Rihanna's collection for UK high street store River Island launched in the early hours of this morning, and as of lunchtime, plenty of the range is still available online. This either means River Island showed far more forethought than their rivals and ensured

After the success of my 'the week I let my boyfriend dress me' challenge back in January, we started discussing other ways we could humiliate various members of the team by getting their loved ones to choose their outfits. Luckily for us, Mother's Day gave us

I started off the week by presenting an award at the Rodial Beautiful Awards, which was hosted by Yasmin Mills and the amazing Julien MacDonald. Scary stuff when the room was filled to the brim with inspirational characters such as Elle Macpherson and Yasmin

Gemma Cartwright writes... March marks the beginning of what I hope is the first of many themed months for Catwalk Queen. Don't worry, we'll still be bringing you our usual mix of fashion news, celebrity style, runway reviews and much more besides, but on top

Ladies and gents, after five days, we've hit crisis point. It all started so well, but as I discovered today, the key to keeping my boyfriend interested in this whole challenge lies in not waking him up early in order to pick out the clothes. Letting my boyfriend

Another day, another chance for my boyfriend to prove that some of the fashion stuff I've rambled on about over the last three and a half years has rubbed off on him... And I have to say, this is my favourite day yet. He opted for red again (Jess will...

We're on to day three of the week I let my boyfriend dress me, and after yesterday's trainer debacle, I had my fingers crossed for a slightly more feminine footwear choice for day three. Luckily, the man did not disappoint, and put me in footwear that's pretty

We're on to day two of my latest wardrobe challenge, 'the week I let my boyfriend dress me'. I've stupidly handed over control of my wardrobe to my other half, and he'll be dressing me for seven days in an attempt to prove that even someone with no interest

When I decided to give up control of my wardrobe for one week and let my boyfriend choose my clothes, I wasn't sure what to expect. Friends and colleagues thought I was mad (especially the ones who know the man in question) and most seemed to think I'd end up...

Gemma Cartwright writes... There's no denying that in the fashion blogging world your best accessory is a style-savvy boyfriend with a camera. Think Garance Doré and Scott Schuman, or Susie Bubble and Steve Salter. Having someone with a love of style to snap

Gemma Cartwright writes... We're only a few weeks into the new year and I've already bought two vintage dresses, one vintage reproduction dress, two wrap dresses, a shift dress, a fascinator, a pair of high waisted trousers, four tops, a cardigan, a handbag, $

You know how they say everyone should have one little black dress? Well this weekend I took on the mammoth task of re-organising my wardrobes (I have three) and discovered that I don't own just one little black dress. I own about ten. In fact, I own about 100

By day three of Fashion Week, we were already tired, jaded and suffering from very sore feet. But the show(s) must go on, and this was a day that boasted some seriously big names; Marios Schwab, Christopher Kane, Luella and Jonathan Saunders to name but a few.

Gemma Cartwright writes... I promised myself that this season I would not fill my pre-London Fashion Week column with my usual rants about what I'm going to wear (I still have no idea, but I have wardrobes full of clothes so I'm sure I'll work something out).

Gemma Cartwright writes... My fat jeans fit me perfectly at the moment. Ok, they fall so low down my hips that I'm surprised nobody's made a quip about how my kidneys are going to fall out...but you're missing the point here. Fat jeans. Fitting me. These are t

Gemma Cartwright writes... I sometimes joke that we should set up a webcam in our office and livestream life at Shiny Towers to the masses. Mode or Runway this is not. We do have funky flock wallpaper, a fashion cupboard, couriers delivering exciting things at

Fashion is now as much about celebrities as the designers, if not more. We regularly pore over and dissect images of beautiful people of varying degrees of celebrity looking for fashion inspiration. Events like the Oscars are as much about the dresses as the
