Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London


Excited for the press preview of Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A. . . . . .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair. Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.

Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…

Chatting on BBC Radio Berkshire about the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot racing 2017 style and fashion rules.  Having been the BBC TV fashion and style reporter from Royal Ascot races myself a few years ago and also a regular Royal Ascot Royal Enclosure attendee for many years I have watched how the fashion style rules and regulations have evolved and often now ignored

So now Royal Ascot authority has re-issued their style criteria to help maintain fashion and style standards. This year the rules  include allowing a jumpsuit which must however be full length.

The last time anything as dramatic as this happened was in the ’70’s when trouser suits were allowed for the first time ever.

Please click on the link below to hear me on BBC Radio on the seemingly divisive topic of those Amanda Wakeley £900 leather trousers as worn by Theresa May for the Sunday Times Style photoshoot.

Are leather trousers suitable for a Prime Minister’s wardrobe?
What sort of message is she sending out with her personal style choices?
Should she be wearing Designer clothes with a high price tag?
What do your clothes say about you? What messages do they send out?
When you are in the public eye, is what you wear important?
Would we be discussing a male politician’s wardrobe so critically?

In York city staying at #hotelduvin @Hdv_York

In York for a flying visit.

I was there for my lifestyle, style, image, self-confidence, best first impressions ‘Style your life’ consulting business.

I stayed at the Hotel du Vin which was perfectly situated close the York city wall, making it very easy to explore the beautiful city.

Here below are some of my favourite views of the City and of the stylish and comfy Hotel.

@BBCRadioLondon Is cleavage out of Vogue now? #cleavage #celebrity #style

Is cleavage in or out?
Vogue has suggested that celebrities are now covering up.
Has the focus on cleavage moved to a having smaller breasts and wearing a plunging neckline down to the waist?
Has the focus moved to dresses with slits slashed to the thigh?
Or are shoulders and back the new erogenous zones?
Listen to my thoughts on the subject on BBC Radio London Drive time show chatting with Eddie Nestor —-
