The Statement Piece:
The little leather dress
Thanks to Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn, the Little Black Dress will always be an imperative addition to every woman’s closet, but for SS13, it has been given a modern twist, as designers recreate it in leather. The LLD is as polished as the original, but has so much more attitude. Teamed with a black jacket and pumps it is a ladylike staple, but worn with an armful of bracelets, a denim jacket and simple sandals, it offers something far cooler.
The Beauty Tip:
Rodin Olio Lusso
This innovative facial oil reached cult status when fashion stylist Linda Rodin handed out bottles of it to models and makeup artists backstage at New York Fashion Week, after creating it in her bathroom. A pioneering blend of essential oils that soothe and hydrate, it’s no wonder this luxurious product has become a modern classic.credits
