So finally the big day had arrived, and I was totally opposed to even watching the royal wedding, until my friend came to my place and forced it upon me. Posh and Beck's I felt would be my highlight. I think they were dressed so appropriately and didn't take the focus away from what that day was about. The Beckham's looked chic, regal and very much like they belonged there.
The real deal, and moment when I finally realised what the fuss, the count downs, betting pools and excitement was about, was when Katherine Middleton come out of her gorgeous Rolls Royce, looking ever so beautiful and reminiscent of the late Grace Kelly the day she married her prince. She paid homage to her country and fashion legend Alexander McQueen, by wearing Alexander McQueen on the day she was to become royalty. Sarah Burton couldn't have done a better job, she's already doing amazing things at Alexander McQueen and I can't wait to see what else she has to show.
All in all a truly beautiful wedding, and may the couple be blessed and happy.

As it happens every month, most girls and some boys go out to their local mall to go get their monthly dose of Elle and Marie Claire as I do. As I turned the cover page over one of my glossy mags, I see something some beautiful, the new Gucci campaign ad for 2011. Just Love, love, love the use of the Emerald green, ruby red, bronzy-gold and royal purple. We all know Gucci is expensive, but for the first time in a really long time, to me, now it looks expensive. I just think it's a stunning ad to look at, and hope they keep it up.
Till next time,
