Absolutely Nothing To Talk About : Helen Seamons, Observer Fashion

Helen Seamons is Deputy Fashion Editor on The Observer and one of the most stylish ladies we know. Here she shares some of her top tips and brilliant ideas about all kinds of Absolutely Nothing….

Absolutely Nothing To Wear….

I love Zara, their website looks brilliant and the advertising seduces me ever time. I find it hard to leave the store without buying something. I really want this coat (see pic) and just brought a fab faux pony skin leopard bag (pictured). I will definitely head there pre fashion week to ease my “what to wear to shows” panic.

I also love Theory for trousers, they fit curves well.

Absolutely Nothing To Listen To….

The radio, my iPod is completely empty. (I know that’s really weird)

Absolutely Nothing To Do….

Go to Harrods and ogle at ‘Coco in Wonderland’ It promises to be ‘une promenade’ through the world of Chanel and if it’s anything like the spectacles that Karl puts on in Paris it will be well worth a visit.


Absolutely Nothing To Eat or Cook….

Welsh cakes! I just visited Barry Island, home to Gavin and Stacey and now all I can think about is Welsh cakes, they are delicious with a cup of tea. Luckily good old M&S stock them so this fix can continue.

Absolutely Nothing To Buy….

I’m dreaming about buying Miu Miu’s glitter shoes

Absolutely Nothing To See….

I can’t wait to go and see Corinne Day: The Face exhibition at Gimpel Fils gallery, we just covered it for the magazine and I’m desperate to get down and see it in person.

I also loved the Hungarian Photography of the 20th Century exhibition at Royal Academy, it’s beautiful and very inspiring. Robert Capa’s war photographs were the most thought-provoking.

Absolutely Nothing To Read….

Twitter, I’m a borderline addict.
