Stella McCartney's new skincare is available on Sephora.com. It's called Care, and is an eco friendly, organic skincare line. The line even carries it's own ethical charter. Now if only we could more people and organizations to do that.
Here's a quote from Stella on the line :
" Care is formulated with 100 percent organic active ingredients and zero percent petrochemicals and silicones. Officially Ecocert-certified as organic and ecological, the gentle formulas are completely free from chemical preservatives and are protected by simple airless packaging, when required. The fragrance is also made from 100 percent organic essential oils, so your skin can really benefit from nature's resources to help ease the stress that everyday life brings. "
This is a luxury skincare line and priced accordingly. Cleansers are 35.00, treatment products begin at 64.00 There is a nice welcome set to try also. The packaging is a simple, off -white, and leans minimalist.
I look forward to sampling the line. The more natural something is the better, I think, and I have no doubt that much work was put into making this line top notch. ( Now if we could only get Stella to smile more in photos)
If anyone has tried it or has any insights, let me know

Each year, I look through to see which dresses I think are Oscar worthy, and this year , to my surprise, it came from Armani Prive. ( I usually pick a Valentino). This is one of the best collections from this house that I've seen in awhile. This dress is simply stunning and would make one of those lovely nominated ladies rule the red carpet. I can especially see this on Helen Mirren, although she usually doesn't do sleeveless.
Another look from Armani is this pantset. Not an Oscar look, but unique and beautiful. I am loving all the hats on the runways this year.
You can't see the makeup well in these photos, but the models have a dark copper/bronze shade on that is a beauty.
Speaking of makeup, I had to include a photo from the Dominique Sirop couture. The makeup here is a bit hard to pull off as is with the white eyelashes, but with a few tweaks it could go real world , real fast. Simply swell.

Ordinary moisturizers work only on the skin's surface. But borage oil penetrates deeper and delivers GLA and its benefits to the cells. As a result, skin cells retain more moisture."

PLA is made entirely out of corn and is said to be completely renewable within the space of 100 days.
The box that the lipstick comes in is also biodegradable. It is embedded with seeds from wild flowers. According to Cargo, the packaging simply has to be moistened with water and then it should start growing.
