Work it Like an Egyptian…

Egyptian inspired looks are rising up from the afterlife in the form of statement Heavy gold neckplates and cuffs, Bling embellished shoes, Blacker than Black hybrids of Sixties and Cleopatra hair and winged eyeliner, gold leaf make up and heavy dark eyebrows,  Gold on neutrals and Gold on Neons, Heiroglyphs and heavily embellished, bejewelled and adorned garments.  Elizabeth Taylor did it best in her role as Cleopatra in the 1963 film, all beaded hair, smokin body, bling and immaculate kohl but some of these runway and editorial looks are so fine they shine:

Smokey eyed and Blingy.  Warning don’t try this hair at home you may look like you just returned from a beach holiday in Bali
