The Fashion Audit - 08/08/11

We love - Gucci for iPad
Continuing the house's 90th birthday celebrations, Gucci Style by Gucci is an exclusive digital shopping magazine that blends fashion and trends with the craftsmanship that has seen the brand thrive. And with styling tips from creative director Frida Giannini and a virtual road trip through Italy in a Gucci-enhanced Fiat 500, the app provides a slice of la dolce vita. Free, www.itunes.apple.com
We're not sure - Starlettos
If, like the Audit, your summer season is packed with weddings, garden parties and equestrian events, you've probably lost count of the times the heels of your Manolos have sunk into the grass. These heel savers are a nifty device, but certainly won't earn you any style points. Dilemma. Just remember, full-length dresses hide all manner of sins.
We're buying - Lulu and Co
It could be argued that Fashion East and the woman behind it, Lulu Kennedy, is the reason that London's young design scene is in such rude health. Her second collection brings together the established and emerging design talent that Lulu has nurtured, such as Richard Nicoll, James Long and Jonathan Saunders. £925, www.selfridges.com
We can't wait for - Road to Bestival
Bestival prides itself on bringing together the best festival elements (the clue is in the name, duh) and to celebrate Replay's 30th anniversary, the denim brand will be hosting its very own tent, with workshops as well as live music and performances from emerging acts chosen in an online competition. www.replay.it
