YSL, of course, says the choreography is simply meant to seduce the viewer and showcase the perfume's intense nature. Maybe I'm blind, but the most objectionable thing I see in this commercial is some major sexyface. Plus, if they think that the motion from the video is really what injecting drugs looks like, I think maybe it's time for a private screening of either Trainspotting or Requiem For a Dream. Should this ad have been banned? Check out the commercial (no sound needed) after the jump.

Most of you loved Kate Moss and Lea T's shared cover for Love Magazine, but now it's time to take a look at their solo efforts. Both models have posed alone for the publication sporting very different looks. There is also a Justin Bieber cover of the magazine which hits newsstands on Monday. Which cover will you be picking up?
The British Fashion Council and Vogue hosted a cocktail reception last night to celebrate the nominees and the winner of the 2011 fashion fund. Christopher Kane was awarded the prize (with a David Downton illustration). He was joined at the party by nominees Charlotte Olympia, E. Tautz, Jonathan Saunders, Nicholas Kirkwood, Osman Yousefzada, Peter Pilotto and Richard Nicoll. The event was supported by Harold Tilman, Alexandra Shulman, Samantha Cameron, Christopher Bailey and socialites Daisy Lowe and Laura Bailey. Click through to see photos from the party.
Last night, I headed to the V&A Museum to watch the London College of Fashion MA show. The college always has a high calibre of graduates, and this year was no exception. One thing which struck me, was how many students opted for menswear this year. 2011 is already hotting up to be a great year for menswear as more focus is placed upon it (not least because of the launch of Mr Porter), so maybe students realise there is a lot of potential in designing for guys. Indeed, the collection of the year was awarded to Matteo Molinari whose tailored menswear came with a twist. His slim fit trousers had a dramatic high waist and there were androgynous elements.
Other highlights included Susanna Bettencourt's chain embellished, '90s inspired body con dresses and Nam Young Kim's sculptural jackets and midi skirts. Oliver Ruuger's accessories stole the show as the umbrella was given a fetish makeover. The colour palette for the whole show was predominantly dark or neutral.

Vivienne Westwood has been turning her hand to a charitable cause for Comic Relief this year as she creates a range of t-shirts. The printed tops feature British historic icons including William Shakespeare, characters from Blackadder and a punk. The pieces are available online or at a TK Maxx store from £9.99. A large percentage of the sales goes directly to Comic Relief. Click through to see celebrities modelling the new designs.
I'm a fan of Jourdan Dunn so it's great to see that having a baby hasn't brought her career to a halt. She starred in a couple of catwalk shows last year, and now she has landed the Burberry campaign. The British heritage brand promised to unveil new images each month as part of it's "evolving campaign", and the setting is once again Brighton beach. Jourdan stars alongside Sacha M'Baye in the images which were taken by Mario Testino and showcase cool leather pieces from the Spring collection. Do you like this campaign?
