Turning into a bit of a regular on my Sunday Love posts it’s Sarah Jessica Parker.  This week SJP was at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball in New York City in a silk, flower cut out, feather trimmed Louis Vuitton dress with white shoes.  Bijou brides, after the recent trend for colour contrast wedding shoes perhaps it…

Earlier this week Lady Gaga unleashed her Christmas menagerie in New York’s iconic store Barney’s featuring stuffed animals, books she read as baby Gaga, chocolate shoes, exclusive jewellery amongst many other weird and wonderful items.  Although this is all fantastic it was what our Gaga wore to the grand opening that grabbed my attention, couture…

My Sunday Love this week had to be the marriage of two American dynasties as David Lauren wed Lauren Bush, it was a stunning luxe Western Wedding.  They married at Ralph Lauren’s family estate in Colorado with a theme of ‘rustic elegance’ and magnificent Western detailing.  Groom David explained that the Wedding felt like  “A beautiful…

It seems I was ahead of trend with my birthday glitter fetish, as over the past week the ladies of the A-List have been rocking some serious sparkle sprinkled gowns. SOFT Fashioning fairy like credentials in dresses with just a splatter of stardust sequins were Michelle Williams in Erdem at a screening of My Week With Marilyn and Amy Adams, who wore…

I know people think I’m rather mad getting re-married every five years (well that’s the plan anyway) but as film director/restaurant critic/actor in irritating adverts Michael Winner proved a couple of weeks ago, you are never too old.

Bijou brides I spied two key trends that may influence your wedding day look – an epidemic of celeb bodies draped in red and dazzling sequin patterned gowns.  There were also key…

It is no secret that I have a lady crush on Diane Kruger, she never fails in the red carpet style stakes with her fresh interpretation of classic Hollywood glamour.  This week’s Venice Film Festival appearance was yet another winner, a bejewelled Elie Saab dress worn to the premiere of The Ides of March.  I adore sparkle,…

This summer has provided a veritable windfall in beautiful celebrity weddings and this past weekend the eminent, Academy Award winning director Sofia Carmina Coppola married her rock star boyfriend Thomas Mars in  Bernalda, Italy.  If you’ve seen any of her movies – Lost In Translation, The Virgin Suicide, Somewhere, Marie Antoinette – you’ll appreciate that her…

This week I’ve been mostly thinking about dress code for the wedding.  My friends and family always look fabulous but I like the idea of the whole wedding party in one union and a colour dress code seems like a fun way to do it (plus it makes it easier for guests looking for an…

Happy Sunday Bijou brides. Did you see this image of Sarah Jessica Parker posing with her husband Matthew Broderick in the latest American Vogue?  Swoon.  I have big hearts for SJP, she’s a bit of an icon of mine and I adore polka dots.  It’s giving me ideas for polka dot wedding dresses and a…
