..Can You Get It Up..?

I'm not a Rihanna fan at all, but I was cleaning the spilt milk out of my fridge when I heard this playing and I thought, Black Eyed Peas..? No..? Looked up and saw the bright new rave style video and thought.. MIA..? No..? Then there she was, Rihanna riding an animal and singing about rude things and I quite liked it. She also looks amazing and I don't think I have ever noticed this before.

I'm not too happy about the scene with the fake Keith Haring style body paint but I like the camouflage effect with the back ground. You are not and never will be Grace Jones, but well done for trying and the good catchy song and looking slutty but not in a horrible way and making me think of summer time.

But still All Hail Grace..Yeah!

Roksanda Ilincic

I was lucky enough to get to some of the shows this Fashion Week, I was also lucky enough to help out backstage at the very wonderful Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2010 show.
Roksanda is not only a brilliant, classic designer who never fails to bring glamour to any show, but she is also the nicest woman I have ever met. I was assisting Victoria Young, who styled the show (and is also class) and got to help putting the looks together and over seeing the dressing backstage. It was great to work with Roksanda and I think everyones hard work paid off at the show. Here are my favorite looks but you can see the full show here.

I have never seen a pair of tapered leg trousers fit so well and I have never wanted a winter coat more than the long grey wool coat or the wool coat with fox fur sleeves. God Bless this woman and her amazing team of crafty sewers that have made me want so many beautiful things.

My Favorite Moment of Fashion Week!

Not only was the Pam Hogg A/W 2010 show absolutely BRILLIANT as expected. But a tear was nearly parted when I saw NIck Cave's beautiful son Jethro and his stunning girlfriend Sophie Willing having a smooch as they passed on the catwalk.

I was very happy to see Nick Cave sat on the front row cheering them both on too, what a Pa!
