This season, I’m shelving the traditional go-to gold and silver jewelry pieces in favour of my obsession du jour: Rose Gold! This universally-flattering hue has been spotted on trendsetters like Rachel Zoe and Kate Moss, and is the perfect way to up your spring style ante.
Check out ELLE Canada’s jewels page in March for our top rose gold picks (including some major news from Tiffany & Company). If you could get one bauble in rose gold, what would it be?

Do you hate bra shopping? Especially before Valentine’s Day? I love shopping, but when it comes to finding that perfect bra, I dread it. The endless options of lace or no lace, lots of padding or none at all, do I want a water-filled or double pushup – it just seems so confusing. Now with Valentine’s Day quickly approaching most of us will be hitting up the nearest lingerie store to find the most flattering unmentionables. To make this experience a little easier we’ve caught up with Victoria’s Secret expert Renee Olsson for her tips and tricks to revving up your lingerie wardrobe. We chat about finding the best bra to suit your personality, fool proof ways to getting that great fit and the number one faux pas every women should know about.
For the casual/everyday woman
“If you are more modest, I would recommend Body by Victoria. This design comes in a non-pushup style, is incredibly comfortable and you have the option of full and demi-coverage. Try it in lace and you can match it to one of two panty styles we have available.”
For the contemporary woman
“The Incredible bra is ideal for the modern woman who loves the shine, print and colour of an undergarment. She can go for a comfortable and lightly padded bra or a pushup for some more oomph.”

Every time Marina Nery appeared on one of Rio’s fall/winter runways, the front row fashion scribes all nodded their approval. “There’s the girl with the ears and the amazing eyes. I love her!” was the common shout out. I caught up with Marina backstage at Filhas de Gaia to get the rundown on this rising runway phenom.
Born: Salvador, a town in the north east of Brazil
Runway history: “I did three shows in Paris two seasons ago, but this is my first season in Brazil and I’m so happy to be here. I didn’t expect this much! I’m a brunette girl and they tend to use the blondes and the black girls, so I’m a little proud of myself. It’s been an amazing first season and I’m so happy.”
Post model gig: “I want to go back to school to study anthropology.”
Defining features (eyes and ears): “I don’t know whether it’s just my ears, but my bookers are telling me a lot of people are talking about me. I don’t know what about. I hope it’s good things!”
