to the house’s savoir-faire and the body it will envelop.

The collection celebrates a tradition both ancient and modernized, and more importantly, the woman is it designed for, equally in love and of her time. Flowers appear in all shapes and sizes throughout the pieces, expressing the same philosophy – worn as a crown, natural and untamed, seemingly out of a Romantic-era engraving, embroided in 3D, or delicate on sheer chiffon like a tattoo on nude skin.

Channeling the timeless elegance of Grace Kelly, the short and bouffant cut Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face or Mia Farrow’s pared down chic in their respective off and on-screen weddings, each design radically rethinks classical codes. Silk chiffon, tears of ruffles and airy lace create a tension between what is made visible and invisible: boleros, capes and veils drape themselves over a bustier, an off-the-shoulder cut, a high slit…this equilibrium reflects a harmony between worlds, cultures and generations.

ELIE SAAB ~ THEATER OF LIGHT

October 23, 2017  |  Accessories, Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

The ELIE SAAB Bridal Fall 2018 Collection presents a regal orchestra of nine silhouettes, timeless gowns that capture the essential elegance of the contemporary bride.

The theatre’s stage is set. Its grand view brings the exquisite details and fine craftsmanship into relief, unveiling ornate yet ethereal beading, delicate appliques, shimmering sequins cascading on soft tulles, layered lace and sculptured satins. Between the sweeping stage and the finer forms, the bride is illuminated, like an apparition in her regal stature.

Arabesques, fine lines or leafy branches take form upon floor-length mermaid gowns or A-line skirts of voluminous tulle. They play upon the structure of the form-fitting bustiers, whether marked by a plunging V-neck, round necklines, or off-the-shoulder styles.

Partial embroidery appears like leaves falling on the skin, adding a figurative dimension to the near-transparency of tulle. It begins the patterned storytelling that cascades downward, all the way to the wedding dress train. This technique, along with the elaborate 3D silk organza and satin flower appliques, express the Maison’s rich heritage of detailed craftsmanship.

The veils, however, capture the true audacity of the collection. Some are whisper-light with accents of the gown’s embroidery; others are crown-like headbands that become a wide braid of fine tulle and sequins at the back of the head, spreading out into a diaphanous single-layer veil. A unique hooded cape—particularly statuesque— features full embroidery in sequins, stones and beads to finish with a gently rounded, majestic train.

The ELIE SAAB Bridal Fall-Winter 2018 collection offers gowns to be seen from afar and in the finest detail, for the bride who owns her moment in the spotlight with presence and poise.

PAOLO SEBASTIAN ~ ONCE UPON A DREAM

October 20, 2017  |  Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

“Disney has always been a source of inspiration for me. Growing up I was always enthralled by the magic of transformation that the stories offered,” – Paul Vasileff.

Adelaide designer Paul Vasileff launched his latest couture collection, inspired by the essence of Disney, Once Upon a Dream – A Disney Inspired Collection by Paolo Sebastian is an homage to the stories and characters that have captured the heart and spirit of generations. The iconic fairy tales are re-envisioned and brought to life through expertly crafted couture.

“To have Disney entrust me with telling their stories through couture is an absolute dream come true.”

Once Upon a Dream follows the timeless narrative of a heroine, who in the quest for happiness is challenged by a wicked evil. However, where there is darkness, there is also light. Through her strength and bravery, light prevails and in true Disney spirit, she lives happily ever after. The iconic Disney scores that have ignited the imaginations of so many have been drawn upon as inspiration for delicate embroideries, featuring lyrics from the classic tales, illustrating designer Paul Vasileff’s dedication to detail in his sixteenth collection.

“It’s been a lot of fun translating the iconic songs into beautiful embroideries,” Vasileff said. French tulle and silk chiffon in tones of petal pink, rose, iridescent starlight, raw umber and ebony are adorned with intricate hand-sewn embroideries of woodland scenes, sweet nightingales and floral motifs, evoking a sense of enchantment synonymous with Disney storytelling.

CHERRY BLOSSOM ROMANCE ~ STYLE SHOOT

Cherry Blossom, Perfect Wedding Magazine, Perfect Wedding Blog, Wedding decor Inspiration, Spring Wedding Decor,

“The flowering of cherry blossom trees are one of the most captivating images you will see across Vancouver. I have always wanted to capture the feminine beauty this delicate & fragile flower represents.

For the table escape, a perfect blend of pastel linens, glass vases and dozens of floating candles were used to create a soft & romantic look. While wooden cross back chairs, wicker place mats, and the bamboo arch brought a natural Japanese representation the cherry blossom tree is mostly native to.

