Shard London will be the tallest office building in Europe when it is completed in 2012. I cannot wait to photograph it for my blog. The way it pierces the sky to such a high degree is purely captivating. London's skyline will not be the same again and I have to say this can only be a good thing. Evolution and change all the way!
The thing I love about Love is the fact that they're always willing to push boundaries... Beth Ditto naked on the first issue, eight naked supermodel covers for the third issue and now this; Lea T (the trans supermodel) making out with Kate Moss (styled to look butch and masculine) and shot by Mert and Marcus for the fifth issue. Oh and Justin Bieber features on the back cover, shot by Terry Richardson, looking superdyke-ish... The new issue of Love is out on the 7th Feb 2011!
Me and my two flatmates, the troublesome duo known as GAGA decided to take a walk this afternoon from our humble little house in Vauxhall to the King's Road in Chelsea. The light was beautiful and the scenery breathtaking. I therefore took a few lil snaps along the way!
Grace and Amelia crossing Vauxhall Bridge... both effortlessly chic in what they are wearing.
Grace and Amelia sharing a giggle opposite Battersea Power Station...
LOVE walks around London and discovering new things and new views. Cannot wait for the spring when it's easier and more comfortable to walk about in less layers!
Model of the moment Lindsey Wixson is shot by Tim Walker in the latest Mulberry ad campaign for Spring/Summer 2011. So cute and pretty. Tillie bags feature in pretty much of all the ads. This is supposed to be THE bag of the season.
I don't normally pick favourite images from fashion magazines but in the last few weeks I have seen three which I absolutely LOVE! So I thought I'd share them with you all... The first is taken from the latest issue of Paper Planes (Back to Black Issue). The feature was shot in New York by Kevi Muntane; I love how the image is washed-out by the strength of the sunlight. I also love the styling.
The next image is taken from the latest issue of Industrie magazine. The piece was a photographic essay on Rodarte shot by Danko Steiner. The image I have picked is so striking and awe-inspiring. Shot in B&W on a neutral set, the shoes are literally the object of desire.
The final image is taken from the latest issue of Hercules. I have never bought Hercules before but I think I will from now on. The models featured within are to die for and the photography is so varied in style and finish. The image I have picked is from a shoot by Giampaolo Sgura entitled 'One Of A Kind'. The images are quite simple but for me they just stand out. It doesn't help that every single model is stinking hot!
This will be my final sale purchase... LOVE Westwood and LOVE the proportions of this top. The ribbed cuffs and waist create extra volume in all the right places. I just need to wait 'til payday to be able to buy it. Hopefully it'll still be there when the time comes to hand over the dough!
Whilst on lunch today I bought the December issue of Vogue Italia. Yes, I know it is two months out of date but it is the most recent issue I've been able to find on the streets of London!
Anyway, there were two shoots that really caught my eye... The first is of Gemma Arterton shot by Emma Summerton and the second is of Kate Moss shot by Nick Knight. Both shoots transform Gemma and Kate into new, unrecognisable women with impeccable style and poise. I've taken some pictures of the pictures and posted them below! Gemma first followed by Kate. Enjoy...
I work at Mulberry and I have a Bayswater in chocolate and a Roxanne Tote in black and now I want this bad boy! It is so big and so luxurious and very very Mulberry. I just need to save up my pennies to get it...with staff discount of course.
I would get it in black or chocolate because they'd age better but I really want to get an oak bag and wait until it becomes all vintagey. I think this bag would have quite a 70s vibe once it ages. Retro-chic just in time for summer? Yes please!
These Christian Louboutin spike loafers are to die for... Well, I think so anyway and I really want a pair! They would go with everything in my wardrobe. I have to tell myself that in order to justify them! It's just a shame that the price tag leaves them just that little bit out of my reach! Maybe it's for the best?!?
Jeremy Scott and Adidas have produced some pretty cool collaboration trainers over the past few seasons but these have to be the best ones yet. They're due out soon for the SS'11 season and I can't wait to get my hands on a pair. I can just imagine wearing funky coloured socks with them so that everyone can see the funk on my feet!
I would just like to start by saying a huge apology to all my followers for not updating for quite some time!
I have been uber busy with work and University and have realised how bad I have been with keeping you guys informed of things... So, I will post a few things over the next few days. Keep your eyes peeled peeps!
