In a time when FASHION is celebrating the return of the SUPERMODEL, Gigi’s cover shoot for Vogue Paris comes in at the pinnacle of the movement. The magic FORMULA? Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel collections, a blonde BOMBSHELL, and some killer styling.   It isn’t the presence of Gigi Hadid — although that did help the March issue get noticed — but the styling, that won me over. While Gigi is easily replaceable by another blonde bombshell like Ana Ewers who, unlike Hadid, seems to be completely unaware of her sex appeal while maintaining an air of nonchalance, Emmanuelle Alt’s

Fashion week muses, and the sources of photographers’ flashes and close-ups, go through CYCLES. A couple of years ago, it was the Russian czarinas in opulent embroideries and colour experiments. More recently, the FRENCH fashion editors took centre stage with a Parisienne nonchalance that cannot be emulated. The past two seasons, it’s the ITALIAN crew — dressed in everything from Gucci to Vetements, but giving everything personality — that spearheaded street style.   Whether it’s the return of Gucci as the it-fashion house at the helm of Alessandro Michele, or the fact that 2015 was

Traveling to a desolate resort on the SINAI peninsula following the 2015 plane crash was a singular experience, but not without its share of rose-gold SUNSETS, turquoise waters, and dreamy coral REEFS: the ingredients for a PERFECT break.   I have been in Sharm el-Sheikh for two days, and realise that so far my trip has been marked by one fact: solitude.

The highway which our taxi

“Now, I wouldn’t presume to tell a woman what a woman oughtta think, but tell her if she’s gotta think: think pink!”   If you’re still not inclined towards pink after scrolling past this post, please refer to the first five minutes of Funny Face, where the above quote is taken from. The fashion editor of Quality magazine (loosely based on Diana Vreeland’s reign at Vogue) elucidates to the rest of editors on the next big trend. As you may have guessed, it’s the colour pink, which apparently should be used

The free spirited and creative HERITAGE of Tuscany, home to the infinitely romantic Italian Renaissance movement, calls for flowing BOHEMIAN dresses, delicate lace details, and soft-hued FLORAL prints: an artful SIMPLICITY.   Tuscany has held my fascination for a while now, both as an international relations student and an individual interested in fashion.
