This of course means I am particularly excited about the forthcoming Lanvin and H&M collaboration.
To tempt us, H&M are going to release a worldwide trailer, and have launched a competition to find one lucky person's blog to put it on.
And I'd like it to be mine! So I am asking you (and ANYONE else you can persuade to - it only takes seconds!) to please vote for me by literally clicking on the button at the top of my blog!!
Plus I also believe you can share it on Facebook, and you can vote as many times as you like!
Thank you lovely readers!

With a typically dramatic gold feathered headdress scraping high above her head, Lady G stepped out in a pair of snakeskin armadillo shoes, (having had plenty of practice walking in them for her Bad Romance vid) and the flowing printed chiffon number, and I think, looked completely fabulous.
While still being suitably outrageous, her look is a chic foray into the world of classy dressing. Now that's probably a boring place to be for such a lady, one who wears lobsters on her head and dresses made out of origami.
But I think she looks amazing, so come on, lets shut up about the meat, (on the grounds it will be in the bin anyway now I hope...) and focus on this, as it may just be Gaga's best look to date.

Yes, I am wearing my wellies not my fabulous boots, but give me my due, I was in the sea at the time! And I did wear my boots, when we arrived to the village where we were stopping for lunch. No one told me a walk up to the top of a waterfall was included in lunch...
I walked up the big hill perfectly well and the six inch heels only made for a better view at the summit.

Firstly there’s denim which popped up embellished, bleached and in the ubiquitous “jegging”… Oh and we can’t leave out the controversial foray back into the 70’s world of double denim, a move that left the fashion pack completely divided. While some praised the bravery and confidence of wearers, others saw it as a fashion car crash. Then there’s bleached denim, which, for me, proved a summer staple mainly in shorts and shirts. Embellished metallic jeans seemed like an interesting concept but in reality only took off on the Balmain catwalk, however an inch or two of roll up at the bottom of your jeans was definitely the most foolproof and fabulous way to update your look. Lastly, pretending to be denim - jeggings… I’ll leave you to remember them how you will!
Without a doubt, the biggest success story of summer trends was the pastel colour palette with fashionistas up and down the country stylishly modelling themselves on ice cream sundaes and bags of pick and mix. With shades that flattered everyone, this was one trend that was unavoidable no matter how hard you tried. And even if you weren’t convinced by the clothes, candy coloured nail polish was an easy and chic way to tap into the trend.
Finally for shoes, we had clogs. They were an interesting one. After Chanel sent its brave takes down the runway, everyone was talking about the return of the clog. Then Alexa Chung appears on the cover of Vogue sporting said Chanel pair and the hysteria only builds. With advice popping up left, right and centre as to how to wear them and clogs being dubbed as “the only shoe to wear this season” it seemed like they were going to become just that. Though I think looking back now, they were actually more of a minority trend than was intended. Creeping up from behind, from the Sport Luxe trend, were shoe boots with missing heels and peep toes, which overshadowed the remodelled clogs. And though I did hear them branded stupid and pointless, they completely took off and were the easy footwear of choice for summer in flat, wedge and heel styles! I loved my perforated lace up wedge boots and will be wearing them right into autumn teamed with my classic trench coat. That said I loved my clogs too, they were far comfier than they looked, but they still didn’t get worn as much as my boots…
