Kraftwerk is just one of those style-defining bands – here they are from 1980 performing Das Modell. To get an idea of how committed (and brave!) they were you really only have to look at the audience! They look like they’re watching a concert by alien beings or something! english version: She’s a model andContinue reading

Michael Jackson’s glove I was styling a shoot the other day and had this wonderful mesh glove (below) by Fannie Schiavoni. I’d seen her work a while back and was just waiting for the right shoot to use it in. Before Michael Jackson’s death it was just a glove – but actually it was neverContinue reading

I love PJ Harvey – she’s one of those female music artists who really are one-of-a-kind. Her style is unique to her, and that has a lot to do with her body type but it also has to do with her attitude – a kind of aggressive vulnerability that few artists have duplicated. This isContinue reading

What I loved about Susan Boyle’s performance is how the fans started cheering as soon as she started singing! Her performance was magnificent, and this kind of "diamond in the rough" performance is exactly what the show Britain’s Got Talent was made for, and you could tell by Simon Cowell’s face that he’d struck gold.Continue reading

I was lucky enough to see Eartha Kitt perform in Paris. She was amazing, and held the room captive when she sang. She was the original for the type of powerful woman who knows how to use their sexuality. She was the kind of woman who could scare a man – a real "man-eater!" TheContinue reading

There are so few pure looks nowadays – every look’s a hybrid. It makes you want to track down the original sources of the looks you see in fashion now, and here’s one: Susan Dey from the Partridge Family, circa 1970 – wow… source: eatskeet

I love Pink’s look in the video U + Ur Hand. I think she looks amazing and iconic. Pink might not have the most beautiful face in the world but that has nothing to do with her style power. Pink’s always has such a strong look and you always remember her. She’s done this fromContinue reading

I love Grace Jones. She’s everywhere right now and she’s releasing a new album in November, Hurricane – it’s her first studio album to be released in 19 years. She’s also on the cover of Dazed & Confused November issue with an art special in a 12-page visual collaboration with photographer Chris Cunningham. Grace JonesContinue reading


I’m not the kind of girl who wears a white shirt, but I’d like to. I do love the look of a crisp white shirt with a great black pencil skirt or even jeans but that all seems a little too predictable. If you’re wearing black and white you need to have a bit ofContinue reading


There are some people who have a gift of making you feel special, they take time when they speak with you and look you in the eye – it sounds so simple but it’s become so rare, so when it happens you fall under their spell and you can’t help but adore them. Joan BursteinContinue reading


Cate Blanchett is one of my favourite style icons – she looks great in just about anything. One of the most difficult challenges for an actress is figuring out what to wear to events before announcing to the world that you’re pregnant. You don’t want to look out of shape, but once you’ve announced yourContinue reading


Here’s a page from The Hairdresser’s Journal. I was asked to do a quick writeup on Jaime Pressly. Here’s the text just in case you find the image a bit small to read: So is Jamie Pressly a style icon just because she has been voted one of the sexiest women in the world andContinue reading
