Karl Lagerfeld says Pippa Middleton “struggles” with her looks. Do you agree?

By Andrea Petrou on August 1st, 2012

We heart Karl Lagerfeld and respect him for everything he’s done for Chanel.

However, sometimes the outspoken designer says things we just can’t agree with.

His latest outburst has been directed at Pippa Middleton, with Lagerfeld claiming she should “only show her back” as she “struggles” with her looks.

He told The Sun that he didn’t like Pippa’s face, before moving on to praise her sister – the Duchess of Cambridge – for her “romantic” beauty and “nice silhouette”.

Do you agree with the designer’s comments or do you think Pippa is equally as stunning as Kate?

Mario Testino pushed for Gisele Bundchen to have a modelling career

By Andrea Petrou on October 6th, 2011

Mario Testino “fought” for Gisele Bundchen.

The legendary photographer says he saw something special in the Brazilian supermodel as soon as he met her when she was a rising star even though others didn’t.

He told Grazia magazine: “When I started, Bruce Weber was the big star photographer, so all the models were the ones he liked; sporty and outdoorsy. I couldn’t find anyone, so I would go to the street looking for people who suited my aesthetic. When I met Gisele in New York, I liked her immediately. No one was using her. I fought for her.”

Although Mario, 56, is one of the world’s most sought-after snappers, he still worries it could all be taken away from him.

He said: “It wasn’t until this September that I felt I had finally arrived. I had six covers and 180 pages of editorial. For once, I felt I was accepted everywhere.

“But I still worry that nobody will call me for the next job.”

David Beckham is to turn his hand to underwear design

By emilyborrett on September 22nd, 2011

David Beckham is following the footsteps of his wife Victoria, who’s now pretty much a fully-fledged designer in New York, and turning his hand to design himself – but instead of sportswear, which is what we’d expect the guy to be designing, he’s actually designing underwear after appearing in a campaign for Emporio Armani briefs.

And you thought he’d be designing the same kinds of tighty-whities he’s always seen smouldering in on billboards, you’re wrong – he’s actually designing old fashioned long-johns. Apparently David Beckham looooves a pair of old-school grandpa-style long johns! Who the hell knew!

When explaining his unusual choice of design for the new collection, David said: “I sometimes wear them to go to sleep. They’re very cool.” Bless him.

A source close to David spoke out about the footballer’s new underwear plans: “David is 35 and knows he won’t be playing soccer forever. But he’s an icon for men all over the world and he wears pants like no one can – so it makes sense for him to launch his own.”

Well, we’re glad that Victoria is around to help him out with his designs and try to sex up long-johns a little bit. We don’t want all our boyfriends to follow suit and start going to bed looking like our grandpa.

Christian Louboutin is releasing a style book about his designs

By emilyborrett on September 22nd, 2011

For anyone who has a little bit of an Achilles heel when it comes to, well, heels, there’s a new glossy hardback coming out that you’ll definitely want on your coffee table as the legendary shoe designer Christian Louboutin has revealed he’s planning to release a book on his iconic designs.

Christian Louboutin is like the holy grail of designer heels with his legendary red-bottomed soles, so we can’t wait to take a peek at the new book (currently it’s missing a title, but hopefully Christian will find the time to think one up).

The book is planned to be divided into six chapters, with the first showing the designer’s work earliest in his career, including pieces that created for Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent and the other chapters showing his inspirations, the international stores, and gushing contributions from some of his loveliest, most famous friends – including Dita Von Teese and Kristen Scott Thomas.

We hope it’s out soon – we want it to go riiiiiiight to the top of our Christmas list IMMEDIATELY.

Cheryl Cole wants to create her own fashion line

By emilyborrett on September 21st, 2011

What is it about celebrities wanting to have a little bit of a go at absolutely everything these days? First we have Katie Price turning her hand to editor as she launches a magazine that is, hilariously, all about her, and now Cheryl Cole has revealed that her new shoe collection has inspired her to turn to fashion design.

Cheryl, who’s just launched her new shoe collection with the website StylistPick.com, said when asked about a potential foray into fashion: “Do you know what? I wouldn’t rule it out, actually. I have loved designing these shoes. I haven’t enjoyed a project so much in a long time. So, yes, it might be the start of something.”

To me there’s something mildly annoying about celebrities trying to turn their hands to creative industries such as fashion – other popular celebrity sidelines being acting, writing novels and perfumes – as if all the auto-tuning and clever styling that these people have has made them suddenly believe their own hype. Or am I just being mean about Cheryl Cole? Maybe I am just grumpy today.

Who knows if Cheryl has it in her to be a fashion designer. Maybe, just maybe, she will be like Victoria Beckham and amaze us. But then again, maybe it will just be crap.

