Burgundy outfit
I may have a love for burgundy lipstick and burgundy laptops (though it runs at a snails pace), but I have only one burgundy ensemble in my entire wardrobe. On the hunt for new pieces, I compiled the outfit above.

Beautiful textures, a mix of sugary sweet and warm tones, and a lace collar to peep out from one of Martina Spetlova’s most beautiful jackets. With so much going on, an outfit like this begs for super-straight hair tucked behind the ears.

Shop The Look:
Alexander Wang Nikola heels
Pastel colour block satchel
Martina Spetlova patchwork jacket
Lace detail denim shirt
Velvet skater skirt
Bed Head Control Freak Defrizz & Smooth Serum

Not going to lie, guys and dolls – I’m feeling a little bit like David Bowie right now.

Fashioning yourself some “Alexander Wang by Linda Farrow-esque” pointed cat eye sunglasses have that effect, I suppose. I doubt you’ll be seeing my eyeballs for a while.

A/W 2012 was one of my favourite ‘model seasons’ to date. Mixed in with the supers were a plethora of up-and-coming beauties: from Zuzanna Bijoch (above) to the i-D cover model Lina Zhang, there was a lot of fabulous werk happening in New York, London, Paris and Milan. One model even walked 73 shows! (See below)

  • So, remember when Kate Moss‘ little sister was causing some “Hey, look! She’s beautiful, too!” commotion when Kate’s wedding photos were released? Well, now she’s a model. See: 13-year-old Lottie Moss, above. (Photos by Andrea Carter Bowman).

  • Well this is interesante! Moda Operandi is becoming a serious force to be reckoned with, as they have just announced the hiring/pillaging of Taylor Tomasi Hill filling the role of MO’s artistic director.

  • Apparently, Marc Jacobs is no longer the name-of-the-moment in regards to taking over John Galliano at Dior. As Jacobs insisted on taking his Louis Vuitton team with him to Dior – which would leave Vuitton pretty helpless – if he were to make the move, he has been removed from talks. The position still remains open, and I still believe if Riccardo Tisci was to shake his brand loyalty, it would be his in a hot second.

  • Look how super-dupily-smoking-hot Demi Lovato looked on the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards red carpet! In a very un-Disney move, she wore a berry-coloured Roland Mouret Compeyson zip-front gown, made of stretch-crepe and actually worn back-to-front.

    By turning the plunging back into a plunging neckline, employing some major curls, and bronzing to the high heavens, she has made the look – impressively – her own. Style headed in the right direction, Miss Lovato.

  • When pressed for their comments regarding Madonna’s foray into further sectors of the fashion industry:

    “Maybe next season, we should sing a song.”

  • This week in Milan? Giorgio Armani wished he could “have a fresh start as an architect”; not too off-topic, considering he just opened his latest luxury hotel in the fashion capital, and announced plans to open others in London, Paris and New York.

  • Lily Cole, everyone’s favourite red-haired model-turned-actress (ok..so she’s the only one), has a cameo role in the forthcoming movie “Snow White & the Huntsman“. If you want to spot her in the trailer, look for the girl being obliterated by Charlize Theron. Poor lil beauty.

  • BIG NEWS! Five months after the brand was acquired by private equity firm Labelux, Jimmy Choo is losing co-founder and chief creative officer Tamara Mellon! Not only Tamara, but also the company’s current CEO, Joshua Shulman. Considering Labelux paid $800 million for brand ownership, I doubt they are planning to live on the streets, but it does raise questions regarding motive for both of the talented fashion figures to leave.
  • Proenza Schouler CFDA

    Though all of the talent nominated were more than deserving to leave the 2011 CFDA Awards with tropy in hand, I could not be happier with last night’s results. What a perfect group. (Each category’s winner is in bold.)
