"Aura" The New Swarovski Fragrance

Swarovski  is embarking on a new collaborative journey  as it enters the U.S with the perfume vets at Clarins Group to create Aura.
“Jewelry is pretty much the strongest self-expression of a woman, and fragrance is like invisible jewelry,” according to Swarovski creative director Nadja Swarovski.
The heart of the fragrance is a prism of energy, a fusion of amber, benzoin, and white musk. Three pure and noble olfactory vibrations become charged with energy, transforming into more intense, luminous rays of clear light.

Lanvin RTW Fall 2012 - A Strepitous Anniversary-Party Mixed With A Rainbow Of Colors On Curvy Silhouette

 Alber Elbaz throw a fashionable party for his tenth year helming the brand, before his stunning fall show, The New York Times notes the presence of "six or seven" large birthday cakes and a lot of champagne.
The show  began with a Lanvin rainbow, focusing mainly on a curvy silhouette :  the first one in green, then a purple jewel-hued peplum dress, followed by one in yellow that fell into a rapture of ruffles at the back, then one in red that rippled, another in red strapless this time and then one in cobalt with folds at its back, the looks finished with bright gloves, stoles, plastic-and-mirror surrealist jewelry and shoes soled in crystals.
In between were black fur and leather jackets, high-glam golden brocades with matching boots,  Party dresses with double skirts of pouf and puff, cocktail dresses, in water colour and lace and sassily strapless with a magenta or orange fur slung across the shoulders and a charming luxurious black dress on  Karlie Kloss.
And at the show's finale, Elbaz showed off his pipes, singing "Que Sera Sera" for the adoring crowd.
