The people who live it.





Nicole Richie and the Vamp

Published on 03.17.11

Looking dangerous and slightly out of character, but Nicole Richie’s vamp-up is something that’s pulled off nicely. Polished, but still borderline gothic, and that’s more than acceptable. I’ve been in full appreciation of some of her getups lately. Good on you, worldly lady.

Harper’s Bazaar China – Special Haute Couture

Published on 03.15.11

Some simply stunning material from Harper’s Bazaar China. Lush, wispy material, tiered colourful blocks, intricately crafted rosette-like fabric arrangements, and impossibly perfected imagery. No short of designerly display, designers like Elie Saab (of course, where credit should be paid for Mila Kunis’ amazing Oscar gown), Valentino Haute Couture, and Givenchy Couture. Thanks to Benjamin Kanerek […]

Blake Lively’s Chanel

Published on 03.11.11

Not that anyone’s really surprised that Blake Lively has been selected to be the face of Chanel (after all that gallivanting with Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld, it doesn’t take much imagination), but are we content? Is the buxom blondeshell necessarily what we all need to see from a spokesperson from the holy grail of […]

Adele’s a Gentlewoman

Published on 03.05.11

If you haven’t yet checked out 22 from Adele, you need to download / iTunes / buy the cd. It’s an impeccable and soulful collection that shows all signs of maturity you didn’t realize Adele could obtain more of. She’s featured on the cover of The Gentlewoman, a loved little trinket of UK magazine gold.

Oh, Anne.

Published on 03.05.11

Anne Hathaway is a classic beauty – and what classic beauty host for the 2011 Oscars could refute the opportunity to wear seven stunning outfits. While some were shinier than others, I’d have to say that all need to be showcased in their magnificent glory. My favourites: The Givenchy Haute Couture bustier dress paired with […]

Lela Rose for Payless

Published on 03.02.11

It’s Lela Rose for Payless on the runways from NYFW F/W 2011. Some stunning geometric block colours swirling around in this collective (albeit it being only three photos, hardly a collection). It’s so much whimsy that it has me near whimpering for a chance to see them in person (and on my feet). Some with […]

RAW Magazine with Gemma Arterton

Published on 03.01.11

Gemma Arterton is the new face of RAW Magazine (largely misleading title – nothing near the subject of veganism or dieting. ahem). In any case, she’s taking the role of a Bond Girl as part of their new campaigns. Here’s the snip of the Q&A that G-Star Raw did, after the jump.

Taylor Momsen for John Galliano

Published on 02.23.11

While this is a watch from awhile back, thinking it’s worth a share now and again. Taylor Momsen’s “The Pretty Reckless” has been on loop via my iPod Touch, and a tribute to the girl with the throaty voice was in store. Not convinced that this is a fragrance that I would be antsy for, […]
