So no award ceremony coverage on the blog this week, get ready at the weekend is the BAFTAs and the Grammy’s, this week for me has all been about prepping for London Fashion Week, catching up on New York Fashion Week shows, which started this week, transcribing interviews for my award season series, as well as having long lunches with friends – generally enjoying the calm before the storm and panicking slightly about my wardrobe options!!!!
Lots of updates on Fashionista Barbie this week – we’ve had fab covers from Kate Moss and Charlotte Free, a half-naked David Beckham, a regal Beyonce, as well as my interview with the lovely Jacqueline Durran, if you loved Anna Karenina then this will reveal the inspiration behind the gorgeous costumes.
Plus I posted a fab competition this morning, where one lucky reader will win a pair of tickets to London Fashion Weekend – it is easy to enter so if you love fashion, shopping, and more fashion then this is the prize for you.

So H&M’s new high-end line, & Other Stories might have a stupid name that isn’t social media savvy, but this video gives the first peak at the collection. I spy floor-length gown, Breton stripes, tailored pieces, gorgeous jewellery, a bag that I need in my collection, as well as a hot Barbie pink dress. I was a little on the fence, mainly because of the name, after seeing this I can’t wait!!!
Coming Soon – Mary Katrantzou for Current/Elliott:
