Shimmering silver and smoky blue: We have the scoop on Carly Rae Jepsen’s Juno Awards makeup! | Hollywood yohana

 We’re totally obsessed with Canada’s newest singing sensation Carly Rae Jepsen, and she certainly proved her it girl–worth at Sunday night’s Juno Awards. Jepsen’s shimmering, smoky makeup let her play the part of pop princess (can’t you picture her soon-to-be-BFF Selena Gomez in this makeup?) without betraying her age—she is 27, after all!

M.A.C Cosmetics’ senior artist Melissa Gibson used a trio of eyeshadows to build out this shimmering look, starting with “Silver Ring” and “Tilt,” a deep teal-blue, on Jepsen’s lids. She then applied the almost-pewter shade “Print” to the crease and “Carbon” on the outer lid for added depth. Blacktrack Fluidline eyeliner was applied to the top lashline, while a sweep of “Silver Ring” along the lower lashline gave it a smoky finish. Because the eyes were so strong, the rest of Jepsen’s look was appropriately neutral: her cheeks were defined with “Sculpt” from the Sculpt and Shape duo palette and the barely there lip colour was compliments of M.A.C’s lipstick in “Hue.”

BryanBoy is joining America’s Next Top Model! | Hollywood yohana

After weeks of speculation, Bryanboy is indeed joining the cast of America’s Next Top Model.
WWD reported today that sources close to the blogger have confirmed he will be joining the revamped ANTM lineup alongside model Rob Evans, publicist Kelly Cutrone (who’s already got one season under her belt) and celebrity stylist Johnny Wujek, who styles Katy Perry and Rachel Bilson.
After Tyra Banks axed her three long-standing judges Jay Manuel, Nigel Barker and J. Alexander, Page Six had reported rumours of Bryanboy, whose real name is Bryan Grey Yambao, filling one of their spots.
“I love Tyra and ANTM—I think it would be amazing to make a cameo (hello Andre! hello Franca!) but no, nothing is in the works as of now. This is the first time I heard of this,” he had told Fashionista at the time. Whether or not he was actually unaware of the offer, he’s fully on board now.
“Excited with my new role on cycle 19 of America’s next top model,” he posted on his Facebook wall this morning, and the effusive congratulatory tweets from the likes of DKNY PR Girl and IFB are already rolling in.
It will be interesting to see how this blogging sensation pans out on the small screen once the new season starts up!

Prada’s CEO (aka. Miuccia’s husband) thinks counterfeit goods are not all that bad | Hollywood yohana

After hearing all about the counterfeit lawsuit drama that has been going on lately, it’s almost a shock to the system to have someone say anything positive about the illegal industry. Most shocking of all is that the controversial comments are coming from Patrizio Bertelli, Prada’s CEO and Miuccia Prada’s husband.
Bertelli recently concluded a Bloomberg Television interview by saying the counterfeit industry really isn’t all that bad — in fact, it actually has some positive attributes.
“I always say counterfeits, we’re happier to have them than not have them. Don’t you think it’s sad for a brand that no one wants to copy them?” he said on air.
“Something else about counterfeits is that they provide a source of labor and income for lots of other people. So, maybe they’re not totally bad. So, in other words, we have a dual function. We want to penetrate the markets, we want to become successful and sell a lot in new markets. And we end up creating a lot of jobs and counterfeit factories, so that’s very good.”
Gucci, another famed Italian fashion house, evidently does not prescribe to Bertelli’s views that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, especially after their less-than-anticipated settlement with Guess over a counterfeit lawsuit battle (which we reported on earlier this week).
Bertelli did point out that Prada engages in lawsuits to protect their products, but that the fashion industry “doesn’t lend itself very well to patent protection” like high-tech industries do.
A spokesman for the fashion house seemed to try to do some damage control by telling WWD that Bertelli’s quotes were “part of an extended conversation that underscored how the market of counterfeits is an objective reality for successful brands.”
True enough — counterfeit products seem to be an inevitable reality of having “made it” in the fashion industry. But do Bertelli’s views oversimplify an industry that has its fair share of evils, not to mention the fact that it’s downright illegal?


Hayley Phelan: “Say what? It almost sounds like Bertelli admires counterfeiters.”
The Icon Concierge: “…Copying is the sincerest form of flattery! If you don’t want people to copy you don’t make great things”

Bernadette Morra, Editor-in-Chief: “Patrizio Bertelli needs to read Dana Thomas’ book Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster. Then he needs to visit a factory where children under 10 are sewing counterfeit bags, and speak to the victims of terrorism, human trafficking and gang warfare that counterfeiting supports. Then I hope he would feel differently. But maybe not.”

Style Aha Moment: Tia & Tamera on Discovering Fashion in Italy | Hollywood yohana

