Chic This Week
The Best Dressed Ladies Of The Week Are…
Kate Bosworth, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester & Kylie Minogue all stepped out looking stunning this week in some of my favourite designer looks from the Spring / Summer 11 & Autumn / Winter 10 collections!
The looks on the catwalk…
1>> Kate Bosworth looked divine in an Erdem Spring / Summer 2011 look. The white lace and red embroidered flowers are sophisticated, feminine and simply perfect!
2>> Meanwhile, Blake Lively was style personified in Versace. This Gossip Girl’s fashion style is continually evolving and I am loving her red carpet looks of late.
3>> While in Madrid for ‘Herbal Essences’; another Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester, wore a black dress from the Versus Autumn / Winter 2010 collection. A classic little black dress at it’s best!
4>> And finally, Kylie Minogue performed at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade wearing a look from the Chanel Fall 2010 collection. The tweed coat with faux fur trims looks delightfully warm yet oh-so chic!

Chanel Oh La La in today’s Espresso Shot Of News…
Chanel is my true fashion love. My crème de la crème. Anyone wearing or talking Chanel instantly captures my undivided attention.
Last weekend Chanel Fine Jewellery sponsored the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Arts gala. Kate Bosworth, Kirsten Dunst, Rachel Bilson and Ginnifer Goodwin all attended wearing Chanel. Kate Bosworth and Ginnifer Goodwin looked stunning in black gowns, while Rachel Bilson chose a look from the Cruise 2010 collection (also worn by Georgia Jagger in the ad campaign). Kirsten Dunst wore a white full length gown and striking red lips to ooze Old-Hollywood glamour.
Chanel Spring/Summer 2011
Decedent, intense and undeniably beautiful, the Chanel Spring / Summer 2011 was pure perfection collection. The collection took inspiration from the Last Year at Marienbad, a film from the early sixties in which Chanel herself originally designed the costumes for Delphine Seyrig (the leading lady). With an epic 87 looks, the runway show went for 18 minutes and was accompanied by the sound of a full orchestra of 80 musicians.
As for the clothes… well they were everything a Chanel dream is made of. Incredibly beautiful, exquisite detailing and heaven sent! This collection also had an unexpected cool – Chanel suits were expertly moth-eaten, denim was frayed, there were digital floral prints and feather embroidery.
It was pure luxury on the Chanel catwalk xx
Chanel handbags are my all time favourite! Here are a couple from the Spring / Summer collection… enjoy xx

Speaking of Hermès….
Kim and Khloe Kardashian have been spotted looking gorgeous in New York with their Hermès Birkins. Khloe is carrying a striking purple Hermès Birkin while Kim opted for the classic black. Do you think these are the Birkins Kim recently picked up at Hermès in Paris? If you believe the rumours, Kim reportedly bought six regular leather Birkins at around $10,000US each as well as another handbag in crocodile to the tune of $30,000US. Hermès Birkins are an investment after all!
