The new bling

16/10/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

The look: Think Parisian socialite in a leather pencil skirt, and sky high YSL court platform heels. She's, busy, front-row and has a rugged edge that even Kate Moss would envy. How to get it: 'More is more is more,' your new mantra for S/S 09/10. The new bling is here; it's gritty, rugged and adds a certain grunge to a refined look. Choose matt silver, midnight black rhinestones, studs, crucifixes, leather and stock pile on your hands, or around your neck. More is more VS Less is more:

Galvatrons: Blast into the future

14/10/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

The Galvatrons are a modern day rock sensation. Keep the 80's hair, epic chords and synths, add a passion for transformers and you have 4 young lads tearing it up in 'double denim.' I catch up with Johnny Galvatron, vocalist, guitarist and ‘the attitude’ of the band, while he’s kicking back in Melbourne and preparing for a Triple M gig, later that evening. “It’s nice to be home. The past 12 months have been a bit of a blur, we’ve been touring for 2 years now.”

06/10/2009 by Natalie Tsirimokos

I have to perform 'You Don't Know Me’ with Ben Folds and I have to sing Regina Spektor’s part. Big shoes to fill.” Curioiser has shot to #2 on the ARIA charts, and #1 on the Itunes chart, but Kate’s attitude remains humble, while she speaks honestly about ‘Curioiuser’s ever increasing commercial support.
