It has been announced that indeed, 19 year old Jourdan Dunn, the face of Topshop/Vogue covergirl is five and a half months pregnant!
What a surprise. Read the whole story at Vogue.com
Jourdan was fashion scouted in Oxford Streets Primark…but has since graced every fashion magazine cover and walked for no less than 50 runways over the Fashion Weeks in February 2009. Will she continue her model reign after the pregnancy?
I know this is slightly old news, I haven’t had time to get round to writing about this yet! Sorry guys! Also, apologies for this very suddenly turning into a CHANEL blog! Unfortunately, Chanel happens to be my favourite fashion house, so thats probably why I’m leaning more towards Chanel at the moment….
Anyway, this is by the by…
It has apparently been confirmed that British muscian and fashionista Lily Allen has been picked as the newest face of Chanel by Mr Karl Lagerfeld himself.
Lets be honest, it’s been on the cards for yonks! Lily is always front row at fashion weeks, whether that be Chanel or not, she’ll always be sporting at least one piece of Chanel. She owns dozens of Chanel handbags – and is most often carrying (rather roughly sometimes – which does upset me somewhat) the grey large camera bag.
I have to say I was, and still am, in two minds about this collaboration. I on the one hand, think its great. I actually quite like Lily now – although it was only last year she went a little bit mental and dyed her hair blonde-ish and then pink… and only a year before that when she was wearing the hideous prom dress/trainers combo. BUT how she has bloody well blossomed! Just look at her in the picture above, quite the ‘Chanel Girl‘. It makes me smile.
But still, what would Gabrielle Chanel say? Surely she’d be turning in her grave? Hmm. I’m not so sure. One thing I am sure about is I’m very excited to see the shoot and the campaign. I’m sure she’ll look amazing. She’ll be the face of the leather goods – about right really considering she’s never seen without the aforementioned leather goods in question!
What do you think? Good or bad decision on Mr Lagerfelds part?
Well, I’ve been admiring these lovely dainty velvety pumps for weeks now and I’ve decided the Navy ones are mine come payday! They’re just lovely, arent they!? ;o

CHRISTOPHER KANE for TOPSHOP – RRP: £120.
BRAND NEW WITH ALL TAGS. Size 10.
GRAB A PIECE OF FASHION HISTORY! A VERY RARE AND EXCLUSIVE FIND!
HIS neon stretched elastic mini-dresses trimmed with frothy confections of lace and dashes of Swarovski crystals may sell for £1000-a-pop in Browns, but never let it be said that Christopher Kane has gone all grand on us. As part of his sponsorship deal with New Generation, the initiative backed by Topshop, fashion’s newest star has designed a capsule collection for the high street store. We’ve seen it, and it’s worth setting out your sleeping bag for: his signature style has been adapted into easy, breezy and oh-so-sexy pleated chiffon dresses, in delicate tea, blush and grey shades, with neon zips. “Topshop is an institution,” says the 24-year-old designer, who debuted on the London Fashion Week schedule last season. “To have the opportunity to produce a collection for it is an honour. Fashion is becoming more and more demographic and this will make my clothes more accessible.”
