    W Magazine editorial & cover – Rihanna, Naomi Campbell and Iman

    Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and Iman in W Magazine, with a Rihanna Cover. Gosh, these women are flawless beauties. Naomi Campbell is fluid perfection, Iman’s beauty won’t quit and Rihanna is her own brand of  exotic breath taker. I remember someone once telling me I had her forehead, I am good with that. She has a raw magnetism that you can’t fake.

     

    Whilst yes, these women are the ether, the fire-serving designs created by Balmain deserve equal attention. This is Fashion Art. Creativity of this calibre was the inspiration for this board on Pinterest. Olivier Rousteing (aka Mr Cheekbones), the Creative Director of Balmain is himself extremely inspiring. A twenty-something year old alumni of ESMOD fashion college, the young talent succeeded Christophe Decarnin as Creative Director in 2011, whilst still being relatively unknown. The brand has gone from strength to strength, guided under his vision. His special style of detailing and love of Baroque embellishment is his calling card, with creations straddling the line between haute couture and ready-to-wear. I am extremely excited to see his career develop in the years to come, for now, let’s just enjoy these stunning images.

    Chiltern Firehouse

    I attended a special pre-screening of the critically acclaimed film NIGHT MOVES directed by Kelly Reichardt at Chiltern Firehouse. The film revolves around a plan to destroy a dam in Oregon. Eisenberg plays this role brilliantly. Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning, the screening was followed by a discussion on environmental activism chaired by Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

    Jesse Eisenberg, Greenpeace activist and leader of the Arctic 30 Frank Hewetson, and founding CEO of ClientEarth and Zen Priest James Thornton, all participated in the lively chat afterwards. It was fantastic meeting Frank Hewetson as I was fortunate enough to board the now infamous Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior, earlier this year.

    Fabulous intimate evening, better pictures to come.

    Jessica McCormack Baby Shower

    OK so first things first, I never ever win raffles! The last prize I won was Red Carpet Green Dress and that transformed my life (VOGUE: Angel Accolades ) so although I never win, it can sometimes turn out well when I am lucky enough to!

    A year ago , just before the Oscars I visited, and fell in love with, the incredibly curated Jessica McCormack store. I visited based on a recommendation from Roland Mouret and designed my ‘Love Letter’ rings (a Victorian tradition of spelling out names or messages in gem stones), picture here. At the time I knew that it was understandable why Rihanna, Madonna and Carine Roitfeld all love her. Her work is full blown creativity at its best. But there’s only way to buy Jessica McCormack’s show-stopping jewels, and that’s the old-fashioned way: visit her shop. It is absolutely stunning. There’s a piano that plays itself designed by Based Upon, art by Rick Owens and Louise Bourgeois, sculptures by Tom Price (a chap in a puffa jacket checking his phone sits on a pedestal, like a Michaelangelo) and Dali-esque furniture by the Haas Brothers, who have made pieces for Lagy Gaga and Versace Home. And, of course, cabinets filled with exquisite and unusual jewels.

    So to visit ‘The House’ for Jessica’s breathtaking baby shower a year later (she is expecting a boy!), enter the raffle and win…well safe to say that when my name as called I was absolutely shocked beyond words. Sweaty palms, shiny forehead, the lot! The raffle benefited The Children’s Trust, which was celebrating 30 years as the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury, providing expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care.
