Although Rosie Huntington Whiteley has now become a successful model worldwide, she has revealed that she was not always accepted in the States.
The 24-year-old Victoria’s Secret model told Harper’s Bazaar magazine that she wasn’t welcomed when she first tried to make it in Los Angeles.
She said: “All I kept hearing was ‘Honey, you gotta change this; your hair’s this; your legs are that; you’re not enough this; you’re not enough that; you’re too much this; why are you wearing that?’ And so it was a constant stream of judgement.”
The model added that she did not fit in with her fellow models on the scene, adding: “I was always the girl who would turn up to fashion shows in trainers, flares, a shearling jacket and braids in my hair.
“I look back and I was really cute, but all the other girls were slick, groomed and elegant, while I’d be backstage drinking a can of beer.
“It’s a great British thing, but that kind of thing doesn’t go down well in America.”

We never know the right time to buy a new coat for fall but we do know the wrong time. Every year without fail we wait until the mercury drops to buy a new topper for the season and every year without fail the selection of coats left on store floors is subpar. Thats why this month were getting our hands on something warm yet stylish before we actually need it. And what exactly will we be looking for in terms of trends? Something plaid (at Joe Fresh!) or furry (at Topshop), minimal or moto, vested (at American Eagle) or wild (at Old Navy) basically so long as its cute and $200 or less, we want to wrap it around our body.

Our team at Eco Fashion World thought it would be appropriate and helpful to introduce a series targeted at aiding readers in understanding the varying criteria which compose ‘eco fashion’. With the popularity of ‘eco fashion’ growing, there still seems to be a lot of confusion about particular aspects and beyond that, there are still many people who have no idea what it is. The series is planned to read in a ‘textbook basics’ format with added color in the form of corresponding images, specific brand and design examples, resource information and more, to tie it all together for our readers.

Through the series we look to cover a brief overall history of sustainable and ethical fashion, including a spotlight on some industry pioneers; fair trade practices, certifications, and governing bodies; organic fibres, materials, methods in the manufacturing process, and certification processes involved; natural dyeing of textiles including a review of techniques; recycled materials and ways they are transformed into new things; artisanal work, the traditions involved, and overall social benefits which may result; DIY projects with a list of resources to gather inspiration and instructions; and a focus on the glorious charm that is associated with vintage pieces, alongside their contribution to sustainability. Designers and their individual works will be featured in relation to each edition, tying their specific contributions to each area. Check back in two

Women have their black dress, and we have the white shirt. Timeless, chic and easy to match, never inapropriate: undoubtedly a must-have! Let us review some styles that you have to own in your wadrobe:
The white poplin shirt, with cutaway collar and classic cuffs, is the quitessence of shirts. Simple and almost severe, it symbolizes eternal elegance. Just like this Charles Tyrwhitt model, make sure that it features pearl buttons.
$69 from Charles Tyrwhitt.
Wear it with a navy suit and a striped tie.
The small cutaway collar, just like on this Filippa K shirt has made its comeback since few seasons with a minimalistic, skimpy view of fashion: slim ties, fine lapels, slim fitted trousers (a rebith of the 1960s Mods trend).
