Elizabeth Taylor et al that israeli actress Dorit "Dodo" Bar Or found impossible to resist.
Her collection of Cleopatra-style kaftans and ready-to-wear debuts here this month inspired by women in Capri, St Tropez and the Hamptons.

Think sky-blue peplum tops with matching trousers, floral blouses with criss-cross lacing and flamingo-pink jumpsuits with jewel fastenings.
Her vibrant silk kaftans are embroidered on orange, fuchsia and blue, and collars and trouser hems feature Swarovski stones dipped in 24-carat gold; ideal for haute holidays. At Harrods and Paspourtoi.com
