Jasmine Al Fayed has apparently decided it's time to get serious. Six seasons in, she's traded her party-dress formula for a new focus on tailoring. Her jackets, with their slightly eighties shape (elongated torso, strong shoulder, scrunched-up sleeves) felt very now, as did a lounge-y pair of genie pants and a loose-legged satin jumpsuit.
