A new trailer to Baz Luhrmann’s much anticipated The Great Gatsby has finally been released and I have to say it looks as sensational as I hoped. The costumes are by Prada and the diamonds by Tiffany and the whole look of it so far is delicious! I can’t wait! The annoying thing is that(…)
The Boyfriend is one of my all-time favourite movies – if you haven’t seen it I thoroughly recommend it. Twiggy is an absolute all-singing all-dancing star in this 1970s-does 1920s extravaganza as you’ll see in this trailer. I didn’t realise until now that it was directed by Ken Russell… Edited with BlogPad Pro
Wow – if you ever doubted the skill of Bruce Lee you simply have to watch this. He’s playing ping pong against 1 and then 2 people just using Nunchucks (and beating both of them easily). Incredible!
Chanel have recently managed to buy a rare recording of Marilyn talking about her famous Chanel No.5 quote. You know the one: What do you wear to bed? Just a few drops of Chanel No.5… I’ve always worn Chanel No.5, partly because I love it, partly because I knew Marilyn adored it, but mostly because(…)
I needed something to cheer me up this morning, and voila! Thanks to Abercrombie & Fitch’s latest ad campaign you can have a giggle and watch lots of semi-naked male models dancing round lip-syncing to Carly Rae’s Call Me Maybe? Trust me, it’s worth a look and it’ll certainly make you smile
I’ve always wondered how to get 1940s hair, and this video gives a really good (and simple) tutorial about how to create hair rolls – I’ll definitely be giving this a try!

I just found this video showing you how to re-create that twenties flapper look – the big heavy smoked eyes, arched brows and cupid-bow lips! Love it!
A fascinating video showing how the studio created Audrey Hepburn‘s iconic style for the movie Roman Holiday.
My favourite movie of all time – if you haven’t ever seen it please do! It really is the most stylish, witty, romantic movie and this scene always makes me cry (in a good way!) If you haven’t seen the movie, the basic plot until this point is: Charming boy (Cary Grant) meets impossibly stylish(…)
I just love this beautiful dress! Clip from Shall We Dance. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing to “They All Laughed.”
Featuring the wingding, triple-threat and heavenly bodies – all new swimwear for 1952…
I just heard this on the radio and wanted to share, but unfortunately couldn’t find an actual video of the Chordettes singing Mr Sandman, and this version made me smile… Hope you like it!
