The Royal Wedding: David and Victoria Beckham

April 29, 2011 2 comments

Naturally I am only keeping up with the Royal Wedding for fashion purposes! Thanks to Vogue.com (and some of my fashionista tweeters) we get a look at what David and Victoria Beckham wore to the big event.

I think David looks great in a custom-made suit by Ralph Lauren Purple. The side parting is not my thing, but looks good and appropriate. Victoria is typically wearing a piece from her AW 11/12 collection, though I think she modified it. She went for look 2 which you can see here at Vogue Posh spice completed her look with a Philip Treacy pillbox hat.

What do you think?

She’s HOT! Anita Darling Ubhi

April 13, 2011 Leave a comment

My latest feature for “She’s HOT” had to be the cool and sassy Anita Darling Ubhi, Fashion stylist and founder/editor of award-winning fashion site Anita Darling.

My first encounter with Anita was when she was painting my nails for a beauty shoot. Little did I know how much talent and persistence this young woman possessed.  It wasn’t long though before we were talking all things fashion and industry and I started to discover that Anita was certainly one to watch in the fashion world.

Anita Darling Ubhi boasts an extensive CV and experience that most women in the fashion industry would envy, but it was hard work and dedication, mixed with passion and Anita’s entrepreneurial skills that deservedly got her where she is today.

A Fashion Stylist & Critique of all things Stylish and Eclectic – Anita Darling has an eye for the finer things in life from fashion to art and has been trained in her craft at the London College of Fashion.

“I have always been a collector, whether it’s little bits of advice from world-renowned experts in the Fashion & Beauty industry, or magazines, jewellery, shoes, random bits here and there, feathers and even anything sparkly – whatever – it’s all pure gold to me. And I love scribbling it all down in my notebook…so I thought, why not share it with everyone…? My website includes everything from Fashion, Beauty, Books and Art and there are Designer features, Interviews and Reviews. Readers can also send in pictures if they wish…”


Whilst studying Fashion Design & Management at the London College of Fashion, Anita Darling began working as a Fashion Consultant at Luxury Designer boutique, Nanette Lepore. As a designer to the stars, Nanette was quick to pick up on Anita’s passion and knowledge in the industry and quickly made her Personal Stylist at the boutique. A number of celebrities from Kate Moss to Victoria Beckham visited and were styled and dressed by Anita. From this Anita began to receive a number of personal shopping requests and with clientele quickly growing, she left the boutique in 2008 to focus on working as a Fashion Stylist. Since, Anita Darling has had a number of high-end clients that she has styled for as well as a number of publications that her styling work has been featured in.

Even I have been styled by and worked with Anita 🙂 And it really was a pleasure working with her; very innovative and sure of what she wants, but still very sweet and friendly.

In March 2011 Anita Darling was awarded Best Fashion Blog by Harrods of London and her site has now been nominated in the Online Fashion Awards 2011.

Victoria Beckham; AW/10 SS/11 review

September 14, 2010 1 comment

Victoria Beckham; style icon, fashionista, hot innovative designer…right? It was brought to my attention by my stylist, Nasima to peep her AW/10 and SS/11 collection. She complained that the pieces were rather plain, and, after taking a look for myself, unfortunately I had to agree.

What do you think? Are they selling simply because of her name? Or is she setting trends?

Here are some of my favourites, but if I’m honest, very few of them scream “WOW” to me… However, what I have picked is pretty hot…

My ultimate faves are 99; The Optical print flare dress, 89; The V-neck bell dress, 95; The panelled waist, floor length dress, 92; The Sculptured Obi dress and 60; the blood red folded neck, rib jersey dress.

What are yours?
