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.

Liya Kebede In Alberta Ferretti – ‘Birdman’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Liya Kebede In Alberta Ferretti - 'Birdman' Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Liya Kebede swept along the red carpet this evening (August 24) for the ‘Birdman’ premiere which also served as the opening ceremony for the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy.

The model wore a beautiful Alberta Ferretti black strapless gown with an organza mock-feathered bodice and tulle skirt which was made for an occasion such as this.

While I don’t mind the lack of colour from this look, the makeup – or lack thereof – is really throwing me off this look.

She accessorized with diamond earrings and a black and gold Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.

2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Models Roundup

CFDA 1

Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.

Liya Kebede In Roberto Cavalli - 'Mr Turner' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Liya Kebede attended the ‘Mr Turner’ premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 15) in Cannes, France.

As always, she brought a touch of sparkle to the festival, donning a blue and black Roberto Cavalli sheer mini dress with a gladiator-style skirt.

Her legs seemed endless in this bedazzled frock, and were elongated further with a pair of strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Rumba’ sandals.

A black clutch and super-glossy, wavy tresses completed her look.

L’Oreal ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ Ad Campaign

L'Oreal 'Collection Privee by Color Riche' Ad Campaign

Actresses Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Jane Fonda, Fan Bingbing and Eva Longoria pose with models Liya Kebede, Inès de La Fressange and Doutzen Kroes for L’Oreal’s ‘Collection Privee by Color Riche’ campaign.

Captured by Norman Jean Roy, this must have been taken during Cannes Film Festival when all the ladies were providing the eye candy on the carpet while fulfilling their ambassadorial roles.

Sadly Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are not featured in this ad.

The women all wore black dresses, or black blouses and skirts for the shoot.

While it’s hard to identify most, the one which stands out is Fan Bingbing in her Ulyana Sergeenko Couture gown thanks to the distinctive neckline.

Update: Doutzen is wearing a Gucci Spring 2006 gown.

Liya Kebede In Roberto Cavalli – ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Liya Kebede In Roberto Cavalli - 'Jimmy P (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian)' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Just when I thought I was over heavily embellished gowns at Cannes Film Festival, Liya Kebede tingled my senses as she took to the red carpet at the Grand Théâtre Lumière in France for the ‘Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian)’ premiere this evening.

The model, who has been most consistent at Cannes, wore a Roberto Cavalli Fall 2013 gown.

On a cold and rainy night, she wisely opted for a long-sleeve suede and chiffon gown embroidered with Swarovski crystals with added bedazzlement courtesy of her Boucheron ‘Ava’ earrings and ‘Serpent Boheme’ ring.

A black clutch, barely there – because let’s face it she doesn’t need it – makeup and wavy tresses completed her look.

Liya Kebede In Alberta Ferretti – ‘Jeune & Jolie’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Liya Kebede In Alberta Ferretti - 'Jeune & Jolie' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Liya Kebede attends the premiere of ‘Jeune & Jolie’ during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals in France this evening.

The model wore an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2013 gown which is fairly similar to a shorter dress by the same designer that we saw earlier today at a photocall.

Looking very statuesque, Liya’s white lace gown with a chiffon-tiered skirt was accented with a black-and-white waistband and simply styled with a black Repossi cuff and ring.

A side parted bun provided the finishing touches.

Liya Kebebe In Proenza Schouler – ‘Cosmopolis’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Whilst everyone at the ‘Cosmopolis’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere was wearing a gown, Liya Kebebe went left.

The model/actress wore a custom Proenza Schouler dress inspired by the Fall 2012 collection.

Her peacock embroidered silk halter dress with a black mesh hemline was accented with a thin belt.

I love her accessories, especially those open toe booties. She also carried a black Louis Vuitton clutch.

Only a model, sorry, supermodel can work this look on a Cannes red carpet amongst a sea of gowns and own it.

A rouge lip colour provided the finishing touches to her downtown chic meet the French Riviera look.
