First look: Ralph Lauren Spring ’10

Post image for First look: Ralph Lauren Spring ’10

I make no secret of the fact that I’d be perfectly happy abandoning city life for a place in the countryside, where I could grow my own flowers and veggies, bake pies with fruit from my orchard, and have a dozen or so animals roaming wild around the property. (Of course, this country abode would need to be less than 3o minutes from a Whole Foods, a shopping mall and some decent restaurants and nightlife—which is why that vision remains a fantasy, at least for the near future.)

Until then, I’ll have to satisfy myself with the cool country vibe Ralph Lauren had going for his spring show. LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I wrote the other day that I’d be happy to wear Anna Sui’s Total Look day in, day out for an entire season… well, it looks like she’s got competition now.

Here’s the full body shot:

And here’s the head shot:

Doesn’t it make you want to run off to a farm too? (At least, if we could look this good mucking about in the mud and hay etc.?)

I know I’m becoming a Blush Nazi, but it’s essential to pull this off. One you might like—since this looks a bit more tawny than pinky—is Dr. Hauschka’s Rouge Powder. It has zero glitter (unlike my nighttime favourite, NARS Orgasm), so it’s actually more of a natural look for day. And it’s totally pure, so it will NEVER clog your pores.

And to get the rosy look on the lips, a lip stain would be ideal. Go for one that’s not too dark—I hear CoverGirl’s Outlast Lipstains are excellent, and the one I’d try would be Flirty Nude.

The hair looks easy, not too fussy—just a nice, smooth blowout. Don’t forget the jaunty cap, of course!

I LOVE this look. And Lily’s perfect face kills me. Every time.

I’m more of a Stam girl myself. There was a time, when I was at ELLE, when I wanted to run her in EVERY trend story. It’s those eyes. Lucky bitch! :-)
