Rick Genest, AKA Zombie Boy, who’s garnered worldwide attention with his Nicola Formichetti/Mugler association, reveals a completely different side of himself in the latest Schön Magazine. Matthew Lyn‘s crisp and striking images uncovers an almost angelic face underneath the ink. Contrasting divinely with the pieces by Rag & Bone, James Long and Issey Miyake, Rick and his tattoos certainly give a whole different spin on the fall looks. Tell us if you think it works in the comments. (See the full editorial/behind the scenes video on Schon).

mdc ♥’s : beauty to go!

With fashion month in full swing it feels like everyone is headed somewhere. Even if you weren’t jetting off to Milan to catch last week’s Prada show, it is still good to know what beauty essentials you ought to be toting with you – you never know when those to die for invites are going to come in the mail. As such here are a few of our beauty favorites for you international jet setters.

Clarisonic MIA – Don’t leave home without it, the best skincare brush in a pocket size that makes it perfect for trips. With only one speed (the original Clarisonic has three) it is even easier to use and works just as well when it comes to exfoliating and cleansing.

Malin & Goetz Detox Face Mask – Planning on spending late nights out at those fashion week parties? Who can resist the temptation. Think of Malin & Goetz’s mask as a detox plan for your face, the lightweight foam is packed with complex amino acids and natural almond extract to soothe the skin and provide gentle cleansing.

Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Eyeshadow Palettes – Every single eyeshadow you will need in a perfectly portable case. With this you can create everything from an “I just rolled out of bed looking this fabulous” neutral look to the coveted perfect smoky eye. Bobbi offers two different palettes depending on your skintone, but we found both worked fabulously. Keep in mind that this is a limited edition item, so be sure to get yours before they run out!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation – If it is good enough for the girls of Chanel couture, it is good enough for us. 10 hours worth of coverage in one tiny bottle.

Illamasqua Volume Mascara Alex Box‘s Illamasqua line is filled with unique products and one of our favorites is her volumizing mascara. One coat and you look completely done.

NUDE Skincare Hydrating Water – The instant solution to the horrific dryness you’ll find in most airplane cabins. One spritz and you’re good.

Estee Lauder Cooling Eye Illuminator – A handy little gem that we go back to again and again, because it just works. If you haven’t gotten eight hours of sleep, or just suffer from puffy eyes this solves the problem in an instant.

iPad 2 – Granted, the iPad is not necessarily a beauty must have, but there is no better way to bring all your magazines, books, movies and other sources of fashion inspiration with you on the road. Want to read the latest Vogue Italia on the plane? It is right there with a click of a button.
