Yesterday I was a lucky blogger, I got to be in a room with the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who as regularly readers will know I am slightly obsessed with and she totally didn’t disappoint.

A few weeks back I went to the Charlotte Street Hotel to check out the autumn/winter 2011 collection, as well as to find out what plans the label has considering it turns 100 years old this year *I know, who would have thought it*, and seriously I was wowed by the gorgeous feminine collection.
