I had this issue niggling at me for a long time. It never really impaired my thoughts about "buying a style" as I would like to call it. I heard these dreaded words utter at Glastonbury 2007 mid mud so this was quite sometime ago. I heard some guy say "I just saw Kate Moss". Ok that is fine. I saw Dot Cotton, so fucking what. Then what can only be described as KM fan uttered these words in response. "Oh my god...what was she wearing?". Oh dear! This made me laugh out loud. Did those words fall out of her mouth?. Ha ha and then made me realise the sad situation of people wanting to be like Kate. I can understand this to an extent as she is still one off the worlds biggest model, she is beautiful, successful and lives a wild lifestyle that if I had that money of course I would be living the dream. A style icon, yes, of course. But for who? For me no. There is nothing to get excited about. No inspiration for me. In my opinion she has become too high street in the sense that her style is even easier to copy now since she has created her own range for Topshop. She has her own perfume, hair care range ...what next! You can of course go in to Primark and pick up the whole look probably for less than 20 bucks! Cheap clothes, cheap look. The only difference is our Kate wears designer labels and on the odd occasion her own Topshop label to promote it. Her weekly routine would probably consist of facials, in house chef counting those carbs every week and she will no doubt get a shit load of designer clothes...probably ALL for free. Your really not going to get that million dollar look from Primark! Which is not a bad thing for the rest of the consumers of Look magazine.But for me...its a negative. There is so much more to style than Look and Primark...trust me! The more you save the better the item you can afford that's worth the money. Not buying a hole heap of crap from Primarni. By all means take inspiration from the woman but I think you would be getting into dangerous territory when you start getting hair cuts like her and convincing yourself that you could be sisters. A terrible situation would occur and that is "The ugly version of Kate Moss". Not so stylish now!

YSL are to grace the street again with 2000 free tote bags to give away on Valentines day. The delightful freebie will be roaming cities like New York, London, Paris, Milan and Tokyo. A great touch again really as I would much rather have a YSL bag (hey a tote bag is good enough for me....credit crunch) than a crap pack of chocolates that i ain't going to eat because i am hoping that i will still be on my detox. But not only do you get a delightful YSL bag but inside a custom UBS key which has already upload Stefano Pilati manifesto of images and video. Please stop with the gifts! Claudia Schiffer is the star of this campaign and if you go to www.ysl.com you will be able to see more.

Here is a few things that I need in my life. It just makes me depressed that I am never going to get them! Let me share with you. ACNE BOOTS 240pounds Jill Sander I dare not look! Topshop Unique 60 pounds and I DID buy this today....yipeee Vivienne Westwood Red Label 135 pounds
I loved this shoot collaborating Grace Jones and film director Chris Cunnigham so much. It was featured in Dazed and Confused issue in October 08. The disturbing contorted poses along with the eerie lighting really questions you to think, what is that and this is amazing.

This would have been the perfect gift for any special girl or gay. Margiela gift bow ring. Amazing. If I was a mother I would defiantly be the queen mummy with this Fendi mink baby stroller. I would not even have to barge you out the way with this dream of mobile genius. You would simply move and let this pass with adoration. You be like "Hol up lemme check your wheels" If I were in a band and I had the amount of money that I could start several fires with just because I can, then this would be in my life. God like Karl just keeps bringing prolific pleasure to my life.
