PFW SS15 dawned gloriously sunny and bright and despite having caroused until the wee hours at the Balmain bash, I felt surprisingly sprightly. I told you I’d be spending the week upsetting understated Parisians with various colourful and/or sparkly get up and sure enough, day two saw me donning purple leopard print once again, this time accompanied by a sequin collar and pink bomber. Foolishly I decided to walk to my first show while wearing the most ankle breaking Gianvanito Rossi boots imaginable. I arrived slightly traumatised but in just about one piece and my attentions swiftly turned to the Chalayan show I was about to see, intriguingly entitled “Moor’s Gaze”…

5 Minutes With: InStyle Editor, Charlotte Moore

InStyle Magazine

You know when you meet someone and think, “when I grow up, I want to be you”? Well, InStyle Magazine Editor, Charlotte Moore is totally that person. At least for me, and I suspect for a fair few of you too. From Elle to Red to Marie Claire, Charlotte’s enviable and hard earned career has brought us endless enjoyment and inspiration by way of glossy fashion magazines. I’ve been lucky enough to get to know her a bit over the course of the past few fashion weeks and can tell you that besides being such a smart, stylish and powerful figure in the world of glossies, Charlotte also dispels all preconceptions about intimidating editrixes. I’ve lost count of the number of times I hitched a lift in her teams’ car between shows!

Bienvenue à la belle Paris, mes amis! And yes, I did concoct that sentence using google translate so it may well be grammatically rubbish. As I was reminded during PFW SS15, my french has long since ceased to be anything other than virtually non existent. In my defence I can still order dry white wine, rare steak and ask for my size in a shop and where the toilets are… I mean really, what else does a girl need? Getting back to the point of this post, we’ve finally come to the last leg of our fashion month journey. It’s been amazing, exhausting and nothing if not eventful. Having sadly and very reluctantly had to miss Milan thanks to that bout of gastroenteritis (I promise I’ll stop harping on about it soon) I arrived in Paris totally over excited and determined to make the most of it. I arrived accompanied by my lovely friend Michaela (who you may recall from our stay at The London EDITION) and after the quickest of changes we headed out on the town to wine, dine and mingle at the rewardStyle x Maje party. With a will of steel I didn’t know I possessed, I forced myself home to bed at a reasonable hour. As a result I woke up raring and ready to go, even managing a quick jog along the Seine before heading to show number one, Roland Mouret
