Penelope Cruz. June cover girl of Vogue.

I have a girl crush on this Spanish beauty. I always had. Ever since i saw her in 'Abre Los Ojos' when i was just a little girl i was amazed. I used to gaze at her, she is insanely gorgeous. Up till now, she is a fashion icon to me, a role model and generally someone i look up to. And this June she is a cover girl for VOGUE. For the 4th time!
Vogue, March 2001 Ain't this cover feels soooo 90's??
Vogue, December 2007 I remember this VOGUE, cause it was, i believe, 2nd real VOGUE magazine i held in my hands. 
Vogue, November 2009  ok, let's not give her the whole credit, but she stills takes up 25% of the cover! With her co-stars in movie NINE. I gotta admit, though, i haven't seen it... Shame on me.
And here it is! June 2011 issue of Vogue. Ms. Cruz here looks just plain gorgeous. Very natural and summery fresh. Perfect cover and editorial from VOGUE.



We see her wearing nothing but white Dolce & Gabbana pieces throughout her editorial, which showcases her outsta…

Let's all be Little Mermaids! Part 2: Choosing the right shade of red for you.

Still sure you want red hair? Are you REALLY sure?  OK then!!! Congratulations with decision of joining the team of red hot Little Mermaids!


The right shade of red hair will perk up a lackluster complexion, brighten light eyes, warm up pale skin and add drama to your overall look. Redheads are the ones turningthe most heads this season: the color connotes a little bit of a bad girl streak and a willingness to stand out from the pack.  Paired with full, billowing waves, this look rates high on the foxy meter.
The problem is that  from strawberry blonde to auburn, crimson to copper, there are so many ravishing reds available that it's difficult to know which is right for you.
 Say you've finally spotted the perfect hair color on the poster of a model at your hair salon. You make an appointment with your hairdresser for that fabulous perfect color only to discover after the damage has been done, that perfect color isn't so perfect on you. What we don't realize is tha…

Let's all be Little Mermaids! Part 1: Make sure you really want it

Red hair is now a hot new trend. But you must carefully consider how red do you want to be before dying or coloring your hair in reddish tones. There is alot to consider beforehand, and since I can call myself experienced in this area, i can give a few advices and examples. I want to start series of posts about choosing the right red hair tone, dying it at home, maintaining it and etc... Being red-hot chicka is amazing, but you need to make sure it is for you. I've seen girls ruining their hair, being unhappy and miserable because of the snap decision to go red. Let's not let this happen to you!


Anyone can wear some shade of red! The key is to learn which works best for you. So if you decided to go red - go and check out my post series where i explain which colours work on you, there's little theory and lots of examples with pictures, i am sure that in this case you'd find it helpful and may learn something new about basic colouring.

HOT trend: Little Mermaid Hair.

Ok, I don't want to take credit for inventing the red hair trend, but... I had it before it was this cool!
My hair was always reddish. I was blonde, black etc... but it always had some red hue in it. And now, after all the experiments with my hair, and huge collection of every possible red tone clip-in hair extensions, that i've heaped up in the past years, cause my hair colour was changing every month, i found perfect red tone for me and staying put with it. I love red hair. It is 100% me! I enjoy being the center of attention, and enjoy getting compliments on my hair.. and overall.... *ego explodes*

But in the last couple of weeks, i keep seing more and MORE women with red hair. It is officialy becoming a trend. They are everywhere, it is literally becoming the new blonde. Red hair is insanely flattering, when you find right shade for you.


Who started all this hype? I always blame Rihanna. Then there was rise of a few redheaded actresses such as Christina Hendricks, Amy Adam…

All hail McQueen! The dresses at Met gala last night

And so it went last night, at the fashion industry’s biggest red carpet event, the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala. The Met Gala is known for spawning some of the most unique and daring red carpet looks of the year, and last night's festivities proved that very notion once again. Last night's theme was Savage Beauty, honoring the late Alexander McQueen.

I have to admit i totaly forgot about this event, which is more famous for us, fashion lovers, than the Oscar's red carpet extravaganza. Celebrities go all out, there are lots of them (more than at the Oscars, not only the actresses and actors... actors don't actually really count, they always wear suits or tux's aka nothing interesting...). Met Gala invites them all: actors, singers, models, socialittes, TV stars.... every known name in the show bussines.

So how did all the celebrities honoured the fabuolous McQueen? It was pomp and circumstance, but in the most respectful way. And considering McQu…

Doing your own bridal beauty when two billion people are watching is a brave move

I know, you are all probobly sick to hear about all the Royal Wedding stuff, you all probobly know, that Kate... a-hem! sorry... Catherin Middleton Duchess of Cambridge seemingly did her own makeup on the big day and all that jazz that all the mass media were reporting like crazy, but since i am a research freak, i did my best to get all the details on the look of the Royal bride.
It’s a brave move to decide to do your own bridal beauty, especially when there are two billion people scrutinising your every move. Watching everything filmed in HD, where it's possible to see every tiny mistake. This was not the time for experimenting. But she is very good at her own make-up, and she was reportidly taking lessons and consulting with a proffesional make up artist, refusing to hire her on a big day itself, cause according to ''insiders'' Kate wanted to have as little people around her in the important morning as possible.
The result? 

Yes, there was a touch more make-up…
