corinne vitale : best beauty blog

Corinne Vitale is not your average 21-year-old. After taking styling studies, she was inspired to create a fashion blog to explore the intriguing world of fashion. In just a short span of 5 months she has not only won Best Beauty Blog in the very first Style Cookie Awards 2013, she has grown her blog Love's like a Runway into a diary that chronicles everything from the latest beauty products that she stocks up on, to experimenting with fashion in her personal style posts that are equal parts quirky and chic. Her beauty posts are especially compelling as she describes her experience with different beauty products in addition to giving product reviews and beauty tips. The beauty blogger shares her top 5 beauty essentials and her best moments in this exclusive interview with COSC.
1.What's the inspiration behind Love's Like A Runway?
Well, this is hard, I've been loving fashion since I remember myself, but in 2010 when I get out of their army, where I only wore the army uniform. I decided to open a fashion blog and then I started styling studies, and this gave me the most inspiration. I have closed the blog like 2 times but I'm back now from November 2013, for good.

2. What are your top 3 New Year's Resolutions?
1.Lose some weight! 2.Keep writing in the blog and do what I love 3.Success in my B.A

3.  What style of makeup do you love the most {natural, dramatic, bold etc}?
Well, in the everyday I always put foundation, mascara, blush and lipstick, but when I go out I love the dramatic look of Black Smoked eyes in combination with eyeliner. And if I don't have the time I always go for eyeliner and red lips ;)

sasha luss for dior addict.

From Kate Moss to Daphne Groeneveld, the Dior Addict campaigns have always only featured the best, if not the top models of the season. And who better to front the campaign than girl of the moment, Sasha Luss. The Russian clotheshorse has enchanted the fashion world with her platinum blonde locks and stunning ice-blue eyes, and the Dior Addict Spring 2014 campaign perfectly captures her unique beauty in a series of youthful yet elegant shots, styled by Carine Roitfeld and lensed by Steven Meisel. Walking in almost every notable show across the Big 4 fashion weeks and scoring both Chanel and Lanvin S/S 2014 campaigns, Sasha Luss is undoubtedly one of the most in-demand faces of the season {and can you believe she's only 21!}. Her success on the runway as well as commercially is rare for many models, and with the launch of this major campaign there is no doubt that her career can only blossom from here.

at the chanel marché.

I really don't know how Karl does it, like I'm amazed he still has ideas for Chanel left. Season after season, he always comes up with something new to set the tone for the collection and because it's never predictable {from a larger-than-life Chanel farm to most recently a faux art gallery full of Chanel signatures}, he keeps the fashion world guessing what his next elaborate idea for Chanel would be, and it never gets boring. For Fall 2014, Karl Lagerfeld outdid himself yet again - the prestigious Grand Palais venue was converted into a full-blown French supermarket.

 But of course it's not just any grocery store, it was the Chanel Shopping Centre and it was filled to the brim with everyday things, just renamed in Chanel-speak and embossed with nothing less than the interlocking Cs : doormats inspired by Coco Chanel's studio door with "Mademoiselle Privé", Eau de Chanel mineral water, Coco Pops cereal, bâtonnets élégants black cotton buds, Chanel little black tea, Les Chagrins de Gabrielle hankerchiefs, Risotto rice a la Venere Elsa, Boy cleaning mousse, "Lait de Coco" coconut milk, legs of Jambon Cambon, Chateau Gabrielle white wine, Les Confitures de Tante-Adrienne - jams named after her aunt, and these were just some of the glorious 500 or so designer groceries on display. Like kids in a candy store, editors and bloggers were ooh-ing and aah-ing at everything they laid they're eyes on, wandering around the aisles and just being utterly entranced by the spectacle that was the supermarket.

pretty in pink at giambattista valli

giambattista valli fall winter 2014 show15 Giambattista Valli Fall/Winter 2014 | Paris Fashion Week
Apart from the gorgeous dark magenta metallics and the intricate black and white lace frocks, what I loved most about the Giambattista Valli show in Paris were the romantic powdery pink hues and the rose florals that adorned a number of looks in the Fall 2014 collection. Up-and-coming clotheshorse Sasha Luss wore the opening look to the segment, and for the entire time her look was on the runway, I couldn't take my eyes off it . It was the perfect winter coat : a beautiful dusty pink shade on wool, warm enough for those chilly winter days and cut just above the knee making it equal parts flirty and womanly.
Following that were dresses and sweaters with a vintage red rose print and light shades of pink, made in fabrics with the likes of impossibly delicate silk, brocade and jacquard. There was even a pastel pink cocoon coat, which had been a runway trend started in the Fall 2013 season where houses like Dior, Miu Miu and Carven all showed larger-than-life coats in different shades of pink. Valli gave the loose, round, oversized silhouette of the coat a twist of his own, adding geometric flaps to the skirt, and at the same time making it more modern than the usual eveningwear. Although the colour palette was mostly pink and red it was not at all saccharine, instead it was girly and elegant, a very powerful mix when it comes to womenswear collections. We don't need to wear pink only on Wednesdays Gretchen Weiners, besides who can resist a bouquet of roses?
