Contrast colour

When it comes to men's fashion, the term 'contrast colour' is usually associated with a blue shirt with a white collar and white French cuffs. Another example would be Gordon Gekko in all his megalomaniacal glory.

Chanel jacket is star of the show

The LBD, or little black dress, is not the only outfit that is small, black and universally flattering, according to Karl Lagerfeld.

Chanel's prolific designer has teamed up with former French Vogue editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld to celebrate the label's classic little black jacket through an international exhibition and a coffee table book of the same name.

Stylishly elegant

Times used to be much simpler for brides-to-be when it came to picking their wedding dresses. The only exceptions to the rule were contrary celebrity figures, such as Bianca Jagger who tied the knot with Mick Jagger in a sleek, white smoking tuxedo jacket by Yves Saint Laurent, and Marilyn Monroe, who said 'I do' to her second husband Joe DiMaggio in a cute, brown suit.

An ultimate touch of class

The bouquet may seem on first sight a trivial part of the entire bridal ensemble. But more brides are giving almost as much thought to the styling of the bouquet as they are to the dress.

Dandy & Dapper

I had jacket envy on my last business trip. The man across the aisle had a fantastic travel jacket (like a blazer, not anorak) and kept all his stuff in secret pockets. It didn't wrinkle even though he didn't ask the stewardess to hang it up. Where can I get such a thing?

Dare to be different

The most anticipated moment of any wedding is, undeniably, seeing the bride - and the dress that she's wearing - for the first time. The dress says so much about the bride's personality and style that choosing the right gown can take months of searching.

Classic couture

'For me,' Carine Roitfeld says, 'it's a very easy jacket to wear, almost like a denim jacket - but more chic. And the most beautiful things you don't see. They're inside and hidden: the silk, the details, the little chain and the cut. It's very subtle.'

Liberty belles

Last year was one for famous weddings, with the two Kates (Middleton and Moss) headlining, and it has set off several trends in modern bridal dresses that will be making an appearance as spring nuptials take over this year.
