DIOR’S GOLDEN GIRL: CHARLIZE THERON!

Shooting the latest campaign for Christian Dior’s fragrance, J’Adore, Charlize Theron is simply ethereal!  The actress, 41, runs through the rain and frolics into the sun-light sea while wearing an exquisite gold evening gown.  The campaign was shot by filmmaker, Jean-Baptiste Mondino. “With every film, the House of Dior wanted to make this woman evolve, and understand her role in the world, defining a rapport with luxury,” the director shares.  This film follows the previous campaign, in which Charlize is seen climbing towards “elsewhere” — never reaching her true destination.  For behind-the-scenes access to previous J’Adore film shoots, check out the “Unexpected” interview with Peter Lindbergh.

 

 

TREND ALERT: “ALABASTER GLAMOUR”

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

WARNING: Embargoed for publication until 00:00:01 on 09/02/2016It seems that Hollywood’s leading ladies have been turning in their (faux) tans, in favor of elegant, alabaster skin.  Actresses such as Renee Zellweger, Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth Debicki, Christina Hendricks (pictured from left to right), as well as iconic beauties, Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman, and Charlize Theron, have all heralded the pale-pallor, often associated with the glamorous stars of black and white cinema.  Why?  First of all, its about the appearance of youth:  everyone knows that the sun causes visible signs of aging.  Secondly, we suspect that tans have simply become too accessible.  After all, now anyone can get a “vacation in a bottle,” and tanned skin has simply become common and even gaudy.  Just look at most reality television show stars.

According to Dr. Sue Ann Wee of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York, symptoms of sun damage skin also include, coarse skin texture, wrinkles, pigmentation, telangiectasias (spider veins), and laxity.  Aside from staying out of the sun, what can an Undercover Agent do to reverse the damage?  According to the good doctor, there are many viable options to help turn back the clock and deliver a complexion that looks like it was sitting in the shade all summer long.   There are many over-the-counter brightening and anti-pigment products available on the market, as well as pearly skin-brightening primers and illuminating cosmetics.  But when you need something more aggressive, Dr. Wee suggests:

  • Microneedling (low-tech, yet effective — and great for those who are seeking a more “natural” treatment)
  • Clear + Brilliant laser (a gentle laser with no downtime)
  • Lumecca IPL (a brand new light treatment that dramatically improves brown age spots while also reducing red vessels)
  • Chemical Peels (they work by exfoliating or removing the top layers of the skin and rejuvenating the layers underneath)
  • Fraxel (the big gun that totally transforms the skin)

 

AWARD SEASON’S FINALE!

Monday, February 29th, 2016

ReVealingOn Sunday night, some of Hollywood’s leading ladies took the plunge in stunning, decolleté-baring, gowns, as Awards Season finally drew to a close.  A-listers, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, and Brie Larson led the trend, which was quickly followed by Saoirse Ronan, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, and Margot Robbie.

Best Actress winner, Larson, shined in a ruffled blue Gucci “illusion” gown, adorned with a sparkly belt.  Blanchett’s ethereal look, created by Armani Privé, was intricately embellished with delicate, feathered, flowers.  Theron and Lawrence‘s gowns, by Dior Haute Couture, were equally show-stoppers.   Thank goodness there were no wardrobe malfunctions here.
