Noughty eighties

Brace yourselves fashionistas; the unflattering fashions of the eighties are making a comeback. And if flashbacks of stone washed denim and Dr Martens don’t make you recoil in horror, then this summer could be your season.  We’ve already seen (and sampled) the rise of the skinny jean so all you’ll need now to complete the throwback is a batwing jumper, a garish hair band and a set of sturdy shoulder pads. But for those of you too young to remember other statements that made the decade so memorable, here are a few of the trends that will be enjoying a resurgence this […]

Look Fashion Swap

Boasting both eco and recession-friendly credentials, the Look Fashion Swap is the perfect answer to the current wave of retail tragedies sweeping the nation. Set to take place on January 31st and February 1st, the event will be open only to those who have donated swappable pieces of clothing and accessories in order to gain “points” redeemable against a wealth of cast-offs, offered by big celebrity names such as Camilla Al-Fayed, Peaches Geldof, and Gwen Stefani.

Lily grows up

Lily Allen has gone all demure and sophisticated on us in a smouldering new photoshoot for Interview magazine. The opinionated songstress, whose second album, It’s Not Me, it’s You, will be released next month, is interviewed for the cult American magazine by artist and close friend Damien Hirst. And always one to speak her mind, Lily admits that all she really wants is a filthy rich husband. But despite finding fame and securing it with her own talent, would the singer really be satisfied by being just another trophy wife? The pop star confessed: “I just hope I can stay […]

Posh underwear

Victoria Beckham has followed in the footsteps of husband David by slipping into Emporio Armani underwear for the Italian fashion house’s latest advertising campaign. The brooding black and white shots show the former Spice Girl reclining on a bed in nothing but lingerie, a pout and a pair of high heels. Fashion designer Georgio Armani revealed that he selected the 34-year-old mother of three for his spring/summer collection because she is a “stylish and intriguing woman.” And the leaking of the pictures happily coincided with Katie Holmes’ campaign for Mui Mui, in which the actress adopts a similar sultry look […]

Prada

Prada seem to have taken pole position yet again with their new Spring/Summer 09 advertising campaign. Photographed by the highly acclaimed Stephen Meisel and Heidi Slimane, the collection is Classicism with an edge. The women’s collection has been shot to look like an ancient stone bas-relief. Like the mythological characters, the models are positioned as though they are all interconnected, creating a dance-like effect. With porcelain skin against the brilliant gold and python print, Meisel shows just how integration between ancient and contemporary is done. For the menswear, Heidi Slimane captures timeless classicism with black and white and poetic stillness. […]
