What better way to take advantage of this beautiful weather than to sail down the Thames on a 1920s-inspired yacht chartered by whisky brand Johnnie Walker Blue Label?
Hosted by Spectator Life‘s Olivia Cole and male model of the moment/JW brand ambassador David Gandy, we cruised past London’s most iconic landmarks for a whisky tasting evening to remember (or forget!).
Olivia wore an amazing Armani dress which I loved, and David looked really slick in his midnight blue three-piece. I thought singer/songwriter Mr Hudson looked incredibly cool in his blue suit and matching sunglasses.
I wore a sheer top by Danish designer Julie Fagerholt, which I paired with an orange patterned mini from Topshop. I actually bought the other parts of my outfit en-route to the party: orange Marc Jacobs heels which toned in perfectly with my skirt, and necklaces from Wendy Mink and Pink Powder.

Luxury shoe brand Lele Pyp officially opened their first UK store in London’s Mayfair, so I went with my super cool singer-songwriter friend Aura Dione to take a look at what the Swiss brand had to offer.
Set up by three sisters in 2008, this relatively young brand is creating waves within the industry and can already count Kate Moss as a fan. The store looked gorgeous and the shoes even more so – I couldn’t resist picking myself up a pair of stylish tan heels from their Spring/Summer 2013 collection.
As usual, Aura looked completely fabulous and funky: I’m in love with her Missoni trainers! I wore a gold Philip Lim skirt, a green body from Wolford, Carven sleeveless blouse, Sergio Rossi heels and Bottega Veneta sunglasses.

Petra Nemvoca was the guest of honour at Elie Saab’s Haute Couture show, which showcased the Lebanese designer’s Autumn/Winter 2013-14 Collection.
Having dressed Petra in head to toe Elie Saab for this year’s Cannes Film Festival, she once again cut a stunning figure in a blue Elie Saab dress, accessorising beautifully with gold and blue heels and a matching clutch.
Petra and I couldn’t wait to see the show and – as expected – were blown away: the wedding dress finale was out of this world. We made a quick dash backstage afterwards so that Petra could
congratulate the man himself.
Next up, and after a quick outfit change into a Fendi number for Petra – we went to the opening of the Avenue Montaigne Fendi Store, where Karl Lagerfeld and Sharon Stone both made guest appearances.
I then attended the Maison Martin Margiela show which was super cool as usual; they collaborated with Swarovski to exhibit five uniquely cut crystal pieces. I also managed to fit in a visit to see Goga Ashkenazi’s Vionnet Collection, which had some great dresses for the red carpet and editorial spreads.
Luxury jeweller Chopard hosted an event in celebration of their new partnership with the Happy Hearts Fund, launching a bracelet they designed to raise money towards rebuilding schools across the globe.
I styled Petra for this event at Chopard’s New Bond Street boutique in London, and once again she blew us all away wearing a beautiful Dolce and Gabbana dress paired with fabulous Chopard jewels.
