The photographer Richard Corman has an exhibition at W hotel in NYC portraying his pics of Madonna in the summer of 1982 – before she was the grand dame she has since become. Her energy simply pops out of the pictures, you can see how she had the drive – with a capital D – very early on. Check an interview with Richard on

3 – Sophy Robson – Luxury nail artist as her title currently reads. Sophy has worked with all the big titles Vogue (UK, French, Russian and Japanese), Vanity Fair, Glamour, Grazia, Elle etc. Her nails are always impressive and push boundaries.

Especially loving these nail art themes: holographic – studs – tie die – ombre – dots – tribal – monochrome – galaxy.

Japanese Blossom & Lady Gaga Nail Art

Would spring finally be in the air? I saw some shots on instagram of Japanese cherry blossom and immediately got inspired to do soft pink nails. I think the whiter the better – to get that super soft chalky pink look. Topshop Milkshake & Essie Petal Pink are my favourite, together with a Repossi ring would be nice if I ever win the lottery…

In Tokyo they love their nail art and spend huge amounts and time decorating these little treasures. Salons offer the most complicated designs you can think of and even office workers have bejewelled talons. Last year I visited an amazing nail shop in where Lady Gaga has her nails made in Daikayama The designs were very detailed, super stiletto shapes with chains and lots of embellisment for example. Prices matched the intricate designs and were sky high. But in Japan not only pop stars but even office workers have nail art done. Check out ‘every day’ salon

Easter Nails by Marian Newman


Marian Newman has done the most amazing nail feature for Another magazine. The nails are inspired by Easter and feature the ultimate nude, dark chocolate and embellished nails. I especially like the chocolate nail which has a stiletto tip. Happy Easter!

This look epitomises SS13 for me – ear rings, gorgeous red/orange matt lips, sculpted skin, smokey eyes with plum accent and bleached eyebrows. Model Emily Baker looks stunning.
