I went to a fabulous event last week with fellow blogger buddy, Rachael Oku of Creative Idle called Masters of Style. This was a brilliant preview and press party for this new exhibition at Somerset House, and we were tres flattered to be invited and mingle among the fashion elite. Curated and (on the night), hosted by fashion historian, commentator and journalist for the Sunday Times, Colin McDowell; this groundbreaking exhibition marks the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification. Masters of Style brought together six of the nation’s most influential fashion houses to celebrate the stories behind Italian fashion’s emergence on the international stage. Synonymous with the variety, style, originality, workmanship and high quality of the Made in Italy label, the six iconic design houses under the spotlight are Armani, Missoni, Gucci, D&G, Prada and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Whilst enjoying gorgeous canapes and champagne (we bypassed the Peroni beers, one of the events sponsors of the night), we had a mooch around the exhibition, which consisted of each of the designers choosing their favourite campagins from their back catalogues, and showcasing them in little individual enclosures. It was amazing to see which campaigns the designers treasured, and offered so much insight into the designer's inspirations.
Firstly, the beautiful and talented Anne Hathaway, who in my eyes is one of Hollywood's most gorgeous and watchable actresses, covers Harpers Bazaar. The actress looks demure and stunning on the cover, and in the fashion shoot, she wears a beautiful palette of reds and creams which is bang on for the new season. The mag hits the newstands of July 12th, so make sure you grab yourself a copy!

Finally, I love this cover for Vogue's August issue. Kate Moss looks young, fresh and ever so slightly fairy like! The outfit, hair and make up all work really well for the newly married super model and she looks more like she did in her glory days...working the super model look again! Well done Kate, married life obviously agrees with you!
