This dress is one of my favourite spring/summer pieces from Cos, which Ive teamed with some Prada shoes I bought a while ago and my new Dior bag; I love the minky colour of this bag.

Rihanna and River Island, Lana Del Rey and H&M: the latest collaborations to hit the headlines this week and make me glad the British High Street is so unique. This is the only place in the world where accessible fashion or style for less as we say at ELLE is of such high quality, and the only place where we are creatively miles ahead of everyone else.
But who would you want to match-make? I asked team ELLE for some serious and not so serious ideas:
Peter Pilotto and Cos. Why? Mixing PPs prints with the modern, simple cuts by Cos
ELLE cover star Alexa Chung and everyone! We love everything she wears
Team ELLE and everyone! You seem to like our style on the What ELLE Wears gallery
Harper Beckham and Baby Gap
Gwen Stefani and Meadham Kirchhoff
Lana Del Rey and American Apparel
Zoe Kravitz and Alexander Wang
Hermès and H&M. Wishful affordable thinking
Mary Katrantzou and Eres swimwear
Erdem and Le Creuset for all the linen and tablecloth paraphernalia you can throw a floral stick at
Alison Mosshart and Acne
Betty Draper and Mac. Imagine the limited-edition red lipstick
Lana del Rey and just about any beauty brand for the ultimate liquid eyeliner
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Babyliss. Shes got the best cover-girl hair ever, so the tongs would be a sell-out
Downton Abbey and Jo Malone. We dont know why, we just thought it may work
I know some really clever ones will pop into my head the moment I go home so why dont you send me your wish list and Ill include them in my next blog post.
In the fashion cupboard today I found (and really liked) the following:
Icy crystal covered Chanel shoes from the autumn/winter 2012 show
Mary Katrantzou we love you! Looking forward to seeing her and her prints at Port Eliot festival
The Great British High Street doing what it does best
This week the editor is:
Packing to go on holiday. I am off to Cornwall and youll see me at Port Eliot Festival on Saturday. Ive just found out the first-ever editor of ELLE, Sally Brampton, and her successor Maggie Alderson will be there, too. Weve been wondering what you call a trio of ELLE editors. Any ideas?
