Eva Longoria is currently in Auckland, New Zealand to launch Specsavers’ 2015 Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition.
As an ambassador for the brand, Longoria joins fellow judges comedian Jeremy Corbett and Lâ€™OrÃ©al Professionnel Stylist Peter Dutton to find the country’s most stylish specs’ wearer.
She follows in the footsteps of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Christina Hendricks, Colin Mathura-Jeffree, and Gok Wan.
As a wearer of glasses herself, Longoria says she is conscious of how she looks in her frames. ‘Wearing glasses is all about having fun and embracing your style. Whether Iâ€™m on set filming, studying or at a special event, accessorizing my look with glasses gives me confidence and allows me to make the ultimate style statement,’ she said in a release.
The winner receives an all-expenses-paid trip with a friend to Los Angeles to meet Longoria. Six finalists win a trip to Auckland for a night of entertainment with Corbett, and a professional photo shoot and style consultation. Entries are now open at loveglasses.specsavers.co.nz.

Actress Mila Kunis, who has promoted her association with Gemfields enthusiastically since becoming its brand ambassador, appears in the company’s new film, directed by Jeff Burton.
Gemfields, which celebrated a major ruby find in Mozambique last month, continues to promote the gemstones in its latest spot, with Kunis wearing designs by FabergÃ©, Georg Jensen, Spinelli Kilcollin, Miiori and Gyan of Jaipur.
The responsibly sourced Mozambican rubies from Cabo Delgado that feature reflect, refract and shimmer in close-ups and in shots where they come into focus, giving them a mysterious effect.
In a release, the actress said, ‘Working on this film with Gemfields and Jeff Burton was an amazing experience. I was given the opportunity to try and capture the allure and passion that rubies evoke in an unexpected way. I believe it will help to inspire a whole new generation to fall in love with this rarest of gemstones.’
Burton is a well respected photographer who has worked on campaigns for Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent and CÃ©line, among many others, and his work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Barbican Centre in London. It has been published in Vogue Paris, Vanity Fair, NumÃ©ro, and The New York Times.
Gemfields says its Montepuez ruby mune in Mozambique is believed to be one of the largest sources of responsibly sourced rubies in the world.

