Last month I was asked to feature in Grazia for Gucci at the Grand Prix Show jumping event in Al Forsan Internationl sports resort in Abu Dhabi. Of course, I gladly accepted the exciting offer of being dressed up in the label loved by the likes of Salma Hayek, Jessica Biel and Li Bing Bing.
Before the day I was taken to the Gucci store in Mall of the Emirates where I tried on a few outfits from the latest collection. I chose to wear a beautiful floaty floral one sided dress, with cute nude suede shoes, a floppy hat and matching bag.
On the day we were picked up ‘Gucci style’ and escorted to the event. Here are some pics from behind the scenes…
All made up, dressed up and ready to shoot…
And here is the article itself..
Many thanks to Gucci and Grazia for the fabulous feature, pampering and lovely day out!
It is one thing to look at art and admire it, it is another thing to wear it and become it
Chinese Fashion designer Guo Pei has stolen my heart today… her creations are magical.
Artistic and beautiful….. it’s my dream to wear clothes this iconic on stage!
I always loved the label DSQUARED2.
I cant say i own any ..yet .. still a bit out of my budget… but I want some badly.
So, earlier I was checking out their new collection.
and 2 things sprung to mind: HOT BOYS. and HOT HEELS.
What great marketing.
Hot boys, we really don’t see enough of in the media.
Bring it on!
Womens bodies are so 20th century!
The 21st century should really be about hot men!
Bring back the Greeks
and hot heels.. well that just caught my attention.
do i need to say more?
Dubai + Vintage shopping aren’t normally words you hear in the same sentence. So I’m very excited about this:
I fell in love with vintage fashion when I was barely a teenager. There was this store called ‘The Dinosaw market” that sold second hand records, leather jackets, fur coats- but best of all, authentic platform heels from the 60′s & 70′s.
We also had bargain charity shops full of £1 records and £5 vintage coats.
(people at Hereford 6th form college will know Martha Trust already )
One day I want to own my own little vintage store, play old records, read and dress up as different characters throughout the day…
… my friends and I have been known to do that for fun already
One day it will happen
Here are the directions:
See you there!
