Perfect wing tip eye

February 27, 2013


I’m really into the wing tip eye these days.  It’s not a new look by any means but one that has been a consistent beauty trend over time and that I have seen all over the AW13 runways. For me, the key to success to achieve the perfect wing tip eye is all in the choice of liquid eyeliner. YSL’s Shocking False Lash Effect Eyeliner is my choice!  A great guide below I found on how to use this wonderful bold felt-tip pen to achieve this look easily and with perfection time and time again.

Oscars 2013 Trend: Sparkle

Monique Lhuillier strapless dress

 Alexander McQueen lilac organza embroidered gown

There were no fashion faux pas at this year's Oscars.  All beautiful (and trend alert: embellished) muted colored dresses (minus the stunning red Valentino on Jennifer Aniston).  With designer's vying to dress the Oscar attendees and stylists looking to get the very best from designers, it was a win-win this year with plentiful sparkle for all!

London Fashion Week AW13 Recap

February 23, 2013


I finally had the time to sit down and digest all of London Fashion Week to share with you!  My first time covering LFW officially for Mouthful of Style was such a great experience.  I have worked fashion shows and backstage many times in my career in the industry and now covering them as well as a fashion blogger adds even more to my overall experience. For one thing, I was able to see and appreciate the full production of the shows from start to finish.  When you work a show these parts can get overlooked as you are dashing around to make sure all is in place when the clock hits time. That being said, below are my favorite show looks of the week and a few pictures I snapped from backstage and the runways.  Enjoy!

Antonio Berardi

Emilio de la Morena

Tom Ford (is back on the runways!)

Model of the moment, Cara Delevingne 

Backstage beauty

P.S.  I want to dedicate this post to one of my best friends on her wedding day.  Sending you the biggest kiss and a lifetime of happiness to you both!

Balthazar London Opening

February 20, 2013



Balthazar is opening in London's Covent Garden this week!  Perfect timing with the closing of yet another fabulous London Fashion Week.  I haven't been this excited about a restaurant opening since, well, I've been in London really that I decided it needed its own post.  The famous NYC eatery was one of my personal favorite Sunday brunch hangouts while I was living in NYC.  Officially a French brasserie with the best Salad Nicoise and Eggs Benedict I've ever had, make sure to check out the London version here and make a reservation now as the wait list is already filling up!
