It is no secret that I am completely obsessed with True Blood. While I truly don’t have the time, I religiously spend a hour of my week glued to the sweetly Southern and suck-tastic (you know, in a good way) HBO drama.
As a new addition to the cast, Deborah Ann Woll has been proving herself as vampire offspring Jessica Hamby. As a huge shift from her character, Deborah was shot by Giampaolo Sgura and now graces the pages of August 2010’s InStyle dressed in Womenswear Designer of the Year Marc Jacobs‘ fall line. It’s simplistic and incredibly chic.
The music video is completed and M.I.A. is looking amazing in a piece by Australian designer Nadia Napreychikov.
Directed by Hype Williams – the man behind Beyonce/Gaga’s Video Phone and all of Kanye West’s bests – it’s sure to be out of this world.
William Tempest is joining New York Fashion Week!
This obviously means we miss out on his spring/summer 2011 collection showcase in London Fashion Week (sad face!), but it is a great feat for the young designer.
He commented by telling Vogue UK, “Showing on-schedule in New York is a fantastic opportunity for me to present my collection to the press, buyers and stylists in the US. New York has such an amazing and positive energy and I can’t wait to show my collection there.”
“The US is a huge market,” he continued, “and I am really looking forward to working with my sales team to help develop the label over there – which showing in New York will give us the platform to do.”
Congratulations to this uber-talented man – I can’t wait to see his show!
Word has it, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss have been sipping on some Haterade.
The two were booked to shoot the cover of the September issue of i-D together, and were then informed that they were to be joined by Lady Gaga.
The Daily Mail reported, ‘Naomi and Kate refused to play second fiddle to Gaga and insisted on having their own retouching done, so they were all shot separately’.
Instead of the trio together, there will now be a special pull-out which will essentially feature three covers.
A fiver says Gaga gets the main.
UK Elle, UK Vogue and W seem to have a triplet thing going on for August.
It is quite a big deal for a designer to land a piece on the cover of any of these three mega-magazines, let alone all of them. The tangerine-coloured version of the Miu Miu dress is both worn by Eva Mendes (W) and Freja Beha Erichsen (Vogue). Lily Allen, however, wears a lilac lace version on the cover of Elle.
Someone at the PR offices of Miu Miu is getting a nice bonus this month.
