Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend!!!

Queen Elizabeth’s impressive collection of diamonds have always fascinated me…. and I am so excited that an exclusive exhibition will be held this summer showcasing her entire collection to the public to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.

 will be part of the 2012 Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace from 30 June to 7 October.

The event will include an unprecedented display of a number of the Queen’s personal jewels that have been either inherited or acquired during her reign. It will also reveal how many of these extraordinary stones have undergone a number of transformations, have been re-cut or incorporated into new settings during their fascinating history and will also feature the many ways in which her diamonds have been used by British monarchs over the last 200 years….

This is my very favorite set from the royal collection

Aren’t they just fabulous? If you are in London during this time make sure you go and have a look!!!

Karl Lagerfeld’s Commentary on the Queen’s Jubilee!!!

Karl Lagerfeld will be a fashion commentator on the France 2 network live during Queen Elizabeth’s jubilee this June…..Lagerfeld previously commentated on William and Kate’s wedding last year for the same network…. I loved it … Though his comments were sometimes a bit rude, they were really funny!!!…..For example, when he saw Princess Beatrice he said “Where did she find that hat, in a bin? It’s atrocious,” and I remember him saying “It looks like she’s wearing a sofa on her back!’ on another attendee’s tapestry coat!!!…I guess it’s more acceptable when old people say stuff like that? … In any case, he was more entertaining than any other commentator that day!!!
