  It took me a good five minutes to recognize the blonde model sitting in makeup artist Tom Pecheux's chair backstage at Balmain. I moved closer to get a better look, still confused as Pecheux expertly buffed on concealer and tapped on lipstick and highlighter. It wasn't until the model stood up, looked in the mirror, and exclaimed, "Oh, my God, I'm blonde!" that I realized I had been staring at Kendall Jenner. No, Kendall isn't adopting her younger sister's penchant for wigs. It was all part of Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing's plan for his fall show. "Olivier wanted a surprise on the runway, so we're making some of the blonde models into brunettes and some of the brunettes into blondes," said hairstylist Sam McKnight, who used lace front wigs to achieve the fakeout. That meant Kendall went blonde and Gigi Hadid went brunette, as if the two besties swapped looks for a few hours (Jenner called it the #KenGi swap on Instagram), while other recognizable blondes, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Devon Windsor, and Lindsey Wixson, went dark and Alessandra Ambrosio swapped her brown hair for a warm golden hue. The anomaly in the group was Karlie Kloss, who went from dark blonde to nearly platinum. "We initially put the dark wig on her and it looked too heavy," explained McKnight, "so the twist was to go for a bleached-blonde shade." It's hard not to think that Rousteing's "surprise" for the show was just as much about social media as it was about the runway. The wigs were practically made for Snapping and selfies, the models enjoying a few hours to show off a new (and temporary) look. Even the makeup seemed to have been planned with Instagram in mind, Pecheux adding soft contours, lots of highlights, mascara, and a pinkish-nude lipstick dabbed on both the lips and eyelids, all of which defined the models' features in a pretty yet subtle ways. And if you don't believe me, just scroll through your Instagram feed and hop on Snapchat for a few moments. The proof is in the postshow selfies.

Timeless Style. The Wishmaker Simonetta Lein Meets Dancer Karina Smirnoff.

I currently reside in Philadelphia. It's a chilly East Coast morning, and I am in my study, thinking about which celebrity I would like to introduce my readers to next... what new dream and inspirational story shall I share? Like a lot of young girls, I dreamed of becoming a professional prima ballerina. I took classes and performed at my ballet school's obligatory dance recitals, with my mother wildly clapping in the audience and my father beaming with pride. Perhaps it was not my destiny, or my talents simply lie elsewhere, as I came to learn that I was a much better writer and public speaker than I am a dancer. Perhaps, I'll come back as Ginger Rogers in my next life. Yet, I do love watching dance. It truly amazes me how a dancer is able to utilize his or her body in order to tell a story, which translates as clearly as if they were speaking words. So, let's meet a dancer today...and what an extraordinary dancer she is...

Ladies and gentleman, actress and dancer Karina Smirnoff.

From her Wikipedia page: "Karina Smirnoff is a five-time U.S. National Champion, World Trophy

Champion, and Asian Open Champion. She has won the title at the UK Open, is a three-time champion at the US Open, a two-time champion at the Asian Open, a five-time champion at the Dutch Open, and a five-time US National Professional Champion. She has taken second place at the British Open Blackpool Dance Festival and she is the first woman to also ever make the "British Professional Final" with three different partners." Wow...

When you were a child, did you wish for the career and for the life that you have manifested today?

K.S: I'm not sure if everyone dreams of being in the entertainment industry insome capacity, but when I was a kid I definitely did. I wanted to be thebest actress and the best dancer in the world. But then when I got to the age where I had to make a decision about which direction to take my career, I decided that I wanted to be an attorney. I always loved great "law"movies and thought that it was going to be just like that. But my passion and love for the world of dance and art was always there. And when my

dancing started to get better and better and great results followed, I realized that I can actually have a dream and live it too. America is the land of opportunities where your dreams come true.

**I am very inspired by how she pursued her dream in a very pragmatic way. She had a dream, she

chose to pursue a more structured and safe career path, and ended up following her original dream as her unbridled passion and her natural talent for the craft forced her to. I find this very inspiring as many find themselves afraid to chase their dreams, due to a fear of potential failure or a fear of rejection. I say, never fear following your dream, no matter how big or small, as your dream is the key to your lifelong happiness. I cannot think of anything more depressing than living a lifetime of regret...

Name a wish that you had for your life or for humanity that finally came true.

K.S: My wish comes true every day for me. I get to wake up and do what I love to do the most. Being a dancer as a young adult, before all these amazing shows like "Dancing With The Stars" and dancing movies came about, I learned fast that dancing wasn't a career choice that people supported and respected much. But today, everything is very different. The rebirth of the world of dance gave all of us the platform for living our dreams and be so grateful for.

