Agenda: Little Nikki; Ugg ear-muffs-cum-headphones; Domingo Milella; Jo Malone crackers; Claire Danes crying
Sunday 18 November 2012
Face to watch: Little Nikki
No, not the terrible Adam Sandler film, but 16-year-old Brit Nikki Shortland. Her debut single "Intro Intro" (out on 5 December) features Azealia-esque attitude, grime synths and even a rave siren. Watch your back, Rihanna.
Fashion: Go to work on an Ugg

Stay warm, look cool – and do it all to the soundtrack of your choosing. £75, Ugg, my-wardrobe.co.uk
