Sunday 04 November 2012
Friends of the band
'Tis the season when all you want to wear is a big, snuggly jumper, fashion be damned. Luckily, landing in Topshop this week is this neon chevron-stripe knit, which manages to combine cosy with cool and homespun with hip. It's everything you need as the weather turns decidedly Arctic and you're looking to layer up. Wear it slightly oversized with skinny jeans and big stompy boots for the ultimate in off-duty model chic. £38, topshop.com
Face to watch: Luke Pasqualino
Hoping to follow fellow Skins alumnus Nick Hoult to the big screen, Pasqualino gets his cinematic break this week in teen werewolf comedy Love Bite, while next year he'll be alongside Tilda Swinton and John Hurt in sci-fi epic Snowpiercer

1. Slept 4 hours! Bloody annoying! Jet slag!
2. I think today is the first time I haven't worn jeans in like a year. I feel so free. And breezy.
3. Sending every ounce of my love to New York.
4. Just swallowed a really sharp bit of crisp. Pride comes before a fall. *Dies slowly, sliced from inside by rogue Cheese n Onion fragment*
