Sweaty Betty

Fashion has a new face!...

OK, US bloggers are probably way ahead already but its coming to the UK in just six sweet days!

(Channel 4, Friday 5 Jan 9.30PM)

Produced by Salma Hayek, Ugly Betty is about the superficial world of high fashion!
It stars America Ferrera (Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants) as well as roles with the Dean and Caleb from the O.C, so it should be sufficiently trashy and amusant!

Heres a little peek of what to expect.



Yay, so excited.

Anyone got any feedback on what its like?

The Ashley Hair Cycle

...Guess what!...

Ashley has done it again.

It seems this girl just can't make up her mind.

and she's fueled round two of the blonde vs brunette olsen debate.

Hmm...

Hot Hot Heat

This "flaming beauty" is up and coming canadian model Judith Berdard.
With her red mane she's like an edgier Elson, and shes managed to get herself a contract with the very chic french modelling agency Marilyn who also deal with Irina, Coco Rocha, Iekeliene Stange and La Moss herself.

I love her blunt fringe, porcelain complexion and versatile looks shown below. From pony girl chic to strange and beautiful!

I'm back! And these girls are biting each other's style!

OK, so the Christmas posting was kind of disrupted by...Christmas!

hmm, ironic.

So sadly, there was no "Day Seven" post.

but...instead is this...

anyone noticed the outbreak of monochrome striped polos (and pairing with McQueen scarves?...) in LA LA Land? Is there a sale on in Kitson or something?

I thought this issue needed to be addressed..

How was everyones christmas by the way?

The Seven Days of Christmas: Day Six

Day Six: "Pheww, its gettin hot in herre!" (Blame Jil Sander)

After hours spent drooling over the dazzling collections from Lanvin, Karen Walker, Christopher Kane and Proenza Schouler (to name a few) on Style.com, I don't think it would be possible to anticipate next season with anymore desperation!

If the catwalks are anything to go by, spring is set to be hawwt! Feast your eyes on the full spectrum of colourful delights from the Jil Sander SS 07 collection.

The Seven Days of Christmas: Day Five

Day Five: "We like Short Shorts!"

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well, of course, surely it goes without saying that short shorts don't make ideal streetwear. But lets take a leaf out of Freddie Mercury's book, because really, its the thought that counts!

Absolutley love the cute little sequined hotpants, spotted on the chanel catwalk, and they worked so well at Prada (see top left) when paired with volumous blouses.

Saw Keisha from the Sugababes on a T4 special yesterday, looking fabulous in a pair of high waisted denim shorts, paired with a floral blouse. They are styled by the fabulous Cynthia Lawrence-John (check out her website to get a look at some of the great editorials that she has styled!).

Below are some of the best shorts available on the high street at the moment, I love them because they are unashamedly different from all the other high street shops.

Pair with woolly tights, boyfriend cut jackets and daring platform heels during this cold winter weather if you're feeling especially daring!

The Seven Days of Christmas: Day Four

Day Four: Dunst Special

Kirsten Dunst is one of my style icons, purely because she has the ability to go from grungey-casual daywear to red-carpet-glamour so easily. I've found some of my favourite examples of her street looks, and discovered that just like everyone, Kiki has her favourite pieves that she rewears and rewears (Although unlike everyone, they happen to include a chanel handbag!), but christ, the RayBans never leave her head!

Anyway, its very refreshing to see that despite her celebrity status, she doesn't feel obliged to only wear something once, and that she settles for simple things!

The Seven Days of Christmas: Day Three


The Seven Twelve Wonders of The World

Its the first day of the christmas holidays, and its so cold and misty outside, that when I look out of my window, instead of being greeted by my usual city views, all I can see is a few nearby trees and then neverending white!

So I though "What better way to spend my time than compiling a list of the best models of 2006/7?"
In no particular order, the list consists of twelve models, ranging from well known to freshly selected...

