We’re really puzzled by the giant black patch on this. Did she leave a biro in her pocket? Did it leak?

These girls did well to walk in these hats. It would be a bit like being blindfolded. See? Modelling IS hard.

    I love the orange with the fuchsia ribbon. I would wear it in a heartbeat. Love the shoes as well, hate the hats.
