The legendary Michael Jackson (1958 - 2009) - what can I say. I'm very sad by the news. The man who had me trying to do the moonwalk and the gravity defying lean (from the smooth criminal video) the summer of 1988 at the tender age of 7.
The man who had me mesmerized by his videos that were like mini movies every time I watched. His life has been cut short in such unfortunate circumstances but MJ is and always will be my first music crush. So I couldn't let the news pass without paying tribute.
Presenting my all-time favourite MJ videos that were such a huge part of my childhood (especially summer holidays). Mr. Jackson, I salute you!
No.1 - Smooth Criminal
No.2 - Dirty Diana

Take a look at this: The Harry Potter star Emma Watson has gone from geek chic to smoldering high fashion in Burberry. I learnt in April that she'd be stepping out as new face of their AW/09 campaign and after much anticipation, here are the preview photos. I have to say, I'm quite impressed, she seems to have made the transition from actress to model effortlessly.
I was reading the interview with Creative director Christopher Bailey in WWD and he explained, “I wanted the images to represent both the rich history and the modernity of the Burberry brand, while at the same time reflecting a quiet beauty, timelessness and strength that is particularly significant today.” I think he's cracked it.
Whilst browsing online today I found these two arty vest tops on sale at Dorothy Perkins. Both are a steal at just £11.20 each. I love graphic design and all things creative, so these prints are right up my street. Don't you think that they would look great with faded skinny jeans and some colourful Nikes? Or if you're really daring, the top can be worn as a cool mini and fluoro high heels? Well, I'm not sure I'd be brave enough for the later, but I'm loving the idea of wearing a statement top with simple denim and bright kicks. Sure feels like Summer.
