Arizona Muse for Louis Vuitton Cruise

Louis Vuitton’s latest Cruise campaign can have all the lush green palms and azure blue seas in the world – when it comes down to it, the thing that makes us want to step into Arizona Muse‘s tie-up espadrilles is her hair and makeup. They’re the elements that pull the campaign over the line, the icing of romantic idealism to the sponge cake of holiday travel. The waves in Muse’s bob undulate with a mix of modern ease and 1920s / 30s glamour (the same formula, one supposes, that the clothing was based on), with dark winged-out eyeliner as the finishing touch.

Versace for H&M Launch

Donatella Versace arrives at the H&M store on London's Regent Street this morning

"I love London," said Donatella Versace at the launch of the Versace for H&M collection this morning. "It's so exciting. We drove around this morning and saw all the people who have been waiting. It's incredible." As for whether she had ever wanted something enough to sleep outside over night to ensure she got it, the iconic blonde was reflective. "Hmmm, maybe a concert," she smiled.

Ski Bunny

V Magazine’s “The Model Issue” would hardly be complete without a few beauties of Victoria’s Secret fame spreading their wings within its pages. Candice Swanepoel appears in the shoot Ski Bunny which ventures into the potentially disastrous territory of Pamela Anderson-esque blonde bouncy hair and red hot pants, paired with (the very practical ensemble of) white patent knee-high boots and fluffy white faux fur. But this is a shoot that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is ski bunny by the definition of ladies of leisure, trophy wives and barbie dolls, and Candice pulls it off with a retro kind of flair. One shot seems to tip its hat to Farrah Fawcett with flicked out curls and tanned skin, a white turtleneck and red fur-lined hood. An interpretation of ski bunny that borrows from the 70s, the 80s, and the now.

Armani Hotel Milano

Giorgio Armani was on hand to open his brand's new hotel in Milan yesterday, in the upper floors of the Griffini-designed, Thirties building that already hosts his Via Manzoni flagship store (picture on the left). 

Following the opening of the Armani Hotel Dubai - located in Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building - the 95-room Milan hotel aims to continue Armani's commitment to create a atmosphere conducive to "work, relaxation and pleasure". 
As such, the hotel boasts a business centre, with conference rooms and IT facilities; a seventh-floor glass restaurant with views of the Duomo; and a eight-floor, panoramic beauty and treatment centre, gym and pool. 

As if confirmation of the perfection of the space was needed, one look at the architects' plans for the hotel reveals that the building itself was created in the shape of an "A".

Pop that collar

Every so often there is a designer who either introduces a trend or regurgitates it in fantastical ways. Danny Tang is one of those creative brains who dedicated his first season in 2009 to accessories such as shrugs, collars, belts and neck pieces; a collection of edgy romantic "add-ons" to glam up any LBD-esque look. He then went on to become a sought after brand amongst the press and is still going strong with his range for spring 2012, titled: "A new Dimension".
