Behind The Scenes Of Adam Ant's Latest Music Video

31 October 2012

Half way through the week, here's something amusing to gander at!

 Last Sunday I spent the day on the set of the legendary rock star Adam Ant, for the filming of his latest music video. Filmed in the beautiful music room of Hoxton Hall, an eccentric bunch gathered for the filming, i popped along to help style and do my best Victorian wench impression!

A sneaky glimpse into the private rooms of the Victorian ladies... and the Corset factory line!!

For anyone who has not heard of Adam Ant, he was a cult figure of the seventies and eighties, who gained popularity as the lead singer of New Wave/post-punk group Adam and the Ants and later as a solo artist, with ten UK top ten hits between 1980 and 1983, including three No.1s. As well as a singer he was also an actor, having appeared in over two dozen films or television episodes between 1985 and 2003.

After time away from the music industry he is relaunching himself now and a little bit of insider knowledge - the music is Awesome!!!

Lady Grey Productions were brought in to dress our modern day folk into Victorian wenches and bucks, of which we had great fun styling - honestly what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

The gorgeous Sophie from Lady Grey Productions!

The misfits!

The dashing Adam!!!

It's rumoured that the video is to be released before Christmas, in which of course you will see me doing my Victorian Wench thaang!! Adam is also touring and is definitely worth catching, the music is as awesome as it was twenty years ago and being an actor is a pleasure to watch on stage! Check out his tour dates here, i will certainly be popping along when he comes to London, and this time I will not be wearing any restricting corsets!

Saturday Stalking

29 October 2012

As the clouds separated over London and sunlight shone through for a split second on Saturday, I whipped out my camera for a spot of style stalking! 

No surprises style stalking outside the latest Chanel exhibition was as easy as finding a martini in a cocktail bar!! I adore the lady fashionistas leather shorts, they are one of my fav wardrobe essentials, team them with a white silk shirt or rock chic tee and they look awesome!

Fashionably Fabulous

25 October 2012

Last night at the exclusive London club Mortons in Mayfair, we indulged in everything from cupcakes to fashion eye-candy, as LeiVanDash, Marina London, Moxham and Yasmin Kian Kianfar gave us a sneaky peak at their new collections.

With awesome music from a DJ dressed in Marina London SS12, the place was packed with all of fashions fabulous! I loved the chunky industrial look Moxham have in their latest collection, definitely a brand to check out!

Delicate spots by Yasmin Kian Kianfar!

Marina London's bold shapes and colours are gorgeous for next season - especially the jumpsuits, my fav was the white one which would be divine for a wedding 'going away' outfit!!!

I couldn't help but style stalk the editor Louisa Lau from Lust and Found, wearing Marina London.

Finally I caught up with one of my favourite jewelley designers LeiVanKash, who designs the most beautiful handmade unique jewellery. I adore her skulls, roses and animal head rings (which she did a long time before the present trend of these hit the stores)! I will be interviewing this lil lady soon, so rest assure there will be more to come!

Sure enough my 'no shopping' month has been royally forgotten about, as I fell head over heels in love with LeiVanKash's rose gold knucke ring, this I can tell is going to be the first of many purchases from this brand! All the designers are relatively new and are certainly all worth watching.

Last night I wore Fur jacket - vintage, Tee - Black Score, Leggings - Tophsop, Bag - Anya Hindmarch.

Style Candy

23 October 2012

When us ladies do a double take at a fellow lassy, I can assure you guys most of the time it is not the same reason you lot do !!! For me there's only one thing I'm checkin' out and that's their style!!

I Stalked this stylish fellow blogger outside the Saatchi gallery on the Kings Road in Chelsea after she had popped into the amazing Karl Lagerfeld exhibition.

I loved her hat which she got from Topshop recently and those glasses - wowzers!! She caught my style eye instantly and I definitely did a double take at this lil lady!!!

Town & Country

22 October 2012

Although I'm teased for being a 'Pavement Princess' deep down I'm a real country girl! Having been brought up surrounded by fields and dressed from an early age in tweed, you can imagine my excitement as the Burberry AW12 collection was launched. Last week I was able to get my hands on this divine jacket from the London collection, which is in store now.

I am obsessed with my new Olivia Burton watch! Stocked in Harvey Nichols, this 'hot off the press' brand, specialises in unique vintage watches, her animal collection (pictured) has just been released and comes in butterflies, hummingbirds and owls.

The wedge apparently for guys may not be the sexiest shoe but sorry dudes, I can't get enough of them! I'm a sucker for comfy high fashion, therefore, looove my new raffia wedges from Burberry Prorsum SS12 collection.

This weekend we sneaked into the locked away secret gardens of Cadogan Square in Chelsea, where I found ponds, waterfalls and total tranquillity. These little hidden city treasures I love and after an afternoon chilling here my inner country gal is restored to normality!
I wore jacket; Burberry London AW12. Jeans; J brand. Belt; Arrogant Cat. Watch; Olivia Burton. Shoes; Burberry Prorsum.

1960 Meet's 2012, Stalked in Soho

18 October 2012

I always take me camera everywhere with you me, whether it be to grab my fav wholefoods lunch, or a coffee from Foxcroft & Ginger (my new caffeine obsession), with the chance of a spot of Style Stalking on the way!

I StyleStalked this chick in Soho, I loved her styling of 1960s meets 2012!! What attracted me to her style at first was of course those glasses, I adore this style of shades. I have the coolest pair of vintage ones from Mulberry, although I have to admit I hardly ever wear them as I'm too scared that in one of my clumsy moments, I may sit on them!!!

That Little Black Jacket

16 October 2012

Twenty years ago I was obsessed with rummaging through my mothers wardrobes (still am) trying on anything and everything I could get my tiny little hands on, one day I came across one piece which still to this day, she refuses to let me have... Oh yes of course her little black Chanel jacket!! So when this particular invite came through post I couldn't help but smile remembering the teenage tantrums of not being allowed to borrow Mothers LBJ!! Twenty years on nothing has changed and it remains strictly away from my wardrobe!!!!

'The Little Black Jacket' is the amazing new exhibition by Chanel running from the 12th - 28th October. Karl Lagerfeld has collaborated with Carine Roiteld to create a series of photographs of 113 celebrities and fashion personalities wearing Chanel's iconic Little Black Jacket in their own style.

The tweed slightly boxey in style, LBJ, has been an iconic symbol of the brand for decades, after being launched in 1954. What better jacket for Karl to photograph than this one!

Harper's Bazaar's global fashion director Carine Roitfeld, (previously French Vogue) styled each celebrity to perfection, in the style which best showed their personality, check out the Anna Wintour photograph (third down) -I feel this picture suits her to perfection.

Anna ...... ! Who else would it be!!!

Possibly one of my favourite goody bags to date - in it was a copy of the book! Wow comes to mind, this book is well worth investing in, it is one of the most beautiful coffee table books I have seen in a while!! 

The launch was as star studded as the book itself, with the likes of Amanda Harlech, Alice Dellal, Poppy Delevingne and Keira Knightley. If only I could have stayed longer to absorb the fabulous atmosphere of the event but sure enough my dreadful diary management meant I had classically double booked, so after a quick in and out I to dashed off to a Marina and The Diamonds gig! Fabulous days!!!

The exhibition runs until the 28th October and is being held at the Saatchi Gallery Duke Of York Square  Chelsea, and is well worth a visit. My tip for this weekend would be, before visiting the gallery, grab a bite to eat at the Chelsea market which is situated literally next door and has the most diiivine street food!
