A wedding with lots of titles

The wedding of Britain's Prince William and his darling Catherine (Kate) Middleton on the 29th of April was a living fairy tale watched by an entire world. Hastily called the “wedding of the century” it was though a stunning and opulent show, mostly because of its media coverage and the cheerful support of a celebrating nation. I admit being caught up by this modern tale of princes, but how can you not be charmed by this modern young couple that looked so genuine in their emotions?

A bit of Alexander's genius

Fashion's "terrible child" Alexander McQueen follows in the steps of fellow couturiers and lends his brilliant talent for a Designer Collaboration with American mega chain store Target.

McQ Alexander McQueen for Target, released at the beginning of March, is a rock-chic styled collection that mixes McQ (McQueen's diffusion line) classic craftsmanship aesthetic with "a rebellious, nostalgic flare", having as muse the lead singer of the British rock band Duke Spirit, Leila Moss (yep, another Moss).
