Victoria’s Secret “Angels” Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel were on hand at the lingerie retailer’s Bond Street store to announce that its annual televised show will be broadcast from London in 2014—and they’d love to see Prince Harry there.
   â€˜We are very excited to be here today because we have a great announcement to make,’ said Lima at the announcement. ‘The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honoured to announce that we’re heading to London this year.
   â€˜We would also like to invite Prince Harry if he would love to come.’
   Swanepoel noted that the Prince would have a front-row seat if he chose to attend.
   It is the first time the show has crossed the Atlantic.
   The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has been a drawcard for viewers on US networks for years. This year’s edition, on the CBS network, includes musical performances, interviews, model profiles and behind-the-scenes footage.
   The show is eventually seen in 192 countries. In the US, it typically is the number-one show for adults 18–49 and 18–34—sought-after segments for advertisers.
   It is produced by Done and Dusted Inc., with Edward G. Razek, Monica Mitro, Ian Stewart and Hamish Hamilton executive-producing. Hamish Hamilton directs.

Tragedy strikes family again as Peaches Geldof, 25, found dead in Kent

Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, has been found dead at an address in Wrotham, Kent. The ambulance service pronounced her dead, and police are working to establish the cause of death.
   A spokesman for Kent police said, ‘At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained sudden death. Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death.’
   Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof, socialite, model, writer, and TV presenter, was 25.
   Her mother Yates had died of a drug overdose when Geldof was 11. Geldof’s final Tweet on Sunday was linked to an Instagram photo of her with her mother.
   Geldof was married to musician Thomas Cohen, 23. They had two sons, Astala, 1, and Phaedra, who will turn 1 later this month.
   Her father, Bob Geldof, issued a statement, reading: ‘Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.
   â€˜Writing “was” destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.
   â€˜Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken.’
   The statement was signed, ‘Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof’.
   Cohen’s statement read, ‘My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons, and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever.’

Designer L’Wren Scott, 49, found hanged in apartment—death treated as suicide

Lucire staff/18.03

Fashion designer L’Wren Scott, 49, has been found dead in her Manhattan apartment, with her death being treated as suicide by New York police.
   Scott was found hanged by her assistant, whom she had texted earlier in the day to go to the apartment, at 10 a.m. EDT.
   No suicide note was found, according to police, whose investigations continue.
   Her company was in millions of pounds of debt. The firm, LS Fashion Ltd., had a loss of £3·5 million, and it had been run at a loss for several years before. Some £4·6 million was owed to creditors, with £1 million due within a year. LS Fashion Ltd. had £1·1 million of assets.
   Scott’s autumn–winter 2014–15 show at London Fashion Week had been cancelled. Late last year, Scott launched a line in collaboration with Banana Republic.
   She was born Luanna Bambrough in Utah. Having reached 6 ft in height by age 12, she learned to make her own clothes as she struggled to find anything that fitted her. She modelled in Paris before heading to Los Angeles to become a stylist and costume designer. Her label started in 2006.
   Her designs were a favourite of this publication, and US First Lady Michelle Obama, and celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Amy Adams, Penélope Cruz and Christina Hendricks were among her fans.
   A spokesman for the British Fashion Council said, ‘We are deeply saddened at the news of L’Wren Scott’s tragic death.
   â€˜She was an iconic woman who inspired so many, and a designer whose contributions to the fashion industry were both extraordinary and unique.
   â€˜She will leave behind an exceptional legacy, however we are so incredibly proud to have had her in our midst.’
   She was the long-term girlfriend of the Rolling Stones’ Sir Mick Jagger. They had been together for nearly 13 years and Jagger had spoken about her fashion collections in the past.
   Jagger had arrived in Australia for the Rolling Stones’ tour there, which may be cancelled.
   Bianca Jagger, Sir Mick’s ex-wife, led tributes, saying, ‘Heartbroken to learn of the loss of the lovely and talented L’Wren Scott. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May she rest in peace.’
   Supermodel Naomi Campbell wrote on WhoSay: ‘I am deeply shocked and devastated by the news. L’Wren was someone I knew since I was 17. We travelled the world together many times. L’Wren was someone I always loved. She was the epitome of elegance and femininity yet still had a girlish quality. I will miss her honesty and I will miss her friendship. My heart goes out to Mick and all who loved her and were loved by her. May she Rest in Peace.’
   Actress Nicole Kidman issued a statement, reading, ‘Nicole and L’Wren were close friends for 25 years. She is heartbroken and in shock right now, and unable to say anything.’

You can play with your hair colour by simply chalking with the colour pad, sealing with hairspray to finish and easily wash everything off with shampoo when you’re done. Sounds like fun?

   The new collection also launches sheer colour lip gloss (NZ$23) and Shimmer Cubes (NZ$42·50) to mix and match colours. Available in store from March 10. For details, check out www.thebodyshop.com.—Christine Min

Tom Ford shoots Esther Heesch, Conrad Bromfield and Carlos Peters for spring–summer ’14

Lucire staff/11.15



Tom Ford

Esther Heesch models Tom Ford’s spring–summer 2014 campaign, shot by the designer himself in London.
   The setting sees Heesch, in the role of a star, surrounded by a male crowd in a nightclub setting, looking seductive in black dresses and shoes from Tom Ford. Trends in the advertisement include leather, crystal embellishments, short hems, perforations, killer heels and thick-rimmed eyewear.
   The male campaign features Conrad Bromfield and Carlos Peters, wearing brightly coloured tailored jackets and trousers.
   The entire women’s collection, shown last September at London Fashion Week, had a harder edge than other designers’ projections for the season. Instead of soft and romantic, Ford’s woman is sensual and powerful. While not depicted in the initial campaign images, the spring–summer 2014 collection also features long-sleeve dresses, leather jackets and psychedelic patterns.
   Ford photographed and styled, while Orlando Pita did the hair, Charlotte Tilbury the make-up, and Liza Smith the manicures. Charlie Parker produced the campaign shoot.
