The musician – real name Colson Baker – chose a vibrant purple two-piece suit by Dolce & Gabbana for the occasion... so far, so normal.

On Saturday 26th November, the Hummingbird Bakery opened it’s doors to the community of St John’s Wood and I was lucky enough to be amongst the crowd enthralled at the American cakes, cupcakes, pies, cookies, brownies and more that they had to offer.
