We love... Clemency London
This new super-luxe label launched for autumn/winter and has impressed with its range of chic and cool reworked classics. There are silky party dresses with appliqué chiffon detailing to die for, as well as some excellent modern and edgy tailoring. Available from Selfridges. Clemencylondon.com
We're not sure... Dracula's facial
Sure, we're all in love with vampires this season, but only the hot teenage kind. Some Harley Street boffin suggests sucking out your blood, enriching it with a vitamin serum and re-injecting it back into your face to make you look younger. The horror! Pass the garlic please – which contains wrinkle-busting antioxidants anyway.
We're buying... Virginia Johnson
Virginia Johnson used to be an accessories designer for Helmut Lang, and her own range of adorable scarves are launching at Liberty, Selfridges and Net-a-Porter this week. We're convinced that they'll brighten even the dreariest of winter days, and the ice cream colours will work perfectly in summer too. Get yours now – the shark print versions are sure to be snapped up! £175, net-a-porter.com
We can't wait for... Twilight Barbie
A vampire-centric week for the Audit, but with New Moon out on Friday, we're R.Pattz obsessed. He may never be ours to hold, so this plastic rendering of his ethereal beauty will have to do. With a sharper jawline and pearlier complexion than your average Ken, it's as close as we're likely to get. Available from 12 December, £30 each.
