RIP Gary Coleman

We just heard the sad news that former child star Gary Coleman has passed away after suffering from a brain hemorrhage. Rest in peace Gary xx

Getting Carrie'd away with a lush SATC2 cinema experience!

LADIES!!! Its the 28th of May! The wait is over and the day has arrived to slip on your stilettos, shimmy into your directional fashion pieces and sashay to a Sex and the City 2 screening. We all know SATC2 is an event (even though some menfolk might not) and there's no better way to get a fix from our fav New York gals than at the Everyman cinema. I first went to one last year and if you've never been you are missing out- they are gorge! With cosy love seats (not a flip up seat in sight) and table service galore(SATC diva's don't queue for drinks- natch!) these are without a doubt my fav cinema's.

And for the SATC2 season Everyman will be transforme-d into a sumptuous setting so us girls can catch up in style with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. There will be everything from high heels adorning the ceiling, stunning shoe displays, oversized golden cosmos, flower shows, photography exhibitions, towers of cocktail glasses filled with luminous concoctions, and of course a red carpet for us to strut up before we enter! Popcorn and coke is out because ladies, we can enjoy yummy bespoke cupcakes, from the renowned Primrose Hill Bakery and sip on champers and cosmos while we watch the film.

Personally I'm a bit of a Charlotte and when I heard that The London College of Fashion will create a SATC inspired photography exhibition at the Belsize Park Everyman throughout June- I nearly fell out of my Loubou's. And it gets better....LCF and Everyman are hosting a one-off event at that screen on Wednesday 2nd June, with a live art installation where hair and makeup stylists from LCF will be styling volunteers throughout the night!

The FBC missed the premiere (boo) but we are definitely going to the Everyman on the 2nd- that'll more than make up for it!

For more info on the event or to book tickets visit or call the box office on 0871 906 9060.

The Hampstead, Belsize Park, Islington, Baker Street, Oxted, Reigate, Walton and Winchester Everyman screens will be taking part in the SATC2 season.

Fiddy We MISS the Muscle

50 Cent has gone from wooooh.....

to nooooooooo!
He has dropped 54lbs for an upcoming movie role. Ok, give him his dues he's done the whole method acting malarky to a T....I'm talking Christian Bale levels- remember The Machinist? Clearly his acting career means a lot to him. Here's hoping he gets an Oscar. One word. DEDICATED.

Aqua London Store Launch!

Finally the gorgeous Aqua line has launched its very own store in London! The hip design house is made up of Ryan Holliday-Stevens, his business partner Julie and their muse Laura. The line hails from Leeds and has been a favourite of mine since I first spotted it on a few years ago.

I'm not alone in my amour for Aqua, the launch was packed with hip fashionista's, celebs(Paloma Faith- looked stunning as ever in her retro 40s pin up girl style) and paparazzi. Over cider in champagne glasses and mini fish and chips(yum)we caught up with Trinny and Susannah. The girls (who look gorge in the flesh) told us they have a new show starting in June called "What They Did Next" after which Susannah grabbed my boobs and said 'Brilliant dress and you have fab tits darling I absolutely love you!' love you too Susannah! The party vibe was buzzing with a slick house DJ at the decks, master mixologists at the bar and of course amazing Aqua pieces to get your mitts on! What more can a girl ask for?

Aqua's muse
When the FBC bumped into Laura (pictured wearing the nude and black dress)we were momentarily paralysed by her beauty. This girl is about 6ft tall and looks like Erin O'Connor! Ryan told us that he met Laura when she started working in their Leeds store 7 yrs ago, and she's been inspiring him ever since!

Julie's a Jewel!

Aqua's co-owner Julie was wearing one of their key creations "I absolutely love this dress" she told us. Agreed!

We spied this hot little reveller rocking a dress that we own! Love the drop front on this piece and the way she accessorized the dress with matching socks pushed the fash points! Aqua translates high end couture style with out the prices you pay in a Paris show room. They've become a firm fav with celebs like Frankie from The Saturdays and Alexandra Burke who've been seen wearing the designs in music video's and while they're out and about.

All the party goers perusing the rails were seen marching to the tills with more than one fab creation under their arms!

To get your hands on some of the beautiful, couture-esque Aqua designs head to the new store @12 Fouberts Place London W1F 7PG (Carnaby Street) or visit

Congratulations mama!

After weeks of speculation Alicia Keys camp has confirmed that she is with child! With master producer Swizz Beatz as the daddy this kid will have some crazy musical talent (matched only by a Beyonce/ Jay Z baby collabo- come on guys get baby making!) The pair are said to be getting married but no date has been confirmed. Hedging bets that it'll be post baby so Alicia can get back to her kapow body status.

