Here's our girl Lou Doillon in the new ss10 Vanessa Bruno video, directed again by St├ęphanie Di Giusto. Compared to last season it's more playful. Lou seems fearless and I really like that about her.p.s. OH MY GOD THEM THANGS IS BACK UP! There is a God.

SCRAPS...

*Ah, Vodianova. As you know, I generally don't concern myself much with supermodels, but since watching this video on CNN a while ago, Natalia Vodianova is possibly the only one I might concern myself with wondering what it's like to be her. From the whole perspective of going from being a poverty stricken child, selling fruit on the street in Russia to where she is now. (And now I also need to

"I also loved a trench in a large, blurry, almost broken-pattern leopard print. That’s a keeper. The ringmaster, Alber Elbaz, made reference to a Parisian woman who perennially dresses in leopard prints, and so there was at least one head-to-toe ensemble."Anyone remember the leopard lady? I saw her in March 2006, The Sartorialist snapped her in February 2007, Alber Elbaz is using her as

WINTER BLUES...

Thursday, 14 January 2010
Uh - oh; I fear I have succumbed to them at last. The snow is being melted away by rain, leaving slush and ice. The morning light in my flat is dark grey blue. Tomorrow I will buy flowers, take my camera out and maybe try to get my hands on whatever issue of Russh magazine is kicking around London these days.

READY?..

Someone gave me a good, thoughtful question for D.V. recently. If anyone has any more, leave a comment here.

I know, you can ask her about your wishes...{photo - Harry Benson (thank you N)}

DSS...

UPDATE: They are so clearly designed by a man who will never need to walk with his feet at a 90 degree angle. But god they're beautiful, and if I can learn to walk in them (because looking uncomfortable and ungainly is never stylish) I'll keep them both and yes, will eat next month.

DSS = Drunken Sale Shopping

WISHLUST...

Monday, 4 January 2010
Just in case anyone wanted to buy me some jewels, here are some I like. My wishing powers have been totally on fire lately, so - time to give back. What are you wishing for this year? My biggest wish isn't jewels, or anything that can be bought - those are the trickiest ones. But I'll have a go at cogitating on any wishes you'd like to share in the comments...{Blanca Monros Gomez black diamond
