Multi-tattooed perfection, Freja has opened shows for the likes of Christian Lacroix and Balenciaga. Making her debut in 2005 at the fall shows for Prada, Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton, this Danish beauty has appeared in countless editorials for countless international magazines and reportedly loves her tattoos so much she has it written into her contract that she is allowed to have as many as she wants (she even has one on her neck - hardcore!) Hot.
I sometimes wish I was brave enough to indulge myself and splash out, spending £150 on a pair of shoes such as these fine ASHISH Animal Print wedge shoe boots - but I'm just not! Sad, as these are absolutely amazing and just the right amount of leopard, in a less conventional form than top or tights...
Am thinking of trying a 'not-quite-as-good-but-as-good-as-I-can-do-with-no-money' fix it job. Get a pair of leopard print socks, fold them back over some much too ordinary boots and you have a makeshift, cheaper (and, I admit, rather less glamourous!) version. Just make sure you try this in the evening, preferably in a dimly lit bar. And don't let anyone look too closely!
Sophia Kokosalaki's Spring/Summer 2010 collection floated down the catwalk at Paris fashion week in October; drawing on her heritage, white and nude coloured toga slip dresses made from sumptuous silk were a delight - and even more so when this silk is juxtaposed with her loose fitting, elasticated waist leather shorts (I need a pair of those in my life, a more sophisticated and elegant version of my bloomers...) With a ridiculously good eye for detail *note origami style dress detailing and pleating, silk chiffon drapery and sexy short volume* culminating in a tough-pretty leather jacket covered in pearls for the final look, Kokosalaki looks able to continue keeping her trademark flowing look fresh and current.
And this stack of gold fits in beautifully to accessorise the collection.
Watching Paul Daniels and Debbie McGee judge a 'Britain's Best Sausage' Competition... how very BIZARRE. That woman is insanely glamourous though, even whilst having to eat her way through the best part of a whole pig!