Keys held her Black Tie Ball for Keep A Child Alive in London last night.

She rocked a fierce pair of Louboutins and a strapless petal mille feuille style dress in eggshell blue at the ball. Miss Keys is owning the yummy mummy tag!

Sarah Burton Heading McQueen

Sarah Burton has been unveiled as the new head designer for McQueen this morning. It was the natural choice after she spent 16 years working side by side with the late great Alexander. Good luck Sarah, can't wait to see her bring the drama that is McQueen to LFW this September! xx

The National Movie Awards

The A List came out in force for the 3rd annual National Movie Awards last night at Londons Royal Festival Hall. Despites its 2009 hiatus, the ceremony pulled in heavy hitters like Orlando Bloom, Tom Cruise and Gwyneth Paltrow. Mr Cruise ever the consumate movie star spent ages schmoosing on the red carpet, speaking to fans and taking pics. He even grabbed a journalists mobile phone to speak to her brother and congratulated him on becoming a father (Kristen Stewart et al take note- less sulking more schmoozing when you're on the red carpet!) And this was an awards ceremony truly for the fans. All winners were voted for by the viewing public. Its good for the industry to remember that fans sticking their bums in seats helps to turn films into box office smashes and actors into bone fide stars.

Speaking of stars, we spoke to several, including the gorgeous Dominic Cooper who told us that he was still living in bromance bliss with James Corden "I'm like the girl though- I do all the washing, and I'm always like- cup of tea dear? I draw the line at ironing his underpants though!" And James revealed that he was the next actor to get on the 3D trend with an upcoming role in The Three Muskeeters 3D movie.

We spied Flawless who were looking rather dapper in identical maroon suits "Next supplied us with our clothes today- we're lucky its a perk getting freebies!" When asked what they thought of this years BGT they confessed they hadn't been watching- tut tut! The boys who star in Street Dance 3D, promised that they wouldn't ditch the fancy footwork for the silver screen just yet "We'd love more movie roles but we would never stop dancing. Thats our first love."

Chipmunk, who performed at the ceremony, arrived weighed down by a major piece of bling around his neck and dressed head to toe in Moschino! With throngs of girls screaming his name he's clearly not short of female attention and the cheeky grin on his face whenever the fans called him definitely showed that he loves it- but is there a special lady in his life? "Not at the moment" he revealed. But would he date another celeb? "Not especially but if I did I'd keep it on the low like Jay Z and Beyonce. No one saw pictures of their wedding splashed across magazines!" Too true Chip Diddy!

Interesting-ly Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson both looked a little moody when they made their respective arrivals. The pair were hot and heavy a few years prior to Kate's marriage to Tom and Joshua's relationship with Diane Kruger. Perhaps it was a "crap I really don't want to run into my ex" moment...Although, perhaps Katie was a bit miffed that she'd picked out such a drab dress to wear. Katie you are too young and too cute to wear something this dull. Think you need to call your old BFF Victoria Beckham and get a few fashion tips!

Winners on the night included: Action/Thriller - Sherlock Holmes
Family - Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Fantasy - The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Most Anticipated Movie of the summer - The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Breakthrough Movie - The Time Travellers Wife
Performance of the Year Male/Female - Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga New Moon)
Special recognition award - Harry Potter
Screen Icon - Tom Cruise

National Movie Awards- The Fashion Story

Last night Londons South Bank was swarmed by the glitteratti as they headed to the Royal Festival Hall for the NMA's! Here's a run down of the FBCs best dressed folks!

The Real Good

Gwyneth Paltrow gets in touch with her girly side in this pink peplum dress. Gwyns pins looked amazing from the FBCs perspective...we need to get some yoga tips from her asap!

The Sexy

Sacha Chang star of Street Dance 3D wowed in a one off find from a Carnaby Street boutique. Loved this girls diva swagger. Big hair and bootilicious...British Beyonce anyone?!

The Sweet

Konnie Huq looked sweet in a choclotae brown maxi, effortless, understated and so on trend.

The Fashionista's

Ophelia Lovibond and Shanika Warren-Markland from sashayed down the red carpet with Shanika letting her legs do the talking in Jasper Garvida and Ophelia revealing her inner retro diva with a vintage inspired gown from Tibi. They told us that their lovely co-star Tamsin Egerton was unwell so couldn't make the ceremony.

Michelle Ryan channelled prim and proper glamour in an over the knee gold jacquard number. She was pretty tight lipped on the night...perhaps she didn't want to speak about her return to Eastenders following her triumphant time in LaLa Land. After all Miss Ryan not long ago said she'd never return to the Square....

And The Real Bad

Clearly this young lady got the memo that denim was big this season so kudos for trying. However, looking like a denim factory threw up on you a few times thus creating this denim vomit nightmare is not the way to do it love!

