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…Continue reading

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…Continue reading

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…Continue reading

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…Continue reading

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.…Continue reading

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 –…Continue reading

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…Continue reading

olympics_shoot1

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…Continue reading

anitavintagefashion-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…Continue reading

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 birthday.

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…Continue reading

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…Continue reading

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…Continue reading

TeaParty_Shop.jpg

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…Continue reading

Tuesdai_1.jpg

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…Continue reading

(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…Continue reading
