Calvin Klein – Steven Meisel Vid – Banned!!

January 31, 2009

Yea, this Calvin Klein ad has been doing the rounds since last week. However it’s been removed from YouTube so I’ll link this post to WWD where this controversial is still up.  We like the video for a number of reasons, cause it’s naught and it’s been banned by Youtube and US TV.

The video was shot by Steven Meisel, and features incredibly beautiful and thin models (Anna Maria Jagodzinska, Anna Selezneva, Edita Vilkeviciute, Natasha Poly and Naty Chabanenko according to models.com) bare apart from their Calvin Klein jeans.

According to WWD the video will screen in Europe uncensored and Calvin Klein is working on an edited version to screen on cable in the US.

I’m plugging this video as it is controversial and I want it on my blog but in realtiy, I think that the video looks like a porn audition…

Let me know your thoughts, beautiful people…

It’s the season for Suede!

January 24, 2009

Spring into a soft suede and make suede your friend. That’s our tip for spring. Suede is so comforting and comfortable and will see you through from these cold days and right on into summer.

I love the suede high platform boot at NewLook.co.uk, these boots are super sexy and so Louboutin. I popped down to New Look earlier this week and picked up a pair. These boots did not disappoint and at £30.00 a real bargain however I do need to say that I experienced terrible customer service. The sales assistants were incredibly rude and no box was given for the shoes. The shoes were placed in a New Look bag that was too small and not sufficient to protect the boots from the rain outside. I asked for an extra bag or bigger bag and the sales assistant refused, stating that it was not their policy. So it’s not your policy to provide sufficient packaging for the products you sell? Talk about unreasonable … My love of shoes and these boots saw me call for the manager this combined with a 10 minute wait resulted in me eventually getting a bag big enough to protect my shoes from rain. I give these shoes an 8 out of 10 and the sales assistants a dismal 1 out of 10. Completely unreasonable behavior from the sales assistant and manager and let’s just say we will not be featuring any of their products on this site in the near future.

I’d love to know your experiences of shopping?

Agyness Deyn unfashionable in NY!!

January 1, 2009

agness_deyn_wears_fur

Agyness Deyn one of the hottest models of 2008 and a trend setter of note, has been dubbed as ‘Cruella De Vil’ by the DailyMail. As the newspaper describes her as “Taking a leaf out of Cruella De Vil’s fashion book, Agyness opted for a white fur coat – reminiscent of the 101 Dalmatians.”

The 25 year old model, recently moved home with her boyfriend Albert Hammons, 28 (Strokes) seems to have settled into her new place as she walked her pet chihuahua and Dachshund.

The couple are rumoured to be engaged after she was photographed wearing a ring on her wedding finger earlier this year.

Agyness recently came under fire for posing in a fur coat when leaving a Christmas bash at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Which is rather ironic as she was later pictured wearing an anti-fur sticker on her top

“Former fish and chip shop employee Agyness has come a long way from her working class roots in the last two years.

She first appeared on the cover of US Vogue in May 2007 where she was chosen to take part in a spread featuring ‘the new crop of supermodels’.

Recently described as the ‘ultimate incarnation of the It-girl’, Agyness’s success is often attributed to an androgynous but sexy versatility that has catapulted her to fame.

Her meteoric rise to fame has even seen her made into a plastic doll, to her rumoured displeasure.”

I think she’s so plain and don’t find her an exciting model at all. She’s just someone that got extremely lucky! What are your thoughts.
