According to the Hollywood’s biggest A-listers, crystals are a lot more than a beautiful stone that would look just perfect on your bookshelf. With the launch of Kim Kardashian‘s first fragrance Crystal Gardenia, it seems that Hollywood is obsessed with crystals more than ever. Apparently, stars swear by the healing powers of crystals as much as they love crystals all over their red-carpet gowns. From Kim Kardashian West to Spencer Pratt, take a look at the video to find out why the Hollywood’s biggest stars are obsessed with crystals. Spencer Pratt is the most crystal-obsessed star! The end of the video explains it all.
Kim Kardashian most certainly named her first fragrance Crystal Gardenia for a good reason. The reality star revealed that her friends gave her crystals after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. It’s believed that particular crystals can emit positive energy that can directly affect your mood and emotions. Her sister Kylie Jenner is also a believer in the healing power of crystals. Some people who practice meditation like to meditate with their favorite crystal placed in front of them. Others carry these stones in their bag or around their neck everywhere they go. Crystals are currently trending in Hollywood, but the practice dates from ancient times.
The healing with crystals is different for everyone and depends on what you want to change in your energy. Apparently, crystals can restore your energy on many levels. According to spiritual teachers, they can clear unwanted energy, dissolve blocked energy, increase the flow of energy and increase positive energy.
There are even experts that claim to heal with crystals. In case you are interested in something like that, here are a few things to expect. During these sessions, the subject lays down while the practitioner places the crystals on different energy points (chakras) of the body. The healing with crystals sessions can last from minutes to hours. To avoid any confusion, the healing power of crystals can’t improve a medical diagnosis. The final goal is to make the subject feel better. At the end of the day, that’s one of the most important things in the frenetic world we live.
Among other celebrities who believe in the healing power of crystals are Victoria Beckham, Adelle, Katy Perry, Miranda Kerr, Kate Hudson and Andy Warhol. Victoria Beckham keeps them backstage her shows, Adelle uses them to ease her stage fright, while Miranda Kerr carries a crystal wand in her purse at all times. Besides celebrities, many non-famous people swear by these gems.
The haute couture fashion house Dior continues its successful anniversary exhibitions. During this year’s Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week admirers of Christian Dior’s designs had a chance to attend the “Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams” fashion exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Starting from August 27 until November 7 the brand will celebrate its 70 years of existence in Australia. The anniversary exhibition named “The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture” will feature over 220 haute couture pieces as well as photographs and sketches. The materials will showcase the brand’s amazing work from 1947 to 2017. Spectators will have a chance to enjoy 140 fully dressed mannequins.
The fashion exhibition will take place at the 156-year old National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. Dior’s anniversary celebration is expected to be one of the most successful fashion exhibitions in the gallery’s history. The event is curated by the senior curator of fashion and textiles Katie Somerville and designed by the NGV’s exhibition designer Peter King. The designs will be spread over 20.075 square feet space and divided into 7 sections. Each section will represent Christian Dior’s signature designs as well as the amazing work of the 6 creative directors of the brand.
“The Atelier” section will include a live presentation from two Dior staff members who will guide the audience through a construction of a Bar jacket. The second section “The Dior and Australia” will place an accent on the brand’s relationship with the David Jones department store chain. The next sections will focus on the work of the creative designers through the years.
The pieces were carefully chosen from the Dior’s archive as well as 12 other institutions. Some of the designs are from private lenders. Just recently the supermodel Miranda Kerr revealed her mesmerizing wedding gown in an exclusive interview with Vogue. The current creative director of Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri had the honor to design the wedding gown for the beautiful Australian model.
The exhibition will be the biggest Dior retrospective ever held in Australia. The tickets are already available to purchase. According to the NVG over 12 000 tickets have been sold for the Dior’s exhibition. Somerville confirmed that this is the largest pre-sale for a fashion project in the history of the NGV. Until now 300 tickets priced at $1579 have been sold. Many big names in Dior’s history will be part of the exhibition’s program. Svetlana Lloyd, who walked for the designer and traveled to Australia in 1957 will have a speech together with the long-years project manager Vincent Leret and the headpiece designer Stephen Jones.
