Beauty Balm Creams have always maintained their fair popularity to those that have great skin but most use as their primer or just their foundation and a refresher. Today, BB Creams are created for just about any skin type but for the incoming warmer months, less foundation and more beauty balm is ideal.
Applying any foundation and makeup in general in a hot room with no AC or fan running can probably ruin a gal's day but these quick non-messy BB creams can be applied with just our hands! We look finished and touched up, it's simply awesome. We all know the awesomeness of BB Creams but most out there in some drugs stores or your fave makeup seller carry BB Creams with SPF in them, even better, almost perfect!
It is safe to say that the Italian fashion label known for its notorious zig-zag print has had a rough past year. If you recall back to the weekend of January 4th, Vittorio Missoni—the marketing director of Missoni and son of the Missoni founder, Ottavio, vanished on a small plane. Vittorio and his wife were traveling off the coast of Venezuela and the aircraft disappeared. With a long, strategic search and no plan of giving up hope, there was never sight of the plane. Despite the horrific tragedy, the Missoni fashion show in Milan still took place and ended with a standing ovation but to an empty stage.

With the nicer temps finally here in Manhattan it's most definitely time to rock short-shorts, maxi-dresses, gladiator sandals, cross-body bags, and cool sunglasses. Being able to wear the latest trends and do so on a budget is most definitely a fashionista's best friend. Kmart has recently launched some pretty amazing looks for summer from Sofia Vergara, Bongo, Attention and Route 66. George was on-hand to style looks with the women of Manhattan and show us that it doesn't take a ton of money to look like a true super-style diva! Style has no price tag and Joonbug loves that notion!
New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s costume exhibition this year was appropriately titled, PUNK: Chaos to Couture. The show examined punk’s impact on high fashion from the movement's birth in the early '70s through its continuing influence today. The show also included original punk garments and recent, directional fashion to illustrate how haute couture and ready-to-wear borrow punk's visual symbols. Various artists and designers put their best foot forward at the recent opening of the exhibition, decked out in their classiest punk-inspired attire. Here are some of our favorite looks from the night!
We all love to watch an original fashion film from time to time. Especially when the names Coco Chanel, Keira Knightley, and Lindsey Wixon are involved. A short film titled Once Upon a Time, directed by the ever-so-fabulous Karl Lagerfeld, was released yesterday, May 9th, starring Miss Keira Knightley as Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. The setting takes place at the flagship Chanel store in Deauville, France circa 1913. Lagerfeld produced this film to honor Chanel’s 100th anniversary

We have discussed the flooded success of H&M on Glam Damn It a few times so why stop now? After all, like we said H&M is on fire and are continuing down an overwhelmingly successful path. So how else can the Swedish label shock us besides gaining Beyonce as the face of the Spring Campaign and designing upcoming Olympic uniforms?
Beyonce may run the world but H&M is now ahead of the game in most recently signing a multi-million dollar contract with...dramatic drum roll please...GISELE. Yes..you read this correctly. Gisele Bundchen; the world's first billionaire supermodel will be joining the ranks with H&M.
