Selfie on the way to a 50th birthday party- dress code ‘blue’

Selfie on the way to a 50th birthday party- dress code 'blue'. I've had this tie-dye turquoise silk slip dress for 20 years ( bought in a sample sale). It's my go-to Summer dress to dress up or down and take on holidays as it rolls up into a tiny nothing. 
I wore it with flat sandals as the party was at a farm house in a field in a fabulous Moroccan style marquee with very uneven ground that required major concentration and definitely no heels to safely navigate across and dance.
It was a great party. .

As it’s Wimbledon fortnight I thought I’d continue posting some more images of past Wimbledon champions styled by me

As it's Wimbledon fortnight I thought I'd continue posting some more images of past Wimbledon champions styled by me.

Anna Kournikova aged 18, styled by me in Berlin. She'd refused to participate in my photoshoot when requested in advance from London. 
However when she saw Polaroids of other players from my day's photoshoot she loved their photos, and unexpectedly turned up at the end of the shoot with most of her Russian family members. There were a lot of them.

She loved the Escada dress I chose for her to wear and the Bvlgari diamonds. 
As she had come straight from the Berlin open tennis tournament all she had with her was her sports bra and no other suitable bra to wear with the dress and she was very keen on having lots of cleavage showing.

The only bra I had with me was a "Wonderbra' ( if you remember the Eva Herzigova "Hello Boys" wonderbra ad ) plunge bra of my own in my suitcase which I of course lent her. 
She still wanted more cleavage, so I obliged using contour shading.

She was to be on a magazine cover as the editor loved the photo of her so much. However her L.A. agents were less than pleased when they saw the photos as no one knew that she was about to be endorse and be advertising a sports bra which apparently made her cleavage innapropriate at that time.  Who was to know this?! So we were not allowed to use the full length photo, hence the cropped head shot which ended up as the magazine cover photo. The full length photo was never used.

When I was styling celebrities, I styled Serena Williams when she was only 17.

I styled Serena in Berlin, Germany during the women's WTA tour.  She is wearing an Escada dress and BVlgari diamonds worth around £60,000. We had a security guard to look after us and the diamonds. .

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 Kahlo @vamuseum London.

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…


Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Even after a leg amputation Frida remained true to her own unique personal style customising her prosthetic leg with a stylish  decorated boot.

1933 Self-portrait Frida Kahlo exhibition Making herself up @vamuseum London. Frida's mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time. She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon '"everything's rosy" lipstick  and red nail varnish.

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial

2 more of my age 50plus ladies Styled by me for the @lookfabforever TV commercial. "Act the age you feel" is the look on the left and
"No olds barred" on the right.
When you reach age 50 and beyond don't become invisible by dressing to fade into the background.
Be bold with colour and design but always dress to flatter your bodyshape.
