TomFordRefinery Tom Ford Black Orchid Nail Polish, Lipstick & Perfume

We wrote about Tom Ford’s upcoming nailpolish release a while back and now with the official images we see it’s being packaged as a “Black Orchid” gift set with lipstick and a solid perfume. If you know someone who’s a packaging/status fiend then you can knock her off your gift list with this item. Priced at $140, it will sell in the United States at Neiman’s and Saks. Via Refinery. On a nail polish note, while visiting Valley spa a couple weeks back for a manicure with star nail technician, Maki, she revealed that she was part of the team that handled the manicures for Tom Ford’s super-secret ruway show! In keeping with the theme of personalizing the fashion choices to reflect the person wearing the clothes, a different color polish was used with each model. Perhaps a hint that we can expect lots more in the nail polish category from Mr. Ford?

What is it about recent Chanel ads in which everyone comes off kind of stiff and forced….even when directed by one of the greatest directors alive??

I remember reaching  for  this intriguing auburn almost burgundy bottle  on my mom’s vanity as a little girl, I was  not supposed to not touch it. However on occasion before she would leave I would get a little spritz on my hand. As I  got older the mystery of this bottle was explained. It was called Opium by Yves Saint -Laurent. Worn my so many women in my family it was like a signature. Today Yves Saint-Laurent  Parfums Launches an updated version of the 1978 cult  favorite with a launch party that promises to outdo the famed 1978 at Studio 54  where icons like grace Jones( with Egon Von Furstenberg) , Nan Kempner, YSL himself (above) attended. In the meantime enjoy a preview of the guests and festivities at whatisyouropim.com

 Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Launch Party

The dress code was’ stylish attire’ with mask required and the NYC crowd  did not disappoint. With the grand and decadent background of the Angel Orensanz , YSL  launched their Parisienne scent last night.  The description of the scent being heavy in rose notes I expected it to be similar to this , nonetheless as  much as I was not floored.  Parisienne has a very feminine  and floral quality that , coupled with the exquisite packaging the still revered face of Kate Moss ,could make it  the next “it” scent. If such a phenomenon still happens… On the next page check out what caught our eye.
