Vogue Festival’s 2014 just passed by last weekend, and being my first visit to the event that has been running for two years, I must admit I enjoyed every minute of it. Getting the chance to experience the talk on “fashion, beauty and digital revolution” with Miroslava Duma (someone who I deeply admire), awesome designer Mary Katrantzou, photography legend Nick Knight and Pixie Geldof -all welcomed to the stage by British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman- was just perfect for what we all face everyday in the social media and understanding how all this social media influences the fashion business. Other talks had Valentino, Naomi Campbell and Karlie Kloss.

Not only that, some fun spaces for girly spoils welcomed fashionistas to shake up their hairstyles at the Kerastase stand, or to geh the nails done at the OPI spot, or even better, get a dramatic make-up by Burberry’s beauty line, all followed by a photobooth – this always is fun!

The best space was taken over Harrods, which with its #HarrodsLive offered a unique experience on its shiny catwalk, which usually would seem pretty scary, but although they took you as their model with a whole production team, they made it FUN, FUN. Anyone, could walk the catwalk.

I went with my mom on mother’s day (in the UK) and it was kind of the perfect date for da sisterhood. I got the coolest hairdo, she got the sexy waves, and we both hit the runway!

I would def come back next year, and hopefully to more talks!

Gisele Bundchen: Supermodel turned singer

By September 4, 2013 Inspiration

I had to take a break from the summery outfits to share this.

Alright, Brazilian top model Gisele Bündchen was the best paid model in Forbes list for the seventh year in a row, followed by Miranda Kerr and Adriana Lima. The golden hair darling is worth$250m becoming the highest-paid model in living history. In 2013 the 33-year-old mother-of-two made $42m thanks to dozens of lucrative fashion and beauty deals. Now it turns out, that she can also sing, or at least that’s what H&M and Vogue thought (I’m not entirely convinced yet though). Bündchen has replaced Beyonce as the new face of H&M, and she hasn’t given only her body for the Autumn/Winter 13 campaign, but also her voice. The song, All Day And All Of The Night by The Kinks, will be available for free download from, and will also be on iTunes, raising money for UNICEF. What do you think?

Grace Coddington: A Memoir

By December 3, 2012 NEW IN

When I saw this book came out, I immediately thought ‘I have to get it!’
Bur before I had time to go to the bookshop, I was surprised with my very first Christmas gift yesterday… ‘Grace. A Memoir’. Thank you Gabriela!!!

If there’s someone I deeply admire behind Vogue’s curtains is its Creative Director, the feisty ginger hair lady, Grace Coddington.

If you have seen the September Issue documentary (2009) you may agree with me that Grace Coddington quite steals the show, as you get to feel her, what she wants, what will work for the amazing production of the shoots, and best of all, how she confronts editor-in-chief Anna Wintour with her thoughts.
I have always loved her, l love the fact she’s true to who she is and her ideas.
Plus, her background as a model, her sad story of the car accident and the human person she seems to be, just makes her more special.
Now, I can get a bit more of her, told by her. Princess Grace!!!

Anna Wintour: ‘Be true to yourself’

By November 23, 2012 NEW IN

I don’t know if you would agree with this, but almost everyone looks at the American Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, as someone intimidating and scary. A simple thumbs up or down from her would kick start the career of new fashion talents either for design, business, photography or modelling. She’s an iconic figure in the industry and the face of fashion’s bible, Vogue. And yes, she’s the perfect example of women power. But, is she really the Devil Wears Prada that she seems at the September Issue film?

I rarely share the random things I like when going around the web, but I just loved seeing the other face of Anna. The best quote from her interview: ‘Be true to yourself’. How much I would like to actually meet her and have a long chat without cameras around… Here’s the interview from Forbes… Happy Black Friday!

Fashion’s Night Out London

By September 7, 2012 Events

Yesterday was Fashion’s Night Out (#FNO) and London streets were crowded with shoppers visiting boutiques and queieng to see what’s in-store, enjoy a cocktail or champagne and  whichever entertainment they had inside. I pretty much stayed around the same area as my fashion partners last night was shopping too much, so we spent long times at specific stores, we even had a fantastic time at Miu Miu, where we stayed until they closed. Salvatorre Ferragamo had a mini fashion show with models  wearing its latest collection of pure elegance. Alexander McQueen was my favourite spot as I went  back for fun, its amazing cocktails and yes, a scarf… Those pink envelopes on the mirror? Some of them had presents inside from Alexander McQueen (bracelets & scarves), but unfortunately, I wasn’t lucky enough to bring one home! :( It was fun though.

Stages on the street were playing great live music and Hermes had a fun stage with swing dance called ‘Swing in Silk’ as every female dancer was wearing a skirt made of Hermes’ silk scarves and male dancers were wearing them on their neck and wrists, it was all decorated with colours from Hermes fab collection. I also spotted British designer Henry Holland at Joseph wearing his latest line, of course, and a great look from a presenter wearing FNO’s Gap tee.

For long I have had that Lulu Guiness red lips clutch  on my head, but haven’t got it yet, however, I had a shot with it at their boutique (#LuluFNO) in The Burlington Arcade, where a circus was on all night with dancers, clowns, dolls, popcorn, candy cotton and even reptiles (don’t know if that’s really entertainment).

After going around, I did fell in love with some amazing designs at different stores and really enjoyed DNKY’s fantastic music. Overall, a great night! Big round of applause to London’s boutiques and Vogue. Here’s my resume with lots of photos.

Did you go out? In which city and which was your favourite spot?
