Steal her Style- Beyonce in Topshop

7 Mar

All hail Queen Bey!

The awesome Beyonce is currently in the UK, touring with her “Mrs Carter Show.” Perhaps your one of the lucky ones who has seen her rocking out across the country? She’s been playing at the O2 and we’ve heard that the show has been AMAZING. I wouldn’t expect anything less, especially after seeing her at Glastonbury.

She’s a brilliant performer, and so deserves to let her hair down. She was spotted out in London with hubby Jay-Z wearing a high street dress from Topshop.

The dress has, not surprisingly, sold out in most sizes online! But you can search the website for in store stock, lots of places still have sizes 6-14!

Oscars 2014- Red Carpet Dresses

5 Mar

So the biggest red carpet event took place a few days ago. The 86th Academy Awards hosted some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and the red carpet event didn’t disappoint. There were a few key trends seen at this year’s event- lots of black, peplums, pinks and several metallic gowns. So here are a few of our favourite looks.

Of course, the biggest winner of them all on the night was Lupita Nyong’o, who deservedly won the Best Supporting Actress award. She’s been impressing everyone on the red carpet and on the night, she wore a stunning Couture Prada dress that dazzled everyone.

Oscars 2014- Red Carpet Predictions

28 Feb

UPDATE: To see the dresses worn on this year’s Oscars red carpet, read our blog here.

It’s almost Oscars time- just a few days in fact, so I thought we could look at some of the nominees past looks, as well at the recent SS14 runways to see what dresses and designers we might see on this year’s red carpet.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

Jen’s been missing from a lot of the big award ceremonies, but we can’t blame her with her busy film schedule. For her appearances promoting the Hunger Games sequel, she’s been dressed in Dior and given that she’s the face of the brand, it’s a fair bet that she’ll be wearing it for another year.

Could Jennifer be wearing something similar from Paris Couture Week?

Lupita Nyong'o BAFTAs 2014

Oh Lupita- from that Golden Globes dress to the BAFTAs one above, you’ve been making hit after hit. I don’t know what designer she’ll be wearing (though she’s appeared in recent Miu Miu campaigns) but you can bet it will be a stunner. I’m going to go with something colourful- she carries beautiful bright gowns so well. I’m also backing her for the Best Supporting Actress Award. I love you J-Law but American Hustle is very overrated.

Would love to see Lupita wearing another colourful gown

Kristen Stewart/Anyone in Zuhair Murad

Someone has to wear one of these couture pieces, it would be rude not to. Kristen Stewart has worn a lot of Murad’s pieces, but other stars have also donned the gorgeous creations.

Vintage Valentino popping up somewhere.

Julia Roberts wore Valentino when she picked up her Best Actress Award for Erin Brokovich. She’s nominated again this year and will no doubt look great. Even if it’s not vintage, Valentino is a safe pick for the red carpet. So stunning!

I adore these Elie Saab dresses, and would love to see them on this year’s red carpet!

Emma Watson isn’t one to play it safe. She wore a beautiful red Dior dress with cropped trousers at the Golden Globes earlier this year, and here she is in Giambattista Valli. When you think of the Oscars you don’t generally think of short dresses but who knows, maybe Emma will wear something similarly daring.

I could carry on picking my favourite looks from Paris. I’m sure we’ll see some amazing looks on the red carpet from the likes of Tom Ford, Chanel and Marchesa too.

Are you looking forward to the red carpet at this year’s Oscars?

BRITs 2014- Red Carpet Wins

20 Feb

Ahh the BRIT Awards. I must confess, I did not watch them this year, partly due to the fact that I’m so cool *cough* I don’t know who some of these people are (who/what is Foxes?) and partly because I was in the cinema watching the hilarious Cuban Fury. However, I did have a look at the red carpet arrivals, as I had high hopes at finding some inspiration for outfits.

Whilst there were some dull oufits (and the less said about Kylie Minogue the better- do tell me if I’m wrong there..) there were some noteworthy dresses.

One of the things Cuban Fury has in common with the some of the dresses is..sequins! Especially on Lily Allen.

I don’t think  I’ve ever coveted a bright yellow Chanel bag until this moment, but I’m sold. Co-ordinating your bag with your hair- maybe less so. Still, the look works on Lily and suits what she’s been sporting in her recent music videos.

I also love this House of Holland dress on Annie Mac. The print, the shape- I love everything about it. It’s available for £330 here.

The metallic dress Fearne Cotton wore also won me over. It was the sleeves mainly that did it- I’m still very much in love with sheer.

Finally, one that I can’t make my mind up on- Ellie Goulding. I’m no fan of her personally, but I do love at least the top half of this Vivienne Westwood dress.

Just a few of my fave looks.

Jump To It: SS14 Jumpsuit Trend

19 Feb

Back in 2011, I wrote a post on here about the jumpsuit- and how it was going to be a top trend.

Fast forward three years and once again, the jumpsuit is even hotter. Whereas in 2011 it was all about the prints, this year’s all-in-one is sophisticated and sexy. And I can’t get enough of them.

I’ve already added a few more to my wardrobe from New Look and River Island. Block colours, tailored and chic. Even the celebs can’t get enough. Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie have all swapped the ball gowns for a jumpsuit on the red carpet recently.

And why not?

Jumpsuits are perfect for a night out. A ready made, all-in one outfit. Oh and they are comfortable- we’ll ignore the toilet situation… Just dig out your heels and some statement jewellery (don’t overdo it with the accessories though) and you’re good to go!

I’ve picked out a few chic all-in-ones that have got me all in a tizz. Oh and black is always a good option, especially if you’re yet to try this trend…

Angelina Jolie Suits Up at BAFTA Awards 2014

17 Feb

I love Angelina Jolie. Let’s just get that out of the way.

And whilst I also love looking at pretty red carpet gowns, unless Vivienne Westwood ever confuses me with Carrie Bradshaw and gifts me a beautiful dress, the chances of me ever wearing anything similar is pretty slim. So I absolutely love it when someone makes a bold red carpet choice and goes against the norm.

Cue Jolie!

I always feel more comfortable being under-dressed than super glam, as it’s more me. So I’m thrilled that Jolie has adopted a more laid back look for the red carpet season. Sure, she still looks super glamorous, especially in her patent black heels, but at least she hasn’t followed the rule of ultra-girly gowns. It makes me feel better about the way I dress sometimes and proves you don’t always have to be in a dress to look chic and feminine.

Plus she looks better in a suit than Brad Pitt.

If you like the androgynous look,  Topshop has a great trouser suit available to buy. You could experiment with shoes and shirts and find a look that suits you.
