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.

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%.

Who: Mad Men’s January Jones Where: At the 2012 Met Gala in New York Wearing: A custom strapless yellow Atelier Versace gown with mirror panels to the bustier and structured detailing to the hips, teamed with a stunning Cartier necklace Verdict: OMG, this is one stunning dress, not only because of the colour, which is divine, but because of the detailing, this is couture at its very best and I love it. When being interviewed, January said that she loved to wear avant-garde when she can and I can see why, especially when Versace make a dress especially for you. In another
