If you think about it, in a way, Catherine really didn’t have as much stress as a lot of other brides do (except for the fact that 2 billion eyes around the world would be watching!) I know it may sound silly but she didn’t need to worry about booking the church or what venue she was going to hold her reception! She had her pick of dress designers to choose from and even a top celebrity hair stylist available to make sure she her hair was perfect. And with all those camera’s shooting the big day, no need for her to book a wedding videographer either. So I guess I can understand why she had the extra time to take professional lessons from a makeup artist to do her own make up on the day.She wanted to do her own makeup because she wanted William to recognise her.
When makeup is professionally applied well it can still look natural. One of the advantages of a professional doing it would be more about lastibility, longevity for the day and that it will look good on HD. Still, a very unusual choice for a high profile figure as most celebrities these days call in a glam squad just to go out for dinner! But none the less, she looked radiant and most of all happy.

I’m feeling peachy-keen on Emma Stone’s look from the Golden Globe Awards ceremony. She’s s starring in the upcoming “Spider-Man 4″ film. The actress looked gorgeous in her Calvin Klein dress and coordinating peachy makeup. I’m a big fan of a tangerine toned blush and the wonders that it can do for a girl and Emma’s look is a shining example. I also adore the usually dark haired starlet with her new bleached blonde locks.

I styled Prophetik’s show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout this London Fashion Week. Every show you work on is different but this one is truly unique. Prophetik is all about sustainability, but not just in terms of fashion – it’s a way of life and how they treat their team. Jeff Garner and his team arrived from Tennessee and without a moment to spare we were doing fittings and castings and Jeff was also trying to organize all the production. He’s a perfectionist but trusts his team and knows how to delegate. It’s just true team work where everyone know what their doing and really respects and admires one another.
As you can see we had such fun models – this is backstage just before the show!
Elisalex de Castro Peake of Nina Dolcetti who designed the boots for our show is chatting on the grass catwalk with Jimmy Choo!
We actually had real grass on the catwalk that had a felt backing so heels don’t sink in or get stuck in the grass. After the show the grass is taken back to be replanted.

Kensington Palace is offering creative workshops and talks this summer. I’m giving a styling class on August 11th and part of the event includes entry to the Enchanted Palace Exhibition. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a wonderful exhibit!

Topshop recently opened in Knightsbridge, across from Harrods. I love the look and feel of the store – it’s 14,000 square feet – three floors of fashion with glass, stainless steel and black marble to give it a bright and luxurious feel.
It’s quite easy to navigate in the shop. It feels more grown-up than the Oxford Street flagship store (not necessarily better – just different). It’s got more of a boutique feel with attentive staff and the newly launched Topshop Make Up and all the designer diffusion lines right on the ground floor. You can’t help but notice the Mark Fast dresses on display and I couldn’t resist buying a Meadham Kirchhoff dress!
