Totally in love with Massimo Dutti’s apres ski collection. But with the weather almost balmy in the UK, it might require a real visit to the slopes – what a shame! Next stop…. Verbier!
Denim inspiration can’t get any better than Current & Elliot’s “Denim Story“. The book, published by Rizzoli, features cut offs, boyfriends to bell-bottoms, dungarees to skinnies – it’s denim heaven! And if your a retro queen, never fear, there are some fabulous images of James Dean, Marilyn, Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot. The only thing missing is Nick Kamen in his boxers! (David Gandy take note, less is definitely more 😉 ) All photos by Hilary Walsh

Judging by this autumn’s editorials, hosiery is back! Overjoyed! – what a great way to update the wardrobe without disturbing the bank balance. You could take the Harper’s Bazaar route and opt for all sizes of fishnet from whale net to ringo hole (are we still talking about hosiery??) or even a risqué fishnet body stocking. Or you could take the more demure Vogue option of open work cable. The choice is yours! Photography: Harper’s Bazaar Sebastian Faena, Vogue […]

I’ve been dying to post this video of my fellow pushettes and I fire dancing at my friend Annia’s party, but the file refuses to download (grrr but weirdly happy to play on Facebook, what’s that about??) However Hedi Slimane’s recent Spring menswear collection has given me the perfect excuse to at least mention it. (And in the meantime I’ll be researching how to get this damn video thing going!) The brief for the party was “vintage festival. Us ladies […]
I went to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the Barbican yesterday and it was incredible. Funnily enough, my friend Jo and I had both been to see the Bond exhibition in the same exhibition space, and both of us said how off-putting the mannequins were. Just faceless black moulds of, what looked like, sponge. It was Bond for God’s sake – the great champion of glamazons. Well these mannequins were something else – they blinked, they talked and could […]

Love this photo shoot by Tom Craig for Porter Magazine. Very reminiscent of the photographs Patrick Lichfield took of Talitha Getty, the queen of Marrakesh kool in the early 70s: It was here where he [Yves Saint Laurent] met one of his muses, the ill-fated and impossibly beautiful Talitha Getty (supposedly the only woman Rudolf Nureyev was ever attracted to). Her opulent Moroccan palace, which she shared with her oil heir husband was the setting for some of the decade’s most […]

Nobody did glamour like Anita Ekberg. Like a slinky silver fox she sashayed her way across the screen. Never will a sweetheart bust-line ever look so good!
