Update your hair and make-up for a whole new look. Take your pick from urban grunge and old-school glamour
Considering the selling points of Australia include its preponderance of sunshine and sandy shores, not to mention the strong economy and high quality of life, it’s little wonder that our friends down under are so skilled at creating covetable swimwear.
Take summer-holiday packing first-class with luxurious, bold and bright transitional pieces, says Rebecca Gonsalves

Yesterday was a big day for Karl Lagerfeld. Not only did he present his spring 2013 collection for Chanel, he also announced the opening of a new own-line boutique in Paris next February.
Her legendary style was the antithesis of the stereotypical Italian look. For Anna Piaggi, sartorial paradise was not to be found in exquisite understatement, unadulterated luxury or the clashing of a few Florentine patterns.

The game of designer musical chairs that is affecting the fashion industry gathered momentum last week when it was announced that Hannah MacGibbon had parted company with the French fashion house Chloé.
Wedding dresses are doing great business in Fashionland. All eyes may be on Kates Middleton (will she really wear McQueen?) and Moss (will she stand by Galliano?) but pop-retiree-turned-vintage-boutique-owner Lily Allen has stolen a measure of their thunder by revealing that she will be heading down the aisle in a frock from Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld after being spotted at the label's Paris studios.

Top marks to English National Ballet for cashing in on the Black Swan buzz with a rushed-out addition to their Black & White show at the London Coliseum next month. Alongside works by Wayne Eagling and Suite en Blanc, the programme will now feature the dazzling black swan pas de deux from Swan Lake which gave Natalie Portman's ballerina so much trouble in the film (and not just because of its 32 fouettés).
