Top Models

Have you ever watched America’s next top model? Do you remember when they ask the contestants to name five current top models?

Can you answer that question? Or have you no idea!

Well if I ever went on the show and had the pleasure of meeting Tyra, these are the ladies I would name as my top fierce five.

 Noemie Lenoir

Although she’s more of a commercial model than one who specializes in high fashion catwalks in Milan. Her beauty and popularity has got her in the top five.

 She’s done adverts for Marks & Spencer’s alongside the legendary Twiggy, has appeared in adverts for Loreal alongside Andie MacDowell and regularly graces the covers of magazines and billboards.

 

Agyness Deyn

She’s only 15!

Kira Plastinina is a 15 year old fashion designer from Moscow, Russia. Yes you heard right, she’s 15!

kira-1

I first saw the designer on the 11th season of America’s next to model and was blown away. The most creative thing i did when i was fifteen was put rips in my jeans and cut the fingers off my gloves…i thought that was very rock n roll.

She is considered to be the world’s youngest fashion designer but no one knows for sure, so lets call her the most succesful with over 80 stores in Russia, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine.

Fashion Hotspot

Ah the beautiful city of London… well when it’s not raining, is definately a fashionistas haven.

This is a scenario that i have been in, you may have too. You have your beautiful new outfit, it’s the best you own, you have your sexy heels and your wearing your pricey bling (definately not from Primark, might even be better than Accessorize). The wine is out the fridge and although it might be cheap it’s still french, so you’re all set to go.

You may think it’s easy to just go into central London and find a classy decent club but you would be wrong !

If you haven’t done your research than you just might end up dancing to minimal techno, with thirty something men, who drink stella and wear their office gear clubbing. A disappointing night to say the least, no matter how much you drink.

It’s a shame for all that effort to go to waste, so here’s a club, which deserves your best outfit.

At the top of the pack we have amika. A prestigious night club in High Street Kensington, this is where the super elite come to party. (You may find yourself under dressed here so don’t be afraid to go all out)

The club has a chandelier room, champagne and cocktails bar, all exquistely decorated.

It is a premiere club meaning that it’s membership only but don’t worry if you put yourself on the guestlist a little bit in advance or book a table, entry into high end luxurxy is yours.

Let’s go swimming!

Time to head to the beach and take a dip! But…don’t forget your sunglasses, hat and bag! this season it’s all about the accessories.

Swimwear this year is going retro!

This is what I imagine Audrey Hepburn would have looked like if she took a trip to the beach. Classy and chic.

It’s all about the one piece.

Swimwear is accompanied by big glasses, a big bag and if you can find one a big hat!

For those of you who enjoy showing off the gift that god gave you, have no fear…the Bikini is still in!

Some designers have opted for a high wasted pant accompanied by waist belts. While others like Gucci and Danielle Scutt have stuck to the low rise, adopting colourful print.

So whether you prefer the one-piece or a sexy bikini, make sure you head over to the beach in style!
