Probably my favourite look from Leighton Meester as of late was the ensemble she wore to attend a screening of ‘The Woman Dress’. The film was a short, directed by Giada Colagrande, that was part of a series of films that explore women’s love affair with Miu Miu. Leighton’s Prada Spring/Summer 2012 dress was a divine choice for her shape, and an unexpected choice for a Miu Miu event.
The version she wore had a deeper plunge and an altered print to the runway version, but the lemon-coloured skirt was untouched. I think I actually prefer this bodice to the runway version.
For the beginning of Fashion Week, Leighton attended the amfAR New York Gala wearing a Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 dress. This dress was one of my favourites of the season, so I am ecstatic that Leighton ended up wearing it on the red carpet. Critics, however, seem to have quite a problem with her hair at this event.
A garment perhaps a little too fashion-forward for such soft, feminine curls? The Louis Vuitton sequined bag she carried was gorgeous, but I may have to agree, the hair and shoes weren’t as edgy as I would hope for with the styling of this dress.
On her way to Vera Wang’s show for Autumn/Winter 2012, Leighton wore a Stella McCartney A/W 2010 Coat, green printed Vera Wang V-Neck Dress, yellow Giuseppe Zanotti Cutout Suede Sandals, and the Bvlgari Serpenti handag. Street style at it’s best – the ‘girly curls’ really work here.
I am so happy! I hope you’re happy, too! If not – let Arthur Elgort‘s photoshoot for the September 2011 issue of Japanese Vogue make you happy! It is full of Giovanna Battaglia-styled Fall/Winter 2011 goodness from Burberry Prorsum, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Lanvin, Calvin Klein, Fendi and more. “In Love With The City” is street style at it’s most impressive. If that’s not enough to make you smile, then Karlie Kloss will surely do the trick. View Post
Elite model and Lela London favourite, Bambi Northwood Blyth, signed on to be the face of Free People‘s Pre-Fall 2011 lookbook and looks as bushy-browed and beautiful as ever. Note: the toy Bambi.
Also, I definitely prefer Free People’s creepers to Prada’s. This is a peculiar designer stance. You’ll still never catch me wearing them*.

As part promotion of the final cinematic chapter of Harry Potter – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 – there is quite a bit of Emma Watson in US Vogue‘s July 2011 issue (shot by Mario Testino). Her cover and spread are filled with the best of Fall/Winter 2011; Prada to Tom Ford, Aquilano.Rimondi, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, and many more.
The “Emma Watson’s New Day” photos are so breathtaking that I barely noticed the male models – Jeremy Irvine, Luke Treadaway, and Tom Hughes – were there.

Phew! Haven’t done a Behind The Camera for a while. I thought it was only fair, this time, to shine a little light on a dark corner of modelling: The Men’s Corner. While menswear seems to claw at the doors of high fashion, the models are enough reason to open said doors up. Case in point? 22-year-old French model Clement Chabernaud. All cheekbones, all man. His debut was at the Spring/Summer 2005 Dior Homme show in Paris, after which he gained ‘celebrity’ as the face of Jil Sander (who he has been walking for – opening and closing shows – ever since). This year, he also became the face of Prada and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Go on, get lost in his eyes.
