Sure we saw plenty of beautiful, wearable hair and makeup looks throughout the past two months of the various 2011 Fall Fashion Weeks, but sometimes it's the avant-garde ones that are the most memorable. Earlier today at the Melbourne Fashion Festival, designer Celene Bridge (as part of the LMFF National Graduate Showcase) decked her models out in animalistic head pieces, like this one, which is reminiscent of something you'd see straight out of Donnie Darko. See more of these carnal creations now.
In the Victorian era, florigraphy or "flower writing" was a popular way to communicate messages, with a myriad of flowers, herbs, and other plants taking on nuanced romantic and social meanings. But the Victorians weren't the first to assign flowers meaning, and there's a long history of connecting some of the most popular flowers to specific personality traits and emotions.
In the same way an orchid symbolizes refined beauty, your favorite floral fragrance may be sending a message about your persona and emotions. It's all in good fun, so are you ready to find out what your favored floral "says" about you?
Watch out, Yankee Candle. Thirteen-year-old Hart Main is hot on your trail. The teenage entrepreneur has created a line of candles scented with "masculine" aromas like buttered popcorn, grass, garage, sawdust, and bacon. Each hand-poured Mancans candle is packaged in an empty soup can (Hart reuses them after donating food to a soup kitchen) and shipped from his central Ohio home. And if that weren't enough, the budding wax mogul makes his own commercials to show how his product can magically transform Justin Bieber into one of the manliest men in music history:
Retouching is everywhere, but not in these ads. Make Up For Ever's new campaign is its first to ditch Photoshop. Instead, it's showing off its line of HD makeup in ads made without the touch-ups ubiquitous in the beauty industry. Sure, the women featured are stunning in the first place. And yes, great lighting, top stylists, and professional makeup artists help a lot. Still, how refreshing is it to see an honest view of what products can do — not to mention women who look real instead of digitally "perfected"? If you're in love with these makeup looks, you can create them with these guides. What do you think of this effort?
