L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Campaign

L'Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign

Blake Lively, Zoe Saldana, Jane Fonda, Laetitia Casta, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Natasha Poly and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan star in the latest L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds campaign, which was shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Each of the ambassadors are dressed in white (Zoe and Liya in Elie Saab Spring 2014) with a bold red lip, but the twist is they are not all wearing the same shade.

The red lip shades were inspired by their skin tones and even their hair colour to create the perfect match.

L’Oreal is hoping to diminish the fear of choosing such a bold lip colour with the new collection.

L’Oreal make-up artist Lynsey Alexander said, “The correct red should leave you feeling empowered, confident, and sexy all at once whilst ultimately being something you choose to wear and not something that wears you. There is most definitely a perfect red for everyone and if you apply one tone and feel conscious and aware of it then it’s not the one for you.”

All of our favourite L’Oreal girls appear in the ad, with the exception of new girl Kirsten Dunst, Cheryl Cole and Sonam Kapoor.

A few of the shades are below. I’m having a strong pull towards Laetitia’s deep rouge.

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better…Laetitia Casta or Lucy Liu?

Who Wore Dolce & Gabbana Better Laetitia Casta or Lucy Liu

Back in February, Laetitia Casta attended a photocall during the 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress featuring an illustration of Acropoli di Agrigento in Sicily.

Opting for a more conservative look than we are used to, she styled the look with a black blazer and bow-front pumps.

Lucy Liu wore the same dress a few months later to the Tony Awards nomination, adding a belt and keeping the styling to a minimum which won me over, so she wins for me.

Laetitia Casta In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Laetitia Casta In Christian Dior Couture - ‘Grace of Monaco’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Laetitia Casta attended the ‘Grace of Monaco’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony of the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 14) in France.

Dressed in Dior, the French model wore a strapless Spring 2014 Couture gown with a rise-and-fall hemline detailed with crystal and organza appliqués.

I can still appreciate the beautiful details of this gown despite it being a tad too shapeless for my personal tastes, but I can’t forgive those black pumps with this look.

Dior has such a wide variety of pumps which would’ve been so complementary to this look, so her pedestrian choice baffles me.

Christian Dior Cruise 2015 Front Row

Dior Cruise 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior Cruise 2015 show took place on Wednesday (May 7) in Brooklyn, New York City.

The front row was packed with Dior devotees, with Jennifer Lawrence notably absent as she is currently filming ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ in Paris, France.

Rihanna: Despite the tattoos and our knowledge of the Bajan star telling us otherwise, Rihanna looked really sweet wearing a dainty Dior pale-pink quilted silk dress with a ruffled hemline. The look was styled with Dior tri-colour pumps with an asymmetrical strap, and a metallic top-handle ‘Lady Dior’ bag from the Spring 2014 collection, plus a ‘Diorific’ necklace and bracelet and ‘Mise en Dior’ earrings.

Marion Cotillard: Just when I thought the French actress had turned a corner, she’s back to selecting tent dresses. It’s a shimmering Dior off white silk Fall 2014 dress with an embroidered off white knitted t-shirt, but oversized and unflattering nonetheless. It screams maternity. Her Dior choices continue to baffle me.

Margot Robbie: The actress is not having a good week. First the Met Gala and now this. Possibly the excessive tan is at fault here, as it’s clashing with her Dior gold lamé Pre-Fall 2014 skirt which was paired with a Dior green wool crepe top. She styled her look with a Dior black clutch and pumps, plus one of those ‘Diorganic’ necklaces featuring a waterfall of green crystals and resin beads that entwine around the neck like leaves which hails from the Spring 2014 collection.

Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014 Hong Kong Show

With the city scene of Hong Kong as a backdrop, Christian Dior hosted their Spring 2014 Couture fashion show on Wednesday (April 9), inviting along Asian and French stars.

Dior Haute Couture Spring 2014 Hong Kong Show

Laetitia Casta: The French actress truly took my breath away wearing a multi-coloured fringed silk dress from Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection which she styled with an architectural metal belt and dual-colour strappy Dior sandals. Hair and makeup were kept simple to ensure her dress was the focus and how could it not be?

Gwei Lun Mei: Working a monotone look, the Asian beauty wore an uber chic minimalist look from Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection including a wool jacket, wide leg trousers and white clutch. I love this look just as much as Laetitia’s. So hip it hurts.

Laetitia Casta In Givenchy Couture – 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 Opening Night

Laetitia Casta In Givenchy Couture - 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 Opening Night

As expected, Laetitia Casta dialled up the glamour for the opening night of the 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 held at Teatro Ariston on Tuesday (February 18) in Sanremo, Italy.

Wearing three archived Givenchy Couture looks, the model presented wearing a custom white satin corset, with a long white silk-chiffon Spring 2012 Couture skirt enriched with micro-paillettes and crystal fringes and suspended from a silver chain.

Adding a more glamorous spin to her look, she added white leather opera gloves, screen-siren wavy tresses and a glossy red lip.

Laetitia Casta In Dolce & Gabbana – 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 Photocall

Laetitia Casta In Dolce & Gabbana - 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 Photocall

Laetitia Casta attended a photocall during the 64th Festival di Sanremo 2014 held at Teatro Ariston on Tuesday (February 18) in Sanremo, Italy.

Usually sultry at every turn, the model wore a more conservative look on this occasion.

She wore a Dolce & Gabbana frock which, shockingly, isn’t made of lace, nor does it feature a floral print.

Referencing Italy’s old-world heritage, the curve-enhancing dress, which she styled with a black blazer and black pumps, features a beautiful ancient-ruins print.

Had she removed the blazer, her signature sultriness would’ve been on full display, but I guess she may be saving that for the opening ceremony.

You can buy Laetitia’s Dolce & Gabbana Temple Print Tank Dress from Nordstrom.
