In Memorandum: Corrine Day 1962-2010

31 Aug

This post is dedicated to the memory of British fashion photographer Corrine Day, who sadly lost her fight with cancer this weekend. She first rose to prominence in the early 1990s, as one of the pioneers of candid, relatively unstyled images. This was a sharp contrast to the super -groomed, ultra-glossy images of iconic supermodels at the time. She is probably best known for her images of Kate Moss, who she is credited with discovering.

Gemma Ward to retire

21 Aug

Apparently the lure of Hollywood is too much for Ms Ward and she is going to announce that she’s going to ‘officially retire’ soon. She’s been getting rave reviews for her acting…but if it was me, I wouldn’t turn my back on modelling! Gemma’s currently the world’s 11th highest paid model, she’s been the face of Dolce, Valentino, Dior and Louis Vuitton accessories, opened and closed for some of the biggest names in fashion not to mention countless Vogue editorials. But hey, whatever makes her happy! Her new movie The Strangers looks amazing.

UPDATE: Gemma’s not retiring yet, according to Vogue. She’s just taking time out and not appearing in the Spring/Summer 09 shows. Phew!!

I never actually realised before, but they’re all blonde! I think I like Daria even more now, the gorgeous brunette stands out among a sea of blondes.
