Beyonce for Dazed & Confused in Givenchy

Beyonce graces the cover and pages of Dazed and Confused magazine and here you can catch some of the pages. Bey seems to have lost a lot of weight, and as much as I’m missing those famous curves, she still looks hot.

She wears Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and Gareth Pugh among other designers, but I’m particularly loving her custom Givenchy outfit she is wearing on the cover.


Reasons why I cannot wait for Winter

August 26, 2010 6 comments

Yes Yes Yes! Winter is around the corner!!! Why am I so happy you ask? Doesn’t winter equal miserable, dull weather, cold hands and feet and hibernation? Noooooo! Winter is the perfect excuse to show off a great wardrobe, and with AW 10/11 proving to be something of a classic season all round, quite frankly, I can’t wait.

This year focuses on traditional colours; camel, browns, navy blue and greys take centre stage. The late 1950s/early 1960s period seems to be of inspiration this year; think Grace Kelly. I’m delighted to notice that traditional shapes and styles, such as the full skirt, the trench coat and the feminine blouse have made a comeback 🙂

I’m adoring the full skirt and knitwear combo by Louis Vuitton below

The Atumn/Winter season is all about contrast. And, it’s not only prim and proper, feminine styling that you will be seeing in designer and high st stores. This year also offers a very minimalist, simple style. If you consider your style more of a modern and straight forward one, then you will love this trend. A-line skirts, cigarette pants and shift dresses are a must in your wardrobe. The contrast of dark and light combinations are key here; throw in a splash of colour to accentuate the look and you have made a huge statement; simple, modern, powerful. Peep an example from Celine below.

I adore the contrast modelled on the left; simple yet sexy, the splash of orange is far from dull and makes a big statement

Let’s talk winter jackets; we are talking the return of fur, denim, the cape and the aviator. We are also talking the combination of them all. I can hardly contain myself.

Peep the gorgeously expensive collection from Burberry below.

I am in love. Wouldn't this look great in your wardrobe? Not so great on the credit card....


Above, this cape from Pugh demands attention and screams futuristic yet minimalistic chick; meanwhile Alexander Wang offers a more formal yet feminine alternative below; which do you prefer?

You may be thinking; great, fantastic, beautiful! But waaaaay too expensive. Of course I had to do a bit of research to see which high st stores can offer a cheaper version, without compromising on design.

Topshop and River Island stepped up to the plate. I adore sheepskin, so you can imagine how thrilled I was when I caught sight of these.

Pop down to Reiss where you will find the aviator above at £350

And it’s quite simple; team your look with some oversized mittens and sheepskin lined boots, and you’re more than good to go. Chunky knitwear and plenty of sheepskin are all involved. With such a fabulous collection to look forward to this year, I predict a lot of strutting down West End! Especially in these….

What’s even better is it’s all looking good for mixing up, so there is no need to worry about marking yourself out as belonging to one particular trend; variety, contrast and combination is key for this years A/W collection.

So I say, bring on Winter!!
