Neon by any Other Name
Neon is everywhere in every price point for Spring 2012. Neon yellow is the perfect hit of sunshine. Wear it with other brights or go neutral. Either way you will shine.
Neon Yellow Skirts go with more color or neutrals

Gloria Baume, Fashion Director of Teen Vogue is always about more is better. Rather than go with neutrals she adds other neon colors to add even more punch to her yellow skirt.
A wise editor once instructed me, when I was a young assistant at a one of my first shows, to take it all in. The hair, makeup, length of the skirts, width of the trouser, height of the shoe. So much to see + absorb. Love when a fresh runway look is easy to recreate like the faux bobs below.
No fuss, no muss just tuck those locks into your scarf or sweater...
I adore this, edgy but easy to create look of the loosely wrapped ponytail shown at Herve Leger. Hipster elegant at it's best..
Love the clean face with strong brow as well. More on brows in the post below.
Get These Brows
I started out in life with brows like this or even thicker. Seriously I was about 10 hairs away from having a uni-brow. Through the highways + bi-ways of brow trends, I can unequivocally state Thick is Better.
New York's Spring 2012 runways, eyebrows were groomed, thickened, and penciled in becoming the focal point of the face. The brows on Donna Karan's runway (above. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, inspired by Yasmin LeBon's brows, a popular model in the late 80, kept a well defined brow using both pencil and powder in short, quick strokes.
For us mere mortals without the benefit of an in-house make-up artist, minimal waxing followed by a brow tint seems to do the trick...
