As carnival approaches, we thought Rihanna would be a fitting style icon. She was seen earlier this month in a carnival costume in Barbados and was spotted last month sporting a string vest as a beach dress. Yes Rihanna was wearing her string vest in the Miami heat, but here’s how to wear a string vest on the streets of Notting Hill (or wherever you choose to spend carnival weekend).

JC, Jesus, Hosanna, whatever you choose to call him, believe it or not the man is a style icon and has inspired many a fashion trend from Jesus boots to Jesus pieces. With Easter approaching we have chosen the best Jesus inspired items on the market.
Hosanna in the Hiace tee from Hairy Baby
Irish company Hairy Baby have been creating a stir with their jokey Irish tshirts for a while now, their range includes Fr Ted lines, things your mum might ask, and classic Irish sayings. Their Hosanna in the Hiace, tee reminds me of how my friends and I used to change the words of the hymns when we were super bored at school mass.
Tuxedo Jesus tee from Channel Shirt
So ridiculous, it’s hilarious! Available from Channel Shirt
Jesus Pieces Tee from Karmaloop
Jesus Piece from Good Wood
This post would not be complete without including at least one Jesus Piece. This one from US company Good Wood is their most intricately detailed inlay piece so far, and is streets ahead of some of the other over-embellished, slightly scary looking pieces available. Grab it at Good Wood’s site or on UK site Breezily.co.uk

Welcome to the first HDD Style Icon post, our first icon is Scratchy from the Rastamouse TV series. Unless you have been in hibernation for the last few weeks you will be familiar with the hit show. A lot of focus has been put on how great Rastamouse is, but what about female Easy Crew member Scratchy? To quote the official Rastamouse site she’s a roller-skatin, bass slappin, disc-scratchin, DJ mouse who’s feisty, fun and faithful. She’s all that and more, how could you not love Scratchy, she helps Rastamouse make bad tings good, and she’s got wicked steeze! Here’s how to get the look.
To get Scratchy’s style team a simple vest top like this one from Republic, with a fun animal print skirt . Scratchy’s style is feminine and fun as you can see by the pink bow she sports, grab similar pink bow over at Folksy.com or if you wanna go with something more subtle check out this white bow aliceband from Dorothy Perkins. To complete the look you need to get some skates like these black and pink retro ones. Dont worry if you cant brave being on 8 wheels like Scratchy, these pink Onitsuka Tiger high tops will give you the Scratchy steeze without having to risk grazing your knees!
