Andrew Ashton of LaPosh Styles Fashion Week

In Fashion, Trends on September 13, 2010 at 2:31 pm

The main focus of a fashion show is always the garments.  From exaggerated shoulders to sequined military jackets, we are all dying to see what will be next on the runways.  As important as the clothes, however, are the other components that make up a look.

If a model were to step into the spotlight with sloppy, untouched hair, this could easily disrupt the beauty of her dress.  From Paris to New York, all collections must have coordinating hairstyles.  Thankfully, Tampa Bay has Andrew Ashton.

Of LaPosh Salon, Andrew Ashton is the magic behind the beautiful models of Tampa Bay.  Soft curls with that pink lace top, edgy volume for the black leather piece, sophisticated chignon for the chic, tailored dress.  Andrew can achieve any look for any design.

The runway extravaganza for Tampa Bay will soon be upon us.  As you study each garment with delight and awe, do not forget to take notice of the hair, styled with perfection by Andrew Ashton of LaPosh. Also, catch Andrew and his team on Studio 10 this Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 10am. They’ll be taking runway hair and make-up to every day wear!

Windows to the Soul: Couture Style!

In Trends on July 22, 2010 at 12:06 pm

If those fabulous baby blues (or browns) truly are the windows to the soul, why would you ever neglect them when making fashion choices?  I was recently reminded of the importance of eye fashion when I noticed a beautiful co-worker sporting bold and unique colors each and every day.  From deep amethyst to seafoam green, this young woman knows exactly how to transform her “windows” into a couture boutique entrance.

Many women tend to think a bit too conservatively with regard to eye make-up, fearing that bright colors may give the essence of a clown.  Au contrair!  Nothing is sexier than a bright plum or shocking aqua to draw attention to those peepers.

While some runway looks may be a bit over-the-top, they can be used for inspiration. You may not wish to look as cartoon-like as this Dior model, but that does not mean you should shy away from bright pink shadow.  Why not try some false lashes to enhance things a little?  The key is determining the difference between bold and ridiculous and dancing right on the edge.

For this peacock inspired look, the timid may use a more subtle false lash.  If you dare, go ahead and rock the spotted one!  Just keep the colorful shadow to the eye area only, and you will have a look of perfection appropriate for everyday use.

This look is absolutely perfect.  Resembling an exotic princess, the model wears metallic jewel tones on her eyes.  The look is vibrant and stunning, yet realistic.  With glowing skin and sparkling pink lips, a beauty choice such as this will surely bring out the princess within.

Whether your style is ultra feminine or a bit more edgy, make sure you don’t allow those big sparkling eyes to leave the house undressed.

Lip Service

In Designers, Fashion, Updates on May 3, 2010 at 9:55 pm

Tom Ford— former Gucci designer, perfumer, and auspicious director- with his first film debut “A Single Man” in 2009–has launched his new Private Blend Lip Color Collection. Is there anything Tom can’t do?

The Private Blend Lip Collection will be his interpretation of 12 classic colors re-imagined in a “modern and authoritative way.” The shades range from a bare nude to a bright cherry red. This luxurious lipstick is formulated with exotic ingredients like soja seed extract and Brazilian murumuru butter (sounds exotic enough to me!), these are some of the key ingredients that give it a creamy texture and smooth application.

Something tells me history is going to repeat itself, the launch of the Tom Ford Estee Lauder Collection in 2005 drew record-breaking crowds to the Saks flagship in NYC and needless to say the limited edition make-up quickly sold out as well. The chic exterior of The Private Collection Lip Collection is enough to draw any girl into a Tom Ford cosmetics counter- it comes in an ivory case with gold details and it’s like a shiny toy that I have to get my hands on.

The Private Blend Lip Collection will be available stateside on June 1st at Neiman Marcus, Saks and Bergdorf Goodman. What’s the price to pay for luxurious lips? $45 a tube–to some a splurge but well worth it if it’s within your fashion budget.