**Film and television, especially the ongoing trend of reality competition shows like "So You Think You

Can Dance", "America's Best Dance Crew" and "Dancing With The Stars" have provided dancers with a much larger public platform to showcase their talents to the masses. Prior to the rise of this category of broadcast media, dancers were limited to performing on stage in a dance troupe, in musical theatre, or if you had the talent of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly or Gregory Hines, on the silver screen. I'm very sure that performers like Karina are inspiring a whole new generation of dancers to pursue their dreams and art...

If you were granted one wish for humanity or for our planet, what would it be?

K.S: Be kind to one another. There is so much humanity has to be grateful for--some things that our ancestors could only dream about, and instead of being united for a greater good, today we have more conflicts and breaking news than ever before. I wish to obliterate selfishness and negativity, and to leave a planet for our future generations the way G-D intended it to. And I wish to wake up one morning, turn on the news, and watch breaking news about humanity doing kind, giving, loving, and selfless things.

**This is exactly why I created The Wishwall Foundation- a space allowing you to manifest your dreams and pay it forward to others, allowing them to fulfill their wishes and goals. In this time of global strife, it is truly imperative that we try and help one another, as much as we can, through random acts of kindness... Thank you Karina for your projecting your beautiful wish onto the universe.

If you could go back in time and ask one question from anyone from history, who would you want to meet and what question would you ask?

K.S: I was very close to my grandmother, so I would go back and talk to my grandma and ask her all the questions I never got to ask while she was alive.

**I share the same dream with Karina. My grandmother died of cancer when I was eight, and although I remember her very well, I still have so many questions that I would have loved to ask her while she was alive.

Please tell me what influences your unique sense of style?

K.S: I've always been in love with 1960's style for both men and women. Men were slick and women were feminine. I believe today we have a lot of influence from that era. We see more and more cuts, styles and patterns that are inspired by that period. And two of my favorite fashion icons of all time

are Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Their fashion style is absolutely exquisite and timeless.

** Dear Karina, I live very close to the house where Grace Kelly grew up, and I take a lot of pride and

inspiration in that. I love the style of the 1960'as well...truly timeless.

Who is your favorite fashion designer or brand right now and why?

K.S: I am absolutely obsessed with Alexander McQueen and Alex Perry and BCBG Max Azria. They are all very different. Alexander McQueen is daring, at times dark. yet so unique. Alex Perry has found an incredible connection between feminine sensuality and modern flare. Max Azria has designs and stylesthat can make you stand out in any company, event or situation. Gorgeous pieces from every day to black tie gala.

**Three different fashion designers with three unique points of view.

What is your fashion mantra

K.S: My fashion mantra is quiet simple. It's not about your body type orbudget. It is about finding clothes that will suit YOU best and that will suit YOUR personality and attitude. Individuality should be celebrated, and you can do it with your sense of style.

** Individuality should be celebrated, uniqueness should stand out, and diversity should make you proud. A wise man once said: "Be yourself, everybody else is taken" Thank you, Oscar Wilde.

And, thank you so much Karina for you kindness and inspiration.

Make wishes come true.

From Philadelphia, Simonetta Lein The Wishmaker.Read more at:evening dresses

Stone,Crystals And Pearls

(Photo:evening dresses)

Rose quartz, amethyst, pearls, amber, turquoise stone, onyx, aquamarine, labourite, and Swarovski crystals are just a few of the materials used to create bold, classy, elegant, and unique statement pieces designed by Michelle Henry.

Owner and designer of Designs by Michelle, Michelle Henry told Outlook that her passion to design unique statement pieces started 20-plus years ago.

She improved her skills by taking private classes in jewellery-making, before opening a jewellery store in Toronto, Canada.

Henry's personal tragedy of losing one of her sons made her realise that she wanted to spend the rest of her life doing something she enjoys - making jewellery. "I did not want to spend another day working just for the money. I wanted to do something I like and enjoy. And that was jewellery," Henry told Outlook.

Tired of the corporate life, Henry relocated from downtown Toronto and started to devote her time and energy to her passion. "Every morning, I would look forward to the day ahead," Henry said.

Her creativity is inspired by nature and her love for fashion, but, most of all, the needs of her diverse clientele. "I am quite at ease flexing between different styles," Henry said.

Outlook met up with Henry while she was on a visit to Jamaica. "I want to bring unique jewellery to Jamaica. Something different and so unique that would allow clients to stand out looking bold yet classy and elegant," Henry shared.

The designer and supplier said her long-term goal of returning full time to her place of birth is inevitable. "I have six sons, and my youngest will be 10 years old. I felt it was time to start preparing for my future. By the time he leaves to go to school (at age 18), I should have my business well situated in Jamaica with a good clientele," Henry said.

Henry lives by the mantra, 'If you never take a chance, you never had one' hence her venture into Jamaica.

She advised that if you never pursue your dreams, you will never know what could have been. To wonder every day what could have been is life filled with regret.Read more at:yellow prom dresses uk
