Audrey Hepburn, all casual. Lovely Rita Hayworth Bacall, Bogie and Bogie's bike. Barbara Stanwyck enjoying a game of tennis. Chaplin was also a notorious tennis player. Paul Newman and Robert Redford at the ping pong table. Burt Lancaster and Audrey Hepburn practising golf...

Actually we probably share many of them: Audrey Hepburn, Edie Sedgwick, Brigitte Bardot... and all the rest of the style icons that fill every "Style Icons" list in the Western world. I confess sometimes I find it all a bit tiring. Don't get me wrong, I love Audrey and Edie as much as the...

Inspired by the endless "scènes de ménage" and dissatisfied housewives throughout film history (from Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eightto Carmen Maura in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown or Thelma & Louise), the story was shot by Jeremy Zaessinger and styled by my friend Ray Tetauira and...

But as exciting and bright and optimistic as colour block looks on editorials and runways, I'm slightly terrified at the prospect of seeing everyone stroll down the streets dressed in a "colourful" style (aka slightly clownesque). As I see it, if the trend is not properly worked, it could...

So, no matter what your fancy is, jump into the tutti frutti trend! Miu Miu has gone for an apple-licious look in its 2011 resort collection. Fun and insolent, the collection features a retro apple print (with a delicious 70's feel) in dresses, palazzo pants and shirts... ... and the...

Hallelujah! You see, Patsy Stone and Eddie Monsoon are a pillar of the fashion industry (I wonder what this says about the fashion industry) and Ab Fab has been a crucial influence on virtually everyone I know. We all have spent countless hours laughing at the politically incorrect jokes made...

Images of Gene Kelly dancing in his uniform and of Spencer Tracy fishing in his Prada-like sweater float around my (trash-filled) head. Eventually I realize I would look quite Zoolanderish around real fishermen with my ruby-red lipstick and tilted little white sailor's hat, and so one more...

In those sunny, fresh mornings, I used to watch my grandmother as she dressed up for the day. We had lovely conversations even though I was only about 6, and I was fascinated at her enormous multi-coloured Christian Dior make-up palette and her silk foulard collection. To me she looked...

As we sing "last night I dreamt of San Pedro", the feathered dracula whispers in my ear: "sweetheart, you are a goddess!". I feel at home again.

an outstanding fashion film styled by my friend René Gloor and shot by Nicolas Valois! I'm a really big fan of this one, not only because David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia (the movie on which the fashion film was based) is one if my all-time favourites, but also because René and Nicolas's film...
