Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

LFW Diary: Entry 5

Jenny Packham - Autumn/Winter 09

Jenny Packham brought glitz and glamour to the catwalk with her collection of sultry Grecian inspired gowns. The red carpet designer and British bridal wear expert put on a spectacular show. For me, there's just one word to describe her pieces - divine!

Style notes: Fabrics are floaty and silhouettes slinky. The attention grabbing necklines and bejewelled bodices make the dresses real statement pieces. Embellishment rules with subtle hints of old Hollywood glamour, Greek goddess and vintage style. My favourite piece is the yellow dress dipped top to bottom in jet black gem stones and the beaded 1920s hem gave it fantastic movement.

Colour notes: Rich tones of royal blue, yellow, red and purple.

Gossip: A small number of front row critics were not as enthusiastic about the embellishment. One calling some of the pieces "over-kill and gaudy". However the majority ruled that the bejewelled collection was right on-trend for the Winter party season.

Here are my highlights from the catwalk:
