Julien mcdonald ss14

Sparkly, flamboyant and dazzling...those are the three words which I associate with Julien McDonald and his collections. Last A/W13 season consisted of sequins galore, in red, gold and other striking colours. For this spring summer14 season, Julien just used gold, silver, white and black. The dresses were beautiful with similarly heavy embroidery as the previous season however, seemed more elegant and graceful than the previous collection. The silhouettes were long and thin and the clothes hugged the body which made me even more envious...I wish I could fit my rather chunky belly into a tight dress but I have a feeling that some people may vomit from seeing my 'vo jiggle jaggle'- these dresses were definitely made for the long and slender. But if you can fit into these dresses then you will surely look stunning.

Make-up was by the legendary Val Garland which was dark and outlined the eyes. Hair was by Martin Cullen (and his team of gorgeous Asian male hairdressers) with the hair pulled back and worn low. And nails were by my boss and nail professional, Liza smith with L'oreal colours which were nude on toes and faint pink on fingers with amazingly sparkly glitter tips on fingers and some toes (oh yes even more glitter and sparkle- Julien does have a desire for it and I'm obsessed).

Tom Ford S/S14

Now this show was hectic! We were squished backstage and keeping an eye on everything felt almost impossible but thanks to my asian genes, I am small and was able to duck and dive past every obstacle/person to make sure I knew what was going on. Oh I do love the pressurized atmosphere of backstage but even better...I love the catering! Needless to say, I would quickly stuff my mouth full and then run round around again. Hmmm yummy!

As for the show, large, impressive, mirrored walls surrounded us and an immediate rush of excitement came over me from being struck by the fabulosity of it all. However, that wasn't even the best bit! From the corner of my eye I spotted Anna Wintour and Colin Firth! Arrrrggghhh!!! I felt like the luckiest girl alive to have been in the same room as them.Oh just wait until I'm rich and fabulous and get invited to the shows just like them.

As for the Tom Ford collection, my first thoughts when the first few models walked out onto the runway...leather during spring/summer? Really? Hmmm looks more like an A/W collection to me. But as more and more models walked out, I saw jewelled and embellished dresses and jumpsuits. Envious much?!?!? And Charlotte Tilbury had done amazing job with the make-up as usual turning the models from plain-janes to fashionaistas. Overall, what a show! Lucky lucky lucky!
