Apologies for the missing entry on Friday, there were more than a couple of sore heads to count for!
The Christmas party was a blast, the food was fabulous as was the company! On behalf of everyone at CVUK a massive thank you to Vanessa for such beautiful and thoughtful gifts and a party that those who can remember will definitely not forget!
Little Mix has won the X Factor (woo!), they have been dubbed the next big girl group by Mr Simon Cowell himself. The girls that have said they don’t drink nor smoke have made X Factor history by becoming the first group to ever win the show! Could these four be the next style icons for 2012? News is that they have several collaborations already in the pipeline for next year…Clearly the Christmas No1 isn’t enough anymore!! I’ll get my sequins at the ready with my knee-high socks and go grab myself a pair of high-tops, 2012 here I come!!!
Elizabeth Taylor’s jewellery auction fetched $113m (£74.9m) double that Christie’s had estimated on the 80 items available. Christie’s Marc Porter said that the action was “one of the most extraordinary sales” that they had ever held, calling it “a testament to the love of Elizabeth Taylor worldwide”. The most famous piece was by far the 33.19 carat diamond ring given to her by Richard Burton which sold for $8.8m (£5.7m). This really shows that no matter the condition of the financial climate people still crave for the glitz and glamour that first came truly to light when the world set their eyes on Miss Elizabeth Taylor.
Other news (and all CVUK have been talking about) is Marni collaborating with H&M! I am so excited!!! I’m not sure if I will be able to afford anything yet, but I will definitely be pining over all the garments and accessories (especially the jewellery) I can not wait for the chunk, print, colour blocks and signature pieces at almost affordable prices!
To wrap this Christmas edition up (excuse the pun) I would love to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The next time you will hear from me will be in 2012!
