Priyanka is to Ferragamo What Freida is to _____?

Gotcha! It's a trick question. The answer could be Chanel or Dolce & Gabbana or both. These lovelies are currently the muses du jour for some big - I mean big - fashion names! Freida is savvily promoting herself internationally to major fashion houses like Chanel and D&G which are eagerly vying for her attention post the Slumdog lovefest. They're lavishing her with straight off the runway designs and invites to VIP events at their respective shows and after parties. Freida was first seen at Milan Fashion Week clad head-to-toe in D&G. Those are some killer heels, by the way!Photo Source.
Freida was then whisked off to Paris to attend Chanel's Paris Fashion Week show for which she was of course decked out in Chanel. She later attended the Karl Lagerfeld (omg!) and Jefferson Hacks-hosted soiree at none other than Coco Chanel's apartment. By the way, when referring to Coco Chanel's near-mythic residence, I fear the term "apartment" is sorely misleading. We're not talking one bedroom with kitchenette, people.Photo Credit: AP Photo.Photo Source.
Lifting a page out of Freida's success story, Priyanka has landed quite the laurel herself. As part of the "Shoes for Stars" campaign, Mid-Day reports that Piggy Chops was invited by the Ferragamo family to have her footprints cast at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence. With this honor, Priyanka followed some very royal footsteps (literally!). The only other Indian on whom this honor was bestowed was the Maharani of Cooch Behar, Indira Devi. A bonus (over which I myself am swooning with envy), the famed Ferragamo shoe designers will create customized shoes for PC based on her tastes and requests, and (what?! there's more?) they will regularly send her these custom-made shoes and handbags. Eeeek. An on-going supply of Ferragamo bags and heels? And that too, customized heels?! Envy...thy name is Ferragamo? Here's a sneek peek at Piggy Chops as shot by Italian fashion photog Gianni Rizotti for L'Officiel India's March issue. She is of course wearing pieces from the Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2009 collection.Photo Source.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
