The spirit of Miu Miu is captured by two young actresses, Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, who won the Palme d’Or award for the film Blue Is The Warmest Colour. Photos shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

We had not seen the Miu Miu advertising campaign when we purchased the bag. What struck us most when our eyes first met was the beautiful bright orange and turquoise blue multi-colour palette of the bag in cheerful summer colours. The Miu Miu biker bag was a refreshing update to the signature Miu Miu matelasse handbags with generous harlequin diamond quilting and multiple functional big zips holding secret compartments all over the bag.

The tarnished gold hardware also added an instant look of rugged glam to this unusually cool nappa biker bag. Say goodbye to boring Balenciaga motorcycle bags and hello to the Miu Miu biker this Summer!

H&M Conscious Collection 2014

H&M's eco-friendly conscious collection for 2014 is set to launch this April as the Swedish giant fashion house aims to take a hit at Spanish high street fashion label Zara.

Literally taking the bull by its horns, H&M's conscious collection highlights feature a white cropped cotton jacket with heavy embroidery and embellishments resembling a Spanish bullfighter's jacket.

As you can see above, our comparison of H&M and Zara is like a Mexican bullfighter (H&M) spearing the poor, tired bull of a Zara label who keeps churning out luxury runway knock-offs.

Either European high street fashion label looks desperate to expand their business in emerging economies in Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia with their cheap quality clothing.

It is increasingly rare to get a truly good bargain in terms of price, quality and design from H&M and Zara. 

We strongly advise all our little Unlikelies and readers to stick with us and follow our online media sites for more alternative fashion brands with either better quality, price or design from around the world.

Lady Gaga's New Music Video G.U.Y.

Our review of Lady Gaga's G.U.Y. music video

Lady Gaga tries to appeal to the mainstream audience while attempting to please her little monsters as she introduces Lego, cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, synchronized swimmers, video game designers, Jesus, God/ Zeus, Michael Jackson, Gandhi and Donatella Versace as herself (Lady Gaga with that platinum blonde wig) in her latest music video to promote her Artpop album.

There were plenty of fashion references and hot tips such as see-through PVC material corset bustiers, feather jackets, underwear as outerwear (girls, don't be shy to flaunt it or try it with a little layering), all-white dressing, metallics and gold hues for Spring Summer 2014.

Overall, we love Lady Gaga and her dancers because they're all hot and smexy looking in their slick dance moves sans the overt and overdone sex moves.

Rating: 7/10

Celebrity Fashion Fail: Lady Gaga Excluded

Celeb Fashion Fail No. 4: 
Shapeless Grandpa Coat - Uma Thurman

Uma looks great bottom down but not from up with a blue sea anemone infestation on her chest and all wrapped up in an unflattering wool grandpa coat which makes this slim actress look bloated.

Celeb Fashion Fail No. 3: 
You can Steal Cara's style but you're not Cara Delevingne - Michelle Rodriguez
35-year-old Too Fast Too Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez looks good for her age. However hanging out with "It-Girl" pal of the moment - 21-year-old supermodel Cara Delevingne does not mean she could turn back time 14 years or look a like a homeless hobo in a ratty grey sweater, polystyrene draw-string bag and beanie.

Celeb Fashion Fail No. 2: 
The hips don't lie - Iggy Azalea
Australian singer Iggy Azalea wears a bizarre bright yellow high-waist panty that not only emphasizes her wide hips but her Game of Thrones hairdo doesn't match with the punk rock look she's trying to achieve. Time to fire yet another stylist.

Celeb Fashion Fail No. 1:  
Walking DKNY Ad Campaign gone Wrong - Rita Ora
Who would have thought Rita Ora was the infamous Hamburglar by night. This Mac Donald's mascot-loving DKNY wearing singer paired her DKNY X Opening Ceremony outfit with black and white stripy stocking that would invoke jealousy from Ronal McDonald himself and Pipi Longstoking. Beware French style fashionistas and stripe lovers, you have been warned.

Fashion Lesson Learnt: Who says money can buy style? At least these McDonald's loving cosplayers know what they are doing.
