Secret Garden Party- the festival that can keep a secret!

No Comments Fault magazine, my words, review

The Muddy Garden Music Festival

This week has resulted in me being covered in lots and lots of mud! Not through choice! It’s not a new fashion statement… But it was de-rigeur at this year’s Secret Garden Party in a sleepy village in Cambridgeshire. You might think that all festivals involve some degree of muddy shenanigans, but nothing prepared me for the 36 hour downpour.

It didn’t stop the party, but it certainly made me a little jealous of those who were glamping in a yurt!!!

Alexander McQueen. Inferno this time!!

No Comments fashion, Fault magazine, my words

It’s not all about the amazing retrospective at the V & A museum you know!

“When I’m dead and gone people will know the twenty first century was started by Alexander McQueen”. You can’t argue with that.

Alexander McQueen is truly being recognised as a genius this year, and the book featuring photographs by Kent Baker and words edited by Melanie Rickey is a must have for any hard core fans.

Focussing on the AW96 ‘Dante’ collection, which has a suitably spooky setting, this beautiful coffee table book showcases behind the scenes images and interviews with most of the teams involved.

Will Poulter: not so child like anymore!

No Comments Fault magazine, menswear fashion styling, my words

Will Poulter1 Shot03RGB55 Shot04RGB56

There’s alot of talk at the moment about Will’s latest film, The Maze Runner. Not all of it good, but I’ve not seen it so can’t comment. However the 21 year old sweetheart did get into a bit of Twitter banter with a Toronto journo who didn’t seem to enjoy it very much at all.

All I can say is, how can you fault a face like this? Will has the face (and personality) of an angel. He has worked his way up to the big screen and there is no stopping him. I styled him way back when…and he had the manners, attitude and talent to go far. Watch this space Mr Toronto, that’s all I can say.

Christmas starts in Switzerland….

No Comments 55Factory, Fault magazine, my words, spa, travel

I was lucky enough to be invited on a Press Trip to Switzerland this week to cover the Realisme: La symphonie des contraires exhibition at the extremely impressive Foundation Pierre Arnaud gallery in Crans Montana in the Alps which is well worth the journey. I’d advise at least three nights to make the most of the resort!

It also meant I got to spend some time larking about in the snow and AMAZING spa at our five star hotel, The Crans Amabassador www.cransambassador.ch with my fashion hubbie Christopher Sims from 55Factory, and some other international journalists. Tough life!

As we all know the real Santa needs snow, so now I can officially declare Christmas open….
