I had some nice comments on the blog lately that reminded me how good the Dior Addict lipstick range is. This made me think about Dior Addict, which led me to my slight obsession with Dutch model and out-of-this-world gorgeous gal, Daphne Groeneveld. Here’s her very cute new ad for the brand spanking new Dior […]
I’ve been wanting to put up this absolutely gorgeous video of the impossibly gorgeous Daphne Groeneveld doing her best Brigitte Bardot impression ever since I first saw it. Directed by Jonas Ackerland (with the stills from the campaign shot by Tim Walker) it’s a delicious whipped cream confection of an ad. J’adore Dior.

Although there are loads of good drugstore products – with the economic heft of global cosmetic giants like Procter […]
I LOVE this video that came out a little while ago, featuring a galaxy of the current crop of top models and makeup by i-D’s new Creative Director, Isamaya Ffrench. It’s pretty much a makeup artist’s dream featuring a riot of glitter, face painting and everything from baby oil to metallic body paint. The things […]
Andrew is a super-talented makeup artist who I was fortunate enough to assist in London, and it was always a fun day together. Teddy boys and Keith Haring, Edwardian beauty, 90’s fashion and Japanese samurai shoots (in an abandoned pub in the East End!) were some of the memorable jobs I helped him on (and […]
