1940’s Look

HeadShot

There’s something about the 1940’s that exudes both elegance and determination.  While brothers, boyfriends and husbands served overseas, American women went to work in factories and offices – keeping both the economy and the war effort going.  And while they often performed very unglamorous jobs, many did so in full makeup and with perfectly styled hair.  During this time, makeup sales continued to rise and more cosmetics were sold at drugstores, which added to their accessibility.

Foundation became increasingly popular during the 1940’s and a slightly darker than natural look was preferred.  Due to rationing, loose baby powder was used to set the foundation.  Cheeks remained bright and rosy as well.  The eyes were really the focus of the wartime face. The 1940s brow was still carefully plucked, and matte eye shadow was used to highlight the crease. By this decade, mascara was quite commonplace and women also used black eyeliner to enhance their lashes and brows. Red lipstick still took center stage, though other colors like pink and orange-red were also popular.

We were super stoked to have the talented Victoria & gorgeous Kiana stop by Filthy’s studio to create a historically accurate 1940’s make up look.  Check out the video above and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Creature Comfort

We are enamored with the beauty and cool textures in the September 2015 issue of WSJ. Magazine.  We especially are drawn to the cover featuring Freja Beha Erichsen, photographed by Lachlan Bailey, in the great outdoors clutching a cute baby panda lamb (cue the awws).

The Danish model is wearing a thick fur coat from Louis Vuitton (styled by Ludivine Poiblanc), some people are declaring a huge styling mishap saying that the cover is super sinister, creepily inappropriate and insensitive.

We personally love it.  It makes for a stunning image and fashion has always been provocative.  Don’t you prefer this to the sexualization of young teens, or the culturally offensive stuff, the glamorization of hard drugs?  Though we can certainly understand, and respect, why others would be disturbed by it.

Love At First Sight

Ainsley and Sebastien are an unconventional pair: They moved in together after just three weeks of dating and even got engaged in the middle of a photo shoot.

So, it only made sense the images taken at their Las Vegas elopement would be as wild as Ainsley’s rainbow-hued hair and Sebastien’s scraggly beard.

Photographer Janneke Storm captured the couple’s out-of-this-world aesthetic in heavily saturated shots snapped running through Vegas and lounging on a beach in Bali.

Australian native Ainsley first met Canadian-born Sebastien when he served her coffee at a local organic cafe she’d been known to frequent.

She told Rock n Roll Bride it was love at first sight.

The pair exchanged “I love yous” after three dates, and married after spending more than five years together.

This past November, the pair flew to Bali for a tropical 1-year-anniversary celebration, slightly updating their Vegas wedding day outfits.

8 Style Rules

Kate-Moss-550447

Kate Moss has revealed her eight style rules

She barely gives interviews and has shunned social media but as she prepares to celebrate her 41st birthday on January 16th, Kate Moss has decided to divulge her wardrobe secrets.

The blonde-haired supermodel spoke to Look magazine about her top eight style rules.

1. Vamp up your look with lipstick

Kate wears a natural beige lip colour day-to-day but for a more dramatic evening look opts for a pillar box red.

“I just slick it on, I don’t bother with lipliner,” she says.

2. Don’t be afraid of high heels

Even when she’s papped popping to Tesco for a pint of milk, Kate is hardly out of her trusty sky-high boots.

She tells the magazine that “great shoes” can transform a look: “They will make an outfit feel polished, cool and put together.”

3. Sort out your clobber

Kate has not one, not two but THREE wardrobes – “one big one and two everyday ones”.

In order to keep your clothes in check she recommends organising things into boxes and labelling them with Polaroids.

“I organise my denim, leather and dresses by colour, although my jeans are usually black and grey,” she adds.

4. Summer style should be effortless

Make sure your beach bag is full of “floaty chiffons and soft suede”, says Kate.

The supermodel is a fan of maxi dresses but leaves her heels at home because “wearing them on a beach is ridiculous”. Agreed.

5. Shop vintage 

Don’t be afraid to rifle through charity shops and flea markets to find hidden gems.

“Look for quality pieces that can be repaired if needed,” says Kate.

6. Pick a capsule wardrobe 

Kate says her staple items are “jeans, a tank top, a jacket and boots”.

She thinks every woman should find key pieces that work for her, including a must-have “little black dress”.

Kate says you should ‘only dress for attention if you want it’

7. Ward off the paps

Kate tries to keep the cameras off her by wearing similar things every day.

She says, “If you wear the same thing, they get bored and leave you alone.”

8. Find a beauty regime – and stick to it  

Mossy swears by Creme de la Mer to keep her skin moisturised and Lucas Papaw balm for chap-free lips.

She also treats herself to Nichola Joss facials when she’s looking for a pick-me-up.