  1. Kim Noorda
  2. Hilary Rhoda
  3. Jessica Stam
  4. Freja Beha Erichsen
  5. Coco Rocha
  6. Hye Park
  7. Tanya Dziahileva
  8. Bette Frank
  9. Chanel Iman
  10. Behati Prinsloo
  11. Agyness Deyn
  12. Irina Lazareanu

Day Two: 2006 recap

2006 in my opinion was a great year, although its quite a blur as somehow it managed to fly by and leave everybody feeling a little bit confused as to where on earth 365 days went!

As a treat, heres a little 4:59 minute clip of the highlights of the Paris Fashion Week.



Whatever your day has thrown at you (in my case it was pretty up and down-but it was the last day of school before christmas, so yay!) just forget it for 4.59 minutes and lose yourself in a world of Futurism, Florals and...Wintour

The Seven Days of Christmas: Day One

Day One: Daisy Lowe

OK, so I adapted the 12 Days OF Christmas. slightly. After all, everything needs a little updating every now and then.

So here is the first installment of the seven days of christmas!

and look how gorgeous she is!...

One Night In Paris

So I never gave an update on my trip to Paris!

It was a veery hectic weekend, but also very fun, despite the little glitches that were encountered!

The trip was my first time, and I went with about 20 other people from my school, which was great, but I'm also the kind of person who romances with the idea of exploring an unknown city alone, and those illusions were kind of shattered (but then again, what did I expect?)

The highlight of the weekend in terms of shops was probably our short snoop around Fauchion where I stocked up on summer fruits insence and little christmas present lovelies for the family.

The only disappointment was not being able to go to Collette...


But Anyway, wanted to share a little selection of my favourite pictures from the trip.

Le Soir; The Champs Elysee

Merrily, Merrily..

I'm a little obsessed with photographing Merry-go-Rounds, but they're so pretty. Heres the latest addition to my collection, from Sacre Ceour.

Graffiti Chic

I loved this random piece of graffiti. Rather annoyingly, the picture is tres blurry. But it pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, Peter Pan and funnily enough, the artist!


As colourful as the Lanvin 07 SS Collection...

" You don't make friends with salad! "

These girls are so beautiful and are lucky to be blessed with such exquisite cheekbones and dainty european doll features, but they're ruining these fantastic advantages by being too skinny!

I understand the fact that models who are slimmer present the clothes to people in a more versatile way, but look at Sasha's baggy eyes! They're turning into two hollow holes in her face, and her beautiful blue eyes are fading!

Even top make up artists can't hide the grey shading of their sockets!

Someone do us a favour and swap their Fiji and salad for a milkshake and a good slab of cheesy lasagne!

stay safe, kids, and don't give into the xanga girls!

Watch out Tommy the Clown!

How mothercrunking cute does Ashley look!?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She looks like shes about to start Krumping!

Now that would be a site..

Madonna finds something else to add to her CV!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

From countless Albums to (flop) films, and from Sex books to childrens books, Madge is adding yet another collection with H and M to her CV.

But hopefully rather than last times tacky plastic tracksuits, something a little more sophisticated will be in order! The collection is a collaboration with the shop's artistic director Margareta van den Bosch who also collaborated with Stella McCartney as part of her collection for the store. Somehow I can't imagine to same riots taking place in H and M stores; shes hardly Viktor and Rolf or Stella!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The collection is called " M by Madonna" (hmm.. how imaginative) and is set to hit les stores next march. She said "To work with Margareta and H&M is for me a new challenge and exciting."

Looks like Madge is set to take a leaf of out the 'celebrity collaborations book' because both Jade Jagger and Kate Moss are releasing collections in the same month.

Details of Nonsense: KtotheATE

Then:

Still, Now:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Hey check it out.

Talk about details of celebrity nonsense is always fun. Pour example: "Aw. I feel sorry for Mel B!" "Gisele eats pizza!" (Lipstick Lady) "wow, check out britneys Lei! " and general gossipy shizzle.

So look everybody at the important event that is the airing of KM's Feathery Coat!

Back in 2000 and bla at the launch of Another Magazine, Kate and her Cape enjoyed a night out on the town.

and it looks like her BBF has been her shoulder to cry on (so to speak) during last weeks Doherty Drug Saga Number 27, so out they went to her Auction Party.

Well wasn't that fun!
