Hi there and welcome to the first column with Defacto and Betty & Bee. We’ll be keeping you up to date with what’s on in the industry from product launches to industry gossip. This weekends been a big one (literally….it was Radio 1’s Big Weekend), while Saturday night saw us glued to our screens for Eurovision. Also, did we mention it was our favourite famous lovebirds anniversary? We round up our titbits that you need to know right now.
First up, it’s our gurl Taylor Swift…
It’s been a big week for Swifty fans the world over. Tay Tay all but tore it up at Radio1’s Big Weekend sporting an unbelievable sheer and fringed bodysuit. We loved seeing her rock her signature blonde bob and red lips, especially after the drastic change in her recent video Bad Blood. The Sin City inspired video saw her gathering her famous super cool group of power gals including Lena Dunham, Karlie Kloss and Cara Delavinge for an action packed showdown, With over $13,000 of fetish wear borrowed for the shoot (Tay’s blush basque was a favourite) it was seeing her with red locks that really rocked our boat. Personally we think she looked fantastic, but don’t leave the blonde side just yet Swifty!
We can’t not talk about Eurovision…
It’s that time of year again where we take to our living rooms for the annual Eurovision song contest. This year it was held in Austria where our favourite bearded lady, and last years winner, Conchita Wurst, hosted. Let’s face it, no one really watched it for the music right? Some of our favourite looks for the night included Georgia’s goth inspired raven look with smoked out eyes and Serbia’s sequin and glitter overload. We don’t know about you, but we’d follow that wonderful singing woman in to battle. Her bejeweled cape was our most coveted item of the night. The U.K’s entry? I think the less said about that the better but we leave you with this – Gatsby. Skat. Light up suits. Shudders.
Relationship Goals of Kimye
Last but not least, a happy anniversary to our favourite power couple Kimye. We still can’t believe it’s been one year since Kanye took Kim up the aisle, but word is to celebrate their off renewing their vows in Paris. And they have plenty to celebrate. The lovebirds are the current faces of Balmain, Kim launched her first book, Selfish (yes the book of selfies) at the beginning of the month and they were named among Time’s 100 most influential people. Paris sounds like a pretty nice way to round off that year right?
Product of the week: Arran Aromatics
We’re loving Arran Aromatics Feel Good Formulas Sea Mud Mask. With hints of bergamot and mint it’s our go to mask of the moment when we’re having a skin care crisis. Perfect for disguising all those late nights!
