Both shops will be dedicated to the beautiful classic Hermès scarf. Expert staff will be on hand to show you different ways to tie them. I cannot wait!
Best Dressed List – Keira Knightly in Chanel
As many of you may know Chanel is my absolute favourite. My fashion heaven. So whenever a celebrity steps out in Chanel it instantly captures my attention. Keira Knightley wore a stunning Chanel dress at the London premiere of Never Let Me Go.
A Chanel favourite, Knightley’s dress is from the Fall Couture 2010 collection. Covered in thousands of pearls, the neckline and sleeves are also draped perfectly with them. The striking cut-outs at the waist slim the figure and highlight the skin with subtle sophistication. A perfect score for Knightley and Chanel on this one!
