DOWN UNDER UP HERE: On Wednesday night, the hors d’oeuvres at the Crosby Street Hotel had the Melbourne-born model Shanina Shaik feeling more at home than usual. “I just had a Vegemite sandwich and it felt so good,” the recently minted Victoria’s Secret Angel said. The Australian delicacy isn’t normally on the catering menu at the SoHo spot, but it made an appearance Wednesday as a clutch of Aussies turned out for a cocktail party to kick off the Australian Five initiative, a joint project of The Woolmark Co. and the Australians in New York Fashion Foundation. The project brought five of the country’s young designers — Fernando Frisoni, Magdalena Velevska, Kym Ellery, Michael Lo Sordo and Christopher Esber — to New York to showcase their wares. A dozen or so models wore the designers creations, all constructed of Australian merino wool, for the assortment of New York editors and stylists who turned out to welcome them.

Alexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010)“Oyster” DressIrere, spring/summer 2003 Ivory silk organza, georgette, and chiffon Courtesy of Alexander McQueen Photograph © Sølve Sundsbø / Art + Commerce Andrew Bolton: One of the highlights in this gallery is a dress called the “Oyster” Dress, which is made up of hundreds and hundreds of layers of silk organza, almost like a mille-feuille pastry. And the collection told the story of a shipwreck at sea and the subsequent landfall in the Amazon, and it was peopled with pirates, conquistadors, and Amazonian Indians. And I think that what’s interesting about this particular dress is you see how McQueen evolved as a designer in terms of the fact that he was always well known as a tailor. With this particular dress, you see a much softer approach. As Sarah Burton explains:
These are very beautiful drawings! Although I am sad to see Belle looking so unlike herself. On a different note: I’d love to know what the reference was for the period costuming for each Princess.

Although “perfect” is a relative term, this method for curling hair is pretty much perfect by my standards, mostly because it isn’t fussy. While I’m a sucker for both ringlets and Californian waves, I like my own curls somewhere in between: relaxed but bouncy. Mermaid-like.
When Cleopatra bathed with milk, she had a reason for this. Milk has alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), making it one of the best homemade facial cleansers. It makes your skin supple and baby soft.
