Editorial Loving: Vogue Paris – Real-Life Designer Barbie Dolls


It has been a while since I have actually posted something on my blog that hasn’t had something to do with my wedding, sorry about that but I hope you understand that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I just had to share. So, before I bombard you with photographs from my UK celebrations that fingers crossed you all want to see, I thought I would showcase this amazing editorial from the latest issue of Vogue Paris with real-life designer Barbie dolls.

I have always dreamed of a collection full of designer Barbie dolls, I have a Karl Lagerfeld, a Dior, a Kate Spade one, complete with a little dog, a Coach doll with the cutest bag I wish I would steal, as well as a trio of Christian Louboutin dolls with better footwear than me, so I literally gasped aloud when I saw this beautiful and creative editorial taking inspiration from the Moschino Barbie collection and dressing up each real-life doll in looks from the likes of Valentino, Chanel, Gucci and Miu Miu.

What I love most about this editorial shot by Giampaolo Sgura has to be the fact that models Elizabeth Erm and Magdalena Frackowiak have been shot like Barbie dolls inside their boxes, it is as though they are sat on a shelf in a toy store waiting for me to take them home.

The styling by creative duo Claire Dhelens and Celia Azoulay is outstanding, not only are they showcasing the designer’s latest collections but they really do illustrate what the brand is about – from the butterflies and flowers of Valentino to the David Bowie vibes of Saint Laurent, and the fun-girl pompoms of Miu Miu, and don’t get me started on the equestrian chicness of Gucci, I basically need Mattel to make that happen stat!!

It is hard to pick a favourite, I do love the total Barbie vibes of Moschino, as well as the accessories of the Louis Vuitton doll, she even has her very own doll-sized trunk, seriously swooning over that, and a Ralph Lauren air-stewardess dressed all in gold is super fun, but I think my heart belongs to Chanel, did you see her make-up, her pearl jewellery and her handbags.

It seems Barbie is very much in fashion at the moment and I love this creative-twist on showcasing the latest collections, it must have taken a lot of hours to build the sets and to meticulously attach all the accessories, and I just love that the models are such great dolls!!!

Which real-life Barbie doll is your favourite?

Guardians of the Galaxy: Zoe Saldana In Louis Vuitton


Who: Zoe Saldana

Where: At the world premiere of her new flick Marvel’s space adventure ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black and white semi-sheer Louis Vuitton dress from the Resort 2015 collection, teamed with Jimmy Choo ‘Kamelia’ heels

Verdict: Well I think it is safe to say that pregnancy isn’t going to stop Zoe Saldana making edgy fashion choices and I am so pleased as I think she looks insane in this sexy-chic Louis Vuitton outfit.

I love how this look is edgy, with the flash of her white bralet and accented with that harness-like belt detailing, but it also has a elegance with the long sleeves and jagged edge lace to the skirt, as well as a sexiness with the semi-sheer nature of the dress.

Add those feathered Jimmy Choo heels and that gorgeous side swept faux bob and for me this is one amazing look, but I wonder what it would have looked like without the belt.

Are you a fan of Zoe Saldana’s latest red carpet look?

Cannes Film Festival: Fan Bingbing In Louis Vuitton


Who: Chinese actress Fan Bingbing

Where: At the Opening Night of The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival for the Great Gatsby Cannes Film Festival premiere held at the Theatre Lumiere

Wearing: A duchess satin strapless Louis Vuitton gown with a sequinned bodice, finishing off her look with a Louis Vuitton minaudière and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: What I love about Cannes is the drama of the red carpet, the gowns are always that much bigger, luxurious, and generally custom. For the past few years Fan Bingbing has really shined through with her incredible Asian-inspired gowns like last year when she looked like she was wearing a tapestry.

It is hard for any dress to top last year but this gorgeous rose pink one does a good job. I love the long train, the intricate detailing of the bodice, and it all works perfectly styled with a gold tasselled Louis Vuitton minaudière and her Chopard jewellery.

Oscars 2013: Reese Witherspoon In Louis Vuitton

Oscars-reece-witherspoon-LVWho: Reese Witherspoon

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom Louis Vuitton Klein blue silk faille strapless corset gown, featuring a contrasting black bow trim to the bustier and a train, teamed with Louis Vuitton fine jewellery and Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: This was one of my favourite gown’s of the night and it was all because of the bold colour, it stood out against her blonde side-swept wavy locks and with a red carpet filled with nude tones I loved that she went with colour.

I know that I state Old Hollywood glamour maybe too much, but Reese was definitely oozing sophistication and sex appeal in this gorgeous yet simple gown, and I love that she didn’t over-do her make-up and jewellery – minimal and subtle worked perfectly.

Cover Loving: Charlotte Free For Flare


As soon as I saw this cover I couldn’t help but repeat the word ‘Beetlejuice’ three times, seriously I sometimes think I’m programmed by the movies I love, but wow what a cover from model of the moment Charlotte Free.

Flare always seem to get it right whether it is an A-list celebrity or a model cover and this is one of my favourite model covers as it is showing off her personality as well as the styling, which totally makes me wish I had skinny legs so I could pull of these ‘Beetlejuice’ striped black and white Genetic jeans.

I love the combination of the Comme des Garçons jacket, the dotty printed Equipment shirt and those Louis Vuitton platforms and I reckon we might see some variations on this paraded at London Fashion Week in street style shots.

Even with the pink dip-dye hair, yes one hair trend I would love to see the back off, I love this cover as Charlotte really does ooze cool in her candy floss pink tips.

So what do you think of the 5’7″ model – is she the next Kate Moss?

Django Unchained: Kerry Washington In Louis Vuitton

kerry washington, louis vuitton, Django Unchained, SS13, Berlin

Who: Actress Kerry Washington

Where: At the photocall for her latest movie Django Unchained in Berlin, Germany

Wearing: A white and ivory chequered calf-length Louis Vuitton dress from the spring/summer 2013 collection, styled with a white Louis Vuitton bow headband, a tiny Vince Camuto clutch and white Christian Louboutin heels

Verdict: I wasn’t sure when I first saw Louis Vuitton’s spring/summer 2013 collection, then I went to see the pieces up-close at their press day and I don’t know what happen I fell in love with the chequered effect, and this dress really stood out.

I have been waiting to see it on the red carpet as I wondered if the styling would translate and I am so pleased to say it does and that is all down to Kerry Washington really embracing the calf-length and that adorable bow headband.

There is a fresh feel about Kerry in this look that I love and I am also adoring her doll-like Vince Camuto clutch – the most darling bag I have ever seen on the red carpet, which works perfectly with the large chequered print.

I am sure this look will be a little like Marmite for some but I am loving it – what do you think of Kerry’s latest look?

Friday Eye Candy: Ewan McGregor Looking Dapper For LA Confidential

This week on Eye Candy I have chosen Ewan McGregor, who granted isn’t known for his hunk status, but after seeing this editorial shot by Art Streiber for LA Confidential magazine I think a few opinions will be changed.

Looking very dapper on the cover in a classic Louis Vuitton trench coat, I love the styling for the whole shoot, Evan really looks hot in looks by Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, and Ermenegildo Zegna.

So anyone else looking at Ewan in a different light? He looks seriously hot!!!
