If you are ever looking for a classic and luxurious handbag with quality to last you a lifetime, look no further than the handbags worth a real Queen, the ones so often seen on the hand of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth. Worn to main state appearances including wedding of Will and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge(below left) those handbags made to order by British designer brand Launer have become Queen’s go to accessory. And now the classic collection that featured leather handbags in traditional colours with gold hardware is expanding its palette to feature bold fashionable colours that are likely to attract a much younger hipper customer. Indeed I would not refuse one of these myself, how lovely would it be to have one in, say, pink to take with you to afternoon tea with the girls or dinner with partner’s family. So yes, thanks to completely revamped colour collection, Launer is landing itself on My Fashion Wish List, and I think I am not the only one to want a handbag adorned with royal nod of approval. The only problem – most Launer bags are still made to order and will take 2-3 weeks to be delivered to your door, so plan your purchase in advance. Take a look at the classic range here with styles worn by the Queen starting at £1020, the new range will appear there shortly.

Tulisa Contostavlos, one of this years new X-Factor judges, is nowadays unrecognisable. Long gone is the urban hip hop band member attitude and with that the corresponding fashion choices. Now this young lady is dressed impeccably and gives fellow judge Kelly Rowland run for her money.
And one thing Tulisa is doing to up her fashion credit (as in direct opposite to street credit) is choosing the right designers to be associated with. This week everyone is talking about her loyalty to Bruce Oldfield, whose stunning creations she worn twice on the show. Let me tell you, when you wear a dress like that you are not just wearing a dress, you project the vision of the designer and the symbolism of his creations. And Bruce Oldfield comes with a lot of symbolism as his dresses have been worn by Royals from all around the world (including the Queen herself) and happy brides on their biggest day in their life (the bridal collection is to die for, go to http://www.bruceoldfield.com/bridal/range/couture and indulge your hidden desires to be a bride, whether or not it is on the cards in the near future).
Back to the lady of the hour – she doesn’t just look stunning, she looks magnificently royal without letting us forget that she is young and sexy. So if you are asking yourself how is this connected to My Fashion Wishlist, here is the answer – I want to look stunning, magnificently royal and sexy at the same time, too. So Bruce Oldfield Couture is right on my wishlist!
