The Royal New Zealand Ballet will perform A Christmas Carol for its final season in 2014, in a version created for Northern Ballet in the UK. Northern Ballet’s master, Daniel de Andrade, is in New Zealand to stage the production.
   Based on the Charles Dickens story, the ballet is expected to surprise, with large sets, 650 costume elements, 75 characters and music by television composer Carl Davis that incorporates well known Christmas carols.
   De Andrade said in a release, ‘This evocative production has been a hit in the UK for over 20 years and such was its success that the BBC televised the production. The stunning sets and costumes transport audiences to Victorian England where Dickens’ classic characters are beautifully brought to life by talented dancers who not only dance but sing and act. It’s a narrative masterpiece and you couldn’t find a truer Christmas ballet.’
   Christopher Gable directs, with choreography by Massimo Moricone, production design by Lez Brotherston, and original lighting by Paul Pyant. Nigel Gaynor conducts.
   The ballet opens at the St James Theatre in Wellington on October 30 and tours the country, finishing in Takapuna on December 14. Notably, the company will perform at the newly restored Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch for the first time, on November 20.
   The dates are: Wellington, October 30 and 31, and November 1, 2, 6–8; Dunedin, November 15 and 16; Christchurch, November 20–2; Palmerston North, November 26; Napier, November 29 and 30; Auckland, December 3–7; and Takapuna, December 13 and 14. Full details can be found on the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s website.

Hawkes Bay designer Kate MacKenzie is the winner of the 2014 Brancott Estate Supreme WOW award, at the 26th World of Wearable Art Awards’ Show held in Wellington tonight.
   MacKenzie’s Poly Nation is an inventive design, telling the story of travel and made from leather and cardboard suitcases. The inspiration centred on the idea of ‘If suitcases could talk, they would carry stories of travel, culture and integration.’ It tells the story of people drawn to New Zealand with new ideas and beliefs.
   The design has netted MacKenzie NZ$30,000 in prizes.
   She also took out the Air New Zealand South Pacific section.
   MacKenzie had come third, along with Deidre Morgan, last year in the American Express Open section.
   Lynne Christiansen of San Francisco, Calif. took second place. She has entered seven times, and has won awards before, including the 2013 International Americas Award. Christiansen’s Gothic Habit was made from laser-etched felt and wood, constructed from 2,300 individually cut pieces to form a gothic cathedral. Christiansen also won the Open Section.
   In the individual categories, My Gradational Body by Zhujun Zhu of China won the Avant-Garde section; Fenced off by Luiz Fernando Sereno Penna of New Zealand won the children’s section.
   The Spark Creative Excellence section, with the Airborne theme this year, was won by Annkathrin Selthofer of Germany with her Waving Gorge design. Sebastian Denize of New Zealand won the Bizarre Bra section with Re-Decked, while Mark Dobson, also of New Zaland, won the Weta Costume and Film section (judged by Weta’s Sir Richard Taylor) with Sakana No Senshi.
   Emily Valentine Bullock of New Zealand took home the WOW Factor Award with her Sulphur Crested Frockatoo; the Shell Sustainability Award was won by Laura van Staveren of the Netherlands with Appearance. Shell also sponsored the Student Innovation Award, which was won by Tess Tavener Hanks of Australia with Baroque Living Room.
   The first-time entrant award was scooped by Ali Khan and Frida Khan of Qatar with Bling Warrior. Pop Cultural by Nicki van Asch of New Zealand won the New Zealand Design Award.
   The four Wellington International Awards, one being awarded to each geographic region, were won by Back to the Future: Chrome Queen, by Joanna Peacock of the UK, for Europe; Girl in Ribbons, by Julian Hartzog of the USA for the Americas; Odette by Lulan Huang of China for Asia; and Fenghuang (phoenix) by Svenja XX of Australia for Australia and the South Pacific.
   Wellington designers (Ross Hardie, Rachel Hardie, Hannah Goldblatt, Dylan Mulder, Kris Eriksen, Ian Loveridge, Liz Ritchie, Paula Rowan, Rénée Louie and Emily Valentine Bullock) netted the lion’s share of prizes this year, taking three section awards, four honourable mentions and one special award.
   Founder Dame Suzie Moncrieff, designer Vicky Taylor, and sculptor Jeff Thomson judged.
   Lucire fashion editor Sopheak Seng will have further thoughts from the designers as he files his report from awards’ night at WOW.

