My New Favourite Design House: HALSTON HERITAGE.


Legendary American label Halston launched its hip diffusion line in 2009, and has since garnered a cult following amongst style-setters like Sarah Jessica Parker and Chloë Sevigny. The epitome of Studio 54 glamour, Halston Heritage evokes the brand’s timeless appeal reinventing archive pieces into effortlessly elegant silhouettes. Do like the original high-living Halstonettes, Bianca Jagger and Anjelica Huston and get retro-chic in asymmetric jersey dresses paired with oversized totes and clutches in silver, orange and cerulean.

BAFTA TV Awards: The Red Carpet.


I went to the 2010 BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday as a reporter for AllSaints. I headed down to the red carpet ready for all the stars of the small screen to arrive. Here’s what happened….

Follow AllSaints!

I could not have done anything without this trusty pass!

Some funny looking blue telephone box?

We couldn't believe it when Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester!) turned up! She looked lovely in Armani...

....but then an even bigger surprise came when Tim Burton rocked up!

Ah the lovely Brian Cox looked very dashing in a Paul Smith suit.

We got a bit of a shock when this lady turned up! Fashion faux-pas?

Born, June of ’86, my birthdays coming…


You’ve gotta a lotta lotta nerve. Coming here when I’m still with him. And I can’t have you, it isn’t fair. Born March of ’86, my birthday’s coming. And if I had one wish, yeah, you’d be it. When you’re ’round I lose myself inside your mouth. You’ve got brown eyes. Like no one else. Baby make it to me. Again and again. Again, again, again, again. Never stop again and again. Again, again, a-a-again, again. Never stop. Oh he never really saw me. Or waited when we were hooking up. Yeah he’d a never last… last week when I was sad. You said that you knew. My eyes change from kinda green to kind blue.

I left my head and my heart on the dancefloor.


This video needs zero introduction, but this is it you little monsters.

“Telephone” by Lady Gaga and Beyonce.

This is a pretty amazing music video right here (unfort, I can’t embed the 9 minute version because of Lady GaGa’s official YouTube channel not allowing such embedding links…)
