Speaking of Agyness Dean, I’ve just been reading about how she took a tumble on the catwalk at Naomi campbell’s Fashion for Relief Haiti Benefit show this weekend. It reminded me of Naomi herself coming a cropper on Vivienne Westwood’s catwalk in 1993. Good to see both girls laughing it off, when falling off those high shoes must be a painful (and embarrassing) experience!
Agyness is also about to start her own online magazine with former editor of NME Fiona Byrne, called Naag.com (made out of their names) which will be about ‘things they like’.
Whilst searching for images of Agyness, I found this one of her with fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson. I am not really (dare I say) a fan of Tavi’s blog and much prefer one written by another teen blooger; Noa, who is 14 years old and whom I had the pleasure of interviewing recently. Her blog (brains&beauty) is much more intelligently written (find the link in my ‘unmissable blogs’ list on the home page). I can’t say I’m loving Tavi’s ‘granny chic’ and blue rinse; but it’s the ‘teen’ language that Tavi uses in her blog which to me does not tally with the fact that she is constantly on Fashion’s front rows.
Slightly sidetracked – Rant over.
