Fairy tale love ball

The White Fairy Tale Love Ball was held at designer Valentino's spectacular French castle Wideville Chateau in July. The mansion was converted into a glistening winter wonderland and celebrities were invited to the annual fundraising event where there was a fashion show and auction of designer clothing.The ice encrusted table settings look breathtakingly magical.

I discovered the art of Marco Mazzoni when I was in New York last year and picked up a copy of 'Hi Fructose' magazine which had his hauntingly beautiful work on the cover. Delicately rendered in coloured pencils it's refreshing to see work of this calibre that is not digitally generated....breathtaking.

shop sui

I love Anna Sui's take on the rock chick. She mixes a bit of Biba with a dash of 40's, a drop of pinup girl and throws in a touch of groupie for good measure. The 2012 Spring collection doesn't stray too far from her usual look but it's pretty damn cute all the same. I'm totally hearting the star net ankle sox and shoes, the kitschy plastic necklaces and sassy shorts.

One man two lives

French born Hedi Slimane is one of my favourite photographers. He was for many years the genius behind Dior Homme and stepped down from the role of Artistic Director in 2007 at the top of his game. He has totally reinvented himself as a sucessful photographer who has taken striking, predominately black and white portraits of many celebrities and musicians. He has moved onto fashion editorial and the combination of his background in fashion and his dramatic portraiture style makes for stunning and edgey imagery.    

Feel the Love

Korean 'V' magazine December 2011

The December issue of Korean 'V' Magazine featured an editorial which chanelled the tattered, broken doll vintage style of Courtney Love. Torn lace, diamantes and safety pins all reminiscent of her unique style.
