Jetset Style

How cute is this new luggage range from Lulu Guinness? Each suitcase even includes its own set of three drawstring bags for accessories.

Call Me Labelfeld

This interview with Karl Lagerfeld for CNN is a fabulous insight into Karl Lagerfeld's dial-a-quote universe, in which he readily admits he is a "walking label" and calls himself Karl Labelfeld...and that when it comes to fashion, a little amnesia can be most useful...

Tom Ford is one of the industry's most successful - and secretive - designers. You must watch the previews below of the documentary he agreed to for Oprah Winfrey's OWN TV channel, in which he opens the doors to his London offices and allows cameras behind the scenes of his private presentations, for the first time.

Power To Wintour

Forbes has named Anna Wintour the 69th most powerful woman in the world, in a list that includes Muccia Prada and Diane von Furstenberg. Clearly, the fashion industry likes to see women at the top.

Dior J'Adore

Dior's new ad for their J'Adore fragrance has just been released. In it, you can see not only Charlize Theron walking in a fashion show set in Versailles' famed Hall of Mirrors, but also Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, and Grace Kelly. Their faces have all been CGI'd in seamlessly. The ad was directed by Seven Years in Tibet's Jean-Jacques Annaud.

Kate Moss For Balmain

The new Balmain campaign was shot by Inez & Vinoodh, and features Kate Moss.

While the photographic duo were shooting Moss, they also filmed her for this short film, titled Everglade.

It shows an unwitting Moss being caressed by cartoon snakes...a little weird, but definitely worth a look!

Black Swan

I haven't been able to go the cinema and see Black Swan yet, so in the meantime I've had to content myself with this behind-the-scenes video.

It gives a sneak peek into the work that went into the Rodarte-designed costumes, and the extraordinary amounts of Swarovski crystal that were used for the set production:
