Vivienne Westwood Red Label S/S 09 at London Fashion Week

Vivienne Westwood's Red Label show at London Fashion Week was a huge event and it took place at Earls Court's Brompton Hall. It must have had a capacity for over a thousand people, so of course it was a star studded crowd with Pamela Anderson, Kate Moss, Erin O'Conner, Dita Von Teese, Emma Watson and Jamie Winstone just to name a few! The collection was everything you'd expect from fringing, sequins, bright colours, PVC and the most stunning hats by Prudence Millinery. The hat's were my...

Britney Spears

[youtube PYxKncCCyZQ&eurl] Britney Spears & Russell Brand - MTV VMA 2008 ads have been playing on TV and of course I love them! I like Britney Spears. I know sometimes her fashion choices are too much; they can be over the top or trailer trashy - but I like it. She takes a risk and goes for it. Too many celebrities, singers and girls bands, play it so safe that they have no personality and nothing that makes them special or unique. Of course Britney has been in the media since she was...

Amelia’s Magazine Quote of the Day

Amelia's Magazine is a very cool independent magazine. It's takes a lot of work for a magazine to do things on their own terms! That's why I asked Amelia's magazine - fashion industry insiders for quotes to use during my Viktor & Rolf fashion talk at the Barbican. In your opinion, what’s the best way for someone to create their own distinct personal style? Amelia Gregory, Editor, Amelia's Magazine   For me the only people who have a distinct personal style are those who...

Billy Idol at Brixton Academy

How cool to see your Idol and good friends. I really love going to see new bands and some new bands are really great performers but there is nothing like seeing good seasoned musicians. I love watching Steve Stevens play guitar - you really feel like he and his guitar are one. It's like a master class in old school rock 'n' roll. You know they could just walk their way through their set but they're major league and give you 110%, and of course Billy Idol has a better body then most 20...

Ossie Clark by Avsh Alom Gur

Avsh Alom Gur was appointed as Head of Design of the newly formed Ossie Clark fashion house in 2007. He graduated from a Fashion Masters at Central Saint Martins in 2002, and following consultancies for Donna Karan, Robert Cavalli and Nicole Farhi, Avsh Alom Gur launched his own womenswear and accessories label in 2005. I loved seeing his shows at London Fashion Week - definitely a hot ticket! Palette London has stocked Avsh Alom Gur’s label exclusively in the UK right from the very...

Look Book Shoot

I love working with "New Designers" - what's funny is most new designers aren't all that new - it's more that they're just not well known (yet!). Often you meet  a designer who's only 25 and they've been designing for the past 10 years. I worked on a look book shoot which went really well. There is so much planning involved but it pays off in the end when you have a great team! I know I talk a lot about the team but the synergy of the team is essentail to doing a great shoot; it's easy to...

A Sizzling Summer Cocktail Party!

Forward PR knows how to throw a good party - and I love a cocktail party! There were lots of delicious cocktails - Yum - Vermeer Chocolate & Rasmeers Martinis - the Martini glass gets me every time - the shape, the romance of it all! If something fruity is more your style Tapio - Raspberry & Rosehip with French Vodka! Delightful! We feasted on sushi and danced to music from Audio Sushi! Dance contest and awards for the best facial hair -men only ;) Michele Obi editor of My Fashion...

Beyoncé & Glamour

Beyoncé knows how to work the red carpet and she’s one of the few truly glamorous women of her generation. Her bold choices are often either a hit or a miss, but she wears this dress extremely well because we actually notice the girl more than the dress. Few of us could wear a canary yellow gown but it looks gorgeous against her caramel coloured skin. The simple & sophisticated chignon with just enough bling looks elegant and...

Olympic Athlete Shoot

Doing a photo shoot with Olympic athletes can be great, they already have such a strong presence and are comfortable with lots of people running around; which they can just ignore and focus on the task at hand. All the athletes are sponsored by Team Visa. When you have young athletes doing there first fashion photo shoot you need a strong team behind the camera: photographer Joe Lacey and art director Simon Costin! The energy was great and you just know it's going to be a fun shoot day! Tom...

