Sexy Scots, super short hair and 50 Shades of Grey

Victoria Beckham 2014 Collection

Remember we talked about crop hairstyles a few weeks ago? Well our tips for making this look work are here - and the reason we mention it again is that the New York Fashion Show was full of androgynous haircuts – our own Victoria Beckham used models with sleek crops to showcase her Spring 2014 designs which also featured square shapes, geometric prints and gorgeous asymmetric pleats and ruffles on mini-skirts and tunic dresses. We loved her deep-cut necklines and think our Bracli pearl halter top would work perfectly under them by ramping up the sensuality of the neckline whilst maintaining the drama of the plunging décolletage.

And talking about sexy …from Anarchy to Grey


So, while we had quite a debate going on here at about our hot pick for the role of Christian Grey, we’re happy with the casting decision that is going to reveal Charlie Hunnam to us again. Matt Bomer, Robert Pattinson and Ryan Gosling were all linked to the role, but Hunnam appears to have impressed the casting directors and those of us in the UK know why. Okay, it’s been a while since he stole the show in Queer as Folk but he absolutely sizzled back then as gay teen Nathan Maloney when he was only eighteen so we really can’t wait to see 33 year old Charlie in the BDSM role as the male lead in 50 Shades of Grey.

Charlie has described himself as ‘having spent a lifetime’ preparing for the role … now that sounds intriguing! And for those who haven’t read the book (is there anyone still on the planet who doesn’t have a copy?) and doesn’t know what all the fuss is about, we recommend buying a copy right now and educating yourself … not that you need to master the plot or anything, but it’s a great way to spice up the boudoir a little now that the evenings are drawing in …. Charlie’s co-star is the lucky Dakota Johnson, and if Charlie’s bod in Sons of Anarchy is anything to go by, she’s going to be a lucky lady indeed!