Tia & Tamera 
Tia and Tamera's styles have come a long way since their matchy-matchy Sister, Sister days. Keep reading to find out how the girls were introduced to the world of fashion...
Tamera: It all started when I took a summer course in Florence, Italy. It was there that I was able to be my own person. I grew up as a woman. I was 22. I was a late bloomer. Growing up in front of the world, my sister and I were sheltered on set. My mom really sheltered us as well. When I was able to leave the United States and be on my own and experience love, food, wine and everything for the first time, I kind of came into my own. That's when my eyes opened, especially being in Italy—there's so much fashion there! Women walk down the cobblestone streets in heels! They were always on point! It didn't matter if they were going to a café, lunch, work or to a club, the women always looked fabulous! I was really influenced by them.
Tia: I developed style when I went to Italy. I don't know if my sister's and my story are sounding alike. (Yes!) I knew this was going to happen! Let's say Europe. My first trip was to London. I remember walking into Harrods and just looking at all of the clothes. My mouth just dropped! I remember buying a pair of leather pants for the first time. That was the first time I told myself, I am going to spend some money on some clothes! I remember I bought this dressy silk blazer that went past my knees. I bought these boots that went all the way up to my knees. I was like, Oh my God! This is cool! I get to have my own form of expression. That was when Tamera and I started dressing differently, too. I think that was the first time I was aware of beautiful clothes. Then, I went to Italy. I lived in Italy for two months. I remember buying leather there for the first time—a leather wallet, leather belt. Everything seemed so advanced. I would go into stores and say, I don't remember seeing this in L.A. People would tell me, "Fashion starts here. Then, it goes to London. Then, it goes to New York. Then it goes to L.A." I had packed very comfortable clothes, like sneakers and jeans, but I would see these girls walk down the streets on cobblestone in pencil skirts, high heels and with their hair pulled back into ponytails. They were just freaking stylish! I was like, Oh! You don't have to be in jeans every day. You can dress up and be stunning just walking down the street. That was the first time I th

Tamera Styles the Classics: Blush Cardigan Edition | Hollywood yohana

Tamera Styles Blush Cardigan 
 Tia and Tamera may look alike, but the sisters have very different styles. So, we thought it would be fun to give each of them the same wardrobe staple and find out what they would pair with it. First up: Tamera's looks! Each day this week, we're going to show how Tamera would style various classics. Get ready for the blush cardigan...
"I always have problems with cardigans," Tamera confessed to myStyle. "But you know what would look good with this? A colorful skinny capri! I would leave the cardigan open and wear a collared shirt underneath. That would be cute! I would wear nude flats with it. For my hair, I would wear it naturally curly and do a natural 'fro."
1. J. Crew Cashmere Boyfriend Cardigan in Blush ($238)

2. Pim + Larkin Peter Pan Blouse in Cream ($59 $39.99)
3. J. Crew Cafe Capri in Casablanca Blue ($89.50)
4. Ivanka Trump Annulio Flat in Ivory Patent ($120)
Come back tomorrow to see how Tamera would style a black pencil skirt—and remember to visit myStyle every day next week for Tia's turn at the classics!
Tia & Tamera Season 2 starts June 11, at 8/7c on Style. 

Kate and Laura Mulleavy on Sequoia trees, Frankenstein and why there are no people on the Rodarte moodboards | Hollywood yohana

 In the world of ready-to-wear fashion, Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte could almost un-exaggeratedly be referred to as gods among designers. Artists. Outsiders. The real deal. Since their label’s launch in 2004, the sisters, 32 and 33 respectively, have been quite solidly staying a cut above the rest with their wise-beyond-their-years artistic references, their ability to seamlessly merge fashion and art and their knack for creating wearable masterpiece after wearable masterpiece with not a fashion degree between them. Between their Van Gogh–inspired spring collection, their somewhat controversial Australian Outback fall outing and their current collaboration with the L.A. Philharmonic, the designers hit Toronto earlier this week for a fête in their honour at The Room at the Bay. We were lucky enough to be let into their world for a little while.

This is Not a Mall brings you the best from South & South East Asia without the cultural-mislabels or the price gouging (plus, we’re getting an extra 10% off!) | Hollywood yohana

The shop: I’m always looking for a good eff-you to Urban Outfitters, and This is Not a Mall—a new fashion and artifacts e-venture from Aussie girls Courtney DeWitt and Annisa Dove—might just be it. For one thing, I found out about it through Susie Bubble, who always knows what’s up. For another, besides their use of the term “curated” (let’s return that word to its original definition; it’s like a year overdue) to describe their hunting-and-gathering activities, DeWitt and Dove are doing things right. Ace vintage? Yes. Correctly identified foreign objects? Yes. (No factory-made, vaguely “ethnic” ripoffs here.) Best international magazines? Some of ‘em, yes. Everything under $100? So far, so yes, although DeWitt says she’ll soon add “super dope higher end labels” along with more menswear and even acer vintage.

The goods: If it looks like it’s from Thailand or India, it actually is: a boon to the socially conscious in ultra-commodified times. Gem-coloured turbans ($8), gold nath and tika chains ($16) and handcrafted slippers from the Hmong Hilltribe ($34) are all bought fairly (i.e., directly from the South and Southeast Asian craftswomen who make them) and sold at double-take prices. Better and cheaper than the mall? I’m almost worried that if I look too long, this oasis in the desert of globalization will turn out to be a mirage. But DeWitt assures us they’ll only expand their purview, adding fair-trade goods from countries like Cambodia and Laos and collaborating with the Hilltribe artisans on special pieces.
The shipping: Sent by Thailand mail, packages should arrive between seven and 15 days, although international couriers are available (for a price), and there are no returns (except on faulty items). The site caveats that “in extreme cases” of security delays, packages could take up to 30 days to arrive. Patience may be one of the virtues entailed in shopping here, but for a metallic leather wallet that’s as cool as Comme des Garçons and a quarter of the cost, I can wait. And DeWitt makes it worth it: “We take pride in our packaging, and large orders are always bestowed with lots of free loot, glitter tattoos, coconut lipbalm, and more!”
The deal: For the next 10 days, shop This is Not a Mall using coupon code thisis10percent and get, yessss, 10% off. This is not a suggestion! Go!
