Marc chooses models – Stella Tennant and Kirsten Owen – for fall 2008 campaign

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on June 9th, 2008

Looks like the Marc Jacobs ad campaign star will be one role that’s not recurring for Victoria Beckham (unlike her Ugly Betty gig, which she will reprise).

Marc has chosen to fuel the comeback of the 90s supermodel by hiring Stella Tennant and Kirsten Owen for his fall 2008 advertising.

By Andrea Kiliany Thatcher on March 19th, 2008

Is it a medieval torture device or a belt? Depends how tight you cinch it we supposed.

The real question is: Yay or Nay?

To be fair we’ll show you what it looks like as part of an outfit after the jump.

Designer Pick of the Week: The Burberry Trench

By Andrea Thatcher on January 29th, 2008


We’re in the mood for classics with a twist today at Shiny (see the LaPrairie limited edition jeweled version of their covetted Skin Caviar Luxe Cream over at ShinyGloss!).

So we thought what’s more classic than the Burberry trench? And since this is our most decadent pick of the week – why not show you the most expensive one: the $2,495 gold leather version.

There are 27 versions currently available on the Web site, not to mention the made to order trench coat service available at Burberry stores. Lucky patrons are able to select the style, color, warmer, lining, and collar.


$22,000 Burberry alligator skin “Warrior” bag

By Andrea Thatcher on January 9th, 2008

2007 was definitely the year that the prices of it-bags got out of control but could 2008 be the year of the $100,000 bag? As the majority of sane people continue to be appalled by the average cost of a designer it-bag Burberry release an extreme priced bag. Made of alligator skin with metal stud detailing the new ‘Warrior’ tote comes in at a ridiculous $22,000.

As Linda Grant at the Guardian rightly points out, the most worrying thing about this is that it’s not the most expensive bag available. You can get a Hermés alligator tote for $55,000 (£28,000)! Seems that alligator is the way to go for ridiculously expensive glamour! How much higher can the prices really go?

Go behind the scenes of a surpringly colorful Burberry ad

By Andrea Thatcher on January 9th, 2008

There’s so much action and silly scenes of models like Agyness Deyn and Lily Donaldson in this video of this shoot for a Burberry advertising campaign, we think we need to examine the still images to really get a handle on the clothes.

To follow our lead, check out the images over on Catwalk Queen.

Yay or Nay Wednesday: Earmuffs

By Andrea Thatcher on November 28th, 2007


These just in: bordeaux quilted patent leather ear muffs from Burberry. Now there’s no question, if you’re going to wear ear muffs, these are the most fabulous ones to sport – but would you wear ear muffs? If you live somewhere like Georgia and don’t really have a winter, you might not even be able to contemplate such an accessory, but in colder climes it’s often tempting to wrap your entire head in a wool scarf just to get the mail. So, would you wear ear muffs?

Studded heels add punk-glam to any outfit

By Andrea Thatcher on October 18th, 2007

I fell in love with these studded Louboutin’s (above, left) as soon as I saw them on But at $1,150 they’re not exactly in my freelance writer price range. These Black Eleanora studded heels from Hollywould are fantastic, but at $745 they’re still way over budget. For an affordable version, try these Jeffrey Campbell heels from, only $100, which are very similar to the Burberry studded platform sandals (above, right), available for $940 at Nordstrom.

Burberry Manor bags enjoy a metallic touch

By Andrea Thatcher on October 3rd, 2007

Burberry handbags are stepping up to the metallic trend this season with the release of the Manor bag (available in both a standard and miniature version), along with a new line of rounded satchels and hobos. It’s a fresh take on the traditionally conservative brand that has brought us more conventional styles in seasons past. The Burberry quilted Manor bag ($1,395) distinguishes itself with dark nickel leather and silver-tone hardware. The top handles feature a key charm, and the front locks up tight with an extended tab closure and padlock detailing. The Burberry quilted mini Manor ($1,195) is similar in style, but a compact version at only 7.5″ high and 10″ wide. It’s a fresh take on the season’s frame bags in a classic Burberry plaid print.

Plaid wraps–expensive to cheap from Burberry to Urban Outfitters

By Andrea Thatcher on September 27th, 2007

While procrastinating at work, I came across this Check Wrap Coat by Burberry for $1,395 and realized I’d seen something just like it while shopping at Urban Outfitters the other day. At Urban the Lux Little Edie Cape is only $78. If you belted it, it would look so cute and really similar to the Burberry item. These plaid numbers are perfect for keeping you toasty and comfortable when the weather turns cold, while still looking very city chic.

Burberry sues Iconix Brand Group for ‘identical’ London Fog prints

By Andrea Thatcher on August 28th, 2007

Burberry Limited filed a lawsuit August 24 in Manhattan federal court against Iconix Brand Group (the company that purchased London Fog out of bankruptcy a year ago) for infringing on the British brand’s signature check design and style of advertising in London Fog’s four-page ad spread of Glamour magazine. The ad features celebrities such as Kevin Bacon, Teri Hatcher, and Cheryl Hines wearing the allegedly infringing check pattern. Burberry says that Iconix’s launch of the new London Fog brand with a trenchcoat that has a checked lining “is no accident,” and described how the spacing, thickness, squares and overlapping lines are identical to its own. But I don’t know, it’s a little hard to tell, because the London Fog ads are in black and white, but it doesn’t seem like the two patterns are all that similar. They’re both plaid, but the London Fog pattern looks different to me, like more of a squarish pattern. What do you think?
