For a while now we've known that Kate Moss will take part in the closing ceremony alongside other big British models like Naomi Campbell and Stella Tennant but even now, it's still unclear what, or who, they will down the runway. The latest issue of Vogue might reveal a clue.
To mark the event and in collaboration with the British Fashion Council, Vogue commissioned Nick Knight to shoot all of the models involved wearing British designers, leading people to speculate that the girls will wear the same brands for the closing event as they wear in the shoot.
In the issue Moss appears wearing a gold encrusted dress by Sarah Burton, as does Campbell, while Stella Tennant appears in Christopher Kane, Lily Cole and Donaldson in Erdem and Vivienne Westwood respectively, Georgia May Jagger in Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn in Jonathan Saunders. I think it's safe to assume that they won't wear the same things but I'm sure the brand choice will be the same.
With the Olympics just around the corner, the details of the closing ceremony have finally been released and as expected, fashion is set to play a prominent role in the festivities.
Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Stella Tennant, Lily Cole and Lily Donaldson will walk the runway as David Bowie performs songs 'Fashion' and 'Rebel Rebel'. Georgia May Jagger will also walk in the show as a replacement for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley who dropped out of the show as a part of her efforts to be seen as an actress rather than a model.
Juergen Teller is one busy man at the moment. He's just wrapped up shooting the fall campaigns for Céline and Marc Jacobs alongside working on his exhibitions at London's Photographer's Gallery and New York's Lehmann Maupin Gallery but it doesn't end there. Alongside these projects, the photographer has been working on a new book.
This book, titled The Keys to The House, is different to his others because the images offer an insight into his life in his country home in Suffolk, rather than focusing on his big fashion work. So apart from an appearance of Lily Cole and Vivienne Westwood, the majority of the images feature his closest friends and family along with landscape shots, nudity and wet dogs.
This month British designers Julien Macdonald, Giles Deacon and Zandra Rhodes are joining forces for a good cause. All three have signed up to redesign the classic red telephone box to help mark the 25th anniversary of Childline. To save you from running around London trying to spot them, Harvey Nichols will display all three telephone boxes in the widow's of their Knightsbridge store.
They aren't the only ones lending a helping hand to the good cause. Corrie Nielson, Phillip Treacy, Lily Cole and architect Zaha Hadid have also contributed to the open-air art exhibition that is set to launch to mark the occasion. A selection of their design efforts will be auctioned off at the National Portrait Gallery on July 18 with all of the proceeds going to Childline.
Back in April Lily Cole was unveiled as the new and first face of The Body Shop. When the news was announced the brand confirmed that Cole will collaborate on special collections as well as lending her face to the campaigns, and this week the first images of her debut collection were revealed.
The limited edition collection backed by the model includes products like Pearl Radiance Primer and Shimmer Cubes are are all 100 per cent vegetarian and cruelty-free.
Lily Cole has worked with some of the biggest brands in the world and now she's been tapped by The Body Shop. Last week the brand announced her appointments as their first global brand advocate and on Thursday she had her first outing at an event in London.
But the partnership isn't like the usual model-cosmetics brand partnership because as well as lending her face to the campaigns, Cole will also help promote their 'Beauty With Heart' campaign, which celebrates the mantra 'look good, feel good, do good'. 'We were talking for a year, and I can’t tell you how inspired I’ve been by the work that [The Body Shop has] done,' the model said at the event. 'I think they’re such an aspirational business, and an aspirational model to other businesses, to show that you can have a really positive attitude to the people, planet and animals, and that you can also be really successful.'
On the red carpet for yesterday's British Fashion Awards at The Savoy in London, Lara Stone played up the minimalism trend in this simple white Calvin Klein sheath dress. Lily Cole, on the other hand, went dark (including exchanging her signature red locks for brunette) in a black dress and leather jacket.
In her light of her domination of the fashion world over the last three seasons, it was hardly a surprise that Phoebe Philo won big at this year's British Fashion Awards. As expected, she walked away with the Designer of the Year award, beating competition from Erdem and Christopher Kane.
Mulberry was another winner on the night recieveing the award for best designer brand, while Nicholas Kirkwood was rightly awarded the Accessory Designer Award and Nicola Formichetti walked away with the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator.
