So filming is in full swing on the Sex & The City movie and already the fashion leaks have started. Carrie is rocking some of the hottest trends of the season and we’re nodding in agreement at all her style choices. Where to start? How about the bags? This bonkers Eiffel Tower bag by Timmy Woods has our hearts just pounding with passion – we want it now! But we’ll have to wait, the bag doesn’t reach stores til January.
In the meantime, there’s always the Fendi Sweetbox bag, a steal at about £600. Onto footwear, Carrie is still loyal to her Manolos but her Dior studded plat-heels (from last season) are given a new twist worn with over-the-knee socks in her own off-beat way. We’ll give it a try with Kurt Geiger’s school-girl socks – cheap and chic!
We went to visit a TV company last week to brainstorm ideas for a teen TV programme. The first question put to us was, "which teen-friendly celebrity would you choose to present a youth-based fashion programme?" Ooh, pressure! We love Alexa Chung and having worked with her in her modelling days we know she's style-savvy yet nice, while Miquita Oliver we find too cool for school (and not in a good way). "What about Peacha Geldof?" came the next question. Noooo! We couldn't protest loudly enough. Do young people like Peaches Geldof? Doesn't she wind you up the way she does us? We don't know the girl, maybe she's lovely, but something about her grates. So the question is, if you could pick anyone, who would you like to see present a fashion programme aimed at 15-16 year olds?

Christmas may be 78 shopping days away (yes, we're counting) but we're already compiling our what-we-want lists. Last year we went crazy for The Goddess Guide by Gisele Scanlon, a tome of sheer gorgeousness with the added bonus of zillions of tips. This year we're getting excited about Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty and Everything Glamour, the new style book from Rachel Zoe which launched last week. She may be out of favour with Nicole Richie and Anna Wintour (fancy stating in an interview that you're more influential than La Wintour, doh!) but we reckon she's still got some worthwhile nuggets of advice to dole out.
