Vogue.com blogger and face of Dolce & Gabbana's Light blue fragrance, David Gandy is set to make his film debut alongside fellow model Helena Christensen. "We can confirm he is doing a film with Helena but are unable to offer further comment at this stage," said Gandy's PR spokesperson.
The model and soon to be actor admitted he would love to play the role of James Bond, "That would be a dream come true." However, Gandy's agent has denied any rumours of him being the next Bond with his representative from Monsta saying, "That's not something that has been offered or discussed but something every man dreams of."
The latest capsule collection to hit luxury store Browns has been designed by the one and only, Henry Holland. Based on his latest catwalk collection, the clothes for this line can only be described as urban and edgy. "The pieces are in line with the rest of our Autumn/Winter collection using the same fabrics, colours and prints just with a slight twist on the base shapes," said the designer.
Expect hoodies, body con maxi dresses and slouch vests, the essence of his House of Holland style. But what makes the garments really stand out is the attention-grabbing acronym boldly printed, well, let's face it, it wouldn't be Henry Holland without this.
"The collaboration came about after a conversation with Jemma Dyas, the then buyer of Browns Focus and we just decided to give a twist to our Autumn/Winter acronym pieces by applying them to some different shapes," Holland stated "We wanted to keep the casual element and just make something a little personal for the Browns Focus customer."
As the September issues of our favourite monthly glossies are regarded as the biggest and most important of the year, there is without a doubt an air of anticipation when it comes to who will land the front cover. As many reporters have picked up on, this year's September issues are flaunting the older icons in our media world: Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez, both aged 41, Julia Roberts aged 42 and Halle Berry aged 44 all grace the September covers of Harper's Bazaar, Glamour, Elle and Vogue, all over the age of 40.
Whilst it seems a little sad that their ages are racking up column inches, the choice taken by the editor-in-chiefs of these magazines could be celebrating life post forty, seeing as we live in a world so focused on anti-ageing. That said, however, many have picked up on the reality that these icons have access to the world's best hair and makeup artists, fitness instructors, even dare we say it, plastic surgeons, and so many reporters have pointed out that these plus-forty cover stars don't actually look their age.
The Cut have even gone as far as to say that by using older cover stars, the magazines are targeting those readers who aren't so keen on getting their information fix online, "maybe these covers are a grasp at the people clinging to their monthly media," they announce, to the point. The Daily News takes a slightly different angle, putting the significance of the covers down to this message, "It's time to grow up if you think youth is everything," whilst their title is a little more optimistic, "September style bibles use Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry to prove 40 is nothing to fear."
I never had a trousers body. I don't have any trousers. Well, I have two pairs of jeans, and one pair of leather pants. I do wear shorts, denim shorts. But I never really follow trends, so I don't really feel affected. So I just stay true to myself.
As if the last Hudson campaign wasn't provocative enough, the brand's ambassador Georgia May Jagger stipped down to no more than a chain thong and jeans for their latest ad campaigns.
On deciding to continue working with Jagger Ben Taverniti, creative director at Hudson Jeans said, "Georgia May is a true embodiment of the spirit of the Hudson brand. She doesn't try, she's just cool. She has that certain Je ne sais quoi."
The campaign was shot by Mario Sorrenti and showcased the brand's new styles such as the classic, custom and capsule.
Riccardo Tisci with Serbian artist Marina Abramovic
When asked to think of the origins of luxurious French house Givenchy, no doubt the relationship between founding designer Hubert Givenchy and elegant Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn spring to mind. Hubert retired back in 1995 from his eponymous label, and now the house finds itself shining under the creative direction of Italian youth, Riccardo Tisci.
Just like Hubert, Tisci has his muses for the house as it stands today, as he revealed his modern day Audreys in the redesign debut of W magazine. Unlike Givenchy, however, Tisci has a list of muses, explaining, "I have what Hubert used to have Audrey. Mariacarla [Boscono], Lea [T], Marina [Abramovic], Courtney [Love], Antony [Hegarty] of Antony And The Johnsons - they're my Audrey".
So in total, Tisci's equation for inspiration equals one Italian model, an in-house transgender model who began working as Tisci's PA, a Serbian artist who's friendship with the designer began after she destroyed one of his exclusively made dresses making it into art, an American rock legend and an androgynous lead singer.
