My Look!

Earlier I put up a collage of what I wanted to wear for the fashion mag launch. Here's a pic of me in the outfit sans the YSL clutch. This is my first time putting up a picture of myself on the blog! I didn't wear the long earrings. I opted for Swarovski studs and this fab necklace I got from Wallis. The Zara satin sandals won for obvious reasons (the black ones would have looked bleh on blue).

The launch was for a quarterly fashion magazine named Shiloh and I am the assistant fashion editor (fancy!). A post with pictures from the event will be up soon.

I look so angry in the first pic so here's a happier one with the magazine's editor-in-chief, Helen Van De Kaa.

David Beckham for H&M

Wow! H&M means business this year. I reckon their mantra is world domination. First the AIDS Campaign with major celebrities, then the partnership with Versace and now they have teamed up with David Beckham (sexy man, btw) to launch his new bodywear range. Read the press release below.

David Beckham will together with H&M make his Bodywear range for men available to millions of fans globally through a long-term partnership.

The long-term alliance will allow David Beckham to produce and exclusively sell his eagerly awaited new DAVID BECKHAM bodywear line in around 1800 H&M stores in around 40 countries worldwide. It marks the beginning of a significant relationship between H&M and David Beckham, with new Bodywear products being launched seasonally. The initial range will be launched to coincide with Valentine’s Day 2012 from February 2nd.

“Over the past year, I’ve been developing my Bodywear range with my team and I’m extremely positive about what we have designed and produced,” said David Beckham. “The final piece in the jigsaw was a retail partner who has the vision and capability to distribute these products globally. In H&M we have found the perfect partner to collaborate with going forward, I’m excited and looking forward to showcasing the range to H&M customers from February.”

“David Beckham is a true icon both of sport and style. It is incredibly exciting for H&M to be entering into a long-term partnership with him for his DAVID BECKHAM Bodywear line. It is the start of an amazing adventure for us at H&M. Valentine’s Day in 2012 is going to be a very exciting time indeed”, says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Head of Design.

Recognised in every corner of the world, David Beckham has consistently redefined the world he lives in. Considered by many to be one of the most marketable individuals in the world, Beckham and his business partner Simon Fuller in 2011 announced the launch of a new Brand Identity and DAVID BECKHAM branded product line, to include bodywear.

“This partnership with H&M is an important step in the evolution of David’s journey from sporting hero to entrepreneur and icon”, said Simon Fuller, David Beckham’s long time business partner. “H&M’s enthusiasm and support for this venture, combined with their scale and reach, will continue to enhance the power of David’s image around the world.’

Fashion Mag Launch

I snagged an invite to a fashion magazine launch thanks to the jewellery trend reports I did for them. I don't have enough money to go on a shopping spree, so I'm making use of what I've got. So here's a collage of what's in my wardrobe... I don't have the YSL clutch,yet. I'm excited to wear my first ever jumpsuit, a great fashion steal from French Connection. Which shoes should I wear?
