Elle-o, is it me you’re looking for?

Elle-o, is it me you’re looking for?

Any opportunity to reference one of my favourite 'film narrative' music videos is good, right?  On a note that's NOT related to Lionel Richie, this is just a wee note to say that I've popped up in Elle UK again in the new September issue.  Don't meant to sound like a sap, but I kind of love working with them and I'm obviously fairly chuffed that my words get to go elsewhere in formats outside of dear old Typepad.  


Elle Edits (that's the front section) salutes individuals.  Cue an interview with Louise Gray (duh…) and a piece by me about why it was so important to find pale blue slips in Camden and dress like Claudia Kishi from the Babysitter's Club when I was a teenager and why that all matters now… 


I also get to play A/W 11-12 fantasy paper doll outfit with a jumper by Carven, hat by Nasir Mazhar for Meadham Kirchhoff, trousers by Danielle Scutt and shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood for Meadham Kirchhoff.  Figures that a lot of Meadham Kirchhoff would come into the outfit equation… 


The rest of the issue includes a very indepth interview with J.W. Anderson, a fairly reassuring 'I'm-at-peace-with-myself' type of interview with Kirsten Dunst, who here is wearing a particularly lovely sheer polka dot dress by Stella McCartney… 


…and as you would expect in a September issue, a ton of STUFF (market pages, eds) that make you get all excited about the new season.  One thing that stood out was this feature where the Elle staff get to trial new season pieces.  One lucky intern got to wear a superb head-to-toe Jil Sander floral ensemble… that's motivation enough to send in a decent covering letter and a CV, no?

    I always see you popping up in magazines, congratulations! So good to get your writing in so many places, and writing for Elle? This has surely got to be one thing ticked of the list. I am currently in the process of writing my 900 words for the competition featured in the issue. I think its my new thing I’m thouroughly enjoying lately…always worth the try.

    Hey congratulations on getting your writing in Elle, and the September issue too! I love blogging, but I get such a kick out of seeing my words properly typeset and my name in printed ink! I cancelled my Elle subscription last month to save money, but I wish I’d waited one month more…

    Wow it’s so cool for you to be featured in this popular magazine and your outfit is fab! I also love Stella Mcartney’s translucent outfits this spring summer as you can spot on Kate Moss’s wedding (flower girls dresses), spoty is also very cute!

    I bought this issue yesterday to read on the train. It was a nice surprise to see you looking back at me from the pages. I really enjoyed the whole ‘individuality’ section. I think fashion magazines can often seem to tell women exactly what they should and shouldn’t wear, so it was nice to see Elle encouraging people to throw out the rulebook once in a while.
