Temperley London's Autumn Winter 2012 show

Watching Temperley's show during London Fashion Week in February, every one of us Graziettes was dreaming of being a princess. We gasped as navy silk gowns with opulent jewelled straps and floor-sweeping cream lace robes glided down the catwalk for the Autumn Winter 2012 collection fittingly entitled Renaissance.

Hats off to that! Not only did she pair the jacket with a pair of matching harem pants, she blinged it up with gold Jimmy Choo ‘Leila’ sandals and chunky Pomellato jewels, topped off by lashings of honey-toned extensions.

Of course, the songstress is a bona fide pop princess so if anyone can transform Temperley's fairytale pieces into decadent urban wear, it's Jenny from the block. Commenters, however, have compared the look to a 'tacky '80s flashback'. Yikes! So let's hear your verdict on Jennifer's golden girl look...