Everybody Wants to be in Love- Sweet Tooth

Everybody Wants To Be In Love - Sweet Tooth from SweetToothMusic on Vimeo.

Beautiful melodious, jazz-esque song. Lead singer Fleurtini has damn hot vocals, real dusky dulcet sexy tones(think modern day Ella Fitzgerald). Listening to this I feel like a femme fatale in a black and white movie, wearing red stiletto's(the only colour in the film), stockings and suspenders, gun in the belt, waiting for my man to come home (he's just popped out to commit a felony).
The video is damn brilliant to, a very artistic offering from a genius collaboration between David Packer (director) and Aaron Bevan-Bailey (superstar illustrator).

Pete is so sweet!

We bumped into Peter Andre whilst out and about at Thorpe Park last weekend and the encounter was more thrilling than the ride Collosus. He performed a quick set (he's good live), jumped off stage and told the FBC-whilst holding our hands- that he had spotted us while he was singing(yay) and thought we were beautiful(swoon). As we lay in the recovery position following a brief fainting spell, Pete said he was doing great post Kate, looking forward to having fun this summer with his kids AND that he was still single (yippee). He then kissed us(faint)and went on his merry way.

Ethical & Gingerlicious

If you are like me you want to do your bit to be green but a lust for hairspray and a penchant for leaving phone chargers plugged in kinda gets in the way(sorry Earth). Well now you can get ethical in the shower with some scrummy ginger body scrub from Andrea Garland. Not only does it leave your skin silky smooth and smelling gingerlicious, Andrea Garlands goodies are kind to the earth and use organic, all natural ingredients in their products. That means less nasties on your skin and less nasties for the Planet. Who knew saving the Earth smelt so good.

Available from for 15 smackers!

Camilla Belle Crush

The FBC has a secret.......we heart Camilla Belle! Never before have we had such a fully blown style crush on one woman. The 23 year old has been acting for over 17 years (probably appeared as a cute gap toothed kid in a cereal commercial), has starred in a clutch of decent cinema, is originally from Brazil (Camilla você é linda!), started dating a Jonas brother after appearing in one of their music videos in 2008(boo) broke up with a Jonas brother in 2009(yay)and went on to became one of the most red carpet ready ingénues of 2010!

She has had an exquisitely fashionable five months which are documented in the pics above!

In January she was papped looking all kinds of fabulous and ahead of the fashion pack in a chinoiserie Armani number fresh from the runways, in Feburary she melted ice in a hot pink piece of Marchesa, March saw more Marchesa at an Oscars party and Camilla proved that you could do white and ruffles and off the shoulder all at once- this was so sexy 80s baby, come April she showed fashion acolytes how to rock romantic in a floaty YSL fantasy at the Met Opera. But NOTHING compared to the heat she brought at the Met Costume Institute Gala this month. Six words. Traffic. Stopping. Red. Jason. Wu. Dream.

2011 is set so see the release of her next major movie From Prada to Nada. We think the title should be From Prada to Gucci to Armani She Does It All So Well.
Camilla you are the Belle of every ball.

Maradona Strikes Again

Oh I love Maradona! Never has a more gaff prone footballing legend existed (he is to football what Prince Phillip is to the royals- media gold, establishment gaff bringer). After mowing down a camera man with his Mini he apparently yelled "What an asshole you are, how can you put your foot under the wheel, man?"
Ermm, I don't think the cameraman was angling for a mangled leg suffered at the 'hand of god' when he ended up as Diego's roadkill. The injured fella was last seen being carted off in an ambulance, away from the ranting Maradona, muttering that life as an accountant was now suddenly 100xs more attractive than filming the glitterati....

Uh oh Li Lo!

Li Lo was a no show for a probation hearing in LA today. The poor little (t)It girl is stuck in Cannes due to a stolen passport and now a judge has issued a warrant for her arrest and set bail at a hefty $100,000. And instead of running to the US consulate begging for a new passport, rumours are circulating that she's chasing Amanda Seyfrieds man Dominic Cooper- steady on love did you not see Mandy in Jennifers Body? The girl has some scary psycho kick ass moves.
You've gotta ask what the hell is Miss Lohan doing in Cannes? Does she have a movie to promote....[tumbleweed moment]...Lindsay claims she'll be playing former porn queen Linda Lovelace (star of Deep Throat) in an upcoming biopic, the production company repeatedly state she won't be.
Seriously Linds, leave the boys (and girls)alone, go home, stop drinking and start praying for a career comeback and a lenient judge at your next hearing.

