I have a huge crush on Kansas-born model Lindsey Wixson. Her strange Betty Boop look with her ‘bee-stung lips’ and gapped front teeth is undeniably hypnotic and infectious.

Starting her modeling career at only 15 years old she has become modelling’s biggest rising star and has campaigned for the biggest fashion houses including  John GallianoVersace VanitasMiu MiuJill Stuart and Alexander McQueen

Her most recent spread for British Vogue shot by Terry Richardson.

I remember buying my first pair of flared Lee jeans in middle school. A couple of years later I took a pair of scissors to them and cut them into frayed denim shorts. I am regretting that now…

All it needs is a loose fitting top and some height to lengthen your legs and you’re ready to go.

On Tuesday night, my work place was transformed in to a set of a fashion show to host the Trelise Cooper Boadroom Collection. Trelise Cooper is one of the most successful New Zealand fashion designers but she does not label her clothing as New Zealand clothing. Being such a young country with no real heritage of fashion icons, Trelise had to constantly create new ideas and products to cross international borders and search for new markets.

We were lucky enough to view both the original Boardroom Collection as well as some pieces from the new Spring collection. The boardroom collection featured both feminie silhouettes of peplum jackets and dresses with large shoulder accents as well as soft ruffles in floral prints. For Spring, lines were more fluid with a balance of print, texture and colour blocking in neutral tones, finishing off with bright hues in pink and cyan.

It was a great night flowing with drinks, good food and amazing outfits. Here are some snaps from the night.
