10 best perfume commercials ever It s not easy to sell a smell. That why the best fragrance campaigns rely on selling a mood and often involve people everyone knows or wants to sleep with. Enter Brad Pitt: On Monday, Mr. Jolie will appear air max 1 sale in the next big fragrance campaign for Chanel No. 5, the first male spokesmodel in its 91 year career (and with compensation as handsome as he is: around $7 million). The commercial reportedly depicts Brad charming a lady who, it is revealed, isa bottle of Chanel No. 5. Will Brad ad linger in your mind as long as the memories and aromas of these top perfume ads of the past? Here s a list of the biggest, best and most indelible fragrance commercials. 10. Canoe(1981) The hunky guy, the sailboat, the flags, the side ponytail. This Canoe ad is basically saying that if you wear this cologne, you are signaling to women that you are ready for sex from miles away. could make a bottle of fragrance so compelling? 8. Coty Wild Musk(1983) The best thing about this commercial is that it owns its cheesiness. These two cavepeople look like freshmen at Cal State in 1988, and the set looks like it from that volcano number. The fragrance became less about sexuality and more about "having it all." Get a bottle to Anne Marie Slaughter stat! 6. L Air du Temps(1982) Sometimes it just takes a good song to sell a perfume. Amid all the flowery Victoriana, you are told "something s in the air." What is it? To find out, all you need to do is wear a white diaphanous dress, dab L Air du Temps on your neck, and you will be making out with a preppy guy in minutes. Only ashes." It s the unashamed pretentiousness that makes this ad work. The art house cinema quality, the stiff Ingmar Bergman esque actors, the bad poetry, all on a blank stage. It s like you are spraying the movie behind your ears. The Charlie woman looks fun, independent and gloriously nike free 3.0 women free of breast augmentation. Only the "Greatest Movie Star of All" could convince us that White Diamonds is a classic scent and that she hangs around salty seamen as a gambler s moll. This ad is the definitive example of modern advertising self awareness. Goode (who also created the unforgettable album covers and videos for Grace Jones) lets us all in on the joke, while still making this product seem worth buying. 1. Chanel No. air max 90 infrared 5 (1982) Obvious yet oblique; arty yet accessible, Chanel No. 5 campaign is pure marketing perfection. It all makes sense when you find out that these mini films were directed by Sir Ridley Scott. In one, the Inkspots song Don Want to Set the World on Fire plays in the background as a French garden morphs into a piano, then into train tracks and into a city skyline. Huh? A handsome man s face his name is Charles air max 2 enters the frame. A woman Catherine is walking toward him. He has a question for her, she an answer for him. We don t get to hear it, just more Inkspots lyrics my heart I have but one desire? Yet we don t need one, because the shadow of the plane gliding up the Transamerica Pyramid building, and in this next commercial, where it flies across a pool, speaks volumes: A sunbathing goddess lying poolside declares, "I am made of blue sky, and golden light, and I will feel this way forever." Does it make sense? No! But does it send the message that if you wear this perfume a totally wet man will appear between your legs? Yes! BONUS: Jean Nat(1984) It a body splash (whatever that is) but this commercial makes you want to douse yourself with Jean Nat and then go horseracing. It s the definitive ad of woman as power broker. Maybe the worst? "Learn to Be Lonely," "The Phantom of the Opera," 2004 "Chicago," "Les Misrables" and "Dreamgirls" all shoehorned in at least one new song among the Broadway standards, a gambit intended to pad out their nomination totals (none ended up winning the big prize). But there s something uniquely sad about the song from "Phantom," whether because the film didn t make much of an impact at the awards nike free run all black aside from its one new song, or because the opportunity to perform the song was taken away from the movie s cast and went to Beyonc, wearing a chandelier as a necklace.

