Meryl Streep Transforms from Prada to Julia

She looks very refined in "PRADA"...

Meryl Streep, a 60-year-old award-winning actress doesn't quite look like the mirror image of the famed TV chef, but with her head of brown curls, crinkled eyes, wide smile, and faint dusting of powder, she utterly becomes her. With some help from a longtime friend, makeup artist and hair stylist - J. Roy Helland since early 80's.

"He's a collaborator in everything she does, and the hair and the makeup is just part of it. I think he's an extra pair of eyes for her in every single way," said "Julie & Julia" director Nora Ephron.

"Meryl has a very angular, almost chiseled face, very strong cheekbones. The nose is quite dominant, with nice, full lips. But I think an awful lot of Meryl's look comes from within her, and what she's portraying," said Engelman, governor of the makeup and hair stylist branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. "I think what works so well is the makeup doesn't jump out at you. You don't want to see a set of lips walking into the room, and an actress behind them," said Engelman, Cher's primary makeup artist since 1986.

In "The Devil Wears Prada" Streep's magazine editor has a white poof of hair and icy, strong eyes to complement to her high-fashion wardrobe. "She looks very refined in 'Prada,'" Engelman said. "The eyes weren't overly made up but they were very strong, like they were looking for you, those piercing eyes."

"It's this thing called acting. Many actors could do this, but Meryl has the chops to do it, and the guts to really go for it," said Ephron. "It's a combination of her hair, her makeup, her clothes, her height, it's everything." read more

Anna Wintour : The Devil Behind her Prada

Talking of fashion and lifestyle magazine, no one captivates the hearts of everybody except for VOGUE America.

The September issue is the most "killer" one, garners the most attention and revenue. Thick as a telephone book, raging with ads and sets the tone for the next fashionable season.

Behind the success is a fearsome American Vogue editor, Anna 'Nuclear' Wintour.

As quoted "Truth is stranger than fiction."

Does anyone remember The Devil Wears Prada, the movie adaptation of the novel about life at a New York fashion magazine, in which Meryl Streep played the despotic editor who reduced her staff to jelly, tears and occasionally, nervous breakdowns? Written by Wintour’s former assistant Lauren Weisberger, everybody thought it was based on her old boss, who has been at the helm of the magazine since 1988. But nobody really believed that it was a true depiction of her. Surely Wintour - or Nuclear Wintour, as she is often referred to - wasn’t that bad? Surely Streep’s character was just a gross Hollywood exaggeration? more reading...

She is truly "The devil behind her Prada"

Prada at Ms. Universe Beauty Pagaent

The Miss Universe competition is in 58th year and still making history. I wish that the House of Prada will showcase its haute couture in the upcoming years of the Ms. Universe Beauty Pageants by sponsoring the event organizers.

Every girl grows up with the dream of being a princess and only some go on to realize it. Dressed in the finest gown with a glittering crown adorning on her head, wave to the world at with strong feet! The World's most prestigious beauty pageant The 'Miss Universe contest' has been creating such fairytales for more than five decades.

The annual international beauty contest is organized by the Miss Universe Organization. This quest for the worlds most beautiful began in 1952 and was founded back then by the California clothing company Pacific Mills. It was acquired by Donald Trump in 1996 and is currently jointly owned by Donald Trump and National Broadcasting Company (NBC).

This would be the greatest challenge to the House of Prada since we are talking "HAUTE COUTURE"!

Haute couture is made to order for a specific customer, and it is usually made from high-quality, expensive fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finish, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques.

Do you think the House can afford to do it?

Season's Sexy Prada Shoes

"FUSION" is a buzz word in the world of fashion right now.

The "IT" handbag has been replaced by the "IT" shoe. Gladiators were hot, but towering, decorated and strappy platforms are an even bigger kick in the aggressive-shoe trends.

The two must-have styles are clearly related, but there's been some improvement, thanks in part to chunky platform soles, woven textures and more sex appeal.

sexy Prada shoes are not a new phenomenon. It's been on the runways for all seasons, apparently, its because of the rocker-femme kind of mood that's coming back into fashion.

Feel the Italian spirit...

Prada Spring 2010 Menswear Collection

The designer, Miuccia Prada came up with some latest fashion for men in a Milan where the overriding feeling is of designers twist from their own previous body of work. The Prada Spring 2010 Menswear Collection was covered and mixed with colors ranging from black to white made up of quotes from confusing movies to a great new stage set of wet shade walls.

You could imagine the show seems a somber summer moment because of quotes in giant two-foot-high script and the charcoal foam seating to the collection itself, largely made up of various takes on gray.

Miuccia once said: “A movie, in black and white,” floated around with trays of the ideal, color coordinated cocktail – a White Russian. Even though it was restricted in color, this is one of the most innovative shows ever in Milan collections.
