Cover Loving: Cate Blanchett In Celine For US Vogue

Vogue cate blanchett cover Cover Loving: Cate Blanchett In Celine For US Vogue %tag

It is strange that we haven’t even had Christmas yet and spring collections are already gracing covers. For January, US Vogue has gone for the gorgeous Cate Blanchett, one of my favourite red carpet stars, and she looks stunning in a Celine dress.

As well as loving the cover star, it is nice to see Céline on the cover, even though the French fashion house gets critical acclaim its doesn’t often grace covers and this arty, paint-stroke dress looks amazing,

For some, featuring Cate seems like a safe choice as a cover star, but for me her beauty means I will always pick up magazines with her on the front. As well as adoring the cover, shot by Craig McDean, I love the accompanying editorial with Cate wearing incredible looks from Dolce & Gabbana, Armani Prive and Nina Ricci.

Will you be picking up the January issue of US Vogue?

Twitter Love: Miley Cyrus In London

Miley cryus london chanel Twitter Love: Miley Cyrus In London %tagMiley Cyrus is fast becoming one of my favourite celebrities on Twitter and Instagram, this is a girl that really knows how to have fun, and I have been loving her piccies from London – from her Chanel haul to grabbing her crotch and even hanging off railings with her UK fans.

The ‘We Can’t Stop’ singer sported an all-black mini dress as she posed on Chanel’s floor surrounded by the brand’s black and white bags and tweeted the piccie with the caption: ‘’The damage is done ❤ @CHANEL.’’

What’s in the bags she doesn’t share, but I am sure we will be seeing lots of Chanel in her up-coming press tour around Europe. Seriously only Miley would pose lying on the floor of the luxury French boutique!

As well as trips to Chanel, the former Disney starlet has also been showing off her unique style, from a hilarious pose with fans clinging onto railings in a black crop top and pencil skirt and that gorgeous metallic-gold Celine shoulder bag to a monochrome McQueen look along a very packed suitcase in her hotel, and my favourite outfit pic has to be ‘Business’ look with Miley grabbing her crotch, flashing her abs, as well as bit of under boob with the tweet: “Ain’t worrrrrriieddd bout nothin but my my #bizzzznassss”.

Miley certainly has had fun with her fashion in London.

I really just love her fun attitude, some have been a little hard on Miley lately – but come on this girl is only 20-years-old why can’t she have fun, and come on if you could wouldn’t you buy enough Chanel that you needed two assistants to load up the car???!!!???

British Designers Collective: Alexa Chung In Bella Freud

AlexaChungBicester1 British Designers Collective: Alexa Chung In Bella Freud %tag

Who: Alexa Chung

Where: At the British Designers Collective pop-up boutique launch at Bicester Village

Wearing: A black merino Bella Freud ‘je t’aime Jane’ jumper, which on the reverse stated ‘Gainsbury is God’, teamed with a floral Celine skirt from the resort 2012 collection, and finishing off her look were black Nicholas Kirkwood loafers and a leather jacket

Verdict: I am going to be honest as much as I love this jumper and floral skirt combo, and I do love it a lot especially the sweater with its homage to Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg’s legendary love affair, I just can’t get past how skinny Alexa looked and her knees just scared me.

There is no doubt that Alexa has style, I love her laidback chic look, but what I can’t help but wonder when I look at this picture and when I saw her in person on Wednesday at the launch is if she was too skinny.

What do you think?

Somewhere: Sofia Coppola Wears Pre-Fall Louis Vuitton

sofia coppola 500x752 Somewhere: Sofia Coppola Wears Pre Fall Louis Vuitton %tag

Who: Sofia Coppola

Where: At the “Somewhere” preview held at Louis Vuitton in Tokyo last Saturday

Wearing: Well seen as it was at Louis Vuitton it seemed only fair for her to wear LV. Sofia opted for a navy pre-fall Louis Vuitton dress, with its furry texture and black leather belt nipping in her waist, finished off with Celine wedges and carrying a Louis Vuitton alligator clutch

Verdict: For some reason I really love this dress, part of me thinks I shouldn’t but I have to admit the navy draws me in *seems to be a little bit of an obsession of mine at the moment*. The furry concept of the dress could be a little tacky, but I think the colour and the silhouette with the skirt kicking out ever-so-slightly makes it an elegant cocktail dress.

What do you think? Do you love or hate this dress?

3 Events 1 Night: Champagne, Canapes And Lily Allen

Thursday was a busy night in London, there were so many launches, parties and openings that it was hard to fit everything in, but I managed to get to three great events: Mina UK’s store opening, A. Sauvage launch at Matches and the unveiling of new grooming product KINGS at Kettners Champagne Bar.

First stop, Mina UK’s store opening on Great Titchfield Street, and what a nice shop it is. It has a vintage vibe which is perfect for all the cute dresses, but what I was surprised about was how big the store was.

It was nice to visit it especially as they had Oreo and Malteser cupcakes which was a much needed treat, I also got lots of lovely Lush products in my goodie bag. If you like vintage-style dresses then this is the place for you – I can’t wait to go back and try a few on.

From there I went to the lovely Matches to check out the new menswear line, This Is Not A Suit collection from A.Sauvage. Designed by Adrien Sauvage with TV presenter George Lamb as the muse and business partner, this range pays homage to great British tailoring.

The lovely George Lamb was in attendance looking dapper in a suit, but the highlight for me had to be seeing a fresh-faced Lily Allen. Admitted she didn’t stay long, just a quick stop and circuit, but hey she looked amazing in this cute 50s-style floral print Prada dress with fitted bodice and full skirt – teamed with super high black heels and just in shot a gorgeous Celine blue tote.

I also loved the fact that quirky badges were handed out, you could either be a ‘Captain’ or a ‘Native’, of course I had to be a ‘Native’. Then there was the amazing summery cocktail, dark rum and ginger beer – which was still on my mind the next day as a drink that I have to recreate in the garden.

Check out more pictures from the evening at Matches Facebook page.

Last stop and great way to end such a great evening was the launch for KINGS, the new men’s grooming collection that is coming exclusively to Boots this week. I know two menswear events in one night, but I couldn’t resist Kettner’s Champagne Bar which is such a good venue for a launch. It was a jam-packed affair, so sitting on the window ledge was the best view of the party *the jealous, wish I had thought of that was priceless*.

It was quite a mixed crowd of fashion and beauty peeps as well as models mingling with the crowd presenting the new KINGS products, and it had one of the best atmospheres I have seen at an event in a while, maybe the heat, champagne and pumpkin canapés helped – but really I think it was down to the fact that designer Henry Holland was down to DJ.

Each venue had very different music, as I was leaving Mina UK they were playing Holly Valance, Matches went for a more high-end of music taken from an iTunes playlist – but the best was by far Henry Holland’s set with Michael Jackson and Take That.
