My Swell Belle

Naty Chabanenko has been one of my fav models since she stared in the Wildfox 'Vive la France' campaign. In this shoot she goes pinup in retro inspired swimwear by Dolce & Gabbana, Tsumori Chisato, Rochas, Prada, Marios Schwab, Chanel and Versace to name a few.

Apparantly next summer the teeny bikini is OUT! Full pieces and high waisted bottoms are now going to be well styled and far more easily available.

Diamonds are Forever

With the release of the new James Bond movie 'Skyfall' it seems only fitting that Wildfox pays tribute with a retro James Bond themed collection. 'Diamonds are Forever' is the new collection of Wildfox 2013 swimwear which displays both British and American patriotic prints. The lovely Cintia Dicker stars in the shoot as a 'bad-ass bond spy'.

They describe the new collection as “A totally American girl who lives for traveling. She dreams of England and hotel rooms, she loves flowers and diamonds, and she loves decadence! She’s a Bond Girl, a 60’s bombshell who dyes her hair all shades of colors and meets beautiful men everywhere she goes.  She wakes up at six in the morning to catch the sunrise and does laps in her giant, turquoise pool. She is always ready to pack her bags and fly to another country, stay in another hotel, she travels lightly, packs bikinis, sparkly dresses and beach cover ups. This girl always has her swimsuit in her purse or her glove compartment, she's always ready for her next big adventure, and she's always ready to make new friends... wherever she goes.”

The collection also showcases an assortment of other beach accessories such as beach towels, pants, cover-ups, rompers and oversized tee's. A great item is the best friend beach towel made for two.

WOW I love Wildfox

WOW! This stunning collection, named Virus, is the baby of Czech designers Zdenek Vacek and Daniel Posta (Zorya). The two studied the chemical and biologic processes when different objects are attacked by alien substances (a Virus).

The collection consists of beautiful entwined chunky rope pieces with clusters of crystal gathering and creeping along the twists and folds. What a unique way to show the beauty that can be extracted from a biological process.

Dont you just love it?

Glam in Gold

As much as I really dislike Kristen I have to praise this stunner of a dress. Kristen wore the dress for the LA premier of the final Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn Part 2. Designed by Zuhair Murad the dress is lingerie inspired in soft gold with sun ray panelling and sheer lace. I love how she dressed it up with matching nailpolish, vampish red lipstick and minimal jewellery.

Well done Kristen, a nice break away from your usual trainer chic look :p

You Lazy Oaf

I dont know what it is about this brand but I just love their quirky and slightly kitch style. Lazy Oaf is a print and illustration based company who have a huge cult following among the street scene in the UK. They sell clothing, jewellery, accessories, stationary and art for men and women.

Lazy Oaf has said "19 Fouberts Place (in East London) is where you will find the finest selection of Oaf wear, including exclusive limited edition prints. The shop regularly produces events and exhibitions to introduce new collections and products to customers and super fans. Previous events have included the The Lazy Oaf Drawing Club that created a drawing frenzy amongst fellow illustrators and exhibited contributions from drawers worldwide"

I love this fun and colourful 'SAY WHAT' dress :)

So head on down and be prepared to have your minds blown!

Victoria's Secret

The VS Angels were out in full force again in one of the most extravagant shows they have put on yet. The angels were joined with performances by Rihanna, Justin Beiber and Bruno Mars
The show featured 5 themes namely Dangerous Liaisons, Calendar Girls, Pink Is Us, Silver Screen Angels, and Angels in Bloom, while the musicians performed two songs each.
The show featured crazy headpieces, 26 pairs of wings, Nicholas Kirkwood heels, trapeze artists, lit up circus rings, acrobats and a $2.5 million fantasy bra worn by Alessandra Ambrosio.

Ri-Ri's Performance

The fantasy bra
Love this Marie Antoinette Style outfit

An interesting result of the show was a Native American Indian replica outfit worn by
Karlie Kloss, which cause a huge number of complaints with people saying it is disrespectful to the Native Indian attire.

"We are sorry that the Native American headdress replica used in our recent fashion show has upset individuals," a statement from Victoria's Secret read. "We sincerely apologise, as we absolutely had no intention to offend anyone. Out of respect, we will not be including the outfit in any broadcast, marketing materials nor in any other way."

This has happened once before when VS previously came under fire for fetishing a Geisha outfit, an item it withdrew from its website after it was deemed offensive too. Naughty naughty!!

The show will be available to watch on December 4th until then we just have these gorgeous pics to look at
