Monogramme… Sorry, Hologramme Lingerie

I’m guessing its no models ideal job to stand in a shop window, in their underwear, night after night, regardless of how well paid it is.

The Disease You Should Want to Catch

I talk a lot about inner beauty.  But I’ve always found it very hard to define.

The Scrawny Style Icon with Huge Feet

‘How do I look?’ said Audrey Hepburn, in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Well the first in our series of style icons always looked                             A-MA-ZING! Funny to think that at the start of her career she was described as scrawny, flat chested, ill-proportioned with … Continue reading
