But oh, how fun it is to wrap up warm...

Natasha, Exposed


I find myself mesmerised by Natasha Poly's face at the best of times but the Russian beauty now takes centre stage in the Marco Brambilla / Muse magazine video, Ghost (Natasha Poly: Multiple Exposure). Watch it at, it's incredible.

Alexander Wang, the man we love for his effortlessly chic facade, or what he calls, "model off duty," – and the man we love even more for putting THOSE messed up plaits on his AW ’09 runway has been interviewed by Colin McDowell for Ponystep magazine. Read it here!

Trick or Treat

The big day might still be a couple of weeks away but US Harper's have gone all out for Halloween in their October issue. The Tim Walker shots are stunning, I do love a gothic fairytale.

McQueen Dream


Photos from the Alexander McQueen ready to wear show in Paris. I'm not always a fan of McQueens psychedelic prints but am loving this collection - and my god, look at those shoes.

Like A Prayer

An incredible editorial from the current Dansk magazine - shot by Signe Vilstrup. The colours are fantastic and there's something very Madonna circa 1989 about it - feminine and ferocious with a religious twist.

Picture Purrfect

Love these pictures of Vanessa Traina in Givenchy haute couture. I thought I'd had it with headpieces but when paired with the simple black shirt and unbelievably sexy shoes it's perfect.

Wild Things

Photos: Opening Ceremony

I'm yet to decide whether or not I'm excited about Spike Jone's film adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are. The treasured tale was one of my favourites growing up - a fantastical account I remember so vividly from the story book pages I can't quite bear to view it any other way. What does seem fitting, though, is the film-makers collaboration with Opening Ceremony. They've come up with a collection featuring faux-fur pieces as well as 'Wild' jewellery by Pamela Love. The original story was all about going beyond limits, and some of these pieces really do. I'm particularly fond of the jacket on the bottom right - then again the furry skirt above wouldn't go a miss either. Who'd have thought it, Max, Style Icon...

Underneath It All

On Saturday I went to the Undercover exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum. Not only were there some beautiful designs, standing with two of my female friends I felt bizarrely, err, uplifted. The power of the bra is not to be underestimated. The above photos are a few of my favourites. The Christian Lacroix piece is stunning from the waist up - I never have been a fan of ruffles though. Or colour for that matter.

Just One Issue...

Photos: Vogue & Me

I had planned to see The September Issue on the day it came out, but due to unforeseen busy-ness I didn't watch the masterpiece until over two weeks later. Oh but how good it was. It has been said by many people but Grace Coddington truly is a legend - the shoot above is incredible. One of my favourite photographs, a double page spread of all the girls, didn't make print for being 'too fussy'. Fuss is what I look to Vogue for...

Mini Pleasures

I went through a little stage of lusting for the Minimarket zipper boots - but held out for my beautiful Burberry's instead. I had a peak at some of the other boots on offer from the brand at fashion week and I'm glad I resisted. I now feel ready to make my next boot purchase but I can't decide between the black wedge lace ups and the wooden wedges. On second thoughts I think I'm warming towards the wooden wedges, there's something quite Balenciaga 2006 about them. Now, where can I find a studded harness...?

Dazzle Me, Damn It

I know these fashion week posts are coming a little late - but the Ashish show really is one worth waiting for. As well as attracting a very cute VV Brown to his show, the 'King of Sequins' gave a glorious display of shoulder pads, paint splatters, bumbags and studs. My excitable photos don't really do the pieces justice but I'm pining for the sparkly black dress with the spiked shoulders - and unspeakably I can now also envisage myself in a black bumbag, studded of course.
