I'm also shocked at the passing of such a talented if not troubled singer, Amy Winehouse, may you rest in peace. I always loved her music and her voice, my fave being the Mark Ronson collaboration & cover of 'Valerie'. (Live acoustic link)
This weekend has been a very sad weekend indeed. But I'd like to leave you all with some notes of sunshine if, at all possible.
Beyonce looks smoking hot in her promotional shoot for her album '4' by Greg Gex.
I hear that Christina Hendricks of Mad Men is designing her own swimwear range and is very close to signing a deal.
Also, a certain Harry Potter star is also considering becoming a fashion designer. I get why Christina is designing a range, but I do find it more and more ridiculous hearing that just because someone is famous and loves fashion, they have the necessary skills to become a talented designer. Ok, maybe i'm a little skeptical, but the starlet has done a fair amount of work for People Tree Foundation and worked on a capsule collection, which has been ethically produced, in collaboration with Alberta Ferretti. I guess we'll see if it's any good.
