From South Africa, With Love

Natalie and her entire clan were recently lucky enough to go on a South African safari adventure. Many photographs were taken of the breathtaking wildlife but cameras weren't the only way of capturing the moment - Nat just couldn't resist pulling out her watercolours, and we just couldn't resist sharing the results!

Belle de Jour - Behind the Scenes

Model Emily G and International Makeup Artist April Greaves

Emily G was fresh off a plane from the Greek Islands, jetlagged and still looking amazing - some things just aren't fair!

Pretty blooms to get us in the Spring mood

Belle de Jour is all about the 1960's contoured eye, made fresh and wearable!

We were lucky enough to get our hands on the 'A Team' for our Belle de Jour colour collection campaign shoot. Not only did New York-based international makeup artist April Greaves design the collection, she also flew to Melbourne from the Big Apple especially for the shoot! We had photographer extraordinaire Marnie Haddad behind the camera lens, Andrew Gough had all digital operations covered on the day and gorgeous model Emily G from Vivien's Model Management worked her best 1960's film starlet impersonation Superstar stylist Alex Zabotto-Bentley even popped in to lend a hand!

We're pretty chuffed with the results, we think the A Team nailed Catherine Deneuve's sophisticated 1960's chic to perfection!
