I love it when you realise that one photographer is responsible for so many of your favourite photographs.

Dries Van Noten

I went into the Dries Van Noten shop in Paris this week. Not a designer I would usually take much notice of, in fact I don't think I have ever really consciously seen much by the label (part from when Victoria Beckham wore those ridiculous wedge trainers to throw the first ball at a baseball game in America) but there were so many things I now have to add to my wishlist for when I win the lottery!
The colours are amazing, loving the teal and orange with nude, plus the simple shapes and oversize knits mixed with the graphic prints and ruffle textures give it a simple but modern look.
The accessories are great - especially the sunglasses - and after seeing the looks on I'm also now hankering after the models perfect lipstick shade and multiple kirby grips look.

I'm so sorry I haven't been on here for a few days. Currently working in Florence, which is one of my favourite cities! But it means that I have had no time for posts.
I'm back in Paris on Friday so will be up and running again then. Have a good week!

Kristen Stewart was in London this evening for a New Moon party in Battersea.
On the red carpet she chose one of my favourite outfits from the Proenza Schouler SS2010 collection. I think it looks pretty good on her, the colours are very striking with her dark hair.

No Return for Gemma

images from various sources..sorry I can't remember exactly where

I have been meaning to write a post about Gemma Ward for so long now.
She's one my favourite models ever and I always miss her during Fashion week.
She has now announced that she has no plans to return to modelling in the near future :(

Recent photos of her looking larger than her tiny model size0 have appeared on a few blogs and some of the media are blaming bloggers for her decision after they supposedly attacked her over her weight gain. I say let's leave the girl to whatever she does that makes her happy (...not sure if she is still acting?).

But does anyone else miss Gemma from the catwalks and glossy pages?

Luella No More?

Luella Autumn/Winter 2009

News broke this morning that Luella Bartley has lost the backing of Club21 for her eponymous label and Luella has therefore stopped trading.

"This is a very disappointing situation for everyone involved with the brand," Bartley said in a statement this morning. "I very much appreciate the support that [Club 21 subsidiary] VSQ has given me, but it is upsetting not to be able to protect jobs in this difficult economic climate. I love the Luella character and hope that after we have survived this challenging time the Luella girl can have an exciting future ahead of her, whichever incarnation she takes on next. We have a number of options open to us, and are considering these over the coming months."

It's how they wear it..

Just next to my hotel in Paris is a small clothes shop with an interesting idea for displaying their clothes.
Haven't actually been into the shop yet but surely if it's good enough for Marc, Alber and Sonia then they must have something good?! hmmmmm...

I think the illustrations are quite amusing though.

Highstreet Chloe

My new favourite highstreet shop recently has been Zara, and having looked at their lookbook this weekend I intend to be straight down there to pick up some very Chloe-esque pieces. They also have a pair of beige wedge boots that look suspiciously similar to the Chloe boots from AW09 for less than £80.
Couldn't get a picture from the website but Zara seems to be on every corner in Paris so hopefully will get a chance to have a proper look tomorrow.

What do you think of the new collection?

Another Natalie Cover


I am a fan of Natalie Portman but sometimes I think she just always looks the same in editorials/cover shoots. Regardless, she looks stunning on the front of this month's V magazine.
Personally I prefer the last shot to the first cover which is a bit hard looking.
