Girl Crush: Kerry Washington For Vanity Fair

kerry washington vanity fair Girl Crush: Kerry Washington For Vanity Fair %tag

I have many girl crushes, from Diane Kruger, Jennifer Lawrence to Chinese actress Fan Bingbing for their incredible red carpet style, Olivia Palermo because mainly I want everything in her wardrobe, and even fictional character Carrie Bradshaw, the latest addition to the list has to be Kerry Washington.

Over the past year or so, Kerry has really upped her fashion credentials for me, making me take notice when she hits the red carpet, I have loved so many but these Donna KaranRodarteGiambattista Valli and Louis Vuitton looks are some of my favourites.

Her latest editorial shoot for Vanity Fair’s August issue is another highlight, entitled ‘Scandal’s First Lady’, the spread captured by Norman Jean Roy and styled by Jessica Diehl features some amazing looks. From the Lanvin bodysuit on the cover to the peddle-dashed Armani gown that blends in with the stairs, the futuristic Burberry Prorsum dress, and the sexy black Versace and Donna Karan New York looks. It is one hot editorial.

I love this editorial so much I wish that Vanity Fair would have used Kerry for their September issue – as if this was just for August imagine what the biggest issue of the year would have looked like!!!

Have you watched Scandal yet? I stupidly missed the first season when it aired in the UK so I am attempting to find the time to catch-up at the moment, but my friends have raved about it because of how brilliant Kerry is in it.

Are you a fan of Kerry Washington? And will you be buying this month’s Vanity Fair?

A Dangerous Method: Keira Knightley In Burberry Prorsum

KieraBurberry A Dangerous Method: Keira Knightley In Burberry Prorsum %tag

Who: Keira Knightley

Where: At a screening of her new film, A Dangerous Method in London earlier this week

Wearing: A burgundy Burberry Prorsum gown with keyhole detail, an open back and black bow belt from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with a Chanel quilted clutch and a black ring

Verdict: As always Keira really does bring an elegance and sophistication to the red carpet. What I love about this understated gown has to be the winter hue of the dress, there has been a lot of white, nudes and brights on the red carpet but it is always nice to see rich tones on floor-skimming gowns. A great return to the red carpet – can’t wait to see her styling on her promotional tour.

Video Loving: Britney Spears – Till the World Ends

brit1 500x289 Video Loving: Britney Spears   Till the World Ends  %tag

This blog is generally all about things I love, whether it is fashion or Barbie, or my stationary addiction, if you read enough it is generally a personal diary of everything I’m a fan of, and Britney Spears is one thing I adore.

OK, she has been through low times, the head-shaving instance was definitely not a great hair day, but come everyone has to see how talented she is, and oh boy has she brought it for her latest music video for new single, Till the World Ends.

In terms of my fav Britney Spears video this has to be fairly high. I love Toxic – come on Britney as an airstewardess is amazing, and Hit Me Baby One More Time – mainly because she looks so young, and I also have a soft spot for I Love Rock n Roll – that one is seriously all about the motorcycle. Well this one maybe a little similar to Slave 4 U *see my friend Carina’s post Britney Spears – Slave Till the World Ends*, but I don’t care – I am loving Brits apocalyptic version of December 2012.

But it isn’t just about the song, or even the choreography, the fashion is always a focal point with any Britney video. Whether it is a school uniform, a red all-in-one PVC jumpsuit, or a see-through sequined body stocking. The fashion focal for me in this video, has to be this Burberry Prorsum studded and spiked leather jacket *below*, from the spring/summer 2011 collection. A gorgeous biker jacket, and could be yours for only £3,995 at Net-A-Porter.com, I know bargain right!!

I love this song, I love this video – watch the full video below, and I am so excited for version two featuring Britney’s choreography!

234870087 500x788 Waiting for Forever: Rachel Bilson Rocks Burberry %tag

Who: Rachel Bilson

Where: At the Los Angeles Premiere of Waiting For Forever held at the Pacific Theatres at The Grove

Wearing: A grey ruffled Burberry Prorsum halter dress with leather details, teamed with an amazing quilted leather biker jacket, both from the spring/summer 2011 collection, and finished off nicely with a Burberry studded leather clutch

Verdict: I love everything about this look from Rachel, the dress is cute but with an edgy feel with the added leather detailing, and then teaming it with that jacket – it is to-die-for!!

I also so pleased that she had her hair cut – divine red carpet look from Rachel.

Pre-Fall 2011: Burberry Prorsum Goes For Luxe

For the Burberry Prorsum autumn/winter 2011 pre-collection, it seems that Christopher Bailey is done with the rock n roll vibe of his SS11 show, and decided that AW11 would be the time for a luxe feel. This collection continues to play with prints, and there are also a lot more red carpet style floor skimming dresses in this collection than past seasons, which I can see the likes of Emma Watson, Daisy Lowe, Nicole Richie and would love to see Leighton Meester in this blue tortoise-shell print dress with pleated skirt below – divine!!

