My Style File… Australia’s Got Talent Finals Series 1
(Wednesday, June 4, 2012)

The look…

Tonight’s show is the first night of the Australia’s Got Talent ‘Finals’, so it’s time to amp up the fashion threads. Straight from the SS12/13 catwalk, I managed to nab this Lisa Ho silk tulle Bustier gown in Admiral Blue. This is a colour that everyone says makes my blue eyes ‘pop’.

I teamed it with my favourite Giuseppe Zanotti beige suede peep-toe sling-backs that are entirely covered with tone-on-tone Swarovski crystals. They were bought not by necessity, of course, but while waiting for Todd McKenney! During auditions filming for Australia’s Got Talent, Kyle was unable to make a few of the film dates, so at the last minute Todd sat in his judging seat. Todd got the call and kindly jumped on a flight from Sydney to Melbourne. The theatre where we were filming was next to the famous Miss Louise shoe shop on Collins Street. This is the most dangerous store for me, as they have the most delicious selection of my favourite designer shoes from around the world. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Let’s just say that I can still hear the ‘ker-ching’ after that credit card swipe!

For some understated glamour Ben sourced these smoky quartz Adrian Lewis drops with natural Tahitian black pearls, diamonds and 18kt white gold. The ring is an emerald cut smoky quartz white gold cocktail ring. I love the colour, as it is not  dramatically ‘blingy’. The colour sits back against the gown’s colour pop. Adrian is a Melbourne fine jewellery designer based in South Yarra.

Ben: “I know Dannii is mostly seen from the waist up on camera for this show, so are we insane for styling this from the shoe up? She was desperate to wear these shoes, and would I want to disappoint La Minogue??? No!!!!!! We are always up for going that extra fashion mile, even if it is not seen. It is about how it makes you feel.”

Hair and make-up…

Fo:I used Giorgio Armani Luminious Silk foundation with a drop of MAC Care Blends essential oil for a beautiful luminous glow. Next I contoured around the temples with Trucco Brozer Afterglow to add warmth to Dannii’s skin tone.

For the cheeks this week we went for a dewy look with MAC Lilicent creme blush. For a nice highlight area I put a touch of Vani-t Luminiser serum on the cheekbones and top lip in the bow.  On Dannii’s eyes I used Tom Ford’s eye colour quad 02 Cognac Sable shade as a wash over the lids. For the eye sockets, I used a rich chocolate brown shade from my Stila colour wheel palette and finished the look with Bourjois #73 deep green eyeliner. 

For a beautiful gold sparkle to pick up the colour of the heels, I used LeClerc mascara on Dannii’s eyebrows. For the extra ‘wow’ factor we always use ModelCo Fibre Lash for the lashes. This week we gave her lips a nice gloss using Burberry lip gloss No.02.

For transforming winter skin into a golden body glow I used Naked Tan goddess shimmer. Finally we spiced up Dannii’s nails with Zoya nail varnish in Kalista.”

Makeup Tip: 
Use highlighter very sparingly!!  On the bridge/centre of your nose, on the brow bone under your eyebrow, the top of your cheekbones and in the bow of the lips are the key areas to focus on. A little bit of highlighter to these areas brightens the appearance of the skin and gives a ‘pro’ finish to your makeup. Don’t get highlighter-happy and apply it all over your face otherwise you’ll end up looking like a metallic disco ball! As Fo says:  “We want to go to the disco, not look like one doll!”  

Until next week, Ciao my cherry pies! 

Dannii xx
