Made In Chelsea's chocolate girl is high class but not high fashion
From time to time, I get a style crush. It's a bit like the way women drool over posters of George Clooney or men become infatuated with Megan Fox – or a new-fangled motor.
Every now and again, I will become obsessed with a star and, more importantly, their style.
In the past, it's been various fashionable folk, from Victoria Beckham to Lady Gaga (I liked her padded shoulders – not her telephone hat).
At the moment, it's Made In Chelsea's Millie Mackintosh – the stunning make-up artist who appears in the E4 show.

I've been following her Twitter feed with a careful eye and reading her blog, desperately scouring the pictures she posts each day of what she is wearing.
She may be a bit posh but I was delighted when I found out some pastel jeans she was wearing were from Zara – one of my favourite high street stores – and even better, something I can buy here in Hull.
Although the Quality Street chocolate heiress is high class, she's not high fashion – which makes her style even more appealing.
And it's not just me who thinks so. At the moment, she is hot property. Her face is in all the magazines and she has been modelling for various brands – from hairdresser Umberto Giannini to Leeds-based designer Prodiga (which is available from Boutique Milla in Swanland).
One of the most exciting projects she is currently involved with is Lipsy's new VIP range of dresses.
There's some really gorgeous designs – perfect for a special occasion or even a prom (check out our Six Of The Best for more inspiration for a ball).
It's not just about what you wear – it's about the other elements that make up your look as well.
Millie's hair – minus extensions, which makes a change – always looks so healthy and shiny and she keeps her make-up toned down during the day.
Her outfits are realistic, too. I mean, as much as the Essex girls and Scousewives look great, wearing high heels and hotpants while walking down the street during the day is not practical (and you get a few funny looks if you do that round here).
I've got the pastel jeans from Zara, so all I need now is her long legs, big bank balance and a flash pad in Chelsea.
Also, I thought I would share with you in this week's column my excitement for Hull Bid Fashion Week, which will start on Monday, April 30.
There's so much planned – which I will talk about nearer the time – but look out in the Mail for updates, as elements are still being finalised.
It really is a great chance to celebrate fashion in Hull. OK, so we are not living in New York, London or Paris but we still have a lot to shout about – from fantastic independent boutiques to the national chain offering, too.
Plus, it brings people into the fabulous city centre we have here and the beautiful Holy Trinity Church – which will be the setting once again for the catwalk finale on Saturday, May 5.
I was told the launch for Hull Bid Fashion Week will be taking place the Saturday before, on April 28, with a topless bus ride with models around the city centre.
I was shocked and rather disgusted – how could this be allowed? What would the conservative folk of Hull make of that?
But then the organisers reassured me it was the bus that was topless and not the models.
