Models: they’re just like us! Eating burgers in a dive bar, vegging out in front of the TV. Except in Olivier Rousteing‘s world, the Balmain army does the mundane in strap-heavy PVC and Mondrian-inspired leatherwear.

Balmain’s new SS15 campaign sees Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Isabeli Fontana and Crista Cober embracing the fetish factor of the everyday. Mario Sorrenti back on photography duties after his AW14 campaign for the French house.

“Balmain is all about diversity,” Rousteing said in a release. “The incredible power that all those strong women bring in front of the camera, put into real life situations, helped me explore and create a new reality that represents the pop aspect of my generation. The Balmain reality, my reality.

He added: “This is the new Balmain army and the game is on!”

Baby It’s Cold Outside

There’s no getting away with it, you gotta wear a winter coat now. I’ve had this coat for a while now, and I call it my Paddington Bear coat, because he always wears a blue duffle coat. Over sized blanket coats were key this season; Chloe’s runway show featured two beautiful cream, and dusty pink Alpaca coats, which seem to have sold out everywhere, probably fortunate for my bank balance. I’m also sick of wearing trousers so i thought it was time to get those legs out!

Merry Fendi Christmas

Now that’s what I call a Christmas tree!!

This year, within the courtyard of Hotel de Russie on the Roman Street Rome Via del Babuino, between the famous Spainish Steps and Piazza del Popolo you will find Fendi’s impressive Christmas tree.

The tree features 350 Fendi baguette bags done in silver and gold. OMG santa did deliver this year! Each bag lights up when Rome’s sun sets – providing a festive feast for the eyes.

At the base of the five-metre tall tree sit Fendi’s newly revealed characters – the birds that illustrated the QuTweet collection.

Chasing Shadows

Perhaps I should have called this Chasing The Sun instead…It seems to be a continual pursuit of mine, whether it be for a photograph, or perhaps because I’m a vitamin D junkie; or maybe because in the UK, we’re somewhat starved of sunshine throughout the winter months. So grab it while it lasts!

Seeing as it is the festive season, red seems an appropriate colour to be sporting. Today I teamed a red flower embellished jacket, with some skinny leopard khaki print jeans.

Chanel: Reincarnation

Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne feature in Chanel’s short film Reincarnation. The two stars sing new track CC The World, which was specially written for the project by the Happy hitmaker at the request of Lagerfeld. The film was produced in celebration of Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’art collection which was held on December 2nd in Salzburg, Austria.

The video tells the tale of the house’s founder Gabrielle Chanel, and her inspiration for the jacket synonymous with the brand, as envisioned by Lagerfeld.

Played by Chaplin (who appeared as the iconic fashion stalwart in Lagerfeld’s previous short film The Return), the story line follows Chanel going on holiday to Austria in 1954, where she spots the hotel elevator hand – played by Pharrell – which is soon revealed as her inspiration for the jacket.

Pharrell portrays Franz Joseph I, the Emperor of Austria, in a dream sequence imagined by Chanel, dancing an imperial waltz with his wife, the beloved Empress Elisabeth ‘Sisi’ of Austria – also portrayed by Cara. The track CC The World not only refers to Chanel but also pays reference to Sisi.

I do have a thing for jeans printed jeans, and these Acne jeans are no exception. The mix of blues, kharky greens, and yellow hues blend together like a water colour painting. So I teamed it with a textured canary yellow top to emphasise the yellow, and some leopard shoes for a fun twist :)

Yes, we’re eleven days into the month, but I feel like I haven’t posted a new look of mine since October. Today I was experimenting with some new make up ideas, dark lips with no eyeliner or mascara, which give you a very different look. It’s a little edgier for me, and I’ll probably be adding the extra eye make up later, but its always good to try something new! What new make up ideas have you tried lately?