A very successful marketing technique of the beauty brands is collaborating with celebrities or beauty influencers. Many celebrities are representing different beauty brands and use their influence to promote their products. Some celebrities, on the other hand, use their influence and media exposure to launch their own beauty lines. The number of celebrities who entered the beauty business is growing every day. Take a look at this short video to see the 10 celebrities who have their own very successful beauty lines.
Just recently we witnessed the enormous success of Kim Kardashian West’s KKW Beauty line. She first launched crème contour and highlight kits and recently announced that the powder contour and highlight kits are coming soon.
Salma Hayek launched a CVS line of color cosmetics back in 2011. According to Salma, Nuance was created to bring the exotic ingredients to every woman. Considering her exotic accent and her Mexican origin, the beautiful actress sure knows a thing or two about exotic ingredients. Nuance disappeared for a while, and last year Salma’s line came back with more exciting products. The line has affordable prices and is available both in the CVS stores and online on their website.
Another successful celebrity-owned beauty brand is KORA Organics. The supermodel Miranda Kerr left Victoria Secret in 2015 and completely devoted to her cosmetics line. KORA Organics is a luxury cruelty-free brand co-founded by the model with the help of organic chemists and formulators from Australia. The brand offers a range of skincare products that contain only natural and certified organic ingredients.
Jessica Alba also owns her own beauty line. She founded The Honest Company in 2012 offering eco-friendly organic products predominantly to parents. Later she expanded the product range adding multiple beauty products available online and in many brick-and-mortar stores.
It seems that starting a beauty business is very appealing to a lot of celebrities. We can probably expect many other A-listers to start their own beauty lines in the near future.
Jumpsuits are probably one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing you can wear. They are currently making a huge comeback and are the choice of many celebrities. These onesies are available in many different designs, and each season they get better. It doesn’t matter if you are opting for a simple and chic look or an elegant and glamorous occasion. For the simpler versions, you can go with denim, khaki or floral jumpsuits and rompers. And if you have that special wedding or party, a little sequin won’t hurt anybody. Jumpsuits can be worn in any season. When you decide to go with this clothing piece you don’t need to overthink and mix and match several separates. Just put them on, throw on some good accessories, and you are ready to go.
Jennifer Lopez is the celebrity that looks good in everything. The one thing that she has really mastered is wearing jumpsuits and rompers. She has them on during her shows, on the runway, and for everyday wear. We all know how much this Latina loves sparkle and sequins. That is why she has several unforgettable looks in embellished jumpsuits. Sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid, as the biggest trendsetters also tried this trend. Other influencers, such as Kendall Jenner, Miranda Kerr, Rihanna, and Emily Ratajkowski already rocked this trend. Here is some celebrity inspo on how to wear jumpsuits this season.
The model Miranda Kerr and Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel tied the knot almost two months ago. They got married in their family home in Brentwood, Los Angeles with an intimate ceremony. Less than 50 people were invited to their wedding celebration and among the attendees were several models. The man behind Snapchat, Evan Spiegel is known for being very secretive. To assure a complete privacy he sent black limousines to pick up the guests at previously arranged checkpoints. Besides couple paparazzo photos of guests arriving at the ceremony, the public had to wait for nearly two months for official pictures.
Considering the fact that Miranda Kerr is a former Victoria Secret Angel and a founder of the beauty line KORA Organics, she knows all things fashion and beauty. Her Snapchat was in the center of the attention because fans were expecting exclusive wedding photos and videos. Two months later the Australian model finally shared snaps from the intimate wedding on her Snapchat. Besides that Vogue managed to get a behind-the-scenes look at her wedding gown.
Vogue accompanied the model to her final fitting and captured her in the mesmerizing custom made Dior gown. The creative director of Dior Maria Grazia Chiuri had the honor to design Miranda Kerr’s wedding gown. Just for the records, this is the very first wedding gown that Maria has designed as a creative director for Dior. The model contacted Maria only couple months after Evan proposed her. Chiuri accepted Kerr’s request without hesitation. Miranda Kerr gave the initial idea for the dress and Chiuri brought her fantasies to life creating a breath-taking fairytale-like gown. The wondrous gown was inspired by the legendary Grace Kelly who wore one of the most memorable Hollywood wedding dresses of all times. Grace Kelly wore the infamous gown at her 1956 wedding with Prince Rainer of Monaco. Miranda Kerr’s gown featured long sleeves, voluminous skirt with floor-sweeping train and discreet embellishments. The gown radiated with simplicity and glamour at the same time. Miranda Kerr complemented the gown with a mesmerizing floral headpiece by Stephen Jones and mile-long veil. The model was covered from head to toe, opposite of the sultry lingerie she used to wear when she was part of the Victoria Secret’s crew.
