This Week’s Beauty Hits and Misses

London Fashion Week
From the beautiful sheer panels at Preen, Erdem and Alice Temperley to the jewel tones at Burberry, we saw some key trends emerging for the SS13 season at London Fashion Week. I particularly loved the pastel tones and the blending of different textures and patterns – everything looked so fresh! I’ve been reinterpreting the look by revisiting my Dior 5 Couleurs in 224 Swimming Pool this week.


Natalie Portman Nude Campaign
I really can’t get enough of Natalie Portman in the new Dior Nude campaign. The new mum is the perfect endorsement to the luxurious Dior Nude foundations: absolutely beautiful and always luminous.


Duchess of Cambridge Privacy
We’ve all seen the snaps (although if you’re anything like me, you probably felt a little guilty for it afterwards). The Duchess of Cambridge has such poise and grace that those topless pictures feel like a big injustice. Not that she’s showing the strain, though – she’s handled herself in an admirable, impeccable style ever since.