While delicate, the cherry blossom flower is also  symbol of power and feminine dominance. Which is why I felt it was important to use a same-sex bride couple for this shoot. Like the cherry blossom, the femininity & sexuality of two women in love is a beautiful symbol of purity and romance.”

ATELIER PRONOVIAS 2018 SHOW

May 1, 2017  |  Accessories, Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

The Atelier Pronovias 2018 Collectionis a very special new collection, for which I was inspired by a magical wishing well where the bride’s sensuality and radiance is reflected by jewelled and embroidered embellishments. The water is a key element and the liquid movement is evident in the gowns’ various volumes and patterns.

– Hervé Moreau, Pronovias’ Creative Director

Pronovias, Atelier Pronovias 2018, Pronovias Fashion Show, Hervé Moreau, Perfect Wedding Magazine, Perfect Wedding Blog, Barcelona Bridal Trends

PRONOVIAS, the leading bridal fashion firm, delighted more than 2,000 guests at the firm’s catwalk show at the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC) in Barcelona, for the presentation of the Atelier Pronovias 2018 Collection. The firm gathered celebrities from the world of fashion and film, Spanish and international socialites, press and buyers from around the world. The audience enjoyed the fashion show with a unique mise-en-scene, under a theme called “WISH” with a spectacular wishing well at center stage.

Victoria’s Secret angels Romee Strijd, Martha Hunt, and Cindy Bruna along with the international top model Bregje Heinen shined more than ever on the mirrored runway. For yet another year, the mise-en-scene surprised the guests; this time it included a spectacular wishing well, metaphorically referencing the magical movement of water, its fluidity and shine, which is apparent in all the designs of this new collection.

Through the catwalk presentation, guests discovered the latest bridal fashion trends from the Atelier Pronovias 2018 Collection with dress proposals that play with silhouettes and innovative designs that fill the collection with possibilities, from mermaid and flared designs to very full ball gowns. The dresses, crafted in organza, crepe, soft satin and French lace, are finished with white gemstone embroideries that give the collection great sophistication and delicateness. A proposal created from the heart of the Maison, which presents infinite possibilities for sparkling on your wedding day.

“I delved into the mysterious atmosphere and the play on seduction in this collection, which presents the hide/reveal aspect of a masked ball. The sophistication of Stephen Jones’ creations and the masks on some of the looks were also a source of inspiration for creating a poetic gaze”.

Peter Philips adds: “This is a young woman with modernized pre-Raphaelite beauty. It was essential to emphasize her soft luminosity and sensuality”.

COMPLEXION

The complexion is light and pure. Peter Philips explains: To get this ultra luminous and natural Glow effect. I didn’t want to much texture. I needed to keep the fine texture of the skin, so I applied Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer as the base, then Dior Forever Perfect Cushion foundation.  Next I perked up the cheeks with a light rosy cloud of Diorblush no. 756 and 876.

Lastly, I applied touches of Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer no. 001 to obtain a pearly light at strategic points: the brow bone, the bridge of the nose, the Cupid’s bow”.

EYES

Peter Philips stresses that “the eyes are nude with no mascara and pale eyelids unified with Diorshow Mono no. 826 “Backstage” and a line of Diorshow Khol no. 529 beige. A unified base to bring out the play on starry glitter”. He adds: “I created several variations to personalize each girl. The glitter was applied in a “Stardust” shower on the cheekbones swept up towards the temples. But also chose the metallic purity of a single, bigger, more ‘rebel attitude’ star placed on the inner corner of each eye or at the centre of the lower lid.

LIPS

“Lips were smoothed with the new Lip Sugar Scrub, then lightly enhanced with Dior Addict Lacquer Stick no. 550 “Tease”, which I dab in the middle of the lower lip. When you keep application light, its creamy texture and discreet shine give the lips a plumped look. Lips are sensual but keep a very natural effect”.

ELIE SAAB SPRING SUMMER 2017 HAUTE COUTURE

January 30, 2017  |  Accessories, Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

From its great Nile, praised in poetry, literature, music and art, irrigating the imaginations of Arabs for generations, to its people, their ingenuity and preservation of culture, Egypt has been a source of light, inspiration and richness for civilizations; a guardian of Arab memory. For Spring Summer 2017, ELIE SAAB pays tribute to an Arab epoch that left us with a priceless cultural and artistic heritage.

