Pussy West

Terry Richardson is a bit like Marmite; you either love him or you hate him. I for one love him, nakedness and all. I've just stumbled across this editorial and of course, I love it; don't you wish you could trade the snow for a western saloon?!

Featuring the lovely Abbey Lee, Crystal Renn and Eniko Mihalik, Pussy West is one of my favourite Richardson editorials. The last two shots are definitely my favourite - mainly because they're so unlike his usual stuff.

It's a bit depressing being stuck in a very cold and snowy England when you see photo's like this. What do you think, do you love it or hate it?

Everybody Put Your Glasses Up

WHAT a babe. Rihanna is the perfect cover star for January's GQ; I think its safe to say that she's my new girl crush. This issue will definitely be on my Christmas list, anyone else?

Spotlight: Ke$ha

Ke$ha is in this weeks Spotlight for all the wrong reasons, mainly being that I think she looks like a complete fool. I think I must've missed the Ke$ha bandwagon because she literally looks so ridiculous, I don't even know where to start. The fact that I've never seen her on any 'Worst Dressed' lists means that she's either too bad for them, or she's not a big enough celebrity - I'm going with the former...

from left to right: leaving Jimmy Kimmel live, Rolling Stone after-party and at the AMA's.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for freedom of expression and all that but seriously? When she's not looking like a man in drag, she's looking like a try-hard 15 year old. The studded eyebrows, the fake 80s mullet, the medical looking glasses? It's overkill. It's as though as soon as someone says the words 'red' and 'carpet', she raids the dressing up box.

However, it's what Ke$ha doesn't look like on the red carpet that's got her here...

She looks almost good here, but I really do mean almost. The blue/gold lipsticks and tatty army boots ruin each of these looks, which is a shame because she's obviously a beautiful girl. Still, it's not my cup of tea. To be fair she is a recording artist not a fashion icon but surely it helps? If I've missed the point completely then please, enlighten me.

Student + Dying = Studying

 I'm supposed to be writing a 2000-word article but instead I'm looking at kittens and Abbey Lee. Compromise? I don't think so...

CFDA: Battle of the Gossip Girls

The annual CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards usually pull a good crowd, it is one of the biggest events on the fashion calender, after all. However, it seems that no amount of Gossip Girl styling could help the stars last night. I'm a massive fan of the show (mainly because I fancy Ed Westwick) and they usually all look so dapper, but these looks didn't do anything for me...

I would ordinarily say, "don't get me wrong they both look great", but they don't. Blake, in Chanel, needs a new (preferably black) bra, a classy up-do and a quick shoe swap with Leighton and then maybe she'd look great but sadly, she missed the mark. I love Leighton's Roger Vivier ankle-boots but the Prabal Gurung dress and hair aren't doing it for me. She suits super short mini's and statement hair and this look is just far too prim. However saying that, Leighton in this instance, is the better of the two.

Now for the boys...

I'm never going to pick Chace over Ed so we all know who I think looks better, I'll let you decide on that one! I wish Ed would take a leaf out of Chuck Bass' book on the red carpet, he'd look so much more handsome, if that's possible?

Who do you think looked best at the CFDA Fashion Fund Awards?

MOCA Gala: Chanel Queens

The MOCA Gala, held in Los Angeles last night was awash with trendy celebrities and free Chanel handbags. That's right, free bags. If every museum gave out free Chanel clobber, I'd be a complete history/art/science buff. And have a very nice wardrobe. Anyway, Kate Bosworth and Kirsten Dunst showed us mere mortals just how good Chanel looks on the red carpet (as if we needed reminding)...

 I'm not a fan of colour so I absolutely love the monochrome and they both wear it so well, Kirsten's 20s vibe is stunning and Kate, well, what a babe.

Who do you think wore Chanel better? I literally don't think I can choose between them, they both look stunning. For more information about MOCA, click here.

Spotlight: Freja Beha Erichsen

The December issue of Vogue is easily my favourite of the year. I've already written about it once - that's how impressed I am.

However, it's the insanely beautiful Freja Beha Erichsen that I'm swooning over this time. Anyone with a fashion-tuned brain will know that Mario Testino is a photographic God and this image, as part of his Star Girls editorial, is nothing short of perfection; although mainly thanks to Freja. I only noticed the styling (which is rather average) after I'd pulled myself away from her face, that gaze is so intense!

It's been a while since I wrote about Freja and she definitely deserves this weeks Spotlight. What do you think of Freja in the December issue?

Only Girl in the World

Rihanna is having a moment. Again. Since the release of Rated R, she's been spotted here, there and everywhere looking nothing less than amazing with a wardrobe to-die-for. However, with the release of Only Girl in the World (which for the record, is amazing) she's been well and truly catapulted into the media spotlight and I can't wait to see her promotional outfits - if her MTV EMA's appearance was anything to go by, we're in for a treat...

I love Rihanna in Marchesa and she definitely rocked this ruffled number on the red (purple) - carpet. I love that she kept hair simple and non-fussy too because the dress in itself is such a statement piece; the cheeky side-panel revealing her tattoo is just the icing on the cake.

She's definitely got the whole 'military boot and feminine dress' look down to a T, how cute is that flowery dress? Her signature style is very much about mixing things up a little and she always pulls it off immaculately. What do you think of Rihanna's new song? It's pretty much become my go-to feel good tune, anyone else?

Spotlight: Emma Watson

Ok, so I know I go on about British Vogue being a bit shit because they cover rubbish celebrities that no-one cares about but the December issue looks amazing. I'm a massive Harry Potter fan and although the films can't compare to the books (don't even try and tell me different), they're still great; plus, December cover star Emma Watson is a total babe.

Isn't she just the cutest? I wasn't so sure of the pixie-crop to begin with but now I can't imagine her with long hair. Not only is she insanely beautiful, she's insanely rich and insanely intelligent; I feel rather inadequate right now.

I can't wait to read the full interview because she always comes across as a really great girl. Not one of these Cheryl Cole types that Vogue love so much.

What do you think of Emma and will you be seeing the new Harry Potter film this month (got my ticket already, I told you I'm a fan)?

Birthday Beats

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.

Ok so thats a bit of an exaggeration - tequila generally doesn't sit too pretty with me (nor do spirits full stop) - however, the launch of the extremely glamorous Rhodes Bar at the Cumberland Hotel made me want to drink cocktails again, and lots of them.

Served in an array of scrummy cocktails, Patron was our bevvy of choice for the evening- all the classics have been reinvented with a tequila twist and to top it off, Gary Rhodes is in charge of food. Heaven.

I'm a sucker for a good mojito and these lovely tequila numbers didn't disappoint. The entire restaurant has been given a several-million-pound makeover therefore it's as swanky as they come, a definite recommend for a luxury evening. 

It's my birthday today so for now, over and out!
