Clio meets Dauphine

March 28, 2008/8.52

This photograph was shot for a motoring-and-travel story about the South Island, New Zealand in Lucire no. 26, but it’s one that won’t run in the print magazine as the quality’s not up to scratch. The light is far too strong, but I like the concept: the new Renault Clio meets an old Renault Dauphine. We […]

How I louvre to see you

/5.10

While Samantha Potes is covering Toronto Fashion Week for Lucire (welcome back, Samantha!), we did receive a release about Kolor Shades from Canada. They’ve just had their opening party in Toronto and sent us some great images from their shoot.    They’re very youthful and apparently these are the latest styles in eyewear, though older […]

Tyra Banks is not quitting Top Model

/4.58

Despite rumours that America’s Next Top Model Tyra Banks and Jay Manuel aren’t speaking, Banks’s representatives has said that she is not quitting the show.    Her departure would be unlikely since Banks herself has a stake in the series. Her company, Bankable Productions, produces the show, as well as her talk show, The Tyra Banks Show.    One […]

‘So these two hermaphrodites walk into a gym …’

/4.35

I wish that was a joke, but it isn’t.    I went to preview a New Dowse exhibition on transsexuality, intersexuality and the transgender community with its communications’ of?cer Mandy Herrick and coincidentally, was told by a friend last night about a situation at a gym in New Zealand.    They had two intersexual (‘hermaphrodite’) clients. Other […]

Wearing Dior, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy wins over English fashion media

March 26, 2008/21.36

The state visit of President Nicolas Sarkozy of France to the United Kingdom has started off on a positive note, if the fashion media there are any indication.    First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was dressed in a Christian Dior grey coat (that grey—the one the fashion house itself made famous) with matching beret, accessorized with a black […]

George Clooney fashion line release an early April Fool gag?

March 25, 2008/1.59

And it’s a hoax—as one reader, who sadly did not leave his or her name in the comments, suspected. George Clooney’s management has said that an email doing the rounds among the fashion media—we and Women’s Wear Daily at least received it—saying that the actor was launching a clothing line is a fake.    ‘I have […]

George Clooney launches his own fashion line in Milano

March 24, 2008/21.38

It had to happen sooner or later. Of all the celebs out there, George Clooney is particularly marketable, not just because of his looks, but because of his social activism. Thanks in part to his politician Dad Nick, the younger Mr Clooney is probably interested in more than acting.    At the Westin Palace in […]

Rescuing the Britney Spears image

March 22, 2008/23.59

With all the negative attention that Britney Spears gets, is it a good time to be marketing her Believe fragrance? It’s what we’ve alluded to in our beauty article online today.    We hope Ms Spears will get well—and that the paparazzi lay off her a little. Unfortunately, the Britney economy is worth hundreds of […]
