Prada's New Fragrance is Pure "Candy".

In September, Prada will be debuting a new girly-looking fragrance with a name to match: Candy. The illustration on the box is more Miu Miu than Prada, since the face of that brand—Hailee Steinfeld—is 14-years-old. (We also can't imagine the same woman who might buy this bag picking it off the counter, but hey.) José Manuel Albesa, the chief brand officer of Prada's scent licensee Puig, tells WWD: "This scent is more feminine and more excessive than past launches. It has an explosion of joie de vivre that is quite unique for us, and uses a lot more color, including an outer packaging with a drawing.”

The Royals Touch Down in LA!

As you probably might have guessed, I have a little but of an obsession with Kate Middleton. She is so graceful and beautiful, and her fashion taste is honestly impeccable. The Royals touched down in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon, greeted by the governor, and a few other "important" people. The Duchess of Cambridge was seen in a pale lavender short sleeved dress by Roksanda Illinic and her by now familiar sheer hose and nude L.K. Bennett heels. The couple is scheduled to go to a variety of meetings and even a polo match in Santa Barbara today, and are staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where they will be staying until Sunday.

Behind the Scenes at the Chanel Couture Show

In case it wasn’t clear from the glistening black backdrop and the neon-lit replica of the Place Vendôme that set the stage for last night’s Chanel Couture presentation, a dramatic, evening-inspired theme helped guide the beauty look created by the house’s creative director of makeup, Peter Philips. “Karl mentioned the masculine/feminine silhouette, the fact that we were going to do a show at night—and the flashlight shoes,” Philips elaborated, pointing out the boot tips that glowed with violet light. “That’s where the veil/burglar idea came from.” He meant the lace overlays that coiffing star Sam McKnight placed across models’ eyes and secured in a pinned-down mass of coiled strands behind each ear.

Covered as they were, Philips’ still focused on lids seen through the latticework of the makeshift masks. After creating a base with Chanel Vitalumière Aqua foundation, Philips added a velvety peach cheek using Chanel’s new Joues Contraste blush in Rose Ecrin. Then he broke out his big launch for fall, the delectably textured Illusion d’Ombre eye shadow in Mirifique, “a pitch black with starlight sparkles,” he described of the precise color that he took across lids and underneath the lower lash line in a large elongated shape, “for eyes that see in the dark.” Finishing touches came in the form of Chanel Le Vernis in Blue Satin, a timeless dark navy lacquer, and a slick of Rouge Allure Velvet in La Furtive, a creamy shade of sandy pink—”perfect for stealing kisses,” Philips joked.

Emma Watson for Harper's Bazaar UK, August 2011

Friday, July 01, 2011
Once again, Emma is looking super fab (and goth-ish?!) in the newest issue of one of the most beautiful magazines in the world. The magazine photographed Watson as her good-girl self, styled in a white wardrobe, and as her gothic alter ego, sporting vampy all-black dresses and a mysterious dark brown wig. Check out H.B.'s UK site to read more about it!