“I’ve had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian. But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back. My greatest sources of inspiration have always been Grace, Audrey Hepburn, and my grandmother, who at 80 has an effortless chic: a nice pant, a white blouse, a scarf, a little heel,” the model told Vogue
Her husband Evan Spiegel also wore a Dior suit. Even though this wasn’t a traditional wedding ceremony, Miranda’s son from her previous marriage with Orlando Bloom served as a ring-bearer. Her 6-year old wore a navy 3-piece suit by the same fashion house.
Miranda and her Snapchat bae are not an ordinary couple, therefore their wedding was no ordinary celebration as well. To preserve the privacy, the famous couple added a white canopy over the garden. This prevented any helicopters or drones from filming their private moments. Additionally, Miranda and Evan had a ban on social media including Snapchat. That is why the media knew very little about their wedding to this date.
Unlike other couples, Miranda and Evan started their wedding day with yoga. Then the model cooked her husband’s favorite meal, a slow-roasted chicken with turmeric and lemon. It may seem weird that a woman who is about to get married in a couture Dior gown cooks on her wedding day, but apparently, Miranda is a simple girl. The caterers followed her recipe to make more chicken for their guests.
Miranda changed into a short and lacy number for the second half of the celebration and sang karaoke. While many girls dream of a big luxury wedding, millionaires like the supermodel Miranda Kerr and the Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel enjoyed a small private wedding in their backyard.

Unstoppable Miranda Kerr is adding denim designer to her already astounding resume, as the model-turned-designer just joined forces with Mother Denim for an exclusive capsule collection, which is already available for purchase at MotherDenim.com.
Of course, since the collaboration is between Miranda Kerr and Mother Denim, it treats us to the perfect line of supermodel-approved jeans and denim aplenty, which will not only spice up any wardrobe, but will also benefit Sydney’s The Royal Hospital for Women Foundation that helps save lives on a daily basis.
“Being involved in this creative process is something that I enjoy and the fact that it’s for a great cause was the icing on the cake,” Miranda Kerr explained. “The hospital provides so much support for women and assistance for mothers and their babies.”
The exclusive 12-piece Miranda Kerr x Mother Denim capsule denim collection combines Kerr’s unconditional love for denim (she refreshes her denim wardrobe every six months!) with Mother Denim’s notorious high quality materials, and even filters each one of the pieces through Kerr’s supermodel-inspired fashion lens. The latter set Kerr on a journey to the Seventies and Nineties, the main motifs of which served as the source of inspiration for this capsule collection.
“I must say I was kind of looking to Jane Birkin when designing the collection, but I feel there’s also a little bit of like Cindy Crawford in the ’90s as well,” she told Vogue. “You’ll see some pieces are little ’90s and then others are a little ’70s. There’s a classic jean which is like Audrey [Hepburn]–inspired as well.”
With the Miranda Kerr x Mother Denim capsule collection being so versatile in designs, it means that it is possible for us to find basically anything from Birkin’s flared jeans to heroin-chic-inspired high-waisted designs. The only thing one cannot find in this lineup is the notorious low-rise jeans, which are currently making a huge comeback but are not something Kerr actually fancies.
“One thing I’m not that fond of though, is a low-, low-cut jean. That’s just not me. I’ve heard that it’s making a comeback and I just cringe at the thought. I don’t know if short legs and a long body looks appealing, and I don’t want my stomach hanging out either. That’s why I like a high-waisted jean which tucks everything in,” she continued.
Among the 12 pieces the collection includes, Kerr’s favorite is the high-rise flair one, as its design goes hand in hand with everything and also helps elongate the legs. The capsule collection also features a denim skirt, t-shirts with positive messages emblazoned on them, and of course a jumpsuit.
Meant to be worn with everything, from sneakers to t-shirts, flats and even denim jackets, Kerr’s staples make us wish for more collaborations that see her as a designer!
The Miranda Kerr x Mother Denim 12-piece capsule collection features price tags ranging from $105 to $325.
