Ginger and red heads have, in the past, had a hard time of it. When Girls Aloud first came out, ginger head Nicola Roberts was quickly transformed into a brunette and her red roots were hurriedly touched up so we forgot about her traditional colourings.
However as the years have passed the red and ginger heads have come out on top with a huge range of celebrities opting to dye their locks this hue.
And it also seems that men are seeing the attraction with Jason Orange reportedly striking up a romance with red head Catherine Tate. We look at the lucky celebrities who are blessed with this hair colour naturally.
Vintage loving singer-songwriter Paloma Faith is collaborating with lingerie brand La Senza to design an exclusive range of vintage inspired lingerie and nightwear to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Care.
The designs include an emerald green playsuit (£30) and a halter-neck bra and French knickers set for £16. Paloma who is currently showing off her wonderfully playful sartorial flair at London Fashion Week has a distinct 1940’s style and is a style icon in the making.
The range hits stores from 1 October and will be available throughout Breast Cancer Awareness month with a donation from every sale will go to Breast Cancer Care.

Day 2 of London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 saw Pixie Geldof and Jamie Winstone in matching colour for House of Holland. Singer Ellie Goulding also made an appearance at HoH, while American socialite Olivia Palermo headed to Jaeger.
Saturday also had the grand dame of British fashion Vivienne Westwood on the schedule, attracting celebs left right and center. Sadie Frost looked stunning in a white shimmery gown, while fresh out of Celebrity Big Brother Pamela Anderson opted for a more low-key black number.
Paloma Faith – who appears to be everywhere this LFW – was snapped in less than three outfits one crazier than the other. I quite like her cherry fascinator though… Where can I get one!

London Fashion Week SS12 is in town which means the celebrities are out and about looking for style inspiration or simply wanting to be looked at.
Day 1 of London Fashion Week saw a skinny Peaches Geldof head to The Royal Opera House and the Sass & Bide show along with a colourful Paloma Faith (not sure if she’s taking the bird trend we’ve been seeing lately a tad too far) and singer Dionne Bromfield, the niece of Amy Winehouse. Diana Vickers and actress Bonnie Wright also graced the front row.

It’s a good time to be Beyonce right now. Fiercer and more on top of her fashion game than ever, everyone has been talking about her incredible headlining performance at Glastonbury on Sunday (if you didn’t see it look it up on Youtube RIGHT NOW – the woman was phenomenal).
Which is why yesterday’s launch party for her new album, 4, was a cool and eclectic mix of celebrities all there to mingle and celebrate their love of Miss B. From fashion designers to DJs and pop stars and beyond, everyone was there.
Representing the fashion world alongside Julien McDonald was Stella McCartney, looking sleek and graceful in a pretty and retro sequinned butterfly top with skinny jeans and a simple tan clutch. Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Parisian society girl, was also there looking stunning in an understated lace dress with her hair drawn back in a ballerina bun.
Less low-key was Paloma Faith in a theatrical feather-hat and a pair of the tiniest shorts we’ve ever seen, but are we surprised? No, not really. We love Paloma’s complete inability to dress appropriately for an event – it makes her a joy to write about. We have to say that she was flaunting some curves to rival Beyonce herself.
As for musical talent, there was a cool and diverse mix of different artists and styles present. We were surprised to see that Kills singer, Alisson Mosshart was there – who’d have known she was a Beyonce fan? (But then again, who isn’t?) Anyway, she looked cool in a low-key band shirt and black denim teamed with a slouchy denim-look shirt, an outfit that set off her shaggy black mane perfectly. Also there rocking a more laid-back look was up-and-coming Scottish DJ Yasmin, who’s already played Glasto this summer and is tipped to be a chart star, looking pretty and understated in some sawn-off dungarees and hot-pink wedges to set off her post-festival tan. We’re going to be watching this girl’s style from now on.
Meanwhile, pop’s divas were out in full force as well. Jade from the Sugababes was spotted at the launch looking amazing in an unbelievably short digital-printed cocktail dress with studded cut-out patterns. We have to find out where that dress is from! It worked perfectly against sexy evening makeup and some soft 70s-inspired waves.
And last but certainly not least, Alexandra Burke made an appearance wearing a simple knitted dress that gave a nod to the latest folk and 70s trends. A perfect summer outfit that rounds off today’s “Spotted” gallery perfectly. To see all the stars at Beyonce’s album launch party, check out the images above.
