If anyone picked up Vogue UK this month (well, the March issue), you could be forgiven for thinking it was going to be about not washing your hair (can anyone find a link to that awful article Chung wrote in Vogue about how the UK aesthetic means you don’t wash your hair?!) and wooden clogs, but despite the rather morose-looking young woman (should I recognise her?*) on the cover, there are some really beautiful editorials within its glossy pages. There are even more advertisements, which I have come to appreciate as artworks in their own right, but it doesn’t numb the pain of paying almost €6 to be made feel like I have to spend a lot more money in order to have any value as a woman or, rather, as a human being.

But the best thing about this, the international collections issue, is the fact that there are a serious amount of amazing editorials, my favourite of which has to be this: Girls Allowed. If I could dress like one fashion spread for the rest of my life, I might choose this one – pastels, beautiful embellishments, ribbons, more ribbons, more embellishment and a bit of what my mother would describe as a bold look on my face. Glee.

I just love everything about this shoot – and the shoes are divine too. There are so many of the current season’s “big trends” here: lace, pastels, candy colours, and of course that Alice in Wonderland-type whimsy that’s going to be even bigger when “The Film” comes out.
