Every year there are pieces that become repeat offenders: out of the hundreds of looks presented each season a few manage to monopolize editorial space and show up in just about every magazine. When you see the same piece in different images the importance of styling, hair & makeup really becomes evident – one wrong element and the clothes can look unappealing.
Lately we’ve been noticing a very chic Yves Saint Laurent coat popping up in editorial after editorial, looking different in each picture. Made of “pale green lace jacquard with black cornelly embroideries” the coat was look one during the spring / summer show and looked pretty fetching on Kasia Struss. In the magazines the same look takes on a variety of guises: in the pages ofVogue Italia it turns into a harlequin costume for Querelle Jansen, while Harper’s Bazaar uses it as a retro topper for a blonde Bette Franke. W Magazine focuses on the graphic print with a black and white shot and some serious eye makeup on Cara Delevingne, while Elle goes in a flamboyant direction placing it on top of a red satin bra and a knit skirt from Chloe.

Mulberry’s spring ads are the stuff of Tumblr dreams, Lindsey Wixson, Frida Gustavsson and a giant melting ice cream cone byTim Walker? The sugar level is off the charts, but who can resist such a sweet treat?! Shot on location in Brighton with set design by Andy Hillman and styling by Edward Enninful, the girlish ads are joyful and creative. Those cream colored Bayswater satchels and bright high heeled wedges are almost as tempting as the massive hard candies.
If you had any doubts about Arizona Muse being one of modeling’s biggest stars take a look at her Vogue track record. Not only is Miss Muse on the cover of February’s British Vogue sporting a devilish grin shot by Patrick Demarchelier, she’s managed to rack up six other Vogue covers in just over a year. If we were her we’d be smiling too – looks like modeling’s numero uno Lara Stone (the only other girl to snag six Vogue covers in the past year) has a little competition.
