beauty box
BOOM. It’s here. The project that has been in months of months of development…She Said Beauty – the Ultimate Beauty Discovery Box. I have been honoured as the Editor of the beauty blog and general online “voice” of the brand.

Keep in mind, this is only Step One of She Said Beauty and, in fact, you will be blown away by both the quality and quantity of changes that are coming in the next six months. My lips are sealed in regards to the whats and whens, but I can let you know that along with a Facebook-esque integration to the site, the blog will be transitioning into magazine territory, with the Beauty Director of Elle – Emma Strenner – and some incredible writers and bloggers already on board.

I love my team, and I am so proud of what we have already accomplished in just a week of business.


(Note: Take a look at my first Editor’s Letter, Zooey Deschanel makeup tutorial, and “Make-up For Me” for a content taster. You will love our ‘real girl’ face of the day Street Beauty on Tumblr, and should definitely follow us on Twitter and Facebook for insider updates!)

Emma Watson Feathers Elle

  • So, it’s definitely more feathers than fashion, but I am loving Emma Watson on the cover of Elle UK‘S November issue. The sherbet-coloured cover is unconvential, abnormally cropped and was shot by Rankin. A cover after my own heart! What do you think?

  • Next collaboration with Target? It’s Jason Wu!

    Yesterday, @TargetStyle tweeted: “Who is the next #TargetDesigner? Get your sleuthing gear on, we’re about to share some clues.”

    Then, “#TargetDesigner Clue 1: the new @TargetStyle designer began sketching the future of fashion at 5 years old.” (Any Wu fan would know he designed and sewed doll clothes as a child!)
    Then, the second clue: “#TargetDesigner Clue 2: A beautiful visual… could it be from the next collection?″

    No more clues needed! Placing all my bets on Jason Wu.

  • Remember when America’s Next Top Model castoff Fatima Siad walked the Dries van Noten runway? (Come on, it was only two days ago…) Well, the gorgeous Somalian just joined the likes of Arizona Muse and Kasia Struss as a model for Hermes‘ Spring/Summer 2012 collection, as well! WERK.

  • The French government is honouring Glenda Bailey, the fanastic editor from Harper’s Bazaar, with a prestigious award given to artists who strive to strengthen the arts in France, the Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
  • Joan Smalls Grafitti
    I absolutely adore this vivacious October 2011 cover of Elle UK. “The Model Issue“, as it is otherwise being offered, is fronted by the always-effortless Joan Smalls who appears to have graffitied “Girl Power” onto the wall in one way or another. Her Alexei Hay-lensed, velvet-heeled stance just screams all the sorts of fierce that Tyra Banks tries to drill into the Next Top Model wannabes.

    Coco Rocha Shock of The New
    Coco Rocha is absolutely magnetic, isn’t she? Photographed here for “The Shock of The New” by Matthias Vriens-McGrath in the August 2011 issue of Elle UK, she is steaming with confidence. The always-excellent stylist Anne-Marie Curtis has draped Coco in some of the Fall/Winter best from Prada, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, Giorgio and Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, and more.
