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...

There is even a nail version of Prada's print, created by the fabulous WAH nailssalon in London (which, if you haven't visited yet, you absolutely need to check out). Go ahead and indulge in this tropical fruity deliciousness all through the season... this summer is all about tutti frutti...

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...

Here are some of the other rainbows I've seen around lately: You can get great rainbow nails and rainbow hair at Wah Nails and Bleach London respectively for a really fashion forward look, or Comme des Garçons perfume for a rainbow scent! Or even rainbow decals for your keyboards...

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...

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...
