Tom Ford Wisdom

“Every woman needs a perfectly cut, tailored suit for day; a black cocktail dress; a smoking; a perfect pair of pumps with high heels. The most important key to being well dressed, however, is for a woman to wear something that suits her style and body shape. A woman who is confident and knows what looks best will always look great.”

I love Tom Ford. After I saw his Visionaries documentary on OWN, my admiration for him grew even more. The film has made its way online, a definite must-watch for creative types. He also directed, produced and co-wrote ‘A Single Man’, an acclaimed film with Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.

Jeong Ae Ree For Lianhe Zaobao Newspaper


Master in Music and Soprano from Korea Jeong Ae Ree is working on a show which will be performed at The Esplanade.  This image above taken by Zurina Bryant [and makeup by Norah] was done specifically for the marketing materials of Ae Ree’s much anticipated performance in Singapore.  This note/image was published on July 12, 2011 in Lianhe Zaobao newspaper.  I can’t read the article but am VERY excited to share this!

SAG Awards Best

Without a shadow of a doubt, Natalie Portman looked radiant in Azzaro and Tiffany jewelry. Flawless skin, hair, makeup, gorgeous gown, the ensemble looked effortless -although I am sure it was not! She wore it with such elegance and class.

According to the resourceful Temptalia, makeup artist Eileen Kastner-Delago created a look inspired by “Old Hollywood with a modern twist” for Portman. “I wanted to give her dewy, glowing skin and slightly smokey eyes with a natural lip color,” said Kastner-Delago.  Dior beauty was pretty much what was used on Natalie Portman face and her hair was styled by Orlando Pita. Bellisima!

Daily Inspiration

I love old Hollywood. Give me Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Lucille Ball, Marlene Dietrich, all timeless and unique!

“I am not funny. My writers were funny. My directors were funny. The situations were funny…What I am is brave. I have never been scared. Not when I did movies, certainly not when I was a model, and not when I did I Love Lucy.”
