Miranda Kerr on the 5 Beauty Rules Every Aussie Girl Know

If the French are known for their cult pharmacy products, and Koreans are known for their 16-step regimens, then Australians are known for their laid-back, holistic approach to beauty. “Australians really like that clean, healthy, fresh skin, and slightly underdone tousled hair,” says supermodel Miranda Kerr, who was born in Sydney and spent her childhood in Gunnedah, a town in the state of New South Wales. “[We] embrace natural beauty. And I feel like that’s reflective of the active lifestyle and being [outdoors].”

While she may be based in Los Angeles these days, Kerr—whose own skincare line, Kora Organics, launches in Sephora stores this week—is still an Aussie girl at heart. “I definitely miss the beaches and the fresh air.” At the heart of the model’s regimen is a 360-degree lifestyle approach to self-care that starts from the inside out. Or, as she puts it: “Why wouldn’t you fill your body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best so that you can feel your best? Why wouldn’t you take time to meditate and put on aromatherapy oil if that would support you? Why wouldn’t you use products that can detoxify and balance your skin?” She makes a good point—or as they say in Australia, “bloody oath!”

Here, as Australian Fashion Week reaches a crescendo, she gives us the lowdown on her down under beauty rules.

Organic Is Not a Trend
In Australia, eating organically isn’t considered “crunchy” or cutting-edge. “Growing your own vegetable patch is quite common and that’s where I learned about the importance of organics and eating well from a very young age,” says Kerr, who abides by the 80/20 rule—a super-healthy, organic diet 80 percent of the time, with 20 percent wiggle room for indulgences. “We grew up that way.”

The Best Body Scrub Is Right in Front of You
You don’t need to spend a fortune on high-end exfoliators, or an entire day concocting a homemade scrub in your kitchen, when all the ingredients you need can be sourced at the beach. “When I am home in Australia, I go for a swim in the ocean, and after getting out of that salty water, I’ll go on the shoreline and scrub my skin with the sand,” says Kerr, who has been practicing the local ritual since she was a child.

Always Have a Hydrating Oil in Your Arsenal
Being so geographically far away from the rest of the world, Australians are accustomed to back-to-back long-haul flights, which suck the moisture out of the skin. Kerr’s secret weapon is her Noni Glow Face Oil. “I never travel without it—it’s the best thing to keep my skin hydrated.” While the Australian summer can be too hot and humid for those with oily complexions to use a straight-up oil, mixing a few drops with a moisturizer will do the trick. “It’s a super easy and quick way to nourish my skin,” says Kerr.

Never Let Jet Lag Win
Speaking of travel, every Australian girl has a tried-and-tested jet lag remedy. “One of my favorite things to do is just take off my shoes and put my feet in the grass. It’s really grounding,” says Kerr. “Another thing I do is take a bath. I make it super hot and I put a pound of baking soda and a pound of sea salt and that draws [the toxins] out of your body.”

Face Mists Are Underrated
Often overlooked, mists are an essential step in an Australian beauty regimen. A spritz in the middle of the day, over your makeup, will refresh your skin—whether it needs cooling from the sun, or hydration from an overly air-conditioned office. For Kerr, there’s the added benefit of aromatherapy. In the morning she uses a citrus mist to energize, and at night, a lavender variation to help her unwind.

Marion Cotillard Brings a Bit of Edge to the Cannes Red Carpet

A few years back, the Cannes Film Festival was besieged by a few stars who opted for flats on the red carpet. But earlier today at the photo call for her new film, Ismael’s Ghosts, Marion Cotillard brought a whole new energy in a directional look from Y/Project. The Academy Award–winning actress often makes her mark in Dior, but today’s look was more fashion-forward, taking surprising cues from her maternity wardrobe.

The exaggerated T-shirt dress featured a clever corset detail that hit at the hip, revealing the triple-cuffed jeans Cotillard wore beneath. The oversize proportions were the ideal foil for her slim, fitted denim, given a leg-lengthening effect through strappy heeled sandals. Illesteva’s Wynwood shades provided the A-list finish.

