This little lady is taking the glossy pages, the runways and social media by storm, and is well on her way to becoming the next Kate Moss.
She has the ability to incarnate any different type of woman for the fashion brands. Whether it’s rock n’ roll, sweet and sexy or classic chic Cara has a chameleon-like way of changing her aura to fit the role she’s in. She owns the look, regardless if its a red carpet event, a lingerie ad campaign or her own life.

While le jour de la Saint-Valentin might be coming to the city of love, the action doesn’t have to end there – as there’s plenty going on in the capital this month. We’ve got some highlights for you…
I am thrilled to present a Paris Fashion Week haute couture show review from the darling and dashing makeup artist Charles Gillman, a British expat who has been making magic in Paris for three years now. I was lucky to get to work with him in a wedding modeling shoot and on my own Sweet Life in Paris video. And now he has been so kind as to lend his “plume” to Prête-Moi Paris for an article on Defined Moment’s Spring-Summer 2014 couture collection.
And without Further ado!

Defined moment’s show – 22nd January 2014
This winter I’m a makeup artist in hibernation, I’d spent most days nipping out to see clients and then whipping back home to spend my life by the Nespresso machine, as well as gluing my eyes to my laptop.

I hope you sparkle, I
hope you have fun,
I hope your glass is raised with friends
and I hope when it’s done,
someone has kissed you
and wished you
the warmest of cheers,
because you all deserve the bestest,
With love, from Paris
I was invited to join a fun and delightful tour with a new company called Wonderful Time. They were in the final stages of testing their tours, and asked me to join a group (thanks to Pamela of francophilia who put me in touch with them, and who joined me on the tour) for a tour of Coco. THE Coco.
Another fashion week whizzed by before I had time to catch my breath.
I didn’t have the time or energy to get to a lot of shows this season, but I did get to see Hexa by Kuho again, and snagged an interview with the designer afterwards, thanks to my friend Ko Kok who is an all-things-camera man (photography, video etc…).
Highlights from the show were : Continue reading
What better combo is there than fun and pretty things to wear and cupcakes? Ok, I COULD think of a few other combinations that are even more fabulous, but this one is up in the top ten list! Mlle Olivia Cummings of Cleopatra’s Bling hosted a private sale recently at the Sugar Daze cupcake shop in the 9th.
