Now I'm all for the modelling industry to be inclusive of all body shapes and sizes and I think plus size modelling has a valid and important role in the industry, but I also think that the average consumer these days is wise enough to know that skinny doesn't equal beautiful any more.
Fashion week internships can be anything from a day to a couple of weeks long, are normally for PR companies, and will normally involve a lot of menial tasks like preparing a delivering invites, dressing at shows, and working front of house at shows.
When I got the call I exalted. I pranced around my boxy university room in Edinburgh totally joyous (this news also prompted one of the best high-fives I've ever received, but I digress). As I sank down into my spinny chair trying to stop shaking so that I may return to critically analysing Chaucer, a thought struck me; what the hell do I wear?
My styling of Justine Miliband turned her from "mouse to fashion maven" overnight (that was according to Liz Jones so I will take that!) Ed, on the other hand didn't like the shorter, sharper look that I gave him. Since I worked with him, his hair has gone all over the place - one minute its long, then short again...
Recently I had the great pleasure of modelling the Valeria Marquisa Millinery AW15 collection Rotkäppchen. As each piece was placed and tilted on my head it had me wondering what had inspired her to create these fairytale adornments in all shades of cinnabar.
People put the popularity of the unretouched photograph down to different factors but for me personally I think it comes down to one thing and this is simply a comforting reminder that these people are human after all.
Today's post is all about taking a bite out of the current cape trend. I've decided to style it in two quite contrasting ways- one taps into some true lady like charm for the working girl, the other screams street style vibes.
There have been some major changes occuring this week... The Uggs have been replaced with loafers (more so because I can no longer get them on), I am back to walking the 100 yards to Scarlett's nursery instead of shamelessly driving it, and last years daffodils have made a fresh appearance in my garden pots!
It was a good look and quite easily put him in the running for best dressed Chancellor in the past 50 years. Admittedly the competition from Ken Clarke, John Major, and Alistair Darling isn't exactly that strong, and the only thing Gordon Brown wore well was a scowl.
The fashion industry is no exception to the infamous paradox of needing experience to get a job and needing a job to get experience, but there are ways to fake it until you make it and today I'm going to share those tips with you...
As you enter the exhibition, you are met with the face of Alexander McQueen merging into his trademark skull, which for me signified the work and the person merging into the visionary he became. Known for his legendary catwalks and theatrical style, this has been translated into exhibition form.
Lee Alexander McQueen was a rare talent - he had that scarce combination of superb craftsmanship and extraordinary vision. And both of these pillars of his strength are on show in this stunning new exhibition of his work.
Kathy Griffin's exit from E!'s Fashion Police, after just seven shows, may come as a shock, but the presenter's leaving statement makes more than a few pertinent points. Namely, that the days of poking fun and (often nastily) joking about women's style decisions are over. THANK GOD.
All the promises and commitments to giving girls a better future and empowering women to do more are thrown out the window when they are then used as clothes horses. What message does that send to our teen daughters!?
What do Larry Clark and Jonathan Anderson have in common? Unique talent that pushes the limits of creativity and inspires others the world over. And when two original talents join forces, the result is sure to be sensational. Meet two creatives brought together over dissident youth culture.
It's just one of those passing fashions: meta, almost, a passing fashion about a passing fashion: a stripy dress which will go out of style almost as quickly as people forget the online debate about what colour it looks in different kinds of light.
