I had my tonsils taken out on Thursday and I've just been let out of hospital and I'm feeling very sorry for myself. When people said that it was really painful to have done as an adult, I really didn't believe that it would be as bad as it actually is. I am in agony and am hardly able to speak. As i've been stuck inside sucking on ice cubes, i've not been doing much more than having Gavin and Stacey marathon sessions and searching my favourite websites.
  It was on one of many websites that I came across the following shoot by Tom Ford for the current edition of Vogue Paris featuring Crystal Renn, going under the knife. Not quite the same as loosing a pair of tonsils, but I felt it was rather fitting, especially as a very good friend of mine (who will remain nameless) compared my current stay in hospital to when she got her nose done!!

After seeing this I then stumbled across another similar shoot from Italian Vogue in 2005, by Steven Meisel with Linda Evangelista. This one is most definitely my favourite of the two. Its almost classic, rather than Ford's, 'Gaga Paparazzi' style approach to the more current of the two.

Nicole in Marchesa

Ever since I saw her as a trashy blonde with BFF Paris Hilton,  even during the eating disorder as advised by Rachel Zoe, and now as accessories designer and glam mum of two....i've always loved Nicole Richie. 
Finally she tied the knot yesterday with the very delicious Joel Madden, after 4 years together.

I had always presumed that her dress was going to be beautiful, and the Marchesa gown did not fail to impress. Supposedly inspired by the one Grace Kelly wore in her wedding to the Prince Rainier of Monaco, the high necked, long sleeved, lace dress in theory sounds like a charity-shop worthy monstrosity. But how it is only the exact opposite and this  fluffy, frou frou floor length wedding gown no doubt made more than just hubby-to-be Joel’s jaw drop!

No official wedding pictures have been released as of yet, but here are some of the best images that I could get at the moment!!
