Made in Chelsea: Fashion round-up

Well – what did you think? Made in Chelsea returned to E4 last night and I must say I was well impressed. It had all the ingredients for an explosive series and the fashion was fab as ever…

After the glitz of St. Tropez, and Spencer looking slightly rotund (and – can you believe I’m saying this? – too beardy) things got fizzy back in Chelsea. Cheska started doing what she does best (meddling) by sticking her oar in Ollie’s pursuit-of-females business; Binky and Jamie finally made a date, only to be thwarted by Spencer-pretender Sam (who struggles to get his lines out straight – even when they are as simple as “hi”); Spencer fronted up to the obnoxious Andy wearing the same lilac shorts he was schmoozing the ladies in (ewwwwww) during The Bachelor (I love that Louise referred to his starring role in reality TV’s fuck-fest as “kissing other girls and stuff”); Richard Dinan proved that studded t-shirts should never, ever be worn by a man; Proudlock painted the creepiest “menage a trois” ever (see evidence above); and Mark Francis reminded us that he is actually a high level spiritual guru…his words of wisdom? “An over-tanned stomach is never chic.” Quite.

Oh, and Millie now appears to be an extra who swans in at random moments wearing good hats.

Once I’d waded through the many emerging plot lines, I focused in on the fashion and here are my picks from episode 1:

We only got a glimpse of Millie Mackintosh in the first episode, but she still stole the fashion show in this gawjus red wool cardigan with metal cording by Zara, worn with skinny black jeans, baseball boots and a black hat: street stylee

And Louise is back to her best; men fighting over her left and right and rocking a very cute tie dye cut out shoulder top – it looks like Topshop’s finest to me, and only a tenner in the sale if you want to steal her style

In St. Tropez, Rosie was sporting a very cute, chunky chain by Mawi

The first glimpse we got of Richard’s new chick Ianthe was of her studded boots – and they look suspiciously like the ones I own from Primark (£18)

Cheska tries (but not very hard) to look impressed by Ollie’s new haircut. I was quite impressed by her feather print high-low dress which looks like a Punky Fish number from the SS12 collection to me
