Vogue Italia, Lauren Hutton: On Point

Vogue Italia, Lauren Hutton: On Point

 

Timeless for sure; fabulous forever.

Lauren Hutton has become the oldest cover girl featured on Vogue.

“It has made me feel most useful. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but it took Vogue Italia’s courage to make it true. This is a cover that can change society, because it shows a woman who is vibrant, attractive, who still laughs, and who for the first time is a woman my age.” Lauren Hutton

L’Oreal: One Way To Close The Champs Elysées

L’Oreal: One Way To Close The Champs Elysées

Yes, they did it again.

Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda were knockouts when they walked the runway for L’Oréal this past fashion week in Paris.

Ok, the truth is I didn’t adore their outfits but I absolutely adore them and their ability to shine.

They are both outstanding women and if they aren’t “better not younger” then I don’t know who is.

Bravo L’Oréal for your first runway show and for the celebration of all women.


By the way, the hair was fabulous, too.

The Indispensable: Leopard Print #3

The Indispensable: Leopard Print #3

#3 in the leopard print series is indispensable in my view.

For me, it is the dress.



I don’t say it is first on my list but is definitely one I want in my cupboard.

For some it is a coat, a wrap or shoes (we will talk about those next) and don’t misunderstand I absolutely love a leopard coat and an accessory.

Probably a faux leopard print coat is number one on my list this year but the dress, the leopard print dress is a winner.

What Is Your Can’t Live Without?

What Is Your Can’t Live Without?

There is one piece in my wardrobe I can’t live without.

Can you guess?


Mine is the blazer.

The long one, the shorter one, the one with buttons, the one without; the blazer is my go-to for just about every occasion and event.

Especially when I am travelling.  

The blazer solves those decisions I don’t wish to spend making and whether I wear one over jeans, pants or a fuller skirt, I am happy.


Do you know that feeling when you put on a piece and it feels “Goldilocks” right?

Hong Kong And A Love Of Embroidery

Hong Kong And A Love Of Embroidery

Hong Kong and my search for embroidery continues.

I have had a love affair with Hong Kong since forever and part of this love affair includes embroidery. Embroidered anything to be precise.


My first trip to Hong Kong at the age of ten was an eye-opener. Hong Kong was a very different place in those days and the quest for embroidery far easier than it is today. Hong Kong is a fabulous fast-paced city with an eye for the modern rather than the traditional.


I understand desire for change and progress, but my love for the old-style continues.

Side Swipe, I Mean Side Stripe

Side Swipe, I Mean Side Stripe


I have had a crush on the side stripe for a while now.

There was a great pair of velvet track style pants in my wardrobe with satin stripes for some time. They worked in so many ways, until they didn’t. That was more about a fabric split than a style malfunction.


A new pair is definitely in order.

Let’s think of these trousers as an addition to our ‘black and white’ dressing rather than as humble athletic pants.

That ship sailed a while ago.

The side stripe pant may have its origins in sportswear but it is a pant to be worn everywhere and in a variety of ways.
