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 […]

“It’s not about rules; it’s about soul”, says Alina Preciado, proud owner of this fabulous loft in Brooklyn. A former textile warehouse, this abode is now littered with trinkets, art and sculpture from around the world, creating a perfect artistic fusion between the loft’s industrial past and it’s bohemian present. Trish, this one’s for you….. Images Mark Seelen & Chris A Dorsey
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!

These 1930’s nudes by Russian photographer Alexander Grinberg very nearly didn’t survive. As a celebrated photographer teaching at the Moscow Society of Photographers he was imprisoned in a labour camp for five years, during the Stalinist regime, for producing work described as “dangerous to society”. Fortunately for us his older brother hid the negatives and his beautiful images live on. Grinberg witnessed the Russian Revolution, the Civil War, two World Wars and the Stalinist repression. He died at the ripe old age of […]
There seem to be a lot of blogs out there with an emphasis on personal style right now. But ironically it sometimes feels like everyone looks the same. Closetvisit, however, has really grabbed my attention. Firstly, I’m happy to say that these are visits into real closets (and even happier to say that some are as chaotic as my own). Secondly, there’s a broad age spectrum and an even broader range of styles. Something for everyone no less. I’m totally hooked….
