We’re so glad Neville Staple has ditched the dodgy mid-90s dreads and is looking shipshape for the (partial) Specials reunion. Proving that the Rude Boy look is timeless and stylish, Neville sports a hat and check shirt. Simple and effective.
“The parties tonight are great, but they don’t compare to three days ago, when I sat by the Seine on my own and smoked cigarillos. It’s my favorite thing in the world. I smoke this brand La Paz–they’re cheap but it’s what I always buy. And then, I peed into the Seine. It’s the best thing I did all week.”
In the aftermath of the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala, fashionistos/as across the world have been gorging over that turban, Madonna’s wackiness, Rihanna’s brilliant tux and Naomi’s beautiful boycott. However, it emerged today that off the red carpet a fight was on and statements are being made across the fashion universe in response to reports that Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCullough was headbutt by 24’s Keifer Sutherland after McCullough supposedly knocked Brooke Shields over.
Calvin Harris, the Dumfries-born DJ who is often tipped with providing the backing track to the vintage wave of last summer, is currently topping the charts with his ‘I’m Not Alone’ and while watching his latest video I was suddenly aware of the BOT male’s striking similarity to another No. 1 popstar…
When my English teacher announced we would be studying ‘A Streetcar Named Desire,’ I have to admit to a light leap of the heart as I reminisced on John Galliano‘s ‘Blanche DuBois’ collection of 1988 and Marlon Brando in all his retro glory; oozing sex appeal and hard-edged fashion prowess. With these thoughts in mind, and a bit of time spent re-watching the iconic film made in 1951, I set about creating an outfit based on the look of Stanley Kowalski.
Tavi, the famously fab 12 year-old blogger, is often cited as one of the most fashion-forward figures of the current style circuit. Fashion folk worldwide tune into her Style Rookie blog each day to get a glimpse of her latest get-ups and commentaries. When I saw this photo of her wearing her classic Slow and Steady Wins the Race sunglasses, I was reminded of one of my favourite males and his similar sunnies.
Celebs already make us jealous with their post-Christmas holidays in the Carribean, the Bold and the Beautiful have been out at Coachella, the first festival of the summer.
From David Hasslehoff to Jared Leto the US stars were out in full force, having a lovely time but we also had some Uk slebs representing, with Agyness Deyn and Henry Holland putting in an appearance.
Dizzee Rascal is back, with Bonkers, a track which sees him collaborating with Armand van Helden. The naysayers have been saying it’s half-arsed or a bit cheesy but I like it, whether I’ll still be saying that come summer when I’ve heard it more times than I’ve seen checked shirts on the tube.
Preppy on the top, skatewear on the bottom, Johnny Knoxville was snapped coming out of John Waters‘ opening at the Gagosian on Saturday. Knoxville starred in the King of Camp’s ‘Dirty Shame’ so it’s no surprise to see him at the private view for ‘Rear Projection’. ‘Dirty Shame’ a satire on sexual values which, funnily enough I saw this weekend and stars Knoxville as a kind of sexual Jesus.

Sander Reijgers’ sex doll hoodies have been a mini-internet phenomenon and it’s not hard to see why. The hoodies are witty, but sympathetically so, which probably goes some way to explain their popularity, but we spoke to Sanders himself to find out more.
Today marked the launch of the Umbro England kit, with a special preview for press. The kit is being officially unveiled tomorrow at the England vs Slovakia match, but take my word for it when I say it’s pretty special!
We caught up with the trio behind the innovative design today and grilled them on the creative process behind this launch. David Blanch is the creative director for Umbro and an ex-footballer but his love of fashion runs deep. He has worked at the RCA which also was home to Savile Row tailor Charlie Allen for a while before he launched his own label.
