Today’s Espresso Shot of News features three highly fashionable ladies all with the same (well practically the same) name – Katy, Katie & Kate…

Katy Perry’s Wedding Dress

On Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s big day, it has been confirmed that the bride wore a dove grey, lace sleeve, Elie Saab Haute Couture gown. The wedding gown is thought to be straight from the Elie Saab Autumn / Winter 2011 Runway (pictured above).

The hauntingly beautiful dress, with exquisite detailing, would have looked spectacular on Perry’s porcelain, fair skin. It was originally reported that in addition to Elie Saab, Perry would also have a rotating bridal wardrobe, including pieces from designers Zuhair Murad and Donna Mizani.

Longchamp & Love Celebrate
Katie Grand

Katie Grand’s fourth issue as editor-in-chief of LOVE magazine, was celebrated in the Longchamp boutique on New York’s Madison Ave. The eight striking covers, shot for LOVE’s ‘Gorgeous’ issue decorated the luxury store. In honour of Grand, Longchamp also created a limited edition ‘LOVE’ Le Pliage bag (pictured right).

Just a few of the highly fashionable guests included: Uma Thurman, Patricia Field, Alessandra Ambrosio, Theodora Richards, Missy Rayder and many more. The very stylish Olivia Palermo also made an appearance, wearing a too-cute Giambatista Valli shift dress (pictured right).

LOVE is a bi-annual fashion magazine launched by Grand. Grand has previously been named by The Daily Telegraph as ‘one of the most powerful stylists in the world’. She also lends her highly stylish eyes to the catwalks of Giles, Jonathan Saunders, Loewe, Louis Vuitton, Topshop Unique and Ungaro.

What are you doing this Saturday?
Fashion’s Finest Invite You To Buy Their Wardrobes…

This coming Saturday the 30th of October, I will be attending Buy My Wardrobe – a London fashion recycling event where fashion’s finest invite you to buy their wardrobes.

You will be able to purchase pieces from the wardrobes of stylists, designers and industry insiders, collectively known as the ‘wardrobe mistresses’ (pictured right). Each mistress will have her very own boutique-style space to display 50 to 100 pieces from their cupboards. Confirmed Wardrobe Mistresses include: Francesca Salih, Stylist for Net-a-Porter; Lou Hay, Designer at Matthew Willamson; and Sammi Brown, Great Grand-Daughter to the Marks & Spencer Empire.

Some of the treasures up for sale include: Jimmy Choos for just £120 and Louboutin pigalle shoes, originally £375 for just £150. You may also discover the Gucci shoes and limited Edition Burberry coat which are pictured right.

Kal Di Paola, Founder of Buy My Wardrobe, says of the event;
“This event is not just about offering remarkable savings of up to 70% on retail prices; it is also about creating a new way to bring environmental concerns – fast becoming part of every woman’s consciousness – into the regular shopping routine.”

The event starts at 1pm, on the 30th October at Adam Street Members Club, London, and entry costs £5. VIP tickets are also available for £20 which includes a champagne preview hour, starting at 12noon.
