The night started out first at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.
Glamorous Italian label Roberto Cavalli opened its flagship store in Singapore and I was there for the launch party!
Known for dressing Hollywood stars such as Beyoncè Knowles, Charlize Theron, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone, Roberto Cavalli’s style is distinguished by for his prints, which are central to his vision and convey his love for nature and his unbridled creativity. Flower motifs, animalier patterns, feline spots and jungle themes are all quintessentially Cavalli.
For the runway show, we saw slinky flapper style dresses with luxurious beadings, plunging necklines, fiery motifs, and exotic furs. It was pure Gatsby meets rock & roll meets boho chic. A stunning fall/winter 2014 collection.
For the menswear, I was reminded of one of favourite comedies – Zoolander. Don’t cha think? ;)
The store features the full range of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, accessories, bags and shoes, beginning with the Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection.
The modern interior concept remains sleek and clean-cut, allowing the collections to bring out the glamour of the brand.

After a quick gong cha fix, we made a dash to another event….
Sephora Beauty Night Out!
It was a beautiful madness with pumping music, Sephora staff dancing with wild abandon on stage. drinks galore, and women of all ages plying through the aisles buying cosmetics to last a year.
There was an awesome 20% off for invited guests after all!
Making a special guest appearance was Jonte Moaning, renowned for being dance choreographer to the likes of Beyonce and Janet Jackson. In his skin tight flamboyant getup, he was all glitter, air-kisses and total sexy diva-liciousness. It was so fun hanging out with him drinking champagne together!
Adam got some really cool shots of Jonte. Yea, work it sister!
Whenever I step into Sephora, my eyes glaze over and my well stocked dressing table at home suddenly ceases to exist. All I see are are endless aisles of pretty boxes. Gorgeous shades pinks, corals and reds screaming out to me. Gobsmacking palettes of enchanting shimmers and metallics. The promises of alluring eyes, rosy flushes, perfect skin.
Sephora is one big giant Venus trap. And wait till you get to the cashier section. No one escapes that death-maze-of-cute-and-cheap-beauty-steals leader up to the counters. And I mean, NO ONE. While we were haplessly, happily lost in the death-maze throwing mini cans of dry shampoo and tubes of lip gloss into our baskets with every step towards, my friend ended up getting TWO Clarisonic cleansers. I nearly did too. Which is quite befuddling upon looking back because Clarisonic was not even there.
Ah, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
My star buy of the night was the cult favourite, Urban Decay’s Naked eyeshadow palette.
It’s my first, and since Emily is one of the million fans who swear by it, I’m excited to give it a shot. But I don’t usually wear eyeshadow so… guess it may be time to experiment with new looks!
