Kristen Stewart Lets Her Hair Down

kristen+stewart+dark+hair Kristen Stewart Lets Her Hair DownThe other day, I posted some photos of Twilight star Kristen Stewart’s new cropped, black coiff.

In those pics, her hair was pulled back and she seemed a little camera shy about revealing her new short cut.

But today, Kristen let her hair down – proudly rocking her Joan Jett inspired shag/mullet. It also appears that she’s embracing the role through her wardrobe.

In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon has partnered with Avon for the launch of her first fragrance, In Bloom by Reese Witherspoon.

The fragrance is an invitation to experience the sensual side of a woman. Precious and exquisite, the scent combines a delicate femininity with a seductive allure and a mysterious beauty.

“In developing In Bloom, I found myself drawn to the scents of my childhood in Tennessee,” explains Reese. “We had a great big Magnolia tree in the back yard, and it’s that beautiful white blossom that inspired the perfume. In Bloom is indicative of where I am in my life today. I’m feeling very strong and independent, and so happy, so full of life. The fragrance truly captures that feeling—it’s very sensual, very romantic and alluring.”

Noted include: Georgia peach, tea leaves and crisp greens (top); Star gardenia, magnolias and night-blooming jasmine (heart); cashmere woods, hypnotic florals and amber wood crystals (base).


“Reese was the perfect partner on the fragrance – she was fully involved in the whole process from the development of the juice and packaging to the fragrance name,” says Isabel Ryan, Director of Avon Creative Development. “I logged many miles flying between NY and LA to work with her to make sure the end result was a true reflection of Reese’s style.”

The fragrance will be available globally in November in two sizes: a 1.7-oz. eau de parfum for $34, and a 1-oz. limited edition version for $59. A body mist, body lotion and shower gel also will be available for $15.

Kristen Stewart Cuts Her Hair & Dyes It Jett Black!

 Kristen Stewart Cuts Her Hair & Dyes It Jett Black!

For her upcoming role as Joan Jett in The Runaways (yeah…Philly in the house!), Twilight star Kristen Stewart chopped her locks and dyed ‘em black.

Rumor has it that filming for Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight saga, will begin in August 2009. Kristen’s hair, obviously, won’t be back to its normal length by then – so I’m waiting to see how the hair team plans to remedy this conundrum.

Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes Sisters

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fashion, Handbags, Interview | Leave a comment

magnes+sisters+bags Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes SistersAs a handbag buff, I was beside myself when I was offered the opportunity to interview Dina, Yael, and Tamar Magnes – the sister act behind Magnes Sisters, a line of fashion forward handbags. Read on for my Q&A with this talented trio. Spoiled Pretty is taking you behind the bag…welcome to the Magnes family!

SP: How did your handbag line come about?
MS:
When we were growing up in Israel, our Grandmother prophesied the careers of each sister – one would design clothing, the second, jewelry, and the third would be a graphic designer. Many years later, we moved to New York together to follow those dreams and collaborate on a handbag line that would use all of our skills. The rest is history!

SP: What was the hardest part about breaking into the industry?
MS:
Breaking in takes a lot of persistence and the drive to keep going. Slowly, by slowly you realize that people are starting to recognize the product and this is what makes it so rewarding.

SP: How would you describe your design aesthetic?

MS:
Our design aesthetic can be summed up by New York City, clean design, and modern vintage!

magnes+sisters+dry+martini Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes Sisters

SP: What inspires your designs?
MS:
The collection is inspired by several factors in our lives – first of all, grandmothers! Our own grandmother had a huge impact on our lives, and was the reason we chose to collaborate. She also had fabulous fashion sense! We loved her vintage style and family has always been very important in our work as well. Secondly, we are constantly being inspired by our home, New York City. Our bags have a very urban design aesthetic, and we are always committed to making every bag functional. They are truly designed for the modern woman on the go and we like to think of them as city chic!

