I’m constantly on the look out for emerging talent, oversees designers, and those designers doing something a little different to shake up this crazy world that we call fashion. For today’s blog I’m going to share with you the three designer I’m currently crushing on – from a new red carpet star, Rosie Assoulin, an exquisite Australian designer Alex Perry, and what looks like the cosiest knitwear ever by Ryan Roche.
It sounds a little cliché, a fashion blogger who loves Audrey Hepburn, but come on, no-one can deny that she is an icon, whether that’s of fashion or movies, and I love that she is the focus of a new photography exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London, ‘Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon’.
The exhibition, which runs until October 18, features more than 70 images, exploring her early years, her dance career, her celebrated film career, those iconic fashion editorials and campaigns, as well as her humanitarian work. It really is her life story captured beautifully by some of the best photographers, including some of my favourites, from the likes of Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, and Norman Parkinson. The exhibit even features her last major photo shoot taken by Steven Meisel in 1991, which is one of my favourites of the movie star.
The summer has a lot of perks, the best of which has to be going on day trips, especially when that includes seeing lots of adorable animals, pretty gardens, and historical houses, so you can imagine my excitement at taking a day trip to Longleat as it literally has it all. I can’t believe this was my first visit, I do love an animal park, especially one that has rhinos and penguins, as I said a day trip to Longleat is one full on day.
A fun day out needs an equally fun outfit, which is why it was only fitting that this beauty of a fringed bag from Karen Millen had to come out to play, isn’t it so beautiful. I know the 70’s has been a key theme this summer but I’m really surprised by how I have become full-on obsessed, we’ve had off-the-shoulders tops, the denim pinafore, and the giant flares, so it felt right to try the denim midi, probably the only denim skirt style I didn’t own.
We had been having a pretty good summer, gorgeous sunshine, mini heatwaves, everyone smiling, and then sadly as my summer technology vlog was finally ready of course the rain and cooler weather came out. I have looked at the weather forecast, BBC please be right, and apparently Blighty another heatwave is coming at the end of the month, yeah, so my mini reviews of the top summer gadgets, including a clutch-sized camera, a floating speaker, dope headphones, and a purse that can charge your phone will come in pretty handy to enjoy the lovely outdoors.
