The neutral eye shade of the moment is gorgeous gray, according Jane Larkworthy from W magazine
The color first appeared in fashion last fall, on everything from dresses and bags to fingernails. Now the stately shade is accenting eyes. “We’re seeing a lot of gray, which is interesting, because we’ve always thought of it as a fall-winter color,” says Chantecaille creative director Olivia Chantecaille, who recently made several once seasonal gray eye shadows part of the company’s permanent collection due to rising demand. “It’s replaced black in fashion and beige in makeup.” Even self-proclaimed “taupe girl” Bobbi Brown has embraced gray as part of her palette. “Before now, the only women who wore gray eye shadow were women with gray hair,” says Brown, whose new grays were inspired by stones. “When you look at stones, some are brown, some are gray. We all fell in love with the gray ones. There’s definitely a gray movement going on in beauty and fashion.” Variations on the shade are currently abundant, with gray eye shadows running from charcoal to sky. L’Oréal HiP Cream Shadow Paint in Steely is a dark pewter, Yves Saint Laurent Eye Colour Touch in Steel Blue is a medium slate, and Chanel Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Glacier is light and silvery. For those unwilling to go all the way, Chantecaille Lasting Eye Shade in Sel and Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Rock have the tiniest hints of brown, while Pür Minerals Pressed Mineral Shadow in Burgundy Malachite mixes in a bit of wine. And for the undecided, Guerlain Ombre Éclat 4 Shades Eyeshadow in Perle d’Argent is a quad that spans the spectrum from palest to deepest gray.
On Wisata kuliner's Capadocia Turkey episode, Gwen showed us that she have a good fashion taste.
1. First on the balloon she wore a gorgeous red belted trench, with shawl
2. At the carpet maker, shoe wore dark sweater, tucked in jeans with black flat knee-high boot which is very cool, with a big leather tote.
3. lunch wore grey anorak jacket and shawl
4. dinner jeans, blazer and shawl
It's relieved to see somebody wear something good on our tv. But in other jakarta's episode she wore things that a tourist would wear (you know..sleeveless tank with dark skin). And if I’m not mistaken she have a hairy spot under her jaw, which must be removed right away.

CITRUS Michael Kors and Diane von Furstenberg both worked a cool citrus palette on the runways, putting us in the mood for a frozen margarita and a fresh new scent. Inspired by the delicious mix of bright colors this season, perfumer Andrea Lupo of Takasago infused the new Marc Jacobs Splash scents with an unusual combination of grapefruit, orange flower, and ginger that scream spring.
CRISP & CLEAN White symbolizes purity, rebirth, and perhaps most importantly, the ushering in of gin and tonic season. Calvin Klein kept the look light and understated, letting the tailoring speak for itself.
Estee Lauder's new Pure White Linen fragrance uses notes of Darjeeling tea, Italian bergamot, and white grapefruit to evoke a perfect afternoon on the porch.
