Immortalised by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, I was reminded of the Chignon while sorting through my books and finding this gorgeous image in Jerry Schatzberg’s Paris 1962. Perfect!
Bless Vogue! With their amalgamation of the Style.com site comes some wonderful trips down memory lane, with collections dating back to 1991 – from the years of the supermodel domination to the simplicity of the early nineties; from the slick Tom Ford glamour of the the 00s to the buff Brazilian bodies just a couple of years later. Just a word of caution – pencil out a whole morning for this little peruse – as once you start you can’t […]

But what better way to start the New Year than with an injection of culture? If you’re in London there is only one weekend left to see the Horst exhibition at the V&A and it’s absolutely beautiful – so […]
