I have nooooooo idea how the hell this guy got his skin to look THIS pale. It's putting Dita Von Teese to shame don't you think?
Forget about the joke of being related to Marilyn Manson, what do you think of his outfit ensemble? I love it personally. The draping's marvelous, very Rick Owens indeed.
But I would have to say, no doubt it would be intimidating to be served by him don't you agree?
See, Luella Bartley's quirky designs had a long history in fashion since 2000, when she got the Elle award's "young designer of the year" for her debut collection called "Daddy, Who Were the Clash?". That was before her presentation move to Milan for one season, and then NYC for 12 seasons. And when she headed back home to London for her S/S 2008 and after, she has been getting awards consistently from her home country. So congrats to her!
For the other nominees that's heading home with the an award is:
Model - Jourdan Dunn
Beating out Agyness Deyn and Lily Donaldson. Am hoping that Lily will get this, but Jourdan had some great exposure for the past few seasons, making records everywhere, so good for her. And good for her to beat out Agyness.
Designer Brand - Jimmy Choo
Won against Agent Provocateur and Paul Smith. Kinda obvious isn't it?
Fashion Creator - Tim Walker
Beating out Pat McGrath and Terry Jones.
Red Carpet Designer - Matthew Williamson
Other nominees includes Giles Deacon and Stella McCartney. Was hoping Giles would win this though... But Matthew's good too.
Menswear Designer - Christopher Bailey for Burberry
Beating out Richard James and Paul Smith. Pual Smith was a tough competition me thinks.
Accessories Designer - Rupert Sanderson
Won against Lara Bohinc and Jonathan Kelsey.
Emerging Talent, Ready-To-Wear - Lousie Goldin
Beating out Felder Felder and Danielle Scutt. "Yeah!" to my girl! I love her and she deserve this! :D
Emerging Talent, Accesories- Nicolas Krikwood
Won against Charlotte Olympia and Anna Vince. Another obvious win.

Balmain has just annouced that they will be adding a menswear line under their umbrella, and will most probably be presented on the runway for Menswear fall 09.
Let's see who the designer would be(still Decarnin?), and what he/she will come up with.
But it seems that the house needed more.
Emilio Pucci launched it's own official online boutique yesterday, with only one thing in mind, globalization.
It would include the full collection of Spring 09, and extends from swimwear to accessories to pret-a-porter to evening-wear.
Following her father's aesthetics of women's body in motion, and the nature of Pucci's thin and light fabrics, Laudomia Pucci used a ballet dancer to model the online boutique's look-book shots to create the movements in order to stretch Pucci's image through the Internet.
So what you guys think? Internet is definitely a great tool for the global market. But isn't placing every collection online seems a little desperate and cheap?

While Lucinda Chambers are more OTT and playful.
How fantastic?! And noticed how ordinary they look? That's probably another favourite character I like about both of them. Same logic as the Mulleavy sisters from Rodarte. They're like the noisy sisters behind you in the grocery store queue.
So, which version of Vogue/team is your favourite?

But by placing MCB on the invitations for Riccardo Tisci's own capsule collection back during his early Givenchy days, I'm starting to think why the heck are them both still single? Can you still call that "muse"?
Riccardo Tisci A/W 05
Riccardo Tisci S/S 05
Of course. How gorgeous.

A tribute to Coco Chanel and her 125th anniversary, Karl Lagerfeld created a series of coins for the icon.
Styled by Katie Shillingford, looking young and accessorized with Dr Martens and all stars sneakers, which is much like the style of the young stylist and editor .
