Iman adds Platinum Collection to growing list of brands


Her successful beauty business paved the way for a collection of clothing called Global Chic, a line of under-$100 women's separates and accessories, which is sold exclusively on HSN. This fall, she's added a higher-end line of clothing, outerwear and bags, the Platinum Collection.
"My clothes are chic; they're classics reinvented," Iman said.  "I leave the trends to H&M and Zara because they do it so well."

“When it comes to my clothes, I like color, but not in-your-face color,” she said. "I like to provide color as you need it. For instance, a red bag can lift everything up and is easier to wear than all red."
Though her fashion business has taken off, she said it's certainly not something she envisioned doing while modeling for some of the biggest names in the industry. She was adamant about not referring to herself as a "designer," but rather as someone who interprets trends and creates and curates a lifestyle line.
But her firsthand experience working directly with designers certainly has honed a keen, sophisticated sense of style.
"When I would walk in [to a fitting or photo shoot], the designer would ask me, 'How would you wear this, how would you put this together?'" she said about her modeling days. "You were a muse."
wow...am one of your great fans, I love your makeup collections, and am loving this clothing line aswell....

E! presenter Giuliana Rancic has breast cancer

E! personality Giuliana Rancic, 37, announced Monday morning that she has breast cancer.
The reality star and host revealed on Today that doctors discovered the cancer when giving her a mammogram as part of IVF treatment -- Rancic has been public with her multi-year struggle to get pregnant. She said of the discovery:
    "It was just a kick in the stomach ... I was just a few days away from going to Colorado to get IVF ... It was incredible, instant sobbing ... 36 years old, no family history ..."
Rancic said she must undergo surgery and six weeks of radiation therapy, but that because the cancer was caught early, her prognosis is good. She will then continue her quest to become pregnant.
    "I still want this baby ... this baby has saved my life. I truly feel God was looking out after me … If I had gotten pregnant later down the line, I could have been a lot sicker."
Rancic's advice for women? "A lot of us think we're invincible," she said. "Women are busier than ever ... we have to start putting ourselves on the 'To Do' list."
Rancic also praised her husband, Bill, for his support. "He lets me feel what I want to feel," she said.

Choosing Wedding Makeup

After settling on a guest list and finding a reception venue, choosing wedding makeup is one of the most important tasks for a bride. There are so many ways you can look at the one event that you must look perfect at. The key is to book a makeup artist you trust that can create a variety of different looks well or do many experiments yourself.
You can choose to have a look using colors from the wedding color scheme, those that naturally enhance your features or match your wedding gown, hairstyle and jewellery or season.
A good idea is to use colors that play up your skin and eyes and also do not clash with the chosen bridal color scheme. If you look best in warm tones, use those. If you are radiant in cooler shades, play with looks using these colors.

For a Warm Look

This look is especially splendid if you having a wedding in the warmer months of the year or in autumn.



  • Apply gold under the brow and blend well down into the inner corner of the eye to brighten the eyes. Avoid gold tones that are too shimmery or glittery for this day.




  • On the mobile lid apply a generous amount of a golden bronze. Blend this well into the gold.




  • On the outer corner of the eye use a matte dark brown shade and blend into the crease.




  • With a smudge brush run the same brown shadow along the lower lash line, being careful to stop just where the lashes are naturally apparent.




  • Use black brown eyeliner to line the upper lash line and blend slightly upwards into the shadows above. You don’t want this line to be too obvious, just to increase the definition of the eyes.




  • Use mascara on top and bottom lashes to frame the eyes.




  • For the cheeks use some golden blush lightly (no shimmer or glitter here) for radiance.




  • Use a light brown lip color with a copper sheen to finish off the look.
