Givenchy Trip to Paris

Paris is always a good idea, right? Specially when it comes with a Givenchy beauty launch and a crew of lovely ladies. In the early hours of Monday we took the Eurostar to Paris… we were greeted by the most gorgeous day (how I love a sunny Paris, oui) and checked in at The Peninsula Hotel!

We then made our way to the Kléber terrace to catch a bit of sunlight and a glass of rosé, bien sûr! Later in the day I had my photoshoot with Givenchy for their amazing new products (the results you see it here!).

Surely, The New Velvet Matissime was all inspired by the feel of velvet.  Nicolas Degennes made sure that the product would reflect and absorb light. He got it right! This new foundation guarantees velvety skin all day long, even and huge increase in self-confidence. In order to achieve such a great result, Givenchy obviously had to pick the finest ingredients of Nature and combine them with technology

The Oil of the Pharaohs which was used in ancient Egypt as a universal remedy was selected because of its purifying virtues. The liquid foundation has extracts of cinnamon, burnet and ginger and they all basically boost up that lovely mattifying effect that helps to refine the skin texture and also, tighten pores. The velvety, and the slight burring effects are formed because of the airy silica microbeads which absorb moisture and excess sebum. Last but not least, the pigments! They are covered with amino acids that create an even skin tone that incredibly lasts throughout the day! 

Givenchy launches the first blush with emotional shades which boost up facial expression! The new Prisme Blush is definitely for women with a strong character. It brings an attractive/charming flush to our cheeks without losing the sense of strong femininity

The 8 emotional shades are named as: Passion, Love, Spice, Rite, Spirit, Romantic, Wild and Tender. The palest pearly shade can also be used as a base or as a highlighter that spots areas of the face that naturally gets the light. It’s very simple to be applied guys.. With a brushstroke, it imprints new light and new volume on the face. 

Thank you Givenchy for this amazing trip and a bientôt! Camila x

Looks

Sport Chic Wear

We’ve come to the first days of Spring – can you imagine? Still London is so grey and the trees outside are naked dressed without a single leaf. Well peers, welcome to this crazy crazy world! Anyways, seems only right to be sharing a quite colourful look that I shot for a campaign with Marc Cain. (Who knows this look can make up for this grey spring day?)

The idea was for me to style a piece from their spring/summer collection with an active wear. Maaaaan, this was like giving me a candy – it just felt so right since my style is pretty much this on a day to day basis. I love love to mix the high-low and active wear is so comfortable to wear.

I am wearing a full outfit from Marc Cain, the striped colourful dress (here), with a gilet (similar here), bag (similar here) shoes (similar here). Happy spring days!

Trends

Slouchy Boots

Paris, the last city of fashion month, offered a great emphasis on quite luxurious and very 80’s boots collections. The new boot in town – the slouchy boot – was actually seen in nearly every outfit at Saint Laurent. Even Rihanna got a pair of the crystal version one, they were outstanding! The “new” trend was also very present at Isabel Marant, Vanessa Seward and Maison Margiela.

Now we know that – the slouchy boots are officially BACK! They are beautiful, aren’t them? In the section of the knee height boots, I was impressed by the ones from Saint Laurent. They really got everyone’s attention during the catwalk as the models were passing by. 

John Galliano (with Maison Margiela) did an absolutely great job also with the come back of the slouchy-on-the-ankle boots with a heel! The classic suede boots are still in my opinion the best ankle boots of the season. Everyone needs a pair of ankle boots, or two, in their winter wardrobe, isn’t that true?
