music // the beards
17 Sep 2011
Thank goodness for technology that lets me keep up with Aussie music... I just saw this on my friend's Facebook wall and laughed a lot. This song is awesome and the guy is a great singer! I'll definitely have to check out their beardography.

dressing the stars exhibition pt 1 // bath fashion museum
14 Sep 2011
I went to Bath last month and I managed to catch this amazing costume exhibition at the Bath Fashion Museum. The detail on some of the period costumes was just amazing. Oh, and there were costumes that all my favourite English actors had worn: Johnny Depp, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Orlando Bloom, Judi Dench, Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson... you name it! There's going to be a lot of photos here! So many in fact, that I've decided to do two posts. There's just too many photos to include!
Orlando Bloom - Will Turner, Pirates of the Caribbean Johnny Depp - Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean Laurence Olivier in Hamlet (1948) The Last Emperor Joachim Phoenix - Commodus in Gladiator (2000) Charlotte Rampling - Lady Spencer in The Duchess (2008) Keira Knightley - Georgiana in The Duchess (2008) Robert Downey Jnr - Robert Merivale in Restoration (1995)
fashion night out // london
12 Sep 2011
I went to London's Fashion Night Out last night and stood 5th in line (thanks to Letizia who actually waited, while I arrived late after a meeting) outside Alexander McQueen to get my AMcQ key to potentially win a tote bag (I didn't). Then we strolled to Chanel to wait for a manicure and it was taking way too long and we had a talk by amazing fashion illustrator David Downton to get to! I'm so glad Letizia took me, because he was an incredible, engaging speaker and his work is simply stunning.
My Alexander McQueen key... that didn't win me anything.
Louis Vuitton. We didn't go in, but I liked the window display.
books // fashion bites
10 Sep 2011
It seems somewhat silly that I never do little book reviews since (a) I love books and (b) I work for a book publisher. Anyway, this gorgeous little hardback is full of hilarious quotes from the fashion people of the world, including my homegirl Chanel (of course!). It seems fitting I should write about this one since I went to London's Fashion Night Out last night.
So buy a copy for the fashionista in your life! I have a lot of fashionistas in my life... I can see stocking fillers for Christmas done already! We're also publishing Fairy Tales by Viktor & Rolf next month. That's definitely going to be on the Christmas list for friends!
