It is 5.20pm and already pitch black outside, and all this the week the weather has been truly dire, I even made the foolish error of wearing ballet pumps the other day - I know it is my own fault, as they were from Primark, but really I think my feet would have had more protection if I'd wrapped my feet in towels. Utterly useless.
Anyway, one thing has managed to cheer me up this week, besides the hilarious, so bad it is almost good, 'The only way is Essex'...is the new issue of Vogue! Dare I say it has brightened up my day like the moon lights up the starry night....I realise this is a terrible, terrible metaphor, but I felt I should emphasise the 'Star' theme of this month's issue.
Besides all of the normal beautiful designer clothes etc they have in each issue, which usually only serves to depress me when I think 'ooh that is nice...I wonder how much....damn it is more than my student loan..for a year', they also have a special decade of supermodels photoshoot, basically showing all the big names, aka Moss and Schiffer, etc.
Interestingly they also decided to put Emma Watson on the front cover, and did a massive spread on her. Although I suppose HP is coming out this month, so perhaps not a huge coincidence. Is she really a super star, is she worthy of front cover status? This seems to be an issue which is causing great debate on the chat forums.
I suppose she is a bit of a super star, and whilst I feel sorry for her, having to have been in the media spotlight for the last 10 years, comments such as 'I was visiting Cambridge and I was on the bus and all these people were trying to get my autograph, and I suddenly thought, why am I even on the bus? I'm famous!', don't necessarily make me warm to her immediately. I have had to paraphrase that quote, as one of my house mates has pounced on my Vogue, and I haven't had a chance to get it back off them.
There is also a nice horoscope themed photo shoot, but I almost miss the grand Tim Walker photo shoots, they usually seem to have in the xmas issue. But apart from that, top form as always Vogue.
