Dressing up braids

I love when people wear braids and add feathers or some sort of adornment to it.

Cut out panels

I saw this dress on Beyonce today and thought it was gorgeous.  Its sexy without being OTT and its perfect for summer. I hope ASOS brings its own version soon!

Crazy in Love: Beyonce and husband Jay Z stepped out in Paris today to have lunch near the Champs Elysees where the singer showed off her lighter hair#

Sexy outfit: The Dreamgirl looked delectable in a strapless patterned mini-dress with cut out panels which gave a hint of her very toned midriff
Bey Bey starts trends.

Royal Wedding pre-view, Sophie Cranston starts trends

I have never heard of her, but it sounds like some lady called Sophie Cranston is going to create THE dress - you know, the one Kate Middleton is going to beam to 9bn plus people on her wedding day.  But, heres the fun part, Kate Middleton has designed the dress herself and it sounds really pretty: ".... it is ivory satin and lace, with a pearl button detail and a 10ft train.....Renaissance period...a nod to the iconic Emanuel wedding dress worn by Lady Diana Spencer, but has avoided including any of its ‘flounce’".

So I looked through Sophie Cranston's wedding dresses and she has a really lovely design handwriting that is soo Kate Middleton, elegant, simple and classy - this is not a Jordan wedding.... I think she'll look amazing:




Festival Gear (from Coachella)

Its that time of year again, when celebs and wanna-be Woodstockers flock to the Coachella music festival to get their hippy shakes on. There were some interesting looks coming out of the festival and I thought I'd do a little commentary on a choice few:

Closing the show: Kanye West closed the music festival with a stunning performance of some of his biggest hits

I love this shirt, it's a  good step forward for guys who can pull it off....

Retro style: Dita Von Teese looked sweet in an orange and white printed dress and espadrille wedges teamed with a sailor hat     Retro style: Dita Von Teese looked sweet in an orange and white printed dress and espadrille wedges teamed with a sailor hat

Dita Von Teese looked like a swag French sailor geisha.....think it worked for her, i'm not sure it would work for anyone else.

Cuddling up: Former Home and Away star Isabel Lucas couldn't keep her hands off her boyfriend    Cuddling up: Former Home and Away star Isabel Lucas couldn't keep her hands off her boyfriend

Isabel Lucas looked splendiferous - a bit Love Story slash 60s Praire flower girl. I think she has an interesting style, its a bit left of field and she seems set to become the new Sienna - that chick that people follow and proclaim has a new way of dressing.
Sisterly love: Paris also posed up with sister Nicky, who looked cute in a leopard-print dress

Ok, so technically I should be hated for putting these two up but sometimes less is definitely more and I think they were both rocking two good festival looks.

Arthur fashion

I'm really liking elements of the Arthur look - namely braces, the bowler hat, slightly unbuttoned shirt.  I can see iST people referencing parts of the Arthur look this summer. . .



Apparently Russell's 'Arthur' style is based on Lapo Elkann's wardrobe. I read about this Lapo guy on Wikipedia (where else). He's very 'The Beautiful & The Damned', he basically sounds like a right donut but a donut in need of a hug. He's got this very Italian meets French Riviera boating club look going on. I find it a bit much but its very well done.

You get the drift - Lapo's a very stylish guy....
