Over the last few months I have reviewed 23 luxury cars. It is hard not to compare one car brand from another. But driving a 220,000 New Bentley GT Continental Grand Tourer is why I want to inspire all women to embrace the finest of quality when it comes to luxury cars. The Bentley brand stands alone, a different pedigree that is like no other.
In 2018, how should a women dress when driving such an exclusive car? For me at this level the fashion rules are there to be broken and explored.
