I am so excited to tell you that Rimmel London has revealed a new partnership with Fashion Illustrator Hayden Williams. I am a huge fan of Haydens and if you follow him on social media believe me you’ll see why!

I absolutely love that Rimmel actually discovered him via his impressive Instagram portfolio. It just shows that social media works and if you’re talented it is now another way into your dream industry.

They will be working together on Kate’s very first eye Collection, Idol Eyes and we can’t wait to see the finished product.

For those of you who have never heard of Hayden Williams, he is a 22 year old fashion designer and illustrator from London who has been drawing since the age of 3. Inspired by women, fashion and his childhood, his illustrations all have his signature style with a cartoon feel. I don’t know about you but I love them and can’t wait to see the new collection!


Kate Moss says “I am so excited to be collaborating with Hayden on my first eye collection. I love his drawings and it was great fun to work with someone who could so perfectly bring our looks and ideas to life on paper”.


On his new partnership with Rimmel, Hayden comments: “As a British fashion illustrator and designer, I am very proud to be collaborating with Rimmel London and Kate Moss for the launch of her new Idol Eyes collection. It is a definite highlight in my growing career, to be asked to work so closely alongside such an established cosmetics brand and iconic supermodel. It is a huge achievement and i look forward to sharing all of the visual content that i have created for this project with my fans and also with the Rimmel customers.”

I absolutely love Coast and when I saw this dress I knew it was perfect. I also wore it for a fashion show so have had my eye on it for a while. Its €120 and in stores now.

I love the little cardigan in navy and they also have it in black. Its great for the summer months and has a beautiful sheer back making it great for dressing up or down.

The headpiece is William Chambers for Coast. Its €55 which I think is very well priced for a designer headpiece. It was incredibly comfortable to wear and for a summers evening I didn’t want to be too OTT so I felt it was nice and delicate.

I wore my new nude suede shoes from Karen Millen and when I was presenting the prizes I sunk into the grass making the heels mucky and did I spray them with protector?? Of course not! Any tips on cleaning suede is much appreciated???


Coast - Floret €120



Coast - WILLIAM CHAMBERS Pink Bow €55










I’ll have more racewear looks every Friday so see you next week,

Hi everyone,

I was very excited when Xpose magazine rang to ask me to do Closet Encounters. I’m a bit of a stickler when it comes to brands as you can see and I’m always a fan of wearing what suits you. Throughout the years as a model I have tried to be on trend and failed miserably as some trends simply did not suit me. Instead i now try to wear clothes that suit my figure and that I feel comfortable in. Most Karen Millen dresses fit my figure perfectly and I feel very at home in their clothes. I’m also a big fan of River Island (especially their jeans) and one of my favourite shops is still Penneys where I just bought all new workout gear.

I hope you like the article below. Don’t forget you can follow me on twitter https://twitter.com/alicanavan  and Facebook www.facebook.com/alisoncanavanofficial for all my latest news.
