Olympic Metallics

Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…

All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.

While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.

And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…

Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

Chic This Week

Wonderful White

Photos from vogue.co.uk

Nothing looks as chic as white on the red carpet.

White is fresh, sophisticated and youthful. It looks amazing on any skin colour and body shape. When done correctly, white definitely makes a fashion statement!

In the last week, several highly fashionable ladies have worn white with effortless style and finesse. Choosing white dresses from some of my favourite designer houses – from Valentino to Dior and Pucci. I was especially thrilled to see Kate Bosworth wearing a look from Jil Sander’s S/S11 collection. The crisp white tee and long mint coloured skirt are so divine! Kate Bosworth’s red carpet style is beyond words! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
