Short Skirt and Mini Skirts 2009 Collection

A miniskirt, sometimes hyphenated as mini-skirt, is a skirt with a hemline well above the knees – generally no longer than 10 cm (4 in) below the buttocks; and a minidress is a dress with a similar meaning. A micro-miniskirt or microskirt is a further abbreviation of the miniskirt and short shorts are the shortened versions of the shorts
The popularity of miniskirts peaked in the "Swinging London" of the 1960s, but its popularity is since still commonplace among many women, mostly teenagers, preteens, and young adults. Before that time, short skirts were only seen in sport clothing, such as skirts worn by female tennis players.
From the ancient Greek tunic until the military tunic of Roman times, the very short tunic was exclusively worn by slaves and fighters. In the Middle Ages they were worn under the armour.

During her theatre performances in the Folies Bergère in Paris in 1926, Joséphine Baker wore a sort of miniskirt made from bananas.

In the 1950s, they could be seen in the science fiction films Devil Girl from Mars and Forbidden Planet.
Mary Quant ran a popular clothes shop in Kings Road, Chelsea, London, called Bazaar, from which she sold her own designs. In the late 1950s she began experimenting with shorter skirts, culminating in the creation of the miniskirt in 1964—one of the defining fashions of the decade.Quant named the miniskirt after her favourite make of car, the Mini.
Owing to Quant's position in the heart of fashionable "Swinging London", the miniskirt was able to spread beyond a simple street fashion into a major international trend. The style came into prominence when Jean Shrimpton wore a short white shift dress, made by Colin Rolfe, on 30 October 1965 at Derby Day, first day of the annual Melbourne Cup Carnival in Australia, where it caused a sensation. According to Shrimpton, who claimed that the brevity of the skirt was due mainly to Rolfe's having insufficient material, the ensuing controversy was as much as anything to do with her having dispensed with a hat and gloves, seen as the essential accessories in such conservative society. The miniskirt was further popularized by André Courrèges who developed it separately and incorporated it into his Mod look, for spring/summer 1965. His miniskirts were less body-hugging, and worn with the white "Courrèges boots" that became a trademark. By introducing the miniskirt into the haute couture of the fashion industry, Courrèges gave it a greater degree of respectability than might otherwise have been expected of a street fashion.[citation needed]. An even more prominent French fashion designer, Yves St. Laurent, began to show shorter skirts in his fall/winter 1965 collection, including his famous "Mondrian" dress (inspired by the work of painter Piet Mondrian), a trend that he continued with throughout the 1960s, although he became more famous during this period for introducing the concept of the formal trouser suit for women into haute couture.

Fashion designer Rudi Gernreich was among the first U.S. designers to offer miniskirts.
Upper garments, such as rugby shirts, were sometimes adapted as mini-dresses. With the rise in hemlines, the wearing of tights or pantyhose, in place of stockings, became more common. Mary Quant cited this development in defence of the miniskirt:

"In European countries where they ban mini-skirts in the streets and say they're an invitation to rape, they don't understand about stocking tights underneath."

During the mid-1970s, the fashion industry largely returned to longer skirts such as the midi and the maxi. Journalist Christopher Booker gave two reasons for this reaction: firstly, that "there was almost nowhere else to go ... the mini-skirts could go no higher"; and secondly, in his view, "dressed up in mini-skirts and shiny PVC macs, given such impersonal names as 'dolly birds', girls had been transformed into throwaway plastic objects". Certainly this lengthening of hemlines coincided with the growth of the feminist movement. However, in the 1960s the mini had been regarded as a symbol of liberation, and it was worn by some, such as Germaine Greer and, in the following decade, Gloria Steinem, who became known for their promotion of women's issues. Greer herself wrote in 1969 that:

How to braid your hair for Men

Who says hair braiding is for women only? Whether you’re looking for male hair braiding styles for your Caucasian hair, such as French plaits, or for African braiding styles, such as cornrows, you’ve come to the right place for plaiting ideas.
One hot hair braiding look is the Legolas braid, of The Lord of the Rings trilogy fame, ideally suited for men with straight medium to long hair. This hairstyle consists of three braids: two very slender braids that begin at the sideburns and one long herringbone plait started at the crown of the head. Most of the hair is left free-flowing. You can also copy other Elvish braid styles, such as Elrond’s, which you will find similar to the Legolas braid.

If Middle Earth looks are not you, however, try cornrows, ideal for thick, curly hair of any length. You can have this hair braiding style applied straight across the board or in complicated circular or geometric patterns. Or you can settle for some braided dreadlocks a la Rastafarian - best if your hair is shoulder length - or some awesome-looking two-strand twists. Athletic braids are also incredibly suited for men. Since these braided hair styles last much longer -cornrows
, for example, last two months - make sure that you consult a hair stylist before braiding. Your hair needs to be in optimum condition before submitting to any hair braiding stress.

