Miss American Pie

This season, one of my favourite collections is Michael Kors‘ patriotic nod to all things Americana. The crisp, chic and oh-so red, white & blue collection features polka-dot bikinis, big nautical stripes and ’50s-style full skirts and gingham dresses. Mod Cloth.com currently has a wide selection of retro one- and two-pieces that you’ll want to wear both in and out of the water.

The make-up on the runway was also sweet as pie. The models wore rich red lips — a welcome change during the summer days of numerous soft pink lip glosses — and sun-kissed cheeks. I would suggest Rimmel‘s Sunshimmer Maxi Bronzer for a healthy looking sun-kissed glow. The gold shimmer in the powder leaves a touch of sparkle. Rimmel’s Moisture Renew Lipstick in “Diva Red” looks just like the cherry shade on Michael Kors’ runway. It’s a great lipstick for warm temps as it conditions and has a shiny, not matte, finish. Happy picnicking!
