Adora Kora

What would a beautiful model with perfect skin know about skincare?
A LOT.
Kora is an organic skincare range by Miranda Kerr.
Miranda is so passionate about the products used in Kora and we ended up chatting for hours over a few Noni juices (I’m now addicted). Noni is one of the key ingredients fused with various organic natural plant-derived extracts in all her Kora products. Basically, only the best organic ingredients are used and I’m now a huge fan. I can’t get enough - the smell, the consistency the hydration. It may not make me look exactly like Miranda but it certainly makes me feel like Miranda looks, fantastic!

My favourites from Kora by Miranda Kerr include Organic Rich body lotion, Rosehip Oil (love this, it puts back all the hydration a big night out takes away)  and Foaming Cleanser.

Jac+Jack Store opened today

I was running around prepping a job on William St, Paddington today (stylist’s clock up a lot of miles in heels) and quite by chance became the first person ever to walk into the new Jac+Jack store in Sydney.

Jac+Jack’s new store I’m sure will be a huge success, they’re known for their quality tee’s and knits.

Jade Parfitt’s London Week Roundup

Jade Parfitt perfectly personifies the British Supermodel. She’s now a TV presenter and has walked for fashion’s biggest names including the late Alexander McQueen. She and I worked together on VogueTV, slipped into some truly unforgettable situations, chatted to fashion’s finest and had some Champagne-fuelled adventures along the way.

… Enjoy Clare Alstin

Day 1
Today I saw Christopher Kane who showed a beautiful black collection; dresses were form-fitting with flowers embroidered on them. Stunning.


Erdem was absolutely amazing. He told me his inspiration came from the movie Alive, you know the one where a plane crashes and people survive in the snow swept Alps? He wanted the collection to feel like the dresses were made out of many other pieces sewn together. American supermodel Trish Goff was almost in tears at the beauty of it all!

Front row sightings so far: At Vivienne Westwood Janet Jackson, Naomi Campbell and Nicola Roberts all sat front row with Kate Moss missing the show but arriving late to congratulate Viv.

Day 2
Front row at Peter Pilotto, it’s Trish Goff, Yasmin le Bon and me! Very excited to se what the new print masters had in store; beautiful tailored leather trousers, draped dresses with flashes of silver fur. The design duo told me they were going for a more organic approach using natural fabrics where possible. A slightly more sophisticated collection from one of the hottest UK based labels.
