Making Up

L'Wren Scott is best known for her expert fashion styling and designing (Nicole Kidman is one of her most loyal clients), but now she has branched out and created a limited edition makeup palette with Lancôme.

It's available exclusively from Sephora.


How witty is this London Taxi clutch, that can also be worn as a handbag thanks to its detachable strap, from Lulu Guinness.

Love it.

£ 295, from Lulu Guinness.

Happy Thanksgiving

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

In honour of this special event, gift a loved one this fabulous Lulu Guinness Stars & Stripes snakeskin Lips clutch.

£ 395 from Lulu Guinness.

Christmas Wish List

Christmas may be a month away, but it's never too early to draw up your wish list of presents.

Personally I love this Lanvin satin leopard-print travel kit, which includes slippers and a sleep mask. A no-brainer gift.

$ 490, available from Bergdorf Goodman.

Another favourite is this Collier de Chien bracelet from Hermès, in rose gold and pavé diamonds.

Price upon request, from Hermès.

If I had a driving license, I would dream about owning this Tesla Roadster.

Price upon request, from Tesla.

Back in the real world, I would be so happy with the very cutely packaged Anna dello Russo scent.

$ 25, from Yoox.

Cover Star

Carine Roitfeld has invited Tom Ford to guest edit French Vogue's Christmas issue, as well as grace its iconic cover (albeit accompanied by a model).

I personally cannot wait to see what the issue has in store...

Time's Up?

Karl Lagerfeld, the kaiser of the fashion industry, continues to deny that his contract at Chanel will expire in 2012.

What's more, he also denies that Alber Elbaz, widely believed to be his successor, will follow him into the legendary office on rue Cambon.

“I have a contract for life so it all depends on who I would like to hand it to. At the moment I’d say Haider Ackermann,” Lagerfeld has told Numéro magazine.

Loving Lanvin

Love the promotional video for Lanvin's collaboration with H&M.

Most of all though, love the asymmetrical cocktail dresses and accessories, that look way too qualitative to be sold at H&M...but then again, masstige is the word du jour...

Eternal Flame

To celebrate its century of existence, Elizabeth Arden has created a limited edition, scented candle illustrated with sketches of its prestigious 5th Avenue address in New York.

I'm sure it smells fabulous, but I think the packaging is the best part.

Fashion At Your Fingertips

For quite possibly the most fashionable manicure in the world, commission the young London artist Georgia Rose Fairman to paint your nails.

Her Fashion Designers set includes the nail-sized likenesses of Karl Lagerfeld (my favourite), Donatella Versace and Giorgio Armani.

It's fashion at your fingertips.

Fashion With Benefits

I have to say that I wasn't overly excited by the news that Gucci were about to launch their first childrenswear line.

That was, however, before I found out that a share of the profits go to the very worthy charity Unicef.

In this behind-the-scenes video of the shooting of Jennifer Lopez for the new Gucci campaign, complete with Gucci-clad twins, find out what inspired the actress and singer to sign up her son and daughter to the brand:

On The Slopes

Chanel never never put a high-heeled foot wrong in the fashion stakes, so why would they take any other approach when decide to design sports equipment?

Check out these fiberglass, trompe-l'oeil quilted-effect mini-skis. A must if you are headed to Gstaad this winter.

Quote of The Day

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Carine Roitfeld was asked, "What would be your song?"

Her answer: "You're So Vain. I think in this business, it's a good song. It's dedicated to a lot of people."

Still love her.

Olivier Twist

Olivier Zahm, Founder of Purple, the influential avant-garde fashion magazine, isn't a fan of bloggers; indeed, in the interview below, you can find out why he "hate[s] them all".
