Mind the Gap

all via google images

Too many people go for the all American white veneers to cover their natural smiles.
That always reminds me of the Friends episode when Ross' teeth actually do glow in the dark with UV lights!

I know it helps when you're pretty darn beautiful to start with (a la Vanessa, Georgia and co) but I think a little imperfection is much more interesting...

What do you think?
Would you go for the multi million dollar smile over au naturel?!

French label Carven has been getting quite a lot of press recently thanks to it's head designer Guillame Henry, who introduced a RTW line at the couture house for the first time this season.

navy jersey mini dress with silk-chiffon skirt £335 at net-a-porter

I think this dress would look great on Kristen Stewart, a good mix of dark colours and sports luxe with a girly edge.

Pieces from Summer 2010 are available now at but I'm waiting for the Winter 2010 "Miu Miu meets Celine" collection!

Love the styling - the mix of muted colours, the collars, the belted waists and oversized coats.

Run free

i found this recently...please let me know if you know the source!

Does anyone know a stockist for these Ruby shoes????

Saturday Rain

It's pouring with rain and my room is beyond a mess..I now have 3 bags I still need to unpack from recent trips to Paris. sooo the best thing to do is wait by my front door for the new Vogue to drop onto the mat to provide a fresh distraction.
I always look forward to unwrapping it and discovering the brand new cover, this time I showed it to my boyfriend before I looked and asked him if I would be happy or annoyed by this month's cover.
'I don't think you'll be too pleased' was his answer

photo by me (i tried to scan it but the orange always comes out pink)

and well, I'm not delighted.

What have they done to Cameron!?!
Is it just me or does she look like a dodgy blonde Courtney Cox Arquette?
I think it's got something to do with the eyes.

Plus why do they need to cram so much oversized type on the cover?

It was a all bit of nightmare before the party seeing as I left it far too late to get home to get changed after work...bad planning, very bad. Luckily I was helped out by a friend who lent me a Marc by Marc Jacobs top (that I wore as a was long on me, I'm short..) and then made a mad dash to a nearby New Look for a pair of leggings and the plainest pair of heels I could find before they closed in 10 minutes.

New Look £22

Not bad for a last minute outfit that cost me a total of £30!
Plus the shoes (with help from only one plaster) stayed on my feet all night.

The only problem I had was with a stray piece of chewing gum that got stuck on both legs when I sat down...seriously who goes to an LV party and sticks their chewing gum to the nearest surface grrrr.

Post Party

with my own goodie bag of flowers from the table centre pieces... we were told we could take them, however some took it a bit far when light bulbs started to go missing from the long hanging lights.
It would seem flowers?... a yes yes yes...light bulbs? a no no no

the morning after, the flowers looked a lot brighter than me!

Where to start...

Gwyneth Paltrow wearing, as yet unreleased Cruise 2010 Louis Vuitton
She is actually wearing the dress back to front - not sure if this was a styling tip to make it more revealing or a genuine mistake!!

Alexa Chung looking sparkly in Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 - I completely overlooked this top on the catwalk but it looked so very lovely on her.

Natalia Vodianova in my favourite look of the night - SS09
The colour was gorgeous on her and she looked absolutely radiant.

pictures from,,

There is almost to much to say about last night's LV party, the store, the party, Donna Summer, the forest, the yurt, the light bulbs, the dancers, the train carriage, the speakeasy, the flowers, the dancefloor, the corridors, the bondage orgy dancers...yes really!,
I will try and get some of my own photos up very soon but if you haven't read this in the Evening Standard tonight then have a look because I think it pretty much sums up the night.

Evening Standard Article

Don't give up the day jobs?!

Marc Jacobs, Julie De Libran (LV Head Designer) and Fabrizio Vitti (LV shoe designer) take on the duties of backing singers for Donna Summer at last night's Louis Vuitton Bond Street shop opening after party!!!


Last night I spent the evening at the new Louis Vuitton Bond Street shop opening and after party...I haven't managed to up load my photos yet so check back later but I can tell you that the party was full of fashionistas and celebrities as would be expected

Kirsten Dunst wearing Fall2010 LV looking very blonde with a bob chatting with Leith Clark (who I really wanted to introduce myself to!) and Clemence Posey.
Natalie Vodianova looked stunning in a short coral dress...
Gwyneth Paltrow wore a navy short body con dress with slicked back hair and looked radiant
Alexa Chung looked as cool as always in sequins and a line skirt
Pixie Geldof looked a god awful mess...and rumour has it she was stealing from the shop when some party guests thought they saw her putting LV purses into her and her friend's bag.
Thandie Newton looked every bit the party queen in a very short mustard-y coloured silk dress with an open back that had jewelled straps racing across it.
Carine it ok to love and fear someone at the same time?
Jerry Hall and Angelica Houston were chilling out in the exclusive apartment upstairs..this is the quiet area they told me...the apartment is located on a secret floor accessible only by a lift with a secret code!

Check back later for photos and more party gossip..including when Marc Jacobs and two of the LV designers got up on stage to sing karaoke with Donna Summer!!

She's Got it Covered

Yes I know! The original is much better but I want to hang from the ceiling on a glittery moon and throw glitter (or "YAY" as it is called in my house).

Vogue Brazil May 2008

I love finding old editorials that are still so relevant - leather shorts anyone!
Plus anything with Daria in is instantly a favourite

Apologies for the lack of posts in the last few days, I finally got to spend some time at home in London so took the opportunity to sleep, see friends and chill out.
Back in Paris now but only for a few days and then home again for nearly 3 weeks! Woohoo.

I was talking to a friend the other day who thought it was strange that I get excited when I have a new follower or when someone new comments on my blog but I think it's nice that there are people around the world who I will probably never meet who have similar ideas and likes that we can share.

So if you read my blog, are a follower or simply ended up here by mistake then please comment and tell me one interesting thing about yourself...I'll start.

I am 25 and I work in London and Paris...I find it quite exhausting, but sometimes terribly exciting.

This week I have been mostly reading...

Deerlings & Ghostthings -

- Kinda like Haw-Lin, but they post one piece of inspiration every day. I think it's still quite new and not many people seem to know about it, but I love the mix of images.-

- my newest follower and thanks to this I have come across her wonderful illustrated blog. Check it out now!

Carey Cannes

vogue, not sure
After the disappointment of her outfit at the Met Gala a few weeks ago I am loving this Azzaro ensemble that Carey wore to the Cannes film festival - I know these pictures are a couple of days old now and a lot of you will probably have already seen this elsewhere but I love the pearl detail on the oversized peter pan collar!

Life's a Beach

Cy Twombly
Miramare - By the Sea, Gaeta, 2005

Found these photos by Cy Twombly today
Reminded me of the Prada collection in stores now.
Love how vintage the prints look even though they were taken in 2005.
