JLo has stepped back out on the red carpet since her split from husband Marc Anthony showing she's still got it in a stylish Camilla and Marc dress. The diva chose the youthful and hot Protean dress fresh from their RAFW Resort 2011 collection to wear to the iHeartRadio festival in Vegas. She paired this white and neon pink fitted dress with Jimmy Choo Klin peep-toe dazzlers. Loving this ultra modern dress and the hype for our Aussie brother/sister duo!
Ladies, ever wished that we got the Hollywood treatment here in Aus or even at home? Ever wanted a brush that doesn’t move your eyelid but instead actually glides your shadow on? Well international Aussie makeup artist to the stars Rae Morris has answered our prayers, sharing her successful secrets with the world.
On Friday night I was lucky enough to attend the launch of Rae's divine new brush collection and preview its magic. Her new dream brushes are eco-friendly, USA PETA approved, easy-to-use, and soft as silk. She used to cut her old $400 brushes to suit her, that's why each brush is handmade and custom designed to do the work for you, allowing precision detailing and blending in one - plus they're magnetic! It was an evening of fun, bubbly and beauty with Rae taking time to reveal her tricks of the trade and showing us herself how these gems work.
Already being used by makeup artists internationally, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime for us everyday girls. You can create any look imaginable with absolute ease and feel like you're ready to walk that red carpet at any time of day! I'm already lusting after my own set - Glam necessities for any makeup case and worth every penny! You can pre-order them here from Rae's website.

"To me this is about more than makeup, it's about how you feel about yourself, so it's important not to hold anything back - so i've built all my secrets into this collection. I hope these brushes make you feel as good on the inside as I know they will make you look on the outside."

Aussie designers Sass & Bide had all of us awaiting their iconic styles at LFW, however once the models hit the catwalk Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke surprised us all. In an intriguing turn of events it seems their latest Spring 2012 collection embraced minimalist principles and simpler silhouettes, very unlike their previous piled-on collections. It was a neon and futuristic flavour that gave an ere of Aztec tribal inspiration with vinyls, metallic leathers, beading, silks, taffetas and neoprene all making an appearance. There were elements of their old iconic aesthetics however their new approach felt fresh, light and ultra modern. It was a show of opposing forces at its greatest.

It was a night of true Hollywood glitz and glamour when TV's finest stepped out to celebrate the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre tonight. The ladies of the small screen definitely delivered in stunning gowns that dazzled under the red carpet lights and left photographers wanting more. We saw muted dresses that were rich in lace and sparkling embellishments, really letting the ladies show off their on-trend style. While others stole a different approach with sequinned dark masterpieces, mimicking the designer runway that glittered on the red carpet. However, it seemed the trend colour of the night was red that had the red carpet brimming with gorgeous vibrant gowns. Here are some of my favourites:

To celebrate the beautiful trans-seasonal weather we've been having I could finally break out one of my favourite trenches that's been hiding under all the rain and cold! Perfect for having that extra shield from the chill while also letting you bask in the sunshine. It was a picturesque Spring day for enjoying the outdoors and I was taking full advantage of finally leaving winter behind.

Not only was my VFNO filled with Mulberry Magic, but through my very own freebie Dior manicure I got a chance to try out the fabulous and recently released Dior limited edition polish shade called Blue Denim. This Blue Tie nail collection first debuted on the Dior Autumn/Winter 2011 runway, it's sister is called Tuxedo in a striking midnight blue. Seeing as colour-blocking is all we're talking about this Spring/Summer season I thought for now brighter is better. Blue Denim is a gorgeous blue that's not too bright, classy, easy to apply and perfect for this season. Already it matches my brights for Spring and has gotten alot of street attention. It's love at first try!
Vogue's Fashion Night Out was a hit, with new-to-Australia Mulberry proving to everyone that they were the place to be! Pulling out all the stops with delicious toadstool cupcakes, whimsical face painting, bubbly berry mojitos and to die for sparkling juices. It was a one stop shop that had you surrounded by fantasy, fun and luscious leathers. Mulberry truly delivered the ultimate gift for the night - stunning goodie bags! A gorgeous tote bag straight from London Fashion Week made especially for us Aussies which concealed a darling fox cookie, cupcake, mask and cute stickers. Plus with stylish celebrities like Miranda Otto and Pia Miranda stopping by Mulberry was definitely one of the 'it' destinations for the night!

I was on-site for the start of 30 Days of Fashion and Beauty and to celebrate Revlon teamed up with Cosmopolitan magazine to show us everything we need to know for this season! There were bright lips, bright nails, bright designs and bright accessories that lit up the colour-filled runway. Ladies, get ready to break out those bold brights this season because it's all colours on deck. After an introduction from Cosmopolitan fashion editor Nicole Adolphe and international makeup artist Elsa Morgan, we saw Revlon looks to rival major makeup houses. With the models dressed in Dotti and Seduce styles mirroring the RAFW runway, we learnt that the it-colour for nails is Revlon Top Speed's Peachy 405 worn by Nicole herself for the event! It was runway fashion for the everyday girl - sexy, affordable and chic. Shoes and bags were by Siren, Lipstick and Olga Berg. Cosmo and Revlon really hit it out of the park with this show!
