Hello Kitty is available now.
I went to shop at MACCosmetics.com this morning and everything was sold out - but there must have been a glitch or something. Of course, this was just my luck because I hauled myself to Nordie's to get what I could in store and come back to find it all available back over online at MAC well as Nordstrom.
Anyway, I spent over $600 and it is so worth it. As soon as I have a chance to get some pictures, I will get some up for you. The lipstick are the best, thought I don't know how I can possible use them as they have the Hello Kitty engraved right into the lipstick itself. For me not only is the collection super fun to wear. but I have been a Hello Kitty fan for years. I have boxes of Hello Kitty items from my teen years and these will be a huge part of my collection. really - it can't get much better than Hello Kitty and makeup, right?
Hello Kitty was such a huge launch for MAC that some celebs even came out for the opening last week. Take a look at the gorgeous Lindsay Price and Ciara - with her very own Hello Kitty doll!
As part of the launch party MAC tapped into its fashion reservoir of friends and assembled a team of 30 internationally renowned designers, to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are inspired by the Hello Kitty collection. They asked designers to work within the colour palette of the Hello Kitty collection of black, grey, white and pink and posed the question, “What would MAC Hello Kitty wear if she were a fashionista?” And make no mistake, she is a girly, girl!
Designers were given creative freedom to create pieces in their own aesthetic and unveiled the exclusive designs to the world at the Hello Kitty cocktail party where they showcased their ensembles.
The designer team includes the very talented; Blugirl, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Dress33, Elie Saab, Emanuel Ungaro, General Idea – Bum Suk Choi, Giles, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Kai Kühne, Kate Sylvester, Katy England, Manish Arora, Marchesa, Miro, Opening Ceremony, Qiu Hao, Rosa Cha, Ruffian, Sang Beg Ha, Shu-Chi Huang, Sinha Stanic, Tadashi Shoji, The Blonds, threeasFOUR, Vicente Villarin, Yigal Azrouel, Zac Posen, Zimmermann. The designs included both avant-garde and more traditional creations from smart cocktail frocks to Kitty couture swimwear.
Now is your chance to get in on the action and bid to win one of the designs, as the Hello Kitty designs will be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds benefiting The Museum at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York. Specifically the proceeds will go to the Acquisition Fund, which allows the museum to acquire garments for their permanent collection from up and coming design talent who cannot afford to donate.
