Esquire Magazine – Singular Suit Exhibition

From today – until 31st August – you can pop to Somerset House for an exhibition that is essentially promoting Esquire magazine’s all-important September issue. Said exhibition looks to be very interesting as it features 18 suit collaborations between designers and artists including Graeme Fidler of Aquascutum with Antony Gormley and Donatella Versace with James Clar, which is pictured above and features flashing light sabres and takes its inspiration from the movies. Other desingers taking part include John Galliano and Giorgio Armani.

Peter Andre – Behind Closed Doors

“Behind Closed Doors” – Peter Andre. Music Video directed by FauxTales (Stephen Lally & Simon Allen) from FauxTales on Vimeo.

Here it is!! The aforementioned Andre video directed by the super-talented FauxTales! Luckily my pic made the papers as it is in fact only my arm that makes its music video debut here. Roberto gets a full frontal though, amazing!

Taking it’s inspiration from 70’s fashion photography and 80’s Duran Duran style videos, not that I’m being biased, but this is a fantastic direction for newly single Andre to take his image. As for the video narrative, models who are perfect on the outside and evil on the inside….. hhhmmm, so what does go on BEHIND CLOSED DOORS?? You’re never gonna know.
Or probs just gonna have to wait for the magazine deal….

Freestyle Magazine Launch

So, last night, next to that big red bus near the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, Freestyle Magazine had a little launch party, complete with rooftop – well van-top – DJ’s and a frisby competition / display. Said frisby comes free with the debut issue and features a design by excellent fashion duo Eley Kishimoto.

The bi-annual magazine fits perfectly inside the frisby – yes, a round magazine – and has everything from fashion editorials and pages of monkey faces to delicious cake recipes. It has a crafty, whimsical feel, a little like recently departed (in print form anyway) Amelia’s Magazine, except not as girlie.

You can grab a copy at RD Franks, Magma, Borders etc. Except not Borders on Oxford Street as that branch is shutting down. Terrible news. It’s been bought out by New Look. Even worse news...

Tilda’s Been Busy

Not only has it been announced that Tilda Swinton is the new face of the womenswear AND menswear S/S 2010 collections for Pringle of Scotland but she has also found time to lend her dulcet tones to the new Patrick Wolf
album, The Bachelor, where she apparently acts as ‘the voice of hope.’

Couture Wedding Dresses A/W 09

Couture shows traditionally end with a phantasmagoric wedding dress. Here’s my pick of this season’s:

Haute Couture A/W 09

With the economic downturn still very much on everyones minds, the couture shows were a slightly muted down affair this season. Mainly in terms of show presentation rather than reflected in the clothes though. Here’s a selection of my favourites:


Key trends for A/W are the late decadent ’80s and early 90’s. Hard to work in the dubious trends of the early 90’s into a coututre show you would think – but obviously Karl manages it with his draping panels seen coming down the back of the dresses.


The bar is set very high for couture from the House of Dior. Christain himself set the path and its been brilliantly followed by John Galliano in recent years. For this season he has embraced bright colours and stripped the clothes down to their minimum, revealing the underwear, giving the collection a Renaissance feel.



I love John Paul Gaultier, not only because he carved himself a serious fashion career while presenting Eurotrash on Channel 4 but because he always has so much fun – and this couture collection is just brilliant. The vague theme being Hollywood glamour throughout the decades, John gives us a beautiful mixture of inventive ideas.

Armani Prive:
As the face of Armani underwear, it seems Posh Spice has been used as the hair inspiration for this season’s Armani Prive collection. All the models looked suspiciously like Victoria Beckham wearing outfits that we will no doubt see her in very soon. The trouser reigned supreme at Armai Prive.

Mysterious Girls….

Just being in the new Peter Andre music video ‘Behind Closed Doors‘ – above.

Taking a leaf out of Celine’s book, dressing up is fun and we did it to the max last week. We’re just casually hanging out backstage on the new Peter Andre music video – below. Yes, that is a trident. It’s not everyday you appear in The Sun and The Mail….

The Elizabethan ruff and tranny make-up may well become my new look.

Celine Dion Loves Dressing Up

This is wrong on too many levels…..
Who’s Bad Celine? Errmmm…… We’ll keep it rhetorical. I think it’s for the best…
Not content with doing a freaky Michael Jackson impression. Celine has also tackled a Madonna impression in her time:
Tres random.
