I find most perfume tv commercials a bit boring, but really how do you get the spirit of a scent on TV? The new Chanel ‘Chance Eau Vive‘ campaign directed by Jean-Paul Goude  is so charming. It takes place in a Chanel styled bowling alley and all the models Cindy Bruna, Romy Schonberger, Rianne Van Rompaey and Sigrid Agren are in beautiful pastelContinue reading

I was delighted to attend the International Herald Tribune Heritage Luxury Gala that was held at the prestigious One Mayfair. The event celebrated 10 years of Heritage Luxury with IMG and all of London’s finest fashion crowd was there to celebrate. The event was two days of interviews and discussions with some of the worldsContinue reading

Caroline? Caroline who? I may hear you ask. Why she is my newest girl of the moment. We all know I’m a huge fan of Olivia Palermo but well, she hasn’t been seen since her London Fashion Week trip and well I need a new Girl Crush to take her place while she’s MIA. WhenContinue reading

During the past couple of years we’ve read about lots of luxury shops being victims of the smash-and-grab raiders – it almost felt like if your shop wasn’t a target you weren’t fashionable anymore. The Anya Hindmarch shop near Bond Street was been targeted several times, Watches of Switzerland, which sells Breitling, Cartier and FranckContinue reading

 Oh how I do adore Chanel; the quilted bags, the pearls, the perfume. Hell, I even love the carrier bags. I’m so excited to see the film, released today in cinemas nationwide. Coco Chanel is someone I greatly admire; she freed women from the constraints of corsets and allowed women to breathe in black. SheContinue reading

Karl Lagerfeld and Coco Chanel have designed some interesting costumes for ballet – Coco Chanel created the original costumes for George Balanchine’s 1929 Apollo (and had an affair with its composer, Igor Stravinsky). Karl Lagerfeld designed a tutu exclusively for British National Ballet’s revival of the Fokine solo number in The Dying Swan. Three womenContinue reading

I can’t wait to see Audrey Tautou in the movie Coco Before Chanel, directed by Anne Fontaine. It’s a biopic of celebrated fashion designer Coco Chanel, based on book by Edmonde Charles-Roux. You just know it’s going to be good! Selfridges window featuring Chanel!

I’ve always liked Lily Allen. I loved her style in the video Smile: a vintage prom dress, trainers and gold hoop earrings. It was such an original look that the high street chain New Look worked with Lily Allen to launch her first capsule clothing line Lily Loves Lily Allen for New Look. Smile wasContinue reading

Some things are not for everyone, but isn’t that what fashion is all about – personal style? Well, I love these Chanel shoes and yes if I had the chance I would wear them. They are sequine goatskin open-toed shoes with a light bulb as a heel that actually works! Over-the-knee statement boots. You’ll haveContinue reading

The beret has been around for ages and has generally been worn in the military since the mid-20th century. Although military is not a big trend this season I think the beret will be great for this Autumn/Winter 08! I love this Chanel beret; I tried it on and it’s so cute! If it’s aContinue reading

(Photo by Bauer-Griffin) I was a bit shocked to see Lily Allen as a blond but the more I look at her, the more I like it. I have never been a blond and with my olive skin tones I don’t think it’s for me. I’ve had all sorts of colours in my hair. WhenContinue reading

I love hotels. I know I mention this all the time but it’s only because it’s true. Hotel rooms are so tidy and I guess I just need to be free of my clutter and debris. I also like a hotel that gives you your own little coffee pot at breakfast (I drink tea inContinue reading

I contribute regularly to Celebrity Style – Lily Allen: I love that fame hasn’t changed Lily’s personal style: she’s just expanded her wardrobe and slimmed down from a size 12 to an 8. This Chanel dress is perfect for her shape and shows off her curves. The sequence detail on the rib cage creates aContinue reading

I used to live in Montreal and everyone there cycles. Except for winter, it’s the perfect city for cycling as there are lots of dedicated bike paths throughout central Montreal. I never had a bike this cool or this expensive (approximately £6200), but I love it! Chanel also includes in the collection – bejewelled bicycleContinue reading
