LFW: saying “Fabulous” In a British Accent

Hiya Poutlings

Hope you’re all doing faaaabulous!! Anyway, anyone been keeping up with London Fashion week? Well, I have, but very briefly.

Who are the front row fame ho’s at this Fashion Week? Well, its certainly not lived up to the celebrity drenched hub that is NYC.

Even New York this year wasn’t up to it’s usual star-spotting standard. This year was just dull in having couples who add up to one mega star between the two of them, I mean Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas or even Kim Krapdashian and Kanye West *vomit* I’d much rather have a Gwen Stafani or a Tilda Swinton over those couples, you know, people who really are known and matter substantially more? Yes. Those!

London, on the other hand has been even more disappointing. A group of “It” fashionaista models, Laura Bauley, Poppy Delevigne, bloggers and self-affected children, Alexa Chung, Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof… oh and of course, Lady Gaga jumping up and down looking for attention, again… a bit like an annoying little dog, but worse.

The highlights of the lowlights so far:

At Henry Holland, Alexa Chung tells the other spiffingly fabulous fashion twigs how she doesn’t even know why anyone is interested in her.

Kelly Osbourne interrupts and offers advice on how to wear sunglasses and speak in two accents at once. And say “all fashion” all the time on TV.

At Burberry, Anna Wintour having a old girls meet ‘n greet with photographer Mario Testino. She actually looks her age in this snake print suit from the cruise ship boutique.

Dita Von Teese starts an impromptu outdoor burlesque by sexily dropping her umbrella then remembers she’s wearing corseting that renders her incapable of even scratching her head and waitis a knight in a shining retro tuxedo to save her.

Who ever the hell Tali Lennox is (I guess by the name she is Annie’s kid – maybe!), I like her Burberry Prorsum swag.

Who ever the hell this chick is needs to go back to her struggling artists loft and brush her hair…

Samantha Cameron wonders why she can’t sit with a bitchy fashion blogger or a child of celebrity.

Child of American music royalty, Daisy Lowe shows no sign of her step mother, Gwen Stefani’s style, grace or genuine rock ‘n roll attitude.

14 year old Marc Jacobs’ muse Elle Fanning shows up to Topshop Unique straight from school… Aaah, does it make you miss how glamourous school uniform can be? hahha. NAAT.

Olivia Palermo does it up proper fashion, like also at Unique. She has an uncanny ability to make you want to buy clothes that will make you look like you are wearing a black plastic bin bag.

…well that’s all for now folks.

Style Watch : Princess Margaret

Heya Poutlings!

Anoter royal post from me.

Don’t read this in that tone of voice, rather grab a cup of tea and join me on my post into some royal history!

I often find myself looking at pictures from the past Diamond Jubilee, mainly of Dutchess Kate and what she was wearing but something tweaked in my mind that someone was missing, the most sassy Royal of them all, is not with us anymore, Princess Margaret.

For those that do not know, Princess Margaret was the Queen’s younger sister…

Their father King George VI described Elizabeth as his “pride” and Margaret as his “joy”. Princess Margaret has been famously rebellious over the years and despite her perpetually terrible image in the press – she was seen as a royal waste of money, she remains a style icon to this day, inspiring Vivenne Westwood and Burberry’s amazing SS06.

As young girls, The Queen and Princess Margaret were close, neither girls were heirs to throne. It wasn’t until she was six years old, in 1936, that King Edward abdicated his position so that he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

After that, everything changed for the princesses.

Elizabeth was suddenly the next in line, and her public duties become of the upmost importance. She had to represent honour, discipline and grace. Margaret, however, went to a different route and became a well known seductive socialite.

NEW LOOK FOR NUNS INCLUDES SOME CASHMERE

With a tiny 18-inch waist, a fierce witty intelligence, and penchant for sophisticated finery, she was well known within social circles as being fun and flirty. She was a “must have” party guest, and thrived off the thrill of meeting new people. I doubt highly that she was ever  “WOO GIRL“.

PRINCESS MARGARET ON HER CARRIBBEAN TOUR

Her passionate personality often got her into trouble! In 1953 she was firmly in love with a divorced equerry and sought to marry him. The soon-to-be Queen asked her to wait a year, as the press storm surrounding this controversy was blowing negativity strongly in her direction, instead, she gave up her affair and married photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones. Her many affairs and lovers soon disintergrated her relationship with her husband and they were divorced in 1978.

However, the progessive attitude she had towards everything, from travel to 1960’s fashion, left a distinctive mark upon society! Whether it was positive or negative, everyone that met her had a strong opinion of her.

Will you channel her style to get in touch with your inner royal? She’s been renound over the years for wearing sleveless shirts and waisted skirts, satin dresses, statement jewellery and that all important royal blue.

RIP PRINCESS MARGARET

21 August 1930 – 9 February 2002.

Shoe Porn : Shoes fit for a Princess

Hey Pouters!

Do you have a dream to one day own a pair of Louboutin’s and live happily ever after? Well you better get counting all those coins in your piggy banks!!

Christian Louboutin has unveiled his new interpretation of Cinderella’s glass slipper in celebration of Disney’s re-release of the famous story on DVD and Blu-ray in Autumn in the states (our spring). News of this collaboration was first announced in April.

Cinderella is not only an iconic character when it comes to beauty, grace and fairytale love, but also shoes. Her character and her story dictacted the design to me, it was all there in the pages and words of this tale.”

The princess worthy design features heels covered in crystals, two delicate, shimmering butterfly embellishments and naturally, any Louboutin lover would know, his signature red soles.

The slipper is a magic wand of transformation, which cojures confidence, beauty and love. The dream is a major factor in my language of design. There are no limits in the world of fantasy and there is always a happily ever after.”

Aw, isn’t that so artsy-fartsy of him to say, he should of added “REMORTGATE YOUR HOMES IF YOU WANT TO WEAR THESE, MWAHAHAHA!” Haha, bad Fi, Now, I am not sure what I was expecting from Louboutin on this project, but I don’t think it was this – however, the shoes are wow! I’d hate to lose one, wouldn’t you?
