Stepping out in September
Well what can I say this September has been amazing! The start of the month was so exciting with a very special event for me, as I was honoured to be awarded the Fashion Philanthropist of the year at the Scottish Fashion Awards. I was thrilled to receive so many amazing messages from people including actress Eva Longoria and Spice Girl Mel B. It was such a shock! I wore a bespoke Chester Barrie three piece suit and felt very elegant in the wonderful surroundings of the Corinthia Hotel.
Lights, Camera, Action
I have also been filming an exciting new TV show for UK TV with the singer Sophie Ellis Bextor. She is a dream to work with, and I chose to style her in an exquisite Kolchagov Barba gown with beautiful silk detailing. I paired this with a Lulu Guinness signature over sized lip bag.
Fashion Week Begins
Talking about designers, its one of the sure signals that Summer is over when the fashion weeks begin. This year there some wonderful shows including Julien Macdonald’s take on menswear which he debuted this season, along with Henry Hollands show. One designer who I love and really admire is Sorapol, they truly are innovative and the embellishments on their garments are exquisite.
London Fashion Week was full of fabulous parties and the best one was the LVMH one which was attended by Selena Gomez and Scottish singer Tallia Storm who both have stylish take on youth fashion. Tallia rocked Fashion Week, and with the launch of her new book, Pop Girl, this girl is a superstar in the making.
A Meeting with Royalty
The highlight of September for me has been my very exciting meeting with Prince William. I do a lot of work with the charity the Diana Awards, and I was lucky enough to meet Prince William with my dear friend Maria Bravo. Although I was very nervous, it was great to meet him and I am so excited to be doing more for the charity!
Awards Season Begins
Awards Season started with a bang in the US with the TV Emmy Awards.. This season, so many stars have started to step away from dressing in nudes and are instead choosing to embrace strong colours. Sarah Hyland from comedy series Modern Family caught my eye with her rich red dress which was stunning, although I felt Heidi Klum looked like she had dressed early for Halloween.
