Alberta Ferretti has launched a much requested bridal collection which includes 14 confections from short to long, soft to structured, romantic to richly bohemian. Her collection was shown at the Ritz Hotel on Monday.
Expect all of Ferretti's signature elegance; there are column dresses, guaranteed to glide elegantly over curves. Ferretti's attention to detail comes across in the way the soft silks and chiffons are draped, gathered and finished here with a bow, there with a flurry of ostrich feathers. And it's not only floor-skimming white gowns; there's also Feretti's take on a white, wide-legged wedding trouser and two mini-dresses for good measure. Delicate cover-ups are more than just a useful accessory, they're turned into features themselves; our favourite is a wispy, chiffon-sleeved shrug.
Ferretti says of the collection "With this new line dedicated to the Bride, I wanted to interpret, according to my concept of fashion, that special moment that is still the most important day for a woman."
Alberta Ferretti, 205-206 Sloane Street, London, SW1 020 7235 2349.
Launched in 1960, the legendary Elnett hairspray is now 50 and celebrates this very special birthday by recreating the magic of the most emotion-packed scenes of world-famous films in a campaign by Vincent Peters.
Four star posed for his lens to reinterpret four scenes from great movie classics of the past. Letitia Casta, soft hair tumbling to her shoulders, is Gilda by Charles Vidor (1964), in the footsteps of Rita Hayworth.
Diane Kruger wears a airy yet structured chignon in keeping with Eva Marie Saint's look in Hitchcock's North by Northwest, a role originally played by Grace Kelly in 1959.
Frida Pinto has the difficult task of copying the artless, party-loving Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, which Blake Edwards directed in 1961.
Lastly, Claudia Schiffer, with a high-set chignon or flowing, seductive tresses, is Brigitte Bardot in Jean-Luc Godard's 1963 film, Contempt.
The finishing touch? The same for all: a spray of Elnett.

"Shopping Fever" by Karl Lagerfeld
Fall-Winter 2010/11 Ready-to-Wear Pre Collection
Two young and beautiful teenage girls, Dree Hemingway and Abbey Lee, come back to their palace hotel after going on a shopping spree, and drag the hotel groom, played by Baptiste Giabiconi, into their game.
This short movie directed by Karl Lagerfeld has been edited to resemble a movie trailer – a teaser of a full-length film that doesn’t exist.
