Some best dressed celebs from the weekend, and one VERY questionable look…

With the MTV EMAs last night, The Governors Awards on Saturday and your usual amount of random premieres happening around the globe, you can bet your life there’ll be a few talking points when it comes to outfits.

You have to pick your faves though, don’t you? Which is what I’ve done. And I’ve been very selective. Starting with…

*Zendaya in Prada for a Glamour Women of the Year event in NYC*

THIS WOMAN! THIS BLOODY WOMAN! She just gets it right every. single. time. Giving us pure Diana Ross vibes, this trouser and top combo is pure perfection. Paillettes, check, feathers, check, fabulousness, CHECK!

*Lana Del Ray in Gucci at the MTV EMAs in London*

WOW WOW WOW. She just looks incredible. This wrap shape on her is the ONE! So vampy. So sexy. I can give or take the shoes, but the rest is a big YES!

*Mary J Blige in Cushnie et Ochs at the Governors Awards*

Now she has got super stylist Law Roach on board (he who is responsible for turning Celine Dion into yet another icon!), Mary is up there in the best dressed lists. This gown is just brilliant on here… the colours are incredible and the fit is fabulous too! Well done Law!

*Rita Ora*

And then there was this mess. What an utter tit! YOU AIN’T GAGA LOVE! This just looks ridiculous on Rita. I mean, it wouldn’t look much better on Gaga, but at least she has the conviction to pull it off!

But wait, scroll down, there’s more…

SHE ONLY PUT ON A BLOODY SHORTER VERSION, DIDN’T SHE???

Sick of all this chic…

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Not really!

I love it all. This blogging malarky.

Nearly a decade on and I’m still doing it. Maybe not as much, but still here, plugging away.

And it’s collabs like this one that make me happy – Ashish and River Island. I know it’s not particular new now, but it IS the first time I’ve put this sweater on.

And now I want the whole collection.

I might just buy it all. Just call me the poor man’s Isabella Blow.

Anyway, see the rest of the pieces here. P.S. they’re all unisex, even the dresses if that’s your kinda thing…

SS2018 MINI TREND ALERT: ZEBRAS!

_DOL0299

It’s more than monochrome. More than animal print. More than just a coincidence.

Designers have gone nuts for the zebra!

And you know how much I love anything animal related. Animals + fashion is just a no brainer!

In fact, I’ve seen flamingos (yes, I’m still obsessed with them), dogs, cats and giraffes too. But zebras more than any of the others.

Sooo people, remember to buy something, ANYTHING, with zebras on for next season. You’ll be the belle of the ball, the talk of the town, the zebra amongst the pigeons (OK, I made that up!)

Diva Watch: Cher x Gap…

It’s fashion week.

In other news, O.M.G. Cher has only gone and partnered with GAP.

Yep, you heard that right… CHER AND GAP. PARTNERED.

I have to be honest, I’m not entirely sure who Future is, but I love the concept of this. Icon meets idol. ‘Meet me in the Gap’. It kinda says what it does on the tin.

An unexpected partnership, bridging the gap between new meets, erm, older.

It’s funny though, some friends asked me what I thought of this, and when I said I thought it was genius, they responded by saying ‘denim is not very Cher though!’.

It actually really is. Find any of her off duty pics, and you’ll see she’s usually in a pair of bum-sculpting jeans.

Anyway, see some behind the scenes below, and shop the looks here.

[DISCLAIMER] I love tassels and fringing just as much as I love flamingoes.

ASOS have made me happy. For what better top to wear for a trip round Buckingham Palace than this one?

It might be labelled as ‘festival’ on the website, but I ain’t trotting off to a boggy marsh anytime soon.

Buckingham Palace IS my festival. You really should go and see the Royal Gifts exhibition, on now, until 1st October.

Get the Tee here, plus more amazing tasseled things!

Halpern: fashion’s newest iconic label

Screen Shot 2017-08-11 at 15.26.32

In my head I’d written this post a long times ago. I even had to search my own blog to be sure I hadn’t.

If anyone happens to stumble over a similar post on my blog about the amazing label, Halpern, do let me know.

Although two blogs still wouldn’t do it justice.

17tmag-halpern-slide-XJ1K-superJumbo

It figures that I would be taken with EVERYTHING Michael Halpern does. He cut his couture teeth working as part of the Atelier Versace team.

And you all know what that means… high fashion, lots of drama, lots of sparkle and lots of mesmerising creations.

Also, for this Autumn Winter 2017 collection, he cites Cher and Bob Mackie (designer, and longtime costumer for the diva) as inspirations.

HELLOOOOOO. THIS COLLECTION IS BASICALLY MY LIFE IN CLOTHES.

17tmag-halpern-slide-PMVL-superJumbo

If you’ve ever played that fantasy game of ‘what type of fashion designer I’d be’, Halpern would win for me.

The perfect fusion of camp/disco/tailoring/’70s/Cher. Sprays of emerald sequins up flared trousers, dramatic sparkly jumpsuits and draped bustier tops.

You can have a butchers at some of the collection over at Matchesfashion.com and Brownsfashion.com right now…

Today I’m Loving… JONATHAN ADLER EVERYTHING!

Image-1

Do you follow a blogger on Instagram? Anyone, doesn’t matter who.

If you do, you’re more than likely to have seen this new collaboration – Clinique and Jonathan Adler

Don’t know who Jonathan Adler is? HOW DARE YOU. He’s only the best homeware designer E.V.E.R.

Think camp colours, art deco designs and amazing quirks. He’s my absolutely favourite. What a FAB collaboration! The only upsetting thing is, nothing for us men! (Unless you wear makeup, which I know some of you do!)

Art deco designs. TICK.

Quirky packaging. TICK.

Amazing amazing. TICK.

By the way, my fabulous friend, Labels For Lunch, took these pics. She is the QUEEN at flat lays. How gorgeous are they?

Image-3

The lipstick packaging is my favourite. Those bullets of loveliness, with the iconic Jonathan Adler ‘Globo’ coloured dome on the end.

See more from the home Globo collection below.

So anyway, the Clinique range comes equipped with everything you need to look fabulous: colour kit, lipstick, makeup brushes, eye shadows and even a Sonic cleansing brush.

If you’re not familiar with Jonathan Adler’s homeware stuff, click here to see his site. And see my top picks below. It really is all amazing! And special mention to those art deco towels, perrrrfect for a beach holiday!

This Real Housewife is the new face of Beauty Blender!

In a world of celebrity and brand collaborations, it’s hard to weed out the really good ones and those that are, well, just a bit shit.

One designer, for instance, has decided to team up with a water filter AND a chocolate company in one week. I mean, seriously?

Anyway, I’m obsessed with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and obsessed with Erika Jayne, so anything she does is amazing. And being the face of Beauty Blender – that little round pointy sponge that people have become infatuated with – just makes sense!


Celebrating @beautyblender

A post shared by Erika Jayne (@theprettymess) on

 

Meet the Beauty Blender Swirl!

It’s a collaboration I can get behind, even though I’ll never buy or use the product. Erika Jayne (real name Erika Girardi), is not only part of the fabulous Beverly Hills cast, but she is also a singer, and has released some campery corkers! 

She’s amazing. And you can buy her Beauty Blender here.
