WAH Nails

I must confess, nails don’t usually come too high up in my beauty regime. Treated every now and again to a lick of paint (which usually is left to chip off ‘naturally’) experimentation is few and far between. Yet having noticed WAH Nails on Kingsland Road I have been converted to the wonders of nail art! And we’re not talking hideous, squared off fake ones . Oh no, WAH have taken nail design to a suitably fashionable level where Chanel C’s, animal prints, stripes, jewels and letters decorate our little pinkies. In-demand illustrator-of-the-moment, Jiro Bevis, has even designed a printable hand template so you can get creative and design your personal perfect nails. Here are a few of my faves from the blog

Emma Watson new face of Burberry

Burberry are really embracing their British roots at the moment, not only have they announced Burberry Prorsum will close London Fashion Week in September (they usually show in Milan) but they have unveiled their new advertising campaign, which features none other than budding fashionista, Hermione from Harry Potter! You can’t get more British than that. A boarding school? A posh English accent? It’s all so Enid Blyton. She really does look stunning in the pics.
Emma Watson has been on the front row of everyone from William Tempest to Giles Deacon and Chanel for the past few seasons. It seems her move from child actor to fashion favourite is coming on in leaps and bounds, with not only this Burberry campaign – but she posed for Sir Karl Lagerfeld for a shoot for Crash magazine. Karl doesn’t waste his time photographing just anybody.

J’adore Chanel Cruise ’09/10!!!

Oh Karl, you’ve done it again. His Cruise Collection is just purely amazing. Inspired by Grande Dame Coco herself, with the show taking place upon a beach in Venice. I mean look at it, the setting, the clothes, the lights….

Check out more pics from the collection here.

"OH HIYA NICOLE!"

What with Audrey tiring herself out chasing boys around speeding locomotives and gazing serenely into the distance, I think the time has come to familiarise ourselves with the TOP OF THE DOGS of all Chanello flicks! Oh Baz how you spoil us!

Audrey Tautou for Chanel No.5

Here is the exquisite new advert for Chanel No.5 perfume, starring French actress, Audrey Tautou. She replaces Nicole Kidman as the face of the brand and was seemingly chosen as she is starring as Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel in the upcoming movie, ‘Coco Avant Chanel,’ which documents Coco’s life in the years before she hit the big time. It should be fantastic, for the outfits alone, which Karl Lagerfeld supervised the creation of, ensuring the house of Chanel is properly represented on screen.

The advert is directed by Jean Pierre Jeunet, who previously directed Audrey in her breakthrough film, Amélie.
