NEWNESS July – The Scoop On The Latest…

Today’s scoop is about sharing all the newness happening out there, so that you gals can stay in the loop with new muses, new faces, some delicious chocolate, some really cool fragrances and pearly white smiles.

Starting with…

Willow Smith For Chanel Eyewear

My how Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith’s little girl has grown! Grown into a fully fledged Chanel Girl! And now Willow Smith is the new face of CHANEL’s Fall/ Winter 2016/17 Eyewear campaign chosen by Karl Lagerfeld himself!


Willow Smith is a multifaceted artist, writer-composer-singer and actress, and the embodiment of her generation’s spirit. Her youth and energy charmed Karl Lagerfeld who has invited her to join the family of CHANEL muses.

With characteristic natural poise, the young trendsetter was instantly at ease in front of the designer’s camera. Willow Smith’s look and charisma are compelling in this black and white campaign with its minimal backdrop. Swathed in jewels from the Fall-Winter 2016/17 Ready-to-Wear collection, she breathes new energy into the world of CHANEL eyewear.

This campaign features optical designs and sunglasses that will be available in CHANEL boutiques and CHANEL authorised retailers from June 2016.

As a liberated young woman with positive energy and who cultivates happiness, Taylor embodies the Lancôme philosophy and will therefore perfectly convey this state-of-mind towards the millennials.

Her charm and freshness have won over the most prestigious fashion magazines and she’s walked the runway for some of the most famous designers. Taylor Hill also recently made her debut in cinema in The Neon Demon by Nicolas Winding Refn.

Onto Something Sweet…

Cadbury have recently launched a brand new chocolate bar that will give you total sensory overload. 5 Star is the brands biggest chocolate bar launch in over a decade and features a totally mouth watering flavour! Inside chewy, golden caramel is wrapped in a soft chocolate cream centre with crunchy biscuits. I mean, does it get better than this?

Unfortunately I chomped my press pack (literally), before I had a chance to shoot it, which just goes to show how delicious 5 Star is! I polished off four bars in 24 hours and I’m proud of it!


I’ve already seen Cadbury 5 Star in a couple of shops, but you can expect to see loads of jam-packed, interactive campaigns surrounding this chocolate bar as it makes its way into the market. You can keep up with everything 5 Star on their facebook page or check out the hashtag #Gimme5Star on social media.

and decadent…

Lovers of Lindt Chocolate who frequent The Mall of Africa will be happy to know that this month, the decadently delicious Swiss chocolate brand will be opening their latest LINDT Chocolate Boutique at Mall of Africa.


I unfortunately don’t have dates of the opening yet, but I’ve been invited to experience an evening of pure indulgence at the new LINDT Boutique on National Swiss Day! Be sure to keep up with my on Twitter (@stylescoop) so you can get the inside scoop!
