Britney Spears married Sam Asghari, wearing Versace with makeup by Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury

The princess of pop married her long-time beau Sam Asghari over the weekend, and the celebrations were nothing short of show-stopping. From a star-studded guest list that included the likes of Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez, Madonna, Paris Hilton and Donatella Versace, the floral-filled extravaganza proved that Britney is living her best post-conservatorship life. 

Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury, celebrity makeup artist and niece of makeup maven Charlotte Tilbury, was the maestro behind Britney's bridal beauty look, which called for 24 of the brand's most-loved products. According to Sofia, the brief was: "healthy, glowing, lit-from-within skin and signature bronzed smokey eye, very soft contour and a gorgeous pillowy-pink lip." 

Lucky for us, the brand took to Instagram to share every single product Sofia used on W-Day, which included seven skincare products and teased the arrival of a new skin innovation due to launch later this year. 

For Britney's complexion, Sofia used a selection of Charlotte Tilbury's best-sellers like its Beautiful Skin Foundation and Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray. Britney's brows were dressed up with Brow Cheat in Soft Brown followed by Brow Fix to keep them in place. Her signature smokey eye was recreated using the Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette, Eyes To Mesmerise shadow in Oyster, Exagger-Eyes Liner Duo and Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes. Sofia worked with three of the brand's peachy cheek hues to warm up the apples of Britney's cheeks, including Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer, Beauty Light Wand in Peachgasm and Cheek to Chic in Pillow Talk. The finishing touch? A wash of Charlotte Tilbury's best-selling Lip Cheat Lipstick in Pillow Talk

Emma Jing and Taylor Groves are doing another collab fashion show

Local fashion favourites Emma Jing-Cornall and Taylor Groves caught our attention in February 2021 when they collaborated on a unique offsite show held at a large car park adjoining the Papatūnga, Parnell Station, presented in collaboration with designer Rawiri Brown and in conjunction with Auckland Art Fair and Auckland Arts Festival Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki.

The Massey University alumni are preparing for their second collaborative show this weekend on Saturday 18 June in Remuera and we look forward to seeing what this creative pair have been working on. We love how they have been fostering a more collaborative way of working and allowing a slower approach to designing fashion.

Monarch-inspired manicures are taking over TikTok 

There's a new nail trend taking flight in 2022. Seen everywhere from makeup palettes to clips and eyeliner, butterfly beauty is one of the most whimsical micro-trends to emerge out of Y2K beauty. 

Butterfly nail inspiration abounds on social media platforms like TikTok, Pinterest and Instagram, with a number of people sporting manicures in homage of the monarchs. Whether subtle or OTT, expect this nail trend to stick around well into the warmer weather, with shades of burnt orange, canary yellow and electric blue imitating the butterflies found in nature. 

Celebrities have wholeheartedly embraced the trend, too, with the likes of Dua Lipa and Demi Lovato paying homage to our winged friends with flashy, gemstone-adorned butterfly manicures. 

Megan Thee Stallion, Amber Valetta, Chloe Sevigny make cameo appearances in the new Mugler spring/summer 2022 campaign

Mugler's latest campaign celebrates gravity-defying designs and the brand's signature brand of sexy in a campaign and dance video inspired by ballroom culture directed by @Torso.solutions.
