I like this magazine cover. It would definitely catch my eye on the newsstands. However, I see and hear about Gigi Hadid a lot so I am not dying to read anymore at the moment. The other features do look interesting though. I would love to the “What Makes An Influencer” and “Spring Fashion Special” as well. They sound right up my alley.

In her interview with British Vogue, Gigi Hadid spoke about her relationship with singer boyfriend – Zayn Malik, her open letter on body shaming and all.

On her relationship with Zayn Malik

“When I’m in LA I mostly stay in because it’s my time off and I like being with my boyfriend and doing art and cooking,” she explained. “We like late-night movies and we order from this amazing place that does lattes and gingerbread cookies. I need coffee to stay up. I’m always like, ‘Babe, let’s go to a movie.’ Then I fall asleep halfway through and he’s like, ‘You’ve seen the first half of every movie out there and you have no idea how any of them end.’”

This made me giggle because I fall asleep halfway through many movies too.

On her open letter

“The response was crazy,” she told him. “From Victoria’s Secret Angels to my friends who are considered plus size, everyone texted me and said they appreciated me saying something. The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure.”

I have read her letter and I am glad she stood for herself and colleagues. No one should be body shamed.

Iris Apfel Lands New Ad Campaign at 94

iris-apfel-600x800

I love reading inspirational stories, they motivate me to aim high and keep chasing my dreams. They keep me going on those difficult days, when things are not going as planned. Iris Apfel’s story is so inspiring, the fact that this ageless style icon is still working in the fashion industry is unreal, her story keeps me going.

 

Iris Apfel, the 94-year-old flamboyant fashionista is the busiest campaign model for this spring season. She is even busier than Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid put together, and it is not looking like she is going to retire anytime soon. You would think a woman who has achieved so much in the fashion industry would be relaxing at her age, but not Iris Apfel. She is a very different kind of woman. She is a the definition of ACTIVE and she is not chilling for now.

 

“Oh my god, I love being busy, I think it keeps me alive. I’m probably the busiest person you ever heard of. I’m busy to the point of insanity.”

 

Iris Apfel is the new face of Blue Illusion, and she features in Blue Illusions’s Spring 2016 ad campaign (and accompanying video below), she also helped style the shoot and welcomed the photo crew inside her magnificent New York apartment:

“All of the accessories in the campaign were mine. I accessorized everything,” she tells PeopleStyle. “I have a very big collection. I’ve been collecting since I was 11 years old. I’m 94 now, so do the arithmetic. It’s a lot of stuff.”

 

 

Iris credits her love of fashion and accessories to her mother:

“My mother worshiped at the altar of the accessory and she taught me that they were extremely transformative. You could have one basic black dress and if you had a group of accessories and you had some creativity, you could make 20 outfits. Change them around. And I learned a lot from that.”

Which is one reasons why she fell in love with Blue Illusion’s designs:

“I thought they have a wonderful product and I’m always interested in clothes that are architectural and suitable for people of all ages,” she shares. “That’s something I really champion and I think they do a very good job on all those fronts.”

Iris Apfel is also working with Kate Spade for the second year in a row on a campaign, and various other fashion projects. Her career inspires me, I find her so intriguing. I can’t believe she is still working, and showing no signs of stopping at the age of 94 years. When majority of us would have stopped working 30 years ago.

What do you think of Iris Apfel? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Gigi Hadid Covers British Vogue January 2016

Gigi-Hadid-Vogue-UK-January-2016-Cover

 

Now I must confess, Vogue magazines are one of those magazines I hardly ever buy. I got some issues on my bookshelf but compared to my huge collection of Elle and Glamour magazines, Vogue magazines are quite a few. British Vogue and Vogue in general, is one of those magazines I think is way overrated. I think the bosses at Vogue, want to appeal to a certain class of people, and alienate the rest, unlike other magazine houses, and guess what, it is working. They have succeeded in alienating most of us. I find most articles in Vogue boring, with little or no substance. However, I am loving the latest issue with Gigi Hadid on the cover.

Gigi Hadid looks amazing, dressed so casually, unlike other Vogue cover girls. She looks like the ‘girl next door’, and I can relate to that. I have heard quite a lot about Kendall Jenner’s new BFF, I see her a lot on Instagram and about on social media in general, but I know little about her. Apart from the fact that she is best friends with some of the most famous young women in the world, and I think she now models, I spotted her on the Victoria’s Secret show debut last month, but apart from that, I know nothing else about this young woman, and I am curious, so I may be buying this issue.

I find her quite interesting, and I am so loving the relaxed look of the cover. It is like a breath of fresh air, compared to the other cover girls, dressed to the nines.

I am also interested in reading more about the other articles listed on the cover, especially, ‘Your Style Forecast for 2016’, and ‘Seven Ways to a Waist’, they sound quite interesting.

I will probably get someone to get a copy for me, lol..I struggle to part with my cash for magazines sometimes, especially when they are over a pound.

Do you struggle to? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely Friday.
