Cover Loving: Victoria Beckham For ELLE UK


I love, love, love the March issue of ELLE UK starring Victoria Beckham and so it seems does everyone who follows me on Twitter. This morning I tweeted a picture of the subscriber issue that dropped through my door and everyone went a little crazy for it and with good reason it is the best ELLE cover for a while.

When I saw the newsstand cover last week, see below, with VB wearing a Burberry leather jacket with a lace body I was blown away by how incredible she looked, but I was completely floored with the subscriber cover – wow, wow, wow – that Hussein Chalayan neon peplum top looks insane on her.

We’ve seen Victoria Beckham look amazing before on magazine covers, I have to be honest I do have a girl crush on her, but there is something special about this shoot snapped by Carter Smith that I love. The styling is cool, VB wears not only her own designs but also spring/summer 2013 looks from Lanvin and Miu Miu, I love her hair long, and I think I need to try out Burberry Beauty as they did all her make-up.

I haven’t checked out the whole magazine yet, I haven’t even finished my first flick through as I wanted to share the cover, but the mag has had a little re-vamp I have noticed it in the fonts and layout and it is looking good, and this March issue is huge with more than 400 pages. Now all I need to do is find a quiet spot to take it all in!!!

So what do you think of the Victoria Beckham covers and will you be buying the March issue of ELLE?

Do you have a passion for fashion? If you just answered yes, like I did, you need to keep on reading as I have a great competition from Money Supermarket. I love checking out the latest trends, and I love even more when I can work the catwalk trends at a more affordable price, and autumn is one of my favourite times of year as I get to layer up!!!

If you are a fashion blogger who also enjoys scouring the internet for hot shopping picks and piecing together your dream outfits for the latest trends you are going to love Money Supermarket’s fashion competition, Passion for Fashion, where you can win £1,000 and an iPad 3.

How to enter:

It is simple to enter, all you need to do is put together five different outfits for the following categories: party, casual, outdoor, first date and office wear – basically you are creating the ultimate autumn/winter wardrobe.  As this is for Money Supermarket you need to be wise with your budget and each outfit should be under £200 and be put together from your favourite online fashion retailers. Also don’t forget this is a complete look for each category – so don’t forget shoes and accessories.

Once you have gathered your dream looks, write a blog post explaining why you choose each part of your outfit, what trends you were looking to replicate and detailing where your looks came from. Once you’ve published your blog, drop a quick email with your URL to passionforfashion@moneysupermarket.com by September 24.

There will be six winners; one for each category, winning £200 each to spend on the outfit they’ve put together. There will also be an overall winner who will win £1000 to spend on all five outfits, as well as an iPad 3.

Getting started:

I’m excited to be judging the Outdoor category, so to get you inspired and give you an idea of what I am looking for here is my example of my Outdoor look:

One of the biggest trends for autumn/winter 2012, Town & Country is inspired by the country, textured fabrics, earthy tones, and equestrian touches. For me the best of the ‘town and country’ trends came from the likes of Burberry, Ralph Lauren, and Chloe, each were inspired by English tweeds, Fair Isle knits, equestrian details, and woodland creatures. This is a category that the high street really has really taken hold of and you could go in so many different directions. For my example look I have decided to focus on one of my favourite Burberry looks. I haven’t replicated it completely, instead I have put my own twist on the look,  and I even managed to keep under the £200 budget!!!

New Look Khaki and Faux Leather Sleeve Jacket, £44.99 // Simeon Farrar Fox with Shirt and Tie T-Shirt at ASOS, £55 // Matalan Horse Skinny Buckle Belt, £3// ASOS Leather Single Strap Backpack, £35 // Lipsy Tweed Peplum Skirt, £35 // Barrats, Two Part Brogue Style Mid High Court Shoes, £15 // Butterfly by Mathew Williamson at Debenhams – Secret Gold Rabbit Adjustable Ring, £6.

Grand total = £193.99.

Basically, take the trend, make it your own and find it all for under £200 – I am so excited to see what direction you all take for Outdoors.

Met Gala 2012: Rosie In Burberry

Who: British actress and Burberry Body Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Where: At the Met Gala 2012 in New York

Wearing: A long-sleeved copper and black draped-back tulle Burberry gown with hand-embroidered glass beads, teamed with a gold clutch

Verdict: Last year in a vibrant pink silk Burberry gown Rosie stunned me, and even though this is a more somber colour it is just as sexy. One thing I will say is when I saw it on the live-stream I love the way it shimmered, it doesn’t however photograph as well, which is a real shame as this is a gorgeous gown.

I really don’t think RHW can do anything wrong, she has the perfect body, great elegance, and everything about this look is diving, especially her hair, very chic – LOVE it a lot.

A Dangerous Method: Keira Knightley In Burberry Prorsum

Who: Keira Knightley

Where: At a screening of her new film, A Dangerous Method in London earlier this week

Wearing: A burgundy Burberry Prorsum gown with keyhole detail, an open back and black bow belt from the pre-fall 2012 collection, teamed with a Chanel quilted clutch and a black ring

Verdict: As always Keira really does bring an elegance and sophistication to the red carpet. What I love about this understated gown has to be the winter hue of the dress, there has been a lot of white, nudes and brights on the red carpet but it is always nice to see rich tones on floor-skimming gowns. A great return to the red carpet – can’t wait to see her styling on her promotional tour.

