Model magic

Now I know I have already blogged about The Model Agency but I completely take back what I said in my previous blog about India being the agencys best new face. After watching last night she stupidly missed a skype session with MARIO TESTINO. (Yes really) because of 'mis-communication'. Im sorry but EXCUSE ME!?

I have never seen a young girl thats been thrown into such an amazing life be so un grateful. She came home from New York fashion week, decided to quit modelling and missed the chance to talk to one of the worlds best photographers because she got told she couldnt put on weight. Shes a model....shes isnt allowed to put on weight!


Along came Leomie Anderson.
The one they thought would want to come home crying from New York and wouldnt flourish in the industry......last night she was walking for Marc Jacobs. Flying from London to Paris and being escorted to the bathroom to prevent agencies sweet talking her. Talk about high flying.

Shes also been referred to in th…

Princess Diana

Princess Diana was always questioned by the public. People knew she was stuck in an un happy marriage to a man she never truly loved. The public appeared to love her and the royals seemed to hate her. But all along in her un certain life Diana was always seen as a perfect mother and perfect style icon. Nowadays she doesn't influence the way young women dress but she is always referred back to as a classic beauty and style icon of her time. 

And of course her one style statement that is still making headlines today. Her beautiful engagement ring.

She is someone to never be forgotten.

Girly at it's best.....

Diane von Furstenberg. Furstenberg is the epitome of a designer for girly girls. She produces endless streams of beautiful floral clothes and amazing bags making her collections perfect of the typical girl. She is also responsible for pushing Whitney Port into her career of styling. Being a brief star of The City, Furstenberg was seen giving Whitney a heart to heart. Now I know it was because she was upset and everything but a heart to heart with one of the worlds best designers is a heart to heart I would LOVE. Her advice?  "The most important relationship you have is the relationship with yourself"
She obviously follows this as all of her passion goes into her stunning designs. 
Once again, my purse cries.

I would quite happily have all of these in my life.  BUT This outfit that has been styled on net-a-porter is a must have! Its a perfect mix of geek chic and classic style. I WANT.

Feet in the red

I read the most brilliant and true to fashion story today! Christian Louboutin has stated that when he designs his beautiful red soled shoes he doesn't think about comfort. He described his shoes as when people describe relationships as 'Well, we're not really in love, but we're in a comfortable relationship.'  He believes that comfortable is the worst word to be used. It is possible to be too comfortable. 

Looking at these new season spike shoes his description of his ideal woman to wear his shoes is a strong professional business woman. Highlighting why women such as Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker are worshippers of his designs.



Never mind I'll find someone like you.....

Nobody can quite capture the true feelings that Adele does in her songs. Watching every performance she does the audience and sometime Adele herself are close to tears. She is an inspiration.

I heard that you're settled down,
That you found a girl and you're married now,
I heard that your dreams came true,
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you,
Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light,

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it,
I had hoped you'd see my face,
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over,

Never mind, I'll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too,
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,"




Burberry Beauty

I'm not a Harry Potter fan and I am extremely jealous of the crazy amount of money the stars of it made. I mean they're MY age!! Anyway' I think the one thing about this group of young money makers is Emma Watson. She has morphed and grown from a long hair geek to a pixie classic, style princess!

She has been the face of Burberry and is draped in Chanel in her evening and casual clothes. She is a prime example of being able to portray true style with the simple black skinny jeans and striped t-shirt. Her hair cut swept the country when she snipped her long locks to elf cuts. She truly is a Burberry beauty.

"Women dress alike all over the world: they dress to be annoying to other women."



Final touch

Everybody loves the final touches of accessories. Looking through the current trends accessories are taking over outfits and the designers are producing gorgeous pieces. These are my favourite designer gems....the perfect frosting to the luxury cake!
Roberto Cavalli  Dannijo Lanvin Aurelie Bidermann Nixon
However. Looking at the prices of these (I wont tell you because its too heartbreaking) I was comparing my recent buys from the high street and was quite impressed by some of the similarities.
Topshop Asos
I think looking at these accessories from the high street if you spend enough time browsing the internet or the shops you will find pieces that resemble the qualities of designer. Olivia Palermo would be proud.

Ann - credible

Ann Ward looks AMAZING in her Vogue Italia shoot! She was such a worthy winner!



Does heart break make for a big break?

When you look back over time, its easy to question whether people in love really give everything their all? I mean look at people like Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock. They had two of the most idolised relationships in America and what happened to them? They were heartbroken and let down yet they didnt spend their time upset or regretting anything, they spent their time winning Oscars and Grammys. 

So is it true to say that being knocked down is just a step to rebuild yourself as a better person?

Even in movies, the film focuses on one heartbroken person re building their lives. They focus on fate. If someone is meant to be with someone else, fate will deal with it. I personally dont believe in fate. I believe that everyone chooses to do what they do and they choose this knowing the circumstances facing them at the end. If you love someone, you love them. If you dont, you dont. No ifs buts or maybes about it.

I have once again fallen head over heels in love with every item of clothing tht Alexa Chung wears. How does she manage to look SO stylish and always SO comfortable and cool?! It is almost like shes a magnet to fashion and clothes fly off the catwalk onto her in a perfect way!

Look at those beautiful shoes. Dolly shoes go ever so stylish with her!

My favourite look? Skirts and flats, skinnies and macs and high waisted shorts and blazers. But why can I not look like this? She really is the epitomy of true style and class....effortless.
