Gemma tries it on: 'I have embraced the flurry of sample sales that happen at this time of year'

My work life has got a bit glamorous lately. Well, the last three days anyway. My week started by being whisked off to Milan to attend a party thrown by Dodo, the Italian jewellery company.

Then finally it was back to London for two pressing Italian engagements: Christmas drinks hosted by Dolce & Gabbana, and later on that evening, a candlelit supper in Burlington Arcade with Salvatore Ferragamo.
