COSMETICS A LA CARTE COLOUR AND CULTURE EXHIBITION
This is turning out to be an exciting month for beauty. I would love to make it to the Chanel no5 exhibition in Paris but frankly, that ain’t gonna happen. More achievable is the Cosmetics A La Carte ‘Colour And Culture’ exhibition next week at 50 Redchurch Street E2. Celebrating forty years of the specialist cosmetics company (I’ve always wanted one of their custom-made foundations), the exhibition is only on for five days (22-26 May, 10-6pm) so rearrange that diary and schedule it in!

Breaking news: Hamish Bowles is getting his own Vogue TV show. That is all…
(Actually, that’s not all. Fashionista has a story about a whole clutch of Vogue online TV content, but the only show I’m really interested in is Vintage Bowles. Bring it on…)
**SPOILER ALERT** Ding dong! The inaugural issue of Miss Vogue has been published and my verdict is in. First impressions: it looks like Teen Vogue! I was expecting a full-size issue and something thinner, so it’s good to see a perfect-bound spine. I was totally not surprised to see Cara on the cover – I expected her or Edie (P.S, thank you Vogue for putting a model on the cover). Continue reading
Was every panelist and speaker at Vogue Festival briefed to implore us to work hard and follow our dreams? Because that felt like the overarching message of the weekend at the second annual Vogue-branded event.
“If you’re really good at what you do and have a dream, It will happen,” said Alber Elbaz on Sunday, and when Alber says this you believe him. Of all the speakers I saw, he was the most relaxed, funny and passionate and also a brilliant storyteller. But pretty much all the key speakers put their success down to a mix of talent and tenacity, plus a personal point of view. Continue reading
I’ve been at Vogue Festival today (as a guest of Vogue) and will be back again tomorrow. I’ll blog it properly but for now here’s a sneak peek of the first day of Vogue Festival highlights. Watch Natalie Massenet thank Alexandra Shulman for not giving her a job at Vogue…
The second Vogue Festival is only two weekends away and the jam-packed schedule keeps on growing (see the whole schedule here). But like any good event, there’s also a bunch of merch you can buy – so I hope you have deep pockets. How about your very own Vogue Starbucks-style coffee cup for that all-important Anna W moment?

COMING SOON: MICHAEL KORS MAKE-UP
The Michael Kors machine is about to get even bigger with the announcement of his colour cosmetics line arriving in August. He already has a hugely successful fragrance market (the scented Michael Kors leg shine is one of my all-time favourite products), but this beauty line is set to send his stock even higher.

Self Service mag has gone all 90s tomboy for Spring 13. “This issue is very different. It’s more in the tomboy, early-’90s direction — still glamorous, though. I think it’s somewhat of a reaction to what we’ve done in the past,” creative director Suzanne Koller told Into the Gloss. In fact, it sounds like the whole mag is full of natural-looking, androgynous styling on really hot girls, minus what Koller calls ‘bimbo-style posing’. Issue 38 is out 6th March.
