The best thing about this Bruce Weber for Selfridges Christmas video isn’t the eclectic cast of animals, kids and fabulistas, or the signature jazzy soundtrack, or Weber’s magical feel-good fantasy world that makes you want to climb into the screen and stay there. No, for me it’s the fact that you (meaning I) can buy one of the Bruce Weber tees for a mere £20 at Selfridges Wonder Room with all proceeds going to Kids Company.
Just seen these ad images for the Maison Martin Margiela X H&M collection on KarlIsMyUnkle. Love them, especially the choice of models – Margiela has always been consistent is using an interesting, diverse mix of models. I’m sure this is London’s favourite casting agent Sarah Murray third down and Margiela favourite, Marie Sophie Wilson fourth down…

It’s not often I post photos of me on this site because it’s not that kind of blog but I’m making an exception on this occasion because I know people like to see exactly who is spouting all this information and opinion every once in a while. Oh who am I kidding, I’ve been Burberry-ed! Continue reading →
London’s gearing up for London Fashion Week but I looked ahead to Paris Fashion Week, and specifically, Yves Saint Laurent for my Glamour Style Tribe blog. Read it here…
A new season equals a new fragrance, or so the glossies would have us believe. Actually I’ve been using Jo Malone London’s new Blackberry & Bay cologne since the press launch in May, when invitees were gathered in a W1 square for a breakfast picnic. Of course, it was freezing so we were swaddled under cashmere shawls, hot water bottles and outdoor heaters in typical attention-to-every-detail beauty launch style. Continue reading →
“It’s not about fabulous anymore. It’s about having 500 friends on Facebook and the same American Apparel outfit to wear to a festival. It was kind of the opposite then. Freak was the preferred genre.”
Anna Sui in Guy Trebay’s excellent New York Times piece on Antonio Lopez
Other things I learnt:
Rizzoli is publishing the monograph, Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex & Disco by Mauricio and Roger Padilha next week
The next major MAC make-up campaign will be inspired by Lopez’ illustrations and coterie of fabulous friends
Bill Cunningham and Antonio Lopez were BFFs and studio neighbours
Pat Cleveland is working on her memoir
…and Grandmaster Flash posed on it?

Beauty bits: Aerin, BeautyMart, Into The Gloss, Chanel, Shu Uemura, By Terry, Teen Vogue, Dior Couture, confessions of a Photoshopper
First look at Aerin Lauder’s campaign imagery for the forthcoming AERIN beauty-slash-lifestyle line (ETA August/September). Very commercial but that’s entirely expected. For more sneak peeks, check out the AERIN site where you can view the product and read Aerin’s Goop-like musings on effortless entertaining and the like…
Chloe Sevigny’s the face of Miu Miu’s Aw12 campaign, making us nostalgic for the last time she posed for Miu Miu in 1996. I prefer the 1996 version; those flat planes of colour, sandals and slacks are suddenly looking quite contemporary and chanelling the vibe of Prada’s SS13 menswear collection. Will Miuccia take a cue from menswear for SS13 and deliver something similar for Miu Miu womenswear SS13?
