Erm... I love this

Some people have been saying that the dress Fearne Cotton is wearing here, at the launch of her latest collection for Very isn't her usual style, but I disagree. I know I go on about how much I love the 60s but this ensemble channels that era perfectly. The bouncy bob (I am seriously contemplating growing my hair back into this style again) and sweetly demure dress with spurts of pink and peach is so well suited to Fearne's tiny frame and it seems to work with the tattoos she is so well known for. And I agree with Holly, Fearne looked as equally incredible in that monochrome swimming costume and her hair looked rather stunningly sleek and perfected on Comic Relief.

For those of you who don't know, the Holly I am referring to is Holly Willoughby (a.k.a. Holly Willouboobie!), a very successful television presenter in England, very good friend of Fearne's and also the creator of her own range of clothing for Very. She is genuinely lovely and if you haven't already, watch the latest episode of the programme in which they are both team captains here for it's sheer stupidity and vulgarity. Plus it's very, very funny.

Let me know what you think. What are your thoughts on Fearne's outfit?

Style Icon

What a stunning beauty she has. And I have to say, I think this might be one of my favourite outfits of the year so far, worn at the Louis Vuitton party in honour of their latest muse, Sam Taylor-Wood. As you know, I love Thandie enough already and this outfit simply looks amazing on her. She's so lucky to have that subtle golden sheen all year round- I cannot wait to get a tan. I love everything about this look- the natural make-up, up-do and brightly patterned LV dress showing just enough skin- plus the shoes are incredible. It is the perfect look- demure and sophisticated yet sexy with the thigh-high slit and high heel. Oh, I could ramble on forever about Thandie as she is just beautiful. And effortlessly so.

Who are you so in love with right now?

Fruits of my Labour

I have been working really hard on my FMP lately and thought I deserved a little online shop (plus I was rather pleasantly surprised when I looked on my bank statement!). It has been taking up all my time and is the reason why there has been a complete lack of posts recently. I was skimming through ASOS, looking for a great top to go with the palazzo trousers I have just purchased and discovered this gem. It reminds me so much of the amazing citrus print Stella McCartney dress I loved so much when it caught my eye as I was flicking through the glossies. Mmm, I really fancy an orange now...

Gwen, you beauty.

When I peeled away the plastic from my ELLE today I literally shouted with joy. Wow, the cover is an amazing one. Even though a certain free newspaper ruined the surprise on my way up to London this morning, the collectibles cover is so much better. It is bold, blocked, bright just like the Spring/Summer catwalks and channels 1970s glamour with the clashing of the deep red shoes against the jade blue background. It's much better to see someone on the cover who is linked to the fashion industry (even remotely), rather than someone like Cheryl Cole. ELLE has always been my favourite and it is their covers that is just one of the reasons why I love it so much after all these years...
