MOST STYLISH HOTEL

THE BILTMORE HOTEL , LONDON

This recently opened Hotel in September this year after two years of renovations , now getting into its stride it has now made it onto the Style List after my recent visit. This is a little gem in the heart of Mayfair located in Grosvenor Square a stones throw from Claridges and the fabulous New Bond Street shopping. Jason Atherton overseeing the cuisine in Betterment the Hotels rather lovely and spacious restaurant and an equally sumptuous bar – The Pine Bar. Stylishly cool and still largely still undiscovered the quietness added to the overstated elegance. From £400 ppp night.

MOST STYLISH RESTAURANT

SCOTTS, MAYFAIR

A frequent visitor to SCOTTS in Mayfair it is consistent in both food and service. At this time of year it is particularly stylish with the most beautiful christmas decorations of any restaurant I know. I tend to go for my favourite fish, Skate with shrimp and an ice cold glass of Chablis and this week was once again exceptional. Super classy and I could put it on the Style List every month but at this time of year it is especially so exudes christmas from a Hollywood film set.

TERRY O NEILL

This must go to the lovely TERRY O NEILL whom I was lucky to meet on a few occasions, we had the greatest conversations and invariably ended up in LUIGIS Deli on of Terrys favourite places for great Italien food. His death this month was no surprise as he had been ill for some time but I hoped he would make one more Christmas. Terry s exhibition at the Iconic Gallery Chelsea makes you realise what an amazing stylish and exciting life he led for someone so normal and unassuming. A truly talented photographer and a wonderful man. You will be missed. Legend.

TOM FORD SKIN ILLUMINATINGPOWDER DUO

OK , so everything about TOM FORD is stylish and my followers will know that im a MASSIVE fan of all things TF (even his films). But put this on your christmas list ! I love ‘Flicker’ it is for darker skin but i find it works well on mine as I use the darker colour for contouring and the gold for highlighting. The sleek platte with mirror – perfect for touch ups during the evening and great for the party season ! I apologise if this has made a previous Style List but just needs to be on repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

SIR BOYD TUNNOCK

Following his knighthood this month , the inventor of TUNNOCKS TEACAKES cannot be left off this months Style List. Along with the Queen this is my treat of choice . Satisfying yet calorie light (105calories) light fluffy marsmallow on a biscuit base covered in a thin layer of chocolate it is enough. Beautifully wrapped in that iconic red and silver foil. The TUNNOCKS CARAMEL WAFER cannot go unnoticed.

Tunnock Teacake. Yummy !

THE STYLE LIST OCTOBER

WHAT WAS HOT IN OCTOBER. SEE WHO MADE IT ONTO THE LIST ………..

MOST STYLISH HOTEL

THE EDITION WEST HOLLYWOOD

Located on the corner of Sunset Blvd and Doheny Drive. LA at its finest uber cool and super stylish. The Edition brand was conceived and the space designed by Ian Schrager in conjunction with Marriott with hip hotels in London, New York, Barcelona,Miami but new hotels planned for Asia. Now open for business in the last few weeks be one of the first to stay in this flagship West Coast Hotel.

MOST STYLISH BEAUTY PRODUCT

TEOXANE ADVANCED FILLER MOISTERISER

I was lucky enough to receive this in a goody bag (full sized) at the launch of the new MEDISPA at Harvey Nichols in September. I am hooked , visibly plumping and firming. Stylish packaging. Scientifically proven range of aesthetic products winning global awards and recognition. I personally had not heard of them prior to the event but I will definitely be buying more for £60 ! Love to share these beauty finds with you i’m extra critical of false promises but equally like to tell you when I find a good one. Try it yourself and let me know what you think.

MOST STYLISH PERSON

NICHOLAS COLERIDGE CBE

I was lucky enough to attend Nicholas Coleridge soiree at the V&A Museum of which he is Chairman as well as still the current chairman of Conde Nast magazine. The evening was to promote his new book THE GLOSSY YEARS of which I can firmly say is a hoot of a read. An insight into the world of style, it is a book to get really lost in. The man himself an epitome of style and very charming in that old Etonian spirit. Both book and person win the style award for October.

MOST STYLISH FASHION

NAVY

This season instead of opting for black as the nights draw in try substituting it for navy. Navy always looks more expensive opt for a little navy dress instead of a little black dress. There is a return to more ladylike dressing of a bygone era especially for our age group. It is time to get sophisticated again and I always think of navy as being one of the most sophisticated of colours especially teamed with pearls . Choose the palette of navy to suit your colouring, of course.

MOST STYLISH FILM

JUDY

Well this one wins hands down for style. The bio pic of Judy Garland as portrayed by the wonderful Renee Zellweger. Whatever you thought of the film it was indeed very glamorous and indulgent perfect for a rainy afternoon at the cinema followed by cocktails at The Ritz. This film made me want to back to that era so wesat at the bar drinking champage from saucer shaped glasses and drinking Aviation cocktails.

WHATS NOT HOT……..

HUSTLERS

The week before we saw this Jennifer Lopez movie in contrast was an utter pile of tripe. Naive and cliched and over acted with a shallow script, and I say this as a J-Lo fan. 1/10.

STYLE LIST

HOT…….OR NOT. WHO MADE THE STYLE LIST

This week I attended two new venue openings, pre birthday girly lunch and the Shergar Cup at Ascot Races.

URBAN RETREAT at THE WHITE HOUSE opened its doors this week with a fabulous party. URBAN RETREAT previously located within Harrods has now opened on a site 2-4 Hans Crescent Knightsbridge. Five storeys full of beauty treatment rooms, nail bar,hair salon, bars and restaurant. One giant playroom to spend the day with the girls …or boys.

FlavoUR is the destination restaurant serving natural and healthy food all day long. They have all the top beauty and haircare brands here too numerous to mention. Lots of opening special offers. Until 31st August 2019 Quote LASER30 to receive 30% off skin rejuvenation and hair laser removal treatments with the award winning Soprano Titanium laser technology.

It certainly is a good idea has not quite made the STYLE LIST today as I need to visit a few more times to test the service out but promising. You have to consistently be outstanding and luxe to make this list. So watch this space….

The Upstairs bar
Treatment Room
Pedicure Station
Hair Salon

ON 5 Ascot racecourse premier restaurant located in the Queen Annes enclosure is a real treat. Exquisite food and service that can match ANY michelin star restaurant. In addition simply the best view of the racing and spectacular views from this uber stylish fifth floor restaurant. With its own sun terrace and huge balcony. Always treated like a VIP here. Open for every race event. Prices from £170 pp contact the racecourse directly. Definitely made the STYLE LIST.

Hake with Mussels and Chorizo

Piccolinos Virginia Water was the venue for my girly pre birthday lunch this week. A firm favourite and a regular at this superb Italian restaurant . Pepe and his amazing team always ensure great food and service. A massive retractable roof rather like the one on Centre Court at Wimbledon so open air dining always makes me feel I am on holiday. DJ play great tunes Friday and Saturday. Great place for al fresco lunch with the girls. I recommend the seafood risotto !! Definitely on the STYLE LIST .

Birthday Aperitifs

BE Lounge Kensington was the second launch in London this week on the same evening but thankfully around the corner from Urban Retreat. Opposite the Natural History Museum so you can indulge in some art in the same afternoon. I would definitely come here for coffee and pastries and there ARE some wonderful Arabic pastries. But need a few more visits before it makes the STYLE LIST !!

BE LOUNGE

Stay tuned for future Style List picks or let me know if YOU have any you want to share ???
