Paris Hilton

So, Paris is feeling the crunch too? Last time the heiress was in town reports claim she was given £70,000 in appearance fees. This year however, the nightclubs have not been so welcoming. Despite asking for £50,000 from Paper, the nightclub was so prescriptive in how they wanted Paris to spend the evening that she declined to go. Whisky Mist refused to pay and the only one that managed to cough up was Movida but this time Paris was only able to squeeze £25,000 out of them. Here to promote her new TV show, My New Best Friend, which follows […]

Election Style

There is now less than a week to go until the election of the next President of the United States. For months, the key issues have been debated, televised, and scrutinised; the political gauntlets have been well and truly thrown; and now the world waits with baited breath for a result. Much has been made of the rising costs of the candidates’ campaigns – and if we in Britain felt we were lacking in our offerings of (monetary) support, now may be the best, and indeed the only remaining time to make that move. Obama’s “Runway To Change” collection has […]

Patricia Field

We’ve had Stella at H&M. Celia Birtwell at TopShop. Mouret at Gap. And now this, the queen of the SATC dynasty selling her wares at the UK’s favourite high-street store. More famous for its standard cotton basics than its glittering couture, Marks & Spencer has taken a bold step in collaborating with kooky Pat Field, and sadly some of the pieces demonstrate how Bradshaw’s brashness will never work for the masses – however to miss this completely would most definitely be missing out. Some of the dresses are truly inventive and new, their inspiration having been drawn from the carefully […]
