Two Vogue Favourites Become Burberry Girls for Burberry spring/summer 2014 campaign

MALAIKA FIRTH and Jean Campbell are two of the new faces in Burberry's spring/summer 2014 campaign, epitomising next season's "distinctly English mood", Christopher Bailey said. The Brit-based twosome appear alongside young British talent from the worlds of music and film, including Jamie Campbell Bower, Leo Dobson, Matilda Lowther, Neelam Johal and Callum Ball.



Campbell - the daughter of former Vogue  fashion editor Isabella Cawdor and her husband, Colin -appeared in her first ever editorial, in the October issue of British Vogue, captured by Bruce Weber. Firth, meanwhile, has had a stellar year - gracing the Prada campaign, the cover of a Vogue supplement and theVictoria's Secret catwalk in a matter of months.
The youthful British cast helps highlight the Scottish-woven cashmeres and sheer English laces used in the collection, entitled English Rose, and - Bailey says - encapsulate the "gentle, effortless, romantic quality" of the season. 

Rihanna Is The Face Of Balmain’s Spring 2014 Campaign

RIHANNA is the new face of Balmain. Described as an "icon" by the label's creative director, Olivier Rousteing, the singer stars in the forthcoming spring/summer 2014 campaign - due to appear in magazines from January.
"In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world," said Rousteing. "When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete."
The adverts were shot in New York by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, with styling by Mel Ottenberg - Rihanna's personal stylist. The star has previously fronted campaigns for Armani Jeans.

Rick Owens had his Crazy spring/summer 2014 collection presentation on Paris Fashion Week

Rick Owens spring rtw 2014 paris fashion weekRick Owens had his spring/summer 2014 collection presentation on Paris Fashion Week. Everything would’ve been great and same as every other fashion show if there wasn’t for Rick Owens’ crazy creativeness. His fashion show was some kind of a performance, not just a simple runway.
It was a real contradiction to all the other shows with skinny models.
Owens’ models were curved, plus-size models and were of lighter, as well as of darker skin color.
Somehow, it represented a statement against all the debates about black and white models, and fat and skinny models.
But, there were a lot of negative thoughts on this brave move of Owens. What do you think?

Tv presenter Eku Edewor in an interview with Punch declared Nigerian men are actually romantic



Tv presenter Eku Edewor in an interview with Punch declared Nigerian men are actually romantic and for those who are not, she has some tips for you
The Nigerian men I have dated have been very romantic; I guess it depends on the type of man one attracts and also what one deems romantic. Know whom you’re with, some guys don’t want to say cheesy things and look into your eyes but they will always make sure your happiness comes first. Not everything has to be a large “romantic” gesture. Romance has to do with being selfless. Simple things like, choosing to stay with your girlfriend all weekend watching movies instead of being at the clubs all weekend with the boys is romantic; others are sending flowers for no reason at all, surprise dinners, heartfelt messages. If your partner really knows you and loves you, he’ll find ways to be romantic and find ways to make you happy. I actually find Nigerian guys far more active and good when it comes to making large romantic statements. A tip to guys, flowers always makes women happy, even if they say they don’t love flowers. They probably do and if sending chocolates with cards is what your lady wants, it really won’t hurt or take much time."

The Lyrics
                                     MAKE .A. MOVE
                                           By Ivie Okujaye

Verse 1
In my head I am dying, don’t tell me I'm not trying
He looked at my broken soul and kept on laughing
The air’s gone my lungs feel like they are drowning
I did my best but you left me-e hanging
When you left my whole world came down crashing
Tryna stay strong but within I'm crying
Tryna stay safe from the evil that's hunting me-

Chorus
-I know I will Make a Move
I will fight for you, I will see you through
I will Make a Move, I will fight for you
I will see you through
I will make, make, make, Make a Move!

Verse 2
Behind closed doors no one ever knows
What he puts you through
Staring at the ceiling night after night
And the one who was put on this earth to protect you
Turns a blind eye to what happens
All because she doesn't wanna be alone
All because she doesn't wanna be without a man
So she sleeps at night with her ears shut tight
So she doesn't have to hear her baby girl
Screaming, “Mama Please help me-”
