Viva Italia!

Pink and white blooms in Kensington en route to see the newly-opened show at the V&A: The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014. On display are around 100 ensembles and accessories by leading Italian fashion houses including Simonetta, Pucci, Sorelle Fontana, Valentino, Gucci, Missoni, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Marni, Fendi, Prada and Versace, through to the next generation of fashion talent. The most eye-dazzling display was the extraordinary set of emerald and diamond jewels, once owned by Elizabeth Taylor, and made by Bulgari, sponsors of this exhibition. To match the theme of Italian fashion, I decided to wear a vintage Roberto Cavalli dress, complete with simple, yet classy, black accessories, from my vintage velvet bag, to my Russell & Bromley heels.
