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

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
