Category Archives: Spread Em
Strangely, it seems to have been quite some time since last sharing a fashion spread with you lovely blog readers. In all likeliness, I have simply been uninspired by all that the glossies have had to offer over the past few months. Until, of course, Grace Coddington wove her magic wand over this shoot for Vogue US‘ April 2013 issue. In ‘Window Dressing’, the legendary Peter Lindbergh snaps supermodel Carolyn Murphy and Tobey Maguire in a dramatic Alfred Hitchcock-inspired set which pays homage to his iconic film, Rear Window. The narrative and styling are simply impeccable.

OOF. I try not to harp on about it, but when it comes to fashion styling, I believe no-one beats Grace Coddington. Case in point number 736352829? “Eternal Optimist” from Vogue US’ March 2012 issue. The casting choice alone was phenomenal: we have Caroline Trentini, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Frida Gustavsson, and Aymeline Valade – all heavy hitters with a true transformational presence.
With Craig McDean on lens, Grace has pulled together a Fifties-inspired masterpiece without being contrived. Just look at that set design. Bow down. (more…)

The concept of “The Collections on IVC 2012” is simply brilliant. Anyone who does anything similar from this day forward will be sidelined by the precedent inspiration of Vogue Italia‘s January 2012 edition.
The spread kicks off with a nonchalant traipse of Alexander McQueen‘s S/S 2012 best and ends with Natasha Poly in Dolce & Gabbana (Poly and Gabbana are like PB&J, to me). QVC-styled by Karl Templer and photographed by Steven Meisel, the model cast is incredible in itself; Daria Strokous, Caroline Trentini, Joan Smalls, Sigrid Agren, Karlie Kloss, Natasha Poly, and Gertrud Hegelund. Mix in some Burberry with Jen Kao, and some Louis Vuitton lemon candy couture? I’m sold. Find me my credit card. (more…)

“She came back from California
Lost her way alone in Georgia
Found she wanted something more
Like what she did before
And then she stumbled back into me”
- “Skinny Jeans“, The Bigger Lights
I am not what you would call a ‘jeans girl‘. If you have read my book, you know that – for me – dresses make up 95% of my wardrobe. For this reason, I have found it incredibly surprising that I have fallen in love with Citizens of Humanity Avedon skinny jeans.
Practically, they should not work for me. As a petite, curvy woman with a very different frame to a sample-size model, skinny jeans usually don’t flatter my body type. The Avedons, however, have a luxuriously-textured denim with a flattering stretch that wraps around my curves without feeling like a jegging. My legs are praising the opportunity to stay warm (aka covered) this winter!
