Here’s some Friday fun… please set your DVR’s to catch me on Access Hollywood Live Friday, May 17th on NBC (check your local listings for air times). I’ll be the in-studio fashion expert chatting it up about Princess Kate’s maternity style. The mini-fashion show I’ve pulled together, complete with four beautiful pregnant women wearing maternity looks inspired by the lovely Royal, is not to be missed. A big thank you to my stunning models and their precious bumps: Athena, Charly and Shirin. Enjoy ya’ll!
Ever since I saw photos of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Princess Kate to us simpletons), step out in those classic nude L.K. Bennett London pumps I flipped for this ultra modern and feminine brand of shoes, handbags and clothing. One of the most popular designer brands in Europe, L.K. Bennett London is quickly storming the United States to keep up with the insatiable demand of style-savvy American women. Their latest debut…a stunning new boutique at Beverly Center in Los Angeles (with a highly anticipated opening party that I’m excited to be hosting tonight) right near Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Louis Vuitton. At last, we can finally get our hands on this must-have line. I’m loving way too many of their shoes so let me focus on those for now (I’ll get to the handbags and shoes next time): The Palma Patent Leather Strappy Sandal in Clay (this color has “wow” written all over it), Dahlia Printed Criss-Cross Sandal (double whammy – flirty and feminine), Pacific Patent Leather Bow Slingback in Blush (make the Ladies Who Lunch jealous with these), Orchid Embroidered Leather Sandal designed by London-based style icon Caroline Issa (the removable pom-poms alone!), and of course the royal favorite – Sledge Patent Leather Heel (wear these with anything). What makes me smile even more is that these shoes are made well and they wear well, which means they’ll last. And, for a coveted luxury brand they’re priced right too (an average of $350 a pair)… now that’s what you call living happily ever after!
