Burton for McQueen.

Sarah Burton has been named as the new creative director of Alexander McQueen. The Mancunian designer who graduated from Central St Martins in 1997, worked with McQueen for 16 years and was credited for finishing the late designers Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, which sadly he never got to finish.

"The creation of modern, beautifully crafted clothes was at the heart of Lee's vision. I intend to stay true to his legacy,"says Burton to

It will be incredibly interesting journey, to see how well Burton can continue on with the McQueen name, staying true to Lee's aesthetic but also moving the brand forward. But then again, who better to do the job than her?

Isabella Blow Film...

I was surprised to find out today that milliner Philip Treacy, will be making a film on the life of the late Isabella Blow. Most famous for being both his and Alexander McQueen's muse, Blow was a fashion icon and was a great influence in putting McQueen on the British Fashion Industry map, when she bought his entire graduate collection. 
It has been confirmed that John Galliano will appear in the film as himself, but no statements have been made as to who will play Blow herself.
I think the film will be an incredible insight into her world, both personally and professionally, and will give fans some understanding to what she was like as a person and what bought about her tragically premature death.

Giles for Ungaro.

It has been confirmed today that Giles Deacon is the new creative director of Ungaro and i think its great news! After weeks of speculation and months of mishaps (meaning appointing Lindsay Lohan as "creative director") maybe now the fashion house will get back on track. Stylist and editor of Love, Katie Grand is also getting involved. So with two such influential and incredibly talented people at the helm i think the future looks incredibly promising. I cant wait to see what Deacon conjures up. Watch this space.

Chanel Resort 2010/11

The house of Chanel descended on St. Tropez yesterday to present there Resort collection. The show screamed seventies, with an array of flowing floral maxi dresses, burnt orange bell bottoms, denim skirts and floppy hats. Of course no Chanel collection would be complete without its signature tweed, which was incorporated in the jackets and dresses. 
I thought the show was refreshing, light, young and a lot different to what we've seen Chanel do over the past few collections. Speaking of young, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall's off spring, Georgia May Jagger, made an appearance on the catwalk looking like a young Brigitte Bardot.
Lagerfeld said after the show, "I never worry about running out of ideas,” he said. “If I was going to, it would have happened before now.” The has certainly proved he still has it.

The Costume Institute Met Gala.

So here's a select few of the dresses from last night's gala and my personal favourites. Emma Watson looked amazing in Burberry and Carey Mulligan looked as cute as a button in her Miu Miu mini dress, which i love...a lot. Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out in a beautiful Halston number from the archives, which looked sensational. 
I also thought Alexa Chung looked amazing in her 3.1 Philip Lim tuxedo. Only she could wear that and pull it off. It personified her signature androgynous style to perfection - it was edgy, yet feminine. 
Anne Hathaway looked like a fairy princess in her Valentino gown, which i have to say was stunning, and Chloe Sevigny looked incredible in her Proenza Schouler, aqua lace dress. The woman never gets it wrong.
