Vogue Today I’m Wearing picks Malaika Firth

A few years ago I used to be obsessed with Vogue’s online feature Today I’m Wearing, I’ve not visited it for years because they had a short run of people I wasn’t that enamoured with.

But revisiting the feature now I’ve missed out on the likes of Alex Wek, Arizona Muse, Mira Duma, Poppy Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse just to name a few recent ones.

And as I was on Vogue earlier today I saw my favourite new model Malaika Firth. She appeared in easily 50+ shows during fashion month back in February from Topshop, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana to H&M, Lanvin and Louis Vuitton.

I love her off duty sporty model look, she’s British and scarily born in 1994. Meh.

“Tonight I’m taking my mum out for dinner so I’ve opted for my Y-3 heels. My style is quite casual so I’m wearing Rag and Bone jeans and my jumper is from Joseph. My friendship bracelets are from Daisy Jewellery and the bag is Michael Kors – I love this colour, it makes me look forward to the summer!”

“I have castings today so I’m collecting my book from the agency. My cropped tee and jeans are both from Topshop. I have heels in my bag but when I’m running around I usually wear my Doc Martins. Despite the sunshine it’s still not too warm so I have my Burberry blanket to keep me warm. It was a gift from last season’s show and I love the fact it has my initials embroided!”

“Today I am wearing this amazing Kate Spade shirt – love the car print!! I am going for a print clash with these Sandro shorts and shoes by Sophia Webster.”


The Oscars 2014: After parties

The main event was a bit of a letdown for me, there was some stand out dresses on The Oscars red carpet, but the celebrities really come out to play at the after parties.

As I mentioned in my Oscars red carpet round up, Kate Hudson managed to select another jaw-dropping gown to attend the Vanity Fair Oscars party wearing a black and nude Zuhair Murad Couture look.

Evan Rachel Wood chose an emerald green Elie Saab Couture dress that perfectly matched her complexion, she always looks best in green.

Emmy Rossum worked the green and cream carpet in a Monique Lhuillier confection, the perfect princess moment.

Anna Kendrick shed her edgy red carpet J.Mendel dress for a super sexy second skin Atelier Versace, I never would have thought she could pull something like this off but she definitely did.

There were so many gorgeous models there, that it’s hard to pick a favourite. Karlie Kloss worked sexy glamour with the most revealing of cutouts without looking trashy, Chanel Iman wore an electric blue glittery Zuhair Murad also with daring cutouts, absolutely adored Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s pale blue Cushnie et Ochs dress, Miranda Kerr obviously looked every inch the hot starlet in Kaufmanfranco and Karolina Kurkova worked the supermodel glamazon look in white lace Elie Saab Couture at Elton John’s Oscar Viewing Party.

When I first saw Diane Kruger‘s Valentino Couture dress, I was a bit unsure, but the more I looked at it the more I loved it. The lace is beyond perfection, and I loved the braided up do and of course her flawless make up. Not forgetting to mention her best accessory, Joshua Jackson.

I can’t go without mentioning how good Ellen Page looked. She absolutely rocked her Saint Laurent head-to-toe outfit, she shone and was clearly comfortable and sexy and all the better for it.

Here’s the best of the rest:

Mollie King snaps up Randy Gandy

My nickname for the hot male model has stuck, David Gandy is one fine male specimen and I definitely would have put him with a Hollywood A-list superstar or a Victoria’s Secret model for sure not a sugary pop star and 1/5 of The Saturdays. I know it’s been public knowledge for a while but I forgot to write about it what with the Royal Wedding happening and everything inbetween.

Mollie King the cute blonde one from The Saturdays has bagged herself a male supermodel, never in a million years would I have thought these two would step out together but would you have it the couple have been spotted out together quite a few times over the past month cementing their relationship status as the hot new thing in town. She’s one lucky gal, after reading his blog he comes across as a genuinely nice, clever and smart guy, how perfect.

Now I’m going to keep an eye on the transformation that is sure to follow in Mollie, less nights out with the girls more swanky A-list bashes. Now she has the key to the red carpet and not the one of a tacky television awards show but one to the fashion world where I’m sure any girl would love to be. No more high street for Ms King more like his favourite label D&G or a bit of Ralph Lauren if Randy points her in the right direction. Check out this sweet video of the two talking to Marie Claire at the Inspire & Mentor party.

I'm not jealous at all...


Rachel Bilson enjoys a Magnum

I heard Rachel Bilson was working with Karl Lagerfeld a couple of months ago, I was beyond excited, what could it be about why her why him? And so I find out that Magnum ice cream are launching in the US (who knew they weren’t a global brand already?) and enlisted Karl Lagerfeld to direct a series of short films with Rachel Bilson starring and also featuring his favourite boytoy model Baptiste Giabiconi to promote them. I wonder how much Karl is getting paid for that, he recently admitted to W Magazine that he doesn’t even like ice cream or chocolate for that matter and claims that he hasn’t eaten sugar for 10 years and that he “eats with [his] nose”. WHAT?!

The first film was released at the Tribeca Film Festival entitled Photo Mood. We see a starlet (Bilson) being directed by a demanding photographer (Giabiconi) when a Magnum ice cream catches her eye, she stops the shoot to grab one out of the freezer that they just happen to have on set. It’s odd to say the least, there is no point to the ice cream, and no relation to what the shoot is about which usually happens when ad campaigns like this happen. Ah well, hopefully the next two will be better, Art Class and Applause are yet to be released.

Also today Karl was pictured further promoting Magnum by designing a Paris hotel room made entirely out of Belgian chocolate (the stuff he doesn’t like, yes) and even the model was edible… And as Heat rightly pointed out it looks more like Joey Essex than Baptiste Giabiconi who it was supposed to be. REEM.

Paris Haute Couture 2011

Normally I don’t pay attention to haute couture, it’s too extravagant and over the top, but this year designers have gone minimal, intricate and beautiful (well mostly). I’ve picked my favourites from the designers that have showcased their couture designs so far, Alexis Mabille, Armani Prive, Bouchra Jarrar, Chanel, Christian Dior, Elie Saab, GivenchyJean Paul Gaultier and Valentino.

There are plenty of options for future award shows, especially from the amazingly talented Elie Saab. And I absolutely adore the Chanel sequin leggings, what’s not to love?

The sexual being that is Tom Ford…

Just a sneak peek of that handsome face.

…has guest edited French Vogue for the Dec/Jan issue.

OMFG, why is he sooo sexy. And yet, sooo gay? Unfair really.

I thought it was Lara Stone at first on the cover, but apparently it’s 15-year old model Daphne Groeneveld. She is one lucky puppy.
