Nars and the Red Headed Tao

... from the June 2010 Vogue Nippon magazine

Tao Okamoto is one of the most noticeable models nowadays that can look great in any hairstyle even in her signature bowl cut. In this editorial (photographed by the famed makeup genius, Francois Nars) her fiery red hair paired with bold smokey/colored eyes combined with intense false lashes and nude lips, makes her swimsuit outfits look so much more fierce and fun to wear. Be sure to look at the nails too... click to enlarge.

Clown Colors

This editorial was featured in the May 2010 Vogue Italy issue. It's interesting to see how they matched the makeup with the textures and colors seen in the clothes. I think it would be fun to see these stylings in real life to see the true artistic aesthetic of everything.

bd's May 2010 Look Collage

necklace, belt, dress from H&, Jeffrey Campbell sandals from, Who the Shrek Are You? by OPI from, model photo from

For May, I was inspired by the beachy yet stylish vibe of Los Angeles (since I'm going there soon later this month) and the beginning of summer. The H&M leopard print dress, tribal inspired necklace, and beaded belt are from the Fashion Against Aids collection is coming out this May 20th. OPI's Who the Shrek Are You?, a slime green color so appropriately named after the green orge in the comedic animation is coming out this month too, I can't wait to see a swatch in real life. Jeffrey Campbell heels are one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn and they're all handmade who makes it worth their price. When I think of sunny and warm places, I like to keep my hair up and makeup simple since I like to wear lots of color and so a more simplistic face balances out my entire look. For that reason, I chose this Armani Prive look from the Spring 2010 Couture collection , an edgy updo with light shimmery eyes. What do you guys think? What would you wear if you traveled to Los Angeles?
