Whenever Aymeline Valade is around, I make sure to jump on the pictures and keep them somewhere on my computer since I've had a major crush on her for years now. Either in brown or recently in blonde, she is simply one of the most strong and androgynous faces out there. In case you're not convinced, just take a look at these effortlessly cool new shots for models.com.

The best thing about a fashion show is always what's going on Backstage. And to bring it to an other level: the best thing about a Prada show is what's going on Backstage. Because there is no other girl like the Prada girl, lined up like this these creatures look as fierce as it can get. This season again, despite the fact that I liked the show a bit less than usually, the backstage stands out compared to all the other brands. My favorite? Hedvig Palm, because she's always my favorite and the greasy hair/dirty make-up combination: hard to love it but impossible to hate; the Prada effect. Oh, and this can be added casually: Gemma Ward and Lara Stone are back. With all the supermodels making a comeback and mixing up the current supermodel listing, I'm pretty sure when I say that the best castings ever are ahead.

I'm just going to ignore Fashion Week for a second and focus on two things I absolutely adore: good pictures and Pokémon. Yes, I am from that generation and have a weakness for everything slightly kawaii such as Pokémons or Totoros. Sailor Moon even made me start drawing when I was very very young! The years passed but the love for everything japanese stayed...unnecessary to mention that when I found 'pokexfashion', a blog specialized in making the best of both worlds come together, I couldn't stop but being amazed about how aesthetic and visually interesting this combination actually looks. Hopefully one day someone is really going to launch an ad campaign like this, it would be a refreshing surprise among the often very dusty ads!

Since the first second I saw it, I knew that this is going to be one of my favorite editorials...and I was right. So pure, so simple and weirdly natural, all you need is the incredible Julia Nobis and a wonderfully oldfashioned sofa, stolen from your grandmother in an empty, white space. The contrast is perfect. I wish all magazine would feature editorials like this one.

It's hard NOT to notice that the Fashion Month is definitely on. In fact, we already switched from New-York to London and one thing I especially like to do during this time is keeping my eye on some people, not many but Hanne Gaby Odiele is definitely in my top 3. While I'm typing this I actually think of who else I observe that closely or what other person I googled that often. Yes, I google people. So, since Hanne is probably on first, second and third position I was delighted as usual to see her being awesome on the catwalk and even more awesome off the catwalk. She's one of the few people who just pull off this quirky, fun and colorful look, she just owns it - the clothes don't own her. And a special bonus for always mixing such individual strong pieces from different designers: as we all know it's easy to look awesome in a head-to-toe look. The best bonus probably is - in the end- her smile though.....and her bleached brows. I'd take these.

Hallelujah, I officially found the best suit I've seen in a long time. Usually I prepare myself for a very very nice (NOT) price when it comes to things I like, but this one actually comes from Urban Outfitters aka means it's affordable. I had to check twice. Affordable and perfect. Slightly oversized, high waisted and cropped trousers and a matching boxy jacket, oversized too. After all, whats making this look work and fun is that you look like a little boy in it. Everything I like! Wait for me - I'm gonna come and buy you, wherever you are....you jacket. And pants. I'm starting to talk to clothes, pretty sure sign it's time for me to stop looking at a computer screen. Still gonna hunt this down, yessss.

Alexa Chung has, as we all know, some seriously good style; in fact she's one of my favorites when it comes to the way she dresses. Playful, young and with a hint of innocence. Very refreshing considering that most of the well known people on this planet rather undress than dress. When I randomly stumbled over this picture of Alexa I just thought: that is THE perfect outfit. Oversized red and black checkered coat, crisp white buttoned up shirt and a pair of leather trousers with biker details. Since unfortunately I don't have Alexa's incredible DNA I can't quite pull it off like she does, so below is how I would personally wear this look, in my usual, more casual way. I love the slightly cocoon shaped houndstooth Dufflecoat from Coach, my usual dose of Carven by including a leopard printed sweatshirt (since you all know how much I like to mix and match patterns) and some high waisted boyfriend jeans, black distressed please, like these ones from Current/Elliott. Sounds like a good plan until someone talented invents something to make the looongest legs grow on trees. So that I can get a pair like Alexa's. Then we'll talk about the perfect outfit again.

I stumbled upon those covers today and just had to take a picture of them: I adore Alexa Chung and love Nicolas Ghesquière's work for Louis Vuitton. No need to say that Pop Magazine brought it to the next level by putting this lovely lady on their cover - wearing the F/W15 collection, which is now available in selected Louis Vuitton boutiques - totally excited!
