Vertical stripes always highlight better  the female body. This is a fact. For those who hesitate to put  stripes on their look, choose the vertical, and the result will surely reward you. In the case of a striped dress with vertical stripes it creates the sense that you legs are longer and for those of you who have filled curves, it flatters your body better showing it slimmer.

Untitled #1094
Haute Couture Fashion Week for the season Fall / Winter 2014-15 has began,  here’s everything you need to know about the fascinating world of Couture!
An informed fashionista should know fashion in depthand everything surrounding it so, in view of Couture Fashion Week, I generously giving away the ‘Haute Couture’ facts that you should have in mind.
THE DEFINITION
The «Haute Couture» literally translates as “High Tailoring” and as you might already know, is luxury, sur mesure creations that in their sight you exclaim enthusiastically and wish to wear something similar on your wedding day.
THE HISTORY
As early as  in the 19th century, the Parisian high class turned in Haute Couture to attend the variety of calls, providing them a unique – literally – and impressive appearance. Today is quite the same , and few designers who can meet the standards that are demanded  for the creation of a Haute Couture collection.
HOW MUCH A HAUTE COUTURE CREATION COSTS
Since some pieces require up to 700 hours to create the prices start from £ 8,000 and can reach up to a few million, if you think about the fabrics used rare and the luxurious embroidery which often adorn the evening creations.
WHO MAKES THE HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTIONS.
The  term «Les petite mains» translated as “little hands” and essentially refers to 2,200 seamstresses who “give life” to haute couture creations, remaining usually dedicated to a fashion house for their entire careers.
WHO BUYS THE HAUTE COUTURE CREATIONS.
Nowadays, the main buyers come from Russia, China and the Middle East ..
WHERE DO THE COLLECTIONS PRESENTED
The collections are always shown at the ‘birthplace’ of couture, that in Paris.
WHICH HOUSES HAVE A HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION
Christian Dior, Chanel, Valentino, Elie Saab and Jean-Paul Gaultier are in the official program presentation at Fashion Week Haute Couture.
HOW PROFITABLE CAN A COUTURE COLLECTION FOR EACH FASHION HOUSE
In fact, houses usually suffer from the couture collections. The colossal costs and discerning clientele (it is estimated that there are 2,000 customers alike worldwide) might best explains why over the last 60 years the number of couture houses has decreased dramatically. In any case, a couture collection is considered by many long investment, enhancing the image of the house and the profile of collections ready-to-wear.

Beauty Report: REFLETS D’ÉTÉ DE CHANEL SUMMER LE VERNIS NAIL COLOURS | A FIRST LOOK AT EASTERN LIGHT, MIRABELLA, TUTTI FRUTTI, PINK TONIC AND SWEET LILAC

Untitled #1091
The new makeup collection of Chanel is inspired by the most beautiful, seductive colours of summer! And one piece of this magical collection is the new varnish, as we  are used by the legandery house, illustrating the most hot trends in the colors of the season!
This time, the shades of Le Vernis is matched with the shades of the lip gloss collection, and created to be combined, mixed, causing the imagination for the most daring mix & match!

Chanel Le Vernis is 5-Free (free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). The signature square glass bottles are topped with a black square outer cap that is removed to reveal a stubby, round, ribbed inner cap. The brush is round, medium in length and width and reminds me of the old OPI brushes. It easily fans out and covers the nail without much resistance.

The consistency of the polishes in this collection is thin and pliable but packed with pigment, with the white being the one exception. The rest are all two coat confections that dry nice and glossy. Whites are notoriously difficult and Eastern Light certainly continues the tradition. It’s streaky and not the best at self leveling. I needed three coats and still wasn’t happy with the finish.

 

These are all listed as limited-edition on Chanel.com except for Tutti Frutti.
