Just like I suspected, Emmanuelle Alt has been announced successor of the legendary Carine Roitfeld, outgoing editor of Vogue Paris. The very obvious reason was to ensure continuity since she worked alongside Carine through her 10 year reign as editor. She was the logical choice if you ask me.
The president of Condé Nast France, Xavier Romatet, had this to say, “Vogue Paris is performing strongly and I wish to entrust the editor-in-chief position to someone who will ensure a certain continuity, while bringing a new energy and dimension.”
We certainly agree Xavier, there’s a special place in our hearts for our rock chic style icon, Emmanuelle Alt.
Hearty hearty congratulations to Emmanuelle, we wish her a fun career as editor in chief!

I take a major fancy to editorials because they’re one of the best outlets for creative expression in fashion. And if you’re looking to find the creative director who has turned out some of the most amazing editorials, look no further than Grace Coddington of US Vogue.
Seven years after this editorial, we’re still loving it. Asides from the fact that I love Alice in Wonderland the classic, the editorial brings the story to life in style and takes inspiration from ten major designers. Alice (Natalia Vodianova) wore dresses from their collections and then they stepped it up by involving each designer in the shoot. Monsieur Lagerfeld himself was right there in wonderland, and it was hilarious to see Viktor and Rolf posing as Tweedledee and Tweedledum.
That’s the amazing magic that happens when you put two legends in a room, Grace Coddington and Annie Liebovitz work some magic.

Rock chic is a style I find incredibly attractive. From the simple, basic ways of wearing the look to the more complex, full regalia of studded jackets, spiked boots, leather pants, the very best of Balmain. Personal style wise, I’ll fall somewhere in the middle. I like the edgy yet feminine allure of the look.
Vogue Spain did a brilliant, quite artistic interpretation of this look in the November issue. The styling featured rock chic looks across the spectrum from intense to simple but it captured the essence of the style pretty well.
The models, Iselin Steiro and Toni Garrn rocked heavily sequinned jackets and pants, leather and blazers against a posh ‘musical’ background. Loved the role of electric guitars in the shoot. The brilliant photography was by David Vasiljevic and styling was done by Barbara Baumel.

I had seen the mini buzz about how much Anne Hathaway looked like Eve Mendes on the cover of Vogue, but nothing quite prepared me for the high fashion retro glam I found in the editorial.
This was Grace Kelly meets Princess Diana at the ball, with an extra dose of glamour. She was dripping in gorgeous jewels, wearing satin gloves and elegant dresses reminiscent of royalty. The lovely dresses were by the likes of Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta and Isaac Mizrahi.
Vogue US Fashion Director Tonne Goodman did the picture perfectly glam styling and photography was by the legendary Mario Testino. Theme of the editorial was ‘Happily ever after’ starring Anne Hathaway and the dashing French actor Raphael Personnaz.
She came across as gorgeous and absolutely elegant, but then seeing her acting history, this is one role she has no problems playing. Photo Credits to Fashiongonerogue
Exciting times are here for online fashion!
After the phenomenal success of Fashion’s Night Out in September, Vogue UK is stepping it up a notch by launching a shiny new version for online retailers. With the creation of Fashion’s Night In, Vogue once again displays the penchant for thinking futuristic and being ahead of the game. We all know online fashion retailers are taking over and regardless of the downsides of online shopping, they just might be the future of fashion.
So here’s the scoop on this exciting event taking place on Monday 1st November, from 5pm through till midnight. It’s featuring eight major online retailers, including my all time favourites, Asos and Net-a-porter.
There will be launches of new collections from that night, special offers and discounts, one-off designer collaborations, styling tips and advice, competitions, goodie bags and bespoke films. With Asos, you get to win hourly prizes and My wardrobe will be giving out expert styling tips via live twitter feed on the site. The best part for me is that the retailers will be giving away part of the proceeds from the night to KidsCo. We all love fashion with a conscience.

These are exciting times for fashion and I’m loving Vogue for taking the lead in the revolution.

Fall has been awash with gorgeous, ladylike fifties fashion and this has produced some of the most glamorous editorials depicting that era. Since the fifties is my favourite era, I’m savouring all of the attention it’s getting and celebrating with multiple blog posts. I’m refusing to get tired of having blog posts on the 50s!
Well, Vogue Australia did this ultra elegant 50s feature in the September issue. It’s quite interesting to see that dresses from the Prada and Louis Vuitton Fall RTW collections have been featured over and over in most of the shoots.
For this feature, Model was Catherine McNeil and Photographer was Nicole Bentley.
