How's your mullet...

Now trending, according to style bible Vogue, is the mullet dress.  Like its hair counterpart, it's business at the front - legs, and a party at the back! This will be hard to pull off if you're not blessed with great legs, a softer approach like Diane Kruger or Berardi's dress is the way to go.

Beyoncé this...

The pop diva's latest album cover art reads like a high fashion shoot. Fashion has always played a starring role for the singer, but this time, she has chosen to "dress-up" in up-and-coming fashion designers. Very refreshing, take a look...

Scuba doo...

Resort 2012 is over and one strong trend that came through is the sporty scuba influence. It brings to the fore a bold look with futuristic fabrics, zips exposed and splashes of colour. This body-con look means it's time to hit the gym so we are ready to shine through in summer.

Sumptuous Gucci...

One of my favourite photographic duos, Mert & Marcus have been very busy lately. Their latest campaign for Gucci FW 11/12 is just divine, it features Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw who is styled to perfection. The saturated colours just captured my attention...

White women, Sleepless nights, Big nudes...

Helmut Newton - need I say more?  The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston is featuring his works from these aptly titled books. The photographs in these books established Newton's reputation as a provocateur and lover of the female form. Not for everyone, the images can be confronting, however I appreciate these strong iconic pictures.

Givenchy's collection is breathtakingly beautiful...

Extreme pumps...

These 8" stilettos have been designed by Christian Louboutin and are to be auctioned off to benefit the English National Ballet. They have been inspired by ballet shoes and are covered in Swarovski crystals. Although they look beautiful I don't think I could walk in them...
