Keri Hilson wears I by Aiisha

While I was giving my second collection from my recently launched ready-to-wear line I by Aiisha final finishing touches, my first collection is still harvesting its success in Hollywood!

On the 28th of August, singer and actress Keri Hilson looked gorgeous to perfection with her darker hair, long braids, beautiful gold accessories wearing a long black Dita gown from my I by Aiisha Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Keri kept it simple yet sophisticated.

Keri was beautifully styled by Monica Rose as she arrived to the premiere for the third installment of the science fiction thriller “Riddick”, in which she plays “Shirah” a prisoner opposite action star Vin Diesel.

To tell you more about the Dita dress, this is one of the most special pieces to my heart as it appeals to every woman. You can wear it open back with a long slit with the button loops acting as decorative elements, or you can close them for a more conservative look. The best thing about it is that its so simple and calls for statement accessories. I have made it in beautiful colors like cobalt blue, red, black and off white. I have to say that the Dita dress is the signature dress from I by Aiisha.

Since we’ve launched our latest high-end ready-to-wear line I by Aiisha with our first collection “Mirror”, the line has been in high demand. I can promise you that soon it will be in the USA in affordable prices – in comparison to our Couture line – yet maintaining the high quality and in most cases, hand crafting.

Ashanti wore a white beaded number from our collection that was praised by many such as Perez Hilton. Vampire Diaries Candice Accola looked amazing in one of my favorite dresses, a cobalt blue cocktail one, that was featured in the latest issue of Nouveau Magazine

FACES Makeup Competition on MBC TV – Final Challenge

The final challenge for the Faces “Wojooh Jamalek” competition on MBC TV was all about passion. The contestants were given the freedom to create anything, even draw on the body.

The results didn’t do it for me and were in fact slightly disappointing.

Lina gave me the perfect face makeup emphasizing on simplicity and practiced her calligraphy skills by writing a poem verse by Nizar Kabbani about Baghdad – her hometown. I just wondered where did all the great work that I’ve seen from her across the weeks go?

As for Namareq, no doubt my eyes went straight to her model from the explosion of colors that were going on there. It certainly speaks passion, but an overload of that portion. It was too much texture going on, despite my admiration for parts of it, and the drawing on the body was imperfect.

Namareq said that the work she’s done needed more time and I believe her.

Its too unfortunate that they didn’t make me wonder much which is best because neither one was that great. I just think that if you’re not so good at body painting or that if you would need too much time, then do less of it rather than spend a lot of time trying to work it out. Its just hard for me to believe that after all I’ve seen from them, these looks are their “Best Work”, because they’re not. I’ve seen them do tons better.

In the end, both finalists were incredible throughout the competition. They have demonstrated a level of professionalism and creativity that I haven’t seen in a long time in the Middle East. In general, the decision was hard to make. Lina Hussein was announced the winner and Namareq Al Mansoury is the runner up for this competition and will be the official makeup artist for my upcoming look book.

The program was presented by the beautiful Hind Boumchamar and I salute her and her team for their hard work presenting this beautiful program.

Lina Hussein proved me right once again. The model behind her makeup looked beautiful and truthfully this was the first time this model looked that good in this competition. Lina can simply make anyone look more beautiful. Lina portrayed a Queen of love full of romance.

Risellene is the perfect makeup artist for fashion shows. With her European approach, she proves to be very creative and thinks outside the box. Unfortunately, she doesn’t relate much to the Arab market. This look specifically didn’t feel complete and the gold paper was too spread in an incoherent way, especially under the eyes, it didn’t do it for me. Hard luck for Risellene; however, rest assure this is a name you will see a lot more of in the near future.

Next week’s episode will be the finale. The challenge is all about Passion. It will be a tough one. However, because both finalists are incredibly good, I have announced that the runner up will be the official makeup artist of my upcoming lookbook. Stay tune.

Lolita Lempicka launches l’Eau Jolie

 

0,60 a 0,69-Eau Jolie

On my latest trip to Paris, I saw how the Parisian fragrance brand Lolita Lempicka creates magic that make us dream. That story will have to wait for bit.

For now, let me introduce you to the latest Lolita Lempicka perfume L’eau Jolie just in time for this summer. With its fruity floral scent and its iconic candy apple bottle in crystal clear glass, this fragrance represents the come back of the nostalgic dreams of every girl.

L’eau Jolie is a new take on innocence: the thrill of that first glance. The excitement of an unfamiliar feeling. A host of emotions collide and the heart quickens.

Screen shot 2013-05-05 at 9.40.31 AM

To represent both L’eau Jolie and the First Fragrance, Lolita Lempicka found the perfect fit in Elle Fanning: a burgeoning beauty who perfectly embodies unintentional seduction. After all, there’s nothing more alluring than a young girl who doesn’t realise she is irresistible.

L’eau Jolie is available in Paris Gallery boutiques in the UAE and at selected key outlets across the region and it retails from AED265 for 50ml and AED195 for 30ml

Treat yourself this summer with L’eau Jolie!
