Congratulations Rachel Zoe!

Just days ago, the queen of fashion, Rachel Zoe gave birth to a beautiful little boy!  According to Rachel's Twitter page, herself and Rodger couldn't be more happier with their new son Skyler Morrison Berman.  Congratulations!  I think it's safe to say Skyler will be the most fashionable child ever!

Cleo's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors of 2011!

It's that time of the year again...Cleo's most highly anticipated event of the year... Cleo's 50 Most Eligible Bachelors!!  Just as 'Cleo Bachelor episode' of Park Street aired, as did the release of Cleo's April issue with of course the top 50 Bachelors!  So it's pretty much the hype at the moment, aside from Usher touring Australia!  I picked up the latest issue of Cleo as well as hitting the website and thought I'd give my verdict of this year's bachelors.  This year it was all about the nice guy according to Gemma Crisp (Editor of Cleo) "We have enough drama in our 2011 is the year of the nice guy."  And I totally agree!  So who has my vote this year.. starting with Luke Scott
Luke Scott or better known as 'The Hunk' from MTV's Freshwater Blue and he 100% gets my vote!  He is 25years old and aside from starring on Freshwater Blue he wants to conquer the fashion world!  He currently works as a designer for SABA.  When asked the best thing about being a Bachelor he replied "Taking the time to look for the right girl."  Smart answer, if only the rest answered that way!  He also believes women are over the bad boys and that's true! 
Scott McGregor
 Everyone's favourite neighbourly detective, Scott McGregor.. Or better known as Mark from Neighbours.   This guy has my vote too possibly because I'm a Neighbours fan and his responses were quite humorous!  His biggest weakness is laughing at inappropriate times, doesn't understand why women wear fake eyelashes and claims he'll run nude down Bourke Street Mall if he wins!
Reading through all the Bachelor's comments a few caught my attention.
The questions regarding the craziest things guys have done for girls were quite humorous as well as the slogans for their campaigns and I quote Philip Vakos from MasterChef "I'll be sweeter to you than any Baklava you've tasted!"  Overall, I think this year they are a decent bunch of guys and I can't wait to see who wins!  Be sure to head to to vote for your favourite!  Vote Luke! 

Constance Jablonski for Harper's Bazaar Spain

I believe any excuse for a little Constance Jablonski will do!  This month she is gracing the cover of Harper's Bazaar Spain April 2011, looking ever so amazing!  The issue features Constance, edgy, yet glamorous in a denim inspired editorial, complimented by the works of Tom Pecheux, (Estee Lauder Makeup Director).  

Paris Fashion Week Fall 2011 - Elie Saab and Valentino

Being the fashion obsessed person that I am, Fashion Week is my favourite time of the year.  Whilst I can only wish I was in attendance at Fashion Week, I do the next best thing and remain glued to waiting and just dying to see the collections straight off the runway.  I'm sad that yet another Fashion Week is over, but never fear because it's time for L'oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival! 
As for this Fall season, I absolutely adored the collections from New York Fashion Week, however, I was a little disappointed with some of the highly anticipated collections from Milan Fashion Week... But Paris did not let me down!  Where to begin? Of course with my favourites, Elie Saab and Valentino.

Blake Lively's Chanel Campaign

I've waited in anticipation to see what would happen when you mix a little Chanel and Gossip Girl.. I'm talking about Blake Lively's new Mademoiselle handbag campaign for Chanel.  I think it's gorgeous!!  Mr Lagerfeld himself shot the campaign and I wouldn't have expected anything less than perfection.  The campaign is a little dark, but so elegant, classic and glamorous, I can't wait to see more!

Kelsey for Peeptoe

Whilst Amanda is gracing the runways at New York Fashion Week, Kelsey is gracing the campaigns of everyone's favourite shoes.. Peeptoe shoes!  Kelsey Martinovich, Australia's Next Top Model cycle 6 runner up, was named as Peeptoe shoes' newest ambassador. According to Nikki Hager (founder of Peeptoe) "We feel our customer will relate well to Kelsey's fun loving personality and fashionable style." (FabSugar Australia) I absolutely adore the new and first Kelsey campaign, 'Glam Rebel'!  Oh, and I can't help but be in love with those black booties with bows!
