What happens when you mix a creative photographic talent with an up and coming womenswear brand? A cool advertorial that would normally be out of reach for a start up brand.
Huxton’s first video was created by James Beattie over just two days, in a tiny studio with zero budget. Without the plethora of models, glamorous location and large budget normally at the disposal of larger fashion names, Huxton’s video stands alongside the fashion giants in a credible way. Beattie and Huxton prove that all it takes is a good idea and an element of creativity to make a fashion video that could easily blow the majority of other films out of the water.
Huxton was founded in 2011 by Joanna Lingham and Rebecca Pickard. Inspired by the idea of Clarissa Pinkola Estes that wolves and women are relational by nature, the wolf became the perfect symbol to represent our brand. Wolves are “possessed of great endurance and strength, they are deeply intuitive, fiercely stalwart and very brave”
The stories of Estes which speak of discovering one’s instinctual self were so resonant that they became the catalyst for the beginnings of Huxton and this wolf-like female strength is ever present in the essence of our designs. From bold colours to stunning prints, micro minis to floor-sweeping maxis, we create clothes for women who want to stand out. Check out the full collection at the Huxton website.
Lucila Lotti focuses on shoes made from patent leather, suede, satin and vinyl in homage to her mother who always wore heels and lipstick when leaving the home. Opening her own boutique in the creative, bohemian hub of Palermo in Buenos Aires, Lucila is amongst fine company. Given this sense of history and creative disposition, it is no surprise that Lucila’s debut collection came to the attention of Patricia Field and Sex & The City. Her bright, bold shapes and ability to mix colour and silhouette in a brave, fashionable style will no doubt continue to inspire more international press.

Fall is one of the best seasons for outdoors, especially since it’s so chilly and most of the time shady, because the sun keeps hiding behind clouds. Basically it is the best time to ride a bike around the city on sunny days. So as I was, naturally, contemplating biking and of course…biker chic I came across this image of Keri Russell in "who-what-wear" and Glamour. Isn’t this so feminine and chic? I love this easy going comfortable thing going on without losing style and chic, because it is so easy to cross that fine line seperating the two!
I went for some window-internet shopping to look for the best looks and that I thought you might like to take a peep! So here goes…

She revealed her 25lb weight gain during a radio interview this week.
And Lady Gaga kept her fuller frame covered up in a leopard-print dress while arriving at her Paris hotel on Friday night.
The 26-year-old hitmaker hid her new curves under the dramatic zip-up dress with wide peplum hips, which she wore with Victorian-style black platform booties.
Robyn Lawley has been known as one of the most successful plus-size models in the fashion industry, but now she breaking ground, going where no plus-size stunner has gone before: Ralph Lauren.
The size 12 model, who stands at a statuesque 6 feet 2 inches tall, initially worked as a regular sized model but felt the pressure to diet and change her body, and eventually hit her stride as a plus-size mode at 19. She was on the cover of last year's Vogue Italia.
“I had to go through my own self-love, self-hate to get to where I am,” says 23 year old Lawley. “It took me years to watch other plus-size models be so confident with themselves. But then I realized that I could use my voice to be a positive role model for girls. When I found plus-size modeling, it was such a relief to be just me.”
Lawley’s modeling career began early at age 16 when she entered a competition. She finally signed with an agency three years later at the age of 19. Just four short years later Lawley is a Wilhelmina model, in the ranks of fashion’s biggest names and participating in shoots with the biggest brands and campaigns.
“It feels really good,” she said of her recent success. “I feel it’s been a really long time coming, but it feels like it was meant to happen now.”
Lawley says she was inspired by “strong, not-too-skinny” models of the '90s, like Linda Evangelista, and hopes she can be inspire others the same way. “I do try to respond to comments I receive on Facebook,” she said. “Some girls struggle with confidence, so it’s nice to be able to talk to them.”
This plus-sized beauty is trying to redefine what it means to be beautiful. “I genuinely want companies to take notice and start being more realistic about who their customer really is,” Lawley said. “I hope to keep breaking down those barriers.” It will be interesting following her career.
These are some new photos of Lady Gaga done by photographer Terry Richardson. I don’t know why that surprises people, that Gaga and Uncle Terry are tight – he’s photographed her for years, and he even acted as “tour photographer” for about a month during the first part of Gaga’s current tour, and from the looks of these photos, he’s back on tour with her. Reason why I believe these photos are current: Gaga’s little dog, Fozzi Bear. Anyway, in the photos you can see Gaga posing with Fozzi, sucking down oxygen in between stage set-ups for her show, giving Terry the finger, declaring that “Turbans are the new Jesus” and being very Gaga-ish in general.
Meanwhile, do you remember how Lady Gaga and Lindsay Lohan are BFFs after they had some kind of weird (coke-soaked?) party at the Chateau Marmont earlier this summer? Well, after Lindsay tweeted those photos of “her” jewelry over the weekend, Lady Gaga tweeted back, “@lindsaylohan ummmm are those my earrings??? this is awkward…:) kiss kiss chateau bunny.” Which is funny because A) Lindsay is a Crack Monster who steals everything that isn’t nailed down, so YES, those probably are Gaga’s earrings and B) Love the reference to the Chateau Marmont, because Lindsay got kicked out the Marmont for being too crackie to pay her bills. I checked Gaga’s Twitter last night – she had deleted the tweet! Hahahaha.
We've gotten used to seeing Alicia Keys in low-key "mom" clothes, often consisting of jeans, leather jackets, chunky glasses and sneakers (trendy Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, but still). But the singer proved she's still got that sexy edge with a teaser pic for her latest album, which she posted on Wednesday on her website.
For her fifth studio album, Keys chose the name "Girl on Fire" because "that’s exactly how I feel!!!" she wrote in a post today. "... I felt like it was time to stop making excuses for any part of my life that I wanted to change. Once I made that choice I became a Girl on Fire, the lion broke free!!"
Anna Kournikova is still turning heads as you can see at her recent photo shoot that took place in Miami at the Mondrian South Beach poolside.
