The party is underway for our 15th birthday issue and, with these stunning special-occasion pieces, I’m alla set to celebrate in style.
DRESS TO IMPRESS
When I’m dressing up, my philosophy is the same as it is for my day-to-day wardrobe, just with more glamour! I always look for clothes that feel classic, but with a modern update, and I couldn’t be happier with this dazzling black floral lurex dress. The design, with a low V-neckline and fitted wide waistband, is wonderfully elegant, and I love how when I’m moving through the room the floor-length pleated skirt reveals a subtle glimpse of the gorgeous, glittering midnight blue shoes.
I love inventing a new cocktail for my parties and this year Patrón Silver tequila has a starring role in my lychee and vanilla tequila martini (see page 77 for the recipe). This limited-edition bottle, with Patrón’s signature bee in handcrafted pewter, looks spectacular on the drinks station. Adding to the fun are the sterling silver bubble blower and party hat from Tiffany & Co. I wore the hat for a sneaky hour in the office while preparing this issue – it certainly added to the air of celebration!
My day-to-day skincare keeps me ready for any occasion, and the Revitalizing Supreme range from Estée Lauder is my go-to – I can always depend on it leaving my skin looking and feeling great. And if my skin is a little stressed, I just add the Advanced Night Repair Ampoules to my routine – they’re like magic!
A LITTLE SPARKLE
To complete my look, I’ve turned to the understated elegance of these classic diamond bracelets. Whether I wear just one or a few, they add the perfect timeless flourish.
