A glorious bridal look by Jorge Luis, large photo, was created with two ponytails, one placed high, one lower, backbrushed for a polished look on the sides. He then gathered the two, sprayed, and added white flowers on the lower side. Bottom Left: A “faux bob” with an amazing architectural finish by Jiwon, Privé, Laurent D Salon with curls manipulated into finger waves, a white flower not showing on the other side.   Bottom Right: Laurent D’s half up, half down beauty was backcombed to one side for a casual effect, a small section crimped at the front to simulate a veil. Keke Cifferello’s makeup for Tom Ford included a stark streak of glittered green over the eye and, bottom right, Velvet Cherry Lipstick.

These sweet brides were presented at the Ines Di Santo New York Couture Bridal Week show for Fall 2017. The designer has a sense of humor, and taste.  Playful, whimsical faux iced desserts were perched charmingly on top of velvet headbands and the backdrop was a huge wedding cake, inspired by a French patisserie.  The gorgeous gowns were very romantic and very beautiful. The hair, by Matthew Swinney, L’Anza had soft wisps, loose buns, a French-girl look . To see the album with more inspiration, click HERE

Gorgeous glam gowns at Idan Cohen’s New York Bridal Fashion Week Show for Fall 2017 were seductive, sexy, most for confident brides. The gowns were often highly ornate, with intricate beading and embroidery, some with interesting appliqué details here and there. The natural-looking hairstyles, by Ammon Carver, L’Anza, had waved accents around the face with a few strands flowing freely at the front, hair draped gently over the ears, deconstructed in texture at the back of a low pony caught elegantly at the nape of the neck. Some wore jeweled headbands and tiaras, by Justine M. Couture.  For more amazing bridal gowns and inspiration, click HERE

Twin Peaks TV Series Returns – 2017

RE-POST – CLICK FOR MORE INFO AT THE END.
When Twin Peaks first aired in 1990-1991, it scared me silly. It was very weird. But I never missed an episode. Having recently seen a few scenes from those early episodes, not sure how I will feel today about the return 25 years later, the continuation of the goings on due to premiere on ShowTime May 21 at 9 pm ET/PT.   Hope to be just as into whatever they come up with to replace whatever happened to Laura Palmer in the cult tv series, directed then and now by David Lynch, created and written then and now by Mark Frost and David Lynch. Kyle MacLachlan is back as Special Agent Dale Cooper and some of the old cast, like David Duchovny, Lara Flynn Boyle, Sherlyn Flynn, Joan Chen and more. The new cast is said to include Naomi Watts, Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Amanda Seyfried, Monica Belucci, Ashley Judd, Jim Belushi, Michael Sera, and more. Can it be?  Can’t wait to find out … Stay tuned …

(May 21.  Saw first episode.  It is very weird.  Weirder than ever.  Is it the past … or is it the future?  Goodness knows what it is !!  To find out more, click HERE )
