Now owned by US confectionary company Kraft, Cadbury still insisted that they would not pull the advert despite Campbells possible law suit.  The supermodel’s mother Valerie Morris also made a statement explaining that “I’m deeply upset by this racist advert. Do these people think they can insult black people and we just take it? This is the 21st century, not the 1950s. Shame on Cadbury”

Other parties have begun to get involved including the campaign group “operation black vote” agreeing with the Campbells protesting that racism can begin in the playground with children calling black children chocolate bar due to the advert.

Singer now turned designer Lily Allen is pleased to announce the lunch of her new fashion line today. Recently opening a vintage store in London’s Covent Garden called Lucy In Disguise as well as having a fly on the wall reality show document it all. The new line is about to be open for sale to the public in coming days of June.

 

Continuing with the theme of her store the new fashion haul includes an 18 items of retro and chic pieces from cute dresses to all-in-ones play suits. The great thing about the line is that the range is affordable with pieces starting from £140.00 and perfectly named “Treasure chest” Amazing a clear hidden secret!!

 

Back in 2007 Lily collaborated with New Look and since then she has had the fashion fever, since then she has worked with Chanel and now her sister Sarah Owens.

She told Vogue:After we’d launched the shop, I think we both felt that we wanted to create vintage styles with more contemporary, clean lines. ‘Sometimes with vintage clothes the femininity can get lost – the market didn’t feel quite perfect, so that’s what we’ve worked on. I’ve always been into vintage – before I became a pop star it was all I ever wore.’

 

She has been working mega hard on the beautiful collection and has already ready to reveal her second, third and begin her fourth collection. ‘This line is all about Lucy in Disguise the character – it’s very eclectic. The next few collections become more concentrated and more based on set themes with clear hero pieces. ‘Each piece really stands on its own.’

 

Lily will be getting married in the next week to Sam Cooper (32) in a dress designed by Chanel- she recently celebrated her hen party in London Claridge’s hotel. The wedding will be held in St James the Great Church in Cranham, Gloucestershire.

Labelux expands its portfolio which currently includes luxury retailer Bally, whilst this expansion aims to increase its presence in the Asian market.

“Labelux is really complementary to Jimmy Choo with its focus on luxury fashion, accessories and jewellery,” ceo Joshua Schulman Jimmy Choo told WWD. “We look forward to partnering with them on our growth plans.”

Khloe Kardashian stepped out of her store Dash boutique in Calabassas California yesterday- online sites have gone mad with the images and not for a particularly good reason.

Red jeans Khloe kardashian

She wore an almost illuminus bright pair of red skinny jeans coupled with an open top blue shirt and and a pair of striking leopard print heels- the outfit has been noted as one of her fashion mistakes.

Leaving Dash

The one item that did match was her bright red lipstick which we will admit looked fab.

However there appeared to be more wrong than right with the tightness of the jeans and the randomness of the shoes and belt.

The outfit has potential to look nice, if she had gone for a plain pair of shoes and shirt since the jeans are so prominent she should have used them as the feature of her outfit instead of featuring her bra leopard print shoes and belt.

She does fill out the jeans very well with her superb curvy figure she needs to find the right outfit so as to not over provoke the curves-

As they say “Sharp Corners can be dangerous!”

Curves that could kill!

Red Jeans can be really cute if worn with something more subtle on top, a simple tank or a cute blouse usually does the trick.

A few hours ago London’s power couple David and Victoria Beckham have their eyes set on a new domain of further increasing their fortune which is currently estimated at £165m with David Beckham’s latest venture in the Fashion world with the creation of his own line.

 

 

Following in his fashionista wife footstep his range will include a bodywear line and fragrence uniquely named Homme by David Beckham set to be released at some point this year.

News broke on the social media website Twitter when Victoria tweeted ‘David announced today he is launching his own bodywear range!!! x’

The inspiration had come from their colaboration with Armani (and his dear wife) back in 2007, David was the face of the very sucessful and popular Armani underware ad which was a global campaign, released on thousands of billboards and magazine spreads around the world which clearly boosted the Beckhams net worth as well as Armani with estimated profits doubling. Clothing is clearly a money maker for the Beckhams earning £20 million from the industry so far this year- and that amount is only going to get bigger.

 

Armani Ad

 

 

He plans to incorporate a sport based logo designed by fashion designer Stella McCartney’s husband Alashair Willis and to be the face of the brand.  He professed: ‘It proved to me that there is a real market for good-looking, well-made men’s bodywear.’ As he get older he releases his days are numbered as a sports man and with a new baby girl on the way in June, he needs to diversify to ensure his future stability in the public eye- therefore his drive to become an entrepreneur is powerful.

He admits: ‘I’m getting older now and I don’t have many years left. This is my last contract year, but who knows what will happen.’

A lot of work has already been placed into the creation of his brand as he openly suggests his team are working on fabrics and products. His three boys have also been involved in the process and we can only imagine the couples next range may be kids wear especially when Victoria gets to put the girls in a variety of coutour outfits.

There is no launch date set for the clothing range but the scent will be released in September.

We will keep you posted!
