You might recall I recently held a contest to guess who was wearing whose shoes @ LFW ('whose shoes', 3 March). I gave a cryptic little hint: DAFFODILS. Which the cute & clever Sarra, the Swiss Miss of 'Today I Like..' figured out! I really admire how her mind works. In her own words:
"First i thought, i have to look for narciso rodriguez shoes, because "daffodil" means narzisse in german or narciso in italian. but i realized quickly that he ain't british! :-) so then i kept looking for a shoe called daffodil and found one from rupert sanderson. then i checked his spring 2010 collection et voila, there she was! estelle! ;-) I was looking, if i would find some front row pictures with someone wearing these shoes... but i couldn't find out who wore them. would you tell me!? or would you give another hint? maybe i could find out! I loved looking for the shoe! (am i crazy!?) :-) "
No, you are not crazy, Sarra. Far from it. But then Mr. Dot got involved, suggesting that altho she's clearly the winner of the contest, I should still give her a multiple choice for the 2nd part. If anyone reading this wants to help Sarra win Part Two, please feel free to contribute.
The wearer of Sanderson's beautiful Estelle sandals, in my favourite colour, a kind of pale turquoise, or celadon, is:
a) a well known WAG (Wife and/or Girlfriend of a rich football player)
b) the wife of a deposed dictator with a penchant for expensive shoes
c) the editor of vogue.com
d) a beautiful young British actress recently up for an Oscar
Fingers on buzzers please.
As, through freak coincidence, Sarra & her Man were visiting London from Switzerland last weekend (lovely post about it here), we were trying to plan to meet so I could give her a free Primrose Hill cupcake as a prize, but we all got busy & then we were away on the weekend itself, so Sarra has come up with a clever alternative prize. Meanwhile speaking of cupcakes, Jen of Style Crusader has organised a Cupcake Party, this Friday, @ noon @ Ella's in Covent Garden. All are invited to attend. Details here.
