So you may, or may not know, that Jacqui Ainsley is the new lady friend of filmmaker and former Mr Madonna, Guy Ritchie. Jacqui playfully said goodbye to Mr Ritchie yesterday lunchtime wearing the AllSaints Deimos Dress and Sand Heels; while he sported an Andy Pandy pair of PJ’s!

Briston Cardigan, £85.00. Available at AllSaints.com and in store.
…and FINALLY I can announce the Briston Cardigan has arrived online at AllSaints.com I’m very excited to have a cardigan named after yours truly naturally, my parents are very proud indeed.
A little bit about the Briston Cardigan then! It’s a Cotton, Silk and Cashmere mix making it luxuriously soft and it’s really quite thin – so perfect for this Summer! I for one will be wearing one – despite it being a Menswear style, it’s actually a really nice piece. Which is a bonus really! ;o
SO, what do you think of the Briston Cardigan?
Jarvis Cocker popped into my local this evening – couldn’t resist getting this photographic evidence for my dear sister;o
Do you remember the first time?
Oh Topshop, it feels like there’s a MASSIVE echo in the room.
Ah yes, that’s right, I’ve seen you here… since Spring/Summer 09.
I’m actually SO SO fed up with seeing Topshop regurgitate other brands/designers clothing and accessories. It’s actually beyond embarrassing for them and with that in mind, I’m going to vow not to buy anything from Topshop ever again – until they actually get a design team and not a ‘plagiarism’ team. It’s awful.
I thought I liked this dress when I saw it on the Topshop Unique runway last London Fashion Week back in September. Now the dress is online, I KNOW I love it and I WANT.
Topshop Unique and Boutique, for me, have been lacking somewhat recently… maybe it was just the curse of that awkward transitional period between Autumn/Winter and Spring? I certainly hope so!
Topshop Unique Hawaiian Print Dress, £120.
Zac Efron was papped (to high heaven!) when he left AllSaints on Robertson Blvd, LA, this week. (Watch Zac leaving AllSaints below).

Zac’s pal (to the left of the above) was also AllSaints clad wearing the Liberte Tee.
So what can’t Emma Watson do?
She’s a fully fledged filmstar, model and now has dabbled in fashion design by working alongside Fair Trade pioneer, People Tree.
While Emma has held her hands up and said she’s no designer, “I’m so pleased that I got involved, but I don’t want to take all the credit for being the designer because I haven’t trained as a designer or even gone to art college – in fact, I had no idea about the amount of work involved at the outset!”.
It’s admirable that she’s doing it for all the good reasons ‘celebrities’ should collaborate with fashion houses. She states in a recent interview, “Oh, I don’t have any plans to be a designer. I’m doing this range because I really care about fair-trade and ethical fashion…. I didn’t want this collection to be all about me. This is not a celebrity endorsement, it is about creating something that is genuinely a great idea and about making a difference through fashion.“
Take a look at the collection below – even her model brother, Alex joined in the fun!
What do you make of Emma’s fashion endorsement?
Whistles has MASSIVELY changed recently. Not just in terms of their online presence (check out their very interactive new transactional website Whistles.co.uk) but the brand has completely shifted market focus.
Take a look at my fave SS10 pieces below; all of which will be firmly on my ‘wish list’ until I’m allowed a splurge.
Denim colour block dress, £95. Whistles.
White noise print dress, £110. Whistles.
Denim sweat hareem pants, £75. Whistles.
Jersey maxi shirt, £85. Whistles.
Cropped denim marl sweat top, £55. Whistles.
What do you think of the newly reformed Whistles then?
*This post of image heavy.
I absolutely love the new AllSaints Spring/Summer 2010 campaign graphics. The shoot is a mixture of Las Vegas desert and the recent GQ/AllSaints collaboration featuring Will Lewis and the dashingly handsome, Andre Van Noord. It all works so well and frankly, I CANNOT WAIT for summer!
I will keep updating this post as and when I receive product details for the shots…
Let me know what your thoughts are.
