**SPOILER ALERT** Ding dong! The inaugural issue of Miss Vogue has been published and my verdict is in. First impressions: it looks like Teen Vogue! I was expecting a full-size issue and something thinner, so it’s good to see a perfect-bound spine. I was totally not surprised to see Cara on the cover – I expected her or Edie (P.S, thank you Vogue for putting a model on the cover). Continue reading
Just arrived at Dr Martens… this new collection by Agyness Deyn. This time, her inspiration was Harajuku, hence the chunky naive sandals, Minnie Mouse bows and loveheart motifs. I’m glad to see that Dr Martens has hit its stride in recent seasons, aligning itself with the modern heritage movement and successfully catering to old and new customers (the stores in Westfield Stratford and Carnaby Street are pitch perfect).

Being a catwalk model must be the best fun these days; you simply never know what you’re going to be asked to do. From Mulberry’s dogwalkers, to Matthew Williamson’s close-up Vine videos, to Topshop Unique’s model cams and Burberry’s #Beautybooth, there’s so much interactive fun to be had at the shows. Before I left for yesterday morning’s first show, I caught Topshop’s Google+ video of Cara Delevingne doing a circuit of the Topshop Unique runway with a vídeo cam stashed in her handbag.

Groups of girls are quite the thing for SS13 editorials and ad campaigns. Chanel has Stella Tennant, Ondria Hardin and Yumi Lambert; Balenciaga has Kremi Otashliyska, Sam Rollinson and Kirstin Liljegren, and did anyone else choke on their morning muffin at the sight of not two or three, but four girls in Chloe’s latest campaign?

Chanel, Scotland, tartan, kilts, twinsets… what’s not to love in the latest Chanel Métiers d’Art show at Linlithgow Palace in Edinburgh? I’ll admit I have a love-hate relationship with Chanel RTW but this ticked most of my ‘love’ boxes. In particular, Stella Tennant in the ultimate luxe twinset and Edie Campbell in argyle-patterned tights and plaid tam-o-shanter, not to mention Sam Mcknight’s phenomenal Elizabethan hair dos.

It’s not often you turn up on a shoot to find your model baking a cake, but that’s exactly what happened on our latest Models From Elsewhere shoot. 21-year old Marianna from M&P Models, has been in London for a year, fitting castings and shoots around her architecture studies. Originally from Poznan in Poland, she lives with a flatmate in King’s Cross where she can be found when not studying at Central St Martins nearby. Continue reading
I just clocked this Vogue Paris November cover. Well, I can’t tell whether it’s old or new. It’s got a slightly muted quality and the ‘girls’ are in standard ‘classic Vogue cover’ uniform of 501s and white shirt – a look we’ve seen a million times (and I personally never tire of). Daria, Stephanie and Lauren could all be in their 30s-40s and going by hair, make-up, styling, lighting, even the colour of the coverlines, this could be from any time between the late 80s and now. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Is it classic, or lazy and a bit predictable? I haven’t made my mind up but my instinct says it’s timeless and beautiful. What do you think?
