HOW TO TAKE ON THE ROSE GOLD TREND LIKE A CELEBRITY

South African model and actress Nomzamo Mbatha rocked a pink and beige two-piece dress at the event where the color to wear was black. Surrounded by others wearing beautiful and elaborate black gowns and pants suits, Nomzamo really stood out with her bold choice of dress. The two-piece mini-top and floor length tailored skirt showed some of her best features to perfection.


Nomzamo proved that less really is more as she accentuated her bare neck with her hair pulled up into a bun. No necklace, bangles, or bracelets distracted from the simple but fitting dress.

She looked gorgeous in every shot, and she clearly had fun at the event that was put on to promote the newest Samsung Galaxy model. She wasn’t the only celeb to show up either – Tumi Morake, Nasty C, Sarah Langer, and Amanda Du Pont all joined her. Tumi Morake wore a similar style to Nomzamo in the form of a black dress and a heavy golden necklace, but Nomzamo’s choice stole her spotlight. She radiated with confidence and joy as she was photographed from every angle.

Nomzamo’s only the latest celebrity to join the dusty rose trend. From clothes, to nail polish, to hair – rose gold is the color to wear in 2017.

Sitting alongside things like the mermaid and unicorn obsessions that are spreading fast, this classy color will suit any occasion, from a bathroom selfie to a red carpet gala. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything that doesn’t have a version in this gorgeous color, so whether you’re looking for new make-up brushes, a handbag, or eyeliner, you’re covered.

Nomzamo isn’t alone – plenty of stars have worn dusty rose to galas and events. Hollywood in particular can’t get enough the color, with golden accessories and simple black or white statement pieces. Don’t be shy about mixing colors either – this one goes with just about everything else.

If Nomzamo Mbatha’s dress didn’t convince you, Kylie Jenner’s hair definitely will. If you’re still on the fence, you may want to look at some accessories to really get into the trend. Start light with something like a Galaxy S8 case,and work your way up to full length designer gowns in this beautiful color.

If you’re more for a daring statement, Amber Rose’s gold bikini might just be the way to go – and great motivation for some last minute beach body workouts! Whether it’s a dress, hairstyle, or accessory, you won’t be able to avoid the simple beauty of rose gold. Make like Nomzamo Mbatha and enjoy the trend while it lasts.

Who knows what will be in style next? We’re happy to ride the dusty rose gold trend all the way to the end.

Other Brands

The fashion world clearly loves the timeless alphabet, with multiple brands reworking it into various charms and accessories over the past few years. Chloé, Fendi and Louis Vuitton are some of these, just to name a few, and now fresh from its Winter 2017 collection is Céline and their take on the alphabets in the form of bold brass charms that look like little wooden twigs.

What’s unique about these alphabet charms lies in its raw and organic appeal, slightly imperfect joints, rough textural finish and the versatility to be attached onto a chain, jersey cotton or even to zipper pulls for that unique edge.

There’s also something about these alphabet charms (SGD750 each) that gives us the Christmas vibes, which would make them apt as a gift with the season of giving just around the corner. In other words, head soon for a look, have fun piecing your name together or better yet, have them all wrapped up and take them home for yourself and your loved ones.

7 SURPRISING FASHION FACTS YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW

Other Brands

When it comes to fashion, trends come and go. From ancient times to now, the world of style and beauty has seen so many changes. Here, we take a look at some unusual footnotes fashion history. From designer rivalries to deadly trends and common misconceptions, discover seven crazy fashion facts below.

FLAPPERS DIDN’T WEAR FRINGE

When one thinks of style for the 1920’s, a common go-to is the fringe dress. But that is not so according to Beverley Birks,  an exhibition curator, who spoke to Racked in 2017.“Fringe [was] not the most common thing you saw in the 1920's. That would be beadwork or embroidery,” she reveals. As with many things, this can be tied back to Hollywood. Movies set in the 1920’s but made in the 1950’s took on modern interpretations of retro style. But nonetheless, the myth of flappers wearing fringe still persists to this day.

FOUNDATION WAS MADE WITH LEAD

Nowadays, consumers are more aware of toxic chemicals used in makeup products. But back in ancient times and up to the 19thcentury, lead-based powder was all the rage. Portraits of famous figures such as Queen Elizabeth I feature faces with pale, milky white skin. Many people used ceruse foundationwhich included white lead as the main ingredient to achieve this look.

Interestingly enough, Queen Elizabeth I used the foundation to cover scars which came from a bout of smallpox in her 20s. Lead poisoning can ultimately lead to death and takes years to take effect. Sufferers had a variety of symptoms such as insomnia, headaches, paralysis and ironically enough--skin blemishes.

COCO CHANEL AND ELSA SCHIAPARELLI HAD A BITTER FEUD

Today, Chanel is one of fashion’s most famed names. But in the 1930’s, designers Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli were bitter rivals. Schiaparelli was known for making fashion forward designs compared to her peers. "Of course they were rivals, privately damning each other with faint praise. It is also claimed that Chanel once succeeded in setting Schiaparelli on fire,” Chanel and Schiaparelli biographers Rhonda K. Garelick and Meryle Secrest toldHarper’s Bazaar.

Chanel once referred to Schiaparelli as “that Italian artist who is making clothes.” After World War II, it was the house of Chanel which succeeded while Schiaparelli’s business went bankrupt and she closed it in 1954. In 2013, the Schiaparelli brand was officially relaunched under the creative direction of Marco Zanini.
