Double Vision: Clear Winner

March 27th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Transparency was all over the S/S13 runways and as the season draws closer it seems fitting to explore one of its dominant trends. The house whose designs exemplified the look was VALENTINO, where designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli showed a variety of pieces that utilized transparency expertly, revealing skin but keeping the demure sophistication the brand has become known for. Whether they were dazzling with delicate embroidery, or creating a sublime showcase for the body via cutouts, the duo set the standard for diaphanous dressing.

One piece in particular took the look to its logical endpoint and dazzled with its whimsical cheekiness. The PVC trenchcoat embellished with the line’s signature rockstuds has become an editorial favorite, with stylists providing their own take on the Valentino look. The trench lends itself to a myriad of different interpretations and stylists did not disappoint, creating a variety of looks that range from sensual, to avant-garde. When a garment can go from the all out sexy of Missy Rayder‘s powerful image in Numero, to the easy cool on the back of Angela Lindvall it more than proves its versatility.

May 8th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

With four gorge covers shot by Kai Z Fengstyled by Tom Van Dorpe, and art directed by Jakob Hysén Hedberg,the latest issue of  Stockholm S/S/A/W Magazine packs an instantaneous punch. The stark yet elegant shots of Aline WeberNimue SmitShu Pei and Hailey Clauson are haunting and beautiful – not to mention a nice change from all the over-saturated colors we’ve been seeing on covers lately.

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
