I first met Fashion and Cultural Historian Laura McLaws Helms in true 21st century-style, colliding on twitter via  a mutual love of the same visual references.

Now, whenever she comes to London for research (she’s currently writing a book and curating an exhibition on cult British designer of the 60’s/70’s, Thea Porter), she stays at my house.

Who better to review this hot new Rouge Coco Shine shade by Chanel? Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in VIVA

“Since so much of my work as a fashion historian has me looking through old magazines at beauties of the past, it’s inevitable that I find my makeup inspiration in those pages. Now that it is sunny and my freckles are reappearing all I want to do is channel Margaux Hemingway in her ‘Babe’ heyday – dewy skin and luscious pink lips, courtesy of Chanel’s new ‘Viva’ lipstick”.
