Daily shot of one thing I like
The bigger the pom-pom, the better. From the fury poms to the Mickey Mouse ears, here’s a selection of the best playful chunky-knit beanies to keep you warm and toasty this season. They suit every style either you’re sporty, elegant, classy or risky, these are the cool kids of the block that could brighten up your outwear outfits. Click HERE to read my full piece on The Independent.
This, of course, resumes in one great fury pom-pom that has to come back to head very soon….Last year’s favourite: my big orange fury pom-pom…
Only Kate Moss would look like this on a cover of the men’s title. Sexy elegance and stunning photos as the supermodel poses for Playboy’s 60th anniversary edition wearing the iconic bunny ears and a black leotard, with of course, the white fury bunny tail on her bottom. Her artful semi-naked pictures take over 18 pages of the magazine.
Get a glimpse of the photoshoot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot with these images. Come on, you even feel like borrowing the bunny ears from the first picture for your next masquerade ball! I’m obsessed with that first photo. It’s SO sensually classy.
There’s nothing like a nice wool Fedora hat for winter, and if it comes with a special feather touch even better. For long I’ve been trying hats in shops in the search of a new winter favourite accessory, but none of them convinced me enough. If it wasn’t the shape, size or details, it was the unmatchable price tag. So, surprinsingly and totally unexpected I walked pass by Accessorize and found THIS! Tried it on and felt it was the one. Made of 100% wool it was a bargain.
So 31st October it is. Happy Halloween!!!
For those of you celebrating Halloween tonight, watching horror classics, scaring kids knocking at your door for trick or treat and wondering how to make a terrifying pumpkin, here I made a video for you guys last year with some carving tools and my first ever pumpkin. In case you missed it or forgot the steps, just like I did, here you go. Make yours in only two minutes:
Also, out of ideas on what to wear for the weekend Halloween parties? CLICK HERE to see a gallery of celebrity Halloween outfits I put together for The Independent, including a decapitated Marie Antoniette by Alexa Chung, a latex Catwoman by Kim Kardashian and a naked human body by Heidi Klum. I’ve struggled to decide what to wear but I have a very silly costume for the weekend, which I will of course show you very soon.
There’s nothing better than an improvised road trip out of town. On Sunday (yesterday), I went to the spectacular city of Bath for just few hours, but just enough to switch my head off for a bit… With a distance of only two hours drive from London, it’s the perfect escape from the busy capital that never stops! You really feel like you are somewhere else.
With a peculiar architecture that has been preserved for thousands of years since the Roman first came to England, its undoubtedly a breath of fresh air. Not mentioning the Roman Baths and its natural thermal waters that impress visitors with the steam and bubbles that still come from them. Just wonder why they are not opened for a quick splash, I did touch the water and it’s not that hot! Actually, it should be turned into a natural exclusive spa, right? Not sure of how clean would it be though… Talking about spas, Bath is known for its wonderful spas. Its most popular one is the four floors building, Thermae. With two thermal water pools, one of them located in an opened rooftop with a beautiful view of the town, jacuzzi and the most amazing aromatic steam rooms, it makes you feel in heaven during your stay. A 100% recommended destination for a day, or two.
Although I switched off, I didn’t forget about FashionInsideOut, so took these pics and videos for you guys! All taken with my iPhone and couple others with the GoPro (camera on holiday), so do get a glimpse and enjoy! There’s always something to look forward on a gloomy Monday…
You might be aware of who’s the new face of Chanel No.5… Yes, the one and only Marilyn Monroe. The fashion and beauty house recently discovered a recording from 1960 of an interview that the then editor of Marie Claire magazine did to Marilyn, in which she talks about the classic fragrance and reveals it was the only thing she wore to sleep.
As the screen princess will appear in the new print and TV campaigns, I ‘ve put a gallery together for The Independent of moden Marilyns -those celebrities from the 21st century that have tried to followe her iconic style of blond curls and red lipstick. But, reality is there’s only one Marilyn. Check out the full story and gallery HERE!
Michelle Williams, Christina Aguilera, Scarlett Johansson and Lady Gaga are between those that admire and imitate Marilyn’s famous style. See more HERE
