From a composer who has worked with Dior to a choreographer who is currently the face of an Yves Saint Laurent men’s cologne it is impossible to attend Royal New Zealand Ballets triple bill NYC and ignore the fashion.

I took my chances queuing for ‘Tix for twenty’ in the last week of the NZ Festival. After an hour of queuing and freezing my a$$ off lady-luck proved not to be on my side that day. Bitch. However by the time I threw in the towel and admitted defeat I had caught a bad case of Festival Fever.

Picture a wedding dress in your mind’s eye. Is it white? An off the shoulder number, perhaps a strapless bodice and floor length flowing full skirt? I bet it is exactly that dress. Because today’s modern bride seems to be stuck in a cookie cutter vortex of never ending repetitious strapless whiter-than-white tulle confections.

The vintage goodies were shown alongside Mandatory & Starfish and the iconic Wellington label Ashley Fogel.

Each season for the past three or so years I have teamed up with Westfield Queensgate (or as I fondly refer to them ‘my local’) to present the latest looks of the season. We have covered everything from boho to sport luxe.

Presenting the ZM and Westfield Style Session is always fun and because it is live there is always something that can and will go wrong. This time it was that my head set microphone was brand new and wasn’t wearing its fluffy cover thing (what is that called?!) so every time I breathed it sounded like Darth Vader was on stage with me.

Amelia Earhart was not only a pioneer of the skies, but she led the world as a fashion icon of her time. As she circumnavigated the globe, the women of the World were quick to adopt her unique spin on fashion. This winter we are all about to be inspired by her androgynous adventurous sense of style because Amelia is taking off all over again as almost every store adopts a little bit of Amelia’s look and makes it their own.

The prospect of jetting off to Auckland for a one on one interview with an international fashion megastar such as Collette Dinnigan is an exciting thing to wake up to on a wet and windy Wednesday morning. Deciding what to wear is the daunting part because it only takes one mistakenly hideous outfit to make a bad first impression.

Married life and all the daily mind-numbing irritations of parenting, aging or any other type of right-between-the-eyes reality have NOT stopped SATC II from being as fabulous as the TV show ever was. Yet sadly, it has become the movie that every movie reviewer loves to loathe. I'd like to be able to say "Don't believe the hype." but, in this case, it is quite the opposite....

It is always good for me to eat a slice of humble pie. I had a particularly delicious piece yesterday – involving a stunning red velvet bias cut 1930’s dress - that had me laughing out loud at myself in a downtown fitting room.
