Gemma Arterton in What Katie Did

We were very excited to learn that our Harlow Bullet Bra would be featured in May's InStyle magazine, but when it came out a few weeks ago I couldn't see any sign of us! Yesterday I had an email from Fergus at Besame cosmetics (more news on Besame soon!) saying that we were in InStyle USA. Not only that Brit Bond girl Gemma Arterton is the model. Whilst this is good news it doesn't quite make up for the fact that the next Bond movie is on hold due to MGM's financial woes. Fingers crossed we'll see Daniel Craig back for his 3rd Bond adventure soon.

What Katie Did in Wonderland magazine

Whilst it would be nice to have a little break after the hustle and bustle of London Burlesque Week, things are still going crazy at What Katie Did: we've several developments in the pipeline for next month including a revamped search facility and checkout screen on our website and some new lingerie in early May with Besame cosmetics being added to our site in late May - plus the little matter of our head office relocation. In the meantime we've had some great press coverage in Wonderland magazine, including our cute little Deco waspie which hasn't made it in print until now!

What Katie Did in Paris Vogue

May's issue of Paris Vogue gets rather saucy, with an 'Erotica' shoot by Steven Klein. It features Lily Donaldson in lots of lingerie and nylons - including our Deco knickers (which are in good company amongst all the Dior, Chanel and Valentino!) The stockings featured are 100% nylon seamfree rht stockings - find similar ones here.

What Katie Did, pin ups and wine (what more could you want?)

It's not often you come across a swanky looking wine stall at a hotrod show (especially one where the wine is not supposed to be consumed there and then), but they tend to do things a little different in Vegas. We stumbled upon 'Sort This Out' cellars, a Californian winery which not only takes its' wine, but also it's bottle labels very seriously. We were delighted to see Jami Deadly decorating a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc in our pink Maitresse lingerie set (now discontinued, but is still available in black or white).

We like the way they talk too: 'Tired of the traditional wine country narrative, we wanted to move beyond the iconic family winery, or estate grown grape paradigms that have dominated the California wine landscape and instead make wines that looked more like the people who drank them. Inspired by an old picture of the Rat Pack outside The Sands hotel in 1961, we called upon the values of a time when men had character, and women had curves. A time when you could smoke, drink, curse, and have a good time without apology. We built our wines around this classic American adult spirit, so eroded by political correctness and fear, to create wines that were unapologetic in their character. Wines that pair with good times and friends. We make wines that are just as at home at the poker table as the dinner table.'

Miss Polly Rae and her Hurly Burly Girlies

Miss Polly Rae and her fabulous Hurly Burly Girlies added a little va va voom to London's West End with their new show, directed by William Baker, earlier this year. The show sold out for the whole of it's run with everyone from Kylie Minogue to our very own Tony Nylons attending - along with all the major press who gave the show rave reviews. Miss Polly Rae was kind enough to forward some pictures of the Hurly Burly Girlies in our Cabaret Sheer Morticia corsets (pics by Phil Bourne).

What Katie Did in Look magazine

This week's Look magazine features our Harlow Bullet Bra as part of an 'underwear as outerwear' shoot. Everyone seems to be going crazy for peach vintage style lingerie this season and our Harlow Bullet bra is flying off the shelves! The magazine also includes a cute picture of Dita Von Teese out and about at the Viva Las Vegas car show a couple of weeks ago - for those of you who couldn't see her through all the crowds!

Gywneth Paltrow in What Katie Did

Gwyneth Paltrow looks absolutely stunning in our Padded Bullet Bra and Maitresse Knickers in May's UK Vogue. The photography is by no less than Mario Testino and the interview was by one of my favourite journalists Christa D'Souza (we're on a big of a high here at WKD towers!)

Easter weekend saw our peach Ballet Knickers in the Sunday Times Style magazine as part of a colourful Spring feature.
