Wang then showed a surprise collaboration with Adidas, in a finale full of slightly tweaked sportswear the brand is known for: track pants, golf polos, rip-away athletic pants and basketball shorts. They were all done in jet black with the Adidas logo flipped upside down.

After a long few weeks of travelling and preparing for the busy fall season, I jetted back to Greece to spend time on the beautiful island of Mytilene. My entire family were there so it was great to spend time with them all.

I loved catching up with my sister and enjoying the amazing Greek freddos !

Serpentine Summer Party & House Festival

So proud that Rodial was the Official Beauty Sponsor for the legendary Serpentine Summer Party this year. My team did such an incredible job in creating our Rodial Makeup Studio. Guests enjoyed make up touch ups with our talented makeup artists throughout the evening.

It was great to meet Tommy Hilfiger who was also sponsoring the party and also Toni Garn who looked super cute in her blazer & shorts combo. The event always brings fabulous outfits – Winnie Harlow looked fab in her Balmain blue paisley min skirt with matching jacket.

I wore a vintage black gown with Givenchy bag and Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

Summer has begun …

Having just returned from another trip to NYC , for secret filming project #2, I wanted to share what  I have been up to over the past weeks…

 As a Patron of the British Fashion Council, I am proud to be mentoring their young Emerging Talent. We invited 15 young designers to come to Rodial HQ for a Digital Workshop – they all left with practical ideas and tips of how to grow their online presence of their fashion brands.

Summer Party season has begun … I was thrilled to attend the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party. I love to keep up with the art scene. This exhibition is always great at showcasing a variety of work in all media, including painting, sculpture, photography and film. A definite must-see!

I wore a coral red Christopher Kane dress to honour Christopher, who was part of the committee.

From here, and after a quick change of outfits! I went to join Erin O’Connor and the fabulous Jimmy Choo team at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards. Erin presented an award to Sandra Choi, the brilliant Creative Director at Jimmy Choo. The highlight of the evening was from legendary actress, Susan Sarandon, on accepting her Glamour inspiration Award.

I had to glam it up for the awards and wore a rose gold Balmain dress.