10 charged in Seattle counterfeit bust SEATTLE Prosecutors have charged 10 people accused of selling counterfeit goods at various locations around the city, including store fronts, private homes and in the back of vans. Ten people Fsaill Dane, Mindy Moschia, Sunday Nwokedi, Mahammadu Drammeh, Abubakkar Sesay, Malamin Banda, Ousainou Sumareh, Ebrima Jobe, Mohamed Toure and Mohaned Kabba each face a counterfeiting charge following an investigation through which detectives recovered more than 40,000 pieces of counterfeit goods worth nearly $2 million in street value. FBI agents aided Seattle police in the investigation that spanned from 2007 to 2008 and uncovered the sales of counterfeit merchandise, including handbags, wallets, clothing, shoes, sunglasses, CDs and other items, according to charging documents. According nike free 7.0 to charging documents, detectives conducted a number of undercover purchases at various location in April and May of 2008, including a brown van parked in the 1400 block of Alaskan Way selling fake brand name purses. Detectives said they purchased a fake Coach purse for $50 at the van run by Mahammadu and Abubakarr. Investigators also visited stores: Seattle Handbags at 1902 Second Ave., Jobe s Urban Gear at 2202 S. Jackson, St. and Toure s Apparel at 2301 S. Jackson St. where air max nike they bought counterfeit items, including a purse, a wallet and a pair of fake Nike shoes at low prices. Police served search warrants at the above locations, as well as the home of Malamin Banda in the 320 block of 22nd nike air max tn Ave. S. before arresting the 10 suspects. After the arrests, at least six of the suspects "admitted they knew the merchandise they were selling was counterfeit," the documents said. Surareh, who claimed to to be cheap nike air max 2013 an employee of Banda at Seattle Handbags, said he did not know it was illegal to sell counterfeit goods. One suspect, Toure, told investigators he began selling counterfeit goods in 2007 "because there was so much money to be made," according to the documents. Toure added nike free trainers most of his supply came from New York. Three of the suspects already have a criminal record. Toure has a prior conviction for loitering for prostitution. Drammeh was convicted of third degree assault in 2003 and driving without a license in 1996.

10 Classic Fashions No Woman Can Do Without A fashion savvy Australian Aborigine once said, "The more you know, the less you need." Translation: It s better to know your way around the classics than have a closet crammed with clothing that is already so "five minutes ago". It s smart to stock up on classics, no matter your personal style. Think Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Catherine Deneuve: air max 90 women always, simple, chic and impeccably dressed. Once you have the classics, you can go anywhere. If you buy pieces that are well made and in good fabrics, they ll wear better, feel better and, of course, look better on you. The fabrics to look for are lightweight wool gabardine, silk, cotton, linen, cashmere, and textured microfibers. nike free woman Go that extra mile and make sure everything fits, especially the tailored pieces. Go to a tailor if something needs to be altered. It s worth nike free 3.0 black the money. Now for those of you who are not the "classic" type, you can still do your own thing. Try a Chanel jacket with jeans or nike air max white a leather bomber with a chiffon skirt. If you re downtown hip with a touch of "goth", just add a leather jacket to the classics along with leather pants and animal cheap air max shoes print accessories. If you re the artistic, creative type, throw on some ethnic or artful pieces to give the classics your own special style. Think Peruvian hand knit sweaters, chunky bracelets or African necklaces. Classics are also good if you re on a budget. They last longer and you ll have fewer mad dashes to the mall to buy a piece just for one evening. If you don t believe us, try on a little black dress or a solid color suit. Add a scarf, several necklaces or different belts. See how many different looks you have?

10 Essential Books For The Fashion Set Every person who aspires to lead a cultured life should start by educating themselves about the personalities and events that have shaped the luxury industry. Here are 10 books that taught me a lot. They re each well written and give real insight on the history and current state of luxury from a business or artistic perspective. Chanel: A Woman Of Her Own, Axel Madsen Madsen s take on Gabrielle Chanel s life has been criticized for failing to fully capture her French spirit, but as a non obsessive Chanel fan (I love her, of course, but I don t count myself among the members of her cult) I found it intriguing. Anyway that critique is to be expected from readers looking for a more laudatory tale. In fact, Madsen handles Chanel well. An incorrigible liar who either re constructed nike air max ltd and conveniently forgot much of her childhood and early years, she would prove difficult for any biographer to profile in total accuracy. Madsen, biographer also of Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, solidly parses her beginnings (brothel life as a child; boutique supported by lovers money; early alliances with powerful benefactors) and thoroughly studies the years she spent in considerable decline. Bottom line: This is a fair assessment of Chanel s life with plenty of details about people, places and gossip to keep it interesting. Ugly Beauty, Ruth Brandon This is a fantastic account of the scandalous history behind L Oreal, the world s largest beauty company controlled by the recently embattled billionaire Lilian Bettencourt. As you may recall, the modern cosmetics industry was significantly impacted by a Polish Jew and a Frenchman with Nazi ties: Helena Rubinstein and Eugene Schueller, respectively. This book tells how they each founded a skincare business, succeeded beyond their dreams and then fought to preserve their empires. The interesting thing here is the difference in vision between Rubinstein and Schueller. While her business was founded on home remedies and her personal charisma, his developed after numerous scientific tests and lab work in his hair dye shop. Schueller emerged victorious, of course; Brandon uses the conflict to question the standards of beauty and the role politics and business play in that arena. A good read. Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster, Dana infrared air max 90 Thomas The best narrative of the development of the luxury industry that I ve read. She expertly chronicles the founding years at Louis Vuitton and Herm the change in luxury in the 1990s and what it all means today. She also offers interesting tidbits like the fact that orange became Herm signature color because it was the only color widely available during World War II. Chapters are devoted to fragrance, wine, handbags and shoes, as well as to the dirty little secret about luxury brands manufacturing products in China. Penny special. Another theme here is that the "luxury industry" is actually a new concept. In fact, the raison d of goods from what we now consider luxury brands (Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada) was originally to serve the aristocracy, not to make money. The idea of turning a profit from these products represents a paradigm shift for the companies and their nike free 5.0 trainer consumers. Diana Vreeland had quite an imagination. Fair warning: Thomas is no fan of Bernard Arnault, and it shows. She is also an unflagging fan of Herm Biased? Maybe. But they re both popular sentiments. Chic Savages, John Fairchild Read this for an insider s look at the fashion publishing world during the halcyon days when Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent mixed with Jackie O, Donald Trump and the Kissingers. Fairchild gives good dish he talks about Babe Paley s scandals, Nan Kempner s shopping habits and the trouble with nouvelle society though the name checking gets a little thick toward the end. Fairchild writes as if he s an outsider observing a ferocious pink nike free foreign world though he s as much a part of it as anyone else. It s all very WASPy but useful for learning about the New York landscape of the 1970s and 80s the stories and the history lesson (and the photos!) are worth the slog. Blow By Blow, Detmar Blow Clearly this is a recount of events from a biased source (Isabella Blow s husband, Detmar). But it still has merit for the reader who wants to learn more about the inner life of England s most eccentric hat lover and the woman who identified Philip Treacy and Alexander McQueen s genius before the world did. Blow gives sweet anecdotes about Issy s childhood, her work at Vogue, Tatler and The Sunday Times, life in the 1980s London party scene and his wife s obvious talent for style. 2014 air max The ending is sad as Blow chronicles his wife s descent into the depression and despair that characterized much of her adult life, but the book is worth the read for the questions it provokes about fashion, art, suicide and mad genius. Her reporting skills are exceptional, as is her sense of story, timing, cadence and style. Here Thurman writes about the outlaws, vagabonds, artists and visionaries with whom any self respecting person should be familiar: Diane Arbus, Coco Chanel, Cleopatra, Anne Frank, Leni Riefenstahl, Charlotte Bront Vanessa Beecroft, Elsa Schiaparelli and Madame de Pompadour. She quotes Richard Avedon on Jean Cocteau and makes Jackie Onassis and Marie Antoinette compelling again, despite the ubiquity of them both. (See also: Colette: Secrets Of The Flesh and Isak Dinesen: The Life Of A Storyteller) Yves Saint Laurent was friends then competitors with Karl Lagerfeld. The End Of Fashion, Teri Agins Like Thomas, Agins, a senior reporter at The Wall Street Journal, puts her reporting chops to good use in this tome on fashion s demise. But while Deluxe focuses on luxury at large, Agins hones her writing toward fashion itself, especially how pret a porter overtook couture as the driving force behind the design houses. Profiles of Emanuel Ungaro, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan and Zoran Ladicorbic starkly highlight just how different fashion was in the 80s than it is now. Agins also dissects how retailers like Marshall Field s and Gap struggle to stay relevant. A decade later, their outlook seems even more bleak. I reread it every year just for the thrill: It s laced with her famously fantastical pronouncements, namedropping and witticisms. Read the book assuming maybe half of it is true. That s part of the fun. This book shows how far he s come from rural North Carolina and the role his devout grandmother played in his life. It s also got great stories from the days when he worked with Diana Vreeland. It ll make you love him more and believe in your own potential. The Beautiful Fall, Alicia Drake This ultimately tragic book shows how addiction and mental illness accompanied the genius bestowed upon Yves Saint Laurent. The glamour and doom of his world in 1970s Paris is alluring nonetheless. The spine of the narrative is the friendship and then fierce animosity between two brilliantly talented designers: Saint Laurent and his German nemesis, Karl Lagerfeld. They had a lot in common. Both grew up as middle class boys desperate to get to Paris, both studied at a Paris trade school for couturiers, and both won international fashion competitions while still quite young. Each also had relationships with men who Drake portrays as controlling: Pierre Berg (in the recent documentary "L amor Fou" he seems to be one of the few stabilizing forces in YSL s life) and Jacques de Bascher, a Parisian nobleman who manipulated Lagerfeld to support his lavish lifestyle. Contrastingly, while YSL was painfully shy in public he gorged himself on casual sex, drugs and egomania. Lagerfeld, on the other hand, was more outwardly flamboyant but shunned the destructive habits his counterpart indulged.

