September Inspiration

Bonjour Bunnies!

I cannot believe it is already September and time to reconsider my inspiration list for this blissful month.

This month I am delightfully looking forward to New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks and watching closely to discover what we will all be coveting for Spring / Summer 2012. Enjoying the simple pleasure of films which just exude timeless beauty- Roman Holiday, Some Like It Hot and Breakfast At Tiffany’s, amongst others. Embracing deliciously bright colours and patterns for Spring (here in the Southern Hemisphere); while simultaneously missing London and those beautiful Autumn leaves falling. And indulging in bubble baths and chocolate croissants…

An Amazing Magazine Cover – Vogue Paris, August 2011

Lara Stone graces the striking Vogue Paris, August 2011 cover. As Emmanuelle Alt’s fourth edition as Editor-In-Chief, the cover is a cinematic fashion moment! Stone wears a Haider Ackermann Fall 2011 coat and can be seen peering off into the distance on a Californian beach. Love the juxtaposition of the sandy beach with Stone’s unattainable glamorous beauty! Definitely one of my favourite covers of the year!
