I worked on Sophie’s Wanderlust tour looks.
I had some beautiful sheer dresses made by Shadiye for the discotastic second half.
For the first half, I had Sophie’s dirndl dresses adapted by my amazing tailor, Chris and then embroidered by Laura Lees.
All a skip and a hop from my home, until last month in NW5.
Dress: Pierre Cardin from William Vintage
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Sophie Ellis Bextor is an absolute delight to work with, as well as being a total beauty, she is talented and generous to those who work with her.
Last night, I was invited to the album launch at Bush Hall, an opportunity for a rare date night with Jeremy. I was thrilled when I saw her beaming onto the stage wearing one of the outfits I had sourced for the album shoot: something Sophie had liked so much, that she had decided to buy and keep it.
The crowd were lovely: all seemed so happy to be there, and Sophie couldn’t contain her absolute excitement at sharing her beautiful new work, amazing voice and talented band.
Sophie has a great rapport with her audience and I beamed inside, when she said that everyone working on the project had been her first choice.
Thank you kind Sophie. It’s appreciation like that, which makes styling all the more pleasurable.
When she sang a surprise good bye accompanied by a piano to lead us out of the venue, you could hear how beautiful her voice is. I really felt so lucky to have been a part of the Wanderlust team and was thrilled to hear that already it is in the album top ten, within a day of launching.
A great reaction from The Daily Mail:-
I consulted and styled this collection, working on mood-boards, textiles, plus every area from lighting to music, from hair and make up to running order and casting; so am thrilled to see this fantastic response.
I switched my ‘phone back on, after watching the Baz Luhrmann version of ‘The Great Gatsby’, my head slightly spinning with the beautifully intense overloaded imagery. Imagine, then my surprise, when I saw that I had won the £900 spending spree prize at my local designer independent boutique! The fabulous Cochinechine in Hampstead, where I have been known to indulge in Marc Jacobs boots and admired their cool edits of quirky, strong and on-trend pieces. I am about to go there today: have checked the website multiple times and am more excited that I can spell! Will let you know what I decide upon.

There goes my retort that I never win anything!!!
As winter turns to spring with dramatic weather conditions ranging from epic blizzards to searing sunshine each day, here is this week’s inspiration: Ellen Terry as an Edwardian version of Lady Macbeth. Drama, glamour, range…
