Indulgence For Today: Bar Refaeli for Escada

I absolutely adore the new Escada campaign!!
The stunning 26 year old Israeli model, Bar Refaeli, is the face of the Especially Escada fragrance. The campaign images were shot in a French-inspired garden in Los Angeles where flowers had been trimmed to create Escada’s iconic double E.
I could imagine Barbie and the Stepford Wives meeting for tea in this garden. Could I get an invite too please?

Indulgence For Today: 2011 LACMA Art+Film Gala

On November 5  Hollywood A –Listers walked the red carpet at the LACMA’s inaugural Art + Film Gala. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection extending from ancient times to the present. ( With this year's honourees being Clint Eastwood and artist John Baldessari, the swanky affair was co-chaired by Leonardo DiCaprio and Eva Chow. The evening boasts a guest list of some of the biggest names in the movie industry and art world and raises funds for the museum’s recently reenergized film program, which now includes exhibitions, acquisitions, educational programming, screenings, and a series called Live Read created by Jason Reitman.
Hope you agree with my favourites.
Love these flapper inspired dresses by Gucci as worn by Zoe Saldana, Camilla Belle and Evan Rachel Wood.
Kate Hudson wore a Gucci dress and Neil Lane jewelry, whilst Kate Beckinsale opted for a crisp white dress.
Both Olivia Wilde (above) and Amy Adams (below)looked gorgeous in Gucci.
Reese Witherspoon wore a sassy Cushine et Ochs design.
I always enjoy seeing happy couples in Hollywood especially given it’s high divorce rate. Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her ever supportive hubby, Rodger Berman looked phenomenal as usual.
Look it’s Dawson! (Remember the good old days??) I was pleasantly surprised by James Van Der Beek and his wife, Kimberly Brook.
Armie Hammer and Elizabeth Chambers always look sensational. (Please remember that the seams of a satin dress should never pucker.)
Oh and then I thought I would add a little eye candy to brighten up your Monday Winking smile
Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Indulgence For Today: 63rd Emmy Awards

It's not often that you see so many gorgeous looks on one red carpet. It was not just the fashion that made my heart happy, but also the fact that my favourite series, Modern Family, nearly made a clean sweep. They picked up the award for Best Comedy, along with statues for its writing, directing, supporting actor and actress.
(I'm sure that Phil would agree that Claire looked sensational!!)
I had a tough time selecting my favourites.... so here's my edited list! I reckon less writing and more pics on this rainy Cape Town Monday.
Hope you have a HAPPY DAY!

Indulgence For Today: Love + Cobain = Rock Royalty

If you were a teenager in the 90’s (and NO that doesn’t make you old!!) you’ll certainly remember Nirvana and the legendary Kurt Cobain.

Well, this year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind album. Do you remember the album cover?? I do!! I have a “memories box” and I recently found an old homework book covered in images of Nirvana and the infamous image of the swimming baby. AAAHHH! The good old days…………..

The gorgeous young lady in the images below is no other than the daughter of the tragic late rocker Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. Frances Bean Cobain celebrates her 19th birthday and it’s has been dubbed the most anticipated comings of age in recent pop cultural history.

The rock royalty offspring has marked the milestone with a stunning photoshoot with fine art photographer Rocky Schenck and Fashion Director Amina Akhtar.

We look forward to many more happy and glamorous moments in this young lady's life.

Happy Birthday Francis!

Indulgence For Today: L.C. & LO Stylish As Ever

The exceptionally stylish duo Lauren Conrad and Lauren “Lo” Bosworth teamed up for a girls’ night out. They attended the Dinosaur Ball at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles over the weekend in honour of the new exhibit.

The former “Hills” & “Laguna Beach” hotties looked fabulous in floor-length gowns as they chatted it up with press and posed for pictures together before heading inside.

L.C., 25, donned a pale pink tiered dress from her Paper Crown line and sported her trademark waves, while Lo, 25, went with a hot pink one-shoulder design and wore her hair in a sophisticated updo.

I’d like to make a request…
