Some Olivia Palermo Espresso News…

Olivia Palermo – the model, actress, New York socialite and international IT girl of the moment, is the new face of a Mango Autumn / Winter campaign. German model Johannes Huebl, Palermo’s real-life boyfriend, is also featured in the shots.

Vampy, sleek and sexy, Mango have brought out a different side of Palermo’s usually sweet, preppy style. My favourite piece in this campaign is the asymmetrical cocktail dress with sequin detailing (pictured above left). It is such a luscious shade and who can resist that divine sparkle?!

Poppy Delevingne and Scarlett Johansson will also be featured in the new ads campaigns.

Such a stunning girl, gorgeous clothes and those glamorous dark lips…. love it! xx

Model Magnifique

I heart Abbey Lee Kershaw

Photo1 from & Photo2 from

Abbey Lee Kershaw is my favourite model of the moment.

As one of the most coveted faces in fashion, 23year old Kershaw is currently featured in the following campaigns for Fall / Winter 2010: Chanel, Mulberry, Fendi, Ana Sui, Calvin Klein, Jaeger, Gap, H&M, as well as Alexander Wang’s Campaign Video! She particularly caught my eye after she closed the Chanel Spring 2010 couture show and opened the Chanel Fall/Winter10/11 show – Karl Lagerfeld does have magnificent taste!

Also hailing from Australia (like me), Kershaw was born in Melbourne and began her rise to fame after winning the 2004 Girlfriend Magazine Modelling Competition. Quite a humble beginning seeing as she is now ranked 5th on the Top 50 Female Models list by Kershaw is the face of Gucci’s ‘Flora’ fragrance. She has graced the cover of Australian Vogue three times, as well as Vogue Nippon (Japan) twice. She has also been on the cover of Korean, Russian and German Vogue; Numero magazine four times; and Dazed and Confused twice.

Currently living in New York, NY; Kershaw has her nose and nipple pierced. As of 2009 she had eight tattoos. She is also reportedly friends with fellow models; Karlie Kloss Daisy Lowe, Freja Beha Erichsen, Cat McNeil, Karmen Pedaru and Jonatan Frenk.

Vogue Australia November Feature below:

For the November issue of Vogue Australia, Abbey Lee Kershaw graces the cover and also transforms into a 1970’s disco diva in the fashion story ‘The Last Days of Disco’. Gorgeous silhouettes highlight the striking 70’s vibe. Pieces by Emilio Pucci, Gucci and Hermes capture the feeling to perfection…xx

This is part 2 of my favourite designer & high street takes from the Autumn / Winter trends. The other major looks to cover this fall are: Opulence, Leather, Lace, Military and Global Traveller… I hope you enjoy!    


After all the talk of minimalism some designers did rebel, creating opulent pieces covered in sparkling darling embellishments. From rich gold embroidery to an abundance of sequins and feathers – ornate looks accompanied by dynamic statement accessories stood out at: Balmain, Elie Saab, Alexander McQueen, D&G and more.   

Designer Choice: Elie Saab (pictured above)
At Elie Saab opulent cocktail and full length evening dresses shined in this gorgeous shade. The cut out detailing and deep V neckline gives an undeniably sexy note to this sparkling vision.     

High Street Choice: 1971 Reiss (pictured above)
1971 Reiss embellished bomber jacket is too cool for school! It’s sexy and sparkly but with an edge. Love the striking sequined pattern!