Roberto Cavalli will launch a new collection of homewares

By emilyborrett on September 21st, 2011

The legendary fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is turning his magic hands from fashion to the home, as he’s creating a collection of furniture, wallpaper, flooring and home textiles in his iconic animal prints that he’s so well known for. I can’t actually imagine anything more wonderful, trashy and glam than Cavalli home decor – can you?

Roberto, who is famous for his glamorous and sexy European designs, said about his new homewares project: “The home and the objects that surround us reflect our lifestyle. The fantasy, memories of a trip.we are always looking for new inspirations to have objects and atmospheres around us where we feel at ease. [This collection stems from] my personal wish to share with those who love me the joy of living my fashion, my creativity, my philosophy and my style also in the world of home decorating.”

The homewares are going to be sold worldwide, with distribution in Europe, the United States and Asia. I don’t think I’ll be able to resist leopardprint towels and wallpaper for long – it’s only a matter of time til I get bitten by the Cavalli fashion bug..

Victoria Beckham’s new collection channels her “inner girl”

By emilyborrett on September 21st, 2011

Victoria Beckham has revealed that her new collection for her affordable diffusion line, Victoria by Victoria Beckham, was inspired by her “inner girl”. Um, Victoria, you know you actually are a girl, right? Maybe you’ve been around all-boys for too long..

Victoria has turned out to actually be  a very accomplished fashion designer – so we’re all for her keeping up the good work with a new collection for her diffusion range, which is cheaper than her main ready-to-wear line. The singer-turned-designer said: “It’s definitely channelling my inner girl. I started this collection before I was pregnant and the doctors told me at first I was having a boy. So mainly I wanted to do dresses that I wanted, that weren’t ‘out there’ – and at the same time show that, contrary to what most people think, I do have a sense of humour.” Yeah, you tell ‘em!

If you’re wondering why it’s taken Madam Beckham so long to create this second diffusion collection after her first one, it’s because she’s a perfectionist and was waiting for the best. She told Britain’s Grazia magazine: “It has taken ages to get this together because it took a long time to find a factory that could deliver the right quality at the right price. Otherwise we’d have done it sooner.”

New clothing line inspired by “Gossip Girl” to be launched this weekend

By emilyborrett on September 21st, 2011

For anyone who’s obsessively followed the fabulous lives of Serena, Blair and co in Gossip Girl should be excited to know, there’s a new outlet for your fandom! Because a clothing line inspired by the hit television show is going on sale this weekend in the States.

The new clothing range, which is being created by Romeo and Juliet Couture with a little help from Warner Bros, is apparently going to be all designs that the characters would definitely wear, including girlish chiffon dresses, playful novelty knitwear and embellished tops. With prices spanning from $80 to $200, it’s actually all very reasonable – now all we need to do is fly out to NYC, as the collection’s going on sale in swanky department stores such as Kitson and Saks Fifth Avenue.

We’ve always secretly dreamed of dressing like Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, so this is going to be an exciting launch to see what Romeo and Juliet Couture come up with. If you want to check out the label’s current collection to get a feel for what the new Gossip Girls designs could be like, check out their new Fall 2011 Collection here.

Emma Watson likes natural beauty

By emilyborrett on September 21st, 2011

The Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has admitted that in the past she’s worn far too much makeup – so now, it’s all about the natural look for her. (Though it’s extremely easy to say you prefer natural beauty when you yourself have one of the most perfect faces in Hollywood, eh Emma?)

Emma said: “The funny thing about me is that I do have a lot of products – I’ve always loved make-up and its ability to transform you. But I don’t actually wear a lot of it, so there is an irony that I own so much of it but wear so little. But I do love beauty products. But wearing too much make-up has been my biggest beauty faux-pas. I truly, truly believe that beauty is something that comes from within. You can only really look beautiful if you feel beautiful on the inside. It shows through your face, the way you move and the way you hold yourself.”

Aww, all together girls – YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.

And Emma’s best tip for outer beauty (the inner bit we’ll have to figure out ourselves)? “Don’t over-pluck your eyebrows and always take your make-up off before you got to bed.” Sound advice indeed.

Alexa Chung is dating Theo from Hurts

By emilyborrett on September 15th, 2011

Alex Turner had better get back on the dating scene soon, because his newly exed love Alexa Chung is already in a sneaky relationship with Theo Hutchcraft from the electro Brit band Hurts.

We have to admit we were a bit choked when we found out that Alexa and Alex had called it a day on their relationship – fashion’s best couple!- but we like Theo’s style, so maybe he will be a reasonable substitute for Miss Chung.

A source leaked to the Sun newspaper: “It’s still early days but Theo is really keen on Alexa. They met at the American music festival Coachella in April and Theo has been spending a lot of time in New York, where Alexa lives. They share the same interests – music and fashion – and get on really well. But the relationship is still raw and they’re not putting too much pressure on each other to make it work at this stage.”

Awww, you guys. Now your relationship isn’t a secret anymore, can we see some his’n’hers matching denim outfits, please? Thanks.
