‣ While you may be getting used to rugging up in a coat and beanie again, it doesn’t mean you can’t plan ahead for summer later in the year. Diane von Furstenberg’s new collaboration with Roxy involves all things beach wear in iconic DVF prints and we are in love! The range includes bikinis, board shorts, cover-ups, beach bags and rashies and you can check out the whole range here.
‣ She’s best known for being covered in tattoos and piercings thanks to her role as Lisbeth Salander in the The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo but Rooney Mara’s certainly becoming more at home in the world of fashion. Mara co-chaired the recent Met Ball with Anna Wintour and Riccardo Tisci (she nailed the glam goth look on the red carpet) and now she’s just been announced as the face of Calvin Klein’s new fragrance Downtown. The campaign shows Mara fresh faced and with super sleek hair and we have to say, she looks awesome. She’s also got killer cheekbones don’t you think?
‣ Rihanna vs Topshop: this year’s biggest fashion catfight? Rihanna is taking the UK retailer to court for $5 million of lost earnings over t-shirts featuring her image for which she was apparently not paid artist licensing fees. Topshop claim to have bought the photograph of Ri-Ri from the photographer but apparently no one gave the singer the heads-up she was going to be featured on tees everywhere! Considering Rihanna’s good friends with Topshop heiress Chloe Green, not only could this get messy but really awkward too…

Before there were fashion bloggers there was Elin Kling. The Swedish blogger and former fashion editor started her blog Style by Kling in 2007 because her friend “forced her to”. We think she owes that friend a massive drink because within two days of launching she was Sweden’s largest blog. Ever since then she’s gone on to co-found Fashion Networks International, is the owner of one of the world’s leading online fashion platforms NOWMANIFEST (which houses blogs by Anna Dello Russo and Derek Blasberg) and she’s also the fashion director of her own magazine, STYLEBY. Kling’s a favourite with big name fashion brands such as H&M and Guess both of which she collaborated with to launch her own capsule collections. She’s also appeared in campaigns for Louis Vuitton and NET-A-PORTER.
Kling’s style is laidback yet polished. Her go-to pieces are black blazers and leather jackets, jeans and silk blouses all worked back with structured heels or boots. She favours black and neutrals, but will on occasion add a pop of colour to add interest to an outfit. It’s a fashion equation that works, and clearly there’s nowhere else but up for one of the world’s biggest style bloggers.

He’s the bespectacled, flannelette shirt-wearing photographer who has shot some of the world’s most attractive people, and now Terry Richardson is getting in front of the lens and trying his hand at being erm, a hand model. Valentino enlisted Richardson to photograph its latest campaign of Rockstud Rouge and Rockstud Noir heels and bags and instead of the usual long-limbed model beauty route, he decided to take some hand selfies instead! What do you think of Terry’s turn at hand modelling?
