French vogue

The editor of the French Vogue dedicated half the magazine this month to her favorite princess,Stephenie of Monaco. Shot by Testino and Mert&Marcus the princess looks great potrayed in a cool and natural way. In the eighties Stephenie was the ultimate tomboy and a royal rebel. Her androgyny looks and her naughty behaviour made her number one poster girls during this period .

Top Shop goes Bananarama!

Banorama was a short lived British girl trio in the early eighties with spiky hair and high-wasted stoned washed denim jeans. It looks like Karen Bonser and her design team at Topshop Unique has found inspiration in Bananarama and the pop culture in the same era to create their S/S09 collection.. When are we going to move away from the eighties?? who cares, I think "Cruel summer" might have a comeback this spring!

Janis Joplin

Tie-dye, beads and flares: it's not hard to see why she's one of Kate Moss's fashion inspirations. Gucci's collection may be all about folkish luxe this season, but Janis Joplin (1943-1970) got there first. Fur hats, crushed velvet bell bottoms, beads, bejewelled and sequinned jackets and blouses, bangles and lots of rings. A true fashion icon!
