Kirsten Dunst and V magazine

I used to think that Kirsten Dunst was a little on the dull side and her interest stopped at cheesy teen movies and girl-next door looks. But check out her lateset offering featured in V magazine's spring issue! Styled by super-stylist Nicola Formichetti and photographed by Mario Testino, Kirsten is transformed from a pretty blonde to a ravishing covergirl.

As the sun popped its glorious head out this weekend, my favourite sandals followed suit along with a pair of pasty bare legs and my new utility shorts that I'd been dying to wear, (not quite ready legs in hindsight). As I walked a few yards along the road I realised that I'd fallen into the trap of a typical Brit and dressed for August in April and was pretty bloody cold. Oh dear. Goosebumps did not go well with my new shorts. With the taste of summer and last night’s BBQ in mind my warm-weather wish list is growing by the day and I can't wait to show some appropriately prepared skin. So here's how I plan on staying cool this summer. ...What are you planning to pull out from the back of the closet?

Easter inspiration

After spending the weekend gorging on Easter eggs, hot cross buns and home-cooked meals, I came across a dusty collection of CDs and videos in my old bedroom in Nottingham. Through the ancient TLC, Destiny’s Child and No Doubt albums, I was reminded of the initial reasons I found a love for fashion and style. I still remember how in awe I was of Gwen Stefani in that black and white polka dot dress in her ‘Don’t Speak’ video or how long me and my friends spent arguing over who got to be Baby Spice in our living room Spice Girl's tribute – poor parents had to sit through ten minutes of wailing, high-kicking and zig-a-zig-aahs. Cringe! So who was it that got your imagination running when you were growing up? Here are a few of my personal highlights.

Who didn't rush out and buy a pair of baggy cargo pants and Timberland boots?

Me and my best friend watched this film so many times the video broke. She was Dion and I was Cher!

Natalie Imbruglia with her inimitable sense of cool.

No one rocks a bob like Karen O!

I will never forget this iconic Spice Girl's performance at the Brits!

Another girl group flying the 'Girl Power' flag - Destiny's Child

Caterina or Cat as she was called, was the reason I shortened my name.

I defy anyone to challenge Alex Mac's impressive hat collection!

Feisty trio, TLC.

and finally, the ultimate style icon, Gwen Stefani and her band No Doubt.
