Custo Barcelona NYFW S/S 15

Article by Laura Rickii


Custo Dalmau, is the designer behind the label Custo Barcelona. The collection was showcased Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Center.  Known for its bright colors and mixing of prints, Custo Barcelona did not fail to make the crowd excited with its upbeat music and bright hues.

The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was filled with geometric cut outs and subtle transparencies in a range of textiles, from ultra-light linens to flowy silks. Custo continued the juxtaposition of colors, prints and textiles, while introducing the geometric cut outs and openings that allowed for a sexy and seductive silhouette. Ultimately, it was the cutout detailing which stole the show. A majority of the collection was enhanced by the intricate cutwork and unique textured appliques.

The collection was super wearable for any risk taker.  Bold, bright, psychedelic looks extending from suits, dresses to swimwear for both genders, Gusto Barcelona is an international brand that will not quit.






Black Widow: Iggy Azalea new Kill Bill inspired video featuring Rita Ora


Black Widow: Iggy Azalea unveils new Kill Bill inspired video featuring Rita Ora.....For all the movement they do in this video, these femme fatales needed threads to match.


 The combined brainchild of Iggy, her stylist Alejandra Hernandez and designer Marco Marco, the suits are made of super-stretchy skintight fabric to stand up to their kung fu choreo and are meant to look, in Iggy’s words, “not like we were twins, but like maybe we were from the same kung fu training school or something.” The result is sleek, agile, and definitely dangerous.

Sam Smith - Stay with me (Music Review)



"Stay With Me" is a song by British singer-songwriter Sam Smith, released as the third single from his debut studio album, In the Lonely Night.  It was released in the United Kingdom as a digital download on 18 May 2014. The song was written by Smith.  The remix version features American R&B singer Mary J Blidge. It has peaked at #5 on Billboard, making it Smith's first top-five single in the United States.

The YouTube views made 30 million.. perhaps because of a combination of its lyrics and “tune”, which was actually about a one-night stand and loving it though without love and commitment in it.

Yea, nowadays, even in many parts of the world.. people could relate to such scenario.

Celebrity Relationships- The pressures and how to make it work

Briana Gilbert

Here we go again, at least once a month celebrity couples are on the latest talk shows, talked 
about on the radio stations, and are featured in the tabloids in the grocery stores next to 
the check- out line. The title of the tabloid that lingers on the bottom of the page under the 
pictures that depicts a “happy after ever photo” when the couple was happy together, now tells 
the world that their relationship has come to an end. 

If you have not noticed celebrities are faced with problematic short term relationships and 
marriages. It is already difficult to be in a relationship, but when your relationship is in the spot 
light it is even more difficult to keep. 
Celebrities are in the public eye and it can be easy to forget that they are human beings just 
like any person. They are people, with families, and face adversities and problems such as 
relationship problems as any other person does. 
 There are various difficulties in the industry that may affect celebrity relationships that every 
day people does not go through. Problems such as twisted photos and rumors going viral on 
social networks. Others features, unspent time together because one or the other is in tour, 
and the pressure and stress that comes from not being able to walk down the street without a 
flock of flashing lights and microphones pushed in your face. The endless groupies in the hotel 
lobby, determined to get what they want can’t be forgotten. 
Reality T.V shows and music lyrics that promotes infidelities and also short relationships add 
more pressure to celebrities relationships.
The shows and music of this time can promote 
negative relationships. They can also set new standards for the traditional relationship, by 
sending out messages such as it is easy to get another woman or man. What happened to the 
older music that made you want to work hard to keep you relationship? Or wanted you to rush 
home to make love to your significant other?
Not all celebrity couples relationships let influences and problem from the society affect them. 
Some couples have figured out the “formula” to remaining happy with each other. The formula 
includes remaining strong in the relationship in a society that is not for successful relationships. 
For an example Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith has been together for more than 15 years. 
That doesn’t mean that punches from the media where not thrown their way. The couple sets 
an example for celebrity marriages. They prove that although they are not secretive their love 
is powerful enough to keep them together. They are not perfect, but continues to stick in their 
In order to have a successful relationship in the industry it has to be true love. The celebrities 
have to be a “power couple”. They have to be so powerful that no matter what changes in the 
world that are against them their love will remain the same. They have to want to make the 
relationship work despite of the double hard work that must be put in for it to lasts. To make 
it lasts celebrities must visit their significant while they may be in another state. Absence make 
the heart grows fonder, right? They must keep the sparks alive. 
As stated earlier celebrates are no different in the sense that they are people with feelings and 
emotions. The couple that survives in the celebrity world proves that it can be done. It is almost 
more beautiful to see a couple strength of love that helps them pass the storm to reveal that no 
matter what the sun has to shine and the flowers will bloom because they are together.



