I know it’s been quite some time since I last posted. I’ve been absolutely amazed by the sheer number of readers of the blog and have appreciated everyone’s support. For me though I feel a change is needed. I am not sure what direction I will go with StyleSavage but I hope that you will all continue with me. The new StyleSavage may be up and running in a few weeks or a month, but if you’ve been crafty enough to subscribe to the blog then you won’t miss out. Your patience will be rewarded!
I wish you all a brilliant start to 2009! xxxx

For half this weekend my head has been immersed in my latest photography book – Peter Beard.
If you are not familiar with the name, undoubtedly you’ll be familiar with his work.
Handsome American lad from wealthy and prestigious background journeys to Kenya and falls in love with the land. The Wildlife. The people. Beard documented his life in Africa in his photographs and diaries. Moving in glamorous circles it wasn’t long before his diaries were noticed and he was brought to the attention of Vogue magazine and began to do fashion shoots with Verushka stretched out in front of rhinos.
Beard ‘s diaries also include candid photos of his friends, who just happened to be Francis Bacon, Salvador Dali, Jackie Onassis, Andy Warhol and the Jaggers amongst others. Beard was obsessive about documenting everything he came across and placed them in his collages, ripping out newspaper clippings, snakeskins and even staining them with Ava Gardner’s blood (at his home she cut herself on a wineglass and he rushed to capture her blood on one of his diaries).
It is impossible to appreciate his work from a far. Grab one of his books and be transported.

The gorgeous model Chanel Iman appeared at last night’s CDFA event dressed to thrill, channelling the Bianca Jagger look like no-one’s business.

There is a voyeuristic gene within us all, and since I’m in the process of re-decorating my place, I’ve found myself drawn to people’s interiors for inspiration. Two websites allow me to indulge my curiosity more than others. There is firstly the fabulous theSelby, which delves into the homes of impossibly rich, young creatives with their chaotic interiors and quirky accessories.
And I’ve just recently discovered The Style-Files which concentrates on chic interior and designs by Europeans (in particular Scandanavian and Dutch).
