It has been a while since I have actually posted something on my blog that hasn’t had something to do with my wedding, sorry about that but I hope you understand that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I just had to share. So, before I bombard you with photographs from my UK celebrations that fingers crossed you all want to see, I thought I would showcase this amazing editorial from the latest issue of Vogue Paris with real-life designer Barbie dolls.
Who: Lady Gaga
Where: At the iHeartRadio Music Festival held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas
Wearing: A Moschino black crepe dress with waist ruffle and bow detail from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, Gaga finished off her look with Fendi shades, black envelope clutch, elbow-length leather gloves, striking diamond jewellery and black round toe heels
Verdict: This look certainly sees Lady Gaga channelling her inner lady like chic with what I can only describe as her Breakfast at Tiffany’s moment. Come on it can’t just be me who instantly thought of Aubrey Hepburn, I just love Gaga with her hair styled updo, and she really does pull off lady like very well.
Anyone else loving her feminine look at the moment?

Who: Dita Von Teese
Where: Paris Vogue’s 90th Anniversary Party at Hotel Pozzo di Borgo in Paris
Wearing: A custom-made 18″ corseted riding coat by Paris-based couture designer Mr Pearl paired with lace stockings from the Dita Collection Secrets, a Fendi clutch and Christian Louboutin heels
Verdict: Every ball needs Dita to bring something different, I love that she didn’t go for a gown like everyone else she teased us with a gorgeous tailored coat dress. Of course she kept true to her style, showed off her tiny waist, showed us her stockings and finished it off with striking red lippy.
The only thing, and it is a very slight thing *actually being very picky*, I think I was expected a more amazing mask. I get it a black mask framed on a handle is a classic look – but how cool would Dita have looked with an extravagant feathered number? She has the attitude that something outrageous needs to pull off. But hey I still love the outfit – Dita looks gorgeous.
Who: The Hills Lo Bosworth
Where: At French Connection’s AW10 collection launch party at Soho House in Los Angeles
Wearing: A ruby silk-georgette long-sleeved embellished dress teamed with a Chanel bag and Fendi peep-toe bow heels
Verdict: I love the beaded detail on this dress but for me it has to be the colour the ruby is amazing. How cute does Lo look and her legs – wow – finishing The Hills has done wonders for her. This is a super flattering dress which I also think would totally work for the day as well with flats.
Buy Her Style: The Rebecca Beads Dress from French Connection is available in five shades: black, tanya blue, port, winter grey and ruby (as above) and surprisingly it is only £140 – great party dress.
