She’s our beloved British Fashion ICON, and he’s one of the most reknowned fashion PHOTOGRAPHERS of his generation, and THIS is the luxe coffee table book that explores fashion’s dynamic duo’s relationship through Mario Testino’s very own photographs. TASCHEN, the publisher, has once again brought a truly mesmerizing paperback to the table – perfect for those of us who, inspired by the industry, love to discover any kind of behind-the-scenes imagery – especially when it comes to Kate Moss and Mario Testino. Flipping through this glossy portfolio in honour of Kate Moss, Testino has shot the British style icon, not only in all states of undress, but in a whole series of moments; dancing in a star-printed dress under a glittering disco ball, looking beautifully coiffured on the glorious slick of red carpet, relaxed and natural on the beach, even lighting-up a cigarette from a candle proffered by Donald Trump. Every page you turn offers another moment with the ICON, another moment that turned her into an ICON...

H&M’s EXCLUSIVE Conscious Collection is OFF-THE-CHARTS stylish this season. I'm completely besotted with the line's gorgeous clean lines, beautiful white pieces, opulent embellishment and decadent detailing. The lace-insert white blazer is truly calling my name for Spring/Summer'14, as well as the slightly bohemian lace dress with chain, beaded cape. To be honest, it's ALL calling my name. It's a line that plays to every event - an entire wardrobe for the new season that you can effortlessly dip in and out of - whatever the event, whatever the weather. There are some surprising details throughout - voluminous sleeves, waterfall hemlines and oriental-themed silhouettes and prints. But, the question is: what will you choose?

For my MADAM RAGE outfit post - it was ALL about this strappy number from the label. With its cute cinched-in waist and detailed, cut-out neckline - it's that classic LBD every wardrobe desires. When it comes to the trends, this is a staple pieces that will work across the seasons - and with it's affordable price tag, it's definitely a statement piece you'll want to have.
High street GIANT Superdry really brought some SERIOUS style for AW14. Showcasing cool bikers, their signature parkas, luxe leathers, gorgeous gilets, luxe faux fur trims and cool camo-print jeans - the brand really inspired my love for layers and easy, wearable statement pieces. The label brought a huge haul of great jeans and washes to the table, perfect for pairing with their cool tees, and ideal for everyday-wear. And, the accessories? They were as awesome as ever. Slick watches grabbed my eye, while their colour-popping beauty range pulled me in instantly. With gorgeous food from Soho House, a nail bar from Cheeky and some guy grooming from Gentleman's Tonic - the press event was an instant hit.

Incorporating delicate silk pleating, shimmering metallics, beautifully soft velvet and luxurious, feminine silhouettes, the young designer’s innovative talent is instantly recognisable.
