Reginald Heade - Vintage Paperback Cover Artist
Very little is known of Reginald Heade, Britain's most famous illustrator of "girlie" paperback covers of the 1940s and 50s - in fact he produced over 300 covers. He was born in 1901 in Essex and also published under the name Cy Webb. Reginald died in West Ham on the 14th October 1957 leaving no children or will. In 1954, he stopped signing his work when the publisher of his books went to jail on obscenity charges.

Best Dressed at the Oscars
Here are the dresses that stood out for me at this year's Oscars:
Lupin Nyong'o,yet again, looked stunning in a Calvin Klein dress made out of 600 pearls.
Margot Laurent had a touch of old-style Hollywood glamour with her blonde bob, red lips and black Saint Laurent dress.
Cate Blanchett looked stunning in a black lace Maison Marginal dress and turquoise necklace.
It can't be easy dressing for the Oscars when pregnant but Keira Knightley looks beautiful in this Valentino empire dress.
And Not So
Apparently Lady Gaga's outfit caused a few comments for all the wrong reasons. I'm sure she won't mind.
Bournemouth University Graduate Wins an Oscar
Very well done to Andrew Lockley, a graduate from Bournemouth Uni, who won an Oscar for Best Visual Effects for the film Interstellar.

I'm rather tempted to try Jo Malone's new limited edition cologne collection which is available from next week. The collection celebrates British history with fragrances such as Tudor Rose & Amber (Tudor Britain), Lily of the Valley & Ivy (Georgian), Geranium & Verbena (Edwardian), Pomegranate Noir (Victorian) and Birch & Black Pepper (Modern).

When looking at the gorgeous pinup and burlesque dancer, LouLou D'Vil, you would never guess that she is in fact from Finland. LouLou has travelled the world with her show headlining high end burlesque productions and in 2014, LouLou was voted "No 1 Burlesque Figure in the World 2013" and crowned Miss Exotic in 2013 in Las Vegas.