I was also happy to see the leg lengthening super skinny flares, OK not for everyone but I do love flared trousers and this moss green tweed suit is gorgeous.

The luxe feel continued throughout with bejewelled detailing, fur trims *always go for faux peeps* which were teamed with dresses, and they are also detachable to add some fun into your looks, and it seems we will all be nipping in our waist as most looks came with tied wrapped belts.

My favourite piece has to be this bejewelled navy trench – gorgeous!!

#LFW: Excitement As The Schedule Is Announced

So last week the British Fashion Council announced the official London Fashion Week schedule for SS11 for September. I have been mulling over the schedule and I am liking what I see. The big highlight has to be Giles Deacon confirming his return to London, marking a return following two seasons in Paris – he appears on the fourth day and it will definitely be the hot ticket of the week.

Giles Deacon commented on his return to London: “Giles is a quintessential London label and I am extremely happy to be showing in London after two successful seasons in Paris”.

Other things I was happy to see on the schedule were: Swedish fashion house Acne are debuting at LFW for the first time with two salon presentations, which is nice to see, especially after the successful opening of their London flagship this week on Dover Street. Other newcomers to the schedule include one of my favourite emerging designers Holly Fulton who is going a catwalk show with the help of NEWGEN sponsored by Topshop.

It is also great to see that Burberry Prorsum, Matthew Williamson, Pringle of Scotland, Antonio Berardi and Jonathan Saunders are returning for a third consecutive season. As well as British talent in Paul Smith, Jasper Conran and Betty Jackson to world-class emerging designer businesses such as Christopher Kane, Erdem, Marios Schwab and Richard Nicoll. It is going to be a great season.

But one of the most interesting things to see on the schedule is that of a Alexander McQueen Memorial set for Monday, September 20, at 11am. No further details have been announced yet, but I am sure it will be packed full of fashion editors and fashionistas paying their respects, I just hope that they also stream it live for all his fans as well.

I am already making my wish-list of tickets: Erdem, Sass & Bide, PPQ, DAKS, adidas by Stella McCartney, Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Kinder Aggugini, David Koma and Holly Fulton back-to-back, Mark Fast, Peter Pilotto, Jaeger, Christopher Kane, many more I am sure – and of course Burberry and Giles *well a girl can dream*.

At least this season I will be dropping down to more shows for work, my registration is already submitted, I also can’t wait for the digital schedule to be announced as watching from the comfort of my sofa was also a nice luxury.

Let me know what you are interested to see?

Barbie: Ken Gets An Esquire Makeover

When these pics dropped into my inbox I just had to share – as Ken has been given a style makeover courtesy of Esquire magazine. In the picture above Ken is sporting Burberry Prorsum, barley cotton canvas overcoat, grey cotton utility shirt, black wool pants and black leather boots – what a hunk – this is a good way to make Barbie jealous!

With Ken making his big screen debut in Toy Story 3 this month, Esquire’s fashion team headed up by Fashion Director, Catherine Hayward, came up with this fabulous idea. I love it, Barbie always gets the spotlight and now her ex-boyfriend is getting his camera time – do you reckon she will change her mind and take him back after these shots?

The six-page shoot is in the August issue of Esquire, out now, and Ken is wearing key pieces from autumn/winter 2010, including Burberry, Prada, Gucci and Paul Smith. It is so cool that they got these designers to take part. Now I wonder if we will get a limited-edition designer Ken.

Who: Gorgeous Ken

Wearing: Gucci head-to-toe, a cream suede trench coat, grey cashmere turtle-neck sweater, white wool slim pants, dark brown calf-length boots, tortoiseshell aviators and my favourite item a beige weekend bag.

Verdict: Country winter chic at its very best and I love his weekend bag and I am sure that Barbie will be most jealous of this item

Ken in Prada: camel wool jacket, beige wool sweater, blue cotton shirt, black wool pants, brown leather shoes and a camo print leather bag

Barbie in Prada: pink gabardine camo coat, brown leather heels, and a burgundy/brown leather handbag *I want this Barbie*

Esquire’s Editor-in-Chief, Jeremy Langmead says: “It was great to work with such a style icon as Ken.  If you thought the metrosexual was dead, Ken proves otherwise.  There were no tantrums, although he did spend a little longer in hair and make-up than is usual.”

I can’t wait to check out the full Ken Fashion Icon photo shoot in the August issue of Esquire – I looked tonight on my way home and the newsagent didn’t have. Check out how sexy Katy Perry looks on the cover – those shoes are so pretty and those Mark Fast knickers are amazing.
