Disney Fairy-Tale Wedding

Walt Disney Co. is looking to grab a bigger piece of the wedding cake, and feed its burgeoning Princess business, with a new line of character-inspired bridal gowns aimed at women who want to look and feel like Cinderella at the ball on their big day. The Walt Disney Co. has teamed with bridal designer Kirstie Kelly to create a collection of gowns inspired by the favorite Disney princess characters, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Ariel from "The Little Mermaid," Belle from "Beauty and The Beast" and Jasmine from "Aladdin."

"We wanted women to feel like they had something in common with these princesses. We had to identify who the princesses are now and who does the everyday girl relate to," Kelly said. A mood and fashion sensibility was assigned to each princess-themed gown: Cinderella is for the classic glamour bride; Sleeping Beauty is about pretty romance; Snow White is sweet elegance; Ariel is sultry allure; Belle is stylish sophistication; and Jasmine is bohemian chic.

With the Sleeping Beauty castle as a backdrop, this is absolutely charming.

Ahh, a Disney fairy-tale wedding is a dream come true for Disney fans like moi.

H&M Loves Kylie

We're BACK!

A thousand apologies on the recent VF hiatus. The VF girls have been busy with love, work, exams, job interviews, London and mundane everyday commitments. Haha, excuses.

Kylie Minogue is the legs, oops, I mean face of the H&M beachwear line, 'H&M loves Kylie'. The limited edition collection boasts fifteen 'Kylie-inspired' styles. "H&M's main beachwear range pushes all the right trend buttons in a look that smacks of glam beach-life, where glinting silver and gold metallic play off graphic black and white animal prints, while sizzling hot hues of yellow, red and pink reflect the surfing influences", says the press release.

I've to say the campaign is very very well-executed and stunning. Enjoy.
