Just got back from schimlingling at the launch of Only One at The House of Fashion in Loop Street. It’s a very cool concept in that it’s an invitation only fashion club. This means you have to get invited or fill out an application form to join. But once you’re in, you get to book shopping appointments with a personal stylist who’ll help you browse a zillion unbelievably beautiful rokkies sourced from overseas. They’re all gorgeous, stand alone stunners and will be fitted to your bod, so you end up waltzing out with a uniquely beautiful piece.
I snapped a few piccies so you can soak up some of the fabulousness..
Michelle Radowsky, fashion stylist for the Only One’s showroom, says that this season, big trends are ‘coral, nudes and animal print’. She also reckons anything with ‘biker chic’ embellishment is a winner – think zips and studs. ‘Safety pins are huuuge’, she said.
I also got to chat to model Tracy McGregor.
She let me in on a little secret… that killer tan she’s always rocking isn’t real – girl says she never, ever puts her face in the sun. Instead, she creates a realistic-looking faux glow using Smashbox Sheer Focus tinted moisturiser topped with Benefit’s Hoola bronzing powder. ‘When I take off my make-up, I’ve got this super white face…’, she reveals.
I also bumped into Tanya Nefdt, etv’s intrepid news reporter. As it turns out, we’re both obsessed with Estee Lauder’s new Tom Pecheux Pure Colour lip gloss. ‘I love that it sticks around, but isn’t sticky’, she says. ‘When I’m out in the field, I can’t have my hair flying into my face and sticking to my mouth’.
We then did a little gloss swap…
Something else I saw and loved? These babies!
Overall, this was a fab eve of fashion, glam and gorgeousness. I’m now off to bed to dream of this little darling…
