Icons Remastered: Fiat 500 x Ella Eyre

The New Remastered Fiat 500 Launch With An Exclusive Performance By Ella Eyre

It has been a fair while since my last party post mes amies! I believe my last couple were about Valentino's epic, unforgettable Roman extravaganza and the 10th anniversary of Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb... So not bad bashes to take a hiatus after, am I right?
