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

Amy Winehouse’s previously unreleased fashion collection for British high-street chain Fred Perry is now available to purchase. Attention turned to the 21-piece collection, following Winehouse’s death last month as to whether or not it would be released (pictured below).

“After much consideration and with the blessing of Amy’s family, we have decided to release the A/W 11-12 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collection. Amy was passionate and dedicated to the collaboration and her signature style is clearly stamped across each piece.
