We've been traipsing round to all the press days and launches to find out what's in store for 2008. On the fashion front we've looked at so many floral dresses, tie dye tops and gladiator sandals, quite frankly we never want to see another one. But sunglasses are a different thing entirely. Ray-Ban Wayfarers? Pfft! A distant memory. Saucer-sized seventies sunnies? Passe. Our new obsession is the heart-shaped sunglasses we saw at Urban Outfitters and George At Asda. Not for the bashful, these are the epitome of flirty, feisty and fun!

A big debate is going on at www.jezebel.com regarding Madonna's lovely eleven-year-old Lourdes. The big deal? Her eyebrows. Much as we celebrate grooming for those who are interested, we wouldn't like to dictate that anyone should shave, bleach, tweeze or wax. Surely it's up to the individual? If Lourdes is aware of her downy top lip and bushy brows but making a decision to go au naturel then props to her. The key issue is choice. We think she's adorable anyway, but refusing to be swayed by conventional rules of beauty is what makes her super-stunning in our books. Hmm, wonder who she gets that from?

Apologies for our prolonged absence. We've been moving house (Navaz) and holidaying at Disneyland (Donna) but are back in action now. Navaz was lucky enough to work with model-about-town (and Charles Anastase's muse) Valentine Fillol-Cordier last week while shooting for Asos magazine. Sometimes a model is so inherently cool she doesn't actually need a stylist, she just styles herself! Valentine was one of those, not to mention the most charming sweetheart to boot.
Here are some of her favourite beauty products:
Hair product - "For a conditioning treatment I use Leonor Greyl Palm Oil. I put it on an hour before shampooing and wrap it in clingfilm. I also love Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray."
Lip balm/lipgloss - "Oh I hate lipgloss - it sticks to my hair! But I use lip balm by Bigelow. It's the oldest pharmacy in New York and it contains almond oil. It's really nice, I always get it when I'm in New York."
Eyeliner - "I like to mix black and brown together. I use brown underneath and black inside. Pout is my favourite, the packaging is super-cute."
Moisturiser - "At the moment I'm using Chanel Beaute Initiale. You have to moisturise your skin. I really think so. I wash mine 2-3 times a day and I always take my make-up off at night. It's so important otherwise you get spots two days later and then wonder why...!"
