Kate Moss by Frederique Veysset, Paris 1992 Allure magazine
I’ve been a very lame blogger the last few weeks… this may continue until early January. Please return in then when posts will be back to normal! I hope you all have a great time bringing in 2011. Thankyou to everyone that has visited my blog this year.xxx
Grab your 3D glasses you got on your trip to see Avatar and watch the beautiful Kate Moss in this 3D film for AnOther Magazine with Baillie Walsh. Bjork looks like she’s been lucky enough to wear a piece from Bea Szenfeld’s collection “Sur la Plage” that I posted about earlier in the week. Ohh I look forward to getting my mitts on this months issue.
Watch the film HERE

Hello there, yes it’s been a while. I have been ill and couldn’t find anything that inspired me. So yesterday as I drank out of my funny tash mug (below), (which any tea or coffee lover should invest in right now. By them here for Peter Ibruegger) i managed to find some perfect blogging material.
and on the other side
So yeh, I was drinking my tea and reading some old editions of The Face magazine which I have inherited from my dear dad and had to share some of my findings. The following images are scanned from the 10th Birthday issue June 1990, hopefully you can read the text in the clippings, it’s work the eye strain!
Above left to right, Converse Rear Entry (hee hee). Yeh, that’s right Bono was just as much of a bozo then as he is now.
Andrea Oliver shaking her thang! Neneh Cherry in all her loveliness!! Here’s some more
…441 episodes later it’s still streaming on to our screens.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s design sketches and some insight into that amazing corset.
Lady Gaga who? Madge at her best (below) and far cry from those mingin’ valour trackies she seems to enjoy wearing so much(above)!!
Below. Stunning Naomi Campbell doing what she does best, no, not thumping her many minions! Check out her “legal issues” list on Wikipedia, it’s staggering and highly amusing!

Weird to see so many cigarette advertising campaigns throughout the magazine.
Later this week I will post some images from the July 1990 issue including “The Third Summer of Love”, the iconic first shoot of an innocent looking Kate Moss aged 15 shot by Corinne Day and also an article about something called a CD walkman!!
R.I.P Lee Alexander McQueen. A very sad day for the fashion industry and anyone with an appreciation the beautifully theatrical and imaginative clothes and concepts which the fashion designer made over his highly successful career.
Below are some of my favorites.
Dame Vivienne Westwood has colaborated with Cole & Son to produce a beautiful collection of wallpaper based on some of her most celebrated designs including her 1997 Spring/ Summer Cut-Out Lace from the ‘I am Expensive’ collection, which looks stunning. The Trompe l’oeil Drape (below) is very flambouant and screams Westwood. As expected there is a very British feel running through the collection, an example of this style is the Union Jack print which has all the attitude that is expected from Westwood.
“It is good when my ideas get carried over into other artistic media. This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper”
The Union Jack print reminded me of Mario Testino’s beautiful October 2008 shoot for Vogue where Kate Moss was dressed in recycled flags… How could you forget it!
