Both Alexa and I are so inspired by our 60's girl crushes and eye looks so it was lovely to see Pat McGrath updating the decade for Dolce Gabbana, Versace and Gucci in Milan.

Fashion and feminism - they're like two people who only hang out together because they have a mutual friend. It's awkward, it's prickly - neither wants to be left alone together.

There is no excuse - London Fashion Week has designers all over the Capital producing, exhibiting, showing. There is no excuse whatever your shape, size or style. The only way LFW will be more inclusive is if we continue to support the ones who are trying to do exactly that.

Fashion's shows are like run ways for goddess giants from another planet. You get invited the view the latest collection, but you leave feeling ugly, fashion conscious, and scared you look a hobbit.

Angel Sinclair CEO of Models of Diversity approached me initially to write a piece about the show and during the interview she asked me if I would model. I said no... so why did I decide to do this? The catalyst was when my slim, athletic, healthy, 8 year old daughter asked me "Mummy am I fat?"
