This evening at 6pm outside London’s Flagship Topshop store, hundreds of fans stood waiting to get a glimpse of the incredibly beauty, Kate Moss herself.

This is the fashion icon’s first collection in four years, so it has been eagerly awaited by all.

Nick Grimshaw hosted the global launch event outside the shop entrance, introducing the supermodel to the large crowd full of cheers.

Stood wearing her lamé tuxedo suit and black scallop trim cami top from her latest collection teamed with a pair of black staple stiletto Christian Louboutins, Kate Moss smiled with excitement while long-time friend and Arcadia brand owner Philip Green and his daughter Chloe Green watched front row (and even took some selfies!).

Kate said, “I just want everyone to find something they love to wear”.

The crowd were then entertained with a live performance by Duke Dumont before the launch came to an end and some exclusive shoppers were allowed into Topshop to shop the Kate Moss range a day earlier than the rest of the world.

The 59 piece Kate Moss X Topshop Collection is going to be available in 39 countries around the world, and will be available to purchase from Topshop tomorrow, 30th April 2014.

 

So it seems another long term A-List couple are splitting in Hollywood, and this time round it's Gwyneth Paltrow and her hubby Chris Martin.

The American actress and Coldplay frontman announced their separation today on Paltrow's website, Goop:

The couple have been married for over a decade and have two children – Apple and Moses – together.

This is such sad news, as the A-List couple have always maintained privacy despite their very public careers.

Maybe it's the Hollywood curse?

 

Marks & Spencer SS14 Leading Ladies REVEALED

After months of speculation and a drop in sales figures, high street retailer Marks & Spencer have revealed their latest group of ladies to head up their Spring/Summer 14 campaign.

Here’s the first shot:

MS-3276847

The list of ladies who made the cut are:

Lulu Kennedy – Designer & Fashion Guru

Rachel Khoo – Chef, Writer and Broadcaster

Alek Wek – Supermodel, Activist & Artist

Rita Ora – Singer/Songwriter

Emma Thompson – Actress, Screenwriter & Author

Annie Lennox – OBE Singer/Songwriter & Human Rights Campaigner

Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon OBE – Campaigner & Life Peer

Roma Agrawal – Structural Engineer and Advocate for Technical Careers

Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, M&S Executive Director Marketing and Business Development proudly comments:

Our Spring/Summer campaign is a celebration of style and accomplishment. These dynamic Leading Ladies represent the unique and diverse women of a modern Britain. hey are united in their extraordinary achievements but confident in their differences. Marks & Spencer is a democratic brand which is relevant to women of all ages and strands of life; it is therefore natural for M&S to celebrate women in this way. M&S is extremely proud to have convened such an extraordinary group of exceptional women; this campaign is the embodiment of true British style, quality, diversity and success.

Shot by fashion photographer Annie Leibovitiz (who has been busy lately, having also shot the infamous Kimye Vogue cover) the M&S Collection will hit stores nationwide on 31st March 2014 – just one week today!

Within this latest collection, there are four main trends:

Monochrome

Abstract prints

Feminine pastels

Metallics

It’s great to see such a prestigious retailer celebrate and applaud the successes of such diverse women through this latest campaign. Following in the previous footsteps of the likes of Grace Coddington and Darcy Bussell, these ladies are set to boost M&S sales this season.

The world all over is in uproar about the latest American Vogue cover, featuring the infamous celeb couple Kimye (that's Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to those who aren't familiar with their coupledom abbreviation).

Celebs and Vogue fans across the continents think Anna Wintour has somehow “lost the plot” for allowing and putting these two on the cover, when Vogue is supposed to stand forward as THE fashion Bible – but this has been seen as somewhat of a joke.

In response to the haters, Anna Wintour stated:

Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)

Gotta love her slight humour at the end. And let's face it, she is right. They certainly have stirred things up and got people talking – which is exactly what a successful magazine is supposed to do isn't it? Get people talking and sell? And these haters have already expressed how they'd love to buy a copy to burn – so an extra few dollars going into the Conde Nast bank account.

Certainly a controversial decision, but it's clearly worked. Whether people agree or disagree, Anna Wintour successfully surprised her fans tremendously.

Our long-lost Bey surprised the world this morning by none other than releasing a brand new album on iTunes… WITH NO PUBLICITY WHATSOEVER! Talk about a shock to the internet itself – being such a crazy, yet dramatically incredible stunt, our lovely Beyoncé has proved she reigns as the musical superstar.

You've got to admit, that's a pretty ballsy move to make – having said that, being the wife of Jay-Z and already having several successful songs and tours under your belt, along with the cutest of cute little girls Blue Ivy (who BTW has a song dedicated to her on this new album), it would have been more shocking for this to flop. Thank God it was sold on iTunes though or HMV probably would have had A LOT to answer for with empty shelves behind the Beyoncé name dividers. Not to mention it might have been impossible for her to start selling it at 3am.

With an extensive collection of 31 tracks on her newest and fifth studio record, Beyoncé has treated her fans to not only new material, but a dozen video tracks too. What a lovely pre-Christmas treat eh?

Having only briefly listened to the tracks (I've yet to listen to the album in full), it's clear to see our Bey is back and better than before. And boy, have we missed her. Maybe this is another reason she's added more dates next year to her infamous Mrs Carter Tour? New material can only make the tour MUCH better!

Oh and PS: LOVING your pink on black colour scheme, Beyoncé. Woman after my own heart.
