It seems the troubles for Emanuel Ungaro just keep mounting! The latest news is that Lindsay Lohan has been removed from her duties as design director and in the blink of a New York minute the company has shut down its Madison Avenue flagship store in New York City. The appointment of Lohan seemed as a desperate move on the company's part and most industry experts signaled this was a move in the wrong direction. We personally felt Estaban Cortazar did a good job as designer for his three year stint. Regarding the store we had passed by many times and there was no traffic at all which we could see but other design houses suffered the same fate of little to no customers. The question now remains what happens to the house of Ungaro?

With Spring right around the corner Too Faced Cosmetics have two new products which should be on your radar screen for the season. First is their eye shadow duo which come in four different combination. Peach Fuzz & Sexpresso, Silk Teddy & Erotica, Heaven & Teddy Bear and Honey Pot & Cocoa Puff. Each duo will retail at around $17.00.
The second item is Fun in the Dark from the quickie Chronicle series which was very popular when started. Benefits from this set include four eye shadows, Sun Bunny Bronzer, Brightening Blush, Lip Gloss and one Lip of Luxury lipstick. The truly great aspect to this new compact is the "built-in" lights which makes applying makeup anywhere possible. We have always been huge fans of the design aspect regarding Too Faced and they just keep wowing us! The retail for Fun in the Dark is set around $32.00.

For a long time we had always been invited to Nary Manivong's fashion shows but due to either conflict or location we had never seen his work. For his F/W 2010 collection we are sorry we did not see this designer sooner! Mr. Manivong shows what many other designers lack which is creativity, focus, great editing and restrictive color choices. Showing a small collection this season Nary Manivong presented a wonderful black and white brush stroke print along with black leather separates. The collection is less than twenty looks but at times less is more. If your interested there is a documentary about him www.dressed-themovie.com which is coming out soon, we can't wait to see it!
The Dennis Basso Fall Winter collection for 2010 demonstrates how powerful his clothing can be. His ability to make women look sexy, smart, cool and confident is like no other fur designer we know of. His dresses and separates are nice no doubt but its the furs that speak volumes. Slap on some great heels and a cool pair of sunglasses along with a fur and your good to go!
