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.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

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.

Next Model Competition Winners

A big congratulations to Kiren Modi and Dan Clarke who battled it out among 50 contestants and won the prestigious Make me the Next Model competition last week Thursday. The two winners will feature in future issues of the Next Directory and have hopefully started a fantastic modelling career.

The event staged at a secret venue in central London was an exciting soirée with a fashion-led panel of judges including the beautiful Emanuela De Paula - face of Next and Brazilian Model extraordinaire. The contestants showed us what they were made of, Flawless (of Britain's Got Talent fame) rocked the venue with their body popping street dance and the AW09 fashion show had me scribbling frantically about black sequins and primary brights (more about that later).

Next Model Contestants 2009

I have great respect for the 50 contestants who made it through to the final. Rumour has it that they all had to learn catwalk routines, master their signature walk and grasp the backstage pressure just hours before the show started. Nerves certainly would have got the better of me, but the finalists did well to hide any sign of intimidation and all did brilliantly given the short time span.

The night ended with good food and an invitation to the dance floor, which I happily accepted.
Here are some photos of the event:
