Is Kate Moss about to be elbowed off her pedestal as the Rimmel London girl? The Daily Mirror reports that Alexa Chung and Gemma Arterton are rumoured to be in the running to take over the title. Lily Cole, Agynes Deyn and Daisy Lowe have already been screen tested and rejected so far.
Meanwhile, newly launched in France is KATE MOSS, a 300 page unofficial biography by French journalist Francoise-Marie Santucci. Paul Smith hosted the launch of the book in Paris on Wednesday.

We never wore Henry Holland's T-shirts but we have to say we think he has a face for telly, this presenting gig he did for Vogue TV is rather hilarious, no?

Asos.com is getting better and better and I'm not just saying that because I'm shooting for their magazine! We attended the high summer preview and the new collection is big on embellished summer dresses (dress them up or down blah blah blah) and romantic hot fuchsia very reminiscent of last summer's Rodarte. And if you're not over wacky prints yet, have a good ogle at these Eley Kishimoto lovelies which will be on sale from May.

It may be officially spring but that doesn't mean the bitter gales and showers storms are anywhere near abating. So all those wafer-thin floral frocks and barely-there blouses are going to have to wait a wee while longer. Why do designers even bother to have seasons? Climate change has made things so chaotic surely it makes more sense to load on the layers all year round? Looking at next autumn's shows, the go-to layering piece seems to be the humble poloneck (or turtleneck if you're a stateside reader). Missoni got the look totally nailed with their smart teal-n-tan take on seventies working-girl layers (and they've even done sunglasses for autumn!). Get in there now with a jersey poloneck from American Apparel, just the thing to go under a flirty flouncy frock until summer comes round.