Hot Little Boutique

Strutting around the high street picking out the latest trends is like breathing for any good fashionista. But if you’re like me, sometimes you want to head off the beaten track and find a hidden, hot little boutique (HLB). At your very own HLB you can pick up cute buy's away from prying eye's, its your very own fashionable little secret.
My HLB is Body Basics. It’s tucked away between a cheese shop and Boots in Liverpool Street, London. I absolutely LOVE this place. I've been going there for years and anytime I wear one of the items I've picked up I get a lot of "Where did you buy that!?" Normally I mumble/ lie (I don’t want anyone else to be in the know) but I've changed my ways and decided to share.

Body Basics is like an Aladdin’s cave; its small but jam packed with cute one off dresses, bodies and cardigans as well as stacks of jewellery and swimwear.
The staff are all incredibly sweet (I practically feel like an honorary staff member due to all the time I spend in there), the return policy does not lock you in (you can get a refund here not like other boutiques where the return policy holds your money ransom) and there is practically something new in everyday- there are tons of different clothing lines stocked in store. And the prices start from £16 upto the £100's so there is something to suit everyones pocket.
Speaking to the girls at Body Basics today, I discovered that a member of staff is a designer who has her clothes stocked in-house. Lucy, pictured above with one of her pieces, is the store owner’s daughter and her label neverfullydressed is to die for. Often consisting of tops and dresses characterised by little pearls round the cuffs, they have a sense of romance and fit like a dream(the shot at the top shows Lucy's designs on a stall @Spitalfields Market).

So there you have it, my very own little boutique secret xx

Visit to see Lucy's full range or visit Body Basics in Liverpool Street

Damn he can handle a gun

Forget the war stories and SAS conspiracies: the best thing about Sky One's Strike Back is Richard Armitage. Not only is he ridiculously hot as Porter in the show but he knows how to handle a gun AND takes his top off at crucial moments during the twice weekly eps (i.e. just when you're about to fall asleep due to the heavy dialogue) gotta love man candy

Twinkle Toes

First Jennifer Love Hewitt exposed her bedazzled vajay-jay to the world (not literally- that would be illegal and disturbing)and now the trend has moved further down south- we can get our toes blessed with a little bling as well as our lady gardens. Nails Inc in South Molten St and Harvey Nicks are giving diamante pedi's with swarovski crystals...The whole shebang costs around £100 and lasts up to four weeks.
Its a bit different but not half as weird as some of the pedi's out there. Remember the Japanese fish pedi made famous by Samantha a la Sex and the City? Little aquatic nibblers dine on your feet to keep them silky smooth. Hmmm, I reckon bling is the cuter solution to tantalizing toes!
And as the weather man keeps promising that the sun will be in full affect by Friday the FBC is getting it done...

Shoe-gasm of the month

These nude chiffon stunners left me panting for breath this morning like no man can. Not because of the £615 price tag but because they are GAWJUS! In the words of Carrie Bradshaw "Hello Lover" is the only thing you can utter before slipping into a state of ecstasy as your feet slide into these babies from Fendi. Definitive yes yes oh yes moment this May...

Tom Kaulitz gets viagra vision

Tom Kaulitz, guitarist for Tokio Hotel had to pay a visit to the doctor after taking viagra. Before you ask it wasn't sex strain that had this mini rock rebel visiting the medics, the 22 yr old suffered from blurred vision and a two day erection after popping a double dose of the little blue helpers while he was on tour with his band. This brings a whole new spin to the saying playing with it makes you go blind. Seriously- he is a 22 and a rockstar. Surely the last man on earth who needs help getting jiggy?! Its a case of celebrity excess gone mad!

Fragile Beauty- Noemi Lenoir's suicide attempt

It was incredibly shocking news that the gorgeous supermodel we see prancing around in her lingerie in the M&S adverts attempted to kill herself this week. Found unconscious in a forest pathway in her native Paris emaciated, covered in dirt and bruises the mother of one couldn't have appeared further from the smiling supermodel who graces billboards all over the world. How did a woman who appears to have everything to live for want to end it all? The model is said have been left devastated by the sexual scandals that plagued her life over the last few years. Not only was her marriage to international footballer Claude Makele dogged by rumours of his infidelity (he cheated on her with a page three model while she was pregnant), but her latest beau- millionaires son Carl Hirschmann (seen DJ'ing in the pic above) was attached to a string of allegations which cited that he not only forced several women to give him oral sex but also slept with a minor.

As a woman who can be very assured of her beauty and prowess having also modelled for designers like Gucci and Victoria's Secret in the U.S, being voted one of the sexiest women in the world by magazines- Lenoir still needed to feel stability in her love life. Its sad that these men have left her with such a gapping sense of fragility, clearly neither deserve her. Now as Noemi gets better the question is will she be strong enough to stay away from these toxic men?
