It is midnight! Relevance? Exactly one year ago, Lela London Dot Com was born. 970 blogs later (I kid you not), I am releasing my first book: She Said Style!

Stylist and fashion editor Lela London has spent her life creating and compiling tips and tricks that every woman wishes she knew. From a style icon-worthy dress sense to the secrets behind the flawless face, a priceless number of insider tidbitshave all been revealed in her first book: “She Said Style“.

As a wonderfully wise guide to fashion, beauty, and self-love, Lela’s wit and knowledge will excite you into tiers of panache and cool that are assumed to be reserved only for celebrities.

She Said Style is a must-have for every woman, being purposefully free of high-and-mighty fashion dictatorship. Every page is practical, customized and intimate in a way that will stick with you through the rest of your sartorial life. Every age, income, skin colour, personality and diversity is not only accounted for, but celebrated.

From closet inventories to trend-navigation techniques, body worship to body manipulation, and shopping secrets to bargain guides, there is enough here to elevate you to dream-like style savvy.

I literally could not wait to share this with you. This is my pride and joy, labour of love, (insert another cliche here) and I know all of you will adore it like I do!

Click here for a further look at She Said Style!

Lots and lots of besos,
Lela London

Stefan Eckert
German haute couture fashion label Stefan Eckert enlisted the help of motion-graphics designer Tim Jockel to create one of the most incredible fashion shows I’ve ever seen.

According to Jockel’s Vimeo account:

The question was how to communicate the philosophy behind the new collection of German “Haute Couture” fashion designer Stefan Eckert in a better way. The answer was the world’s first complete 3D holographic fashion show. I teamed up with director Florian Sigl to create the visual concept for the show and how to express the collection within this special medium as best as possible. After shooting with a high speed camera I did all stages of post production, from 3D to motion graphics to compositing.
The result was one of the biggest holographic projections ever which creates a complete optical illusion and breaks the rules of time and space on stage.

Agyness Deyn James Franco Elle
This is so wonderfully strange. Firstly, we have the low-key return of Agyness Deyn in the July issue of Elle, pulling out the Rebel Without a Cause look. Not only did she model for “Chateau Dreams“, but she styled it. And well, as long as we’re letting the model be the stylist, why not let James Franco be the photographer? Yes. Pot-smoking, arm-chopping, Golden Globe-winning actor James Franco.

You would never have guessed, eh? I adore this spread. What do you think? View Full Post

AKB48
The girl in the middle of the photo above is pretty flawless, isn’t she? If you don’t already recognise her, let me introduce you to sixteen-year-old Aimi Eguchi – the 7th member of Japanese Pop band AKB48.

Hold your fan letters, though – she’s not real. It has just been revealed that the beauty is actually a CGI composite of various features of six existing members of the girl group. We’re talking eyes by Atsuko Maeda, nose by Tomomi Itano, mouth by Mariko Shinoda, hair and body by Yuko Oshima, outline by Minami Takahashi, and eyebrows by Mayu Watanabe. Watch how they did it in the video below.

Welcome to the future.
