Johnny Depp’s Dior campaign is all guy-liner and moody feels

JohnnyDeppDior02

Johnny Depp is the latest Hollywood-actor to front a Dior campaign. It was announced back is June that Johnny will be the face of Dior’s Sauvage fragrance. Dior has previously released teaser images and fifteen second snippets, but the full campaign is finally here. The opening scene starts with a brooding Johnny strumming the guitar, which cuts to Johnny escaping the city into the desert in the hope of finding something he can’t see, but he can feel it – it is magical. What is it? It is Dior’s Sauvage fragrance, a bergamot-tinged fougère scent created by François Demachy for the brand.

REVEALED | Inside scoop on the beauty looks for MBFF 2015

Written by

All fashion lovers alike are on countdown to Queensland's premier style event as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane 2015 is set to begin from August 23.

The tone for the new season will be set with designers unveiling their collections over a week long fabulous affair. Not only will we be shining the spotlight on the outfits and designs but this year's look for hair and makeup will be unveiled. Curious to know what's on the agenda? We have the inside scoop.

We're told the spring/summer collections will be bold, beautiful and inspiring. So MBFF will bring in the trust worthy team from Schwarzkopf Professional who will draw on both the current trends and glamour of the past to create the runway beauty looks.

We've listed below a few of the trends set to take centre stage:

Textural braids
Braids and waves never go out of style and can work for almost any occasion. Whether it’s an elegant up-do or lively festival hair, this trend’s one for the ages, and will be in full force for the likes of Alex Perry, Sass & Bide and Toni Maticevski.

Bombshell hair
Full of movement and body, bombshell hair remains a perpetually sought after look- after all, who doesn’t want hair like a Victoria’s Secret angel?

Sleek and understated
Sometimes, less is more, especially when you’ve got pieces from Easton Pearson and Nicola Finetti to show off! Nothing goes past the timelessness of sleek, straight locks, especially with maximum gloss and shine.

Fashion Weekly will be keeping you up-to-date during and in the lead up to MBFF. So stay tuned on social media or subscribe to our newsletter so you don't miss a beat!

Priceline Pharmacy to bring Whitney Port to Australia

Written by

The gorgeous fashion designer and reality-TV star Whitney Port is coming to Australia! Expected to touch down later this month, Priceline Pharmacy will fly her in to celebrate the launch of the Spring/Summer 2015 beauty trends as part of the brand's Festival of Beauty.

In a unique collaboration, Whitney has co-developed the trends with Priceline Pharmacy Makeup Director Rae Morris, marrying Whitney’s international design flare with Rae’s expert makeup knowledge capturing the essence of what will be hot in beauty for this coming Spring/Summer season. The trends will be unveiled as a series of stunning looks at a major runway event at Sydney’s Doltone House on 26 August.

“I’m so honoured to be the ambassador for Priceline Pharmacy’s Festival of Beauty! As a designer, I appreciate beauty and fashion so this project embodies who I am as a person. Having the opportunity to work with Rae was so much fun and I’m really thrilled to be able to come to Australia to launch these exciting looks for the coming season,” said Whitney.

Talking about the inspiration behind the trends, Whitney said, “When Rae and I got together to work on these trends we were really inspired by how there are so many classic beauty looks that have defined moments in time – we decided to take the looks that everyone was already familiar with – and add a fresh twist, so that they felt modern and new.”

“On my last visit to Australia, I visited Priceline and now I know why it’s called a ‘playground’. It has all the familiar, global brands I know and use, and I was introduced to some fabulous Australian and New Zealand brands too,” said Whitney.

Whitney’s official duties will include helping launch Priceline Pharmacy’s Festival of Beauty campaign this month.

Newly announced, fellow Priceline Pharmacy ambassador Samantha Harris will also be attending the Festival of Beauty event next month, modelling one of the beauty trends.

The Festival of Beauty campaign is “a celebration of all things beauty.” For Priceline Pharmacy, unveiling the trends created in partnership with Whitney and Rae reinforces the retailer as the beauty authority and as a priority destination for Australian beauty lovers.