In front of a live global audience, and a full house at Sky City Theatre in Auckland, Rachel Millns of the Kapiti Coast was crowned Miss Universe New Zealand 2014 on Thursday night.
   Millns beat out Monique Cooley of Queenstown and Becky Hingston, originally of Dunedin, after a combined judges’ vote (with the panel consisting of Colin Mathura-Jeffree, Megan Alatini, Jo Holley, Stephanie Charles of Starnow, Emma McLachlan of Diamond Entertainment, and special guest judge Chalita Yaemwannang, Miss Universe Thailand 2013), and a public vote (through Miss Universe New Zealand’s online I-vote and SMS voting).
   Alatini did double duty as she and Joe Cotton, Erika Takacs and Keri Harper reformed TrueBliss—the original Popstars band—for one night, performing both one of their earlier hits and a new song.
   Russell Dixon, back from performing lead roles on the British stage, Michelle Varte, and Lavina Williams also entertained the crowd at the Theatre.
   Miss Universe New Zealand executive director Nigel Godfrey announced the Miss New Zealand Consortium Ltd.’s intention to hold a Mrs New Zealand competition in 2015, and registrations of interest are being taken on the nextmissnz.com website.
   He and Lucy Gallaugher MCed the event, which was streamed at nextmissnz.com, livestream.com, virtualticket.co.nz and right here at Lucire. The grand final will air on Face TV in New Zealand as a delayed telecast.
   Both Yaemwannang and Holly Michelle Cassidy, Miss Universe New Zealand 2013, crowned Millns on stage at the conclusion of the show.
   Other awards were given to Alyx Pivac (Miss Congeniality), Monique Cooley (Miss Photogenic) and Brenna Watson-Paul (World Miss University representative for 2014, as judged by Alex Lee).
   Golden Gowns, Antique & Modern Jewellery, Jewels by Aqua, Jucy, and the Tourism Authority of Thailand were platinum sponsors for the evening.
   Millns will head off to Doral, Florida, in December, to participate in Miss Universe 2015 on January 18.

Napoleon Perdis is the exclusive make-up provider to the grand final of Miss Universe New Zealand 2014, which will be held at Sky City Theatre on September 18. The show will also be live-streamed at nextmissnz.com as well as Lucire.
   The company has provided prize packs for the finalists (including lip gloss, a complimentary makeover, samples of BBB cream, primer and serum) as well as VIPs, plus grander prizes for the top five place-getters, whom the public and the judges decide on, fifty–fifty. They’ll also be behind the scenes: on Thursday night, viewers will see a make-up look created by Napoleon Perdis’s head office in Sydney.
   The products Napoleon Perdis’s team, along with the Samala Robinson Academy, will use include Auto Pilot pre-foundation skin primer, Peep Show in Madame Beyond mascara, Stroke of Genius Liquid Cashmere foundation, the One concealer and the Camera Finish powder foundation for prep and base; the Camera Finish powder foundation, Matte Bronze fine powder for that beautiful sun-kissed look, Mosaic Flushing powder, Color Disc in Blushing Bride and Pale Rider or Chocoholic eye brow pencil for contour, blush and brows; and the Chocolate Genache Color Disc, Golden Peach loose eye dust, Mosaic Flushing powder, Color Disc in Skinny Dip, China Doll eyeliner, the One concealer in light, Mesmer-Eyes mascara, faux lashes in Zinnia, Mattastic lipstick in Audrey, Witty in Pink lip pencil and Clearly Glam lip lacquer for eyes and lips. All are aimed to give the finalists a glamorous, film-star look—exactly in line with Napoleon Perdis’s own vision of democratizing make-up. The best looks shouldn’t just be available to celebrities, they should be available to women from all around New Zealand.
   Tickets are available from Iticket, and, due to demand, Miss Universe New Zealand has opened up the dress rehearsal on Wednesday, with proceeds going to the Father Ray Foundation, which the finalists visited on their Thai retreat in August.

