Backstage with Peter Philips - A Look Into Dior’s Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture Beauty Look 

We still can’t get over the charm that Dior brought to Dubai with its Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture show. Besides the beautiful runway show, the action backstage was amazing. As the models were getting prepared for their runway appearance, Azyaamode got the chance to have a little chitchat with Image and Creative Director of Dior Makeup, the one and only Peter Philips.

In fact, this video captures the essence of the creative mind’s vision for the show’s beauty look. In these few minutes, Peter Philips talks details - from the way this catwalk makeup look was created, to the inspiration behind it, how this look be altered to fit a modern woman’s beauty needs and the way he works with Maria Grazia Chiuri in order to come up with a beauty look for a runway show. And if you think that the entire video is about the show’s makeup look, you’re absolutely wrong, as he also talks about the Middle Eastern woman’s beauty, as well as his list of must-have Dior Makeup products.

CHANEL Flower Festival

Once again, Gabrielle CHANEL has graciously offered us an amazing fragrance. It is clearly an expression of Gabrielle since it reiterates her character of a liberated woman who shook the worlds of fashion and beauty, especially with her efforts to support woman.

This great mixture of four white flowers is dazzling with jasmine, the essence of intensity; ylang-ylang from the Comoros, the essence of radiance; Tunisian orange blossom, the essence of freshness; and tuberose, the essence of creaminess. The latter is known as the most fragrant amongst other plants. It holds a special place in CHANEL’s heart for it’s grown in Grasse exclusively for them and is extracted using a process specific to the House, then it is divested of its usual leather, waxy, green and animal facets. This special composition gives GABRIELLE CHANEL ESSENCE a solar hue that radiates in its beveled square bottle of GABRIELLE CHANEL.

This new fragrance is celebrated by the beautiful Margot Robbie. As she stands in the middle of a whirlwind of white and gold veils twirling them, she dances classily to the music of Halo by Beyoncé. Yet another chapter in the story of the GABRIELLE CHANEL fragrance.
