Miss Selfridge Limited Edition...

Miss Selfridge is one of my favourite high-street stores for it's on trend and vintage style clothing.  Recently they launched their Limited Edition rage as part of their Christmas Shop. The collection is full of beautiful and intricately embellished pieces, faux-fur and timeless styles. The dresses echo the classic 20's style, whilst the crystal and studded detail on the accessories add a modern edge to the looks; the coats are mimics of traditional designs. 
The collection starts from £20 and from £70 for dresses.
 Miss Selfridge have really out done themselves this year, the collection is absolutely stunning.

Mad for January...

The formal model and star of Mad Men January Jones has been confirmed as the new face of Versace. January will follow in Georgia May Jagger's footsteps as the face of Versace's Spring/Summer 2010 collection. 
January struck up a friendship with Dontella Versace on a shoot for US Elle and has since been sat front row at the Versace show at Milan Fashion Week and wore a Versace dress to the 2010 Emmy Awards; the two fashionistas also hosted a charitable dinner to celebrate the Central Saint Martains 20-20 fund. Mario Testino will shoot the campaign once again. With January Jone's stunning looks and Versace's clothes, this is no doubt going to be an amazing shoot!

Crop it...

So it's getting really cold now and if you don't already have a coat, why the heck not?!
The winter trends this year have been pretty amazing what with the  chunky knits, outsiders fashion, aviator look etc. 
But the winter trend that caught my eye recently is the cropped coat, it's a cool modern twist on a basic item and I love it!!
Ok, so there probably not the warmest coats ever, but how awesome are they?



If I could, I would have these in my winter wardrobe: 

Clockwise: Stella McCartney | Proenza Schouler | Marc by Marc Jacobs | 3.1 Philip Lim | Stella McCartney | Matthew Williamson

The Ice Queen: Anna Wintour

I know she is perceived as a super bitch but she also has the job that most fashionistas dream of. She has been editor-in-chief of American Vogue for nearly 30 years. She is known for her trademark sunglasses and bob that she has has since she was 14 years old.
After joining the magazine Wintour began to stir things up with new ideas. She suggested that covers feature the models body as well rather than the tight head shots that were used before. She also mixed less expensive clothes with high-end fashion. The magazine cover on the left was Wintour's first. The model is wearing $50 jeans and a $10,000 top from Christian Larcoix; it was the first Vogue cover to feature jeans. Wintour's decisions received mixed reactions from big players in the industry but Wintour wanted to show the way real women put together clothes (however I don't know any 'real' women that own $10,000 t-shirts...).
Anna Winotur's role in the magazine has changed the shape of the fashion industry we know today and has made her the most powerful person in fashion; now who wouldn't want to be her?

Style Crush: Eva Mendes

Eva Mendes is probably one of the most gorgeous women around today. At 36 the Hollywood scarlet has already won us over with films such as Hitch and The Spirit, as well as her flawless style and elegance. Eva always looks classy and sexy at the same time, with minimal jewellery but beautiful gowns that do all the talking. Recently on the red carpet she's been seen in 50's styled dresses, which are absolutely adorable and totally on trend with the 50's midi-skirt at an all-time hight this year!

These are some of my favouirte Eva looks this year:
