Kirsten Owen in no make-up make-up, smiling and having a cheeky fag on the cover of Vogue Italia. In a plain black jumper. No coverlines. Just fantastic, no? (from September 1997, by Steven Meisel…)

From the vaults: Anna Wintour by Ellen von Unwerth

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

What a great find these photos are! They’re by Ellen von Unwerth from Interview magazine 1993, unearthed from a ring binder of goodies that I’m glad I never threw away. The photo of Anna with a (pre-Starbucks?) paper coffee cup surely epitomises the ambition of every long suffering intern that ever slaved over ‘returns’, dreaming of her Devil Wears Prada moment and the one below of Anna sharing a joke with Hamish and Camilla proves that – yes! – the Chanel sunnies stay on at all times… Continue reading

From the vaults: My Vivienne Westwood Pop Swatch

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I unearthed this old vintage Vivienne Westwood Swatch from my archive (AKA a dusty trunk in the bedroom) yesterday to photograph it for a project. When I mentioned it on Twitter it created quite the buzz, possibly because I discovered people are now listing ir for £300+ on Ebay. My watch probably cost about £50 twenty years ago which I guess was still a lot of money ‘in them days’. But I would never sell it.
