EDITORIAL: Cara Delevinge & Tom Hiddleston for US Vogue

There are two things I particular love in a fashion editorial: movement and a story. This editorial is one of my favourites (even though it doesn't have movement) because it has a fun and playful story. And beautiful colours. And Cara (who I love) and even more importantly Tom Hiddleston who in my opinion is sex on a stick.

The Devil doesn't just wear Prada

When Lauren Weisberger published her debut novel in 2003 it was met with polarizing opinions. Some loves its insights and almost cruel mocking of the fashion world and its elite, whilst others detested its critical gaze on fashion and above all, it’s thinly veiled roman à clef of none other than Vogue magazine and Weisberger’s former boss Anna Wintour. Some critics accused Weisberger of writing ‘bite-back’ fiction towards her former employer whilst others loved the mocking images of the ‘clackers’ (dubbed so because of the sound of their heels against the ground) and people who consider “calling in fat” to work. When the movie was released in 2006 starring the incomparable Meryl Streep and the ever-demure Anne Hathaway we see the visual representation of that mockery from small touches like Miranda Priestly’s office being eerily similar to Anna Wintour’s (prompting Wintour to recorate) and the utter callousness that Miranda treats Andy with. In many ways the movie improved dramatically on the ‘chick-lit’ book, not least because of Streep’s performance and plot changes. But the question still remains however, even all these years later, is Anna Wintour deserving of the association with the character entitled ‘the Devil’? 
And I can assure you she doesn’t just wear Prada.
She also wears Chanel