Living Nature’s Skin Steps: all you need in a natural, single package to look after your skin

Lucire staff/2.18

We have to take our hats off to Living Nature for constantly innovating—and staying true to what it stands for, as the world’s purest and most natural skin care brand. (Remember, it’s not what they put in, it’s what they leave out, that makes Living Nature the brand that’s certified natural by BDIH and the safest skin care range by the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database.)
   We’ve had a chance over the last few weeks to try out its newest release, the Skin Steps pack featuring five Living Nature products: the nourishing day cream, vitalizing cleaner (both with active manuka honey) and extra-hydrating toning gel (with harakeke), each in 50 ml bottles, plus a sampling of the nourishing night cream (again with manuka honey) and firming flax serum (with harakeke). It’s one of three packs that Living Nature offers depending on your skin condition—we had the normal skin one, but the company also offers one for oily skin and another for dry and mature skin.
   The pack is a particularly handy size, and each of the 50 ml bottles makes the beauty rĂŠgime all the simpler. There’s no colouring, no artificial fragrances—if there’s a scent associated with natural goodness, you’ll find it here. The cleanser actually leaves your skin feeling softer and smoother thanks to a moisturizing effect and its mild kumerahou, while the nourishing cream has a pleasant, gentle scent that we noticed had a positive effect on the skin throughout the day. The toning gel, with harakeke flax gel and Totarol feels lighter than the creams, and helps restore your skin’s natural pH balance while repairing dehydration, ideal for the warmer months ahead, and very gentle on the face.
   Living Nature has made looking after your skin such a simple process, and it’s well worth the NZ$69 retail price. For more information, head to www.livingnature.com or freephone, in New Zealand, 0508 548-464. It’s available at selected salons, pharmacies and health stores nationally.

Phoenix commemorates its Love Project with three limited-edition pop-art bottles

Lucire staff/3.14

Pin It



We fell in love with these limited-edition pop art bottles from Phoenix Organics ever since they arrived at the office—so much so that we’ve been saving them for a special occasion.
   But they’re much more than a fleeting fancy. They signify Phoenix’s commitment to the environment, launching its Love Project, where it has teamed up with Sustainable Coastlines and Tangaroa Blue Foundation to help clean up New Zealand’s beaches.
   Over 1,015,884 litres of rubbish has been collected from New Zealand beaches since 2009—equivalent to 31 shipping containers of waste. Phoenix is asking Kiwis to visit its Facebook page to vote for the beach they love the most and would like to keep clean. The company will contribute to beach clean-up projects this summer.
   The artwork has been inspired by the love of our planet, and appears on Phoenix organic cola, lemonade and ginger
beer. The artists are Mica Still of Wellington, Meghan Geliza of Auckland, and Mulga of Sydney.
   In late October, Geliza and Still will create a live art installation in Auckland, in which the public can participate.

Meadowlark shows its ‘anarchist queen’ Dynasty jewellery collection

Lucire staff/20.56

Pin It



Meadowlark’s Dynasty collection builds on its previous two, Ritual and Veni Vedi Vici, taking the inspiration from an ancient Russian monarch, traditional Indian bridal adornment and grunge–luxe supermodel nostalgia, says the company.
   The company had already made headlines for its distinctive, high-impact jewellery with Rihanna modelling its pieces in the September 2014 issue of W.
   There’s more than a nod to the body-piercing ĂŚsthetic: among the items are headpieces, nose chains, septum and lip rings, stud and hoop earrings, rings and necklaces, all taking strong forms such as spears, thorns and discs, and encrusted with diamonds, emeralds and rubies.
   The earrings are sold individually, allowing for maximum customization.
   â€˜We took the idea of ’90s piercing jewellery and put a luxe, grown-up twist on it using silver, gold and diamonds.’ says designer and co-founder Claire Hammon. She says the collection is ‘for the brave,’ suiting what the company calls a ‘modern anarchist queen’ who wishes to defy the status quo.
