To add to the excitement of the new season ahead of us... in come the SS'11 Campaigns from high-end Designers! From the rather showy and colourful Frida Gustavsson for Anna Sui SS'11; to the high-octane joy of the 70's at Marc Jacobs, and the minimalist aesthetic at Chloe.
MARC JACOBS SS'2011
The Marc Jacobs Campaign features models Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Masha Kirsanova - this is a vibrant high octane shot of Seventies glamour ...photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Venetia Scott.
YVES SAINT LAURENT SS'2011
This season, model Arizona Muse, was chosen to front the YSL SS'11 Campaign which was shot by duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in a Moroccan Villa in Marrakech. It was Creative Director Stefano Pilati himself, that styled this campaign - above is just one of the final images chosen, with Arizona dressed in a shoulder revealing Black Dress, Deep Berry nails and a slight Vampish stare.
FRIDA GUSTAVSSON FOR ANNA SUI SS'11
Hannah MacGibbon continues her focus on minimalist aesthetic for Spring Summer 2011 with a relaxed campaign featuring models Iselin Steiro and Malgosia Bela; photographed by David Sims.
Designers really have given us a mixed bag of sweets for Spring Summer 2011...and there's plenty to choose from! Time to form my New Year Wardrobe I think...

The BEST cover for January 2011 has to be Harper's Bazaar US - Lily Donaldson photographed by Terry Richardson. Perhaps I love it so much because three of my favourites together ...
Lily + Harper's Bazaar + Terry = Creative Fashion Explosion!
Harper's Bazaar always have fantastic covers that excite me, and make me want to pick up the magazine and buy it! I collect Harper's Bazaar anyway, so I would buy it regardless, but it always makes me feel like it's worth it when such a fantastic cover and pictorial is featured (the content is always exceptional). And bravo to our Lily! ...I had to share the whole pictorial with you!
HOT ...! Bravo Harper's Bazaar US - the best start to 2011 I think!

So I though I would share some festive pictures of our tree with you... I've just finished preparing for tomorrow and have glazed the potatoes so they're ready to go in the oven with the turkey tomorrow! Just my home-made Mince Pies left to make! My sister's famous Rum Truffles and mini Christmas Pudds are currently being made in the kitchen - I'm super excited for these Rum Truffles, hmm so tasty!
Like ...? Hope so! Lol I've just noticed you can see my reflection in one of the blue baubles above ...haha!
Merry Christmas Darlings!

#christmaswish24 : Aah what fun I've had with my #christmaswish everyday! I'm actually going to kind of miss it, so I thought I would finish off with my ultimate #christmaswish for Christmas Eve...
An Open back Gown in Peach Pink, embroidered with Silk fringe and Crystals. From the Versace Atelier Fall 2010 Collection. Just look at it, this gown is a dream ...and a perfect couture end to the year!
Three dazzling celebrities : Natasha Yarovenko, Paula Echevarria and the gorgeous Monica Cruz; grace the limited edition hard-cover of Spanish ELLE, the December Issue 2010. Each ablaze with 15,000 Swarovski Crystal Elements!
I'm currently obsessing over this Ruched Velvet Dress by luxe Designer brand Vionnet. I've featured Vionnet before briefly and I'm certian you see alot more of the brand on here as it's fast becoming a hot favourite of mine! I would do anything for this ultra seductive dress that's the perfect modern take on an LBD. If there's a celebrity that comes to mind with this dress, then it's got to be Angelina Jolie! I love the way Net-a-Porter have styled this, with thigh-high boots for a tough impact and minimal jewellery. With a cut like that, and such luxe fabric and detailing (not to mention the back ...omg ...I love!), there's no need for any extra fuss. The Perfect Cocktail Dress!
Ruched Velvet Dress - £1,695 - Vionnet - available at Net-a-Porter

This jacket is one of my favourite pieces for fall. It's perfect because it is so versatile and can be worn with pants or, skirts, dresses and leggings. If you like the aviator style, but these accentuated features are too much, a simple aviator jacket still makes the same trendy statement. It looks fantastic with leather pants and can be easily mixed so many different trends too.

This Pewter Lace Zuhair Murad gown is to die for! Not an image 'hot off the press' I know, but when filming for new season Gossip Girl back in September, Blake Lively was dressed in this divine evening gown on set. It's so delicate, but what an impact this gown has made! Blake looks stunning and I love how fine the lace is. Beautiful.

Lily Donaldson, Sasha Pivovarova, and Caroline Trentini in Alexander McQueen Spring Summer 2011 for Vogue US. These outfits create such an impact - although my eyes are still drawn into Sasha's face - so intense and so beautiful!

Kate Middleton stepped out for the Teenage Cancer Trust Christmas Party recently and the Princess-to-be got it spot on, with a monochrome midi dress and a luxe Velvet Blazer - very on-trend indeed! Kate often steps out for a spot of shopping in Reading - the Oracle, and back when I used to work in Reiss, she often popped in - I must admit, she is so lovely to speak to, absolutely beautiful - and looks no different to what we all see in the Press and Media (she also has the tiniest frame)! I look forward to seeing more fantastic and very smart looks from our future Princess!!
