Girl Power

DC Comics super heroine, Wonder Woman, who first appeared in 1941 received a dramatic - and amongst her fans, controversial - makeover with the June 2010 release of Issue No. 600 of her monthly comic book series. Here's my impression: The original Wonder Woman is all-American, strong yet feminine, and pantless. The updated version of Wonder Woman looks like a vampire out of the Twilight series. Kind of a 'goth romance' look. I must say the tights/pants and the cropped motorcycle jacket will make it much easier for her to fight injustice and crime.

What makes this story trend relevant for me is the influence she is having on fashion and makeup. MAC Cosmetics revealed that the company is partnering with DC Comics' Wonder Woman to create a limited edition color cosmetics collection featuring the illustrated superhero. Set for a spring 2011 launch at all MAC locations worldwide, the lineup is expected to include lipsticks, eye shadows, blush and nail polish ranging in price from $13 to $49.
Alexandre Vauthier is currently one of the hot names on the Paris couture scene, with Rihanna and Madonna leading the fan club for his moulded-to-the-body, sci-fi silhouette. His fall/winter 2010 couture collection is Wonder Woman inspired, with plunging V necklines and dangling sleeves that were today's super-heroine's answer to the cape.

It is also rumored that there is a Wonder Woman movie in the works for 2013. Super exciting!

Louis Vuitton Fall 2010

For its fall campaign, Louis Vuitton cast the models Christy Turlington, Karen Elson and Natalia Vodianova, for this exquisite photo shoot. WWD reports that the ladies "are shown preening in front of old-fashioned makeup mirrors backstage, as if they were ready to take a stroll around the fountain of the Louvre's Cour Carre, the setting for Vuitton's show during Paris Fashion Week in March."

Eclipse VIP

Last night I attended Eclipse. My friends and I purchased VIP passes that gave us a movie ticket and an after party at a local restaurant. There were seven of us, all women. Three of us -me included - are Team Jacob. The rest, Team Edward. Of the three of us on the Team Jacob side, only one of us really is a diehard Twilight fan. I don't really get all the mania but I have to say I had a blast last night! One of my friends (who shall remain nameless but is pictured here) kept making little gasps of ecstasy (I am laughing while I write this!) every time Edward kissed Bella. It was hilarious! Did I love the movie - no; but it was funny and entertaining and I will probably join my friends for the next movie in the Twilight saga.
