Only Prada could mix a sophisticated domestic setting, an adorable cat, and glamorous clothes to create a trippy film-noir version of daily life that leaves me completely confused but wanting more.
This is the latest in the brand’s ‘Real Fantasies’ series, and it is just as surreal and quirky as the last, mixing together live action models with collage and hand-drawn shapes to showcase both the women’s and men’s autumn/winter 2013 collections.
As well as loving all the gingham, the leather jackets and thick waist belts, there is a spooky element to the film that I love with the models ending up in the TV and in pictures on the wall, but surely the best bit has to be the kitty that just appears from nowhere!!!
What do you think of Prada’s latest fashion film?

This week Vanity Fair launched its own video channel featuring four original series inspired by the mag, one dedicated to Manhattan’s most iconic addresses, a book series, an animated ‘how-to’ series, which this week teaches you how to behave at a Swingers Party and a celebrity interview show hosted by Vanity Fair Senior West Coast Editor Krista Smith, which includes stars taking a spin in the V.F.’s video photo booth that always seems to be a highlight at their Oscar bash.
The first star to chat with Krista Smith is my girl crush Diane Kruger, yes I know I have already featured her once this week, but this video is super charming and the actress dishing on her love of fashion, not having a stylist and working the red carpet, as well as her new series on FX ‘The Bridge’.
Diane also gets into V.F.’s video photo – pulls silly faces, while still looking gorgeous, shares her love of profiteroles and the phrase ‘see what I mean’, while wearing the most adorable leopard print and multi-coloured flats.

Beauty campaigns are having a bit of a revival for me, whether it is the Dior fragrance campaign with Daphne Groeneveld looking stunning with a cat on her head, the OPI dancing horses, or Chanel’s nail cabaret, beauty ads are standing out for being more than just a pretty face.
The latest beauty campaign making me smile has to be this the Dior Summer Mix, not only has the French fashion house put together a gorgeous, summery collection filled with hot pinks and oranges, but they created a clever summery video that looks like it is set in Barbie’s beach house, with tiny pool loungers and nail varnish sized chairs.
This is a fun video with the Dior blush Cheek Crème rolling down the stairs, the Dior Sunnies, Capeline, Créoles, Tye & Dye nail varnishes taking in some sun by the pool, and retro polarioid snaps throughout. While summer hasn’t really got off to a sunny start, this collection could really help on the dull, some what wintry days, I can’t wait to try the ‘Tie & Dye’ nail varnish shade.
As well as loving the video and the summer shades, I adore that the print campaign featuring Julia Hafstrom with its retro 50s ladylike touch.
Are you a fan of Dior’s latest beauty campaign?

I do love a good fashion film and this one from Christian Louboutin is adorable. Celebrating the luxury footwear label’s first US in-store salon at Saks in New York, the short film starring the designer himself, follows his iconic red-soled footwear from his Paris studio, past the Eiffel Tower to the Flat-iron Building in New York before heading over to Saks. As well as the glimpses of my two favourite cities, I love Louboutin’s charm, and the seductive red footprint trial.
If you have a couple of minutes to spare, this short film is an adorable watch!

Shoe addicts you have to watch this adorable short film from J.Crew with their gorgeous creative director Jenna Lyons discussing her love of shoes, she has 289 pairs and counting, and how the brand makes their fabulous footwear collections.
I am not as shoe obsessed as some, granted I have a lot of pairs, but sky-high heels aren’t always my thing but I do love to look at them, admire them on other people, and there are some beauties in this film, especially the ones that Jenna describes as “business at the front, party at the back” – they are simply divine.
I am in love with the ‘Etta’ seen in this video, the term ‘shiny pony’ and Jenna – oh and generally everything about J.Crew – I can’t wait for the store to open on Regent Street, London later this year.
“Shoes are like fairies… with that little magical piece that finishes everything” – Jenna Lyons.

Hi guys, how are all your weekends going? Well, after having a pretty amazing week, I am full of happy beans because of all the red carpet action, I thought I would have a go at video blogging.
As you know last month I was asked to take part in the Gillette Venus Naked challenge and as I am a few weeks I thought instead of writing down my thoughts I would take to YouTube and rabbit on a little on what I like, dislike and a few tips on how to use the device.
Please be kind this is my first ever video blog, I was a little nervous, but I would love to know what you all think – I think it maybe a little long but I just seemed to get on a roll!!!
