What is this, an eighties diva revival? First Whitney on X-Factor, then the news that Chaka Khan has been photographed by Aitken Jolly for the Christmas Evans campaign. Evans, I salute your style. My mole-in-the-know tells me that she was fab and loved all the purple and black pieces, the leopard-print mac and the shoulder-grazing earrings. The best bit was when she started warbling Beyonce tunes at the end of the shoot, “everybody had goose bumps, it was amazing! ” Jealous, much?
I do think Chaka looks amazing in the pics although if I’d been art directing I would have added some snazzy Sophy Robson talons. Anyway, until the campaign launches (16th Nov) I’ll leave you with this (check out the oh-so-this-season thigh boots)…

I saw her on morning telly a few weeks ago and good god she was shoehorned into this corset. It was completely impressive! I got some new found respect for her for that!
