Here's Marina and the Diamonds brand new video for her next single Oh No, it's a bit like Batman and Robin, popping candy, sherbet fizzers, wham bars n ring pops, it's lucky dip bags and bubble gum with rub on dolphin tattoos inside the wrapper. Directed by wunderkind Kinga Burza, styled by me and make up by my friend Hiromi Ueda.

Bare Bones is a free quarterly zine filled with general irreverance, taboo, boobies and blasphemy, it's independently published by the artists themselves which would explain some of the gloriously un-edited stuff you find in it. I have written before about BB and mentioned that if Bare Bones was a person it would be a criminal and in prison. Bare Bones Da however, Harry Malt commented on this saying it wouldn't be in prison cos it would have broken out. This is Harry below doing biniss on da phone

Whatever way you look at it Bare Bones is definitely electronically tagged and probably has an alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet like Lindsey Lohan and all the other fun people in Hollywood.

Which is good cos on the 29th of June Bare Bones is going to NYC and having a launch party at Envoy Enterprises Gallery, 131 Chrystie Street complete with a glass eating punk band to get everyone dancing in fear and joy.

So on the cusp of this great American introduction I interviewed the proud Bare Bones daddy Harry Malt here about his delinquent son......

Where did the name Bare Bones come from?

It came from the red wine fuelled brain of the wonderful bastard Neal Fox.
The type was forged by Luke Frost of Heretic Print Studio.
It is the perfect summation of what we do, we're stripped back, efficient, fast as fuck and enjoying it.

If Bare Bones was a person (dead or alive) who would they be?

BB is us.

Describe what Bare Bones stands for in 5 words?

Our Friends
Good times
Fuck You

If Bare Bones was to have a soundtrack to its life going from its

Any song by Crass getting it off the ground

Hello Old Friend, East Coast Novas.

3 producing the first issue

Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes, I Do, Captain Beefheart.

4. your first show

Pink Frost, The Chills.

5. its imminent arrival in NYC

Fuck You, Pay Me. ARE Weapons

If Bare Bones was on Death Row what would he/she (depending on above answer to question 2) what would the death row meal be? Starter, main course, desert and drink


Oysters & Champagne


Cheese & Crisp Sandwiches




Gallons of Sancerre will do.

If there was to be a Bare Bones celebratory dinner what special guests (dead or alive) would you invite and what band would you get to perform at the party?

For a nice quiet sit down it'd have to be;

Shane MacGowan
Jonny Ramone
GG Allin
The Rubbish Men
Jay Adams
Captain Beefheart
Sebastian Horsley
Stephanie Seymore
Alex Higgins
Lara Stone (not her husband)
Joan Jett



What artists would you like to have contribute to Bare Bones 4?

I'd like to see work from people from all over the world.
Unknowns, vagabonds, people doing their own thing.
For love n lust, y'know.

What are Bare Bones dreams for the future?

Just to keep on keeping on, maybe get a sponsor or some sympathetic rich old lady.

A permanent space to use for shows etc

Editions set up in different cities, all publishing on the same day, a global free press, a resource for art and artists for art sake.

Have fun.

If youre in NYC on the 29th June go to the opening it will be sexy mayhem and you'll get to meet all the funny attractive people involved, here's the invite above, click on it to make it big if you have bad eyesight and can't read it here....Check out the whole issue of BARE BONES 3 in motion on the website here


This is one of my assistants Cecilia, since we both have names beginning and ending with the letter C, she is known as little cc. She is also Irish and so she understands it when i pray to Saint Anthony to help me find things i've lost, why i put excessive amounts of kerrygold butter on everything and why i feel funny about putting a dunce cap on Jesus.

Little cc is quite the phenomenon, she's an awesome flower arranger, has the most impeccable taste, probably knows more about fashion than most editors and she just turned 18, so she's only a babby.

Her blog is beautiful check it out

She even gives cake recipes in here too. I sometimes feel like Little cc was a gift to me from the world when i needed her most. She walked into my garden quite early on and told me i needed to take better care of my plants, she gazed upon my bloomless camelia with a sad face like it were a featherless budgie in pet shop and said it wasn't flowering cos the pot was too small. Thanks world for sending me little cc, she is awesome.

My new website is live........


Vogue TV shot backstage at the recent Marina and The Diamonds video I styled for her new single OH NO. If this video was an Ice cream Sundae it would have strawberry cheesecake, lickitty lemon sorbet and blue raspberry ice-cream with sprinkles and cherries and bubblegum balls all over the top in one of those fancy expensive cornetto cones with chocolate on the inside. The video is not ready yet but you can see what went on behind the scenes here....

I just did the Preen Pre collection lookbook with Justin Thorton and Thea Bregazzi, they are gorgeous and i loved working with them. Their moodboard was all my favourite things including Linda Evangalista with short hair and the doe eyed, plump lipped Bardot as a side saddle riding cowgirl.

Justin took this picture of me putting looks together on Ellie the day before the shoot, i love this picture cos i look like a transformer. Here are some looks from their beautiful Pre S/S11 collection, you can see the whole collection here on...

..and so was Willis the French Bulldog (above) who was being babysat by the photographer Nick Dorey who is ace and takes beautiful pictures

Willis despite being a 'toydog' was super hardcore and a bit of a hooligan so i loved him. He can also talk and i mean when he was talking i was looking and him and i was thinking seriously this is not a dog, he's an alien, it was like in the excorcist when the little girl opens her mouth and the antichrists voice comes out.

F IS FOR......

....F Tape. They did an interview with me and some other stylists about what it is we actually do for a living, you can check it out here..

It's called 'The Rise of the Fashion Stylist', i like that, it makes me feel like a superhero, i'm presuming it's because i'm connecting that title with the movie 'The Rise of the Silver Surfer'. Oh and they asked me for a picture to go beside my answers and called it an avatar!! Anyway i was super chuffed to be asked by F-Tape to take part in this, they are on it with everything fashion and they're cool and the questions made me think about everything and what i do and why i do it and why i love it.

So the launch of Twin Issue 2 in La Grande Pomme went without a hitch or any further injury to myself, the drinks were strong and so were the women!

Twin Issue 2 NYC launch 8th June 2010

Hey Y'all, Twin is Coming to America like Prince Hakeem but to the Tribeca Grand Hotel in Manhattan not Queens. We're not looking for wives like him but if we were......

.... I feel Miss America would be absolutely perfect! She also sums up how we feel about it all. Look at that face, that flawless honeyed skin, whiter than white teeth, that blown out halo of fine blonde hair, eyelashes big as baby fingers and just enough tears to create that glassy look but not too much to run the mascara. What a pro.

So here we have in my opinion officially the Raddest tee shirt ever made, on the front is a hoe wielding skeleton organic farmer with a box of non genetically enhanced, misshapen tricolour veg. Beneath that buffering the sweet untempered wind is a KEEP IT GREEN banner. Talk about being ahead of the curve, go on the Grateful Dead. All set against a hippy trippy pachouli oil tye die backdrop. You almost think it just couldn't get any better and fucking does cos.........

...on the back is the world as a Turnip inside a skellington brain!
