Saturday… the perfect day for some Fashion News (especially when it envolves Kate Moss)…
Miranda Kerr has bared all for a new Photography book V2. Taken by the renowned photographer Russell James, V2 represents the “young goddesses of today”. Kerr’s series of photos are sensational and feature her frolicking on the beach. Another model included in V2 is Brooklyn Decker.
Kate Moss For Isabel Marant
Kate Moss is the face of Isabel Marant’s Fall 2010 campaign. Moss is a perfect fit for the rock’ n’ roll styling, chic yet edgy French brand.
Marant’s Fall collection is a sexy, streamlined take on fifties finesse. Undeniably cool, think sexy skinny black Capri pants hidden under luxurious coats. There are rolled-hem leather pants, baseball-inspired jackets, faded denim jackets, sparkly tees and pointed mid-height bow pumps. 50’s inspired neckties also make an appearance.
Moss is photographed above in my favourite look from the Fall collection. For effortless, bohemian, French style… there is no other brand quite like it.
The Most Powerful Woman In Fashion
The First Lady, Michelle Obama, is now believed to be the most powerful person in fashion. This is the case as the economic value of the brands she chooses to wear have been boosted in total of up to $2.7billion. Jason Wu is one such designer who has been pushed into the spotlight. Wearing one of Wu’s designs to the inaugural ball in January 2009, the label is now stocked around the world and his New York Fashion Week show a must-see.
Best Dressed Straight From The Runway
This week celebrities embraced looks straight from the Catwalk. Blake Lively looked stunning in a Lanvin look from the Fall2010 collection. Michelle Williams chose one of my favourite pieces from Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Meanwhile, a glowing Claire Danes worked the ladylike look in a red Prada Fall2010 dress. And finally Freida Pinto worked a Marchesa Resort2011 embellished gown. Such gorgeous ladies and such spectacular gowns…xx

The first look from the Lanvin for H&M collaboration was released just the other day and now the second image has surfaced (pictured above). In gorgeous floral prints and delicious shades, these dresses are simply darling! I know which dress I will be after on November 23rd – Natasha Poly’s pink floral frock!
2010 Fantasy Bra
Victoria’s Secret Angel, Adriana Lima, wore the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra down the pink carpet in New York City. Worth $2 million, the Fantasy Bra consists of 3,000 jewels. That’s 142 carats of white diamonds, topazes and sapphires. It needed six craftsmen to complete the piece over a period of 1,500 hours. The spectacular bra will make an appearance at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on November 10th. 29-year-old Lima said of Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra, “It’s really a work of art. I love diamonds – they’re always a girl’s best friend!”. This year a recession-friendly crystal version of bra will also be available to buy in stores for $250, leading up to Christmas.
Ugg & Jimmy Choo
Jimmy Choo has created a special capsule collection with Ugg Australia. Striving to capture the best of both brands – the comfort of Ugg and the spirit of Jimmy Choo – the limited edition collection turns the functional Ugg boots into works of art. Meanwhile this week, Jimmy Choo President and Co-Founder, Tamara Mellon, received an OBE for her services to the Fashion industry.
Victoria Beckham’s Twitter Advertising Finesse
What better way to advertise her new range of sunglasses then by modelling them on her gorgeous husband, Mr. David Beckham? Well there is no better way! Mr. Beckham wears the Classic Aviator in the ‘Sky’ colourway. Mrs. Beckham also urged her followers to sign-up now for a pair from her new collection, tweeting: ‘Get on the waiting list at Harvey Nicks! New #victoriaBeckham glasses drop at the end of Nov!’
Calvin Klein Ads Banned in Australia
The Calvin Klein Jeans Campaign, starring Lara Stone, has been banned in Australia. The photographic and video content was deemed inappropriate – glamorising gang rape and violence towards women. What do you think of the Campaign? Do you find it inappropriate or High-Fashion Edge?

If you are like me and the idea of doing laundry leaves you cold, then take some inspiration from the stunning Lily Donaldson, Gemma Ward and Caroline Trentini. Taken by Steven Meisel and originally published in Vogue US December 2005 issue, these shots turn the seemingly mundane task of washing into a ball gown affair…xx

Lanvin for H&M
I am certain everyone is just as excited about the Lanvin for H&M collaboration as I am! And it’s not very far away now. Due to hit stores Nov 23 rd, the first image of what we can expect was released yesterday. (pictured above)
Featuring many Lanvin signature trademarks – the asymmetrical neckline, ruffles, nipped in waists and ultra feminine styles – you will now be able to add some Lanvin flare to your wardrobe for the price tag of H&M. What is sure to be a very quick sell-out, customers will also be able to buy online through H&M’s ecommerce site just launched in September.
J’aime mon carré
(I love my scarf)
Hermès will be opening two pop up shops in London dedicated to their brand J’aime mon carré – or I love my scarf.
To be located in Shoreditch and West London, they will open in November in succession – the Shoreditch branch from Nov 17th to 25th and West London from Nov 25th. Both shops will be dedicated to the beautiful classic Hermès scarf. Expert staff will be on hand to show you different ways to tie them. I cannot wait!
Best Dressed List – Keira Knightly in Chanel
As many of you may know Chanel is my absolute favourite. My fashion heaven. So whenever a celebrity steps out in Chanel it instantly captures my attention. Keira Knightley wore a stunning Chanel dress at the London premiere of Never Let Me Go.
A Chanel favourite, Knightley’s dress is from the Fall Couture 2010 collection. Covered in thousands of pearls, the neckline and sleeves are also draped perfectly with them. The striking cut-outs at the waist slim the figure and highlight the skin with subtle sophistication. A perfect score for Knightley and Chanel on this one!
