The Emmy's Fashion 2014

Once again, the Emmy's have come around. As per usual there have been hits, and some seriously disturbing misses. 

Bright corals, blues and neutrals were definitely the favourite colour choice when it came to the gowns and as always the men never put a step wrong. 

So let's take a look into the glamour - and horror - of the 2014 Emmy Awards. 

Natalie Dormer

Natalie looked absolutely gorgeous in her J Mendel gown. Not many people can pull of a high neckline with a high shoulder cut, but Natalie managed it. She also maintained class while doing it! And I'll keep saying it again and again, orange and black are the best combination! Orange is the new black? Come on guys its the Emmys!

Julia Roberts 

You guys know how much I love Elie Saab, and today is no exception. Julia looked phenomenal, and a picture if class, in her ES gown. And the embellishments? To die for!

Ty Burrell

Ty looked very classy in his navy suit. Although I couldn't get a name for his designer, I believe he managed to pull of the sexy nerd with the glasses too! 

Heidi Klum

I have to put it to Heidi, she looked beautiful this year in a Zac Posen ensemble. Her gown was simple and elegant. The cut framed her body perfectly and the colour did wonders for her. The sleeve dropping at the back just added the final touches the dress needed. 

Matthew McConaughey 

Matthew took a new spin on suits with his Dolce and Gabbana outfit. In a strange way, he managed to pull it off and show that yes, navy and black do work together, thank you very much. 

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu in Zac Posen? Nailed it. She is just so beautiful in this outfit... And in general. 

Allison Williams

I don't know why, but there is something completely cute about this Giambattista Vallli Couture gown. Very anime and sophisticated at the same time! The detail underneath the lace on the bodice is also very complex, appealing to me even more. 

Lena Headey

Lena, you're mysterious and sexy. I like it. This Rubin Singer number may be basic but it suits her attitude and personality. Definitely an eye catcher in black!

Lena Dunham 

I hate to say it, but Lena kind of looks like a cupcake here - Or one of those barbie cakes! I can appreciate the splendour of the layered skirt but I feel the top needed to be a more fitted style to balance out the outfit. 

Christina Hendricks

I just find this whole Marchesa gown frumpy. The gatherings are just too all over the place for me, and makes Christina look a lot older than she is. Perhaps a good dress for Meryl Streep? 

Laura Prepon

Laura, no. What is it with the stars and the design making them older than they are! You just look strange. Like a mix between an air hostess and an alien. Sorry, not sorry.

Mayim Bialik

Hold up people. Did Princess D's dress get dyed blue? Minus the puffy sleeves and lace of course. Alas, I do not find this gown attractive AT ALL. Beautiful lace gone wrong! And definitely the wrong person to wear it. Mayim, wear something that suits your body type!

To be honest I could go on all night long about the best and the worst of the Emmy's this year, because there was many on both sides. However, hopefully I have given you a glimpse into the night and you enjoyed my opinions once again. Until next time people!

"Hold on, I've just got to print my Make-up"

"Hold on, I've Just got to Print my Make-up"
Written by
M&G Founder
Georgia Power

Say What?!

Yes, you saw the heading people. And unless you've been listening to the radio or seen the youtube video, you must think we're crazy - "Print make-up"?

So, if you haven't heard there is now a Printer that can PRINT make-up from the leisure of your own home. You must be asking "But how can such an amazing product ever exist?"

Well it does now - and it's all thanks to Harvard Business graduate, Grace Choi and her new invention, "The Mink". She decided one day, after settling on a business career in cosmetics, that "The makeup industry makes a whole lot of money on a whole lot of bullshit".

"The Mink" a revolutionary make-up printer

So, here is where she changed the world. She took the most important aspect of make-up - the colour - and made a 3D printer that could copy a colour palette from ANY photo on the internet, computer or from your own phone, and make ANY type of cosmetic. All the way from eyeshadows to foundation, people!

Don't have a colour eyeshadow to go with your outfit?
No worries! Just print it off!

Love your best friends lipstick? No worries! Just take a photo and send it to your printer.

If you haven't seen the demo video yet, check it out below. It will blow your mind.

The best thing about this product? You don't even have to leave the house and we could definitely spend less money on cosmetics that are over priced.

The Mink is said to retail at $US300. That is nothing in the world of a girl!

Despite raving like a crazy teenager about this product, the adult side of my mind is concerned about the wellfare of workers in the cosmetic industry. Will many jobs be lost? Can the well known brands like MAC and Nars stick around?

Choi may think she just revolutionised the industry, but she has created a whole new one - and perhaps destroyed multi billion dollar companies in the process.

Seems like a nice girl, though.

Either way, it will be interesting to see what happens...

Melbourne and Georgette will keep you posted on the latest "Mink" news.

