Bits & Bytes: Charlie on the go!

March 31st, 2011 |Posted by Betty


Charlie by Craig Arend.

Did you know model Charlie Paille graduated with a major in fashion design and has her own clothing line? Craig Arend, the “Models Off Duty” photographer follows the Canadian around for the day.

Many girls in America grew up reading Seventeen. I certainly did. If you’re between the ages of 15-22, check out their “Pretty Amazing” contest to be on the cover of the magazine! It’s very easy to enter – just write a short essay on your accomplishments and why you are pretty amazing and you get a chance for the COVER – and also a $10,000 scholarship. Miranda Cosgrove and Just Jared’s Jared Eng are 2 of the judges. 5 finalists get to come to New York.

The super talented hat designer Heather Huey whose creations were (seen in our recent Siki Im fashion week story) has a studio sale this Saturday, check it out.

Anna Dello Russo is so awesome, she gives us her top 10 tips on how to dress if you’re going to the nuptials of the 2 fabulous Kates (Middleton and Moss). We’re going, aren’t you? So kidding.

New designer Sara Badaarani’s F/W 11 collection is a breath of fresh air, declares Sans Artifice. We certainly concur, looking at these strong yet ultra feminine clothes.

Is it me or is everyone under the age of 30 sporting these headphones by Dr. Dre? Check out Charlie Westerberg, sporting them, in these Andrew Weir photographs for Jeffrey Fashion Cares.


Attention fashion fiends, Carven‘s first boutique opens in Paris at 36 rue Saint Sulpice. Designed to look more like a living space than a traditional store, the elegant space boasts the full selection of accessories and ensembles by Guillaume Henry. Fun fact, the visual identity of Carven’s new store was created by Eric Chevallier, the man behind Colette’s atmospheric and funky feel.

Our favorite young art directors, Magnus Berger and Tenzin Wild (also founders of The Last Magazine), designed this logo (below) for this weekend’s Fashion Girls for Japan sample sale/fundraiser. From the organizer, Kanako: “In effort to show our support for the recent earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan and also to cheer up our friends and families in Japan, a mega sample sale will be held on April 2nd and 3rd at Bowery Hotel. More than 60 New York based designers are donating samples to raise money.”

March 25th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle


Frida Gustavsson always looks fresh as a daisy

Everyone can use a little pick me up; whether you are de-stressing from the rigors of fashion month, or just in need of a little R&R. Here are a few insider secrets to help you look your best, each one tried and tested by the MDC team. Think of these goodies as your fail safe beauty lineup to address any and all problems. You’ll be looking as good as Frida in no time!

FATIGUED AND IT SHOWS? Sunday Riley Good Genes

No matter who you are everyone wants to have the look of good genes and now with a boost from Sunday Riley you can. The brand’s Good Genes treatment promises to “plump fine lines, reveal brighter, newer skin, and improve circulation” not a bad combination. Used daily the treatment can reduce dark spots and improve texture, used as a pick me up it can make you look flawless for an evening out. We tested it out and it added some much needed glow to our sallow post-fashion week complexions. Diane Kendal was spotted using this on models backstage at Vanessa Bruno and we hear that Chanel campaign star Blake Lively is a fan of the line too.

Available at Sunday Riley.com & Barneys NY

NEED A REFRESHER? La Mer Gel Cream & Moisturizing Lotion

Creme de la Mer is a fashion staple; Kate Moss slathers her whole body in it, multiple models love its rich formulation and makeup artists can’t get enough. For a dose of La Mer’s signature hydration in a lighter formula give their Gel Cream and Moisturizing Lotion a try. The Gel Cream is cool to the touch and feels incredible, while the Moisturizing lotion is lighter than air and gives combination skin exactly what it needs to look its best.

EYE PUFFINESS? DARK CIRCLES? Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator

Bedrest is a necessity, but with the fast pace of modern life, we don’t always get enough of it. As a result eyes can sometimes look puffy and dark circles can develop resulting in a tired, worn out look. Never fear, Estee’s Cooling Eye Illuminator takes care of all that and then some. With a patent pending ceramic tip and extracts of sea algae, caffeine and sucrose, this little tool massages the delicate eye area and instantly brightens and refreshes. We tested this out during a busy week and it helped us look alert even when running on 2 hours of sleep.

Available starting in April at Bloomingdales

LOST YOUR GLOW? Guerlain L’OR Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold

Guerlain’s gold flecked marvel, L’OR is a little touch of luxury in your skincare routine. A cooling gel infused with real gold flecks may seem extravagant, but once you see how it covers fine lines and provides a natural glow beneath makeup, you’re sure to be impressed. We hear Natalia Vodianova is a fan and after the compliments we got on our skin while wearing it, we’re converts too.

Available at Sephora
