Dakota's all grown up!

For some reason, I've always had a soft spot for Dakota Fanning ever since I saw her in that Friends episode; she's just always seemed extremely mature and intelligent for her age. However, despite the many years that have passed since Friends / War of the Worlds, I still seemed to believe she was no more than about 10 years-old until I saw this month's issue of Italian Vogue. Now 16 years-old, this girl seems to be the new Emma Watson  -  from child star to total chic:

Don't you just love those bold eyebrows and that mermaid plait?

RIP Alexander McQueen.

Yesterday, the news broke of the tragic death of Alexander McQueen. Having won the British Designer of the Year Award four times in addition to being awarded a CBE, McQueen had already accomplished so much in his life; however, at only 40 years-old, he still had so much more to achieve. The way he revolutionised fashion  -  from low-slung jeans to alien shoes  -  will never be forgotten. Moreover, the spectacular theatrical elements of McQueen's shows in addition to his penchant for the animal kingdom in all its violent beauty will remain imprinted into the hearts of fashionistas everywhere.

RIP Lee; you were truly amazing.
