A Fashion Flashback
Some Fabulous Friday Fashion Inspiration…
Add Karen Elson; Grace Coddington; & Mario Testino = Beautiful, Timeless Imagery
My Weekend Fashion Inspiration has come from this divine Vogue Editorial featuring Karen Elson, styled by Grace Coddington and photographed by Mario Testino. Originally published in Vogue US March 2008 issue, Karen Elson‘s ‘Hollywood Land’ editorial is quite simply elegance personified!
Striking head pieces; spectacular silhouettes; show stopping pumps – the 1950’s Hollywood inspired shoot is timeless perfection. Elson channels the elegance and sophistication of bygone Hollywood leading ladies the likes of Grace Kelly. The soft colour palette, amazing wardrobe and picturesque locations are all to-die-for!
What are you up to this weekend?
I hope it’s fashionably fabulous in every way! 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)…

>> 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

Speaking of Charlotte Olympia… she seems to have her heels on everyone’s feet! Loved by many of the world’s most fashion conscious celebrities, Charlotte Olympia heels are sexy, sophisticated and ever-so-chic! (pictured right)
London IT girl, Charlotte Olympia Dellal launched her label in 2006. Inspired by the glamour of the 40’s and 50’s; her designs are known for their use of block colour and Perspex heels. Her signature spider’s web adorns each pair.
With fans including the very fashionable likes of; Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Keira Knightley, Olivia Palermo, Emma Watson and more; Charlotte Olympia heels will definitely make a statement!
My favourites: The Charlotte Olympia Paloma pumps which feature a divine pleated ruffle on the back. Olivia Palermo has Paloma pumps in the several different colours! I think my favourite is the red! Below are some of Charlotte Olympia’s fans wearing her killer heels…
