I can remember back in the day when Chanel would grace the covers of Teen Vogue, and how whenever she was featured in the pages of the magazines, I’d be so happy for her and feel as though I was somehow living vicariously through her. I loved that we looked a little similar and how close in age we were – it almost felt like we were best friends.
Over the years I’ve watched her career blossom and though I’m no longer living vicariously through her, I’m still always just as happy for her whenever I see her do something new.
Chanel covers the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and as always, she looks fab. For me especially, I think it’s such a big deal she’s not only featured in BUT covers a middle-eastern magazine, whose culture favours those with white skin. So to see Chanel (who is also part Korean), a black model on the cover of such a magazine in such a region, brings me great pride and a little tear to my eye.
No I know I must say this a lot, but Chanel really is one of my really good friends in my head.
ps. A bit of shameless self-promotion: don’t forget to check out my new beauty and hair blog.

My best friend in my head aka Taylor Swift (isn’t she every girl’s best friend in their head though?) features on the November issue of GQ magazine, and girl is getting it! (Okay so that sounded a lot a better in my head lol). I don’t really talk about Tay Tay as much as I talk about some of my other celeb friends, but I’ve been a massive fan of hers since Red – OMG THAT ALBUM WAS EVERYTHING AND IT SERIOUSLY CHANGED MY LIFE – and even though I haven’t with everything she’s done, I always love to see her doing well and achieving her dreams.
She truly is such an inspiration and I love her more and more every day. Not a bad way to end the week. Happy Friday.

Ms Henson is Allure magazine’s July cover girl, and she is totally rocking it!
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of months, you won’t know that Taraji is one of the leads on my favourite show Empire. She plays Cookie Lyon, the matriarch (I don’t like the term but now is neither the time nor place to go into details about it) who has just been released from serving seventeen years in prison. For more details on the show you had better watch it and find out for yourself.
I’ve always found her striking and mesmerising, but this cover is just S T U N N I N G. I can’t wait for Empire to come back in September.
Kind of old news but these pictures were too beautiful to not share. There’s really no denying that Olivia is a worldwide style icon, so it’s great to see her covering the latest issue of Elle Vietnam.
As always Ms Palermo is looking fab and like the girl you wish was your bestest friend. While I love all the shots, the cover is definitely my favourite of them all.
I know that the day I meet Olivia Palermo in real life, I will be so gobsmacked. I just hope she likes me lol.

Omg could Olivia and Johannes get any cuter?
My favourite couple in the whole entire world cover the February edition of Flare magazine, where they pose for a series of shots and talk about when they first met.
So cute and so beautiful.
Every time I read or see anything regarding Olivia Palermo, I’m instantly reminded of my desperate desire to be her best friend. She’s incredibly down to earth, hands down one of THE most stylish women in the world, and she just seems like she’d be a really cool girl to hang out with.
In her interview with Elle Australia, Olivia talks about staying grounded and appreciative of life, as well as the fact that her assistant is in college and that her studies come before helping out Ms Palermo, which I thought was pretty cute and totally understanding on Olivia’s part. Anyway, I’ll leave these stunning pictures to say the rest.
Truly such a great inspiration.
