Karl Who?

Karl Lagerfeld has participated in V Magazine's fabulous, and much talked about, size issue by shooting plus size model Miss Dirty Martini. This has come to be much of a surprise to me, as this is a man who notoriously stated that no one wants to see curvy models and that those who complain about the Size Zero epidemic are merely 'fat mummies sat in front of the television with their chip packets'. Insanely ridiculous I know. But it seems as though he has truly eaten his words as I was completely taken aback by just how amazing his shoot turned out to be. The model looks amazing and the styling is spectacular. All in all very true to form of Mr. Lagerfeld.

So could this be a turning point for Karl Lagerfeld? A lesson learned perhaps? For all we know plus sized models could soon be strutting their stuff on the runway for Chanel, proving once and for all that bony hips and giraffe like legs are not a pre-requisite for looking stylish and fabulous.

More images from the shoot are available here.

Nailed It


American Apparel have just launched their very own range of nail polishes, spanning an impressive 18 shades! I have my eye on the mint green 'Office' shade, however at the very purse friendly price of £5 I think I'll take one in every colour please!

Available now on on-line here.

Natalia Vodianova

The latest UK version of Vogue landed on my doorstep this morning...

I think the actual editorial feature of Natalia is breathtaking and very refreshing for a Vogue feature, but the cover just doesn't do it for me. Very Spring-esque but also very bland? UK Vogue has been a bit of a let down for me recently and it definitely doesn't compare to it's international counterparts....but that's just my personal opinion!

There was also a small feature on page 56 about the rising fashionable acceptance of hoods, a trend which I believe Vogue is a little late to pick up on!

Misguided Ghosts

I am a little bit peeved that high street stores are already introducing their Spring stock for this year....I'm not quite ready for the brightness of Spring yet. I should like to cling onto my ghostly winter fashion garments for a little while longer please!
