My personal favourite: Festival Chic

This is British TV-presenter and model Alexa Chung at a festival last year. I really like her stripy Breton top combined with the blue skinny jeans

Spotted at London Fashion Week s/s 2009

Emma Watson has emerged as quite the style queen at London Fashion Week. She donned an embroidered leather jacket and charcoal shift dress for the Vivienne Westwood show. And then those shoes... they're amazing!

Fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood, Princess Eugenie and dragqueen Miss Jodie Harsh posed together at the Fashion for Relief fashion show. What an odd looking trio! But I have to say that Princess Eugenie looks amazing in both pictures.

Mischa Barton attends the Samsung Imagination Icon Series, The Red Thread: The Inspiration and Passion of Valentino Garavani at the Hospital Club in London. Ofcourse Mischa wore a headband (which I think is really cool) and an awesome dress. But i'm not sure about the shoes, I think she should've put on some heels...

Sweet music: Sarah O'Connor

Charlotte O’Connor is a 17 year old acoustic singer and songwriter from Blackburn, Lancashire who is currently creating great interest in the music industry. At the age of five, wanting to impress her friends, she sang ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ at the family Christmas dinner, at the age of 15 she picked up a guitar and she hasn’t stopped since!

Influenced by artists like Damien Rice, Pink and Michelle Branch and with abundance of passion, determination and confidence the future looks bright for Charlotte. But this amazing girl doesn't want to be famous: "I was walking in Blackburn town centre recently and I heard a guy saying 'That's Charlotte O'Connor.' I didn't like it. It felt strange." Charlotte just wants to get people to relate to her music and to like it. "I don't really like thinking of the fame side of things."

After recently winning a competition at Sir Paul McCartney's Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) in Liverpool, Charlotte was spotted by Sam Bush - son of legendary music promoter Mel Bush, who is credited with discovering David Bowie and Queen. One Sunday at about 4pm last august, Charlotte got a phonecall from Sam Bush and he asked 'Can we meet up?' Sure, she said, some time next week maybe?, but Sam responded: 'What about in say four hours?' and he drove all the way up to see her there and then.

As far as songwriting goes, Charlotte is inspired by anything and everything. "When I was younger I was a bit too young to be writing love songs. I still am really, so I based my songs on my sister's relationships," says Charlotte. "There's one song called Crazy About You based on her. I think she was a bit shocked when she found out!"

My personal favourite: The White Gown

Mary-Kate Olsen wore this gorgeous white gown to a screening of 'The Wackness' last june. Some people called it a bathrobe, but I think it was an excellent choice of her!

Time for a whole new look

Young actress Taylor Momsen, or her personal stylist, decided it was time for a new look... I love messy bangs and the whole rock-chick look, but not on a 15 year old. Look at the pictures from last year, she looks so pretty and girly and now WOW! What's wrong with looking your own age? Again: I have nothing against Taylor Momsen or her personal stylist, I think she's a great actress, but in the picture on the lower right she seriously looks like someone who needs a ticket to rehab (no offense). A source close to the Taylor told JustJared.com that the new look was precipitated by her character's evolution. Well, that's awesome... but I still don't like it!
