The invevitable SATC2 post

As a loyal Sex And the City fan, of course I was straight to the cinema on Friday to see the new film. I was bitterly disappointed as they seem to be taking the film in a completely different direction to the sheer brilliance of the TV show. It's become too Hollywood; the plots are hardly believable and the humor is forced.
In fact the only thing that got me through the screening was the pre-SATC cocktails I'd had, with Skyy vodka - my personal favourite was the Cosmopolitan chaser, served with just a dash of champagne on top. Oh, and Patricia Field herself has joined fabulous forces with Skyy vodka to create a limited edition bottle and drink that I'm sure even Carrie would approve of, so dash down to Harvey Nichols to get the gift box as you'll need the whlle bottle to get through the film!
During the film one pleasant surprise however was Cynthia Nixon, she seemed to act as a reminder of the old SATC - not caught up in drama instead, she steadied the plot and remained a voice of reason. Her clothes were the least OTT, and she looked great.
That's why I was so glad to see her amazing clothes for the campaign trail, in particular the blue Narciso Rodriguez dress she wore to the London premiere.

It's such a great colour on her, and hair is the perfect strawberry blonde shade.

The dress especially stood out against such showy gowns the other girls wore

Dree continues to shine

It's not been long since I posted that stunning gold make up editorial featuring Anja from Vogue Nippon. This time it's the same photographer, and the same magazine but this time it's Dree's chance to shine. The girl really knows her angle, and this is one of the softest, most beautiful beauty editorials I've seen for a reall long time. Are Vogue Nippon the only magazine still placing some emphasis on the beauty editorial? I hope not, because they are the hidden gem of the magazine.

Lara Stone's guide to the wedding

I'm really not one for wedding dresses, or weddings in general to be honest. They generally all look the same to me, same classic taste and same 'modest' but 'flattering' dress. Then Lara Stone came along, the gap toothed Bardot wonder, of course she wasn't going down to the traditional route, and I am so glad. Maybe, Lara will make weddings cool again...

Step 1:

Sort out the party dress. It's unacceptable to stay in that huge wedding number for the after party, so Lara has opted for the most glittery and opulent dress she could find. Luckily, both dresses were designed by Ricardo Tisci of Givenchy, which meant they stayed away from the Dolly Parton type glitter dress.
I can't believe how skinny she looks - her waist is tiny!

Step 2:

Choose a modern wedding dress. I love how this dress is still the traditional white, but it is bought bang up to date with the delicate lace and gold beading. The thigh high split is a great twist too. This dress is so very Lara.

Step 3:

Fabulous guests. Okay, so David's choice of guests were questionable at best (a cavalcade of mildly funny British comedians) but Lily & Tom were clearly Lara's choice. Lily looks beautiful, and like a true model guest. Unfortunately, there aren't many pictures of the 'fashion' guests, but rumour has it Bette Franke was the bridesmaid!
