Holiday Type / Fashion Icon Favourites

Rub shoulders with fashion icons such as Donna Karen and Cara Delevingne at Parrot Cay by COMO, where they embrace rejuvenation on a private island escape. Models, designers and fashion editors head for Miami. The Design District is a neighbourhood dedicated to innovative fashion and design; stay in fashionable South Beach and enjoy sunrise yoga at The Betsy, a magnet for chic socialites thanks to its vintage glamour. Combine a Miami shopping trip with a glamorous stay in the Caribbean. Due to its sheer opulence, first class reputation and absolute discretion, Sandy Lane regularly attracts celebrities including the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Claudia Schiffer, David and Victoria Beckham and local islander Rihanna.

There are very few places on the planet that are more chic than St Barths. Eden Rock is super stylish and is a haven for fashion icons, counting Greta Garbo among its glamorous previous guests. The Rockshop at Eden Rock pays tribute to fashion from around the world; both international and upcoming designers are introduced each season. Juliette Dunn, Melissa Odabash, Peter Pilotto, Mary Katranzou and Bamford are just a few who have featured. Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle De France, part of the Louis Vuitton Group, is renowned for discreet personal attention and is anchored on one of St Barths' finest beaches - Diane von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs have been spotted here.

Italy is a favourite of many designers and Taormina, Sicily is the hometown of Domenico Dolce of Dolce & Gabbana and was the location for the brand's first Alta Moda couture show in July 2012. Stay at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo with its timeless glamour that has long been a lure for the glitterati. Capri was another destination for a Dolce & Gabbana photo shoot featuring David Gandy - we recommend a stay at the Capri Palace Hotel & Spa that is located in the centre of Anacapri, one of the most exclusive and unspoilt parts of the island. With turquoise oceans, lush greenery and beautiful yachts wherever you look, there is no questioning why the harbour of Portofino is Heidi Gosman's favourite holiday destination - the Heidi Klein designer opts to stay at Belmond Hotel Spendido.

With such hectic schedules, quality time and privacy can be difficult to find. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Princess Kate, choose The Cotton House, Mustique to escape the glare of the public eye when on a break from their royal duties. The boutique hotel is the island's social hub, offering an exclusive hideaway. William and Kate also spent a romantic night in the shadow of Ayers Rock at Longitude 131° on their tour of Australia. Victoria Beckham rarely takes time out of her busy fashion designer commitments, so when she does, quality time with her family is paramount. Victoria celebrated her 40th birthday at the architecturally dramatic yet atmospherically intimate Amangiri. The Beckhams have also enjoyed a festive break at One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives.
