Pump Up Your Adrenaline With The First-ever Star Wars Orchestra In Singapore Before The Premiere Of The Last Jedi On 15th December 2017!

| |
Hi Huneybees,

The worldwide screening of the much anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi , the second film of the sequel trilogy, is just weeks away and to pump up the excitement among millions of Star Was fans around the region, Disney Concert has brought the first-ever official Star Wars concert to Singapore and I am so happy to have the opportunity to catch part of the closed door dress rehearsal as well as an interview with orchestra conductor Nicholas Buc.

A passionate music and film enthusiast, Nicholas Buc is one of few conductors in the world that is specialized in bring music and film into Live concert setting as this requires very specific and unique style of conducting to synchronize the music with the picture.

Nicholas has a little video screen in front of him while he conducts so that he could have the visual reference points to make sure that the music hits the right moment with the picture, such as when Kylo Ren strikes with his crossguard lightsaber or a TIE Fighters chasing after the millennium falcon.

With 8 years of experience under his sleeve since started conducting his first film concert - Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock - Nicholas is a big Star Wars fan and picks Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) as his favorite character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens for her strong character and her teeth!

If he has it his way, you might be able to catch him doning a stormtrooper suit and conducting in his favourite green lightsaber in exchange for his conductor suit and baton at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens concert that runs from 29th to 31st October 2017 at Esplanade Theatre in Singapore.

Tickets for this first-ever official Star Wars concert is now on sales at this SISTIC link.

If you are a diehard Star Wars fan, this is definitely a concert not to be missed!
May the force be with you.

Colourful Makeup This Fall With M.A.C x Rossy de Palma Collection

| |
Hi Huneybees,

I've been running around like a busy little bumble bee, that I almost missed this new collection by M.A.C. Inspired by the uniqueness of Spanish actress/model - Rossy de Palma, comes this colorful collection that will definitely paint a rainbow for you this Autumn.

Rossy de Palma’s strikingly unique, Picasso-esque beauty and uninhibited, creative soul has made her one of Spanish art, fashion and cinema’s most original muses and collaborators. Now, her joie de vivre is captured in her M∙A∙C colour collection. Special packaging takes on new meaning with inspiration drawn from Rossy’s romantic glamour, and palettes featuring her eyes, nose and lips come together to form an invincible Cubist vision.

Due to Rossy's striking profile, she has always been known as a "Picasso painting come to life", being the muse of designer Jean Paul Gaultier and acclaimed film director Pedro Almodóvar. Her je ne sais quoi has been captured in this collection with a special holographic packaging that draws attention to her unique style and also a Cubist style reminiscent of her gorgeous features.

So, let's take a look at the collection.

For Lipsticks, there are supposedly 4 shades, but 1 special shade is only available online. What's in stores is Rossy (dirty mauve purple), Self Esteem (bright clean red) and Frenesi (bright red fuchsia).

Other than the individual lipsticks, there is also the Indimenticabile Lip Gloss Trio, where you can play with lip colours, mix and match them for different looks. 

Featuring Soft Dream (bright fuchsia pink), Plum Bite (a deep plum) and Velvet Me (cherry red). 

For cheeks, they have 2 daring Powder Blush shades - Pink Desire (dirty blue pink) and Red Envy (dirty red) that will give your cheeks that pop of colour whilst complimenting the eyeshadow shades in the collection.

To achieve those high cheeks and nose bridge, there is the Nose Pose Cream Colour Base Duo. Featuring Africa Dream (soft yellow nude) and Morocco (soft warm chocolate). It is a cream base, so I wasn't very keen on this palette though, but the shade works great for light to medium tan skin tones.

Here's the highlight - Colours on the Verge Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow. There are 5 shades in this palette and I'm loving every single one!

Pinky (bright pink), Money (soft green with pearl), Deep (dark blackened navy), Charcoal (black with multi-colored pearl) and Smoke (soft lilac).

The other eyeshadow palette is the My Moon Eyeshadow Duo, that features Luna Llena (frosty white) and Luna Noire (matte black). 

Luna Llena makes a good highlighting shade and I use Luna Noire for eyeliner too!

Lastly, we have the Glitters that are definitely party ready. Get them either in - Red (vibrant shimmering red) or Reflects Turquatic (sparkling bright blue that's so mermaid inspiring)!

So, which ones are you eyeing on? Be ready to channel your inner chic Spanish actress and indulge in this sophisticated, bold collection this Fall. 💋

Forever Crazy: Celebrating The Beauty Of The Female Form

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Forever Crazy started off with 12 gorgeous topless ladies marching out into the stage in high boots, Bearskin hats, and pound symbol suspenders, saluting and greeting their audiences in the Crazy Horse trademark opening show - "God Save Our Bare Skin".

Celebrating 65 years of Parisian glamour and inspired by the endless theme of feminity and sophistication, we are getting to see all the best acts from the legendary Cabaret. Forever Crazy, is a series of highly aesthetic and visual performances presented by a multicultural cast of 10 classically-trained dancers, dressed in textured lighting, projection, extravagant lingerie, body harness, and Christian Louboutins.

Forever Crazy was conceived in 1951 as a tribute to Alain Bernadin, the founder of Crazy Horse. It fully preserves the cabaret's artistic heritage while adding a touch of modernity, humour and sophistication. 

Bernardin's vision for Crazy Horse Paris was to show the different facets of femininity - funny, cheeky, loving, rebellious, sophisticated - and highlight those with great showmanship through music, lights, projections, and costumes.

Yes, there is nudity, 80 minutes of beautifully toned bare breasts and buttocks. But trust me, throughout the show, there is nothing porn-ish; you will only learn to appreciate the beauty of the female body, understand the female sexiness, through the artistic content of the show, the lighting and projection cleverly matched with the dance numbers make every act an art piece I would love to have at home.

A lot of the acts hinges on the lighting effects that are only made possible where all the dancers are of the same height and build (auditions require measurements from nipple to nipple and navel to pubis). The criteria are very strict and out of the annually over 500 applications, only 2 or 3 gets selected.

After the dancers are picked, they have to start mastering the specific Crazy Horse Paris dances, get their costumes fitted, haircuts and colours decided with her stage name once she is ready for the stage.
Through every dance act, you can see these girls go through a strict routine as every girl looks almost identical; and dancing in a 6m x 2m x 3m stage frame is definitely not an easy feat. My favourite act has got to be the "Upside Down", where the ladies dance using mirror reflection, every pause moment is such a beautiful work of art, every girl, so confident, so comfortable, so beautiful in their own skin. I don't even know which ones to filter out, so here's a short gif above.

Each dance act is not related, but for comic relief and also time for stage changes, we have Mr Fantastic to keep us company. He is an American popping-style dancer who became famous on "So You Think You Can Dance".

He's voguing style of dance has definitely got us wondering about the beauty of the human body form. Actually, it would be nice if there were additionally shows of male dancers too, just to balance out the gender game...

Over the past 65 years, Crazy Horse Paris has drawn over 15 million patrons among them celebrities including Elizabeth Taylor, President John F. Kennedy, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, Jean Paul Gaultier, Pedro Almodovar, Sting, Beyoncé and Rihanna.
Since its inception, Crazy Horse Paris has acquired an impeccable reputation for presenting women in an incomparable, sensual and sophisticated way. It will be a pity to not catch the show...

Forever Crazy is playing at Grand Theatre, Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands till 22nd October 2017. Tickets are available at Sistic and the venue's box office, be sure to give the VIP Table a try for the best view too!
