Following the announcement of the Disney and Barney’s partnership this summer, comes the unveiling of a short film created by Disney showcasing la nouvelle fashion muse, Minnie Mouse along with a cast of fashion’s finest including Carine Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo, Mario Sorrenti, Alber Elbaz, Lady Gaga, Linda Evangelista, Daphne Guinness, Naomi Campbell and many more.

Once again, Richard Mortimer and the team at Ponystep have delivered some rather iconic imagery for the third issue of the magazine. This time the covers are a celebration of all things British, feating five Brits – all shot by Miles Aldridge. Check out Georgia May Jagger, Amir Khan, Joan Collins, Jourdan Dunn and Daphne Guinness below.

Creative icons Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld have teamed up to create a book and digital exhibition featuring one star – the little black Chanel jacket. That which, according to Lagerfeld, “symbolises a timelessly fashionable form of nonchalant feminine elegance: [which] belongs to every era”.

The exhibition features over a hundred models and celebrities, all photographed by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld. These include Sarah Jessica Parker, Daphne Guinness, Georgia May Jagger, Alice Dellal, Maïwenn, Laetitia Casta, Virginie Ledoyen, Baptiste Giabiconi, Uma Thurman, Kirsten Dunst, Akuol de Mabior and more. The images for the project were shot in Cannes, in the South of France, and then in New York, before finishing up in Paris in Karl Lagerfeld’s studio. Visit to experience it in full and check out some highlights and the behind the scenes video below.

Few words are actually needed to described how out of this world Daphne Guinness looks in the January 2012 issue of Vogue Germany photographed by Bryan Adams. If you can even.

I cannot get enough of this editorial. Those of you who have been to the FIT exhibition will understand the grativas and stylistic awe that Guinness has brought to the fashion industry, and this shoot for Muse Magazine by Markus Klinko and Indrani is another layer to the icon’s flawless and perfect demeanour.

Nick Knight + Daphne Guinness. You cannot get much more flawless than that. On September 16, Guinness unveils over 100 pieces from her wardrobe in the Fashion Institute of Technology exhibition of her namessake, along with films, videos, and images, of and by the style icon. To support the exhibition, here is a stunning promo image shot by Nick Knight. Full details of the exhibition that runs until January 2012 can be found here.

Didn’t think it could get better than Jared Leto for ZOO? It just did. Check out Daphne Guinness’s cover for the very same magazine shot by the very same man, Bryan Adams. Rumour dictates that Daphne is wearing the contents of her own wardrobe throughout the entire pictorial.

Tom Ford made his long-awaited womenswear comeback on Sunday night. It went down phenomenally well. The photos? The intricate details? ALL under strict NDA until January (apparently). Photographer Terry Richardson was the official and ONLY snapper for the night and the images are being held back. Did some of them leak? Officially, no. Did someone break the embargo? It looks like it. Cathy Horyn posted some behind-the-scenes photos on On the Runway (one of our favourite and best written fashion blogs, ever). Will she get in trouble for it? It is Cathy Horyn and the NYT – probably not.

What else leaked? Some super sexy head shots of the celeb cast including Julianne Moore, Beyonce, Daphne Guinness, Lauren Hutton and more. We’ll make to share Terry’s images once they finally hit (in January). Stay tuned.


So last week we promised you feedback on Friday’s Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden Panel Discussion with the incredible John Galliano, Nick Knight, Lady Amanda Harlech and Colin McDowell…so here goes.

As far as interactive debates on fashion go, the content wasn’t anything groundbreaking, however being in the presence and hearing the thoughts and opinions of these industry leaders, and being part of an intimate audience with the likes of Daphne Guinness and Gareth Pugh was a rarity and honour.

Fashion enthusiasts from all around the world were invited to join the debate by sending “tweets” and questions to, before and during the talk – which was streamed live from Topics discussed included commerce and creativity, campaign photography and film creation, whether fashion film is a silent movie, luxury brands and e-commerce. A highlight and key thought to leave you with (that I am sure mediacation readers will appreciate), came from the inspirational Daphne Guinness: “Fashion is art and should be given its credit”.
