Saturday 26th March witnessed the second HauteMuse Magazine's Designer Shopping event in collaboration with fabulous Iman Pasha & MatchesFashion of London. Hosted in the glamourous Le Crillon Ballroom of La Cigla Hotel-Doha, Qatar became home to four incredibly talented, contemporary London based designers. Mary Katrantzou, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Ilincic and Holly Fulton showcased their Autumn/ Winter 2011 collections to V.I.P guests and Qatari royalty.
It was such a pleasure to attend this event considering Celine, YSL & Christopher Kane were hung around every corner! I also got to meet and talk to all the designers, and they were such a delight! It really is amazing when you meet people you look up to, and find so incredibly inspirational.
Mary Katrantzou, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Ilincic and Holly Fulton are some of my favourite London based designers and getting to chat with each of them about their collections really was a dream come true! I wont keep you waiting any longer, here are the pictures from the dazzling night!

Lady Gaga on the cover of "The Exhibitionist" Issue of I.D Magazine shot by the brilliant Mariano Vivanco and styled by Nicola Formichetti. I'm a big Vivanco fan, I loved some of his earlier work for turkish Vogue and Dolce & Gabanna, so It's so great to have him shoot such an influential celebrity for I.D Magazine.
Bill Cunningham is a legendary photographer and I was so excited when I heard about this documentary! It was released two days ago in the United States, SO it will probably take a while till it makes its way down to the middle east but I really can't wait to see it! Check out the trailer below. This is one you won't want to miss trust me!

Net-a-porter goes around this week to ask the likes of Leighton Meester and Giovanna Battaglia how many shoes they've got in their closets! I always recommend a dose of shoe retail therapy. Could a girl really have too many pairs of shoes? :)

The talented Ms Keira Knightley stars in her second ad campaign for Coco Mademoiselle shot by Mario Testino. Check out this sensational short film with Keira Knightley and Alberto Ammann. Directed by Joe Wright with "It's a man's man's man's world" performed by Joss Stone in the background it sure blew me away!
A cinched waistline is all the rave this season. I'm a big fan of this look because I really believe it accentuates femininity. Definitely a season must-have girls, so make sure your closets don't go without a cinched waistline!
