Prada’s family owned company is set to float on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In what is set to mean big changes for the luxury brand, Prada will become a public company after 98years. Prada is also made up of labels: Miu Miu, Church’s and Car Shoe. While this is the fourth time Prada has attempted such a move; depending on how many shares Miuccia Prada and her husband Patrizio Bertelli (company chief executive) chose to sell, they could boost their personal fortunes significantly…

Gorgeous In Gucci…

Glamorous, Striking, Powerful, Sexy = Gucci 

Lara Stone looks spectacular in Gucci as she graces the cover of Vogue Paris February 2011 issue…

Wearing my favourite dress from the Gucci Spring / Summer 2011 collection; Lara Stone was photographed by Mario Sorrenti posing in front of a gorgeous flower garden. With popping purple eye shadow, pouting red lips and her tousled blonde hair; Stone looks the epitome of Spring goddess. The dress; Stone; and cover design; are simply divine! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS COVER!

Gucci Spring / Summer 2011

Opening with an electric bolt of colour (in the form of an orange blazer, violet strapless top, gold belt and green trousers); Gucci’s S/S11 collection saw a return to high voltage glamour. The collection exuded a spirit reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent.“I pushed the accelerator on the provocation“, said Frida Giannini of the collection.

Splitting the collection into three distinct segments, it featured jewel colour combinations, camel and black before finishing with bright tribal inspired cocktail dresses. Dresses were woven with leather while jewels and feathers added a spectacular dash of detailing. It was glamorous tribal energy at its best! Dark orange, gold, emerald and black made for an impressive ending statement to the collection.

Are you loving or loathing the Gucci S/S 11 collection? xx

Fashion Magazines Are My Addiction…

Each month I purchase several fashion magazines – between Vogue (the US, UK and Australia versions are a must) as well as Elle (UK and Australia). I also end up buying a few others depending on which covers captivate me the most. And for January 2011 it looks like I will be buying a lot of Fashion Magazines!

January covers just look spectacular! A New Year looks set to bring colour, joy and sexy sophistication. My absolute favourite January 2011 covers (pictured above)

>> Lily Donaldson for Harper’s Bazaar US
>> Emily Blunt for Harper’s Bazaar UK

I also love the Muse Winter 2010 Covers, starring Paz de la Huerta, Carolyn Murphy, Edita V & Magdalena (pictured right). Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Salma Hayek for V Magazine Spain is simply mesmerising (pictured below)! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

What is your fashion addiction? xx
