4 Friday Espresso Shots Of News…
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.

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…
Happy Friday! xx

The looks on the catwalk…
1>> Kate Bosworth looked divine in an Erdem Spring / Summer 2011 look. The white lace and red embroidered flowers are sophisticated, feminine and simply perfect!

3>> While in Madrid for ‘Herbal Essences’; another Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester, wore a black dress from the Versus Autumn / Winter 2010 collection. A classic little black dress at it’s best!
