Amy Winehouse - Dead!

Today it was announced that Amy Winehouse has died after a suspected drug overdose.








Although this woman was an incredibly talented performer she has been plagued with drug problems her whole life and has been in and out of rehab for years, commonly embarrassing herself in the media and earning her little respect in the industry. She has recently pulled out of gigs and tours and instead preached to her fans to buy Dionne Bromfield's album.... 


Although we've heard that she is dead, no further information has been announced.


In all honesty when you hear such news it is no surprise - Sex, drugs and rock & roll always end in tears, but the funeral is going to be one hell of a party.

RIP - Should have gone to rehab not said 'No, No, No!'




If this is all a crack induced publicity stunt - Congrats!


Much Love

Well this is awkward....

Tyra Banks was spotted in New York wearing a pink, spandex catsuit promoting her new book with some fiendish looking models in green.

Despite being an absolute babe and a very good business woman - this is fucking hideous.



What relevance does the fire hat have?!
Oh my god, are those water pistols?!
Walmart?
Classy.



The model 'entourage' is also a little flakey. The model on the left appears to be a bit of a dog and seems to be wearing totally different shoes to the rest of the merry band. Also what are with those 'Blue Peter' style eye patches? Ew.

The debut novel Modelland is going to be part of a trilogy apparently and in this 'street theatre' stunt Tyra is dressed as one of the fantasy characters from the novel.

The series of books are apparently loosely based on Tyra's own experiences as a model - stringing a story that brings a teenage girl and her friends to a pretend place called Modelland.
'Every girl in the world wants to go there because it's where 'Intoxibellas' are trained,' Tyra wrote.
'Intoxibellas are drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce and, yeah, maybe they have some powers too. But I'm confirming NOTHING! Ha. You gotta wait for the book,' she added.

From the photo's it looks like this novel is going to be about a tacky, over-rated, middle aged American woman doing insane stunts in the street in a desperate attempt to prove she isn't over the hill.... in three books.

Can't wait to review this one. Should be a laugh.

The garments ranged from mens underwear to bikinis to sparkling embellished hats with slogans such as ‘Screw you’, ‘play it safe’ and ‘I am bad’.

Zinfinity Jewellery


Creating stunning installations, body adornment and jewellery Zinfinity combines precious materials with day to day plastics for an industrial twist. VIP received a gift from this designer in their goodie bag – a cast brass cable tie tag on leather cord – this is a small taster of the gorgeous designs that Zinfinity creates using reclycling and everyday materials as inspiration. This collections choreography was inspired by a recent trip to Poland Fashion Week where the catwalk shows were slower and more theatrical with the models mostly naked walking slowly down the catwalk with their eyes closed. This showcased the jewellery fantastically and the eery, wailing music provided a perfect back drop for such avante gard creations. 
Music : Erased, over. Out. by Nine Inch Nails

Christina Bonn Lux Lingerie 



Recently graduated Christina creates stunning lingerie using incredibly luxurious materials such as Swarovski crystal, French laces, Italian silks and chiffon. Her underwear creations are stylish, classy and absolutely beautiful!
The models slinked their sexy way onto the catwalk making full use of Studio Valbonnes wrought iron railings, the music was slow and seductive and the underwear, hand made and gorgeous was showcased beautifully. The collection was made up of only six outfits, but that was all that was needed – fully showing the skill of the designer. Hand sewn crystals and silk shimmered under the catwalk lights and this left the show on a high.

Burlesque Act by Mimi Le Noire



Mimi Le Noire has many years of dancing experience which shows in her exotic performances. She performed two of her favourite burlesque acts. The first fitting rather nicely with the summer theme was a ‘Bathing Beauty’ strip tease – ending in Mimi strutting about the runway in tiny beaded underwear and tassels – pulses raced as her second performance reached its climax – dancing to ‘Big Spender’ Mimi showed off more of her incredible dancing skills and flexibility!
