WEEKLY FASHION NEWS RECAP 3/1-3/6 RUBY ROSE FOR URBAN DECAY, RUSSELL WILSON FASHION LINE, GRACE CODDINGTON X COMME DES GARCON AND MADAME CJ WALKER @SEPHORA
Urban Rose: Makeup brand Urban Decay has announced Orange is the New Black actress Ruby Rose as their new spokesperson. The 29 year old Australian model, DJ, former MTV VJ, and radio host is another awesome choice for the brand who just recently finished up a collaboration with Gwen Stefani and her signature red lip. Rose seems Ike a good fit for the alternative beauty brand who "spreads the gospel of self expression, color addiction and beauty with an edge." The self described gender fluid androgynous star definitely has an edge, is a huge proponent for LGBT rights and seems like a good fit for the brand with a representative describing the partnership, "Everything Urban Decay does is feminine, dangerous, and fun — and with her badass look, f***-it attitude and playful spirit, Ruby nails what that means to us."
Good Man Style: Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has a clothing line called the "Good Man Brand" and IT is available at Nordstrom and online. Prices range from $78 for a tee to $348 for shoes with three dollars going to the Why Not You Foundation. Wilson is no fashion guy and he knows it- but the collection is made for "the 27 year old guy dating someone out their league who needs to go out on a date," says the guy dating pop singer Ciara. And don't expect him to model any of the looks either "I have a day job", Wilson states. No word on whether the clothes can be worn with Gucci flip flops or not lol. Pieces are for sale at shop.nordstrom.com.
The Cat's Meow: You can now smell exactly how flame haired editor Grace Coddington wants you to smell with the debut of Grace by Grace Coddington, the perfume she has in collaboration with Comme des Garcons. The fragrance drops on April 19th and the scent is a mixture of Amber crystal- spiked Moroccan rose absolute along with peach blossom and white musk. Coddington says the smell was inspired by her mother's rose garden growing up and the Red Rose perfume she wore in her early modeling days. An avid lover of cats, the head of the bottle is designed to look like on and was sketched by Grace herself. The former creative director of Vogue stepped down in January, but has been busy working on side projects including a film adaption of her memoir and a coffee table book due out soon. So you can basically have a small piece of this icon whose career in fashion has spanned over 6 decades!
Boss Chic: America's first self made millionaire was a Black woman by the name of Madame CJ Walker. There are so many misconceptions about her- like how she invented a "magical hair growing ointment" and the hot comb- when in reality she just perfected them and was more of a marketing and business minded genius. You can read more about Madame Walker's life here... But none of this takes away from her legacy and every single black woman entrepreneur has her to thank for paving the way and now some 100 years later black hair care is big business with everybody is cashing in- including Sephora. The Madame C.J. Walker Beauty Culture will debut four collections to be sold exclusively at Sephora starting March 4th, and will "focus on cleansing, treatment and styling, each item in the line will nourish, condition, detangle and seal in moisture while also addressing scalp issues". The lines will have shampoos, conditioners, co-washes, gels, and creams among other things and will use no silicones, only natural oils to keep hair shiny and healthy. Madame's great granddaughter A'Leila Bundles, weighed in stating, "Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture is taking what Madam Walker envisioned more than 100 years ago to a fresh, new level with products and formulas I believe she may have imagined for the 21st century." Well I saw the prices and may have to sit this one out lol...
