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.

Posted by London Darling

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 1

Paul Costelloe - Autumn/Winter 09

With over 15 years showing at London Fashion Week, Paul Costelloe is a true veteran of the event and this weekend he presented a modern twist on vintage inspired designs for Autumn/Winter 09. Costelloe's signature tailoring was matched with fun, floaty hemlines, reminiscent of the swinging 1960s.

Style notes: The collection was both ambitious and lustrous, featuring dresses, jumpsuits and outerwear. My favourite look were the stylish babydoll dresses in Damask and brocade textures, adorned with large corsages. Also the gorgeous chunky polo neck knits - very opulent in style.

Colour notes:
Black, gold, metallic grey, blood red and muted tones of pink and purple.

Gossip: Costelloe's collection had some mixed reactions from viewers and front row fashion critics. Generally the reaction was one of great respect. Although, one critic described the use of brocade on one of Costelloe's ambitious jumpsuit designs as a "GCSE style" mistake. Harsh no?

Here are my highlights from the catwalk:
