Dita Von Teese has designed a special eye mask for Moschino. The burlesque dancer – famed for her unique vintage-inspired style – created the eyewear, as well as a host of other items, in association with AIDS research group amfAR.

NOTED beach babe Megan Gale is launching a new career as a swimwear designer. Gale has joined forces with Anthony Halas, the CEO of Seafolly, to create her sexy Isola swimsuit collection. The David Jones beauty told Who magazine the range, named after an Italian island, will hit stores in July.

I put my heart and soul into it and when it comes out I hope it will speak for itself.”
The young British star has been nominated in the Best Actress category at the Academy Awards for her role in ‘An Education’. With her kooky style, it won’t be long before she makes best-dressed lists, too.
She may have been nominated for Best Actress at this year’s Oscars ceremony for her breakthrough role in An Education, but off-screen, Carey Mulligan has also been garnering rave reviews for her gorgeous, quirky looks and inspired red-carpet choices.
The 24-year-old British actress can do floor-hitting, traffic-stopping gowns – in vampish red Lanvin at the SAG Awards, and strapless midnight-blue Nina Ricci at the Globes, for instance – like the best of them, but excels when she plays up her image of the ingénue. Coquettish LBDs and sweet, long-sleeved dresses with a Sixties’ vibe pay homage to Audrey Hepburn, an actress to whom Mulligan has often been compared. Nor does she shy away from prints or embellishment, either, stepping out in a bold pink, red and turquoise graphic florals minidress, and a silver “fractured mirror” frock by Prada.
