Loud and clear: the art of political dressing

Making a fashion statement has a controversial history. Emma Beddington looks at what happens when you wear your heart on your sleeveComment on the delightfully absurd spectacle of the Met Gala this year coalesced around the pointed image of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a gorgeously traditional white gown, the kind of thing a deep south debutante might wear, with “Tax the Rich” in a vast red scrawl on the rear. Was the Aurora James dress provocative or performative, just facile radical cosplay? C...

Dior Toile de Jouy Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Toile de Jouy (429) Dior Toile de Jouy (429) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new(er) warmer neutral color story that included a mix of finishes that ranged from matte to sparkle. This palette suffered from a general powderiness/dryness across the board compared to most of the brand’s eyeshadows. Most shades had semi-opaque or better coverage, and they were blendable, but they absolutely required a prime...

Dior Pink Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Pink Glow (619) Dior Pink Glow (619) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a pink and red color, neutral color story that included satin to sparkle finishes. Two of the shades were more sparkly but had decent coverage despite that, so they were functional as standalone shades as well as for layering. I had issues with the fifth shade, which felt quite different than any other shadow I’ve tried from the brand–it...

Dior Rayonnante (330) Rouge Blush Review & Swatches

Rayonnante (330) Dior Rayonnante (330) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light coral with moderate, warm undertones and warmer, lighter peachy-gold pearl woven throughout. The shimmer was fine, which resulted in a satiny sheen once the blush was applied and buffed out on my skin–the finish made it a little different than the many peachy-coral blushes on the market. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied well to b...

Dior Nude Glide Rouge Blush Review & Swatches

Nude Glide (468) Dior Nude Glide (468) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones with both fine and slightly larger shimmer throughout. When applied and blended out on my skin, the finish looked like high pearl–definitely shimmery but not metallic or prone to emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which could be dialed down if desired by using a li...

The Fascinating story of Bernard Arnault, the ‘Lord of Luxury’, CEO of LVMH

How was it that a fashion designer could be more well-known than the president of his country? This question planted the seed of what would one day become LVMH. Polina As the billionaire CEO of @LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy), Arnault sells items no one actually needs. But with a roster of more than 70 brands including Fendi, Bulgari, Dom Pérignon, and Givenchy, he’s built the world’s largest and most successful purveyor of luxury goods. If it hadn’t been one fateful taxi ride in ...

Dior Early Bird Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Early Bird (659) Dior Early Bird (659) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for the fall season. All five shades were blendable, long-wearing, and easy to use, while two shades were more semi-opaque and buildable rather than fully opaque. The formula felt like a gel-powder hybrid, so they have a more “baked” quality to them, which can require a slightly heavier hand if one is use...

Interview: Karleen Eberle, Owner and Designer of Raven Rova Women’s Motorcycle Gear

It was a hot July summer evening, and this chikita had just finished her beginner’s motorcycle course. I was stoked, sure…more importantly, I was desperately in need of good gear. I beelined for the nearest local moto dealership, on a mission to find something that fit better than the horror I had MacGyvered for the slaloms of the afternoon. Three hours later, I was in the snug retail section, combing the racks for anything in my size. Despite the plethora of textiles and leathers, nothing fit c...

Dior Golden Day Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Golden Day (569) Dior Golden Day (569) 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes two mattes and three shimmer shades. The shimmers varied from more satiny to sparkly, so there was a lot of differences in texture between the five shades. The quality was decent but the matte black was stiffer to work with, so whether it “works” comes down to preference for sure. Ingredients ...

New World (365) Dior New World (365) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral base with flecks of lavender and gold sparkle over a more satin-like finish. It was a more sparkly (or “glittery” in effect, but it did not contain plastic glitter) product where some of those sparkles seemed to disappear during application. The blush was richly pigmented and applied evenly to bare skin with a formula that blended out beau...
