I know it looks easy, this gig. Casting around for someone who's put her clothes on the right way. How hard can it be? Well, I tell you, folks, some weeks the women of the world just don't make the effort.
Or they do and it's too flouncy or too slutty or too monochrome stripy (bored already!) or too head-to-toe designer at said designer's party.
As a woman who lives, works and gets dressed in the real world all I'm looking for is an inspiring woman who looks like she does the same. That's all. But some days, and I'll say it again, it's hard.
However, this week, in amongst the style detritus of Geri Halliwell's knee-high boots and some particularly painful red carpet numbers I found a little glint of loveliness.
