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

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. .

On BBC Radio London Drivetime at 4.40pm with Jim Davis

On BBC Radio London Drivetime at 4.40pm with Jim Davis. Chatting to Jim on how to do hot Summer dressing in the office workplace. Especially if you are client facing. 
How to stay cool but still look appropriate for your company brand and ethos.  No flip flops, bra straps, etc.
However if you work within the media or for a young IT or techi company then anything goes. @bbcradiolondon

What does a girl do when still wearing flats and no makeup?
You go to Peter Jones and do a whole makeup on the Laura Mercier counter with their testers and buy a pair of heels on sale reduced from £90 to £45. 
Result! .
