IFTA’s Fashion… Or Lack of….

So one of the most glamorous events in the Irish film industry is upon us tonight and I’ve very politely taken the time to scowl through dresses & tuxes to find my BEST & WORST dressed! Although for me fashion is something that only you yourself can define….. Im going to totally contradict myself… The red carpet at the IFTAs was full of glamour, colour, sparkles & velvet…… Yes… I said Velvet…. I KNOW. Unfortunately I think a lot of our lovely faces of Ireland were given some boring, safe & downright BAD Advice tonight about their Red Carpet ensemble. However their must be a winner of WORST DRESSED & unfortunately for me…. That winner was……. Blathnaid ni Chofaigh! Sorry B but that wrap dress wrapped all the wrong areas!

And for my best dressed? It was a close call…..(Of not much) but I still couldn’t decide between 2? So my BEST DRESSED ladies of the IFTA’s are…….

ImageKathryn Thomas for this sophisticated take on a classic black dress! And also actress Annette Flynn ( I kept calling her Lynette! Aca- Awkward!)

Anette rocks a classic in this black & nude lace ensemble & for the the best dressed of the classic(Or safe) dresses! She’s also rocking Givenchy Couture on the lips! Le Rouge number 306 or Carmin Escarpin!

And last but certainly not least…. Best dressed Male!!! (There’s no point in having a worst dressed male section, because lets face it… Who cares!) And the BEST DRESSED MALE goes to……

BRESSIE! Because… Well lets face it….. He could’ve rocked up in trakkies & still won!

What did we think of the fashion at the IFTA’s disappointed like me? Or think Im off my rocker?

Givenchy to Defy with Colour & Couture!

‘Le Rouge Givenchy, a magnetic rendez-vous between leather and pure color where fashion and beauty collide… 
For the first time, Givenchy focuses all its skill and expertise in high qu ality leather goods on designing a lipstick like a Couture accessory.

More than a lipstick…Givenchy creates an unprecedented Couture object of desire that envelops the lips with intense colour in one stroke for a sensuously mat finish.’

This is how Givenchy describes their latest creation, Le Rouge. It’s UK & Ireland collection consists of 12 colours, ranging from nude to a deep sensual red.

Le Rouge Swatches solo

In it’s usual way Givenchy has managed to seamlessly weave cosmetics & couture together to make something of a chic accessory. However, this time they have really outdone themselves….. The packaging is like a couture piece straight off Tisci’s catwalk. A salmac (a rare type of fused metal that Ricardo Tisci uses for his buckles, jewelery & handbag claps from) studded inspired piece wrapped in a luxurious soft lamb leather. Now I hear you just glazing over the leather statement, but this is definitely something to be sniffed at….. As in when you get your hands on yours, smell it!

Le Rouge Close Up

Not only does the packaging smell amazing, now smell the lipstick itself, rich in colour, & castor oil free, the lipstick smells of soft blueberry. And to front the campaign? Well the lovely Liv Tyler has been snubbed by Givenchy as the face, with them opting for a more couture choice, muse & friend of Tisci himself Mariacarla Broscono. Maricarla has been featured in many high fashion houses collections & catwalks and is most known for her hair, walk & eyes, and is more recently known for being the face of Givenchys Dahlia Noir fragrance, & also appearing in their SS13 campaign with her 4 month old baby! Oh to be a model!!!

Le Rouge Visual

And thats not all, Givenchy have discontinued their fabulous Vernis Please! nail polish range only to be replaced by a new more couture range… Le Vernis. And their will be a matching Lipstick in the Le Rouge range.

Although I wouldn’t wait until then, these lippys have been on demand & have already had waiting lists across the UK & Ireland, so get yours soon!
