Miranda Kerr’s sensible baby gift

You will certainly be surprised to that Miranda Kerr gave her baby boy Flynn his first taste of an organic of albeit as his first birthday gift. It is certainly a healthier way to introduce her baby to cakes though she had hundred ways of showing off her fashion fever. You can call her a supermodel mom who has super responsibilities over her son.

She said that it was the very first cake that her son had even seen or tasted since his birth and it was a yummy cake which is also gluten-free. We had a lot of balloons for his birthday bash, and had also invited a balloon man as Flynn loves balloons, added Miranda.

Miranda is also all happy about her husband Orlando Bloom who is a great dad to their little son!

Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham of Golden Globe Red Carpet!

It was a treat to see Kate Winslet in one of Jenny Packhams’ pre autumn/winter 2012-13 collection for the recent Golden Globe award ceremony. Should we call her a sexy siren in a perfect gown from the designer or just praise her for the ways she can carry anything like a peacock. We hear that the designer had sent the actress a few gowns before she had settled on this one for the red carpet.

Packham was all praise for the Vogue cover girl for her strong sense of style that reflected her as a divine beauty.  She also added that she believes that the dress should make a woman experience confident and look gorgeous. Kate wears a lot of classic alluring styles with distinct silhouettes that works well together.

The dress chosen this time for the red carpet is a perfect combination of looks and does not overshadow Kate's beauty.

One of the 2010 ones-to-watch, Wasikowska first shot to fame when she starred in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, together with Johnny Depp. She played the title role in Jane Eyre Last year, playing with Michael Fassbender.

MOSCHINO's London Arrival

For the first time ever MOSCHINO is bringing its Cheap & Chic label to London Fashion Week this season. On Saturday February 18 between 1.30 and 3.30, their collections are ready to be shown. And the venue is yet to be confirmed.

“To debut in London with MOSCHINO Cheap & Chick is something I have been thinking about for a while,” Said Rossella Jardini, MOSCHINO creative director. "To have presence in a new city gives the younger line a stronger, more autonomous personality. London is renowned for its contemporary style and famous sense of humor making it the perfect place to exhibit Moschino Cheap & Chic's DNA and energy. I'm sure London will be the appropriate platform for this line to grow whilst still remembering its roots."

During Milan Fashion Week the MOSCHINO mainline collection will continue to show off. Cheap & Chic will join McQ and Stella McCartney who are returning to London this season - as is Belstaff, which will present its first collection since the brand's re-launch on Sunday February 19 from 3.30 to 5.30pm.
