The Cover Story

I had very little to say about the Kim & Kanye Vogue cover other than what I already mentioned on Twitter: this would have been a good time to cancel my Vogue subscription if I still had one. I guess the fact I no longer get the magazine is telling enough. Vogue used to be the ultimate fantasy, inspiring and influential. Putting that couple on the cover because they're "the most talked about couple in the world" is exactly what I don't want Vogue to be. I don't want the divine Grace Coddington to be the one arranging the train of Kim Kardashian's dress. Just no.

Deep breath.

I found a collection of Marie Claire covers from the early 1940s on While I don't harbor an ounce of fake nostalgia for that particular era, I do appreciate the aesthetics, the clothes and hats, and the fact that the focus is on the faces of beautifully dressed models. I hope you enjoy these, too.

Olivia Wilde In Blue Eye Makeup

Olivia Wilde is on the cover of Marie Claire this month so the magazine threw a party in her honor last night. Olivia donned a cute Monique Lhuillier dress from the Resort 2013 collection and something we rarely see on green eyes: bright blue eye makeup. Olivia Wilde is a brand ambassador for Revlon, but this look wasn't by done by their people (I confirmed with Revlon PR), so your guess is as good as mine: eyeliner? eye shadow? Do you like blue eye makeup on green eyes?

Keira Knightley On The Cover Of 'Marie Claire' March 2013

Keira Knightley is on the cover of  Marie Claire's March 2013 issue and I'm completely and utterly taken with her makeup. A well-defined metallic blue eye and neutral everything else-- this is a wonderful and flattering look for us browneyed girls. I'll do my best to get an official breakdown of this makeup and share it here, not to mention that I'm getting all my blue eye makeup out and starting to experiment this afternoon.
