Even though my invites for London Fashion Week must have got lost in the post I'm still looking forward to the next few days of British offerings, because if theres one thing London Fashion Week isn't, it's Beige. That ticket is thankfully always taken up by New York. I've been left feeling undecidedly underwhelmed by the Big Apple's efforts. I know, I know, NYC has always been the most commercial week of the lot but still, no wonder poor old Zelda Kaplan popped her cloggs front row at Joanna Nastrianni! At least you can always rely on good old Jeremy Scott to pull the multicoloured yeti cape out the bag.

Red carpet dressing has gone to the ruddy dogs. It's as if stylists and the wanky celebrities they work for have totally lost it. The number of red carpet car crashes has shot up in recent months and we know Joan Rivers will be having an absolute field day over on E! Nb. If you haven't seen Fashion Police -Get to know.
Don't get us wrong, theres always been retinal horror shows like the British Soap Awards, where the entire female cast of Hollyoakes looks like something Dolly Parton threw up in the 80's but it was always Tinsel Town that offered us something with a little more finesse, a bit more glitz and a lot more glam. Apparantly not anymore.
not quite sure where we're going with this...
We just saw this picture of Robin and got carried away.
... oh and this...

The one thing that scares me most about life? The ageing process and whether i'll be able to do it gracefully and more importantly painlessly! Yesterday I was sent this clip, a trailer for an upcoming documentary film about fashionable old birds in New York. My heart melted a little listening to Iris Apfel talking about, "Being in a funk, putting something on, twirling around and BAM!"

I'm not a fan of Madge, in fact I think she's a deluded mess who makes films about Nazi sympathisers and glorifies them as romantic heros and style icons. Anyway, I digress, what I really want to say is... The only good thing to come out of her SuperBowl performance? Leather gladiator costumes and Versace inspired jewels. Credit where credits due on that front. HOWEVER.... Everything else made me want to throw up all over M.I.A's bad decision to feature on perhaps one of the worst songs of all time. Sharing a stage with LMFAO? Dub-step break down of give me all your lovin'? "WORLD PEACE" in giant size gold letters? I wonder how many Palestinians saw that and thought hey, you know what you're right!
Fuck you Super Bowl.

Nippon has done it once again and proved they're by far the most editorially fashion forward out of the VOGUE lot - with that mad Italian bird running the show they were always going to be. Their 'Kiss of the Matador' story features in the March issue and i'm completely in love with it. Give me studded leather and a Gaucho hat and i'm anyones. Anna, you had me at gold hoops.
This is why I love you.

AnOther Mag put out a short film about Rick Owens and his wife of 20 years, Michele Lamy, documenting their latest venture together, creating a line of furniture.
He trusts her instincts instead of his own. She likes to henna her fingers. Proper cute these two.
