That's me giving a talk on British Style at the Clarks High Heel Society event in London, last week. I rarely post pictures of myself on this blog - I'm shy and wrinkly and don't like having my photo taken. But I soon started to relax when my self-imposed, two drink curfew fell by the wayside. I've got about as much willpower as a Tory party co-treasurer being offered a large donation. Anyhow. I think I was blathering on a bit, though the crowd seemed to love it - remember, they didn't have any alcohol restrictions. I discussed the timeless appeal of British brands and why they make good fashion sense, mentioned all my favourite icons like: Tilda Swinton, Vivienne Westwood, Dame Judi Dench, Kate Moss, Helena Bonham Carter, Dame Helen Mirren and gave highlights of the spring/summer shoe collection. Finishing off with some of expert tips on style at any age. As you can imagine, copious amounts of free bubbly, fabulous shoes, gorgeous women and a great location - the inaugural Clarks High Heel Society event was a rip-roaring success.
