Just last week it was announced that rock royalty Georgia May Jagger would be the new face of Rimmel London. 17 year old Georgia May, the youngest daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, shot the campaign during the week looking ever inch the sultry beauty with her scarlet lips & glamourous waves.

Georgia May is having one hell of an amazing year – with her modelling career kicking off by doing a campaign for Hudson Jeans, appearing on the cover of Vogue Uk and now following in the footsteps of international beauties such as Kate Moss, Lily Cole and Sophie Ellis Bextor by becoming the face of Rimmel London.

Georgia May dazzled on the set of the campaign in a gorgeous sequin midnight blue Mango dress which is priced at €139 and in stores now

You know us here at STELLAR Towers, we’re dedicated followers of fashion, eager to jump on the next harem pant, shoulder pad, or knee-warmer bandwagon, (well maybe not the knee warmers.) But there’s one trend that’s got us thinking, and not just about what shoes will match it. Ethical fashion is a term that’s been bandied about for quite some time now. Not just en vogue because some trendy celeb has been spotted in an organic cotton tee or vintage coat, this is one trend that might just have the sustainability to outlast the season. 

However with lofty folks in far-off fashion capitals talking about organic this and ethical that, it’s tough for us lay fashionistas to know where to start in making practical, affordable steps towards a more sustainable wardrobe. Thankfully, a group of Irish ethicalistas (yep, it’s a word) have set up  to sort out the fact from fibs and give you all you need to know for dressing ethically and stylishly in Ireland. 

And for the thrifty among you, one upcoming Re-dress event might be the soundest wardrobe investment you’ve made all year. Rather than splurging 80 quid on another new dress, learn how to make 5 new dresses and more with the Crafternoon Tea Design Day organsed by Re-dress. You’ll get a crash course in all things up-cycling. Learn how to alter your existing threads, and begin to make new ones and with a follow-up intermediate course on offer, you’ll be a dab-hand at dress-making in no time. 

See all the info on the flyer below, and happy stitching x

The olsens

Think big sunnies, you think the Olsen twins… and soon you can snap up a pair from their very own label The Row. The design duo MK and Ashley are branching out and adding four sunglasses styles to their clothing range – a classic metal aviator, vintage inspired brow line rims, 60s style round shades and oversized square frames. They’re concentrating on these for four for the mo’ as they tend to suit more than one face shape but are hoping to launch even more styles down the line. We can’t wait…

Looks like Jimmy Choo is branching out some more. According to founder and president, Tamara Mellon, her vision has always been to fully accessorize the woman so the next step on her hit list is perfume… because it is an integral part of the modern wardrobe, of course! The fabulous footwear and accessories label has signed a 12 year fragrance licensing agreement with Inter Parfums which produces perfumes for the likes of Paul Smith, Lanvin and Burberry. So as of 2010, we will see the legendary name lining the perfume aisles too…
