Murdoch Press claims Sophie Anderton offered sex, drugs

November 24, 2007/23.52

The Murdoch Press, using an undercover reporter who almost goes under cover, reports that Sophie Anderton has resorted to vice (use your imagination) to help fund a property in Notting Hill. There’ll be enough moralists lecturing Ms Anderton on what is right and wrong but let me say one thing about the modelling industry: this sort […]

The Kin hit the Troubador with Josh Kelley and the Pat McGee Band

/22.55

[Cross-posted] It’s not all the time I hit the clubs. There are musicians who can attest to that—mostly because of deadlines or time frames of when they are going on and the distance I have to drive.    Recently the Kin toured with Josh Kelley and the Pat McGee Band for well over a month […]

A long weekend in te Waka a Maui

/11.32

It was a pleasure bumping in to former Lucire cover girl Amber Peebles (above, posing cheekily while eating salad), newly engaged to TV personality and entrepreneur Brooke Howard-Smith, at Style Christchurch last week.    Also present was Lizzie Gray, Miss New Zealand 2006, and both girls were more than ably looked after by producer extraordinaire Andhy Blake.

You’ve seen the video (which has been on the Lucire home page since late October), now read the article: a little more news of Roberto Cavalli and H&M’s collaboration and the parties they had in Roma and New York to kick it off.    We hesitate linking the video in too many places, since it […]

A preview of Panos’s summer 2008 collection

/1.26

Panos sent me some shots from his summer 2008 catalogue in September and gave permission for Lucire to republish them soon after—something we’ve ?nally done today, for those interested in swimwear. I have seen the whole line-up, but we wanted to keep the brief story to the three shots we had permission for. Trend-wise, they indicate […]

Heidi Klum nuts over knockers

November 23, 2007/23.22

Heidi Klum, the German supermodel (I believe we may use that term) stars in a commercial for the telecast of the Victoria’s Secret show next month. The promotion sees Klum joking about her breasts, referring to them as ‘great knockers’, perhaps showing how British colloquialisms have crossed the Pond.    The show, which airs on […]

Glamour comes in sixes

/10.46

When sur?ng the Lucire Facebook group yesterday, I noted the six ladies that showed up in the members’ box were particularly glamorous. And not nobodies: Victoria Bunton of Sequel Events organized the Fashion on Q show last weekend at Peregrine Winery outside Queenstown and is a former model; Mary HD, whom I do not know, is, […]

From 101 to a freak show

/10.21

[Cross-posted] These are some photos from Taiwan, some taken for a friend to whom I promised I would send oddball pics. Let’s begin:    Jiji is the end of the line if you’re heading south from Taipei, and this is the local freak show. There is a Gremlin (not AMC, but Spielberg) and a caged […]

Condé Nast Portfolio is worth the $60 a year

/8.05

[Cross-posted] Every now and then, there’s a magazine that captures my imagination. In 1988, it was Autocar; by the early 1990s, it was Wired, then Fast Company by the end of the decade. Now, the magazine (other than any I publish!) is Condé Nast Portfolio.    I’m annoyed that, like Business Week, Portfolio is next to […]

Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen: the next actress of note?

/4.22

I’m thinking ahead to 2008, as many folks in my shoes would. And I have had some thought about future celebs and who I wouldn’t mind securing for our pages.    When Lucire editor Laura Ming-Wong chose Bruna Tenorio as one of our faces for 2008 in issue no. 24, I noticed that models and actresses […]
