Women aren't one-dimensional. No woman is either a madonna or a whore. But our habit of putting famous people into easily identifiable boxes means celebrity women often come off this way. The way famous women represent themselves and their brand... does tend to make them figureheads for a certain 'kind of woman'.

In my Last Supper there's Jesus, or King Karl of Lagerfeld, self-professed hater of fatties, uglies, and seemingly anyone who doesn't neatly fit his ideal of beauty!

The sun has arrived, and a new light is cast into our homes, calling for a fresh look at our interiors.

Blanks has said that "fashion is full of people with very thin skins and fragile egos." His sentiment was proven by Gaultier's outburst, and the fashion industry waited with hot anticipation for Blanks' review this season. Funnily enough, it never came.
