I’m stranded on a desert island, filled with pretty things to wear, all in my favourite colour.

I first saw a glimpse of it at Lanvin…

Luscious at Lanvin SS09

It was a Spring teaser. Then came the Louboutins.

But now that Jenny from the (Upper East) block has literally fallen on her Louboutin assets while singing about them, we may have to declare the era of the red sole Ovah, with a screaming thud and a capital O!

At Nada, the mood darkened but our spirits heightened. Classic bordeaux. Who could resist it? Certainly not I. And not Mila – wearing Monique L’huillier at the 2009 Emmy Awards, standing far apart from the LBD masses.

However, perfection is when liquid maroon silk drapes every inch, like this divine dress by Haider Ackerman.

Even when worn head to toe, there is no monotony in maroon, my dears. It’s just plain mah-vellous.
