Ms Mellon  worked at British Vogue for five years soon after dropping out of school. Ms Mellon said  : 'The original idea was for Jimmy to design the collection and I would run the operations of the business. 
'But it soon became very clear that Jimmy's skill was in making shoes. He’s a cobbler.' Sh e wrote a memior titled ' In my shoes"

"Today, armed with a wealth of business experience, she gearing up for the launch her own namesake label this fall.
The Tamara Mellon line will be carried online at and at stand-alone stores landing in New York, where she is based with her daughter 'Minty', in November and London by 2014.

Miley simulates sex in pornographic Terry Richardson shoot in an effort to swipe back at Sinead O'Connor. Oh Dear!

Miley Cyrus swipes back at Sinead OConnors plea not to let Music Industry ' make a prostitute of her" Miley responded on Twitter comparing Sinead to mentally ill Amada Bynes. Miley took it up a notch, paying no mind to  all the negative comments and attention drawn by her VMA's performance with Robin Thicke.  

Miley tweeted: 'Before Amanda Bynes… There was…' accompanied by a screengrab of what appears to be a fake Sinead Twitter account (handle: @vampyahslayah) which shows the singer asking for help.

The images are unashmedly pornographic in nature, showing the former child star in a series of overtly sexual poses, wearing next to  nothing.

"In a number of pictures, she wears a tiny leotard that barely covers the lower part of her body, featuring  a G-String in the back, and not much thicker strap in the front. In one shot, she leans against a wall with her hand while herself, in another , she pulls the front of the leotard so high that she exposes half her crotch".

How far is too far?
