Aadore - Beauty Recommendations

I recieved a sample of Diorshow mascara with a magazine I bought about a month ago, and ever since then I am in LOVE with the mascara. No Clogs, One coat and it makes my lashes look longer and fuller - and for me (seeing as I have hardley any lashes), I'm very happy. AUS $45.

I have also been using Dove's Summer Glow Body Lotion for the past 5 days, and for me it has worked perfectly. I have olive type skin so I'm not super white, but I was feeling a little wintery and sunless with my skin and thought I would give it a go and see what it did. I was scared at first thinking I'm going to go orange or yellow, but it has just given me a type of glow! I think its perfect and a lot cheaper than a spray tan which of course flakes off after only a short period of time. Not to mention the benefits of the moisteriser. AUS $6.99.


Me and My not so little sister.

Britney poses nude for Harper's Bazaar

"Oops, she lost her clothes.

A six-month pregnant Britney Spears has posed nude for the cover of the August issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine and an accompanying photo spread inside, much in the style of the famous 1991 Vanity Fair cover of a naked and heavily pregnant Demi Moore." - From Ninemsn

She looks quite happy and 'glowing' in the photo - even after her breakdown on TV.... Or is that just photoshop? Either way, I think its a nice photo of her.

Maxim Top 10 - from 100 Hottest Women

What do you think of the Top 10. I agree with some... I like Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie and I think Scarlett Johansson is quite pretty, but the rest... hrmm?!?!

1. Eva Longoria, 2. Jessica Alba

3. Lindsay Lohan, 4. Angelia Jolie

5. Stacy Keibler, 6. Scarlett Johansson

7. Cameron Diaz, 8. Kate Bosworth

9. Keira Knightley, 10. Christina Milian

Christina Aguilera in GQ Magazine

I like Christina's new classy and elegant image (even though there is still 'dirrty' in her). I also think she's way past the Britney/Christina comparison... Christina is obviously in the lead. Her Monroe-esque in the photo below is pretty much spot on. Now im undecided on who has done Marilyn better: Christina or Kate...

Eurovision Song Contest 2006 - Winners

Love it. Finland's Lordi won Eurovision with 42% of the votes! Finally!!!
From the press conference after the show...

"For the millionth time, we’re not Satanists or devil worshippers," he said. "This is entertainment. The masks are like our calling card and we’ll never perform without them. It would be like Santa Claus handing a child his gifts and Christmas time and then pulling off his beard and saying, 'By the way, I’m your father…' "

Here was my fav (apart from Finland of course)...

"AngloMania", the Costume Institute exhibition that is open from this month, from May 1 through to September 4, in the English period rooms of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

AngloMania focuses on British fashion from 1976 to 2006, a period of astounding creativity and experimentation. Over the past 30 years, British fashion has been defined by a knowing and self-conscious historicism. In their search for novelty, designers have looked to past styles with an appetite that is as audacious as it is rapacious. Focusing on their postmodern, historicizing tendencies, this exhibition presents a series of tableaux based on Britain’s rich artistic traditions. The irony of satirical prints, the romance of landscape paintings, and the glamour and bravado of grand manner portraits are evoked through a wide spectrum of British designers. The exhibition is set in the Metropolitan Museum’s English period rooms—the Annie Laurie Aitken Galleries—to create a potent dialogue between the past and the present.
- Metropolitan Museum of Art

Historic English costumes will be juxtaposed with the work of fashion and accessory designers including Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan, Stephen Jones, Philip Treacy, and Manolo Blahnik. The exhibition is underwritten by Burberry (celebrating its 150th anniversary this year), a company that literally clothed the British Empire with ineffably practical, weather-resistant garments and that is now enjoying a design renaissance under the fashion direction of Yorkshire-born Christopher Bailey.