Anita’s Vintage Fashion Fair

I love going to vintage fashion fairs. Many of the vendor have been collection and selling items for over 20 years so if you're looking for something special just ask them. They might not have brought it with them but most of the vendors have hundreds of items stashed away! I got two fabulous dresses for £10 each! The key to looking through vintage is to really take your time. I look for fabrics that I like - I don't really worry about the shape or cut as I know if I like the fabric I...

Lindsey Lohan designs Leggings!

Quilted Knee Pad leggings - I think these are quite fun & cheeky! Lindsey Lohan has signed an exclusive deal with Fred Segal stores and her leggings will be available in August. The line is called 6126 in honour of Lindsay's idol, Marilyn Monroe's...

Ada Zanditon

I met with the super petite designer Ada Zanditon in her super sized jacket! Ada graduated from London Collage of Fashion in 2007. She spent four season interning with Alexander McQueen and in 2007/8 she worked with Gareth Pugh as a pattern maker. These images are from Ada's graduate collection. I love the oversized shapes and how everything feels bit like a super hero. Lisa Snowden and Joan Collins have both been photographed wearing her clothes! For her next collection Ada is using...

A Doll’s House by Viktor & Rolf

I went to the opening preview of The Viktor & Rolf exhibition at the Barbican. It was quite amazing! I love the doll's house - I think every girl loves a doll's house. I had so many dolls when I was little, and my mum would make matching clothes for me and my dolls. I never had my own doll's house and was jealous of one girl who had a German doll house. Viktor & Rolf's doll house is 6m-high with three floors, endless rooms and it feels very luxurious and empty at the same time. There...

Ben Sherman

Ben Sherman and PPQ have collaborated on a new limited collection of dresses. There are only 175 dresses available in each look. There are 5 dresses and each one represents the look of the decade. PPQ has always been involved in the music scene and they even have their own record label 1-2-3-4. And of course Ben Sherman is known for supporting loads of bands. I love the shop windows on Carnaby Street!...

The Supremes at the V&A

The Story of The Supremes from the Mary Wilson Collection The Supremes - Mary, Diana and Flo, and later Cindy Birdsong, Jean Terrell, Lynda Lawrence, Scherrie Payne and Susaye Green were glamorours, strong and sexy looking women. I can't wait to see this exhibition, it's on until October 19th at the Victoria and Albert Museum (London). I feel spoiled for choice living in such a big city - there are always so many exhibitions and event to see and it's easy to put something off and see it...

Peaches Geldof and Victim, Mei-Hui Liu

Victim is one of my favourite shops. Most of Victim’s dresses are one of a kind, so they are very distinct and recognizable. They are made with vintage silks and lace: you feel very sexy and feminine when you wear them. Everything is designed by Mei-Hui Liu, a dear friend of mine. Peaches Geldof was in Mei-Hui’s shop Thursday after shooting at Concrete - another very cool shop on Marshall Street. As reported in The Sun, The Mirror and The Daily Mail, after Peaches left Mei-Hui...

The Tuesdai Leigh Experience

One of the things I like about Tuesdai Leigh is that she can’t be bothered to be pretentious. She just loves to sing and she’s a natural performer. I went to see Tuesdai Leigh perform and she’s the real thing. She has a huge voice and she sounds like a gospel/soul singer. Her influences range from Etta James and Aretha Franklin to Tracy Chapman and Nirvana. She lives on a tough North London estate and had no resources to make any kind of demo so she took things into her own...

Lily Allen goes Blond

(Photo by Bauer-Griffin) I was a bit shocked to see Lily Allen as a blond but the more I look at her, the more I like it. I have never been a blond and with my olive skin tones I don't think it's for me. I've had all sorts of colours in my hair. When I was at university every time I dyed some fabric I'd stick my head in the vat, it was mainly pink and orange. I tried to dye it navy blue once but the colour didn't really stay in. Recently I had a friend who bought some hair dye from Boots and...
