Alexa Chung has spoken candidly on her biggest career desire - she wants to launch her own label and design clothes. However, she admits it is quite a complicated process and one that takes a lot of financing. She explains that it’s a big dream for her:
”All I want to do is design clothes. But you need loads of money to set up a label. It’s quite complicated and I have no f***ing idea how you do it. But that’s pretty much all I want.”
”Usually I can see the future. I’ve got quite a good sense of what is about to happen. I see it happening and I make it happen. I can’t at the moment…”
”I just designed a really good bra in my head. Black see-through triangles, with a nose over your nipples and two cat faces.”

MAC is creating a beauty collection inspired byAngelina Jolie's villainous new character - the evil Maleficent in the upcoming Disney film of the same name. The limited-edition collection will include face, eye, lip and nail products, according to WWD.
On the film’s set, make-up artist Toni G was responsible for Jolie’s sinister look, with special effects make-up by Rick Baker - a previous MAC collaborator.
These won’t be MAC’s first Disney beauty products though - in 2010, the brand launched its Venomous Villains make-up collection, inspired by Cruella De Vil, Snow White’s Evil Queen and Maleficent herself. If the dark lips, pearly nail polishes and cleverly-illustrated packaging used then are anything to go by, then the upcoming collection is sure to be the best way to do Disney for grown-ups.
MAC cannot confirm that the collection will be sold in Britain at this stage, but Maleficent will be released in May 2014. See a preview here.
”We love each other. We’re a family. We’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives. There’s no question that for the sake of our son and everything else, we’re going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn.”
”It’s just all very childish, and I cannot believe we’re still having these debates over and over again. I understand if people are concerned for my health, but equally, I know I’m fine. It gets to a point where it goes beyond concern into bullying, and it’s turned into a platform for people to vent who are not happy with themselves. I find that every few years it’s a different girl that has to deal with it. I think before me it was Keira Knightley who was having a shit time. Or before her it was Victoria Beckham. I think it’s all come down to women just being happy with themselves and each other. It’s cheesy, but people should appreciate all shapes and sizes and love themselves and each other. Can’t we all just be cool, guys?”
"I never really feel that single. There’s always, like, something going on. I’ve stopped thinkingabout it to be honest. I’ve decided that I’m going to accept it and tell myself that I’m good. It’s quite fun though, isn’t it? Anything can happen at anytime.”
Those lucky enough to be invited to the recent Isabel Marant for H&M launch partywhich was held in Paris, shared snaps of the clothes, shoes and accessories which were laid out on the night for the excited attendees to get a closer look. Officially hitting stores on November 14th (prepare for an overnight wait if you want to be first in line), the designs take heavy inspiration from Marant’s biggest hits from past seasons: embroidered trophy jackets, multi-coloured knit sweaters, suede fringe ankle boots and some boyish oversized coats.

JEREMY SCOTTis the new creative director ofMoschino SpA, it was announced this evening. The American designer will present his first collection for the 30-year-old Italian house during Milan Fashion Week in February next year.
"This appointment respects the DNA of the brand as Jeremy Scott represents not only an eclectic and contemporary communicator but most of all a designer capable of re-interpreting the identity and the essence of Moschino," a spokeswoman for the company told us.
The appointment marks the end of Rossella Jardini’s long tenure at the house of Moschino - which she has led since the death of its founder, Franco Moschino, in 1994.
"Moschino thanks Rossella Jardini for her enormous contribution in keeping the spirit of Moschino alive and at the forefront of fashion from 1994 to the present day," continued tonight’s statement. "Her creativity and tenacity drove the brand on and Rossella Jardini will always remain a crucial part of our history."
Famous for his own attention-demanding, irreverent attitude to fashion, 39-year-old LA-based Scott will continue to head up his own label - which he launched in 1997 - as he takes on this new role.
