Last Wednesday I was invited by the press officers for Kensington Palace to view its new exhibition Diana: Her Fashion Story, two days before it opened to the public. It was such a special and surreal experience for me as a little boy I used to look up to her. To get up this close and personal, to stand next to the clothes she breathe and walked in was just magical. She was an extraordinary human being. What's makes it all even more special is that this exhibition is inside a place where she lived - her home Kensington Palace. The exhibition is now open to the public and is well worth seeing. ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Amongst the thousands of photos I took backstage at London Fashion Week, this is one of my favourites. I love all the details on the pleated neck piece, and the dust in the air as the fan blew to keep the models and backstage team cool from the heat of the lights. Shot at XIAO LI inside the BFC building.

Photo from when I took a break backstage at London Fashion Week while the models were out performing. Sat on a model's make-up chair drinking @evianwater.

After my visit to Kensington Palace yesterday, I made a mad dash to Savile Row to pick up a made to measure shirt I had custom made for myself. Here is Max who is the store director and has been absolutely brilliant in helping me create my perfect shirt. He is Italian so we spent quite a bit of time talking about all things Italy! ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Trying multiple photos for the first time and I am excited! Swipe to see the next photo. These are from yesterday at Kensington Palace. ๐Ÿ‘‘ I feel extreme honoured to have been invited by the press officers for Kensington Palace to view its new exhibition, Diana: Her Fashion Story in private. It opens to the public tomorrow and offers a very intimate and personal experience of a very special lady the world loved. This is as close you will ever get to her as the very gowns she wore during her extraordinary and short life are there to see in person. You must go and see it. @historicroyalpalaces

Earlier today, at a London Fashion Week show. ๐Ÿ‘

Toni & Guy e-mailed me asking me to pop down for a haircut inside the London Fashion Week space. Of course I was never going to say no as I love the brand. Absolutely blown away by what my hair dresser did when I went in for a haircut today. Just look at that amazing voluminous slick quiff! Can she style my hair every day please?

There is no place in the world that made me fall in love with it quite like Venice. I miss it. This was taken 19 months ago. One day when I am an old man, I want to come back to this very spot and look back at how young I was in this photo. I will never forget it. I was so happy and at peace that evening. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น I went to Venice with @lg_uk where photos were taken for its G4 mobile phone advertising campaign. Later that year photos of me in Venice for LG's advertising campaign went live and were included on the giant TV screens at Piccadilly Circus for months. ๐Ÿ˜€ By the way, do you think my hair looks better with the quiff? Or does it look better the way it used to be, as in this photo? Sometimes I miss it. ๐Ÿ‘ Photo beautifully taken by @florabaker. ๐Ÿ“ธ

Cannot wait for London Fashion Week next Friday! My 13th LFW season! I spend a lot of time backstage at many London Fashion Week on-schedule shows each season thanks to the designers and PR agencies inviting me to watch everything being put together. The British Fashion Council is also always incredibly wonderful to me. This photo is from the last LFW (September 2016) - backstage at J JS Lee, after the show. I had no idea @demijonk was giving me a kiss at the time. ๐Ÿ˜‚ So cute! ๐Ÿ’• There are actually more models in this photo lined up with me but I couldn't fit them all into Instagram's square without making us all look smaller.

When you need to take time out from a party, just so you can take that all important selfie. ๐Ÿ“ธ

When you are having your picture taken at a launch party and a random guest runs up to you because he wants his photo taken with you. Last night's photo at The Dorchester bar for artist Lhouette's Post Urban Glamour launch party. I was having my photos taken and he rushed up to me to pose. I was all, "Oh, okay then. Let's do this." ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘
