HER BEST LOOK: A classic pink manicure, an on-trend-yet-never-out-of-style, beautiful Egyptian-inspired double winged eyeliner, Louboutins and perfect hair: this is her best style moment so far. A piece of trivia for fashion fact fans: according to Lisa Eldridge, a flick of liner worn on the lower lashline was invented by Marilyn Monroe's makeup artist to make it look like the movie star's top lashes were so damn fabulous that they left a shadow.

FANCY DRESS: Even when done up for a costume party Ms Mona looks chic and stylish - as far as Halloween choices go, Cleopatra really is the ultimate fashion icon. (Kim, however, gets a D for effort as he appears to be wearing an eye patch with his standard black outfit. That does not a pirate make).

THE YIN TO HIS YANG: While the German-sandals-meet-Crocs Kim is wearing certainly steal the show, let us all remember that it takes a confident woman to wear an all white outfit to a party held on a grassy hill. Especially one where one shall be running around after toddlers.

CHANNELLING VICTORIA BECKHAM AGAIN: Here Mona wields a Birkin by Hermes again with an on-trend polo neck and a chic pulled back bun. And while we would have chosen different shoes and gone for a slightly less boxy jacket, this is all-in-all a classic, timeless look. Kim, meanwhile, is staying true to form with his never-take-it-off scarf and a leather cap, all in black, of course.
