Karl Lagerfeld presented the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 in the garden of the Château de Versailles. He knows how to combine modern design and classic chic like no one else, and he’s probably the only person who can dress a model in a skirt and trainers and get away with it. We saw cute chiffon dresses as well as jeans, shorts and the famous tweed jackets. Most of the dresses looked like 18th century rococo chic.
I’ve done a photo illustration of her before, but wanted to add Carrie to my ‘Blogger Drawings’, pencil portraits of various bloggers I love. I still really enjoy reading her blog and looking at her beautiful photos. If I had to choose a favourite blog post on her blog, I wouldn’t be able to decide, because they’re all so amazing.

The Burberry Prorsum AW12 show was hands down the best show at London Fashion Week. Fake rain and thunder, music by Marina and the Diamonds (‘Numb’) and a front row like no other. The collection itself is fabulous. It’s chic and playful and I love it! Which is the reason why I chose two of my favourite Burberry AW12 pieces to illustrate.
