Oh what a technical hitch

The presenter of Australia's Next Top Model may be in need of a career change after a reputation-staining mistake made during the announcement of the show's winner.

The wrong name was called as the winner, a mistake the presenter had to regretably correct just 30 seconds after celebrations commenced.

The show's producers said that there had been a mix up with the live feed to the presenter.

Gutted wouldn't be the word.

Could there be a better cover to celebrate 25 years of Elle UK? I think not.

October's issue of the magazine hosts cover girl Kate Hudson. And how beautiful she looks too.

First coming across this eye-catching cover at Carlisle train station I was immediately a fan. The cover just stands out amongst the tens of other magazines in a similar market.

25 years in the making, Elle, you did well, very well.

Save the date

Creative director of Lanvin, Alber Elbaz has announced that he will be collaborating with high street store, H&M.

The highly anticipated range will hit 200 stores worldwide on 23 November 2010.

The Lanvin designer follows in the footsteps of Sonia Rykiel, Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld and Madonna.

Lea Michele - cover star?

There's no doubt about it that Lea Michele, star of Glee and now a regular at red carpet events, always looks stunning. She graces the red carpet every time in an ensemble to really make waves in.

But I'm just not that sure if she's magazine cover material. Sure she is super talented and red carpet savvy, but covers, really?

In the latest issue of Glamour, the cover girl declares that she is "the girl who eats", well she isn't eating that much by the look of her svelte figure in an Oscar de la Rente gown at last week's Emmys.

Love the colour.

Daring in sunshine yellow. Statement red lips add glamour.


Snaps for Ben di Lisi

Debuted in the British press earlier this year, the Principles by Ben di Lisi range for Debenhams breaks the fashion boundaries by featuring the first disabled model in any High Street advertising campaign.

The new campaign was launched with the help of How to Look Good Naked's Gok Wan and was unveiled on his show last night on Channel 4.

Both beautiful and inspiring, the campaign includes models of all shapes and sizes; tall, short or plus-sized.

The designers said that he wanted to make clothes that can be worn by everyone, no matter their shape or size.

£55, Asos

Dress for the occasion

It's September. Amongst the end of the school holidays, the beginning of Autumn and the drunken haze of Freshers' Week, this means one thing. My 21st birthday.

And in true party style, I am already looking for the dress.

The dress has to be gorge and accompanied by even more gorgeous shoes and what better way to start my search that the wonderment of internet shopping. Okay so I didn't actually shop (still trying to cut back) but I did find some styles that I quite like.

I have to admit that I am rather excited at properly shopping for the b-day outfit and will scoure the rails no end.

Here is the 'narrowed' down list of dresses that I am currently lusting over and if I had my way I would have them all, ahh the quiet delight of wishful thinking.

2. Miss Selfridge

Copy cat

After much covetting of Burberry's shearling aviator style bomber jacket and reading fellow bloggers swooning over the idea of adding one to their closet, I have willingly jumped on the copy cat bandwaggon.

While many designers and high street names are showcasing their versions for the coming season, there is yet to be one to look really good (hard in comparison to the perf Burberry one) and that doesn't break the bank.

New Look has launched their AW winter warmers range and it comes complete with the aviator knock-off.

For £39.99, this brown leather and sheepskin jacket is just a tad cheaper than the £2195 Burberry original.

Burberry AW10, just gorge.
