Blame it on my recent wedding, although I am still having a love affair with all things white. So when Rachel, the fashion editor of Madison Magazine, asked me what I would like to wear for this shoot, I said “put down that orange bejeweled Prada suit, I want to wear white!” I love this Carl Kapp pant suit (so much so, I have worn it before for another shoot) a la Bianca Jagger in an Yves Saint Laurent pant suit circa late 70′s.read more

This season, New York Fashion Week was possibly the coldest yet. I know I have said it before, although it was seriously freezing.
Within 36 hours, I flew from sunny Australia to London, to basically drop my bikinis and sun dresses and replace the space with anything that looked warm, then headed back to the airport onwards to NY to arrive in a blizzard. SO I went from hot summer swims to NYC’s Super snow storm ‘Nemo’ … The first day I wore 6 pairs of Uniqlo heat tech layers and… I may have cried. When it is THAT cold, I always think the best way to hide the fact that you are wearing 18 layers of clothing and near freezing to death is with a fun pop of colour!This Hockley London snood and mittens are my favourite thing I’ve worn this season.read more
It’s as if she went into her dad’s closet and pulled out his much loved trench coat, picked up her boyfriend’s Guns n’ Roses T shirt off the floor and then put on her favourite vintage hat, on the way out the door.
I’m really in love with wearing mens clothes at the moment ( I blame you Phoebe Philo!). This morning I threw on my husbands coat to run to the shops to buy coffee and there was something so romantic about being engulfed in a big warm coat whilst still wearing my skinny jeans and brogues.
Here are some more of my favourites from London Fashion week.

When my husband asked me to marry him during a sunrise swim, I was so shocked I pushed him into the ocean (which seemed to amuse Style.com’s Tim Blanks). When Alberta Ferretti told me just a week later (whilst I was in Milan walking in her Demi Couture show) that she’d love to design my wedding dress, I fell off my chair and started crying. So you can only imagine what happened when Vogue US writer Kiki Georgiou told me that they wanted to cover the journey with me… You may say the whole experience was somewhat of a dream.read more
I’ve just arrived in London for Fashion Week. I know dear blog gods, I have been bad… very, very bad… although I just got married, so please forgive me!
New York Fashion Week was a whirlwind of shows in between blizzards in below freezing temperatures with lots of snow! Although, you know what I love about New York City girls, despite all this, they really know how to have fun. Insert Lily Kwong and Preetma Singh, two of my favourite NY girls.
