Where: Dolce & Gabbana London Collections: Men party
In my previous Look Du Jour post I questioned whether, metaphorically speaking, a leopard could change its sartorial spots. I think this ensemble proves that the answer is a definitive NO… Or at least in my case it is. But then when a frock is quite as goddamn gorgeous as this REDValentino number who the hell cares anyway? As anyone with an internet connection and an interest in fashion will have seen splashed all over the internet, this week the international style set hit Britain for London Collections: Men AW14. Naturally it kicked off with a fabulous bash hosted by Dolce & Gabbana and attended by Kylie Minogue which provided me with the perfect excuse to take this stunner for its first outing. Between the tiered skirt and lace brocade, this is one of the most unashamedly, deliciously early items I’ve ever owned so I decided to embrace the sugar sweet, princess prettiness of the whole thing and run with it. Queue pink lips, nails and detailing plus a touch or two of sparkle. The party was, unsurprisingly, wonderful and this ensemble went down a treat. Evidently New Year’s fasholutions are rather similar to New Year’s resolutions; both are made to be broken.
Love Ella. X
