DOLL 1 1024x690

I love Remi Rebillard‘s work because he has the ability to translate a story into a beautiful work of art. Remi Rebillard sent me this amazing editorial called “Doll Story”. It is mind blowing, It brings the dolls of our childhood to life. It stars Kate Upton from IMG Models . The make up and hair was by Davide Calcinai with artist by by Timothy Priano.

Daisy Lowe designs swimwear for Peacocks

26 January 2011 No Comments

Daisy LoweSocialite and model, Daisy Lowe is adding designer to her resume. She is collaborating with fashion retailer, Peacocks to launch a collection of retro inspired swimwear which she will also model, for summer 2011.

‘Daisy Lowe for Peacocks’ follows five collections designed by her mother Pearl Lowe.

Her swinwear range will launch in selected Peacocks’ stores and online in May 2011.

The collection is inspired by French Riviera in the fifties, and iconic sex symbols, such as Sophia Loren and Bettie Page.

Daisy Lowe said:It was important from the start that my designs were accessible so my friends could afford them, which is why we’ve kept the collection under £18.  I’ve sought inspiration from the things I love, family holidays in Europe, iconic fifties pin ups and classic vintage shapes.”

We cant wait for the collection but I  think most of Daisy's friends could probably pay a lot more than £18 for a swimsuit.

Premier channel 4 the model agency

Get your Sky Plus Boxes set to record, The Model Agency, because this show could be our favourite guilty pleasure.

Premier Model Management have opened their doors to Channel 4 for a revealing, new, seven-part series on the modelling industry. The show gives a documentary style look at the one of London's Leading modelling agencies. "The show documents the high-octane world of The Model Agency, from Premier's booking desk to the scouts models, designers and photographers who pass through the doors, this series follows them all during the adrenaline-fuelled weeks of show season - in the office, at the fittings and on the catwalks of the Fashion Weeks in New York, Milan, Paris and, most crucially for this British agency, London." The series, coming soon to Channel 4, promises to give an intimate and revealing look at a very private world where youth, beauty and money rule, in an industry that is envied, scrutinised and criticised in equal measure. I can't wait for it.

Kate Moss

Kate Moss does animated Balmain video.

16 January 2011 No Comments

I remember sitting down with my photographer/friend, Gene Keigel and discussing the future of fashion photography. He said that video would be used more frequently used . Well, he was most definitely correct as Balmain has released a special video via Nowness. Kate Moss is the star of a 3 minute long, behind the scenes video for Balmain. Kate Moss writhes around to the sounds of Everglade by Antony and the Johnsons. The video is behind the scenes footage of Kate Moss' AW 2010 Balmain campaign which was shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. While Kate changes her pose her hair changes colour and animations by Jo Ratcliffe are displayed on screen. It’s a great way to spend the next 3 minutes of your life.

Tattoo artist, photographer, author, and reality TV star are all titles Kat Von D can boast on her CV, but after several makeup and fragrance collaborations with Sephora, Kat is moving from beauty to fashion and adding another title to the list; Fashion designer.

Yesterday Kat posted a sneak-peak of her eponymous upcoming Fall collection. Predictably, the collection is inspired by Kat's personal style with elements of punk and rockabilly fashion, but the pieces are still wearable and sophisticated, and not cheap looking. From these looks we can tell that the collection consists mostly of separates, including a military-inspired coat, embellished pencil skirt, cut-out and sheer-panel leggings, zip jackets and blazers and some casual tops.

Cheryl Cole is once again on the cover of Elle. The cover headline is almost identical to her cover for Vogue October 2010. In October  Vogue said Cheryl was having a "new start" and now in January Elle is hailing the rebirth of Cheryl Cole. Yes, Cheryl Cole has as many lives as a cat. Future suggestions for Cheryl Cole headlines include, "Starting over", "Starting over again", "my new lease on life", "Rising from the ashes", "Starting over again again"  etc......

River Island mens Spring Summer 2011 lookbook

03 January 2011 No Comments


Yesterday we showed you the womens lookbook for the River Island Spring Summer 2011 collection. Today, we give you a sneak peak at the River Island Mens 2011 collection. Hopefully we get a really warm Summer because the collection is full of shorts. The colour palette is mainly composed of neutral  tones with accents of blue in the form of denim. Lets hope for a warm summer because River Island's menswear is looking very strong for SS2011. I would wear every single piece from the lookbook, which is unusual for me as I am very picky when it comes to clothes. Hats off to River Island. Love this lookbook.

Jewellery was by Mikey London at Topshop and Butler And Wilson. Retouching by Joe McCormick. The shoot was styled by Che (me).
