Femininity Takes a Bold Stance with Basil Soda at Paris Fashion Week
October 2nd, 2012
A brand I have been watching closely for a while is the strikingly beautiful, Lebanese designer, Basil Soda. Strange name yes, but slender, ultra-feminine silhouettes with patterns, graphics and textures of the Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 collection are calling women to order!
Whether short or long, geometry stands out with open skirts, fluidity is conveyed through soft, supple materials, and the body is revealed in cuts that emphasise the shoulders, the carriage of the head and endlessly long legs.
The collection spotlights an obvious intention to work the garment on a body that is now modelled and sculpted, constantly expressing volume and movement. Dresses glide, sensual and conquering; flounces make a startling appearance; colours create a dazzling look with reflecting silver, sky blue and deep black… Dresses are dotted with prints and embroideries that structure their form and delineate the central axis of balance. With cut-outs, transparencies and a mix of lengths, feminine daring equals elegance and no mistake!
I’m in love with every one of these pieces from Paris Fashion Week. The models are divine, with a healthy figure and perfectly poised. The collection is completely wearable and totally outstanding. I want to see more of Basil Soda, and I want to see it come to Australia so that our very own beautiful women can indulge their bodies in this fine couture.
My Paparazzi – Celeb 4 A Day Experience in Melbourne
March 29th, 2012
We all wonder what it’s like to be a celebrity, being followed, photographed, asked for autographs and getting freebies… Some of us wish for this kind of fame! But for those of you, who don’t think they will ever experience this feeling, you can now create it for yourself!
It’s called Paparazzi – Celeb 4 A Day, a Sydney based company that makes all your celebrity and attention seeking dreams come true.
Now active in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, I had the chance to use the Celeb 4 A Day experience and find out what it was really like to be followed and photographed by the paparazzi.
I have taken my iPhone with me and inconspicuously filmed the whole experience from my side of the camera. Check out how crazy it is, and how the paparazzi won’t let you get away, asking questions and doing what they can to get the perfect shot of you!

Trilby Phoenix – Every Piece It’s Own Celebrity…
March 16th, 2010
When I walked into the stunning store on Oxford Street in Paddington, I was drawn to the walls, where many of the world’s most famous artists, actors, models and socialites pose with their Trilby Phoenix creations. I love it immediately.
There are two things that stand out most to me. The weapon of a ring called ‘Noir’ (below) and the ‘CC Skye’ necklace (above), which both are worn by Rihanna. Rihanna is a huge fan of her ‘CC Skye’ necklace, wearing it often in paparazzi shots.
Owner/founder of Trilby Phoenix, Holly Baxter has some big names wearing the brands the store stocks. The endless list of celebrities includes Lindsay Lohan, Victoria Beckham, Alicia Keys, The Olsen twins, Drew Barrymore, Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian, Lily Allen, Lady GaGa… the list goes on and on and on…
Holly says “Like many women, I love following celebrity and international accessory trends. My dream was to bring the most unique celebrity must-haves and cult new designers from around the world exclusively to Australia in a retail environment that would fill the gap between mass-produced chain stores and household designer names.”
