Major girl crush Marion Cotillard looking flawless on the cover of the July/August WSJ Magazine. She's one of the top actresses today, a stunner born in the wrong era who epitomises classic French beauty.

Okay so this post is super-heartbreaking to write... one of the most iconic and original fashion labels the world has ever seen, Yves Saint Laurent, is being renamed Saint Laurent Paris - complete with a change of its signature initials. Yes, YSL is no more and SLP is rising up. Personally, I think this is outrageous, I am even considering making some form of petition. I mean, really Hedi Slimane? Rebranding YSL and repackaging it into SLP? Are you freaking kidding me? I was really hoping this was some sort of sick April Fool's joke, only that's it's not April... But I'm kind of confused about this whole thing apparently they're still sticking with the YSL logo (hooray!)???

"The brand will “use the same fonts, and similar nomenclature, from that era”, though the Yves Saint Laurent name will be used for “institutional purposes”. The elegant Cassandre logo will continue to appear on apparel, accessories, and cosmetics." -

YSL forever and always.

New series of posts coming up with some lesser-known model crushes of mine. The first of these posts focusses on the Brazilian beauty, Tayane Leão Melo. Girlfriend is absolutely stunning, no doubt about that. She reminds me of a mix between Leigh Lezark, Natasha Poly and Adriana Lima. If I included every single beautiful shot of her in this post, it would be endless... it was so hard to narrow it down! So so so flawless, the epitome of a Brazilian goddess.

YES! PLEASE! Nothing like some amazing florals, leopards and pastels to brighten up a day of gloomy Sydney weather! Falling so hard for this collection, it's got a mix of styles for everyone really. The collection is really sports luxe meets flirty and girly with a bit of menswear-inspired tailoring and some animal print thrown into the pile. And surprisingly, they work so well together, I don't know how Stella McCartney does it but this collection is genius. Still white on white looks are going strong and I need some some white lace in my life right now - that dress is stunnnnnnnnning. Oh and did I mention that I'm freaking done for this semester?! Can I get a HALLELUJAH? Expect some major blogging time to be had over the next few weeks, loves!

True to form, Dion Lee's latest collection, Lunar Tides, is full of futuristic, flattering, fashion-forward styles that focus on beautiful tailored pieces and amazing structural elements of clothing. The lookbook, featuring one of my favourites Krystal Glynn as well as the stellar Jess Gold, is wonderfully shot against a black and white minimalist backdrop. So proud to be an Australian right now and Dion is proving to be one of the next big things on an international scale, securing a place on the homepage with this very collection!!! Insanity! I'm really feeling the colour palette as well with a stunning mix of greys, blacks, greens, blues, metallics and bold highlighter colours - a really modern twist on classic-style tees and skirts as well as interesting shapes and beautiful attention to detail. Shame we missed out on a Dion Lee show at MBFWA this year, but seeing how wonderful this collection is I really don't mind. Such a winner!

The most beautiful lavender colour that I think is going to be HUGE this upcoming season.

Can't get over the beauty of the spinal/skeletal detailing on the jacket on the left, super lust-worthy.

Beautiful textures and the shapes on the turquoise dress on the right are flawless.

Perfect structural elements and tailoring and just the right amount of sheer.

Monochrome madness ft. the Christina Centenera MBFWA top on the right.

The dress on the left is such a beauty, sheer + black heaven and the top half of it is just perfection.

This season's take on metallics.

Neon green + grey marle is just a classic.

Loving the interesting textures from both looks and that bomber jacket has the perfect amount of slouch.