Elegant Make Up from Kim Kardashian
♥Kim Kardashian's make up allways looks flawless during events and in her show 'Keeping up with the Kardashian's'. How does she do it? Kim was kind enough to let us in on her secrets and posted her make up tricks on her blog. Find out below what products Kim uses for her flawless look!♥
Then I put on Intuit ‘Photo Shoot.’ Intuit is a great company and I love the names of their products. Photo Shoot is a make up primer. I put it on after my moisturizer, which basically is like a moisturizer that will fill the pours on your face which will help set the foundation so it will last longer.
#2 I use Cle De Peau concealer stick (it’s super expensive, but works for me). It comes in two colors, I use Ocre, which is the darker of the two. I also use M.A.C. concealer (which comes in a little pot) if I run out of Cle de Peau. Everyone’s color is different but I use NW25. I put the concealer under my eyes because I absolutely hate dark circles! I also use concealer to cover up blemishes!
#3 After I put the concealer on I put on Make Up Forever liquid foundation. I mix one pump of No. 5 and two pumps of No. 4. I also have No. 3 for the winter time when I am really pale. I mix the foundations to get the perfect color. I blend them with the coolest make up brush. Its the M.A.C. brush No. 180.
#4 Since I hate dark circles, after the foundation, I put on a little more concealer just under my eyes since the foundation makes it darker under my eyes. I use a lighter concealer from M.A.C. NW30 in a little lipstick tube-looking container and I select ‘moisture cover.’
#5 To set the foundation I lightly brush on with a big powder brush M.A.C. Select Sheer Pressed Powder NC 30, then to make me a little tanner I lightly brush on M.A.C. Powder NW 45.
#6 Now its blush time! I’m obsessed with blush! I use a color called Gingerly to warm me up and give me a little color and then add a pink color called Cheek to give me rosy cheeks. I just started getting into cream blush and find it works a lot better and lasts a lost longer.
#7 Time for the eyes! My favorite part! I first put down a M.A.C. Paint pot in a light color that matches my skin called Painterly. I just use my finder and put enough onto cover the lid. This creamy shadow makes it so that the powder eye shadow does not crease. Like, if you wear make up all day you will see that the eye shadow begins to crease and get oily, but if you put this paint color down first it won’t! I love cream shadow and use the color cream pots too! I love colored shadow; so it depends on the color depend of shadow I plan to wear: If it’s black smoky I use Carbon by M.A.C.; if its Grey smoky I use Knight Divine or Print; if it’s brown smoky I use Embark by M.A.C. I love a fresh shimmery look as well and use M.A.C. Pigment called Tan. Its so pretty! I love bright colors for eye make up! I absolutely love Make Up Forever and don’t think anyone does pigment colors better than them. So again, depending on what color you feel like wearing, go look at Make Up Forever’s colors to choose from.

Bronzy Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial

Every year we see new trends in the world of makeup and fashion, but one trend has come and refused to leave: smokey eye makeup. If you can learn how to apply this look correctly you can transform your face from the boring girl next door into ethereal sex kitten. Smoky eye makeup is irresistible on any female face, even if you aren’t blessed with naturally bright beautiful eyes. Men and women alike cannot help but do a double take when they see a woman with this confident goddess-like look.
The most attractive feature on every woman’s face is her eyes. If you’re lucky to be a chocolaty African American woman, you can certainly enjoy the beauty of African American eye makeup. In this short tutorial, you’ll be introduced to a few African American eye makeup tips and ideas to make your eyes stand out wherever you go.

*Keep your undertones in mind while selecting the right eye shadow for yourself.
*For warm complexions, African American eye makeup that ranges between orange and honey, to rust and cinnamon will be the most flattering.
*For cooler complexions, shades of blue, purple, and pink are excellent for African American eye makeup.
*When it comes to eyeliner, the best colors to accentuate your African American eye makeup are browns and brown-black mascara.
*Metallic colors such as those offered by bareMinerals will give a glamorous shine to your eyes.
*Use makeup designed for African American skin to get the best results. Search large cosmetic stores such as Sephora and Macys for makeup lines dedicated to women of color. However, don’t disregard some brands, such as Molton Brown, which cater to all skin types.
*Always wear African American eye makeup that you like. Wearing eye shadow or liner just because everyone else likes it won’t do, especially since makeup should satisfy you and not the world.
The secret to getting the perfect smoky eye look is in blending. You have to make sure the colors that you choose blend together to create the perfect sexy look. First, you need to apply a base coat, or a primer, to keep the makeup from clumping up in the crease of your eye. Next you can apply eye liner, directly above the lashes or in the middle of your eye, or both. It’s best to use a black or a dark purple liner if you’re going for a traditional smoky look but there are many different color combination’s that you can try. To achieve this look you will also need to line your bottom lid with a lighter shade.

Body Painting

Italian BodyPainting Festival 2010 (1/3) -

Body painting, or sometimes bodypainting, is a form of body art. Unlike tattoo and other forms of body art, body painting is temporary, painted onto the human skin, and lasts for only several hours, or at most (in the case of Mehndi or "henna tattoo") a couple of weeks. Body painting that is limited to the face is known as face painting. Body painting is also referred to as (a form of) temporary tattoo; large scale or full-body painting is more commonly referred to as body painting, while smaller or more detailed work is generally referred to as temporary tattoos.
