The latest (May) issue of Harpers Bazaar brought my attention to Elle Macpherson's new(ish) home-away-from-home - A private residence in a "gated community" set amongst 650 acres of idyllic Cotswold countryside 90 minutes from London. Elle's humble (not really) abode forms part of the Lakes by Yoo development (check out the "estate map"!), a joint venture between award winning developer The Raven Group and design experts yoo (I mentioned them a couple of years back in this post). Check it out:"How you choose to design your waterfront home is completely up to you. Of course, having chosen the ideal property, we are more than happy to help you create the most compelling living space. Our esteemed designers can be made available, including the yoo design studio and their team, which includes Philippe Starck, Jade Jagger, Kelly Hoppen and Marcel Wanders. Other designers can be suggested upon request." - thelakesbyyoo.com

Well? What did you think? I was a little bit in heaven. If I had to rank the 10 most all-round-stylish women on the planet, Elle Macpherson would be in my top 5. Without a doubt. And with a bullet. I think it's clear why...
And PS Blue hair when you're pushing 50? JUST YES.
