British Vogue: The September Issue

While we're on the subject of Freja....
Freja Beha just dazzles on the cover of UK Vogue's September Issue in a fabulous emerald green, sequined number from D&G.

Freja by Mario Testino

This is not the first I've seen of sequins for AW2011- Balmain, Chanel and Vivienne Westwood have all made use of them for added night time glamour. I'm also love, love, loving the latest D&G campaign, beautifully captured by Steven Klein which also features THE eye catching green dress:

Not thinking too far ahead, but I'm thinking THE green dress could be perfect for the Christmas party season....
Any excuse will do!
THE dress would look great with a strong, smoky, emerald black eyeshadow such as:
(from top to bottom)
  • Bows and Curtseys by Mac- a forest green eyeshadow with a matte metallic finish

  • Queen of the Green by Christian Dior Eye Show- a mousse textured shadow with a metalic finish

  • Cleo by Nars- a dark metallic emerald black shadow

A light dusting of MAC pigment in Old Gold (antique green-gold metlliac shade) would complete the look!

To get Freja's textured hair look use a texturising product such as Makeup Marple's current favourite:
Create Character
by Wella Professionals

It gives a similar finish as a sea salt spray and you simply spray it in to dry hair and either scrunch with your hands or blast through with your hairdryer for a simple, undone, textured finish
