Jimmy Choo founder, Tamara Mellon, made her way to Buckingham Palace yesterday to be awarded an OBE from the Queen. The shoe guru was named in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours list alongside Nick Knight and BFC chairman, Harold Tillman. Dressed in a fetching ensemble including a Dolce & Gabbana spotted dress, furry collar and black fedora hat, Mellon said: "I am so thrilled to be receiving this great honour and to be recognised in this way. I am grateful to everyone at Jimmy Choo - and our customers around the globe - for helping make our success possible. While our brand has global reach, the roots and heritage of Jimmy Choo are uniquely British so I am especially pleased and proud of this honour."
