Oscars 2012 - Year of the sleeve

This year the red carpet was crammed full of cover ups. From capped to capes the world's most stylish senorita's brought back the sleeve.

Proving what I'd been presuming for a while; the arm is the new arse.

I can't escape the pleas from people requesting a bicep cover up. It comes from every fashion angle regardless of age, shape and size. I even had a girlfriend confess she constantly conceals them, which doesn't bode well for us mere mortals as she teaches yoga for a living!

However it has been hard to find fashion to fit the remit so I was chuffed to bits to see this year's Oscar clad lasses step out in some stylish sleeves.

Eye liner fetish

Adele's Vogue cover has me lusting after her lashings of liner.

I spent one hour last night trying to nail the creation while bambini wreaked havoc at my feet. Needless to say my offerings were not quite Vogue neat.
