I’ve got that winning gown on, a knockout necklace and the heels to take me from 5ft5ins to 5ft8ins – all sure-fire ways to get the compliments rolling in. But my final confidence booster? A spritz of Elie Saab’s gold edition perfume. Basically glamour; condensed and in a bottle.

I had my suspicions that whatever it was that would make me feel a million dollars, chances are it would be Chanel-shaped. Turns out, I was right. A full tweed look from the Dubai Cruise collection was all it took to convince me I was, essentially, a superhero. With every piece I put on I gained another strength, and by the time I’d slipped the jacket on top of the playsuit I could basically fly. Behold: the power of fashion.

Roughly the same weight as a small-but-perfectly-formed disco ball, this attention-seeking Alexander McQueen bag is a serious fashion force to be reckoned with. Left to shine against the backdrop of a classic LBD, it’s my plus one for the party season.

There’s nothing quite like feeling your best, but au naturel. How, you may ask? I recently discovered RevitaLash – a serum you apply daily, which conditions your lashes and improves flexibility, moisture and shine for a dramatic look without layers and layers of mascara.

Nothing makes me feel a million dollars like confidence. I defy anyone to put on a VB dress and not walk out of the door without a flash of fabulous. The Victoria Victoria Beckham range is slightly more affordable than the mainline (emphasis on slightly), but gives you exactly the same sense of quality. Over the festive season, this little number will be a desk-to-party favourite – teamed with Louboutins, of course.

Who needs a super-sequinned dress or over-embellished clutch to make them feel a million dollars? It’s all about this Versace skirt suit; power dressing at its finest. Teamed with a dazzling pair of Louboutins, it’s the cool-girl way to do cocktail dressing.
