Oh British Vogue! You have excelled yourself. Well done. A very nice letter shall be sent home with you tonight to share with your parents. I expect it might even make the fridge, yes, the work you have done really is that good. Greatly improved. Please continue in this new wave of excellence. And employ Mert & Marcus to shoot more of your covers please.
First things first, Emma Stone once again looked immense, this time in Spring/Summer 2012 Gucci. The outfit’s perfectly chosen for starters, it’s the right side of understated and just every single right side of cool that there actually is. Ah, Emma.
Miley Cyrus also happens to get herself a little mention, look at her in that David Koma dress?! Who knew Miley Cyrus could look so classy? Who knew Miley Cyrus could look so sleek? But more importantly who knew David Koma would loan a dress to Miley Cyrus?
Jennifer Lopez (or J-Lo as I still prefer her to be named) is a bit of a guilty style pleasure of mine. She’s so over the top, over worked, over va-va-voomed… but immense because of ALL of that. Sometimes however she just nails it. Absolutely nails it. And no-one does movie star glamour like our Jennifer. It’s actually kind of funny that the piece that’s giving her such a movie star look comes from The Row. Beautiful coat, and completes a great little look from our favourite girl from da block. (Yup. I said ‘da’. I’m well fly.)
Great shape, great colour, great detailing.
And in other news, if you like Emma’s leopard print box bag here, head over to
Karen Millen and check out their lethally studded leopard print number. They’re like two peas in a very leopardy pod.
The subject of the cover is a another bit of a shocker too, Rooney Mara – star of the upcoming US version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Two of the shots from her editorial are really quite beautiful, and incredibly fresh for Mert & Marcus.
(NB : This is sarcasm. They love a girl doing an Ophelia. Repetitive beauty.)
While attending this afternoon’s Jaeger London show I was lucky enough to clap eyes on and speak to one of fashion’s most stylish women, Olivia Palermo. (I say speak to, I blurted out ‘Can I take a picture?!’ to which she responded ‘Of course. I like that you asked!’ Which of course made me turn into a whimpering wreck. Either way I’m clinging onto that memory okay?) Being seated beside Brix Smith Start didn’t seem to suit her too well, her Whistles white tuxedo jacket however, did. Love her or hate her (it’s probably easy to hate her with how she came across on The City in all fairness) but this is one girl who just gets it, and knows how to dress.