10 Facts about UK Customs Regulations for Gift Givers Knowing all the facts about UK customs regulations is vital if you are sending or bringing holiday or celebration gifts into the UK. A fine, a levy for duties and taxes or, worse, a confiscated package are probably not tops on your gift giving list. Before you bring or send holiday food products, have a look at the very detailed Personal Import Rules Database. Here are 10 relevant facts that will help you avoid more of the pitfalls. 1. Definition of "gift" Not as silly as you might think. For purposes of excise duties and VAT, a gift must be sent from one private person to another private person, with a completed customs declaration, for use by the recipient or the recipient s immediate family. So, if you re thinking of letting a shop ship your present to Aunt Felicity in London, the tax man won t consider that a gift. The same is true if you send someone a gift purchased on the internet. There is one way around this if you like to shop on the Internet and have presents shipped. Use one of the large, international online merchants like Lands End or Amazon and shop with your credit (not debit) card on that company s UK website. air max classic bw The shipment then becomes a domestic shipment, with taxes and VAT already included in the price so no additional duties are required. You can tell you re in the right place because the goods will be priced in pounds sterling. 2. Duty free allowance on gifts mailed to the UK Duty is due on gifts worth more than being sent from outside the EU. Exceptions apply to alcohol, tobacco products, perfume and toilet water for which there are separate duty free allowances. Duty is waived if the total due is less than Rate of duty on gifts mailed to the UK and who pays. If the value of your gift exceeds the duty free allowance of the recipient pays the duty after the goods arrive in the UK but before they are delivered. Duty is waived if the amount due is less than It s impossible to give a general figure for the rate of duty as, unbelievably, there are 14,000 different classifications of goods with different rates of duty for each based on their country of origin. The average is between 5% and 9% of the value of the goods but it ranges from 0% to as high as 85%. 4. VAT on gifts sent from outside the EU VAT is due on gifts worth more than per individual mailed from outside the EU. This is a more generous allowance than goods you order from abroad for yourself which are subject to VAT if worth more than Gifts to more nike free running shoes than one person can be sent in the same package As long as each is individually wrapped, addressed and listed on the customs declaration, then each gift can benefit from the Import VAT gift allowance. Similarly, each correctly identified and declared gift benefits from the duty free allowance. So if you sent five gifts worth each, for five different people in one package, as long as you wrapped them, addressed them and listed them separately on the customs declaration, no tax or VAT would be due on the whole package. If those five gifts were worth more than each but less than each, VAT white nike free run would be payable on each gift worth more than but customs duty would not be required. 6. Completed customs declarations prevent delays, potential damage and extra costs Customs and Excise officials regularly spot check packages arriving by post from outside the EU even during the busy holiday periods. If you don t fill out the customs declaration that lined bit of green paper glued to your package they may open your package to inspect what s in it. Even though packages are opened by Royal Mail employees operating under strict guidelines, and even if everything is completely above board, the recipient will be charged a handling fee before the package can be delivered and the present could be damaged. What if you don t declare banned or restricted goods? Or try to conceal real value on your customs declaration? If you declare banned goods they will be destroyed. But, if you don t declare them and they are discovered, they will be destroyed and you will face a criminal prosecution and potentially hefty fine. So is it going to be your lucky day? Probably not. 7. Cheese and meat products are banned Surprisingly, this is a question that pops up every year. Visitors from the big dairy producing states in the USA always want to know if they can bring their local cheeses or specialty cured hams to friends in the UK. That s a quick no. All dairy and meat products, fresh or prepared, from outside the EU are forbidden. 8. Counterfeit and pirated goods are regularly confiscated and destroyed You know that cute little fake Chanel handbag you bought from the street trader outside Penn Station? Maybe your cousin Bianca in Liverpool would love it but if you are mailing it as a gift from outside the EU, there s a good chance it could be found in a spot check, Besides being destroyed, you or more likely your poor innocent cousin Bianca could be prosecuted. 9. It pays to read a copy of the rules. Potatoes are banned but sweet potatoes and yams are not. And "non manufactured" bark free wood is banned from outside the EU and restricted to five pieces from within. If you re scratching your head over this, think driftwood and the sort of driftwood and pebble art you can pick up at craft fairs. Sniffer dogs are really good at finding that kind of stuff in the post. 10. Weights and measures really matter Some items, particularly certain fresh fruits and vegetables, are only allowed into the UK in restricted quantities. Exceed the limit and all the products will be seized and destroyed. nike free run 2.0 So don t think it ll be all right to send 2.5 kilos of apples instead when only 2 kilos are allowed, or the six packets of commercially packaged seeds instead of the allowed 5. Customs officers don t play pick and mix. If you re over the limit, the whole lot get s thrown away.

