Halle in INSTYLE

Halle Berry was looking radiant in this month's InStyle

magazine. The actress gushed about pregnant life and looking forward to her first child with model
Gabriel Aubry. Halle looked great on the cover in a white grecian style dress and causal basics in the cover story.
From the way this is looking, with celebs like Nicole, Halle and Christina, to name a few, celebrity maternity and children's line's may be the next big thing this year. When it happens remember you heard it here first.


It's one thing to have a hit 'song', okay maybe more than one, but still, does that explain and justify 'the' Marc Jacobs devoting a bag in her honour. The Stam bag in honour of Jessica Stam, I could kind of understand because nobody can deny that she is gorgeous and a great model, but Rihanna. I must confess that I am a Rihanna fan but I'm still not sure about this. What do you think? It seems like a trend in a series of suprising decisions for the designer, after last week relasing the pictures of his spring/summer campaign sported by the complete fashion whore that we call 'Posh'.

At first glance this new spring bag doesn’t resemble any other by designer Marc Jacobs. It doesn’t share any similar characteristic features that can be found when compared to one of its close relative lines – such as the signature chunky chain straps, quilted detailing, the iconic push-lock closure, etc. Nope, this bag is on it’s own. It’s a completely new style by the designer. I think it is in many ways a good move for the designer. The Marc Jacobs Rihanna bag is designed with a spacious interior (15.5″x 11.5″x 7.75″), a large easy-access twist-lock closure front flap pocket and features aged silver metal hardware, rolled leather half circle double handles, an extra 17” drop detachable thin chain link shoulder strap, the Marc Jacobs mini signature plaque on one side and a brown twill lining.

Although I loved the Stam, the style was getting rather dated and I suddenly turned off it when I saw secondary school girls wearing fake rips offs on the school bus. It's far less showy and more on the sophisticated side. Ahhh...if only I had £1,300 to spare......
What do you guys think of it?


I'm sure if you're anything like me you were sitting at home miserable about the whole Emmy scandal. I had absolutely no inspiration to blog because I'd planned for the next few days of blogging to be committed to saying who wore what at last night's canceled awards. I suppose we'll all have to make do with the winners list...

Jude law to play Halston?

Just after getting over the excitement about the release of the new movie based on the house of Gucci, and of course Shirley Maclaine and Audrey Tatou both playing the legendary Coco Chanel in separate projects, rumour has it that sexy movie pin up Jude Law is set to play Halston in an up can coming biopic.

The movie would be produced by Harvey Weinstein, who recently bought the Halston label, and hired Tamara Mellon and Rachel Zoe to helm the hems of the vintage brand.

I can't wait!
