Last Thursday (4.9.14) was Sydney's Vogue Fashion Night Out. Firstly, I have to tell you how frustrated I was not to be in Paris. This year, Chanel Beauty sent me an invitation to participate to the exclusive Paris' VFNO, only open for a few people as the store will not let you in if you don't have the invitation. Besides the exclusivity, Parisian nights are always amazing. I've attended it only once and it was nothing to be compared about: free food, champagne, polaroids at LV, etc.
Sydney night one the other hand, was opened to everyone. Less formal, with genuine events. No food or champagne but some nice treats at several stores.
My highlight of the night was probably at the Dior counter where I had the chance to be pampered with a gorgeous manicure. Massai, a deep burgundy, is one of the new colour for this autumn (Europe wise) collection. Reflects was released for the night only! It's a VFNO special and the receipt said "Vogue Fashion Night Out Color". It's basically a gold top coat, rather than a lacquer. It's beautify amongst ANY colour. To be applied on one or all the nails if you really like shimmers. Chanel also released a nail polish for the night, called Sweet Star. Although I'm a big fan of Chanel, the colour didn't really catch me.
Waiting for the fashion show at David Jones. We mostly saw models wearing the Vogue tshirt (retailed at $90). I don't want to be rude or anything but in Paris you can buy the tshirt for 25€ or have it with the magazine for and extra 10€ so I was really shocked of the price for a simple cotton shirt... Besides, I wasn't thrilled so much about the show but it was great fun! The best part of the night was the photo booths and pop up stores such as H&M and Essie.
I really wish I could be home and talk to you about the Paris' night coming on the 16th but unfortunately you'll have to wait (and so do I) until next year...!
