It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend in London and I plan to drink lots of Pimms!
We got into the spirit with a shoot marking all things British!

My best friend and my boyfriend somehow managed to organise the entire party from LA and London respectively. Somehow they pulled it off and kept it a surprise.
All I was told was that on December 22, I should wear a Great Gatsby-inspired dress and be ready by 5pm. I have always loved the glamour of the 1920s, having often channelled the era when I worked as a model.
Knowing that I wanted to wear white, I went on a hunt through all the London vintage stores. But after finding nothing but hilarious 80s wedding dresses, I ended up feeling less Daisy Buchanan and more Muriel’s Wedding.
Luckily, Australian designer Willow came to my sartorial rescue with the most gorgeous floor-length, sheer dress which was perfect. My boyfriend, understanding my near obsession with Maison Michel, gave me the most divine headband made of pearls, coral and beads by the designer see here. I wore it with gardenias we picked from the garden – they smelled like heaven.
The evening was filled with my favourite champagne flowing, gorgeous food and cakes, a beautiful sunset and dancing that went well into the early morning. I was surrounded by my favourite people who were dressed to perfection in 1920s threads, with some of the handsome men going so far as to style a perfect moustache for the evening!
It was one of the best evenings of my life and the perfect way to begin the new year.
Back in January, I flew to Milan to walk in Alberta Ferretti’s Limited Edition 2012 Demi Couture show in Milan. It was such an honor to be asked back onto the catwalk and by none other than Ms Ferretti… It was the beginning of a very amazing friendship (MORE TO COME!)
Check out the my interview before the show… the lovely interviewer was so worried I had jinxed myself with my last comment!
