face of forever 21

So American store, (and my guilty pleasure when i'm over there) Forever 21 is opening up in the UK on 12th Nov at Birmingham's Bullring. They have just revealed that the face of the British campaign is going to be daughter of Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon and model Yasmin, Amber Le Bon. This lady is pretty HOT. So count down begins here....will Britain like forever 21? Or will our ever competitive high street chew it up and spit it out? Time will tell.

i do enjoy cher's performances each week but it was nice to see her not rapping, gurning or doin that wide leg dance she enjoys so much. Loved this week plus shakespears sister rules.

Pam: Let's go to the ladies room and stare at ourselves in the mirror.

Pam from true blood = legend. Quick wit, dry insults and she's stunnin.

Pam: I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago

all halows eve

the night when all terrors come out to play...death becomes her, the addams family, mexican deaths festival babys and so much more...btw i LOVED the true blood's merlottes bar and grill tshirt!

freaks me out!

After seeing so much press on Willow Smith and hearing her track I was kinda intrigued to see her video, it turns out the Willow Smith Video whip my hair wasn't too easy to find. After soooooo many spoofs, including "cool whip my hair" lol. I found it and I loved the styling, the song pretty catchy and the attitude but then I realized this girl is 9!!!!!!!! wtf?!? Although there isnt anything that provocative there is definately something that's a bit 'wrong' about the whole thing. One of the 'fake' versions of the video was these two guys talking about how cool the video was and that 'give her a few years....that's all im sayin' SO WRONG!!! in a few years she'll still only be 13!!!!

miri's beauty secrets

Miri bee is a freind of mine who is a costume maker extraorinare, she is constantly working of various theatre productions making all manner of costumes. Along the way she has picked up loads of beauty tips. Miri recomended these three products as a staple for any ladies makeup bag.

1st) POWDER- dior skin, forever compact (she uses no.022) which i tested out and it really covers like a foundation, which i like as im lazy when it comes to make-up. It's retailed at £26.50 but refills are cheaper.

2nd) FOUNDATION dior skin, nude. Natural glow hydrating make up, this is good for evenings where you might want a bit more cover. Retails at £29

3rd) CONCEALER lancome, effacernes longuetenue, longlasting concealer. Aparently better than YSL touche eclat as it doesn't have a brush which soaks up half of the concealer so the Lancome lasts longer! retail price for this one is £19 and you can buy it in boots and get points on your card! Or do like Miri does and build up your points so that it pays for the concealer, perfect!

behind the scenes of the photoshoot

Taking pictures for a poster for super cool Bristol gay night Mutiny, Lora = photographer, me = stylist (although she doesnt need much styling) roxy = model.

sisterhood night

the players, Roxanne, Lora and Miri. Pizza and wine. p.s. forgive my drinky wine eyes! lol

new buy....

You know buy now i love a good dip dye so when I saw these bad boys I couldn't resist!

two camps...which are you?

So which of Autumns biggest camps have you migrated towards?....i think i'm more attracted to vampy, goth chic myself. But then again I do love the 1950's colours and clogs with sheepskin- hell fashion has no rules, mix it up init!

kellys look of the day- the craft

For all of you ladies, who like me, spent ages with my mates when I was 13 trying 'light as a feather, stiff as a board'. Kelly's look of the day theme- the craft. dress and jumper combo to be found here and here.

spring summer colours 2011

third in the installment

DIP DYE!! As you already know I LOVE alexander mcqueen but also I love the colours in these blue dip dyes, it makes me want to get out old t-shirts and anything else i can get my hands on and start dying them...but let's face it, this would end up in some hideous home-made clothes and probably dye all over my flat!

street style

by libertys, love the bag, love the cloak, love the fur tail trim love the mary janes, love love love

nail art

wah nails have kick started a new nail revolution, now Barry m have introduced a great new product which creates interesting nails every time, you put a bright base coat on your nails, then go over the top with the black instant nail effect polish and watch it shrink and crack before your eyes exposing the colour underneath, i NEED THIS in my life! Also what does everyone think about the stick on printed nail sheets you can buy in Topshop? they look a bit plastic to me.

kate moss's final range for Topshop

Kate Moss launches her final range in Topshop on Monday, she is to attend the launch from 7pm at the Oxford circus store. Her range this time includes jewelry and clothes, 'inspired' by her own wardrobe an in honor of this Oxford Circus are going to transfer on of their window displays into a replica of her bedroom fitted with her clothes and then there will be 7 days of Kate. Way to go out with a bang! But what is the reason for the final collection..? Kate and Sir Green both say that Kate hasn't got the time to create such big collections, Phillip G continued saying that it made sense to go forward with something smaller. This has all coincided with Philly G's daughter Chloe's new involvement in her dad's Topshop empire, is Chloe to be the new face of Topshop?...Who knows.
