Julien Mcdonald S/S15 LFW

Fashion week is now in full swing and we have seen some fabulous collections so far including Mary Katrantzou and the incredible Topshop Unique show!

On Saturday I attended Julien McDonald’s show, he’s a close friend and I always support him each season.  A number of celebrities sat front row including Nip+Fab’s brand ambassador Millie Mackintosh, Melissa Odabash and Abbey Clancy.

Julien is famous for this use of embroidery, beading and glitz that gives him a signature high-wattage glamour and red-carpet label. This collection kicked off with pencil dresses slashed to the navel with transparent tulle inserts and cobweb-knit panels that showed some skin and brought a sexy element. Baby doll shift dresses made an appearance alongside ruffled playsuits and the most spectacular bridal gowns.

The collection was beautiful it had Julien’s trademark look however had a modern new twist that makes it very exciting, it won’t be long before a number of celebrities will be rocking these beauties down the red carpet.

Congratulations Julien a beautiful and unique collection.

VICTORIA BECKHAM SS15 NYFW

Victoria Beckham displayed a fantastic collection, that I loved! This collection was very wearable and will make it easy for the every women at work to relate to and want to go and buy! With the launch of her London flagship store coming up, this collection fits in perfectly and will have a  number of fashionista’s including myself running down to stock up on next seasons staple essentials!

Aspects of the collection I fell in love with, was the idea of ‘an eclectic uniform’ that informed the slender tailoring, made from natural-coloured jute that belted at the waist. I love the bold floral prints that give the illusion of camouflage print! Safari style shirts and stripes made an appearance with long hem lines, meaning this collection is ideal for the office ladies who want to make a statement.

The stand out piece for me was a lace up chunky jumper that I adore! The shoes and accessories were another great aspect of the collection, this being the first year Victoria has included shoes designed by the VB brand. The flat cowboy style shoes were unique and stood out on the catwalk. Victoria including flats is great, as it shows she cares about her customers needs and wants us to look fabulous 24/7 whether its a flat shoes or high heel day!

Overall I loved the collection the atmosphere was great and of course doting husband David and oldest son Brooklyn were on hand to support Victoria sitting front row.

I’m now very excited for the store to open! Congrats VB a beautiful wearable collection.

MY HOLIDAY BEAUTY SECRETS REVEALED

While on my yearly trip to Mykonos, I have a number of products that I’m crushing on this year.

Here are my top five holiday beauty products.

  1. After a long day in the sun an after-sun body cream is essential, I’ve been using our 24ct Body Cream Soufflé it helps to instantly hydrate while the Shea Butter soothes, leaving my skin soft and nourished.
  2. To protect my skin I use SPF30 Sunspot Filter it’s my favourite product at the moment as it gives a high protection with SPF30 but is still a light weight formula and rubs in quickly and easy with no mess.
  3. Gold Bee 24ct Gold Super Serum works to plump the skin, leaving my skin super soft with a healthy youthful glow. I us this morning and night for a radiant complexion.
  4. On holiday I don’t like to cake my face with heavy foundations, so I use Instaglam Skin Tint HAMPTONS it’s a great tinted moisturiser that provides medium coverage, so my skin can shine through and leaves me with a dewy natural glow.
  5. Glamsticks are my Holiday go-to product, as they provide instant hydration to the lips, they protect with built in SPR15 and keep my lips nourished and looking the part! I use PSYCHO it’s a coral orange that works perfectly for holiday!

MyTheresa.com and Calvin Klein Event

Last night I attended the Calvin Klein Jeans and mytheresa.com party at Rosenfield Porchini.

I was honoured to be part of this event, as Calvin Klein campaigns have always been such a big influence to the fashion industry. Lottie Moss has now modelled for Calvin Klein 21 years after Kate did her first campaign for the brand – and now she’s hitting the fashion party scene!

The event was full of celebs and it had a great atmosphere. My style for night included a vintage jumpsuit with Saint Lauren white pointy pumps, Mulberry clutch with my her in loose curls. A great 70’s inspired look that I loved.

Daisy looked gorgeous, in Calvin Klein shorts and oversize top.

Great night!

THE SERPENTINE SUMMER PARTY

Last night was the Serpentine Summer Party in Hyde Park, I love this event the sun is always shining and location is beautiful. The event had a very glittering guest list, with an array of A-listers everyone from Bradley Cooper to Cara Delevingne!

I wore one of my favourite designers Mary Katrantzou, a sky blue textured tunic with a dipped hem on one side and cut off vintage shorts. One of my favourite party bags as its small, but gives a wow impact is my red Chanel Lego cross bag. I teamed this with electric blue wedges and my hair in loose curls, the perfect summer party outfit.

I loved so many looks from the night. Cara looked beautiful and classic in a long black gown, with her hair in simple but effective pony tail. Suki Waterhouse wore a low cut, dusty pink chiffon gown she looked stunning.

The highlight of the night was the performance from Pharrell Williams he sounded amazing and owned the crowd.

OLIVIA GETS MARRIED IN STYLE

Olivia Palermo goes all Carrie Bradshaw on us as she marries her beau in an untraditional super chic assemble.

Olivia always looks effortlessly stylish, she has a great edge about her where she can put looks together that don’t traditionally work and look incredible!

On her wedding day she did not disappoint and stuck to her edgy but classic style. She looked absolutely stunning in a cream jumper with ostrich feathers, a white tulle skirt and matching shorts all by Carolina Herrera, adding cobalt Manolo Blahniks to act as her ‘something blue.’

She wore her hair in a loose but well put together pony tail, with her make-up subtle but effective. She had perfectly groomed brows, with a slightly smokey eye, rose cheeks and finished with a dusty pink lip.

Congratulations Olivia you looked beautiful, a wedding look that will be remembered for all the right reasons!

THE GLAMOUR AWARDS

Glamour Magazine bags the best celebrities for their front covers, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to their glamorous awards they pull out all the stops! Everyone looked incredible, I had serious outfit envy from every corner of the room.

Some of the most glamorous celebrities attended, everyone from Cat Deeley to Caroline Flack and Daisy Lowe. Although we are now technically in summer, from the look of the fashion choices not many people are in the summer mode just yet. Black dominated the event with mesh, satin and leather playing a huge part in a number of looks.

My favourite look from the event was Daisy Lowe, who wowed the red carpet in a black satin plunging 50s-inspired prom princess gown. She looked divine, I love the unique twist she brought to such a classic look!

Met Gala Ball 2014

The Met Gala Ball was full of the most amazing dresses, jewels and dapper suits!  This is one event where all the A-list celebrities pull out all the stops, in head-to-toe designer to grace their presents on that famous red carpet!

This year I was certain that the steps would be full of pastel ball gowns and top hats, as the theme was ‘White Tie and Decorations’ to tie in with the exhibition of designer Charles James. The theme was of course picked by none other than the brilliant Anna Wintor. We saw the opposite of pastels we saw bright colours, block dresses, beading and even feathers!

One of my favourite looks was led by Victoria Beckham who wore a strapless white column dress, although this look was not directly within the theme I loved the simplicity and the fresh cut lines.

Rachel McAdams opted for a blush Ralph Lauren column gown, while Anne Hathway went for a red hot Calvin Klein Collection crop top and skirt. Rihanna wore an all white ensemble showing off her incredibly toned mid driff!

I adored so many looks from last night, Blake Lively looked beautiful in a bespoke Gucci dress she oozed Hollywood glamour!