SP: What is your favorite Magnes Sisters handbag to date?
Dina:
My favorite would have to be the Gallery from our classic collection.
Yael:
I’m personally a fan of the new Dancing in the Streets for fall.
Tamar:
I love the I Love Bag from our new fall 09 collection!

SP: How do you come up with the names for your bags?
MS:
There are so many places where you have to be conservative in this industry, this is a fun part! Names are all part of a family of bags and we never use the names of girls. We consider, where you would wear the bags, how are they going to be used, and what will you need to put in them.

maybelline+great+lash+mascara Sister Act: Interview With Handbag Designers, Magnes SistersSP: If I were to search your handbags, what beauty products would I find?
Dina:
Kiehl’s hand cream – I’m a Kiehl’s girl!
Yael:
Sunscreen – SPF 35, Maybelline mascara, Mario Badescu hand cream.
Tamar:
None! I put it all on at home but in my makeup bag there I have a bunch Ricky’s and MAC, Maybelline mascara, MAC bronzer, MAC lip gloss.

SP: Are there other handbag designers that you like to wear?
Dina:
Marni and Chanel.
Yael:
Rachel Nasvik and Chanel.
amar: Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Prada and Chanel.

SP: Who do you envision wearing your bags? What kind of woman is your typical customer?
MS: Definitely a city girl – we always design with chic, modern, working women in mind. The bags are always multi-functional and stylish enough for her to be seen out and about in!

SP: Which celebrity would you love to have wear one of your bags that hasn’t yet?
Dina: Chloe Sevigny, definitely.
Yael:
Michelle Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Tamar:
Katie Holmes, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Liv Tyler.

SP: Does the fact that you’re sisters make it easier or harder to work together?
Dina: It can be a little difficult because we are all so very passionate about the collection and know each other so well.
Yael:
We know each other completely, so there are lots of times when we have fun creating things together, from baking cookies, to planning a party – and we always have had that relationship.
Tamar:
Easier on one hand because we trust each other completely!

SP: Do you have plans to expand your line beyond handbags?
MS: Yes – we want to do paper products eventually, similar to Kate Spade’s line, as well as jewelry, jackets, and many more!

SP: What’s next for Magnes Sisters?
MS:
We want to continue growing, so your readers should get ready to see the Magnes Sisters brand in larger stores! We want to always be having fun, no matter what the future holds for us.

Kim Kardashian’s Old Hollywood Makeup Look, Created by Troy Jensen

When Dior Beauty invited Troy Jensen to their first annual Christian Dior Beauty Lunch benefiting Operation Smile, he invited his favorite muse, Kim Kardashian. On his blog, Troy dishes about his inspiration for Kim’s makeup look – and how he pulled it all off.

“I sent Kim a collage of images of Ava Gardner as inspiration for the look i created. I wanted to create a look that was old Hollywood glam with a touch of a modern chic. I first prepped Kim’s skin with an eye cream and moistureizer, then blended a concealer under the eyes, forehead, down the center of the nose and blended well into her skin. I then applied a liquid foundation to give a subtle golden glow. I set with a finishing powder and dusted a Rose Pink powder blush to the apples of her cheeks. I applied a bronzer to the outer perimeter of temples, down her cheek bones, and jaw line. The bronzer was a golden tan with a subtle shimmer. When I’m creating a flawless complexion on Kim, I feel she looks stunning with a little natural gleam to the skin. For the eyes I wanted to create a daytime glam. Which involved a subtle golden smokey eye, glowing complexion, and a sheer red lip. I first blended a golden bronze eyeshadow onto the entire eyelid using a matte bone color in the arch of the brow. I then lined her entire eye with a chocolate brown eyeliner, curled and coated her lashes and added a few individual eyelashes to just the ends of her eyes for an old Hollywood flare. I topped the look off with defining her lips with a neutral lip color and filled in her entire lip with a sheer Cherry red lip gloss. This look is sexy, Its fresh, Its glamorous, and perfect for the alluring Kim Kardashian.”
