SPRING / SUMMER 2012 TREND : AMERICANA

It’s been five years since Mad Men hit our screens and now the vintage 50’s trend has finally hit the runway.  Americana is one of my favourite trends from Spring/ Summer 2012, keeping the 50’s style young and fresh.

From full skirts to cat eye sunglasses, it’s super-easy to incorporate the look into your wardrobe.  Pastel colours and cheeky prints (such as the Cadillacs above) can be worn on dresses or as separates on pencil or A line skirts and blouses.

TRAILER RELEASED FOR ‘PROMETHEUS’

Billed as a sort of ‘prequel’ to the Alien series, this Ridley Scott directed sic-fi blockbuster, starring Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Guy Pierce, Idris Elba and Noomi Rapace is due for release in UK cinemas in June 2012.

The discovery of a starmap sends a crew of explorers  skywards on a scientific expedition to discover the origins of mankind.  Naturally, they stumble upon an advanced civilisation of extra-terrestrial lifeforms.

It’s Ridley Scott, remember, so taking the trailer fullscreen is most definitely recommended.
