Sienna Miller combines her two great loves — acting and fashion, for the latest campaign promoting her and sister Savannah's clothing line Twenty8Twelve. Starring in a film opposite Swedish model Sara Blomqvist, the Autumn/Winter 2010-11 collection is showcased in a '20s style grainy video shot inside Hilles, the Gloucestershire house where the late Isabella Blow lived and committed suicide. Fashion photographer Angelo Pennetta directed the film and both Sienna and Sara model key pieces from the Winter range including jersey maxi's and rich velvet dresses. Savannah explains to British Vogue that using video was a necessary medium for this latest collection: "We felt moving image could capture the essence of the message with more clarity. We feel it makes the story come alive and it was amazing to work with Angelo."

Abbey Lee has certainly been a busy little bee lately. Between flying home to be one of the top models replacing Miranda Kerr for David Jones, to shooting a short film with Karl Lagerfeld, to her countless Fall campaigns, she also squeezed in a Vogue Italia shoot for their August issue. Captured in black and white by Mario Sorrenti, Abbey works her magic in retro-inspired, classic pieces by D&G, Balenciaga, Gucci and more. Click through to see the gorgeous Abbey in action (and be warned, as with most Abbey shoots there's quite a few NSFW piccies in here).
I'm developing a may-jah girl crush on British stylista Louise Roe. It all started with her recent cameos on The City and has now grown into full-on cyber stalking. She has a new reality show in the US called Plain Jane where she transforms the lives — and wardrobes — of unassuming contestants which clearly displays her fashion know-how and unpretentious personality. Here she is at an event in New York wearing a bronzalicious ensemble which is further sealing the deal on her stylista status. She's combined striking gold accessories with her bronze H&M mini-dress and I'm loving the look stupid. I'm particularly impressed with the black and gold peep-toe booties (I want!). Are you crushing on Louise's look, too?
Lara Bingle will be in good company thanks to her new US-based modelling agency, Elite Model Management. The agency boasts famous clients such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Coco Rocha, Emma Balfour and Riley Keough. Noice. It's been reported that Lara had to rework her portfolio to suit the new, errr, elite agency, having been spotted posing for photoshoots around New York and West Hollywood. Locally Lara will continue to front Speedo campaigns, going head to head with rival swimwear beauties Jessica Hart (Seafolly) and Cheyenne Tozzi (Mambo). Wonder if Alessandra will take Lara under her Victoria's Secret angel wing, hmmmm?
Yowza, I'm kind of regretting that second piece of banana bread right now. Victoria's Secret hotties Chanel Iman, Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel launched the new Incredible Bra at the VS SoHo store yesterday, flaunting the bra's ultra comfy "seamless and self adjusting straps." The bra comes in a variety of different colours and styles, and also boasts cushioned underwire, a wider band and flat closure. Wanna know more about this revolutionary piece of lingerie? Well why not here it from the girls themselves, who happily sing its praises in this behind-the-scenes video from the new ad campaign. Sigh.
The new cover stars of i-D's 30th birthday issue have been unveiled this week, offering you a black and white mix of A-list models and pop stars. There are rumours that the three separate covers came about due to some annoyance from Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell not wanting to play second fiddle to Lady Gaga. Hmmm. Kate has a cropped 'do for the cover, which reminds me of her younger years. As the publication celebrates this milestone birthday, it also announced changes in the editorial line up. Out of these three Autumn covers, which do you think is the most fab?
When Lubov Azria — creative director of BCBG and wife of founder Max Azria — dishes fashion advice, we're all ears. That's because not only does the Ukranian beauty have a fashion degree from FIDM, but she's been working at the BCBG Max Azria Group since 1991 (she married Max in 1992). And her job isn't cruisy — she's in charge of the company's design team and oversees marketing and merchandising for BCBG's over 20 labels, like Herve Leger and Max Azria. In the latest BCBG Max Azria newsletter, Lubov dishes Fall dressing advice, more specifically about textures and layering. Her main tip? "Fashion should be fun, so go play."
