WHITE IS ALWAYS RIGHT!
If you've been reading Cosmo, you'll know that white is one of Summer 2012's most stand-out hues, and Monsieur Dior agreed, believing “White is pure and simple and matches with everything.” Which is why we're loving Dior's new timepiece collection, which features 12 white ceramic and steel watches in 28, 33, and 38mm with quartz or automatic movements. The bezels feature white ceramic or diamonds. Our fave: this Dior VIII 33mm Quartz in white ceramic.

The fragrant elixir (laced with warm vanilla, amber and cloves) oves) contains a blend of oils including argan, camelia elia and linseed, and can be used in a number of ways: as a preshampoo treatment for dry hair, as a prep before a blowdry to add shine or a styling serum to smooth out flyaways. .
