#MDNAmeetsKKW

MDNA SKIN hosted Madonna and Kim Kardashian West for a beauty conversation at YouTube Space LA, on Tuesday (March 6).

Throughout the 30-minute conversation, Madonna and Kim shared their favourite beauty tips, biggest beauty inspirations, took selfies and tried each other’s products.

The Queen of pop wore a wore an Alexandre Vauthier velvet tuxedo with enlarged lapels to accentuate the shoulder line giving her a classic 80s look.

Kim was also presenting a classic look, by opting for a bra and fitted skirt.

Here’s a snippet of their conversation. The full conversation will be posted on the MDNA SKIN’s YouTube channel.

Madonna on her daily beauty routine
“I sleep on my face, so I wake up with puffy eyes. When I wake up, my eyes look like small planets, so I created these eye masks that are filled with eye serum, and I cannot speak to anybody until my eyes are not planets.”

Madonna on her beauty inspirations
“I loved Hollywood glamour – Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, and Marlene Dietrich. To me, they were the personification of feminine beauty, and it really looked like they all took care of their skin. And yes, they are all mentioned in my song Vogue.”

Madonna on when beauty first became important to her
“When you become aware that people are watching you and judging you, then you start thinking about the way you look.”

Kim on sharing beauty tips
“I love giving advice. People always come to me. I love analyzing someone’s face and going with them to a doctor and being like, ‘Wait, a little botox here and little here.’ People write me — I will not say who — but people in the business, people that I’ve never even met before, and they’ll text me and they’ll be like, ‘Hey this is so and so. I’m going to send you pictures and tell me what you think I should do.”

Kim on her inspiration
“My mom was a stewardess and all the girls would save their money for a beauty ‘tips and tricks’ class. She learned the trick of exfoliating with a hot wash cloth and I wash my face with a wash cloth every night.”

Sarah Gadon In Miu Miu – Gala Honouring Excellence in Creative Fiction Storytelling

Sarah Gadon looked gorgeous as ever attending the Gala Honouring Excellence in Creative Fiction Storytelling on Wednesday (March 7) in Toronto, Canada.

The actress wore a draped, ruched and plunging design from Miu Miu; cut to a sensual, yet elegant silhouette, and embellished with Swarovski crystals embroidery.

Some might be crying out for contrasting accessories to add a pop of colour, but I like how the matching satin Miu Miu heels kept things classic.

The actress wore an #AFTERMETOO pin. The organisation has partnered with The Canadian Women’s Foundation to establish a fund for sexual violence support services.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – ‘Tomb Raider’ Stockholm Premiere

Alicia Vikander returned to her motherland – Sweden – for the premiere for the reboot of the action-adventure film ‘Tomb Raider’ on Wednesday (March 7) in Stockholm.

If you were expecting Alicia to go the Gal Gadot warrior princess route in honor of Lara Croft for this promo tour, you may be disappointed.

Alicia continues to opt for delicate ladylike elegance in Louis Vuitton.

Her London premiere gown married a feminine aesthetic with an edgier silhouette, but this chiffon dress with shimmering jacquard paneling is prim with a dash of bohemian spirit.

This doesn’t have the same gravitas as the London look, but fits her to a tee.
