ONE CAN ONLY DREAM

A lingerie label which is not a secret anymore.

I stumbled upon Oysho stores on my old trip to Barcelona, and I instantly fell in love with the brand. Too bad, even though they already have more than 400 stores around the world, this (first started as) lingerie label, have no sign of opening in Indonesia. Or…are they?

A part of Inditex Group (yes, Zara and all), Oysho also provide more than just underwear. I love their basic & casual (home) clothing that feels so comfy to the max, and they branched out to swimsuit as well.

As much as I hate looking at most lingerie ads for being too over sexy and men oriented (sorry guys, no offense), Oysho’s is just perfect. They just scream sexy without overdoing it and they look so pretty and comfortable, you want to slip them on right away. Just check out Jessica Stam as the face of Oysho’s Spring Summer 2013 campaign, and see if you agree with me.

 

MISS LAWRENCE

First Oscar and first ad campaign as the face of Miss Dior.

Not bad for a 22 years old actress, right? While the ads will be shown worldwide in prints by April 2013, thanks to Dior Indonesia, I got to share these stunning pictures of her.

Shown with Miss Dior bags, she wears designs from Spring RTW collection by none other than Raf Simons, current Dior Creative Director. 

LIKE MOTHER … LIKE DAUGHTER?

Following her late mother’s footsteps, Dannielynn Birkhead, daughter of Anna Nicole Smith will front the new childrenwear campaign for Guess. 

She does look a lot like Anna who fronted the Guess Campaign in 1992. Even Guess creative director, Paul Marciano said in a statement “Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on set.”

Now 6 years old, this is her first modeling job as the new face of Guess Kids for Spring 2013 campaign. And just like her late mother who created controversy, parenting experts are already concerned about Dannielynn’s father (Larry Birkhead) decision’s to put her into the limelight since such a young age. Well, what do you think?

GOING BARE OR BEAR?

Celebrities nowadays are more daring to go bare without makeup for their everyday look. After all, they have all the chances in the world to be gorgeous on the set or red carpet, so why bother.

But, these 3 celebs decided to not just ditched their makeup to go to the nearest grocery store, but they posed for celebrities photographer, Rankin, for a new campaign for BBC Children In Need BearFaced Campaign. It is a campaign that encourages women in the UK to go makeup free on November 9, 2012 to help raise money for disadvantaged children. Heidi Klum, Caroline Flack and Louise Redknapp, each spotted with tiny bear paw print on their cheek to show their supports for children in need. Indeed, it is a really simple way to raise money for a great cause.

IT’S NOT COOL TO BE CRUEL

In this case, it’s not pretty if you’re being cruel to animals.

Have you ever imagine that the lipsticks we’re using were actually made from ladybug’s shell or the shimmer you’re applying is made possible by fish scales? That’s nothing compared to what I’ve seen through investigation video titled “The Ugly Truth” shown during the launch of Cruelty Free Campaign by The Body Shop Indonesia this morning.

Animal testing for the sake of our cosmetics is really not cool. It’s cruel. In the video shown, thank God my pics above are kind of blurred so you can’t see how the animals like mice and rabbits are suffering for the sake of our beauty products. According to Cruelty Free International, over 80% of countries across the world are still doing animal testing for cosmetics. Therefore, together with The Body Shop, they are committed to this cause and working together to achieve a worldwide ban on animal testing. As we all know, one of The Body Shop 5 values is “Against Animal Testing”. Both are now doing it with our help as customers, to sign the pledge in The Body Shop’s stores around the world, including Indonesia. “We hope that slowly, every region in the world will adapt this Cruelty Free campaign. And based on our experience, customer’s involvement and commitment will be heard more. The Body Shop has been doing “against animal testing” since 1996,” said Rika Anggraini, Corporate Social & Environmental Values Manager The Body Shop Indonesia.

Rika later explained that The Body Shop has been using a more reliable non-animal methods for products testing. “We’re using EPISKIN, it’s a synthetic human skin that react almost the same like our skin. We use them for ingredient test before the product developed and allergic test after the product has developed. It is more expensive, but no animals were involved at all.”

To kick off this campaign in Indonesia, local actresses and model, Rachel Amanda, Tya Ariestya and Laura Muljadi which are known as The Body Shop’s loyal customers since the Brit’s brand entered Indonesia, were signing the pledge at the event in Hotel Mulia, Jakarta, Indonesia. You can also help by dropping by to your nearest The Body Shop store and sign the pledge and leave your name and email. Or, simply log in to http://www.thebodyshop.co.id/ starting tomorrow.

At the same event, The Body Shop Indonesia also launched 100% Cruelty Free Makeup Collection by Lily Cole. Named the first ever global brand ambassador, Lily collaborated with The Body Shop for this lineup which includes lip shine, radiance primer, eyeliner, duo lip and cheek called dome, shimmer cubes and puff on radiance. Pretty in pink packaging, bright colors (many in purple, Lily’s favorite color) and shimmer that comes from mineral mica, not clam shells.

Being an eyeliner kind of gal, my favorite product from this line is the liquid eyeliner. Smudge to make smoky eyes look more natural, or leave the line straight. This limited edition collection will be available in selected The Body Shop Indonesia stores, starting tomorrow. And stay tune, cause this line will grace the runways in Jakarta Fashion Week, starting November 3, 2012 in Plaza Senayan, Jakarta, Indonesia.
