Anna Wintour Grace Coddington Candy Magazine
After the success of “The Devil Wears Prada” and “The September Issue“, Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington became targets of many spoofs and critics. The fashion industry is a behemoth playground of replication and criticism, which is why I was quite surprised to fall in love with Brett Lloyd‘s inspired-drag photography of the Vogue Ladies in Charge. What is the cause? Candy magazine: the outrageous publication that showcased a well-breasted James Franco plastered in makeup, and ‘Lady Gaga‘ using a male toilet cubicle. The shots, styling and Drag Queens are flawless; even the male version of the internet’s most controversial child fashion blogger, Tavi Gevinson. View Post

Versus MFW Runway Samantha Gradoville
The runway (or set) at Versus was a literal Versace playground – complete with swing set and slide. We all entered the School of Christopher Kane as the maestro tapped into his Glaswegian roots and mixed them with a mix of body-con and schoolgirl-in-skirt silhouettes. The femme pieces were toughened by tartan or neon prints. A certain Donatella must be overwhelmed by this one. View Post

PPQ LFW Runway
Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker do it well. Really well. PPQ has a top spot on my ‘must-sees’ every year and is always a playground for celebrity spotting. For their “Hassan” collection, everything was rock and roll in a beautiful way. There was a recurring, stunning print that was present on many pieces, as well as a lot of shape-aware cinching. This London Fashion Week, it was a sprinkling of fez hats that punctuated the collection. Paloma Faith was smirking from start to finish. Brava, guys. View Post
