Please tell me that you are aware of the fashion + foodie magic created by Luxirare...
We've featured a few of her looks in Au Courant Magazine before, and one of our recent favourites from her collection is on our Last Minute Gift List (out later today in the current AuC Mag!) so you should be up to the times on her work.
And in the slim chance that you have yet to marvel over her wonders, do check out the designer's latest editorial, Supreme Being.
With makeup, styling + select pieces provided by Luxi, photography by Julia Chesky and braver-than-brave, outdoor winter posing by Supreme model Iana Godina, it makes for a minimal/moody, yet feminine set of snaps...
I dare you not to fall in love with the styling, those wicked shoes by Giambattista Valli + D-Squared, and most of all, with Luxirare's covetable leopard, calfskin jackets...
Note to Luxirare: Do put one of those coats in your webshop as soon as possible!

These are a few of our many favourites from the best runway show we didn't get a chance to attend. Back in September, the folks over at Ana Locking sent me an invite to attend Madrid Fashion Week and view their SS2011 collection, Insides.
But since I was already booked to check shows at NYFW during the same period, I just couldn't make it...
Nevertheless, the team sent us shots from the showing and I eventually got to do some fun, Fashion Associations with Ana Gonzales, the Spanish designer behind the label. So check out the mini feature and our favourite looks from the show in the current issue of Au Courant Magazine, online tomorrow!
And in the meantime, let's ogle and dribble behind some accessories from the show. Those shoes - my word! Even though they're rather reminiscent of those Acne nail-heels we love, I'm still feeling thees Ana Locking pairs - they're so minimalist-sexy!

That's our sometimes-girl, Rihanna, on vacation earlier in the year. And that's her custom Johnny Vincent bikini, made for her by the label's Vincentian/American designer, Celeste Johnny.
Celeste just told me that all her swimwear styles (possibly including the one above) are up for grabs via her limited online sample sale; pieces that were originally $200.00 are now going at about $60.00...
