Coco Rocha was invited by ElleUK to do a 25-page shoot for it’s 25th birthday.

I can honestly say it’s one of the most sexy, evocative, electrifying, want-inducing shoots I’ve seen in years.

It’s an hommage to the Jane Fonda movie “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” which is all about a dance marathon held during the American Depression. The idea was dance til you drop.

And man was the shoot convincing. I feel like taking a puff of my Ventolin just looking at these pics.

Clare Kambamettu - 51st Rose

(I have never heard that Father Ted quote bandied about so much as I have over the last few days…)

Now let me preface this post by saying I have nothing against the Rose of Tralee (except the fact that at 26 you’d be too old to enter it). On Monday I was listening to Sinead Gleeson on The Last Word and she raised a very valid point. The Rose of Tralee is a representation of women that you don’t usually see on TV. And it’s true. The Hills, The City, Big Brother and yes even Sex and the City… they’re all less than flattering representations of the female form. It IS refreshing to see women on TV who aren’t trying to dumb themselves down so that people like them better. It’s bloody brilliant actually.

But Christ on a bike through charity work is the Rose of Tralee twee…

The story goes that legendary fashion photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Pigott were booked and ready to do the shoot. Allegedly they were all on set and everything. Next thing ya know Madonna walks in and says she wants to direct the video. They said great but we’re not paying you. At which point she whips out her iPod, teaches the girls some ‘moves’ and shoots the film in two hours.

Just not feeling this ad at all. The photo booth idea is cute but not very well executed I don’t think. Unless I’m missing something?

A great coup publicity-wise but do ya reckon Miu Miu made an error in judgement? Cos I do…

Too harsh?

god almighty, are there no limits to this woman's fashion prowess?

Kate makes up a third of the i-D magazine covers this month. The other two being Gaga and Naomi (bet they hadn’t counted on her being involved in a war crimes trial though eh?)

I’m loving her do, and I’d wager there’ll be quite a few sporting this style over the next few months.

I’m firmly in the yay camp. Anyone out there think nay?

Following on from Beyonce’s yesterday, here comes another video lookbook that appears to be filmed (as Kitty Cat described it) in a crack den. The full campaign stars flavours-of-the-year Zoe Kravitz and Abbey Lee Kershaw.

Behold the new Alexander Wang Autumn 2010 collection. And I’m not sure I love it. Which is unexpected. Actually you know what? It’s far too gothic for me. But there’ll be plenty who think it’s tha shiz.

(I am genuinely excited about crushed velvet coming back into fashion though!)

What do you guys think?

Eh Bouncy’s new season line is crap. We’re talking studded leggings, sharp shoulders and tattoo transfers. Guuuuuuurl we’ve seen all that before. C’mon you can afford some hip and trendy hipsters to come up with your collection. What gives?

I suppose she wants it to sell. Well it’ll do that anyway. Her frequent bending over in the ad campaign will probably take care of that.

The line is named after her maternal grandmother, Agnèz Deréon. Not to be confused with Tina and Beyonce’s label House of Deréon, this one is a Solange and Beyonce sibling affair.

But to be honest, you’d fare better shopping in Japan on Henry Street.

wool and sequins havent been this cool since yer mam's 80s jumper

Oh Isabel Marant, you are KILLING me. Your fashion is so accessible, so utterly ridiculously divine – I nearly break out in a rash, I get a case of The Want so badly. Now when I say accessible, I don’t mean in monetary terms. We’re talking about starting at over a grand for most of her items in the collection. Still, I reckon this is a look that’ll get turned around on the high street fairly quickly. Hopefully by October, we can have ourselves a few Marant-inspired pieces.

More pics of the A/W 2010 collection after the cut. (But be warned, The Want is infectious…)

When I was 17 my hair looked like this, except it was blue instead of red.  You probably can’t pull off this look if a) you’re ten years older and b) you don’t look like Abbey Lee Kershaw.

What a pisser.

Right I’ll continue bleaching the shit out of it for a while more so.

Emma 'Pixie' Watson

I feel like an unnatural amount of people have been discussing this haircut since the weekend… But how and ever, I wanted to see what ye think of it.

The story goes that Emma has gotten the chop to be in with a chance to star in the English-language version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Topshop has a veritable feast of covetable items in its collection for A/W. Curse being only able to afford one or two things! This dress is actually stretching the ‘high street’ price tag – it costs £225 which converted to euro is 270. And you know they’ll mark it up in euro some more. It’s so gorgeous though, I nearly WANT to get invited to a wedding so that I could have an excuse to buy it.

Check out more new offerings from Topshop after the cut:
