I have a love-hate affair with my fringe, when cut well I adore it, when cut badly or getting too long I despise it – but seeing Chloé’s stunning spring/summer 2014 campaign makes me realise how much I do love fringes.
The care-free seventies feel to this ‘last weekend of summer’ campaign is perfection, not only do I wish I was a Chloé girl like Lou Doillon and Julia Stegner, I also need to know the key to their impeccable bangs.
Each shot is amazing, I love the contrast between the blonde and brunette styles, but my favourite shot has to be how their fringes sit behind those oversized sunglasses – now if only I could look as chic with my out-of-control hair!!!
Do you have a love-hate affair with your fringe?

Not only is the concept cute, the styling of Cara by Edward Enninful is the most demure I have ever seen her look, she looks every inch the archetypal English rose – however I do think the animals are grabbing most of the attention!!!
I do love a charming English tea party, but I think I adore Mulberry’s take even more, with a white pony, a Jack Russell, a Patterdale Terrier, a Great Dane, a pelican and two cockatoos, apparently called Archie and Spud taking centre stage – it just shows that even for a model like Cara it is hard to compete with gorgeous animals – especially the pony, Dusty isn’t she just a darling.
I really do think that Tim Walker and Mulberry is a match made in heaven – I love this cute and quirky ad campaign.
Are you a fan of Cara’s new Mulberry campaign?

Who: Lady Gaga
Where: At the 2013 American Music Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California
Wearing: A chiffon lilac Versace gown from the spring/summer 2014 collection, assessorised with a body chain with two silver medusa medallions at the front and lilac Versace heels
Verdict: Just hours before her AMA red carpet appearance, Lady Gaga was named the face of Versace’s SS14 campaign with an ad shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, so in true Gaga style she decided to bring that campaign to life by wearing a very similar look.
Of course, because it is Gaga there was also a white mechanical horse, which was operated by two people underneath and she rode onto the red carpet with her blonde locks flowing doing her best damsel in distress.
I love the campaign image, I love the lilac colour to the gown and the cut-outs, and I am so pleased that she went for a longer style on the red carpet. But I think my favourite thing about this look has to be the styling of the body chain with two silver medusa medallions – that is just pure Versace and works perfectly.
Lady Gaga was apparently named the new face of the Italian fashion house because she is part of the family, anyone else think it is because she is morphing into Donatella?
What do you think of Lady Gaga’s latest red carpet look? Are you a fan of her Versace platinum blonde locks?

I love whimsical, I love drama, and I adore an edgy fairytale theme. The autumn/winter 2013 ad campaign for Red Valentino has once again been captured by Tim Walker and it shows off the beauty and darkness of the fairytale collection to perfection.
I just love how you can instantly tell that this is a Tim Walker campaign, from the use of props to the contrast between her romantic floral looks and the sinister setting, which looks all the more striking against the crisp white background.
As well as loving the art direction of the campaign, the Russian doll, folky fairytale collection is just adorable – I am in love with the flower pompom shoes, the braided hair and the feminine dresses.
I am seriously lusting over Valentino’s little sister line.
Are you a fan of Red Valentino and their sinister-yet-romantic campaign?

Yesterday, I spent the day reading nearly all the September issues I could get my hands on, my picnic rug in the garden looked like a make-shift newsagents and one of the autumn/winter 2013 campaigns that kept grabbing my attention had be Kenzo with its doll-like heros.
The series of slightly strange and surreal images created by experimental art magazine Toilet Paper stars model Sean O’Pry and Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi on a Kenzo adventure. I am in love with the whole campaign from the miniature doll-like stars pinned to a dissection table with butterflies to riding giant hands in the clouds.
There is also a weird and cute side to the campaign – the weird being the eyeball print trousers and matching nails to the cuteness of a kitty sat in a shoe – seriously random and that’s probably why I love it so much.
I know this campaign has been out for a while, but it was only when I saw it in the magazines that it really made an impact.
Do you love this strange campaign?

I love it when brands go for something innovative and edgy in their advertising campaigns, in fashion that is generally reserved by major fashion houses, but high street chain French Connection has put together something really creativity and cheeky for autumn/winter 2013 with the help of iconic photography Rankin.
Entitled ‘Sketch to Store’, the concept visualises French Connection’s design process, with naked models being covered by the clothing designs sketched by illustrator Jo Bird – such a fun but powerful idea that really translate well in the brand’s first black and white shoot.
I love the way it mixes style and design, with a provocative cheekiness, and how it is moving the brand away from its FCUK days with this quirky and some what fearless approach . I also think it is a great follow up to its This is the Woman campaign.
If you love the black and white photographs, you will love the campaign video, where you see the sketches being added to the models and the humour of the advert really comes out – plus the backing track by The Beaches is amazing!!!
