Stop whatever you're doing and look at this! Iggy Azelea's new video, Fancy, is a recreation of one of the finest films that the world has ever seen. Clueless has had such a profound effect on us, that now if we see that Paul Rudd is in a film, we take it as a mark of quality. In the music video, Iggy plays the confident but ditzy Cher and another recent musical favorite, Charli XCX, portrays the adorable Ty quite flawlessly. We recommend rewatching Clueless immediately after for optimal enjoyment and if your appetite is still not satiated, then look no further; we have gathered together the essentials, just in case you feel inclined to dress as Cher, bump some No Doubt in your white Jeep and exclaim "As if!" with your color-coordinated BFF.

Happy International Women's Day, everyone!
This week, courtesy of RF Ken Doll, who seems to be intent on reaching hitherto unheard of levels of awesomeness, we found ourselves at the Haim gig in lovely Brixton. We haven't exactly been backwards in coming forwards in declaring our love for Haim (and here too!), but safe to say, that it was cemented with diamonds on Thursday. We met up earlier in the day and found ourselves guffawing at our own synchronicity again (textured outerwear, monochrome, matching holographic nail polish and new fringes). We bounced around central for most of the day and inhaled bowls of Japanese ramen at Bone Daddies for lunch. We somehow even managed to find time to drop into the brand spanking new Warehouse on Oxford street, which piqued our interest in overalls to an all-time high. But as the night fell, we merrily skipped to Brixton where we danced and sang our asses off to Haim's thrilling performance.

Will Lammily usurp Barbie?
This week Nickolay Lamm raised enough money from his Kickstarter page to begin manufacturing and selling Lammily. In case you haven't heard of her, Lammily is a doll based on the proportions of an average 19 year old American girl and was designed to promote realistic beauty standards. Because, as her critics love to point out, were Barbie a real woman, her jumper-bumps would be so large and her feet so tiny, she would simply topple over. Well, realistic beauty standards are all well and good, but call us shallow (you won't be the first) is it really necessary that Lammily's wardrobe be imbued with the same spirit of "average"? As Barbie's wardrobe gets ever more exciting, it would have been nice to see Lammily in something a little less boring, after all, there's nothing wrong with a bit of aspiration.

Introducing our second example of the amazing street style from London Fashion Week -- enter Katie Bowkett! Student at London College of Fashion, with personality that twinkles and style never ending, Katie was one of our oh-so-kind navigators during our first fashion week experience, introduced to us thanks to our Übermentor Sasha Wilkins. We'd like to thank her again for her kindness and wish her lots of unicorn luck as she finishes embellishing pants (a.k.a. underwear for the Yankees out there) for what is going to be one SPECTACULAR menswear collection.
