(Wolf) Whistles for Roksanda Illincic

Roksanda my dearest, my love, my muse - you have picked up your game remarkably! The flowerly adjectives escape me at present but if I had more than two brain cells to rub together on this Friday afternoon (don't get me started on my week!! 7 AUDITIONS + FULL TIME WORK + PARENTS FLYING INTO TOWN = exhausted Miss M with a bad back from sleeping on the ricketty fold out sofa) I would wax lyrical about this collection. True flashes of inspiration with flashes of a revolution against Spring/Summer lightweight materials and detailing - her embellishments are large, geometric and ultimately almost hypnotic, but not at one moment are they too heavy for this collection. And with names like celadine and milkweed - what's not to love?!

My two favourites:

Very Very Vera!!!

My new Vera Wang slip dress is so lovely it just makes me want to cry! I know it doesn't look like much in the picture below but in my head it's teamed with silky summer dresses, tank dresses, big chunky leather belts and chains - so versatile! So many options!! HOW TO CHOOSE?!?!?!

And I just know that it will look brilliant with my Marc Jacob wedges (

Ahhhhh....I'm such a happy little chicken right now!!!


Susie Bubble, j'adore

Boy can this girl layer!! Her style is so beautiful in it's quirky awkwardness - I just love her. It doesn't hurt that she knows more about the ins and outs of fashion than most other fashion bloggers combined. See more here:

So this amazing boustier-style dress on top is from Stretsis dress and is layered over a beautiful Margiela skirt. And the shoes!!! Don't get me started on those shoes!!! (They're from Acne by the way). Just love. Love love love. *swoons with over-excitement*

Think I have a bit of a style crush!!!!

Li-Lo Sourcing Child for Adoption?

Disclaimer: This is me at my bitchiest!! But in my defence, this girl has annoyed me for so damned long and this is the straw that broke my back!!


So, it has just been revealed that Lindsay Lohan, that beacon of hope and charity in a world spiralling into decay, has been commissioned to front a BBC3 documentary (Blakeaway Productions) exposing child sweat shops and prostitution in India.

Oh, come on.

Let's be realistic here. Lindsay, who is best known for exposing herself to ridicule (not to mention exposing her nether-regions on more than one occasion) is now trying to recast herself as humanitarian and philanthropist?! I'd sooner believe that Russell Brand and Katy Perry are going to live a life of marital celibacy!

Lohan, listen up. I'm sick of this and I have to say, I'm a little sick of you. You've blown it. You were given a peach - childhood success, movie roles other actresses (myself included but definitely no sour grapes here!) would kill for and you buggered it right up. Rehab should have been made mandatory and permanent for you, my dear. For all of you who think I am being a little harsh, let me apologise. I mean no disrespect to 'Li-Lo' or her hoards of compatriots who insist on drowning themselves in booze and drugs, fling themselves out of clubs with underwear exposed then decide to play on the viewer's sympathy in an utterly transparent bid to win back loyalty and respect. But I come from a line of actresses who actually like to WORK. Who respect the system and how it's played and above all, who don't do it for the fame and celebrity but because they couldn't imagine a life without getting on that stage or in front of that camera to channel real emotion and reflect real life. I genuinely feel sorry for you - at the grand old age of 23 you've managed to screw it all up.

So please, go to India, try to squeeze out the requisite tears as you face some of the most incredible poverty in the world. Perhaps before you go you can follow in the venerable footsteps of fellow headline-grabbers and snag yourself a bouncing baby all of your own. By all means, visit child sweat shops (which, by all accounts is like sending an alcoholic to a brewery).

Just pick up a quick knock-off Fendi on your way through, and don't expect me to be watching.

Will Ferrell and Pearl the Landlord

Will Ferrell, you make me laugh all day long. Pearl the Landlord - I just want to pick you up and cuddle you, you crazy alcoholic!! Or at least share one of your four beers with you. Give me a call.
