1. Anna Wintour
For the queen of fashion herself, I will make sure my party starts early enough so that she can drop by for her customary 10 minutes before going off to bed at 10pm. In the 10 minute of her presence, I will hopefully have accomplished the following:
a) admire her ability to rise to the top of the fashion letter without having to know how to write a word.
b) ask her what her secret is
c) determine if she really is the ice queen everyone makes her out to be
and just to spice things up a little, I will also invite
3. Lauren Weisberger author of
Wouldn't that be interesting? This will provide entertainment and much to talk about for me and the rest of my guests.
3. Mischa Barton
Since we are the same age, we'd probably have more in common. And I am just dying to grill her about how she keeps her hair so shiny and perfect whether its straight or curly, tied up or let down. And how she manages to dress so effortlessly chic and whether it actually is effortless!
4. Rose Marie Bravo
The true power businesswoman. I would love for an opportunity to talk to her about her experiences, how she brought Burberry from being a boring old English brand to the height of fashion and learn from her all the business savvy techniques there is to know about the fashion industry. And hopefully, some of her genius will filter into my brain through osmosis during the course of my dinner party.
5. Chad Michael Murray
My very own Prince Charming and eye candy for the rest of the ladies at the table. Am I not a considerate hostess?
6. Harrods Girl. Since Anna is only going to drop by for 10 minutes anyway, I figure I am allowed to invite one more person. And my party simply wouldn't be complete without Harrods Girl!
Phew~ Verbal Croquis poises a tough question.

In particular, I was very inspired by the dresses at Marc by Marc Jacobs. Especially the printed silk ones, like this one shown above. It is just sooo beautiful, with the shiny slinky material and the vibrant bold prints!
Kay Unger New York also has a rather stunning dress, which is just as shiny and colorful, with a more fitted design.
This floral printed dress from Celine is all you need for a hot summer day.
The colors are not just limited to the blue/green palette either. This red printed paisley (i think?) silk dress from Shoshanna does the trick just as well!Other similar dresses can be found at Anthropologie, like this one here, designed by Anna Sui. Yet another designer design at an affordable price-well relatively anyway. But I definitely love this dress more than any offered at Target by Luella.
This blue dress from Top Shop is not made of silk, but it looks very vibrant and shiny-in a crinkly way.
And lastly there is this silk floral dress from Free People. But please-not with those boots.
