Guccissima

August 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The Gucci look could never be called minimalist but in Love Magazine‘s latest issue, a pared down Natalia Vodianova makes the line’s ostentatious wares look downright austere. The beautiful and simple shots by Alasdair McLellan capture Natalia’s beauty and Katie Grand‘s impeccable styling brings out the best of Gucci’s archival pieces.

mdc ♥s : Skin Rx

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.

Available at Creme de la Mer.com & Saks Fifth Avenue

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

Celestial Bodies

March 15th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

When you have Natalia Vodianova, Joan Smalls, Daria Werbowy, Gisele Bundchen, Raquel Zimmermann and Lara Stone all in one story, little else needs to be done so M&M tone down their signature theatrics and let the beauty of each girl and Lisa Butler‘s natural makeup shine through.

The September Issues Pt. 2

August 17th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

September’s issues keep flooding in and each one brings something special to the table, here is a look at a few more fall fashion magazines guaranteed to catch your eye on the newsstand. Let us know which ones are your favorite!

Liu Wen snags the debut issue of Numero China with two stellar covers. Note that this is the first Numero debut issue that doesn’t feature Kate Moss, a major coup for Liu and a great salute to the incredible fashion talent in China.

September’s Vogue Russia is a bittersweet affair, it is the final issue under the direction of editor Aliona Doletskaya. As always the cover is phenomenal, with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shooting Natalia Vodianova in their signature surrealist style.

Vogue Germany goes for high energy with a great shot of a logo covered Constance Jablonski, by Greg Kadel. The shopping theme gets right to the point and Constance shines in multiple editorials inside the magazine itself.
