Models are always going on and on about what hard work
photoshoots are, but this behind-the-scenes at Topshop
‘s holiday collection sesh with cute photog Max Farago proves for once and for all that it is not quite the backbreaking labor these waifs would have you believe. Anyhoo, all the sparkly sequins, studs, baubles and platforms are making us really excited to buy some fabby cocktail dresses this season … or at least dream about the ones we want. Keep reading »
Topshop just sent us their new Kate Moss holiday collection preview pics, and while we love all the festive party frocks and glammed-up knits, everyone seems to be gravitating toward the pajamas and robes section of the lineup. I don’t know about you guys, but I can remember many a holiday season where I was gifted a pair of pajamas — soft bottoms and a matching top — that I’d wear all winter long. They were usually fleece and bore some kind of childish print (snowflakes, hearts, etc.), and maybe it’s the equivalent of getting new socks in your stocking, but I just loved them! Anyway, perhaps that’s why these Topshop ditties are even more appealing. They’re the much sexier, grown-up versions of your tween holiday loungewear, like this beyond gorgeous butterfly kimono, which is a real standout in the collection. After the jump, the pajama sets, sexy rompers and sleepy winter attire we have our hearts set on this season. Keep reading »
Run, do not walk to Topshop. Henry Holland — the British designer who is best friends with Agyness Deyn and the master behind the polka dot dress that a pregnant M.I.A wore to the Grammy Awards — collaborated with U.K. hosiery brand Pretty Polly to create a limited edition series of tights that non-supermodels and celebs can afford. And now they’re finally available in Topshop stores. Keep reading »

My inspiration board is filled with photographs taken by the Sartorialist master Scott Schuman, and my wallet has been depleted ever since Topshop came to New York City.
Now, to make all my style dreams come true, the British high street store has tapped Scott to create shopping pages for customers, based on his iconic photographs. He’s broken down his top five looks from Fashion Week and made each item shop-able through the Topshop website. Meaning that his brilliant eye for fashion has quickly translated into online shopping.
The best part? Your new style looks only require a quick click to buy and all of the sudden you’ve become the stylish girl on the cobblestone streets. All that I’m left wanting for now is my own image appearing on his blog… [Topshop]

We love designer Emma Cook, and clearly we’re crazy about Topshop, but we’re having a little trubs drumming up any affection for these new platforms. A product of their latest collaboration, the shoe (far left) costs a whopping $290, while the boots (middle and right) weigh in at $340. The height and chunkiness are totally on trend–we’ll give them that. I could even learn to love those animal prints. But for that amount of money, most ladies would probably rather invest in something more classic, right? I know I would. Thoughts on these shoes anyone? Keep reading »
Sigh. I love The Daily Mail so much. You never know what those crazy British birds are gonna do next! Today it’s a “real woman” — cough, intrepid journalist, cough — Claire Coleman modeling clothes from the brand new Kate Moss for Topshop line. Her reasoning:
“When I see Kate Moss in a dress, I’m not just looking at the dress, I’m looking at Kate Moss and the dress. And however beautiful the dress, I can’t help thinking that it’s going to look an awful lot better on her than it does on me. Moss may not be getting any younger, but she still has the gamine proportions of the 16-year-olds who seem to form the backbone of Topshop’s customer base. The question is can real women like me and my friends, who are rather closer in age to Miss Moss, actually wear any of the clothes she is offering?”
Ain’t that the question indeed, sis! This definitely makes me consider how sometimes we buy clothes for all the wrong reasons. But that’s about it. Keep reading »
