Celebrating A Timeless Icon

“Big Girls Need Big Diamonds.” – Elizabeth Taylor

 

In the Fall edition of V Magazine, both Kate Winslet and Lara Stone channel iconic style icon Elizabeth Taylor. Shot by Mario Testino and styled by Carine Roitfeld, the imagery is simply mesmerisingly beautiful.

To evoke the screen goddess, Kate Winslet wears scarves and turbans paired with glittering diamonds and gems from Harry Winston, David Webb and Chanel. Lara Stone channels a pink haired Elizabeth Taylor in pin-up inspired looks and even poses with miniature pet figurines…

Très Chic!

 

Hope you all have an iconic weekend! xx

Carine Roitfeld’s Shock Departure from Vogue Paris

In news that is certainly set to shock the magazine world, Carine Roitfeld (above right) has resigned from Vogue Paris. Having been with the highly coveted fashion bible for over ten years, Roitfeld will leave at the end of January 2011. Of her departure, Jonathan Newhouse, ceo of Condé Nast International, has said:

“It is impossible to overstate Carine’s powerful contribution to Vogue and to the fields of fashion and magazine publishing. Under her direction, Vogue Paris received record levels of circulation and advertising and editorial success.”

It is not currently known who will replace Roitfeld.  This will be announced in the coming weeks.

It has been announced, Rumer Willis (daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore) will be the new face of Badgley Mischka’s Spring / Summer 2011 campaign. Designers, Mark Badgley & James Mischka, have said of choosing the actress: “Rumer captures the spirit of all of our spring collections, especially our newly launched Mark + James collection.” Mark Badgley, James Mischka and Rumer Willis are pictured above left.

Erdem Pre-Fall 2011/12

Erdem is a personal favourite of mine. I love everything about the label – the use of exquisite lace, the divine floral embroidery and those unbelievably beautiful prints.

Erdem has just unveiled his first Pre-Fall collection. Creating ladylike shapes and new prints, this collection is ultra chic, feminine and simply put… to die for! Designer Erdem Moralioglu, achieves the incredible prints by capturing the images digitally, then manipulating them, before photocopying them. He described the collection as “filled with pieces that can be put together or taken apart and worn every day of the year.” My favourite looks from the Erdem Pre-Fall collection are pictured right…
