The definition of the classic sex bomb: Amy Willerton

Rocking a pair of denim cut-offs and a sleek blazer laid against the bare skin, with her tresses whipped into messy waves and her hazel eyes smoked out and kohl lined, Amy Willerton comes to embody the definition of the classic bombshell: sultry, sexy, but polished and beautiful at the same time.

Clean white minimalism (courtesy Nicole Warn). Boyish tailoring (thank you Doina Ciobanu). Elegant safari (looking at you, Angelica Ardasheva).

Impossibly elegant and devastatingly beautiful, designer Jessica Choay creates a spring / summer 2014 collection that not only exudes a sense of natural femininity that would bring a sense of envy to even the most delicate of women, but also emanates a raw sexuality as only a woman can wear it.

What makes an outfit catch the eye? It might be the colour, the luxuriousness, the body underneath or the attitude of the person wearing it.

You know that a holiday destination is good when Mother Nature decides to be the polar opposite of what you had dreamed of, and yet you still enjoy your time there. With a week’s vacation planned at Sri Panwa, a luxury resort west of Phuket, in my mind’s eye I knew how everything would…

Photo diary: Phuket around Aleenta; November 2013

Postcards from a fashioniser around Aleenta. By Daniel P Dykes. The mention of Phuket, Thailand, is likely to conjure up images beautiful beaches and exquisite islands. Or perhaps, depending on your youth, cheap bars and raucous clubs. Head north out of Phuket, however, and stick to the West of the mainland and you’ll soon find yourself in Phangnga.

The dress that dances: Jessica Choay

Pretty in photos but impossibly gorgeous in reality, Jessica Choay‘s dresses have a life of their own. Like this ruby red one I wore during Paris fashion week, made from shifting panels of the softest silk. You don’t wear it, it floats around your body. It doesn’t just move, it dances. The other spectacular thing about pieces of such beautiful quality is that they don’t…
