Christmas Windows: A Trip Down London’s Bond Street

I love Christmas and one of my favourite activities is to wander around London and check out all the amazing window displays. I love how retailers always step up their creativity and this year is no exception. I will be bringing you the wonders of the department stores such as SelfridgesLiberty London and Harrods, but first I wanted to take you on a trip down London’s Bond Street and bring you my favourite festive displays from the likes of Mulberry, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany’s, and Cartier who have literally wrapped up their store.

Tiffany & Co:

One of the most enchanting windows has to be from Tiffany’s, the master of romance have produced doll-sized windows celebrating the magic of the season, centred around ‘My True Love Gave To Me’. Basically this is a look inside the perfect Tiffany & Co town house – starting with the Tiffany blue door to the striking chandelier, and the grand entrance. I think Barbie would definitely approve!!!

Ralph Lauren:

Next up is a white Christmas courtesy of Ralph Lauren, who have dressed their windows in a dramatic winter wonderland full of glamour – and while taking the pictures I was even treated to a choir singing Christmas carols – very festive.

Mulberry:

Mulberry has gone all gold, scattering its windows with oversized padlocks, keys and Christmas cards to place inside the Mulberry postbox.

Fenwicks: 

One of the highlights of my Bond Street wander had to be the Fenwick windows, which were dark, sparkly and very different – I loved the Gothic edge and how the clothes and accessories reflected in the wall covered baubles.

Do you love taking in Christmas windows while shopping? Let me know if you have seen any special as I love hunting down creative displays. For more pictures head on over to my Facebook page where I have added more of my trip down London’s Bond Street.

Twilight – Breaking Dawn Part 2: Kristen Stewart In Zuhair Murad

Who: Kristen Stewart

Where: At the Los Angeles premiere of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in California

Wearing: A nude strapless Zuhair Murad gown featuring lace and chiffon panelling and a corseted bodice from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a Cartier bracelet

Verdict: I was expecting something short, black, and tight, not feminine, romantic and sexy, and while I love the colour, the silhouette of the gown, and that she stepped out of her comfort zone I am just not loving this look a 100%.

For me this gown would have been perfection if the skirt had a light layer underneath, everything about this gown is divine, I just can’t help but think the nude is a little too much – what do you think?

What I do absolutely adore about this look has to be her old Hollywood-inspired hair, her side-swept locks makes such a statement and her bold lippy is just divine.

What do you think of Kristen’s look?

The Amazing Spider-Man: Emma Stone In Chanel

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the LA premiere for her new movie The Amazing Spider-Man

Wearing: A short-sleeved white Chanel dress with burgundy velvet embroidered flowers on the bodice and shoulders from the Resort 2012/3 collection, teamed with a peek-a-boo tulle underlay, silver spiked Christian Louboutin heels with ankle straps and Cartier jewellery

Verdict: Coming to the end of her world tour for Spider-Man, Emma really has pulled out all the stops wearing a gorgeous tuxedo-style jumpsuit by Elie Saab, a sexy Gucci gown, a stunning Bottega Veneta gown with a striking peplum waist, and a delicate embroidered Dolce & Gabbana dress, so it was only fair that Chanel got a look in!!!

I am not sure if this is my favourite of the looks, the Elie Saab and the Dolce & Gabbana were amazing, and come on the black Gucci gown was incredible, but this is gorgeous and elegant, while still showcasing her fun personality perfectly. I think you will all agree this has been a very successful promo tour for Emma in the fashion stakes.

People Like Us: Elizabeth Banks Sparkles In Elie Saab

Who: Elizabeth Banks 

Where: At the screening of “People Like Us” in New York City

Wearing: A nude, fully embroidered Elie Saab halterneck cocktail dress, with an open back, from the autumn/winter 2012 ready-to-wear collection, teamed with Pierre Hardy strappy heels, an Edie Parker clutch, and jewellery by Cartier

Verdict: This her second look from the Elie Saab autumn/winter 2012 collection, I loved her jumpsuit that she wore to the MTV Movie Awards, but this cocktail dress is just flawless. I love the halterneck style on Elizabeth, but what makes this fully embellished dress shine for me has to be the glittering metallic ombré effect – simply gorgeous.

I love that she didn’t do too much with her accessories both the clutch and heels matched perfectly, I especially love the triple gold and nude strap heels by Pierre Hardy.

As always I am blown away by Elizabeth from head-to-toe, her dress is divine, her accessories are perfection, and her make-up and hair is flawless. LOVE it all.
