**Coco Chanel's birthday - it's today - 19th August**

Despite having died forty years ago in 1971, Coco Chanel's work is still alive. She would have been 129 today :)  Everyone know who she is and how amazing the label is doing even 40 years after her death. She defined an era of style with her classic, timeless designs and redefined what it was to dress as a woman. A firm believer in elegance and the wearing of perfume, she had a lot to say about life - whether it was how to achieve your dreams or the importance of putting on make-up. She’s a household name; a legendary fashion icon who, even if you’re not a fashion follower, have been unsuspectingly influenced by her genius.

 Here are some facts about Coco Chanel:

• Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel was born in 1883 and died in 1971
• She created a new look for women in the 20th century, creating clothes that were primarily comfortable. A Chanel suit of 1923 or handbag is still seen as a landmark purchase for women of increasingly younger ages
• The Chanel No.5 scent is the best selling in the world
• The interlocking Cs of Coco Chanel remain one of the ultimate brand insignia
• Since 1983, Chanel has been designed by Karl Lagerfeld
• The building where her apartment is in Paris was bought by Chanel in 1920, and still houses the ground-floor shop, the haute couture workrooms in the attic (where 100 seamstresses still work entirely by hand), and what is now Karl Lagerfeld's study


Coco's famous quotes which so many of us know.....

"Elegance is not the perogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future."

"A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." 

"If a man speaks badly about all women, it usually means he was burned by one woman." 

"Nothing goes out of fashion sooner than a long dress with a very low neck."  

"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different."  

"Fashion passes, style remains."- One of my favorite quotes

 


Have a wonderful week everyone. Justyna xxx

**Vogue Paris - September Issue**

September Issue

We all know that September Issue is always the biggest one produced during the year – there is no difference this year. Vogue Paris on this occasion has prepared a surprise to all readers. The French edition of the "fashion bible" for publication in the September edition invited unique personality, which together have created three covers. Each is dedicated to another model, and they are world-class names because the photos of beautiful ladies in black Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone has been taken by the duo of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. All three cover girls wore the same dress by Dolce & Gabbana. The new Vogue issue will be available from 23rd August. How exciting! I cannot wait to see the editorial shoots - those are always my favorite :) Justyna xx

**Olympics 2012 - Closing Ceremony**

Olympics are over! It's Official! I am watching live and it's been amazing! The opening was great and closing even better. The line up was superb - Jessie J, George Michael, Fatboy Slim, Annie Lenonx, Queen and more. The closing ceremony really showed what Britain is about - we have a huge history from music, film to fashion! They really showed the best bits within 2.5 hours. Here are some pictures from tonight ceremony and even though I am not British myself - I am really proud of the country where I live.
I must say the bit I really enjoyed was the British Fashion :) No surprise here :) The Olympic Stadium was transformed into a giant catwalk as supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss stole the show at the closing ceremony. They both wore Alexander McQueen and they looked fantastic! Here are some pictures - in case you missed the show :) Justyna xxx

See you in Rio in 2016 :) which I am sure will be very spectacular!

**Katy Perry for GHD campaign**

GHD hairstyling brand has worked closely with Katy Perry to create this stunning campaign. The black and white images were shot by fashion photographer and ex supermodel Ellen von Unwerth in Los Angeles. Talking about the ghd shoot Katy said: 'It was fun to go a more natural route after playing characters in my last ghd campaign. 'Ellen von Unwerth captured both the playful and chic looks amazingly well.' I totally agree with that and those pictures are amazing. The campaign is all about showing the confidence that a good hair day can bring, and thanks to superstar session stylist Danilo there was a whole lot of good hair – Katy’s shown with a different style in each of the shots. All the hair looks are effortlessly beautiful and were styled with the range of ghd stylers, the new ghd air™ hairdryer, ghd brushes and ghd style products. Hope you like the end result - I think she pulled it off so well and she looks amazing!

Here are the team of people who helped with creating Katy's look for that shoot:
Hair: Danilo
MUA: Jake Bailey
Stylist: Johnny Wujek
Nails:  Kimmie Kyees
