Bobbi Brown – First UK Standalone Store At White City


Growing up in a small village with a personal preference for the natural make-up look, I first had the opportunity to purchase Bobbi’s products during a visit to the Konigsallee in Dusseldorf, Germany.

After graduation from Emmerson College in Boston with a degree in theatrical make up, Bobbi launched her first line with 10 natural coloured lipsticks in 1991, at Bergdorf Goodman in New York. Estee Lauder bought the company in 1995 but Bobbi retains creative control of the brand. She has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and contributes how-to segments to The Today Show.

Her make up celebrates individuality and she believes in beauty from the inside out. Clean eating includes a regular coconut and kale smoothie, small portions of dark chocolate and coconut milk espresso.

Bobbi lives in New Jersey with Steven Plofker, her husband of 25 years and their three sons. She is an avid fan of Kanye, Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Jagger and Flo Rida. On days out of the lime light she wears worn – in jeans, Vans, motor cycle boots and sweaters but cleans up beautifully in sky high heels, bigger jewellery and sequins for events and photo shoots.

Bobbi is the author of six books on health, beauty and lifestyle. She says, ‘Knowing what you can do at any given time to look and feel better is pretty powerful’.

Bobbi's latest book 'Pretty Powerful' followed on from 'Makeup Manual'.

Bobbi explains,  ‘Women still need to understand what they put in their body is as important as what they put on their face’.

Earlier publications included 'Beauty Evolution' and the inspirational 'Living Beauty'.

Postcards From Paris


Paris holds a special place in my heart. The annual Lycée book haul can prove less than glamorous unless combined with a brief visit to some favourite shops and stops. Journey with me.

The It Sweater


The ordinary sweater has morphed into the trophy knit. This season’s most coveted sweater is Givenchy’s Bambi Knit.

This status buy has drummed up waiting lists normally reserved for It-bags; the sky high price tags ensuring they remain sartorial trophies.

With this season’s focus on day wear, team your sweater with a swishy skirt for work or dress it down with favourite jeans for the weekend.

Tamara is launching her new ready-to-wear collection at Harrods in November. It will include handbags and shoes. The collection which mirrors her own style, will also be available at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York and online at Net-A-Porter.

With this collection she aims to do “a monthly fashion drop”, solving the problem of having to buy clothes in the wrong season.

She says, “I don’t know any woman who wants to buy her winter coat in July” Hers will be available in September.
