Today we’re loving this patterned peplum from Forever New (R1999). Not only are we crazy about peplums this season, but we’re also wild about pastels, which is why we simply adore this printed dress. Chic enough to wear with a pair of heels on a night out, but cool enough to team with a pair of pumps too, this feminie frock is a must-have item this season!

We all love a designer bag and doubly so when it’s a gift, so how about a bonus statement clutch from leading SA designer Gavin Rajah? The offer (while stocks last, which is why we’re letting you know about it now) is that the bag is free when you buy R900 or more of Clinique treatment products. And that’s not all! Buy two or more treatment products from Clinique and you’ll also get a free eight-piece Clinique gift set, including mascara, lipstick, creams and blush (also while stocks last). Find yours at Clinique makeup counters at Edgars and Red Square stores.

And to celebrate this hot fashion and beauty collaboration, we caught up with Clinique’s communication and PR manager, Natasha Bennett, to find out more:

GLAMOUR: Bringing Gavin’s designer touch to your international brand brings fashion and beauty together. Why is this so important to Clinique?

NATASHA: Fashion and beauty are very closely linked – the one is incomplete without the other. For a finished look, it’s important that your beauty and fashion are complementary, and that’s exactly what we’ve done here with this collaboration. The Gavin Rajah clutch bag works with the Clinique treatment products for an experience that is both stylish and pretty.

GLAMOUR: What inspired Clinique to collaborate with Gavin Rajah?

NATASHA: Both brands have a similar ethos and brand synergy: Clinique and Gavin Rajah both embody a clean aesthetic, elegance and femininity.

GLAMOUR: How are Clinique translating catwalk beauty trends with their products?

NATASHA: Clinique’s Global Colour Artist, Jenna Menard, has found an amazing translation with various designers in New York that were showcased at New York Fashion Week. In particular, the colours you find in Clinique products are directly influenced by what’s showing on catwalks.

GLAMOUR: What are your Clinique must-haves to look beautiful through winter?

NATASHA: The Clinique 3-Step Skincare System (R525) is formulated to help you clean, purify and glow and is a must-have for your daily skincare routine. Clinique also offers custom-fit moisturisers to suit every skin type. To find out what yours is, go to your nearest Clinique counter to get your for your free consultation. And for a pop of colour (so hot right now!), don’t forget Clinique’s Chubby Stick Moisturising Balm Lip Colour (R205), to keep your lips plump and moisturised, with a burst of bright colour.

Brighten up a dreary winter day with bright lips that pop! We’re loving the Catrice Ultimate Colour lipsticks (R54.95 each) which make your lips the centre of attention. The smooth, creamy texture of each lipstick is long-lasting and the formula is packed with rich pigments which means you get a gorgeous finish with great coverage.

Today we’re loving these leopard print and blue pumps from Lilikoi (R2550). Pricey, we know, but sometimes there’s nothing better than a beautifully made pair of pumps that fit your feet perfectly! Team them with a pair of cropped pants and a tailored blazer for a seriously chic off-duty look.

Channel your inner vintage chick with Crabtree’s latest fragrance offering, Wisteria (100 ml R650). We don’t only heart the vintage scent but the packaging too!


In addition to the quintessential English Wisteria, the scent is a delicate, soft floral combination of gardenia, ylang ylang blossoms, mandarin, nashi pear and slight hint of musk.


Although Wisteria is usually reserved for your granny’s dressing table, this take on it is delightfully modern and sophisticated. We promise that you’ll wear it all the way through to summer!

Today we’re loving Vaseline’s new Total Moisture 24hr Nourishing Lotion (R19.99 for 200ml and R31.99 400ml, and the richer Cream R27.99 for a 350ml tub and R36.99 for a 500ml tub).

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this cold weather is making my legs look almost reptilian! Thankfully help is at hand with this new body cream from Vaseline.

It contains pure oat extract to nourish and protect the skin while evening–out skin tone. Oats have a very high protein content, which means they can help renew skin cells from within. Oat extract also has the ability to know which areas of your skin are drier, and can send more moisture to where it’s needed.

Applied daily, this cream will eradicate any signs of dry skin (or in my case, scales), in a matter of days. Both variants contain the brilliant oat extract, but for very dry areas, but I would recommend using the cream instead of the lotion.

I think I might just get into a bath full of it, and wait for summer!

Today we’re loving Yardley Stayfast Diamond Gloss Nail Polish in Plum Seduction, (R54.95)! The polish has recently been fitted with a great new brush, which is fan-shaped and rounded at the end, so you can cover almost an entire nail with just one stroke.

There are 15 gorgeous shades in this collection, but our favourite shade for winter is Plum Seduction – a bright, regal purple with hints of blue glitter, which gives it a jewel-like glint.
