Vivaciously Haute

V MAGAZINE | HAUTE EDITORIAL
By Huda Heidi Kattan

No matter what book store you enter, if you go anywhere near their fashion magazines, it’s almost impossible to miss V Magazine.  Sure, the magazine itself is quite large, but that’s not what grabs your attention. No! It’s the hot cover photo that will catch your eye. For it’s artistic brilliance, we commemorate V Magazine for having some of the hautest, most visually stimulating high fashion covers  in the industry. Bravo V!

Not so Photo-Friendly

They have the fame, the fortune, washboard abs and chizzled jaws. Yes we know, celebrities are perfect, or at least they appear that way. On the other hand, anyone who has played around with Photoshop knows how easy it is to transform someones look from human to someone who looks like they could have been made out of plastic.

Here are a few photos of celebs before and after Photoshop. I guess they are human after all!

When a Little Nip and Tuck is Too Much

Heidi Montag, 2010 post-surgery

Heidi Montag 2006, pre plastic surgery

Has Heidi Montag gone too far? I think we know the answer to that question. After having 10 procedures done in one day (this is not her first time under the knife), Montag claims she is ready for some more work. According to several sources, her surgeon who performed the surgery has refused to do any more work on The Hills star, but will this be the end or will we see a cat lady copy cat?

Younger Skin with Chocolate?

We’ve all been inundated with recent studies that dark chocolate is in fact, not only good for your taste buds, but also your health. What you may have not heard is the beautifying affects of dark chocolate.

In a study published by the American Medical Association, dark chocolate demonstrated the same cancer fighting polyphenol levels that matched red wine. Furthermore, the antioxidants found in dark chocolate have strong anti-aging qualities that protect your skin from sun damage, improve skin hydration, and skin density ( It has been noted that adding sugar to the equation, could cancel out most of the benefits).

Bubble bath anyone?

Mona Lisa Brows? Well, kind of.

Whether you like it or not, bleached brows are still making a statement. Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Prada’s NYFW shows for 2009 clearly agreed! The latest Louis Vuitton ad campaign for Spring/Summer 2010 proves that this trend is not just a fad, but here to stay.

Elle’s Dubai Debut

ELLE ARABIA | VOL 1 | APRIL 2010
By Huda Kattan

Tired of paying 39 AED (over $10) for imported Elle magazines from the US or UK? I know I am! Luckily, the people at Elle understand our concerns, hence the release of the newest addition to the Elle family, Elle Arabia! I am not going to lie, I had some reservations when I first glimpsed the cover of the magazine. I am a huge fan of Elle US and UK and I wasn’t sure if this magazine was going to be able to keep up to the standards of this incredibly iconic magazines.  Did they deliver? Oh yes!

The new Elle Arabia, is filled with haute editorials, latest trends and accessories, and yup, eye-catching makeup all straight off the runway! And at 15 AED per magazine, what more could we ask for?!

Deflate Puffy Eyes!

PUFFY EYES | BEAUTY TIP

I admit, as much as I preach about beauty, one of the downfalls of a crazy schedule is lack of sleep!  Without sleep, your skin will lose its luster and your eyes can puff out to the size of a small country.  For those of you who can’t always afford the time to relax, here are some quick tips to deflating those puffy eyes!

  1. Soak two cotton balls in witch hazel and place each one over eyes for 15 minutes.
  2. Place two black tea bags in warm water and place over eyes for 10 minutes.
  3. Use an eye mask like my favorite, Anatomicals Puffy the Eye Bag Slayer (available at Harvey Nichols for 36 AED), and place in fridge, then wear for 20 minutes.