It’s officially summer movie season, and last night in Miami Priyanka Chopra joined The Rock, Zac Efron, and her fellow Baywatch cast members for the blockbuster’s premiere. Chopra is no stranger to the red carpet, having taken on the Golden Globes, the Oscars, and the Met Gala for the first time this year like a pro. Last night she appeared to be taking style cues from the title of the movie itself, unleashing her inner sea goddess with a vintage Halston wrap dress.

A plunging neckline and elegant slit made for eye-catching details on the Bollywood star who often favors throwback glamour for red carpet occasions. The soft blue palette mimicked the appearance of water, as did the intricate embellishments. Coordinating midnight nails and eyes amped up the effect, while diamond cocktail rings by Nirav Modi lent contrast and a dazzling finish.

Amit Aggarwal AW’17 at Amazon India Fashion Week FINALE

Known for his radical runway styles, Amit Aggarwal showcased his AW’17 couture collection along with Tarun Tahiliani for the AIFW ‘guru-shishya’ theme. This is the first time that Amit presented a sustainable couture line, making green the new glam.

A sombre mood took over the runway as the audio-visual displayed stars gathering to make beautiful formation. A cold and arid landscape with the parched trees made the backdrop. “Daydreaming”, from the progressive rock band Radio Head, opened the show for the models to appear.

????????????????????????????????????

Ambika Anand

Drawing inspiration from the co-evolution of Earth’s natural topography and man’s material world, the leading designer put together a truly breathtaking collection.

True to his beliefs, Amit continues his journey of recycling and upcycling through his work. Beautiful pre-owned Patola Ikat and Benares antique brocades and antique borders took over the runway in the designer’s signature style. Amit Aggarwal showcased a stunning collection of dresses, lehengas and playful sarees.

Sharp silhouettes with a contrast of fluid, curved elements were pulled together in each look. The contours were cut in engineered curves that traced the bodice, inspired from curvilinear geometry. Braided leather detailing accented the dresses. Amit’s design ethics came through with materials like recycled metallic plastic stripes, metallic hand woven zari, pipes and mesh that were rendered to a high level of inventive workmanship.

????????????????????????????????????

Archana Vijaya

The paradoxical play of the colour palette with combination in ink blue, rust, red, wine, emerald, royal blue, silver, gold, copper and black reflected the inspiration.

The models walked in see-through shoes from heel to toe for an effect of floating on nothingness. These shoes were custom-created by Aprajita Toor for Amit Aggarwal AW’17.

Misho by Suhani Parekh exclusively designed jewellery for this show in 22k gold-plated sterling silver.

Patrons of the brand Archana Vijaya, Ambika Anand, Kalyani Chawla, Sabina Chopra graced the show with their presence.

The show progressed into an upbeat mood, giving cue to Tarun Tahiliani’s collection to take on the ramp.

Anita Dongre – Lakmé Fashion Week’s Golden Girl to close Summer Resort 2017

Inspired by Lakmé’s beauty statement ‘Liquid Gold’, Anita Dongre’s Grand Finale collection is poised to be the ultimate display of Royalty

Mumbai, 06 January 2016: India’s premier fashion platform, Lakmé Fashion Week is all set to soar to new heights with iconic designer, Anita Dongre coming on board as the Lakmé Grand Finale Designer for its Summer Resort 2017 Edition.

As a brand, Lakmé has constantly evolved and reinvented itself to build a rich legacy of trends in India. After successfully establishing Gloss, Sculpt and Illuminate as trend leading make-up ranges, the brand now introduces the next generation of lipsticks, enriched with argan oil. Known around the world as a miracle beauty solution, argan oil (a.k.a liquid gold) is considered by the beauty industry to be almost as valuable as the metal it’s named for.

Argan oil benefits more than just your skin and hair; it makes for a wonderful lip treatment by keeping your lips soft, smooth and conditioned. One of the main reasons that argan oil is healing is that it is rich with vitamin A and vitamin E. Argan oil absorbs quickly, and does not leave an oily residue. This magic ingredient will take center stage at Lakmé Fashion Week and form the inspiration for Anita Dongre’s finale collection. Using her aesthetic she will put together a collection to bring alive the ‘Liquid Gold’ trend and redefine the word ‘luxe’.
