Boris Johnson: Fashion Icon?

Of all the people that could appear on the cover of fashion magazine British Elle who would be most likely? I’m guessing Boris Johnson would be low on that list, if you’d even consider him at all!

But, as part of the 25 years of London Fashion Week celebrations, the Mayor of London is the ‘cover-boy’ of special edition copies of October’s issue. He’s also provided the editor’s letter for the magazine, one of only three blondes who have written it!

Boris obviously felt honoured to be given the opportunity, saying: “Lorraine took what for many might seem a huge risk. Who would have expected me to grace an Elle cover – or any other fashion magazine? The capital leads the world in producing innovative designers, so I’m thrilled to have been involved in this special issue celebrating 25 years of London Fashion Week.”

Is Boris Johnson about to get a new fashion icon status? Whatever next!?

October’s edition of Elle UK celebrating 25 years of London fashion is out now.

Jessica Simpson’s New Lingerie!

Jessica Simpson may have made a ‘boob’ with her new lingerie collection.

She signed a deal back in May with ‘Van Dale’ industries but it is unclear who came up with the name for the collection ‘Intimates’. This is of course the same name as Elle Macpherson’s underwear range! Is this a ploy to attract or trick Elle’s customers or am I being cynical? Could this really be considered a coincidence?

When asked about what we should expect from Jessica Simpson’s ‘Intimates’, she said they were ‘feminine and sweet with a hint of fun’.

I wonder what Elle thinks of it all?
