Be a ray of sunshine like Vogue in Kukhareva London

Vogue Williams is something of a regular at the races, so it was no surprise to see her looking so perfectly put together at Epsom today.

She was styled by Corina Gaffey for the occasion, teaming a Kukhareva London bodysuit with a matching skirt by the brand and a padded headband by Justine Bradley-Hill. We’ve only got one word: flawless!

This look is from the forthcoming Autumn/Winter collection, and we love love LOVE the knitted fabric. The contrast between the leopard print wrap over bodysuit and pleated maxi skirt is very pretty, and whilst Kukhareva is a relatively new name on our radar, it turns out Alesha Dixon is a fan too!
