5 glowing skin beauty looks to try this summer

Summer days are never quite the same, some begging for barely there makeup looks to go hand in hand with a series of laid-back activities, others practically imploring for a healthy, glowing complexion and long hours spent outdoors. Pretty beyond doubt, the glowing skin as a spring 2014 make-up trend, serves as foundation for a myriad of gorgeous looks. From the fresh and natural, to…

Don’t mess with this Gang Star girl

A heavy metal tee casually peeping out from under a cutaway Versace showstopper. Satin jogging pants slung low to reveal hip bones and a hi-cut bodysuit. Backwards caps, fingerless gloves, graffiti prints and biker jackets, all styled by June Nakamoto with the ’90s references they imply and the luxurious overtones the spring 2014 fashion trends implore. Perhaps we most think of Benjamin Kanarek as excelling…

Lingerie & birds of prey: the sexiest styling you’ll see today

I love words, but Bambi is erotic minimalism. It’s a short story anthology told only in pictures. It’s what a magazine looks like when you remove all the clutter and keep only the good bits. And how many magazines can claim to do that? But that’s not to say that the visuals themselves are minimalist. They’re delivered cleanly, without distraction, without explanation, but as for…

How to: Alice McCall’s grunge-glitter beauty look

Mixing two opposing elements is something that’s commonly done in fashion. These types of combinations usually result to looks that become notable for their uniqueness. For the Alice McCall spring / summer 2015 show at Australian fashion week, a touch of grunge was mixed with glittery shadow to create a one of a kind beauty look. MAC’s Victoria Baron is the woman behind this look…

A day off in another decade

Somehow the elements of fashion’s neo-punk and the streets of Sydney just gel well together. A relaxed, too-cool-to-care vibe permeates both: the unlaced Doc Martens and clashes of prints in Blake Sutherland styling, and the arcades and streets chosen by photographer Aimee Stoddart make for an editorial that could be the 1990s or could be the now.

How to: the dark Parisian beauty look at Aurelio Costarella

There’s something about Parisian beauty that draws us in. Whether it’s the elegance, the style of the confidence, Paris has always been a source of inspiration in fashion. For the Aurelio Costarella spring / summer 2015 show at Australian Fashion Week, we were given a bit of Paris through a beauty look that’s part gothic romance and part archetypal Parisian. The man behind this look…

Style inspiration: Amelia Earhart meets modern adventurer

Some of us are adventurers, always itching for the rush of that which is unexpected and new. Settle too long in our nests and our souls settle too; not contented but quietly defeated – wings clipped, calls from across the oceans getting louder as the days go by. Maxime Cardol’s shoot Fly with Me is for the girl who loves to take flight. Styled by…

The steady softness of horses

Horses are salt-soaked muscles with rising veins, iron and leather and pounding hooves, deep chests harnessed in surrender and restraint. At other times they’re the gentle sum of wide, quiet eyes and soft feathery manes, the nudge of a wet nose and the eagerness for company. It’s no wonder we can equate the noble creature equally to fetish or to femininity, as does the styling…
