NUMERO | MAY 2010
By Huda Heidi Kattan

Of course I love beauty shots, I’m a makeup artist, but Camilla Akran’s shoot for Numero Magazine’s May 2010 issue is just classic. The vintage appeal and soft hues are so attractive and work beautifully with the Anja Rubik’s tones.

From Platinum to Silver? Kate Moss Goes Gray!!

Well the news it out, gray is here to stay! Indeed, we saw gray streaks all over the runway, and now that Kate Moss has died her blond locks silver, it’s confirmed! But is it appealing? On the runway, exaggerated hair, makeup, clothes—AMAZING and a total necessity. In real life, not so much. My personal thoughts, designers are geniuses who have crystal balls into the fashion future. Sometimes we hate their ideas, but 6 months later we are obsessed! For the gray streaks, I’m not ruling it out. I think it has to be done very carefully. There is a fine line between looking fashionable and looking old.

I thought this quote from New York Magazine was very interesting and although controversial, it has a good point:

“First the industry — Karl Lagerfeld included — embraces plus-size models as high-fashion models, and now gray hair is all the rage. What will be hot next? Wrinkles and saggy cleavage? Cellulite? If so, probably not in the everyday sense. If designers one day decide to make dimpled flesh the next big thing, of course they won’t hire normal women who actually have it to model their clothes. They’ll send models down the runway in panty hose filled with rice or something.”

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?
