Some Supermodels (is it one word or two?) make moles and muscles popular, some make manic panic hair chic, some even bring back Brigitte Bardot and the word Glamazon, but only one has had the power to make a much larger lasting impact.
Who woulda thunk a tiny, cute, alienesque fairy, would become such a driving force in fashion, style, modeling and well just living on the rock and roll edge. But she still manages to look ridiculously stylish carrying and hanging around with her beautiful daughter.
Goddess Moss (as we call her here at thw), has graced countless magazine covers coming in at over 300 and so many ads we couldn't keep track and she topped Forbes list for one of the top earning models of all time!
This all coming from a girl/woman...or giman..(she's really just a girl and woman smooshed together) who stands at least 3 inches shorter then most regular models and whose unconventional beauty has given her the title of The Anti Supermodel.
And to top all of that she designs for one of our fav stores ever, Top Shop. Really?? Really?!!? Yup..she's rad.
Oh, and one more thing...(the most important of them all) ummmm, hello, Johnny Depp!!
P.S. How much does Kate and Johnny's new love, Vanessa Pardis looks alike?? Crazy...or hmm... just sayin :)
So you say what about all of the sex ,drugs and rock 'n roll??? So what! She's a Supermodel.. not a role model (We hope).
And now a few of our fav pics and style moments... please don't cry out of jealousy ...(we are...sniff, sniff)
Still think she is nothing more than just a pretty face? Let's take a look at just a few of the trends she started or brought back...
OMG... we are actually breathing funny... OK, breathe... breathe... in and out...AHHHHH she's just sooo amazing.. right?

And, ummm YES please!
I must admit I got on the mineral bandwagon. It was after seeing my stunning T.W.H. partner, Miss Me, wearing it at my birthday last year. I just about died.. She looked FLAWLESS.
So, of course I asked what was up (mind you, she is flawless and stunning even when she wakes up!!! But this birthday night she was even more glowy and her skin was more perfect than usual that caught my attention. I must find out... I need her skin!
I went (ran) to Sephora and bought (into) the kit. $60 later, yes, I had the glow, but and hour after i was greasy and shiny and my face felt like it had concrete on it. So, I took another route. I wanted something to make my skin look more Miss Me, Leighton Meester perfectionesque but with out the heavy oily feeling.
So I found the next few items that have really changed the way i look at HD make up for better or for worse...
1. Smashbox HD Healthy FX Foundation-
Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! This foundation is great! Over primer (theirs or any other good one) this one did the HD trick. Lightweight, totally blendable and (almost) perfectly airbrushed skin without shimmer or that annoying "glow". But keep a good powder on hand.. if you have oily skin you will need it.
Plus its made with Vitamin C and has SPF 15 for healthier skin and it's not tested on animals!!! YAY
2. Makeup Forever HD Microfinish Powder-
Now I absolutely despise their HD foundation. SO heavy, soooo Brenda Walsh in the '90's. Sure, I had great looking skin in pictures but it looked like colored spackle up close and in person. But their HD Microfinish talc free powder is fantastic. Color free so any skin tone can use it and it just soaks up oil (ewwww..but it does) and virtually airbrushes imperfections.
3. Christian Dior Capture Totale for all our fancy pants girls (or boys)-
This one does it all! Well, we hope so for that price. But it does... it plumps, evens out and perfects skin. Its beautiful finish literally creates and HD ready look. Amazing!
And with SPF 15 and collagen boosting ingredients we are sooo gonna crack open the wallet for this one.
This was the first one I came across. I think it was the packaging and perfect marketing that lured me it. I bought the primer (pricey and so little in the tube) and it turned out to be the same primer as a lot of the others. Nothing new or life changing. But the Blu-ray blush is great!

OK, so today we did a bit of what we like to call blog conservation ;) (in honor of earth week)... we combined 2 posts in one...Bueno and Color Crave!!!
maybe its because it is so cheerful and warm...maybe its because its the same color as a Tiffany box (hee hee hee)
or maybe it's just because it's unexpected and beautiful.
