Winged delights

i have been wearing winged eyeliner ardently for years now, when i say ardently i mean it, i feel naked without the flick of eyeliner swept across my eyelids...and now the flicked eyeliner is a key look for spring/summer..amy winehouse has a lot to answer for....

Wantsies part deux

I really really want a pair of wide leg jeans.. and the best around at the mo are the cult 70's brand - ditto available seemingly at Harvey Nichols...They would go great with my roller skates i found buried under my stairs, from when i was a kid, all i need now is a roller disco to attend...disco fever...Check out the dittos in action below..

Pearls of the Orient - 2008 Pirelli Calendar

I just checked out the 2008 Pirelli Calendar and i just cant get over how amazing it is, demure with a intense dramatic use of colour... The calendar has parted from previous editions which have been beautifully shot in black and white and being more overtly sexual. The calendar features models and actress: Maggie Cheung, Agyness Deyn, Lily Donaldson, Du Juan, Doutzen Kroes, Catherine McNeil, Mo Wandan, Sasha Pivovarova, Coco Rocha, Caroline Trentini and Gemma Ward.

When models attack

I sometimes dont understand how models do it...being made contort your body into weird positions to get the right shot, have people preening and at you the whole day, and then when you reach the biggish time have to deal with the mad modelling marathon that is fashion week - no sleep, constant preening and cameras in your wonder these models got nasty

Who, What Wear,

I really like this website it is like flicking through those pages in Now, and looking at the best and the worst dressed, but instead of having your one from eastenders, it actually features what influential people, like the editor of nylon and french vogue wear..and it is updated often. Warning: it does create intense wardrobe jealously though!

Stars in your eyes

I have a real soft spot for star embellished clothes..even though they can remind me of little emo/rockers. But this season stars shone brightly on the catwalk with a grown up and glamourous take...

YSL - Yves Saint Laurent focused heavily on stars for its collection from dresses to tops to necklaces. My favourite piece being the meshed black star top.

Chanel - decorated their runway carpet in stars and stuck to the basics by using white stars and a black backdrop. Stars adorned accessories as well.

Topshop has a very Chanel inspired dress in their spring/summer collection and it looks like its gonna be a popular get it while you can