Eyelash Envy 

The Eyelash Envy


Article by Dory Jackson

Speaking on behalf of women everywhere, I think it is safe to say that many women

dreams of having gorgeous eyelashes. Unfortunately, some of us are not graced with

beautifully long eyelashes from birth. Mascara can only do but so much in enhancing

eyelash length and fullness, yet there are methods to getting the eyelash look you

are going for.

Methods to the Madness:

1. Individual Lashes

Many women have resorted to using fake eyelashes as

a way to temporarily give the appearance of longer lashes. Individual lashes

are applied with a lash adhesive and it generally lasts 1 to 2 weeks. This has

proved as a popular solution for women since it is drug store accessible. Plus,

they are fairly affordable. As long as you know how to apply them correctly,

then you are good to go. via


2. Eyelash Extensions

In comparison to individual lashes, lash extensions give

off a more natural appearance. The process is a tad dreary since a lash stylist

applies the lashes carefully. Despite that, you will leave the salon with the

look you want. It is recommended to get extension touch ups every 2 to 4

weeks. This can prove to be costly overtime, but on the plus side, mascara is

no longer a necessity since the eyelash extensions provide a longer and fuller

look. via


3. Prescription Treatment for Eyelash Growth


Model Brooke Shields is very knowledgeable of this method since she uses a prescription treatment

to improve the length of her lashes. Latisse—the brand Shields uses—

and LiLash are two products that help to promote eyelash growth. These

products claim to grow fuller and longer lashes at a quicker pace. Now, both of these products have proved to work for many, but they tend to be on the pricier side. via


4. Growing Lashes out Naturally


This is a method that I had tried myself. I did

some research and found different ways to naturally grow eyelashes. I have

found that castor oil, coconut oil, and Vaseline all help to promote eyelash

hair growth. I decided to experiment around with this by using coconut oil

as a way to grow my eyelashes. As a pleasant surprise, it had worked! My

eyelashes are now longer and thicker. I also tried Vaseline and that method

worked fairly well too.of these products have proved to work for many, but they tend to be on the

pricier side.  via


Hopefully, I have been able to provide helpful ways for you to enhance the look of

your eyelashes. Good luck!

Everybody's Got Something is the title of a new memoir Roberts has coauthored with Veronica Chambers. In it, she describes her "somethings" — her breast cancer and a rare blood disorder, which required a bone marrow transplant.

Roberts shared her treatment and recovery with her Good Morning America audience. "As my mother would say: 'Make your mess your message," Roberts says.  Robin Roberts very "Beauty within"

LA Perla boutiques in Hong Kong and Macao 



La Perla Macao Ribbon Cutting with Silvio Scaglia, Chiara Scaglia and Liu Wen,


 The La Perla Boutique at Harbour City in Hong Kong celebrates its new image with an exclusive cocktail party on April 25, 2014. The La Perla Boutique at Venetian Resort in Macao was unveiled just one day later. Super model Liu Wen, who is one of the faces of the La Perla S/S 2014 campaign, and La Perla Asia Pacific Managing Director Ms. Chiara Scaglia attended the events.



 Liu Wen at Hong Kong re-opening event


The new design for the La Perla boutiques is the result of the work of architect Roberto Baciocchi, founder of the internationally renowned architectural studio with its headquarters in Arezzo - Italy. He also took the reins for all of the stores of Prada, Miu Miu and Church’s.


The project is clearly inspired by great Italian architecture, and was put together by Baciocchi for La Perla. References to the work of Carlo Scarpa from the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona can be found in the soft, dusty coloured walls dressed in painted fabric, and in the display cases within the store.




The ultra feminine range of colour shades, from pale blue, through dusky pink to daffodil yellow, plays on the luxurious essentiality of the hexagonal Portuguese marble slabs. Severity and softness are also found where the paving meets the rugs and silk tub armchairs in the same pastel tones as the walls.




The arch is one of the distinctive architectural elements of Italian art and here it becomes a backdrop lined in pink onyx inside each window.

The fitting rooms, featuring amethyst-coloured walls, are defined by backlit tulle panelling, creating a light, mellow and comfortable space. Another surprise is the metal grate feature that recalls ancient confessionals, and a “Service” bell for calling a member of the sales staff.
