We all know how much of a success Kate’s collection was when she launched it with Topshop back on the 1st of May 2007, so as you can imagine the much anticipated Autumn/Winter collection will be a sure fire hit.
The collection is released in stores and online on the 7th September 2007 and has already been previewed in The Observer Magazine last Sunday, showing a change from the signature skinny jeans to many more dresses. The new collection is confident, sexier and more original than her first collection according to Grazia Magazine.
There’s a black chiffon dress with a plunging neckline, a cute cropped leather biker jacket, a tweed three-piece suit and a lovely tan leather bag to name a few.
Unlike most celebrity clothing lines Kate’s has been the biggest success with queues ringing around the Oxford Street store in London when the collection was first released creating a press field day. Let’s hope the new collection proves to be just as good as the previous one. I loved the white, one sleeved summer dress!
Recently I have been having a total nightmare with my locks! I have coloured hair and every time I wash it I cannot comb it without a battle of many knots. Like many of you I have tried and tested loads of different shampoos, conditioners and spray in products. NONE of them worked well until I happened to stumbled upon GHD Miracle Mist when I was last at the hairdressers. Although it was quite expensive I was willing to try anything so I asked my hairdresser to test it on me after my cut so I could see the difference myself. It is heaven sent!
GHD Miracle Mist is a daily conditioning spray which cleanses and nourishes the hair right to the tip. It also strengthens the hair, leaves a glowing shine, detangles wet hair and smells lovely too.
You can purchase GHD products including the Miracle Mist which is £10.95 at www.ghdhair.com.
The ‘must have’ item in your wardrobe this season is the LBD. Perfect for every occasion from balls, cocktail parties, Christmas parties, galas, art shows and even nights out on the town. The little black dress was initially designed in the 1920’s by Coco Chanel but now seems to have acquired its own collection from many designers.
Check out Oasis’s Little Black Dress collection, the pleated banded dress is both cute and complimenting (£70). ASOS own brand LUXE has a selection of sparkly evening dresses; the Victoria embellished silk halter dress in the style of Victoria Beckham, £75 is loud and proud. Ted Baker has a few LBD’s but one stands out in particular, the Aika – a silk 60’s style mini dress with angel sleeves and high waist line (£110). Whatever the venue, whatever the weather, a little black dress is always appropriate.

With Sienna’s celebrity status and eye for fashion and Savannah’s design history in college and work history with Alexander McQueen, this range should be a sure hit.
