Rosie Huntington-Whiteley For Harper's Bazaar

A hugely impressive shoot by Rosie for Harper's Bazaar September issue really caught my eye. Above in my favourite designers D&G for a sweet look and below in what has to be my favourite Dior look since Raf Simons took the helm. A perfect blend of modern feminism without being too minimal. A seriously influential look.
Rosie's Marks & Spencer collaboration is a credit to her for the effort she puts into the collections.
 A strong performance in Mad Max Fury Road should hopefully lead to similar roles and not more Transformers type parts. 
This is the best I have seen McQueen look in ages. A fairytale look but not OTT.
These Max Mara coats are well on the way to iconic status. The pink is a fresh colour too compared to the normal beige.
Nice styling with Amy Adams Fall 2015 campaign too.
Saint Laurent wows with this wool jacket and tulle dress look.

More Rosie
Quite a fashion moment in Paris this year.
Kate Moss vibes here
I really like this look. Imposing in a good way.
A class look. Love how the material sits and it's fit.
Quite striking for Balmain.
Clueless vibes!
Simple yet chic.
A stunning maxi dress.
Super slouchy

Also in that September issue is Katy Perry styled as Elizabeth Taylor. Maybe acting is worth a go KP.

Allie X

It's been interesting watching the career of Foxes recently. She seemed to struggle to follow up smash hit 'Youth' with a similar vibe and quality. I found her image and make-up in the song 'Let It Go For Tonight' to be a cliche and not reflective of her personality. 

Her recent fashion collaboration with H&M was good though and new tune 'Body Talk' is decent. Anyway to get to the point Canadian singer Allie X reminds me of Foxes!

An atmospheric voice and evocative lyrics are reflected in 'Catch'.

"My hands are tied behind my back.
I'm paralysed, my heart attacks.
It seemed to me you were the one.
Turns out you shot me up for fun."

"Thought you got away with murder.
Left me at a loss for the words.
Just wait until I catch my breath.
Wait until I catch my breath".
Love hurts!
Heartbreak is a common theme reflected in 'Tumor'.
"When this is over, I'll need a surgery
Cause you were a tumor
You'll leave a hole inside of me
It’s high risk, not hopeless, I'm conscious
When this is over, when this is over
I'll still be letting it grow".

Damn those cheats causing huge NHS waiting lists for tumor removals!

Loving the lace and the red lipstick.

Like Quasimodo she believes in 'Sanctuary'. Another good tune.

Synth-pop can be excellent when done like this and by artists such as Chvrches.

Make a spectacle of yourself.
What's causing the freaky shadow? Godzilla or another pointless re-make?
I want some fed up glasses too.
These are from the wistful/bored range. 
Alas the excruciating wait for the ASOS parcels.

Grab a kwl tee on Allie's current US tour.
