The Investment


This season, make your investment piece Chanel’s gold sequined jacket (which I am completely in love with). Seen everywhere this month, including American and British Vogue. Wouldn’t you want the jacket all the editors love? Make it casual with a pair of jeans for day and throw it over a ball gown at night. You can’t go wrong. It may be a little pricey (£23,800), but it is guaranteed to be a show stopper, so don’t be afraid to go CRAZY!

On May 4th, something magical and inspiring is coming to the Metropolitan Museum. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, is an exhibition celebrating McQueen’s contribution to fashion. Featuring 100 ensembles and 70 accessories from the brilliantly disturbing designer ‘s 19 year career. From his Central St. Martins collection bought by the late Isabella Blow, to his final presentation held 2 weeks after his death.

Autumn/Winter 2010

The exhibition’s opening night will be held at the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Institute Gala on May 2nd, with honorary chairs Francois-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek and Co-Chairs Colin Firth, Stella McCartney and Anna Wintour. “His mind was extraordinary. His influence was everywhere. He inspired designers to become daring. Runway was not about a nice Beige suit, it was about expressing yourself and exploring the imagination” said Ms. Wintour about the tremendous, talented designer.

“He was not afraid to push the boundaries” said Alexandra Shulman, Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue. “He was a huge force in digital technology. He always wanted to investigate the new and did not want to play around with the old and excepted.”

I would suggest booking a flight to New York, if you are not there already, and experience this imaginative exhibition of a man with a mind extremely talented. I can kindly agree you will not go home dissapointed. However, if you can not make it, then why not buy the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty book out now. With interviews from Sarah Burton who was appointed Creative Director at Alexander McQueen after his death and Photos of the exhibition from Sølve Sundsbø. It’s time to celebrate a true legend.

Grace Hits 70


When you lay your eyes upon the editors letter in the April issue of American Vogue, you will soon discover that not only is it the 10th anniversary ‘shape issue’, but  it is also the month Creative Director Grace Coddington turns 70. Grace, who turns 70 on April 14th, has been with Vogue for over 40 years creating insprirng photo shoots, taking readers into a world of fun and make believe.

Grace Coddington

After being in a car accident at the age of 26, she first joined British Vogue under the Editor-in-Chief Beatrix Miller. She then moved to New York 19 years later to work for Calvin Klein. When Anna Wintour grabbed her powerful position at American Vogue, Grace called up and asked for a job. She worked behind the scenes for many many years. When The September Issue (movie about American Vogue) hit screens, her amazing creativity was revealed.

So Ms. Coddignton, we thank you for your amazing photo shoots and fabulous self. Happy Birthday.
