All I want for Christmas is… Selfridges’ beauty advent calendar

Selfridges L'Oreal advent calendar

Each window houses Selfridges’ most popular beauty products in a dinky miniature size, including Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil, Lancôme Teint Miracle and Mini Juicy Tube, YSL Belle D’Opium, Kiehls Creme de Corps and Emporio Armani Diamonds. These sold out in double quick time last year so I really hope Selfridges has upped its order this year.

Dolce & Gabbana for Netaporter: the launch party

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were in town last week to celebrate their arrival on Netaporter and Mr Porter. I attended the party with my mysterious date (you might spot me in this video if you’re really eagle eyed) and caught up with all my blog buddies at what had to be one of the best fash bashes of the year.

My personal highlight was spotting Queen Latifah looking so cool, classic and fierce (sorry, no other word will do), although gassing with Stefano Gabbana (the taller one – yay, I now know which one’s which) about Notting Hill eateries (he frequents The Electric) and David Gandy about how to fold a pocket square was really no hardship…
