Laura, before the John Rocha show, in another must-have item this season: a fur gilet (& a bowler, what a lovely combination, worn with red lipstick in a smile!). I love that her gilet is by John Rocha and that she wore it for his show. That seems to me the essence of good manners, to compliment a designer by wearing his or her clothes. And English girls do have the manners thing down to a tea! : )

UPDATE: I stand corrected. An Anonymous Source has informed me that Laura is actually Irish. And yet, still, most polite!

In some cases, it's not possible to afford something by the designer (in my case) or it's just hard to plan a day with about 5 shows with one hodge podge outfit in mind... :)' which is a really interesting concept: I wonder if anyone I've seen & shot has actually done that? Pieced together a look using the various designers they were seeing that day. Alternatively, finding cheaper looks that channel the designer's work. Homages. I did notice that on the day of Christopher Kane's show, a few girls were sporting his Topshop crocodile dress. Here's another lovely gilet, as I work my way through the endless sea of shots: (I love both their looks, actually).
