It felt a bit like skipping school, doing something so indulgent and sophisticated on a bleak Melbourne day: Afternoon Tea at the Waiting Room. The place: Crown Towers. The menu: gorgeously decorated pastries and other this-is-worth-breaking-the-sugar-diet-for morsels, created by executive head chef Roberto Molleman. The crowd: Pretty Young (and not-so-young but still looking fabulous, thank you) Things dressed in their girly finery - think Mad Men comes to Melbourne, and gets updated by at least two decades in the process.
Rebecca Judd. She once had a post on her blog about how she can do her own hair using a curling iron. All I have to say to that is that if you start out with a Prada dress, and alter it, you're still gonna end up with a Prada dress. I think she could style her hair with tweezers, and still look fantastic.
