Last week, we reported that Lottie Moss, Kate's 16-year-old sister, had just signed with Storm Models and was poised to become famous in her own right (is it crass to say that outright?). Today, Dazed Digital posted photos from mini-Moss' first-ever editorial shoot, which will appear in Dazed & Confused's February Issue.

For the shoot, Lottie was photographed by Sean and Seng and styled in a variety of age appropriate looks (by designers like Pringle of Scotland and Marc Jacobs) by Robbie Spencer

Dazed also features a brief Q&A with the promising young model, in which she reveals that she loves sloths, sleeps curled up in a bottle, didn't actually read the Harry Potter series (but pretends she has), and kissed someone two weeks ago. Delightful.

Paula Reed Joins MyTheresa as Creative Director

Paula Reed has been announced at the new Creative Director of German luxury retailer MyTheresa, working with the store on its editorial content and global branding. 

The Munich based fashion store opened its bricks and mortar store originally in 1987, subsequently launching the online site MyTheresa.com to bring its luxury fashion to the world. Stocking over 180 designers, the German store has a well-defined brand that will only continue to push boundaries under the direction of Paula Reed.

Founder Susanne Botschen said in a statement that “Paula’s extensive experience across many fields of fashion including retail, journalism, style direction and editorial will make her a great addition to the Mytheresa.com team.”

This position is welcome news after Paula left her last post at Harvey Nichols suddenly after a year in the position after allegedly breaking the company’s 10-year ‘no-fur policy’. Previously, she held the title of style director at Grazia magazine in the UK. Speaking to Business of Fashion, Paula sounded very excited about the new opportunity: 

"My first role is kind of as an agitator a bit — to suggest things they haven’t even thought of before, things that come very naturally to me as somebody with magazine experience: ways of presenting things, ways of introducing designers, and ways of actually introducing customers to newness; ways of supporting partners we do business with through events and editorial projects, ways of supporting new brands that we’re bringing on. They are seeing massive success in taking merchandise personally to the customer and introducing designers and exciting players in the industry directly,”

With such a strong brand to work with, the scope for opportunity and expansion is certainly there and we look forward to seeing the results of this new partnership.

The Best of Smythe Spring 2014 Lookbook

Ever since seeing Blake Lively swan across Manhattan in an array of beautiful blazers on Gossip Girl, I’ve been obsessed with Smythe jackets. The Toronto-based label is well worth an investment and no Canadian closet should be without its wear-anywhere blazer. Of course, the brand is slowly starting to branch into other areas like pants and shirts, but still the Smythe original blazer remains a favourite piece for us peon peasants and celebrities alike — Kate Middleton, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway and Rachel McAdams are just some of those fans.

Now waking us from our winter slumber with the very thought of blazer weather – a rare phenomenon in T.O. – Smythe has recently released its Spring lookbook of board meeting basics, weekend debauchery and brunch time tailoring. It’s a mixed bag of versatility to say the least, but here are a few of my favourite looks.

Smythe 1

The Spring watch military-style jacket in surplus grey is a perfectly casuas weekend piece to team over a maxi dress or with fitted jeans. I also adore the wrap skirt in desert print, here ideally matched with black ankle booties.

Cate Blanchett ‘Looks Like Helen Mirren’ on the Cover of Vogue Australia

vogue-australia

After a string of sartorial and award show victories, Australia’s unofficial figurehead has finally been dealt a harrowing blow – at the hands of Photoshop and Vogue Australia.

Cate Blanchett was shot by photographer Steven Chee for the magazine’s February 2014 cover. At least we’re told it’s Cate Blanchett. The forums aren’t entirely convinced it isn’t the equally phenomenal but much older Helen Mirren, leaving a little perplexed as to why Blanchett’s alabaster skin has been ravaged by a few too many trips to the digital sunbeds.

“This would have been nice and fresh but what the hell did they do to her face,” asks UrbanStyling of the weird tan she definitely doesn’t have in real life. “Oh my god, what did they do her skin and hair?!" adds commenter t-rex, while jmrmartinho thinks she looks sunburned.

We can’t help but agree with DelicateFlower that maybe Vogue Australia’s retouching team got their January and February briefs mixed up.

“Last month Jessica Hart looked like a ghoulish water creature, now they make Cate Blanchett look ordinary? Very disappointing run of covers. What’s happened to the creative flair that Vogue Aus USED to have, cover-wise anyway?”

The cover is getting slammed even harder over on the magazine’s Facebook page.

At least the clothing is beautiful, Blanchett was styled by Jillian Davison in a bronze suit from Gucci’s Resort 2014, which is perfect on the actress and against the ocean background. The accompanying editorial is equally great.

Let this be a lesson not to mess with Australia’s spirit animal.
