I love Katie Shillingford. She represents everything I love about living in London. I think it was when I saw images of her getting married in a bespoke, pale grey, gothic style Gareth Pugh gown, that the real love began. Google it. She is never afraid to try something whilst always looking SUPER chic and polished. Always wearing the key pieces (miu miu glasses, miu miu shoes, phillip lim bag) but always making them her own. Then there is her incredible hair. This season she started out in NY and London with green hair and by the time we got to Paris it was platinum blonde. Last season it was cotton candy pink.

Style.com asked me to shoot some of my favourite girls throughout the SS 12 fashion month in NY and Paris for the very first Style.com Magazine!
Here are a selection of lovelies that made the magazine. Katie Shillingford, who can do no wrong; the impeccably dressed model, Frida Gustavsson, who has the best vintage shopping tips for Paris and, the timeless beauty Inès de La Fressang,e in my favourite colour of the season.
I love how Marina Larroude styled the pages, and I love even more that one of my favourite Rue du Mail tops, made Katie’s ‘get the look’ page!
Here is my first written article published in Vogue! I was so happy when Vogue asked me to write about what it was like covering the Haute Couture shows in Paris. Basically, after a week of Couture, I have concluded that I want LOTS of beautiful new clothes and that every time I see Daphne Guinness I hold my breath in awe – look at this ‘liquid sky’ Gareth Pugh cape. I have made the text bigger below so you can read it, let me know what you think. x
Abbey Lee Kershaw, Paris Fashion Week, SS12
This outfit, like many of her outfits, could be SO WRONG… and yet on Abbey, they are BEYOND right. No other model, perhaps for say Hanne Gaby, has such amazing personal style.
I love how she rocks 90′s Glam, but always toughens it up with heavy jewellery, usually from one of my favourite jewellery labels Aussie duo ManiaMania, whom she did the campaign for.
I love love love her style.
