Accessories are often the best part of an outfit. You can wear the simplest monochrome ensemble and transform it into the trendiest outfit with some extra details. And we have to let you know that spring 2019 will be all about standout accessories of all types. Paris Fashion Week brought so many trends in the jewelry, hat, and eye-wear departments. Check out the statement accessories to shop in Spring 2019.
SS 2019 PFW got us obsessed! The dresses we’ve seen during the most sought-after week of fashion month were out of this world. We can’t get over the romantic glamour of Valentino or the fierce designs of John Galliano. Feast your eyes on the dresses that literally made our hearts skip a beat.
As we are approaching the end of another Paris Fashion Week, it’s time for a recap. Since not everyone has the time to spend hours on the internet looking at the Spring 2019 collections, we rounded up the 8 best that were fabulous and out of this world. You’ll see designers such as Alessandro Michele and Gucci, Anthony Vaccarello from Saint Laurent, Virgil Abloh with Off-White and more. They all stuck to their recognizable aesthetics, but strongly respected the DNA of the labels they design for.
Maria Grazia Chiuri relied on timeless elegance for her Christian Dior Couture Fall 2018 lineup. It is a year of a royal engagement, royal wedding, and multiple tours where the new Duchess captivated the world with her ultra-feminine style. Ladies around the world are definitely rethinking modest elegant dressing and the new Christian Dior collection might be the right place to search for building a Duchess-like wardrobe.
Maria Grazia Chiuri offered plenty of conservative choices for duchessing around. From classic black dresses to an endless spectrum of nude choices, her couture designs are a feast for the eyes. In a time when the beauty industry is teaching the world a lesson that nude is not one color, Chiuri is doing the exact same thing through her designs. From pale nude dresses to deeper taupe and brown numbers, there are multiple options in the Christian Dior Fall 2018 Couture collection.
The entire lineup feels much more intimate and timeless than her regular sheer offerings with exposed logo underwear and feminist slogans. “Couture is about something hidden, ” Chiuri explained to Vogue. “We have this big opportunity to work with different definition of time. Craftsmanship is long, it is a dream for the future,” the designer added. The couture collections reflect the intimate relationship between the designer and the client. Although we love seeing those naked Dior ensembles in the spotlight, Maria Grazia Chiuri is making sure that her designs are suitable for off-the-red-carpet events too.
However, if you are a fan of the naked fashion and want to have your own free-the-nipple moment, the Christian Dior Fall 2018 Couture collection sure has a lot to offer. For a Bella-Hadid-meets-Dior look, there is an array of completely sheer dresses mostly done in nude color. It’s important to note that Chiuri still kept the silhouettes very elegant and feminine. There is no need to sacrifice on the couture aesthetic while flaunting whole a lot of skin. After all is sort of an artistry to show off your nipples in an elegant way, but Chiuri is well-aware that her Dior gals can pull it off.
The Christian Dior Fall 2018 Couture involves a lot of luxe and class and is meant for women who aren’t obsessed with the latest trends. As with every couture collection, it’s not only about how it looks, but how it feels and makes one feel. This time Chiuri stepped away from her recognizable loud feminist aesthetic and relied on classic silhouettes instead. Without a doubt, she is capable of doing everything with excellence!

Finding the perfect foundation can be so time consuming, costly, and just a pain. You may try one in the store, and like it there, but take it home, and it looks completely different than it did when you purchased it. Then there are the ones that don’t agree with your skin, the ones that are too matte, and of course the ones that don’t have enough coverage. We have narrowed down the most flexible and top-rated foundations for you to try, saving you hours of time and oodles of dollars. Scroll through our picks to read and shop. 1. Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation Dior is no stranger to creating some of the top favorites in the beauty game. This medium coverage foundation is our number one pick. Great for sensitive, normal, dry, oily, or combination skin and containing SPF 35 (an uncommon SPF for foundations) makes it hard not to love. It stays in place for up to 16 hours, diminishes the appearance of pores, and leaves your skin with a luminous matte finish. Available in 24 shades. Buy Diorskin Foundation For $52.00 Here.
Brands are making it a habit to introduce new makeup launches on runways. Aside from the iconic Pat McGrath who regularly does that, now Dior also teased something new. For their Cruise 2019 show in Chantilly, the brand’s makeup artists used only products from the Backstage collection. This is a debut more affordable makeup line for the luxury label and we’re here to bring you all the details. Dior’s artists gave the foundation, eyeshadow palettes, makeup brushes, lip products, brow palettes a test run and every product passed with flying colors.
The Fenty effect is taking over the beauty world. Now all makeup labels are trying to expand their color range and offer more for ladies with all skin tones. The Dior Backstage collection will start off with the Face and Body Foundation available in impressive 40 shades. Peter Philips, the creative and image director of Dior makeup had a strong say in the creation of the line. For the foundation, he wanted to include 6 different undertones and a waterproof hydrating formula. In the following months, the label promises to release more colors, to satisfy the requests of customers. The word is that Daniel Martin used this exact foundation for Meghan Markle’s special day. It will cost $40.
“It’s a lightweight, face-and-body foundation that’s easy to apply, buildable, and long-lasting with a dewy finish. We did a lot of research. We received a lot of feedback from our regions — from our local marketing teams and counter employees — about what shades they were missing, which ones were best sellers, etc. If we created a line based on all the feedback we received, we would have 400 shades, so we had to narrow it down to 40 to start off with, but there will definitely be more. We want to see what the customers say about these shades and then go from there.”- Philips said about the foundation.
The beauty line will also feature a number of brushes priced from $25 to $59. Another great thing about the launch is that Bella Hadid, Dior’s makeup ambassador, designed the Backstage contour palette. One of the best releases is the Glow Face palette that includes shimmery highlighters priced at $45. The label also introduced several eye palettes with a base primer available for $49. Let’s not forget brows and lips. The first product features three different pans in one, available for $35. If you are not a huge fan of lip palettes, the Backstage one ($49) will most certainly change your mind.
Now, this is what we call “luxury can be affordable”. Although all of the other Dior makeup goodies are a bit on the pricier side, you can now shop for good quality but with lower prices thanks to this line. The whole Backstage collection is already available at Dior.com. Starting from June 15, the full product range will be available in Sephora stores as well as online.