The ELIE SAAB Spring Summer 2017 woman, is a reflection of the golden era and a muse for the creative mind. She is a woman who appreciates artistic excellence, cultural wealth and sophistication: strong yet delicate, elegant and free.

This epoch was also a time when Egyptian and Arab cinema, with its iconic actors and actresses, was at its peak. A beautiful period that saw the effervescence of producers and directors, passionate about the silver screen and this “art-nouveau”, like producer Assia Dagher and directors Henry Barakat, Youssef Chahine and Hassan Al Imam.

Elie Saab, Elie Saab Couture, Elie Saab Haute Couture, Elie Saab Spring Summer 2017 Haute Couture, Perfect Wedding Magazine, Perfect Wedding Blog

“The Birth Of Light” ELIE SAAB’s Spring Summer 2017 Haute Couture particular inspiration, was a scene from the film “I Don’t Sleep”, considered one of the most beautiful of Arabic cinema, where Faten Hamama, also known as the “Lady of the Arabic screen”, arrives with Mariam Fakhr Eddine to a party in a long gown, elegant in its simplicity, embroidered on the shoulders and sparkling with crystals. It is a scene in which time is suspended, allowing but a moment to contemplate her beauty and the strength that lies behind it.

And now, as the ‘stars’ of that era still sparkle in our memories, impacting our present, and the songs of Oum Kalthoum still challenge creation while explaining the meaning of love; that golden age of Arabic cinema and art looks brighter than ever, as the admiration we hold for this illustrious past is not a nostalgic reminiscence at all. It is, on the contrary, a continued appreciation of a period that helped build the culture of entire generations. With this in mind, ELIE SAAB travelled back in time, drawing inspiration from the everlasting pool of talents from that era: to a scene where Leila Mourad’s enchanting voice meets Nour el Hoda’s passion for singing. Where Mohammad Abdel Wahab’s artistic stature converses with Omar Sharif’s charm and allure. Where Hind Rostom and Sabah’s seductive natures flirt with Farid Al Atrash’s sensitivity, and where Shadia’s light-hearted yet mature talent comes across Abdel Halim Hafez’s charisma and romance.

Paying tribute to this woman, ELIE SAAB reveals a sharp and creative take on Oriental patterns and architectural lines that form symbols and star shapes, appearing on long, voluminous or mid-length dresses. Intricate embroidery illustrates palm trees that reflect the height and grace of those in Doumyat city while unforgettable scenes of boats dancing on the Nile recall, in a dream-like haze, the collection’s light, fluid fabrics that are constructed to float upon its breeze.

Embroidery inspired by Arabic calligraphy also covers smooth and transparent fabrics such as tulle, lace and mousseline. And while some silhouettes are soft, with fabric delicately draping around the shoulders, other angular cuts reveal parts of the back and emphasize the beauty of the neck. Accessories merge the modernity of form with the classic appeal of stones. They are a reinterpretation of styles from an epoch where ‘starlets’ wore striking gowns, painted their lips, and embraced their femininity. It is through nuances of grey and shades of blue, white and blush that ELIE SAAB injects light and color into those black and white images that are immortalized in our memories.

And it is his creative take that brings those magical moments of the past back to life. ~

ZUHAIR MURAD SPRING SUMMER 2017 HAUTE COUTURE

January 27, 2017  |  Accessories, Beauty, Blog, Fashion  |  No Comments

We are closing the week with the Runway Report from Zuhair Murad Spring Summer 2017 Haute Couture show, FIRES WALTZ.

A journey to Japan inspired Zuhair Murad’s Couture collection, in particular the spellbinding fireworks the House founder and artistic director
witnessed on the island of Miyajima.

An explosion of coloured light cloaked with the darkest night, then reflected in the shadowy waters below. This is the harmony, the silken thread, running throughout the collection. Delicately re-embroidered Swarovski Crystals become incandescent filaments lighting up a jade taffeta creation sensually enveloping around the body.

The waves lapping the island are transformed into organic draping; knotting and pleating poetically figure the foamy breakers. The colours are natural, only more intense: moss green, fiery red, pink fuchsia, boldly contrasted with consummate skill.

The sky, crackling with Lurex electricity, or in soie perlée, adorns, here a slip dress, there a corseted ball gown.

For a contemporary twist, a nod in the direction of the eighties delivers a more angular structure, with bouffant sleeves, coattails, and DJ details richly decorated with beads.

The coming-together of the natural and the modern – timelessly elegant, opulently contemporary: such is the 2017 couture of Zuhair Murad. ~
