I styled these pictures a few weeks ago for Boys By Girls with photographer Emma Miranda Moore and model Laurence Ainscough at Premier. We wanted to capture the feel of a visitor staying in an unfamiliar house and feeling slightly displaced. And maybe watched…! Laurence was brilliant fun and regaled us with his adventures as a student in Paris. I’ll be putting his interview up soon…

Flashback! Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton 1998

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s easy to forget that Marc Jacob’s early shows for Vuitton were much more pared back than what we see now. There are hardly any catwalk pictures online from that time but I absolutely love this video of the AW 1998 Louis Vuitton show (above), featuring Naomi Campbell, Kirsten Owen and a demure-looking Gisele.  Any of these looks would easily look current today.

London Fashion Week SS14: Day 4 highlights

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Christopher Kane is a hotter ticket than ever and some suggested there was evidence he’s been Kering-ed. Well, there were certainly a lot of entry-level sweatshirts on show, AKA the new product category that’s proved a winning formula for Kenzo and Givenchy. Along with the hologram dresses (above, what were they made of?) and revisited Princess Margaret pleat pieces, I was wowed by these epic applique pop art dresses. Just brilliant.

From the vaults: House of Style Model Conversation

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Oh! How fantastic is this ancient footage of the supers on MTV’s House of Style, which just resurfaced on District MTV? It’s Cindy Crawford talking to Naomi, Linda, Lauren, Christy and Beverly Johnson about getting scouted, making it in modelling and feminism. Plus – added bonuses! – cameos from Kate Moss, Polly Mellen and Anna Wintour and a young model in original grunge-wear on a go-see. (This footage is from the early 90s).

Watch it here and thank me later…

Remembering Laura Ashley

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Now here’s a most excellent Facebook campaign for people of a certain age. To commemorate its 60th anniversary, Laura Ashley has created the Laura Ashley Memories Facebook Campaign, inviting fans to share pictures and memories of their favourite Laura Ashley smock/curtains/wedding dress/tea cosy/whatever. This is such a simple, sweet idea from a heritage brand with a truly connected fan base – people really do have a fondness for their Laura Ashley.

Those who share their photos and memories can potentially win a £1000 gift card and a tour of the London archive (now that’s a fabulous prize, no?). Here’s a couple of submissions already – the 80s is the most popular decade by far…

First look: Miss Vogue

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

**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

Glamour magazine: How Cara Reinvented Cool

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Much as I love digital, there’s still a buzz to be had from seeing my byline in print. Glamour magazine commissioned me to write a few words on Cara Delevingne, in which I tried to pinpoint the essence of her success. Conclusion? It’s a combo of everygirl personality plus a super-social media presence that her fans love to engage with. And from a brand point of view, rather like some uber-bloggers, Cara has the cash factor – when she wears something, it sells. (As streetwear brand Hardware LDN told me, “when Cara was spotted wearing Hardwear LDN at London Fashion Week, we sold 200 units within the hour”.) No wonder she gets repeat-booked by brands like DKNY, Chanel and Burberry – it’s all about the ROI, baby!

Just dropped: Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens SS13

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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).

LFW trend report AW13: Model mania at Topshop and Burberry

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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.

Vogue February – Angelo Pennetta shoots the Brit girls

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

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?
