Meilily Product Photos: Kiehl’s Celebrity-Designed Acai Toning Mists!

What do recording artist Pharrell Williams, actress Julianne Moore, artist Jeff Koons, and model Malia Jones have in common? They have all designed limited edition labels for Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, with up to $200,000 of net profits from the sale of the celebrity Toning Mists going to the Rainforest Alliance.

These 100% organic Limited Edition Acai Toning Mists are available in Kiehl’s stores now for $26 for a 6 fl. oz. spray bottle (same price as the regular bottles). These lavender-scented toning face mists are are my current “hot product” picks for Spring and Summer. The limited editions may also be slight reformulations of the regular Acai Toning Mist, which also contains “100% natural origin ingredients” but do not say they are “100% organic.”

Glamour’s Fashion Gives Back – Designer Tote Bags by Jason Wu & More

Meilily Hot Happenings! Glamour “Fashion Gives Back” Designer Totes for Charity!

meilily-glamour-fashion-gives-back-totes-jason-wu-brian-reyesWhat do fashion designers, a women’s charity, and Glamour magazine have in common? Helping others through design!

Right now, as part of Glamour Magazine’s Fashion Gives Back program, you can pick up special designer canvas tote bags exclusively at Bloomingdales NY (or Bloomingdales.com) for $35 each, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Dress for Success!

Glamour got six talented young designers to each design a Fashion Gives Back tote to benefit out-of-work women who need a boost. Tote bag designers include Jason Wu, the young Taiwanese designer who’s dresses have graced First Lady Michelle Obama on her first Vogue cover (and at President Obama’s inauguration), and also Brian Reyes, design duo Bensoni, jewelry designer Pamela Love, Gossip Girl designer Abigail Lorick, and shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo.

Meilily’s two favorite Fashion Gives Back totes this year are from Jason Wu (his black gradient design is both elegant and exciting) and Brian Reyes (his red and black floral tote looks at once exotic yet strangely familiar).

Which designer tote do you like best?

**Stay tuned for more totebag photos, and Meilily just might be giving away one of these designer totes soon!

Bringing you the hottest happenings… Meilily!

Meilily: Giorgio Armani Luminous Skin Foundation

Meilily: Giorgio Armani Luminous Skin Foundation

Meilily Product Pick! Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation!

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to rave about Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation (LSF)! Armani LSF has been one of my favorite liquid foundations ever since I first picked up a bottle in Europe, and I just re-purchased another bottle during a recent Neiman Marcus Armani beauty event.

Let me warn you that the money spent on a bottle of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation could probably feed a small village, but fortunately this foundation › Continue reading

Gilt Groupe Launches Gilt Fuse for Women: Who Will Shop There?

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009 | Hot Happenings, Product Launches, Sales, Stores | 1 Comment

Meilily Hot Happenings & Launch News! Gilt Fuse

Screenshot Gilt Fuse Homepage

Gilt Groupe describes their newly launched Gilt Fuse venture as “a great new way to mix and match today’s most-wanted labels with tomorrow’s hottest emerging brands at prices that are impossible to resist.”

The new Gilt Fuse online shop appears to be a women-only more edited version of the original members-only Gilt that also adds in some emerging new designers at a lower price point.

As a concept, it’s great the Gilt Groupe can target that lower price point, but in execution the jury is still out on how clear the Gilt Fuse concept comes through. As of this moment, I am left wondering if Gilt Fuse is going to target a much younger female audience, or › Continue reading

First Lady Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

Meilily: Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

Meilily: Michelle Obama on the Cover of Vogue March 2009

The March 2009 issue of Vogue Magazine features an historic and inspirational cover photograph of First Lady Michelle Obama, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.  Looking relaxed, confident and real in the cover photograph, Michelle Obama is poised and calm in repose, wearing a beautiful magenta silk dress by Jason Wu.

It just might be true that Michelle Obama really is “the First Lady the world’s been waiting for” as Vogue Magazine has dubbed her.  Michelle Obama, who can pull off wearing both designer fashions as well as off-the-rack clothing from J. Crew and White House | Black Market, does not come across as stiff or guarded as First Ladies sometimes can.  We just can’t seem to get enough of First Lady Michelle Obama’s reachable style and down-to-earth presence.

Moreover, if the Michelle Obama March Vogue cover is any indication, this spring we are in for a treat, recession or not.  I expect that magentas, fuscias, and wines will be fashionable shades for spring, and that Taiwanese designer Jason Wu, › Continue reading
