Dior Homme is my menswear holy grail. It was the first brand I ever got obsessed with (way back in 2005), it’s one of the toughest invites to get your hands on during Paris Fashion Week, and in January 2014, at the tail-end of three weeks on the road at the shows in Europe, this collection was presented and restored my faith in clothing.Click to Continue!
Me, bleeding. 1. Yesterday, in a fit of misguided heroism, I attempted to catch a glass that had fallen on the bench and toppled over the side.

Screengrab: The Cut Oh my most exciting of extremely exciting moments. This last week has been a good one. First off, linked a couple of times by Jezebel (my favourite go-to guide for celebrity, sex and fashion for women), and now, The Cut has used my Tavi Gevinson/Siri Tollerod Twitpic from backstage at Christian Dior Couture.
