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

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…

Larissa Hofmann after Just Cavalli

The side slicked hair from the Just Cavalli fall 2014 show translated with surprising ease to the street. With her dark hair and dark, smokey eyes, Larissa Hofmann’s outfit of all black matched it particularly well.

Model portrait: Polish beauty Ola Rudnicka

The beauty look at the Burberry prorsum autumm 2014 show was subtle and soft: flowing, tousled waves and a just a hint of smokey eyeshadow in an autumnal aubergine hue. Polish beauty Ola Rudnicka posed for this portrait just after the show, looking ethereal with her fair eyebrows.

Feeling the pulse of the city from dawn till dusk

There’s a heartbeat to life in the big cities, hitting steadily while time elapses unforgivably, transforming the moments between dawn and dusk into an endless strand of colorful impressions. Duplicating the pulse of the busy streets, the modern muse, the big city girl is not one to get lost in the background: she walks confidently, her days and nights slowly turning into a gorgeous parade…
