Blake Lively does Interview

Whilst on holiday I lost all sense of reality, being in Barcelona is not like real-life - it's so much better. I'm still not quite ready to go back to being normal again, so what better way to evade than look at images of Blake Lively?

Shot by Craig McDean for the latest issue of Interview, Blake looks stunning. Admittedly I prefer her Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester because a) she isn't Anna Wintour's lapdog and b) she's not preened and polished to within every inch of her tiny self but this is still a beautiful editorial. 

When my life regains some sort of normality I will post something a little more substantial, but until then the September issue of Interview is out on August 31st. 

Who do you prefer, Blake, Leighton or their Upper East Side characters Serena and Blair?

Spotlight: Agyness Deyn

Oh Agyness, what happened? It's not like she can excuse the shaved head as being the result of a mental breakdown and she does look as though she's on day release from somewhere pretty insane, but my god isn't it beautiful?

This editorial shot in New York's East Village shows she is still striking as ever and although I was one of the fickle ones who got bored with the whole bleached-crop-and-DM's routine quicker than you can say Albert Hammond Junior (don't deny it, you did too), I do still think she's amazing.

It's like one glorious flashback from the 90's (my favourite decade) and although I hated the shaved head to begin with, it's kind of growing on me. The styling, although quite predictable, suits her new 'do' to perfection and she's hit Spotlight status for proving that she's more than just a fad (I'll forgive and forget the fact that she left England for America and that she's donning Cheetos not Wotsits...)

The bottom image could be one of my favourite photo's this year so far, for lack of a better (less pretentious) word, it's captivating and as Gok would say - that cable knit is "bang on trend". Do you still love Agyness regardless of what crispy snack she prefers?

Cover Up

Everyone watched Lady Gaga's meteoric rise to stardom-hood at the beginning of this year but seriously, other than a couple of scantily-clad football game attendances - where has she been hiding?

At Vanity Fair getting naked and wearing ill-fitting wigs, it seems.

If this was anyone else I'd probably hate it (I'd definitely hate it in fact) but it isn't and OK so it's boring and she looks like she's taken a bunch of drugs but I'm glad to see her again. Weirdly it makes me want to do a Kelly Osbourne and dye my hair some strange shade of lilac and then paint my nails to match - but isn't that part of Gaga's (Osbourne is way less cool) appeal? Yes, is the answer.

I was going to write about the September Issue of UK Vogue which arrived on my doorstep this morning, but it was all battered up and featured Kate Moss on the cover AGAIN which made me too annoyed to even consider - I told you Vogue, I'm bored of seeing Moss on the cover, regardless of how beautiful she is.

And she really is beautiful, but still...Excessive cover star or just a super super model?
