My Style: Superhero Denim Shorts

my-style-denim-shorts-5

For a long time denim shorts have scared me, you see my thighs are not ideal for shorts in generally but certainly not bum-skimming denim ones, well that was until this summer when the high street finally added those extra few inches – yeah for everyone over a size 8!!!

They might be called Mom and Boyfriend shorts but I don’t care, they cover my arse, thank god, they fit around my chunky thighs, and the best bit is that they are high-waisted, so cover a multitude of sins while still being summery. It is like all my previous years of hoping to find the perfect pair of denim shorts have finally been answered.

Asos have some beauties, as does Topshop and New Look **see below for my top 10**, but it seems that everyone else has gone crazy for this style that my size always seems to be out, so I snapped up these ripped boyfriend shorts from River Island when I saw them.

I did buy them for my honeymoon, did I mention I get married in 3 months – probably – sorry, but with the lovely weather we have been having I decided to give them a test run at our local kite festival. As they are the superhero of all denim shorts it seemed only fitting to pair them with my fun superhero T-shirt that I picked up at Primark, it seems I can’t resist a statement tee and this one is perfect for a sunny afternoon.

Finishing off my look are my trusty Calvin Klein sunglasses, I love that they are so big, and my new Sorel festival-loving boots, they are just perfect for wandering across the rough terrain of the heath to see all the fabulous kites – the horse one was definitely my favourite.

Have you found your perfect pair of denim shorts?

Cover Loving: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue

VF-Hollywood-issue-2014One of my favourite covers of the year has to be the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue, I love seeing which stars have made the cut, the poses, the amazing fashion, and of course seeing who stands out. Last year didn’t wow me, OK it was great seeing Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck in bed together, but this year’s is more glamorous and I love it.

For the 20th anniversary cover of the Hollywood issue, Julia Roberts shows off her fabulous legs surrounded by Chiwetel EjioforIdris Elba, and a very dapper looking George Clooney. But the really cover doesn’t really wow until you see the whole three-panel foldout with the statuesque Lupita Nyong’o, who is really shining in her slinky gold Calvin Klein gown along with Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Naomie Harris.

The cover shot by Annie Leibovitz also features Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson, Chadwick Boseman and Lea Seydoux for a very elegant Hollywood look at the best stars of the year.

Which star stands out for you on this year’s Vanity Fair Hollywood issue?

Critics’ Choice Awards: Lupita Nyong’o In Calvin Klein

Lupita-nyongo-calvin-klein

Who: Critics’ Choice winner Lupita Nyong’o 

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A custom ivory silk Calvin Klein Collection bandeau dress featuring cut-out detailing, teamed with a gold box clutch

Verdict: I love it when Hollywood newcomers outshine the old guard during award season, the winner of the best supporting actress award wowed at the Golden Globes, but I think this Calvin Klein bandeau dress is her best look let – she looks flawless.

Everything from the bandeau style to the cut-out detailing and the crisp white colour – I love this look from head-to-toe – she really is red carpet perfection.

I loved Margot Robbie in Elie Saab and Amy Adams’ pop of pink in Roland Mouret – but for me Lupita is hands down my favourite red carpet look from this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Cover Loving: ELLE US Hollywood Issue – Reese, Penélope, Melissa & Shailene

ELLE-US-Nov-pcruz-2

American ELLE’s Hollywood issue is one of my favourite magazines to pick up as I love the mix of actresses they go for – and this year is no exception with Reese Witherspoon, Penélope Cruz, Shailene Woodley, and Melissa McCarthy all gracing the cover.

My favourite cover this year is a difficult choice – between Penélope Cruz, who looks stunning wearing a cashmere sweater by The Row and Chopard jewellery – I love how they’ve kept her make-up to a minimal to show off her adorable freckles, and Shailene Woodley, even though this cover looks set for summer rather than autumn wearing Calvin Klein Swimwear there is something different about the pose that makes it stand out.

Reese Witherspoon’s cover is probably the most predictable, but nevertheless she still looks stunning in a sexy Versace number. The cover I think I was most disappointed with was Melissa McCarthy styled in an oversized Marina Rinaldi coat with OTT eighties hair – I can only imagine how much hairspray they used.

Online there also seems to be another two covers featuring Marion Cotillard working the crop top trend in Dior, and British actress Naomie Harris looking absolutely gorgeous in a Calvin Klein Collection wrap halter top and skirt, very similar to the one that Rose Byrne wore to the Primetime Emmys.

Considering this is a November cover there is a lot of skin on show – especially with the main fashion tagline being ‘the perfect coat shape’. It is hard to decide on my favourite but I think it has to be Penélope Cruz as she just looks gorgeous and is really the only one, except for Melissa wearing anything autumn related.

Which cover is your favourite? Also do you think these covers seem more appropriate for spring/summer than November?
