Yay we will finally find out who wins New Zealand's Next Top Model tomorrow night. My personal pick is Danielle. The judges all love her and she's definitely been a favourite from the get go.

Hooray this is my 100th post!

Federation for CanTeen

I just love my Federation Oui Yes! bandanna. Very cool! On a serious note there is an estimated 10-12,000 young people living with cancer in New Zealand and CanTeen is an organisation that supports them. Please purchase a bandanna, they're only $4 each and there are also more designs if the Federation one doesn't tickle your fancy.

Jessica Clarke back in Palmy

Jessica Clarke has been spotted back in her (and my) hometown of Palmerston North. Here she is with Colin Mathura-Jeffree in the Plaza about a week and a half ago. She is such an amazing model and she's just finished her rounds of shows at the recent fashion weeks and is back in Palmy to finish off her schooling. She is doing Palmerston North and New Zealand so proud. The picture below is her working it for the D&G Spring 2011 show.

Who Wore It Better? Chloe vs Alex

Chloe Sevigny wore this leopard Lanvin print mini dress back in September which she paired with Christian Louboutin 'Madame Butterfly' booties. This week Alex Curran not only wore the same dress but the same shoes. Chloe rocked this outfit first and she wore it better. Alex gets no points for originality. Who do you think wore it better?

Kristen Stewart + Valentino

Love her or hate her in Twilight but there is no denying that she looks smoking hot in Valentino. She wore this yesterday to the premiere of her new drama Welcome to the Riley's.

Colin & I

I got to meet the lovely Colin Mathura-Jeffree (in my opinion the best judge on New Zealand's Next Top Model) at The Plaza last thursday. He was there to promote The Plaza's Most Fashionable Night Out. I think I might be one of his biggest stalkers because I also got to meet him earlier on in the year. It was a great night out as there were free drinks and food everywhere, plus awesome shopping deals.

Who Wore It Better? Alexa vs Blake

I love seeing celebrities wearing the same outfit and here we see Alexa Chung and Blake Lively both wearing Chanel. As usual Alexa always adds a boyish touch to her outfits; here with black loafers. I am also a fan of Blake Lively and she has gone with the more feminine touch with neutral heels and a simple bracelet. Who wore it better? Well it is a tough call because they have both worn the dress with there own sense of style but I have to give it to Alexa because I love her mix of high and low and her boyish touch. I am an Alexa fan so I am a bit biased. Who do you think wore it better?

The Garden of Chanel

Chanel has just shown their SS 2011 collection for Paris Fashion Week. As always it was a huge spectacle which had a garden for the runway and a magnificent fountain as the centerpiece. Clemence Poesy and Keira Knightley were enjoying the show with front row seats. The clothes were incredibly colourful and I loved all the feathers and accessories. I am especially in love with the cute little gold bag that looks like it could only hold a cellphone.

Floral Dream

Katie Holmes looks amazing in this floral Louis Vuitton dress at Variety magazine's 2nd Annual Power Of Women Luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. I know floral is usually reserved for the warmer seasons but I don't see why you can't in the cooler seasons as Katie has shown here. She's made it season appropriate by wearing the dress with stockings. I love how it can also be worn easily in the summer, all you have to do is ditch the stockings and wear it with summer sandals.

green with envy

As usual Alexa Chung looks amazing. Especially in this military green Burberry Prorsum dress at London Fashion Week. The belt is very cute and I like how she hasn't gone crazy with accessories. Less is definitely more.
