And we investigate what it ACTUALLY means to buy an "investment piece."
It's a sad conclusion to an already tragic story.

Is every it-girl in London blonde and named Pixie or Peaches? It really seems that way. Anyway, a few of them were at the Temperley show last night, including singer Pixie Lott and Peaches Geldof, who was very pregnant. Minnie Driver was there, too, and it was a relief to see a brunette. That other P-named girl, Pippa Middleton, was a no-show this season, after sparking such excitement last season when she slid into the front row moments before the show, that even the pit photographers started murmuring and all trained their cameras on her. But we're pretty sure she's already plotting which fall Temperley frock she'll wear to her next party.
Author of "How to Walk in High Heels", Camilla has written for the UK Times, the Telegraph, Bazaar, and Time Style and Design in the US. She also covered the shows for Vogue UK online, reviewing all cities and hemlengths, and also assisted in the Galliano Studios. Attending fashion shows long before she was invited, London is where she started as a lowly Cinderella Fashionista. This season she is very excited to share some of her adventures with you. Meet London's It girls. They're the ones designers long to dress and they're as happy in the market or clubs as they are on the red carpet. With a different paparazzi culture (and no pesky Kardashians or Real Housewives), these are the girls who fill the gossip mags and blogs across the pond.
Jeremy Scott's predictably insane collections tend to echoe the young, urbane, hipster party vibe of his front rows (Sky Ferreira, The MisShapes, Olivier Zahm, Cory Kennedy, Peaches Geldof, Waris Ahluwalia, to name a few of yesterday's attendees). However, this season, his reference points were a bit more down-home, but not without Scott's sexy (and at times obscene) rock and roll twist. And I don't think anyone could do a hillbilly-inspired collection without a sense of humor...or without being Jeremy Scott, actually. For girls, there were pale denim overall bustiers, ruffly off-the-shoulder crop tops and skin tight mini skirts and dresses, all appropriate for a hillbilly who likes to party. However, the women's looks were tame in comparison to the men's. Almost every men's look included a pair of "pants" with the butt and crotch cut out--not surprising at all for Scott. We're not sure who would wear those other than male strippers, but that's not really the point.
"Dear Chloe Sevigny. I noticed you made some catty remarks about me in the press. You and I both know the real reasons behind this, don't we? I now kn
The OnePiece is, as the name implies, a one piece sweatsuit type thing out of Norway. The brand describes the garment as "unique lifestyle leisureware, all about the chill out." It's priced between £80 to £120, comes in bright colors, bold patterns, and is marketed to young snowboarder types rather than couch potatoes. As the photos on the site indicate, if you're a hot young Norwegian who likes to goof around on the slopes or in a shopping cart, the OnePiece is for you. The site even notes that it's the perfect get up for recovering from a hangover. Agreed. OnePiece recently launched in the UK where it's developing something of a celeb/fashiony following. Melanie Rickey, Grazia's fashion editor-at-large, recently picked one up in Norway and tweet pic'ed her purchase noting, "Today I got this from Norway. Tomorrow I'm sending my slanket to Oxfam." Sadie Frost and Peaches Geldof have been spotted in the onesy. According to the Daily Mail, Frost says she's dolling them out for Christmas this year. Of course, we've already noted that Scandinavian brands are having a moment.
