God Jul

December 3, 2007/11.06

Christmas is set to be glamorous over at Hennes & Mauritz: we preview some of the Swedish retailer’s offerings for the season. Some of the trends are what you expect: plenty of metallics in party wear and in underwear. And for those of us who’ve followed the brand’s end-of-year collections, this is very much in […]

Arizona road trip

/8.32

There are a lot of connections between myself, Stanley Moss, Pierre d’Huy, Lucire and the Medinge Group. Rather than explain things too much, I’d like to share some photos that won’t be in a future Lucire from Stanley, who serves as travel editor: after all, this blog is about the behind-the-scenes happenings at this magazine […]

Is it safe to co-brand with Kate Moss yet?

December 1, 2007/5.01

  If Kate Moss has cleaned up her act since being exposed for doing lines of cocaine by a British tabloid in 2005, then it is right for those who have a demand for her to ask her to be their spokeswoman. Donna Karan is the latest to hire the British supermodel, who is reportedly […]

Off to Sydney

/4.19

  We’re so used to Doug being the guy with the camera that at his own farewell at Wellington Airport, no one had one. Except those cameras on those newfangled cellphones. Alas, here is Mr Rimington heading to the gate in a less than stellar photograph—probably the way he prefers it since he doesn’t like […]

Times of India runs phony Victoria’s Secret story

November 30, 2007/23.17

Spotted at the Times of India on December 1: Australian model Miranda Kerr has revealed Hilton acted like a princess backstage at a lingerie range fashion show and stole her gorgeous runway out?t.    The 24-year-old model has revealed the whole incident on a blog, which ultimately left the hotel heiress humiliated when she had an […]

On the blogs: a real story about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

/23.01

Spotted on Stevie Wilson’s LA-Story site: a video on the casting of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Yes, really: it’s from the show, rather than Heatherette two years ago (I see even the respectable Times of India has reported the Miranda Kerr–Paris Hilton non-incident with the wrong year and venue now).    The show is […]

Personalities in antipodean fashion

/10.34

New on Lucire: one interview, one pro?le. Earlier this year, I did a “?ve years on” follow-up on Murray Bevan, whom I ?rst interviewed when he started Showroom 22 in 2002. Back in ’02, I had a feeling Murray would do incredibly well with his PR company–high fashion showroom (we always did have a record […]

The Delta Goodrem–Brian McFadden about-face

/5.18

[Cross-posted] I spotted the below on Ninemsn today and thought, ‘Poor Brian.’    I clicked on the ?rst link and found quite the opposite:    It’s not as embarrassing as the network, and the Murdoch Press, reporting on the Miranda Kerr incident two years late and getting the venue wrong, but it’s still an about-face.    Netizens will […]

San Francisco Chronicle reports Miranda Kerr–Paris Hilton incident

November 29, 2007/12.11

Fascinating: after our post exposing the Miranda Kerr v. Paris Hilton incident at Victoria’s Secret to be false—or at least ridiculously inaccurate, with media outlets getting the year and the venue wrong—the Chronicle’s SFGate.com still reported it. It has taken the post down now, but not before Google News found it:      Yes, we are […]

The Miranda Kerr v. Paris Hilton incident actually happened in 2005

November 28, 2007/12.56

Quite a few people will have caught the gossip that Miranda Kerr, the Australian model, was upset when Paris Hilton waltzed in to a Heatherette show in 2005 and chose a pink dress that Kerr was scheduled to wear on the catwalk. The organizers obliged and Kerr decided she would leave the matter to karma. […]
