Russian Dolls

Miroslava Duma, ex Russian Harper’s editor and street style star is top of my fashion envy list.  With a wardrobe to die for, this girl knows how to dress!  The likes of Chanel (she is an ambassador), YSL and Stella McCartney are everyday staples for the Russian fashionista.

However, there is more to the street style starlet than you might think.  As Digital Director of TSUM, Russia’s most premium department store (think a modern Harrods), her latest project has called upon street style star Elena Perminov, designer Ulyana Sergeenko and Miroslave herself to take centre stage modelling the stores various AW13 collections.

The finished images look pretty amazing, not that we would expect anything less.  Needless to say the Russian’s have arrived and honestly, they couldn’t look better….

Men’s Collections

Men’s Collections London is quickly becoming one of the most influential Menswear weeks of the year!  Burberry returned from Milan and newcomers such as JW Anderson created one of Men’s Collections most high profile weeks to date.  On the catwalk, colour was one of the key trends from strong primary’s to summery pastels, sketched graphics seen at Christopher Kane were also popular and designers such as Jonathan Saunders continued to push boundaries with unique fabrics.  However, it wasn’t just the catwalk that attracted attention, from Florence to London and Milan; the menswear street chic on show was unmissable.  Tommy Ton amongst others, captured everything from dapper suits, to the chiselled models and the women literally rocking the ‘boy meets girl’ trend……Apparently Menswear really is where it’s at!

Cara’s Model Moment

From exciting editorials to various front covers and high profile campaigns; each year there is one face, one model that dominates the pages of our magazines, street style blogs and catwalks.  Step forward British model Cara Delevingne!!  Since her debut for Burberry in 2011, Cara Delevingne; has walked for a variety of high profile designers, appeared in numerous magazine editorials and bagged campaigns from H&M to Chanel!!  It’s no wonder then that her face is everywhere and to end the year in style, she was named ‘Model of the Year’ 2012 by the BFC.

By breaking the Burberry mould through a variety of diverse roles and appearing in publications from The Journal to Style.com; Cara has far surpassed my expectations and shown that she undoubtedly has what it takes!  Not shy of being papped, she has won over fashion critics Worldwide with her relaxed, Tomboy style and got a reputation for being fun and easy going.  With a new campaign for DKNY just released, being named as the face set to launch accessory brand My Crazy Scrunchie and fashion month just around the corner; I can only imagine 2013 will be another stella year for Miss Delevingne!!

So, as 2012 comes to a close here are some of my favourite images of Cara:

Tangerine Dream

Every season there is a statement colour that stands out, whether you like it or not – it will be worn!  So far, the S/S13 shows have given us a variety of looks from the Sicilian beauties at Dolce&Gabbana to the ‘light’ comeback of the ultimate minimalist, Jill Sander.  The colour du jour?  Tangerine of course!!  A strong, bold (I’d go as far to say) intense Tangerine, relieving front rowers from the soft pastels of S/S12.  Being a lover of brights and print, I for one couldn’t be happier!!  From fluorescent lips, to full length gowns and THAT Victoria Beckham blazer; this Tangerine demands to be noticed and so far it’s definitely got everyone’s attention!
