About maryamald

My name is Maryam Aldosari. I’m from Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This is my first experience in blogging and since fashion is one of my main interests I decided to share with you the latest fashion news that will definitely interest every fashion-addict. The Fashion Radar is a fashion blog for every fashion lover. TFR provides readers with weekly features about fashion industry, clothing, and personal style. I will be covering many things such as specific items of clothing and accessories, trends in various apparel markets, celebrity fashion choices and street fashion trends. I will also cover fashion at all levels from the biggest names to the smallest indie designers. I believe that everyone regardless of their income, size, age, or nationality can be fashionable. I also think that getting dressed should be fun, wearing is supposed to say something about who we are, and fashion is about more than trends, designers, logos, celebrities. It is more about people, life, art, experimentation and joy.

Here at PYP we try to draw inspiration from different outlets – wallpaper prints, clothing collections, etc. Today’s tutorial was inspired by a printed notebook we fell in love with. Filled with scalloped edges & great colours for the summer, this design is fairly easy once broken down into steps.

Step 1: After applying a base coat (we recommend CND – Toughen Up) paint nails 2 coats of a nice bright white – we used Sally Hansen Whirlwind White. This creates a great blank canvas to bring our design.

Step 2: Using China Glaze For Audrey & a medium sized nail art brush, paint 3 large circles coming from the base of the nail. It’s best to create the center hump & move outwards.

Step 3: Using Essie Big Spender, a lush red-violet creme that pops against the aqua & a larger dotting tool create a scalloped edge –…

Trend Alert: Round Glasses

Standard

Square spectacles? So last decade. This summer, it’s all about circular frames.

Forget about scarves, capes, or lightening bolt make up. It’s the round classes that stricken the world’s fashion in 2012. They have celebrities, fashion experts, and design houses taking cue.

Vintage geek goggle glasses for males and females were spotted on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Ralph Lauren, Zegna and Lanvin.

From the runway to real life, many celebrities are also adopting the look. Lady Gaga, Sienna Miller, and Mary Kate Olsen have all been spotted wearing round frames.

I honestly really love round classes, but too bad they doesn’t suit my face, square sunnies suites me more, so make sure they suit your face well before thinking to obtain them.

Rizzoli Editions presents a new book Stars in Dior, which is coming out in France this May and in the U.S this September. The book features the most iconic stars around the world in outfits by the couturier. Therefore, it includes a collection of 250 images; obtains from movie scenes and photos from popular shoots with annotation by journalist Jérôme Hanover.

Stars in Dior includes photos from Marlène Dietrich to Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman and Elizabeth Taylor, to reveal the most glamorous and elegant outfits worn by the stars of the silver screen.

We don’t know if Dior’s most recent models Marian Cotrillard or Mila Kunis are featured in the book, but I think it is a brilliant idea and a good collectible for fashionistas around the world and Hollywood fashion people who love, love, love their images and often attempt to reinvent them.

As I mentioned before, Stars in Dior will be available from Rizzoli Editions this September priced at $65.00.
