Trend; All That Glitters

Four-day weekends, an abundance of street parties and a house covered from floor-to-ceiling in Union Jack bunting - there are many things to celebrate about the Queen's diamond jubilee, and many ways to celebrate them. One look at the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2012 indicate that it's not just the public showing their enthusiasm - in a nod to this historic event, the runways were glittering (even more so than usual) with diamonds. Some of the most decadent gowns of the season were dripping head-to-toe in crystals, whilst sequinned Peter Pan collars and intricate tiaras were the must-have accessories of the season. The craze for all things that gleam even extended into the beauty world - the models at Fendi were seen with silver foil applied to their eyelids as a glimmering alternative to eye-shadow. Whether it be metallic leather, silver snakeskin flares or the tradtional diamond-studded ballgown, there was enough variety for any woman to become a princess, whether it be one of the classic variety or one of the ultra-modern type.
