Now that summer’s almost here, and bikes are out in full force, how does a style maven dress when she chooses to move in the elements rather than simply sit in an air-conditioned vehicle? Vogue asks loyal cyclists Lily Cole, Agyness Deyn, Hanneli Mustaparta, and Pamela Love, for their tried-and-tested tips on how to pull together looks for pedaling through the city.
“I love it when women cycle in heels,” says Cole. The redhead beauty has been spotted in short vintage frocks whizzing around Cambridge University (where she’s currently studying art history) on a sleek black Pashley Guv’nor. “I mostly wear trainers or flip-flops,” she continues sheepishly, “but I’m thinking of experimenting with wedges—I have Ferragamo and Christian Louboutin versions.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, intrepid style blogger Mustaparta is another bike/heel advocate. And although she’s shrewd when it comes to her wheels—“I bought a really cheap Brentwood so I wouldn’t be worried it would get stolen!”—she throws caution to the wind when it comes to elevated footwear. “Biking makes it surprisingly easy to do a full day in Chloë Sevigny’s Opening Ceremony heels,” she says with a laugh. “Walking in them tires me out!”
its just breath-taking..
Finally, I have time to post this amazing event *I know its too late though*, but I was just too busy lately. Anyway, this event displayed Alexander McQueen’s breath-taking pieces from his post-graduate show until his tragic death. All those pieces represent McQueen’s innovative, ingenuity, inspirational, iconic expression of fashion, himself, culture, and politics which was crafted beautifully into dramatic silhouette, cutting, design, and unforgettable theatrical show. And by looking at those those pieces you can tell that they are McQueen’s. Those pieces of art are just beyond imagination.
“In life, it’s important to create opportunities for oneself instead of waiting for opportunities to land on your lap. You just have to get out there and chase your dreams and fantasies. Especially if you came from nothing and you have nothing to lose.”

This mermaid dresses are totally gorgeous! I love especially how this dress can shape our body and flatten the looks. The best thing is it can fit to all body types.
