First Look: Miranda Kerr for Mango

Posted in Ad campaign by Nneoma Ulu on December 12, 2012

Miranda Kerr is very much the girl of the moment. Every girl wants to be her (I’ll take Orlando Bloom too thanks) and every designer wants her in their clothes. It’s a sign of our times that Spanish high street label Mango has ditched Kate Moss as the face of their ad campaign in favour of a younger, more fabulous model Miranda Kerr. A preview of the spring 2013 shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin  has just hit and its safe to say that Mango’s sales are likely to go through the roof.

Brits do it best: British Fashion Awards 2011

Posted in Awards by Nneoma Ulu on November 29, 2011

If ever I was given the choice, I would choose to be a Brit girl every time. We just do it better… Here are my faves from the 2011 British Fashion Awards, where Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen scooped up Designer of the Year (duhhhh, who else could’ve won!), Victoria Beckham gave an emotional acceptance speech following the receipt of her award for Best Designer Brand and Alexa Chung beat Kate Middleton to scoop Style Icon of the Year.

Kate Moss and Stella McCartney – my love for Stella continues, the matching jumpsuit and bag ticks all my boxes.

Alexa did not forget to fake tan her legs… but I love that she throws caution to the wind and opts for the flat shoe option almost every time. Such a shame my stumpy legs force me to wear heels.

Oh Giles. Love, love, love the velvet and camouflage combo. Nuff said really.

Goodbye Kate Moss

This is one that I’m not going to shed a tear over. Kate Moss’ fourteenth and final collection for Topshop will hit the stores on November 2nd. Here are some shots of the collection… looks great in print and fourteen collections later, you and I all know it’ll look crap in real life. Wonder whether the rumours about Phillip Green’s daughter will come true.

London Fashion Week: TopShop Unique

Posted in London Fashion Week, Spring/Summer 2010 by Nneoma Ulu on September 21, 2009

TopShop Unique is a performs consistently every fashion week. Serving up (mostly) wearable clothes at relatively affordable prices (considering it is high street). What I like about the collection that it is young, fun and there is no doubt that TopShop Unique is not committed to its followers. The show is always eagerly anticipated and brings out the hip and hot of the London fashion scene. Their Spring/Summer 2010 brought a slightly old looking Kate Moss and rather sparkly Olivia Palermo to the front row.

This collection makes me want to start planning my next Summer holiday in Ibiza. Those pink lips are bound to be everywhere next Summer. Loving the studded shark tee!