Shop Her Style: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Paige

Who: British bombshell Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Where: Out and about in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A pair of Paige High Rise Bell Canyon flared jeans in Breckenridge, with her go-to leopard print scarf, a dusky pink blazer, and a knitted jumper; teamed with a nude Mulberry Evelina leather satchel from the spring/summer 2012 collection, matching nude boots and finishing off her look are Burberry 3051 aviator sunglasses.

Verdict: I do love it when celebrities do dressing down so well and I am loving this shade of pink teamed with dark denim – it just looks so fresh. Add in the stylish leopard scarf and those hot sunnies and this is a great look from head-to-toe. Oh, and I can’t forget that gorgeous Mulberry satchel – love the colour, the shape and it works against the dark denim and pink.

Buy Her Style: Lets get back to the denim, which are gorgeous and are uber-flattering, not that she needs any help in that department. Paige jeans are one of my favourite denim brands and I have had my eye on these high-rise flared jeans for a while, mainly because they are made from light-weight slim fitting denim that is super comfortable, oh and I am a sucker for flares.

I could only find the Breckenridge shade on the Paige USA site for $199; but if you love the style but prefer a more casual distressed shade then you are in luck as Donna Ida has the Marine style in stock for £205.

HTC Rhyme: Leighton Meester In Marios Schwab and Burberry

Who: Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester

Where: At the HTC Rhyme launch party held at the Highline Stages in New York

Wearing: A gorgeous long-sleeve black dress from Marios Schwab’s Resort 2012 collection, which had an ‘under-the-sea’ graphic print to the skirt, paired with Burberry Prorsum heels

Verdict: It isn’t often that I am at a party that I actually get to speak to the celebrity about what they are wearing. This week thanks to my HTC Adventure to New York I actually spoke to Leighton Meester about her fab look, which I loved. The dress was amazing, I loved the print on the skirt it really did stand out, but for me and it seemed everyone at the party Leighton’s look was all about those to-die-for heels. I just loved the tribal-vibe they have going on with the draped beaded detail to the front.

Not only was Leighton completely stunning, I have to admit I did fall in love with her more when I saw her in Harrods a few months back, but speaking to her and having my pic with her was cool. Granted not an amazing pic, iPhones really do suck *joking*, but hey it is a great keep sake from a fabulous night!!

More to come from my amazing HTC Adventure in New York, just editing pics and finishing up all my copy.

Transformers 3: The Beauty That Is Rosie

As you have probably seen Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon is full swing with its promo tour, so far stopping off at Rio, Moscow, Berlin and then last night in London. All eyes I think have been on British beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, not only to see what she is wearing, which may I add has been impeccable, but to see if she can live up to the Megan Fox hype!!

I for one can’t wait to see the film and I have to admit I think I have developed a little girl crush on Rosie especially as she hasn’t put a foot wrong for her promo wardrobe, I have love every single piece.

I think my favourite so far has to be what she wore last night. No surprise that when in London she would turn to Burberry, she was once their face, and I am so glad that she did. Rosie wore a gorgeous custom-made satin midnight blue backless Burberry gown slashed to the waist and a plunging neckline, seriously stunning!!! I just love those embellished halter-neck straps that continues as one piece down her back.

Prior to London the Victoria’s Secret model wowed at the European premiere in Berlin, in this jaw-dropping backless silver sequined Naeem Khan gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection. I adore sparkles especially on the red carpet, and I think Rosie has the right idea here by making it more old-school Hollywood glamour with her soft waves draped to the side. I also love that this floor-length gown has short sleeves, it adds something different to the look, the only think I would have done different is gone minus the belt, it works from the front but that open back deserves more.

I even adore this long sleeve Stella McCartney dress that Rosie wore to the Germany press conference, the plunging neckline still adds a bit of sex appeal but is reserved enough for the occasion. Teamed with pointed-toe nude Christian Louboutins, as if she needed to lengthen those legs!!!

I adore the Burberry gown, but this Gucci dress from the autumn/winter 2011 collection is a close second that she wore to the Global Premiere at the Moscow Film Festival.

Completely different from her other looks, she really is a designer dream, and she has worked her designers, colours and styles well this promo tour. This look works for me because of the sheer skirt, I just think it is a completely sexy look without being OTT, and then you scan up to the bodice and I fall in love again with that gorgeous mustard shade and floral appliqué. Totally chic, I love it from head-to-toe.

I am so glad that Rosie wore this Barbie pink Michael Kors silk-jersey dress from his spring 2011 collection as the fuchsia colour looks just divine on her, as does the thigh-high split!! Seen on the runway in flats I am glad that Rosie went for heels, these nude-pink platforms complete the look perfectly.

In Rio, Rosie also went for Michael Kors, this time a chic black race-back jersey gown team with a black leather asymmetric belt, both from the autumn/winter 2011 collection. I also love that she finished her look with these black ankle cuff stilettos also by Michael Kors they look exquisite with the thigh-high split.

Which Rosie look is your favourite?
