House of Harlow – we cannot wait to see Nic’s style expressed!

October 25, 2008

Nicole Richie’s Bling … “The collection is targeted at girls in their teens to women in their 30s who admire her and the prices range from $30 to $150. Mouawad is aiming to put Richie’s pieces, which feature fabric, leather, silk strings, chains, rivets, feathers and gold-plated metals.” The jewelry is said to be influenced by Nicole’s love of the 60s and 70s.  (Wonder if her previous stylist – Rachel Zoe – had anything to do with that as she loves that era) The collection will debut in the new Kitson store on Melrose when it opens in November and on ShopKitson.com. This gold-plated sundial ring with leather (pictured) was inspired by “African jewelry”, which is super beautiful and bang on trend for this seasons look. Can’t wait for more and to start shopping and wearing.

    October 19, 2008

    In September 2005, things were going well for supermodel Kate Moss.

    She was being courted by Swedish high street chain H&M and she had already signed a deal to advertise a clothing range by her friend, designer Stella McCartney, for the same company.

    But then the ‘Cocaine Kate’ story broke.

    A grainy video, secretly shot at a recording session for Babyshambles, the band fronted by her then boyfriend Pete Doherty, appeared to show her preparing and then snorting cocaine.

    Both H&M deals were promptly withdrawn.

    Kate’s contract as the face of Coco Mademoiselle perfume was due to expire that October and Chanel decided not to renew it.

    Burberry cancelled a new campaign with her. As more brands called off lucrative deals, she was advised to take action.

    A week after the scandal, her model agency Storm issued a statement from Kate saying: ‘I take full responsibility for my actions. I also accept that there are various personal issues that I need to address and have started taking the difficult, yet necessary, steps to resolve them.

    ‘I want to apologise to all of the people I have let down because of my behaviour, which has reflected badly on my family, friends, co-workers, business associates and others. I am trying to be positive, and the support and love I have received are invaluable.’ (more…)

    Jolie wears Michael Kors sunglasses during family shoot!

    October 19, 2008

     

    This image is just one of several taken by doting dad Brad Pitt for an intimate portrait of the couple’s family life of Jolie and the kids.

    Brad has made his photography debut shooting his seven favourite things in the world – Angelina and their six children – for America’s W magazine.

    The publication (Wmag) commissioned Brad to do the photos – which accompanied a revealing interview by the Oscar-winning actress – at the couple’s rented home in the south of France.

    Taken just seven weeks after the birth of the couple’s twins Knox and Vivienne, Angelina is a picture of contentment as she enthuses about the joys of parenthood.

    Using no-longer-produced Kodak Tech Pan film specially flown in Tel Aviv, Brad captured the real family life of the Jolie-Pitt clan in black or white.

    In one astonishingly intimate shot, Angelina gazes into the camera while breast-feeding one of the couple’s twins.

    With her hair flowing naturally over her shoulder, a tiny hand is seen clutching Angelina’s breasts as they feed.

    And in another revelation Angelina Jolie let slip to a New York times reporter that it would be cool for the kids to see the movie in which mom and dad feel in love when referring to Mr & Mrs Smith, at least for Jennifer Aniston the true is finally out there and the denials are over.

    Jolie loves her Micheal Kors and wears it while out in NY earlier this year!

    April Boot at Bullfrogs A Bargain!!

    October 8, 2008

    Hi Fashionistas,

    All this talk of the credit crunch can drive us to depression and drink …

    Not to worry though I found a ray of light … this super hot boots from Bullfrogs (I know bullfrogs, but yes Bullfrogs) I snapped them up for a reasonable 39.99 and it was the last size 8! Fantastic…

    Just a thought but I usually just post the internet pic of my new purchases as it always looks better than my DIY shots. What are your thoughts should I snap my actual item or use the internet pics?

    Rock it out fashionista and never mind what anyone says you got fashion on your side!!
