Luella i love you...

I for one am completely HATING the idea of Luella being discontinued. As club 21 announced earlier this week that they had "taken the decision not to invest further in its relationship with Luella Bartley ... " and that the Luella label was to 'cease trading' . It gives me the sads. Luella has been one of my favourite designers for years and she's always the one i look forward to on the catwalk!

Although Luella has recently undergone projects with Liberty London doing their new Christmas Window - I hope this isn't the end of Luella. If only I had won 45 million in the euro millions Luella would be mine!!

Here are some of my favourite Luella pieces...

Gaga ooh la la ...

Well she's gone and done it again. Gaga's new video for 'Bad Romance'is her most 'out of the box' approach to a music video to date...

Its no secret the Lady herself is a fan of kermit the muppet but i'm definitely sensing some beaker influences with the big eyed gaga...Don't you think
