Runway Beauty for Halloween

Runway Beauty for Halloween

Halloween Makeup Inspiration From Runway | Yohji Yamamato FW2014Those freakish beauty looks on runways that non-fashion people never ever understand and usually make fun of are actually there for a reason. No, not for the sake of the show or as an artistic aspect of the collection, you’re wrong. It exists only and solely for Halloween inspiration. But why choose to put on crazy ass makeup on Halloween instead of becoming a character? 1) It is original and there will be no one with the same look. 2) Who has the time & money to look for costumes anyway? It is perfect for the lazy girl, something you can do within a few hours notice of a party. 3) You can be as candid as when you were a kid playing with your mother’s toiletry.

If you’re convinced, here are 30 runway beauty looks that would be perfect Halloween inspiration.

Girl Crush: Ludivine Poiblanc

Girl Crush: Ludivine Poiblanc

Ludivine Poiblanc3It’s no coincidence that I’m making a post about one of my ultimate girl crushes, Ludivine Poiblanc, a day after Nowness released the Philophiles video (Phoebe fangirls, in other words) and even though she’s not in it, Ludivine is most probably the biggest, most famous Philophile in the world. Previous fashion editor at Vogue Paris, current freelance stylist and editor at large at Interview magazine; Ludivine celebrates the clean Céline style with her subdued Parisian grace wherever she goes. I can’t think of a better style inspiration for this fall.

Power Of Stripe

Power Of Stripe

The Fashion MedleyStriped bodycon dress Forever21 (very similar here & here) // grey ribbed long knit cardigan Zara (similar here & here) // black Nike Roshe Run (get here & here or similar style here)

Last Halloween contributed to my wardrobe with a pair of American Apparel disco pants which I fooled myself into buying as a wardrobe staple that I’d eventually keep on wearing, didn’t work out. Not because the pants are ugly or uncomforable or anything, it’s just not a suitable style for me (big ass + shiny pants = not a good equation). This year’s obligatory costume purchase was this dress (see how I subtly choose costumes that force me to buy clothing instead of, well, costumes) and as of day 1 I’m already ahead of last year in terms of purchase justification.

Off The Shoulder, On Your Finger

Off The Shoulder, On Your Finger

Saja Wedding 2015 Bridal CollectionSaja Bridal 2015

The first ever wedding dress of which I saved the picture on my desktop for “future reference” was an off the shoulder Alberta Ferretti gown. Before that I had no interest in anything bridal related and I even thought I hated all wedding gowns but that gem pulled me into this multi billion industry of single day parties. Now, more than 10 years later, off the shoulder gowns are making a dramatic comeback in so many shapes, so many fabrics, so many styles but all oh so very beautiful.

From bohemian to glamourous, contemporary to minimal, theatrical to austere – I personally paired the most beautiful off the shoulder wedding gowns with exquisite engagement and wedding rings from leading fine jewelry manufacturer Anjolee. Be a dreamy bride in 2015 with THE wedding dress and the perfect jewelry to go with it: let it be a ring or another stunner like this Diamond Tennis Bracelet. Wedding Wednesdays in full flow!

Platinum Challenge

Platinum Challenge

The Fashion Medley | Platinum ChallengeOk first of all I know that the hair above is beyond platinum but it was so freakin beautiful that I had to put it here. Second of all, I’ve never wanted to do anything with my hair more than I want to dye it platinum blonde right now. I hardly believe that it would work on me; a wheat skinned girl with black brows, high cheekbones and a big nose, most probably I’d look just as bad as I did last Halloween with the “Sandy” wig. But I still want to give it a try, so so bad. Two things holding me back: 1) the effort and money that will go into dyeing it every 2 weeks (I’m extremely lazy when it comes to hair) 2) my non-dyed silky hair will be ruined forever.

Have you tried it? Do you have any comments or recommendations? Should I give it a go?
