The New Iron Man. . .Girl

There's a new Iron Man in town and she goes by the name Riri Williams. It's been a couple of weeks since Marvel Comics announced the latest character to their universe illustrated by Brian Michael Bendis. She's an adddition rather than a replacement. Meaning, she and her predecessor, Tony Stark, will (peacefully?) coexist. I think this is the case (or homeboy's about to be made obsolete).  Intriguing. And upon viewing the natural hair, loop earrings and cropped top, I wondered about homegirl's prototype. I see a conglomerate of people, fictional and real. Namely, Coffy, Lupita Nyong'o, Gigi Hadid, and of course the namesake, Rihanna. Who is it, or was it? Email headquarters.

Ellinor, Riri is not a fashion based character. She will be in the Iron Man armor. . .

Mr Marvel, with all due respect, I beg to differ. All. superheroes. are. fashion. based. What have we here? "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." Bam! Purple pants! 

Why so serious, when there's clearly an architect to this colour scheme? Purple and green, the Joker hit it first. Denoting suit, vest, tie and grin. It's distorted, but dapper, right? OK, so it's mostly distorted. My point is more that the mania of clothing serves a purpose. The crusader's costume is carefully crafted to distingusih their identity, and morever, traits of vice or virtue. I can bring forth more examples like the Style, I mean Suicide Squad. Oooooh, and Batman. Take away the accessories; the car, the cave and the cape. What is left, but a mere man and his butler. And to add to the word, he's got a massive chip on his shoulder. There, I said. . .

Wait, what's that knock on my door?

Makeup, Please

Amidst learning that the best selfie is taken by pointing the camera lense to the tip of one's nose, I also learned that the mend for oily skin is using an oil based cleanser. Yep. Claudemyr Barata, beauty artist, at Kryolan (their freshly minted store located in  Copenhagen's old Latin Quarter), has it down to a science (he is from Brazil, lest I forget to mention it). But, to make a long story short; more oil produces less oil. The inverse is true. 

That said, I also got a new Lip Stain. It's red.

Why Matching Your Lipstick With Everything Is Errythang

The nails, too.

Decadent, you say. Art Deco, we say. And Pebbles is one of the few female artists with the tightest game of the 90's. It still works, girlfriend.
