Can’t believe this is actually me! My tresses after the first clay treatment yesterday.
My hair has been dyed, styled, straightened, crimped, curled, jet black, highlighted, low-lighted, bleach blonde, red ombré, short, long, and… tired. In fact, my hair is SO damaged that my stylist, Kristina Lombardi, picked me to be her “guinea pig” for Eufora‘s latest hair repair treatment, the Damage Cure Clay Masque. This clay treatment promises to bring my hair back to life by rebuilding the inner structure of my hair, repairing damage caused by chemicals, heat styling and UV exposure. So, for the next month, I’ll be having the treatment done at Loki Hair Studio in Toronto every week and we’ll be sharing our findings with all of you right here on the blog!Tweet
If there’s one thing a Eurotrash girl needs in her life, it’s Bottega Veneta. The intrecciato weave makes my heart sing in relief for a most fortunate underexposure in the street style limelight. Translation: Man Repeller hasn’t worn it past the point of no return, in fact she hasn’t really worn this brand at all. Disclaimer: I’ve assumed this; either my assumption is indeed correct or I don’t follow Miss Medine as hard as I should.
You don’t know Lapo’s girlfriend, do you? Her name is Bianca Brandolini D’Adda. She’s an italian socialite who moonlights as a model. She probably has the longest legs on the peninsula. I love her style, obviously. Always a touch of darkness to her looks that eschew a stylist’s touch. I like that.
She’s got so many high class friends, it’s hard to find a pic of her by herself so here’s the best I could find. Disregard the Battaglias, Delevingnes and Sozzanis….Tweet
Just Cavalli FW 2013. I call this collection Roberto’s Inferno.
Just Cavalli FW13 show is happening RIGHT NOW. And tune in on Saturday morning for Roberto Cavalli FW 2013! In bocca al lupo.
Part man, part eurotrash. Roberto Cavalli is one of those industry veterans that has never really had to change much of himself in order to stay relevant. He is somehow always anachronistic when it comes to the current fashion trends. He is just Cavalli, always and forever. Senza fine.
Imagine my delight when I flipped open the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar and found his sunglass-shielded eyes staring up at me? The magazine chose the Italian designer for “MY LIST” – a day in the life of the industry’s most interesting players. Look out for Carine Roitfeld in the Fashion Issue. It’s one of my fave columns, needless to say.
So what did HB have to say about Cavalli (or what did Cavalli have to say about himself?)Tweet
Before rushing off to Diesel Black Gold, we snapped a quick outfit pic. I’m wearing: suede boots by Browns; dress by Elena V; aegean sweater by Euro Trash Clothing available online; leather jacket by Mackage; Neverfull bag by Louis Vuitton; wool and leather cloche by Max & Co; Mallory eyeglasses by Warby Parker.Tweet
Ladies and gentlemen, la pièce de résistance, ending my New York Fashion Week with a bang: Diesel Black Gold. Let me tell you about my insider experience at this show. All the people I’ve ever written about in my “Eurotrash People” series were in the flesh (Eleonora Carisi, Anna dello Russo, Giovanna Battaglia… and Chiara Ferragni aka The Blonde Salad). I was in Eurotrash heaven. Chiara, in her pink metallic Burberry trench sat across from me, and I don’t normally approach people because I’m really shy and usually think I’m disturbing their only moment of tranquility – that’s how I would feel if I were famous – but I knew I would regret not introducing myself to her.Tweet
Are you guys having fun reading my posts about fashion week in New York? It was actually the best thing ever. My first time at the Lincoln Centre tents was to see Scandinavian couturier, Nina Skarra. Again, a very similar colour palette to my previous feature, Katerina Grey. Black is the new red; red is the new black; and white is the only thing you need. Nina Skarra threw some plums in there – the likes of textured knit pants and dresses, which made me very happy.Tweet
Parsons grad, couture chick, Katarina Grey is a breath of fresh air. She’s younger than most of us and probably more sophisticated. I had the pleasure of viewing her second collection, Decadent Opulence (sounds pretty Eurotrash to me), at The Nomad Hotel in New York during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