Former Lucire cover girl Nicky Hilton, wearing a $100,000 Valentino wedding gown with a long train and custom-made Christian Louboutin heels, married banking heir James Rothschild at the Kensington Palace Orangery on Friday. There was only the tiniest glitch of her train getting caught under the wheels of the Bentley that took her to the venue. Sister Paris served as bridesmaid, and guests included Kate Beckinsale and Petra Ecclestone. Insights came courtesy of siblings Paris and Barron via Instagram for those outside the milliard-dollar club.
Kylie Jenner, 17, is in the news again with her hair colour, this time a blue tint at a Bellami Beauty Bar event in Hollywood on Thursday launching her Kylie Hair Kouture extension line. It’s an icier pastel hue than the startling blue she had in 2014, and it’s similar to the colour she adopted in April very briefly, while her white jumpsuit revealed a plummeting neckline.
Our final video is a profile of 23-year-old actress Lorenza Izzo, who is married to Eli Roth. Hailing from Chile, Izzo began in the modelling world before moving into acting, and she will star in The Green Inferno later this year, which her husband directs.
With Lola Cristall’s Paris autumnâ€“winter 2015â€“16 haute couture report just round the corner, we note that Chanel, as always, attracted itself a massive celebrity crowd. Wearing the house’s offerings from springâ€“summer 2015 and other collections were Vanessa Paradis, Kristen Stewart, Alice Dellal, Julianne Moore, Lily-Rose Depp, Geraldine Chaplin, Isabelle Huppert, Rinko Kiukchi, Lily Collins, Jemima Kirke, Rita Ora, Tugba Sunguroglu, Violette d’Urso, Stella Tennant, Lara Stone and Jamie Bochert.
Spanish label Mirto has paid tribute to the colour blue with its springâ€“summer 2016 collection, representing everything from coolness, water and the sky to a summer’s night. As Spain becomes better known for its tasteful, elegant fashions and accessories, it’s refreshing to see Mirto being regally confident with its fine-cotton dress shirts, summer trousers and jackets, and lightweight cotton, wool and linen suits. The label offset its primary colour solely with white.
US model Kate Upton has given Osmosis PÃ¼r Medical Skincare a nod in an interview with Hello. ‘I also see a facialist at Advanced Skin Care Spa in New York City called Anna Antal. She introduced me to a skincare brand called Osmosis, which is amazing.’ Antal notes that she can create a custom rÃ©gime and offer select services to other clients in the city and beyond.
Above The waterproof Swymbags: take your belongings with you and don’t risk them getting stolen at the beach.
Scandale Paris, Academy Award winner Halle Berry’s lingerie line, has secured distribution in Canada, through Boutique la Vie en Rose’s 63 outlet locations and online at lavieenrose.com. La Vie en Rose is Canada’s largest lingerie retailer.
Originally founded in 1932, Scandale Paris was reintroduced by Berry, who serves as its creative director and curator, as well as having a co-ownership of the label with the Hong Kong-HQed Hop Lun Ltd. The basic and autumnâ€“winter 2015â€“16 collections are available in nearly 50 styles, priced from C$9Â·95 to C$25Â·95.
After Emily Gayton and Kristina Oliver had their belongings stolen when they left them on a beach, they decided to do something about it: invent a waterproof bag that you can put your belongings in, then take it swimming with you. Theyâ€™ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to get their Swymbag range, in three styles, into production.
Oilily, known best for its children’s line, will release its next womenswear collection at the Westergasfabriek during Amsterdam Fashion Week on July 13. ‘To show that Oilily moves with the times, we started the campaign Little Girls Grow up. The idea behind this campaign was to photograph women who grew up with our brand in the â€™80s and â€™90s wearing our new women’s collection,’ said Gijs de Kogel, Oilily’s marketing director. The campaign will break in time for the springâ€“summer 2016 season. The company aims to make “slow fashion”, staples that will still look good in half a decade’s time.

Suki Waterhouse is the new face of Redken, the company announced yesterday, joining the likes of Lea T. and Soo Joo Park.
At 23, Waterhouse is one of the most sought-after models today, as predicted in an earlier issue of Lucire. In recent years, she has represented Burberry, appeared in the film Love, Rosie with Lily Allen, and was one of the most-photographed celebrities at Glastonbury. She has covered British Vogue, Elle UK, Allure UK and other titles.
â€˜Suki is known for her chic style and effortless cool,’ said Shane Wolf, global general manager of Redken 5th Avenue in a release. ‘Sheâ€™s striking, multi-talented and dynamic. She brings a great energy to Redken.’
The first collaboration will be for Redken’s Diamond Glow Dry Oil this August, a product which reaches New Zealand shores in November. The company has released its first images, and more will appear on Redkenâ€™s and Waterhouse’s social media, including her Instagram at @sukiwaterhouse.
Miranda Kerr has also stepped up from modelling to designing, celebrating her first collaboration with Swarovski with a dinner at the company’s Kristallwelten in Wattens in the Austrian Alps.
The dinner held on Thursday night included guests Bryan Boy, Margaret Zhang and Giovanna Ewbank. The Kristallwelten, one of the big attractions in Wattens celebrating the history of the family-owned jewellery company, had recently reopened, and guests explored the chambers within. The Kristallwelten had first opened 20 years ago with Swarovski’s centenary.
Afterwards, they joined Kerr, Swarovski board and family member, Robert Buchbauer, creative director and executive vice-president Nathalie Colin, and senior vice-president Alessandro Vergano, for a five-course dinner in the new Daniel’s restaurant, named for the house’s founder.
Berlin DJ, Hara Katsiki, spun the tunes into the night after the dinner, while Kerr stayed on to mingle with guests.
Kerr took plenty of selfies for her Instagram, while guests were welcome to join her in many others after the official part of the event.
