Everything is right: MK's deep red lips, battered Kelly, vintage hat and leopard-print coat contrasting with Ashley's business-like Kelly, crystal encrusted Manolo's and lace-trimmed rich teal dress.
With this image now cemented firmly in my brain, it actually pains me to get dressed in the morning.

Monday evening and my Paris hen do has been and gone, leaving me with a hoarse voice and wonderful memories. The girls did me proud! In the past 48 hours i've flicked through racks of vintage Balmain, Chanel and Chloé and experienced the best show i've ever and possibly will ever see at the Lido on the Champs-Élysées.
Showgirls, cabaret and prancing ponies aplenty, there was sequins, beading, trouser suits reminiscent of Yves Saint Laurent circa 1990 and topless Parisian burlesque beauties! Lithe and impeccably turned out, the breast-baring beauties were high up on the table discussions with much adoration.
So with this in mind and while flicking through Alice in Wardrobe Wonderland, i wanted to do a post about the wonder of femininity and fashion and especially how nudity can be portrayed tastefully and polar opposite to a tabloid page 3.
Would you agree?

From runway to red carpet, clearly the only woman brave enough to take Alexander McQueen's 'Armadillo' heels by the sartorial horns would be Daphne Guinness. Presenting at last night's NARS event, Guinness paired the perilously high heels with a runway computerised dress and finished with her trademark theatrical kohl-smudged make up.
I'm not sure how i feel about the end result, or indeed the heels themselves. The shoes are a work of art but who's to say art has to be tasteful or even something that everyone approves of? The colour is a little too similar to her ghost-like legs but perhaps Guinness had McQueen's creature creations in mind and chose to execute her look to the exacting standards of his recent S/S 10 collection.
So while i sit on the fence and mull over whether this art form should have stayed as that, i wonder what your thoughts are?

She's definitely one to keep an eye on.
