Jameela Jamil for

Jameela Jamil is a girl of many talents, from tv presenter to model and Radio DJ she has now launched her first clothing collection at! I've never worn anything from very and I can't say it is particularly my style but I have always admired Jameela's style as I see her snapped front row at fashion shows frequently. I saw a black and white advert for her 'first ever collection' and despite not being too attracted to I thought I had to check it out. There are some pieces that I like about the collection but I can't say I'm breaking the bank to order my first piece from the collection. Apart from the paw motif that is a pattern throughout I can't say there is much linking the collection together. From floral maxi dresses to wollen jumpers I think the collection simply offers too much. 

I've put together my favourites from the collection, take a look for yourself and see what you think?

Green skater skirt, £29
Paw Jumper Dress, £55

Black polo sweater £25
Black strapless prom dress, £65
Black blazer, £59
Frill sleeve playsuit, £39

If one thing is sure about the collection it is going to take all of my money!

Valentino Spring/Summer Advertising Campaign 2012

It's not often that an advertising campaign really stands out for me but Valentino's Spring/Summer Advertising Campaign is visually stunning and does the luxury brand justice. The vintage style dress covered in lace detailing complimented by the decadent backdrop make for beautiful images. Photography Deborah Turbeville really adds some of her personality in the  beautifully lit images. There are hints of burgundy and pink within the collection supported by strong neutral coloured pieces. It may even be my favourite advertising campaign of 2012 so far!

Models: Sun Fei Fei , Bette Franke , Zuzanna Bijoch, Maud Welzen 
& Clement Chabernaud
Photographer: Deborah Turbeville
Stylist: Karl Templer

Jean Paul Gaultier sparks outrage at Paris Couture Week

Jean Paul Gaultier causes outrage as his latest collection showcased at Paris Couture Week was inspired by former drug addict, Pete Doherty. 60-year-old Gaultier became fascinated as was said to be 'bowled over' by the British musician, Doherty after meeting him in Cannes. The show that had androgynous model, Andrej Pejic as the main star of the show included 19th century top hats, high taffeta collars and  lots and lots of black. 

Jean Paul Gaultier is not new to a little bit of controversy surrounding his show as his last couture show was inspired by the late, Amy Winehouse not so long after her death. One thing for sure is that Gaultier knows how to spark a bit of controversy and get people talking about his latest work!

Controversial Topshop t-shirt gets banned..

Up until today Topshop was selling a band style T-shirt that hadden hidden historical references that have offended many people. The T-shirt featured the skull and crossbow logo of the Nazi SS, hardly a symbol you want to be buying in order to look 'fashionable'. The black and white vest top features the word "slayer" with a graphic print of the skull and crossbow symbol and was sold for £22. 

The above logo was the logo of the 3rd division during the Second World War and is deemed highly offensive for many people. Before it was removed the tshirt was described on Topshops website as; “shrunken fit vest with lace detail featuring Slayer motif by And Finally”. Earlier today on Topshop's Facebook page they removed the t-shirt and apologised for any inconvenience caused. The announced: 

"It has come to our attention that a T-shirt that we had in stock up until earlier today featured a skull and cross bone design which has upsetting historic connotations and references. It is not our intention to cause offence through our collections and it has now been removed from all stores as well as We apologise for any distress felt by our customers".
