Ande como um raio! Sapatos hot rod Prada estão disparando o mundo da moda com saltos de fogo e toca tailfin

Walk like Greased Lightning! Prada's hot rod shoes are firing up the fashion world with flaming heels and tailfin touches


Ande como um raio! Sapatos hot rod Prada estão disparando mundo da moda com saltos de fogo e toca tailfin 

Hailed as a product of the Golden Era of automobile design, American tailfin cars are undoubtedly things of beauty. Perfectly sculptured, with dramatic paint jobs and flourishes like flaming exhaust pipes and highly polished chrome metalwork, they are as desirable today as they were in the Fifties and Sixties when they were first created. In fact, their eye-catching aesthetic makes for fertile fodder for fashion designers looking for inspiration. But few borrow quite so literally from the tailfin's design motifs as Miuccia Prada. 
For her spring/summer 2012 collection, Miuccia designed a collection of shoes heavily inspired by the American tailfin era. Colours are bold Cadillac red and racing green. Flames burst from the back of the shoes in the way they would from a hot rod's exhaust pipe. Detailing on the shoes comes from the highly polished chrome metal work, or the geometric shapes of the cars' tailfins.

The campaign images themselves, all bright colours and slick retro styling, were shot by legendary fashion world snapper Steven Meisel, and starred five new models - Meghan Collison, Natasha Poly, Elise Crombez, Ymre Stiekema and Kathryn Kruger - posing perched on the hoods of immaculately painted vintage automobiles.

Of the hot rod campaign, Miucca waxes lyrical thus: ‘Bathed in sunlight. Fuelled by optimism. Girls and cars stop and stare at the future in this Technicolor mise-en-scéne of desire…The gas station is cast as a central symbol in this post-modern crossroads of new horizons and economic fulfillment, a stage set where fashion, fantasy and the promise of new discoveries collide.’
She can add to that that the campaign features some flaming hot shoes.

From rainbow eyes to a fishnet face, meet the blogger who radically transforms herself for online make-up tutorials

From rainbow eyes to a fishnet face, meet the blogger who radically transforms herself for online make-up tutorials

One day she's a Twenties-inspired flapper, another, a rainbow-eye-lidded warrior.
But even with her talent for artistry and love of cosmetics, Annamarie Tendler has just one hard-and-fast rule when it comes to make-up. Girls, 'wear mascara' she told Today.com.
The 26-year-old has made a face of her canvas, a palette of the world of cosmetics at her disposal and, using the internet as her stage, has created a series of online tutorials revealing her inspirational make-up tips and tricks.

How-to guide: Annamarie Tendler, 26, has given herself some far-fetched looks to demonstrate the make-up tutorials she posts on her blog. From left: Roy Lichtenstein's art is brought to life; dramatic feathered lashes are reminiscent of Black Swan; a silver and blue fishnet design creates an ethereal effect
The professional make-up artist's series of The Daily Face creations at Annamarie.tumblr.com shows what can be done with a bit of imagination when it comes to eyes, cheeks and lips.
Despite the miasma of looks - from the scary to the stunning - the New York local keeps her lists of products simple, her instructions clear and her approach straightforward. As eccentric as some styles may be, they are designed for just about anyone to master.

'I wanted to make something that didn't inundate the viewer with information, but rather offered up a simple concept in a simple way,' she told Today.com.
Her popular blog shows almost-daily pictures, names the products used and gives instructions: 'As in, here is a look, this is how you do it, this is what you use,' she told the network.
A particularly striking - if a little unsuitable for the office - look is pop-art brought to life.

Lip service: The make-up artist clearly has fun with lipstick, from bold orange tones (left), to fuchsia pink (centre) and rich, deep reds (right)
She writes of the Lichtenstein-inspired get up: 'I will warn anyone who tries this out that pulling this one off is a lot like cleaning your bedroom: it looks worse before it looks good.'
Red dots and white background were created using Ben Nye Creme Color in red and white, while the lip colour is NARS Lipstick in Heat Wave.
Another, a sophisticated throwback to the days of flappers, 'was inspired [by] looking at Brassai photos of the 20s,' Miss Tendler writes. 
'Everyone looks so cool and glamorous,' she said of the era - and she fits in perfectly in her new guise, if 70 years too late.

Far-fetched: The 'Vintage Zombie' look was demonstrated ahead of Halloween (left); Miss Tendler's rainbow eyes were to celebrate New York legalising same-sex marriage in June (centre);  This dramatic look was inspired by Brassai's photographs of the Twenties (right)
Her striped, playful rainbow lids were celebratory homage to new same-sex marriage laws in the state of New York, while a ghoulish Halloween rendering is complete with blue veins and requisite fake blood.
Some designs are, thankfully, more prosaic, suitable for daily life in the city. Yesterday's pared-down make-up was, she writes, the result of running late. 
Her instructions, in keeping with being pressed for time, appropriately read: 'For this look I applied the Benefit shadow with my finger to the lid from lashline to crease. This stuff dries quickly so it’s important that you work fast, since after it dries it’s difficult to blend.'

New tricks, from left: Showing how neon green eyeshadow can be a relatively natural look; a flick of bold turquoise liquid eyeliner; a bold red lip for the Emmy Awards last September; working the Sixties look, complete with drawn-on lower lashes
A steady hand and a handful of products ensure a transformation without piling on layers of foundation, TV-ready amounts of concealer and lipstick in overkill - it helps, of course, to be as naturally beautiful as Miss Tendler.
The brunette is clearly a busy woman. 'I need to be generating so much material and I'm only one person, who also works on other shoots and projects,' she told Today.com. 'I find that every couple of months I need to take a two week break.'
One, we presume, without her warpaint in check.