10 Important Things You Need To Know Before Buying Vintage Hermes experts to show their wares in Hong Kong. These experts have brought together more than 1000 vintage Hermes, Chanel, Rolex and Patek Philippe nike free run 2014 pieces to make up what Lane Crawford/Blitz has dubbed the Vintage Voyage experience. I got the chance to talk to about what you need to know before making the commitment to buy a vintage luxury item. 1. With so many fakes around, look for Birkin and Kelly bags authenticated by Hermes. The Hermes atelier has a record of every air max 180 piece they ve ever produced according to vintage Hermes expert Nicola Robinson of Maia. 2. That said, consider buying only truly special pieces. By special this means pieces that are no longer in production, one off orders produced only for VVIPs, bags in lizard and ostrich as these are seldom produced, and special sizes like the mini Kelly bags in 20cm which are very rare. Vintage Hermes bags including a one and only in the world ostrich black air max 1 HAC and a very rare 20cm Kelly bag at Lane Crawford/Blitz 3. When buying vintage Hermes bags look at the condition of the bag. Look for scuff marks and discoloration, check whether the clochette lock and key works, look at the hardware, feel for dryness in the leather, and sniff the bag. Years of use and dumping everything from mints to cigarettes in the bag can produce all sorts of odor. While there is a Hermes Spa in Paris that can do refurbishment on bags, it is best to buy something of excellent quality. 4. Robinson considers Hermes bags that are 10 years and older as vintage. 5. With so many watch brands out there, Rolex and Patek Philippe watches are the ones that truly hold their value according to watch experts Daniel Bourn and Eric Ku of Vintage DB and 10pastTen. 6. When it comes to watches, vintage means pieces that are no longer in production like the tiny 1950s 1960s Rolex Chameleon cocktail watch and those Rolex watches with colored stone dials in lapis and coral. 7. When buying vintage watches pay attention to original parts as a vintage watch with original parts will have better value than one A selection of vintage Rolex and Patek Philippe watches at Lane Crawford/Blitz that s been modified with newer parts. Vintage Rolex watches for example will still have acrylic crystal (glass covering the watch s face) since sapphire crystal, introduced in the 80s, is still considered relatively new. 8. According to Seth Weisser of What Goes Around Comes Around, Chanel bags have hologram ID cards to help identify when they were produced. If a card is missing, you should be able to find another hologram inside the bag. This hologram system with a 7 digit numerical code was introduced in the 1980s. In 2006 the house ran out of 7 digit codes and introduced the 8 digit system. That air max 98 said, Weisser, deals only in Chanel pieces from the 80s and 90s with 7 digit codes. 9. More often than not, vintage Chanel bags are less expensive than brand new bags. 10. The vintage market especially in the luxury arena is successful because it is about timelessness. It is about taking something from say the 80s and have it still looking relevant today. This is how Weisser approaches the vintage market. I ve always been interested in fashion and the business of fashion. I write about the latest clothes and trends just as much as I write about the commerce and trade of the industry. I also like to write about how history, art and popular culture relate to fashion.

10 Make Up Big Mistakes And How To Sort It Out If you have dark brown or black hair, you may want to make your face softer by using light brown or even red brown colour on your brows. This will make you look fake and overly made up. So if you have dark brown or black hair, use grey color to fill in your brows. The brow powders are always better than pencils as they will make you look less severe. 3. Fill in the powder on face without cleansing pad first. Actually, you can fill in the powder on your face during the day as it helps to protect your face from uv ray and pollution.

The powder will not make a big trouble to your skin afterwards. 4. Too thick mascara on the lower lashes Brushing mascara on the lower lashes will help your eyes sharper and sparkling. But smudging too much mascara on the lower lashes will make a shade under your eyes and can emphasize the short eye lashes. If you really want to highlight your eyes and thicken the lower lashes, use eye liner pencil (use brown color) draw womens nike air max 90 on the under eyes instead or you can use the mascara without colour to apply. 5.
