Another lovely touch was the inclusion - without apology - of Isabella's more damaged items such as her scuffed Givenchy mules and the McQueen coat complete with cigarette burns. It's a lovely reminder that what Isabella loved, she wore. And wore and wore and wore. Nothing was saved for special occasions in her wardrobe.

Man, what a rollercoaster. You've known me since I was a kid, desperate to fill out a cup, any cup. ('Does an AAAA exist?') You were there, in your soft, first bra material, noble and strong, even when I was forcing tissue paper into your lungs, believing you weren't enough.

Permanently smoking with her hipbones shining through that Calvin Klein dress, doll face Kate was a breath of fresh air when she arrived in the early 90's. Ever since I saw her strut down the runway for Bella Freud in a black and pink fringe bikini in 1993, I was team Moss forever.

Last year I had an Australian landlord. He was laid back, always asking me 'how're you going?' and never concerned about anything but the Ashes. Caslazur has the same vibe; her girl is cool and calm. She turns heads, not because she looks a million dollars, but because her clothes have it all worked out.