The 2014 Met Gala

The 2014 Met Gala
Written by Guest Blogger
Nicole Roberts

Once again the Met Ball has come around! The theme of the night, ‘Tie and Decorations’, in tribute of the late Charles James. Guests were expected to aim for a vintage look – inspired by the glitz and glamour of the Forties and Fifties – to honour the late Charles James.

Of course being the Met Ball, we see some of the best and worst in the fashion world and here are some we just had to talk about!

Kendall Jenner

Kendall’s custom made Topshop baby pink gown was by far one of our favourites for the evening. This dress definitely fit the theme. She looked elegant and sophisticated! Kendall’s first appearance at the Met Ball was definitely a successful one.

Blake Lively

Blake Lively proved why she is one of the sexiest women in Hollywood today. This tight fitted, stylish and classy Gucci Premiere dress definitely showed off her petite figure and fit the glitz and glamour aspect of the theme.


 Once again Beyonce showed us why she is the Queen B. Much like her outfit from last year, Beyonce’s Givenchey Couture dress definitely didn't lack originality. The veil added to her outfit and fitted to the theme that much more. 

Victoria Beckham

Victoria wore a cream strapless gown of her own design, which hugged to her hips and waist and hung down loose over her chest. Victoria and husband David (wearing a Ralph Lauren Black Label white shawl collar tuxedo jacket and black tuxedo pants) showed the world why they are a power couple.

Suki Waterhouse

Suki was by far one of the best dressed of the evening.  Melbourne and Georgette gives her two very enthusiastic thumbs up. This Burberry dress really fit the theme. The elegant, strapless pale pink tiered gown with the red lipstick really was a stand out dress of the night.

Katie Holmes

Katie tried to channel Belle from Beauty and The Beast in a very unflattering yellow Marchesa dress. Lets just say not even the beast would want to dance with THAT!

Solange Knowles

Solange wore a very unflattering 3.1 Phillip Lim Dress. The puffiness made her look plumper than she really is. She reminds me of a sponge. No?

Lupita Nyong’o

Lupita wore a Prada, flapper-esque dress. This is definitely a downgrade from her dress at the Oscars. 

Rita Ora

This Donna Karan Atelier antiqued matter gold, sequined, silk tulle gown was not a crowd favourite. The Tied up shoes and arm didn’t help this outfit either.
Sandra Lee

This custom made Dars Lamb dress was definitely the ugliest dresses of the night, and reminded me of the one from the witch off The Wizard of Oz, but at least Glinda could pull that off.

Until next year!

MBFWA Outfit - Day 4

MBFWA Outfit - Day 4

On day 4 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia I was lucky enough to wear a gorgeous two toned dress by Elliatt.

I teamed it up with a black cape of my own design and a clutch given to me by Portobello PR. To finish off the outfit I wore my gorgeous Zara shoes, Ichu necklace, Mimco watch and Tiffany and Co bracelet.

Rekorderlig Gallery Bar at MBFWA

The Beautifully Swedish Cider brand had a fabulous bar on site at Carriageworks serving our delicious range of Rekorderlig Ciders and cocktails during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.  

I spent quite a lot of time in here, looking over the people coming and going and I loved it. It was also so refreshing drinking my favourite Rekorderlig flavour, Strawberry and Lime.

The Gallery Bar also featured an innovative ‘Street Style’ exhibition by popular Swedish fashion blogger and Rekorderlig ambassador, Caroline Blomst.  

Caroline is recognised internationally for capturing stunning street style trends, as seen on her blog carolinesmode.com & she will be displaying her favourite images in our bar from the Street Style pictures she has taken earlier this year at London, Milan, Paris & Stockholm fashion festivals.  

Here are some photos I captured of the beautiful bar!

The Blank Canvas

Suzie Vella is the proud designer and creator of the gorgeous Sydney label, Pizzuto. I was lucky enough to sit down with her over Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and talk to her about her brand.

Molecular Collection coming soon

Black Canvas Designs

Pizzuto is launching its new collection - Blank Canvas - and I have to say I was super impressed by what I saw.

The thing I love about Suzie is that she is down to earth. She connects to the everyday person, whether they run a small blog - like myself, or a simple university student. She doesn't judge and all her designs reflect this nature. They are simple yet unique, classy yet rebellious, tamed yet wild. 

Suzie and I at the Pizzuto showing

Blank Canvas aims to stay valuable to the wearer for many years and Suzie expressed that she wanted the customers to feel as though they "can style it any way they want!".

My Millennia Orange Gown now available online for $259

Her inspiration comes from those who shop at her boutique and their feedback. She wanted it to be something they want to wear over and over again, to be personal and special.

It was such an honour to meet Suzie - and her amazing and bubbly sales assistant Jade - and I was so impressed by what they showed me I invested in a Pizzuto piece myself - as you can probably see in the photos! I can't wait to wear some more Pizzuto designs in the future!
