The Boosh!

It was the lovely Natasha from 18 AND EAST's birthday last week and to celebrate we took ourselves off to The Princess Alice in Brick Lane - whislt dressed in clothes inspired by one of our favourite tv shows of all time - The Mighty Boosh! Just cos we can.

Cresty in the bingo hall,
running like a china horse.
Mmn p-ta masala,
Mmn p-ta masala.
Kentish town, Kentish town, yeah!
Kentish town, Kentish town, no!

Point and flex...

Tutus are everywhere right now.. everywhere! Darren Aronofsky's psycho ballet thriller “Black Swan” is hitting the UK soon and promises to be on of the a beautifully stylish film. Set to the backdrop of New York, the film focuses on the relationship between a veteran prima ballerina (Natalie Portman) and a younger rival (Mila Kunis.) The two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, which judging from the trailer.. doesn't end well.
Kayne has also gone Tutu crazy in his beautiful new video - "Runway" Dig out your ballet pumps and add some netting to your skirts... ballet chic is making a comeback.

Leather Love....

We are lusting after leather right now, esp leather skirts. This is partly because they are damn sexy, but also warm (it's freezing!!) We are also loving leggings with leather knee patches - perfect for when you are when you are riding on the back of your boyfriend's motorbike....

Lacroix Daahhling...

Ab Fab is back!  (Or at least it will be next year..) Crack open the bolly and dust of your Lacroix as Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are reprising their roles as fashion's favourites Patsy and Eddie. Prepare yourselves for more foul mouthed, chain smoking fashion related debauchery......

Brit Hot...

Unless you have been hibernating in a cave for the past couple of weeks, you will have be aware of a Harry Potter fever sweeping the world. (We literally cannot WAIT!) Our fave Brit chick Emma Watson has looked nothing short of stunning and stylish with her new pixie crop, using the press junkets and premiers as her own personal catwalk. Love, love love her. A young Mia Farrow we thinks....

Sweeties Japan style...

We have just got back from a trip to Hong Kong and bought back some Japanese sweeties.... Collon doesn't sound too appetising to us though....

Fashion on FIlm

 We are very excited here at 18 AND EAST as the 3rd Annual Fashion in Festival is coming to London again in December.

This year's theme is "Birds of Paradise" which will provide an intoxicating exploration of costume as a form of cinematic spectacle throughout European and American cinema. Spread across 4 venues: The BFI, The Tate Modern, The Barbican and The Horse Hospital it spans across 2 weeks of programming promising it a feast for the eyes!
 We shall def be going down there for some inspiration - and for the sequins.


Cheryl's Disney hair

So the X Factor yet again has thrown out another disasterous look for Cheryl.... whilst we love her Editions by Georges Chakra 2010 gown, we think she needs to sack her hair stylist pronto before Minnie Mouse sues her for all she's worth...

Danni on the other hand looked lovely as always in a pale blue leopard-print Emilia Wickstead jersey dress and Christian Louboutin pumps. She classy.
