In other words... girl crushes. By the way don't you just love that expression? I think it perfectly describes the instinctive feelings we as girls have for other girls, like when ten minues after having met a girl we are already talking about favourite books or manicures. Or, on the other...

Well, after years of working in fashion and having been influenced by more of them than I care to remember, I would say a style icon is someone who has developped and expressed his - or her - personality through his fashion sense more successfully than the rest of us mortals and who,...

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...

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...

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...

Thank God for John Lennon and Yoko Ono! They always did things their way. Of course they had to defy wedding conventions on the day they got married. They chose white, though. Mick & Bianca Jagger, AKA Rock Royalty. Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain in their grunge wedding in Waikiki. She was...

I'm rather excited about this last Couture fashion week: it has had unexpected highs (Giambattista Valli's first collection) and lows (Dior's trademark without Galliano seems to be somewhat lost), new collections by long-established industry members (I'm talking Azzedine Alaïa) and... lots of...

Luckily I don't have to wait long: soon I can see a corpse bride, an Indian chief complete with plume and all, and a silhouette in a Napoleon hat which looks very much like John Galliano. Proudly they make their way to the door among the sneers of the Loubie-wearing crowd. "Thank God you're...

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...
