Gianni Barbato Update

I just found this shoe from Barbato's A/W09/10 collection on Imelda's website. Utterly fab. I haven't been this excited about shoes in a long time.

Will somebody please buy these?

By Gianni Barbato. Please excuse the teeny image, you simply must click to view the shoes up close. Skulls on the heels? Sensational.

The Week That Was...The Best of Wednesday

Best hair makeovers at Redken - Caroline and I go wild with volume

Electric eyelids at Marnie Skillings

Hair at Kirrily Johnston. (Model Myf told me afterwards that the hairdressers actually put glue in their hair - the models were told only after the show. Cruel.)

Body/swimsuits at TV. We must get our hands on some of those mesh cut-outs.

Accessories by Zakie.D at White Sands in the Ready To Wear Swimsuit Collection. The leather wings are absolute winners, a quirky take on the current big shoulder trend.

Shoe of the day. Marni wood and leather. Simple, classic, classy, crafty and clever.

The Week That Was...The Best of Tuesday

My favourite model of the day - Madeline an Illionare, what a spunk.

Hair at Ellery

The "No makeup" makeup look at Manning Cartel

And shoe of the day? Pip Edwards' Balenciaga beauties won the title by far.
