Rochas Spring/Summer 2013

When it comes to Fashion Week they really do save the best until last. Paris Fashion Week is the epitome of style and this season the Rochas SS13 show offered just that; A stunning showcase of out and out luxury in the most covetable collection of the season. Fun, flirty and feminine, Marco Zanini offered a glamorous Fifties story in bright white, champagne and lavender hues. Satin slip dresses and belted pencil skirts were given a sporty twist with cute collared polo shirts and white lace up boots. Decorative bralets were worn with matching knicker shorts and billowing pleated chiffon skirts. Bowler bags, visors and white circle frames finished off the look while models sported center parted hair and statement red lips.

Models Own Pink Fizz Manicure

Models Own is one of my favourite high street nail polish brands, I love the amazing range of playful colours on offer and at £5 a pop they're fairly reasonably priced. The polishes themselves are easy to apply, quick drying and impressively hardwearing for a high street brand. I've found my collection growing considerably over the last few months, and with their latest Summer Sale I fear this is a trend that is set to continue. This week's colours of choice were Nude Beige and Pink Fizz...

I began with a base coat to even and protect my nails, then applied a double coat of Nude Beige. Every girl loves a bit of glitter so I decided to enhance my nude nails with a smattering of Pink Fizz; one of my all time favourties.

Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2013

Emilio Pucci showed a romantic collection of delicate embroidered dresses for Spring/Summer 2013. A beautiful marble runway played host to angelic sheers, split paneled maxi skirts and oriental inspired jackets. I love the intricate luxury of the entire collection, from the lace inserts to the baroque gold platforms.

Moschino Spring/Summer 2013

Moschino kicked off Milan Fashion Week proceedings with an animated collection for Spring/Summer 2013. Continuing the monochrome trend that emerged from both New York and London, Moschino showcased a beautifully graphic collection of humbug stripes and sixties inspired pieces with an equestrian edge. Double breasted jackets, leather gloves and bright white riding hats complimented mirrored mini dresses and Mary Quant pelmet skirts...

The Body Shop All-In-One BB Cream

The BB Cream phenomenon swept the blogosphere in 2011 and since has become one of the biggest beauty trends of the year, leaving almost every blogger with a version of the Asian Beauty Balm in their cosmetics bag. I recently decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about but after visiting various beauty counters and testing different forms of the BB cream, I felt that nothing really deserved to replace my beauty serum, primer or concealer as promised.

However, after seeing the hype surrounding the release of The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream last month I decided to give it a try. Unlike many other beauty balms the All-In-One BB Cream offers colour adapting capsules that transform when applied to the skin. After playing around with the testers I opted for the 02 Medium Skin Tone as I felt it best complimented my warm skin tone.

I got my BB Cream home and instantly began experimenting. With only a small amount, the tinted BB Cream offers a light, overall coverage with a dewy and undetectable finish, acting as a really great make-up base or as a tinted moisturiser in the warmer months. I found I received the strongest results using a blusher brush to apply and buff the cream into my skin, it offered a stronger colour match and resulted in a much more even finish.

I really love how light the product both looks and feels on my skin and at £12 it's an absolute steal! Besides the fact there's no SPF, The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream will definitely be my go-to for flawless summer skin. For now though I'll be using it as a great hydrating make-up base.

Have any of you been using The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream? Let me know your thoughts!

Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2013

I think it's fair to say that Burberry Prorsum has to be one of the most sought after shows during London Fashion Week. With the hottest runways models - Cara Delevingne I'm looking at you, and the elite star-studded 'frow' to match, the luxury brand constantly upholds it's aspirational British heritage. I signed in to Burberry.com with my interactive invite and as always, Burberry Prorsum completely stole my heart!

Christopher Baily showcased a flawless Spring/Summer 2013 collection of decadent fabrics, metallics and shapes. Ruched metallic bodices and satin pencil skirts were paired with cropped bolero capes and bell sleeved bomber jackets. The trademark Burberry Trench came in cashmere, opulent lace and luxe metallics, tied tight at the waist with fine silk belts. Bright whites contrasted a beautifully rich colour palette, while models showed off the modern Burberry woman with smouldering siren red lips and perfectly tousled waves. I am in love.

Topshop Unique Spring/Summer 2013

This season, the Topshop Unique girl has grown up. Since Kate Phelan took the helm as Creative Director, the brand has taken a new direction, focusing purely on design aesthetic and offering real luxury as opposed to playful gimmicks. Spring/Summer 2013 showcased a sophisticated and futuristic collection, experimenting with shape, texture and the use of clashing graphic prints - already proving a huge trend for the SS13. The sharp monochrome collection comprised printed silk jumpsuits - an updated version of the look we saw at Autumn/Winter '12, various cut out paneled dresses, sequins, PVC and structured oversized outerwear. Add Cara Delevingne, metallic accessories and a sprinkle of Topshop Make-up and you have the perfect collection...

Felder Felder Spring/Summer 2013

Felder Felder are always amongst my Fashion Week favourites, consistently providing wearable pieces injected with a hint of attitude for good measure. This season saw sisters Dani and Annette Felder produce a much softer and more refined collection for Spring/Summer 2013. Leather came much thinner than usual and was paired with suede, chiffon and lace for a much more relaxed, feminine look. Chiffon flippy skirts and cute swimwear cover ups came in muted pastels with only hints of black and navy blue running throughout the entire collection. Even models seemed more feminine with perfectly straight center parted hair, dark winged liner and nude lips giving a nod to the Sixties. The sisters however, managed to hold onto their notorious grunge edge in the use of unfinished hems, broken butterfly prints and sheer polo neck crop tops... not forgetting the small matter of Kate Nash's live performance. Another fabulous Felder Felder show.

Sass & Bide Spring/Summer 2013

Sass & Bide's Spring/Summer 2013 collection was a modern romantic story of masculine meets feminine. Sharp tailored jackets, cravats and lace up brogues were juxtaposed with delicate feathered mini dresses, halter necks, flowing chiffon skirts and extremely heavy embellishment; all in a futuristic palette of black, white and gunmetal silver. Models continued the masculine notion with scruffy side parted ponies and 'barely there' make-up, giving the entire show that effortlessly cool vibe we've come to expect from London Fashion Week.
