Beauty Bytes: Chloé’s Fringe Love Affair

SS14 chloe 3 Beauty Bytes: Chloés Fringe Love Affair %tag

I have a love-hate affair with my fringe, when cut well I adore it, when cut badly or getting too long I despise it – but seeing Chloé’s stunning spring/summer 2014 campaign makes me realise how much I do love fringes.

The care-free seventies feel to this ‘last weekend of summer’ campaign is perfection, not only do I wish I was a Chloé girl like Lou Doillon and Julia Stegner, I also need to know the key to their impeccable bangs.

Each shot is amazing, I love the contrast between the blonde and brunette styles, but my favourite shot has to be how their fringes sit behind those oversized sunglasses – now if only I could look as chic with my out-of-control hair!!!

Do you have a love-hate affair with your fringe?

Shopping: All About The Scallop Detailing

Chloe09 Shopping: All About The Scallop Detailing %tag

Like with pleating there is something feminine and delicate about scalloped detailing that gives clothing an instant summer boost for me. Everyone from Victoria Beckham to Jill Stuart, Missoni and DvF have used scalloped detailing in recent years, but one collection that always makes me think of scallop hems has to be Chloé’s spring/summer 2009 collection. British designer Hannah MacGibbon created a gorgeous feminine line that even now keeps on influencing the high-streets summer offerings, and even Kate Bosworth as spotted reviving her Chloé SS09 shorts recently.

I don’t know why but scalloped hems are perfect for making a plain tee or shorts look fun and interesting, plus it gives any look a girlie vibe without being too girlie if you know what I mean. Whether it’s on dresses, separates, or accessories the high street is full of great options and I have picked out my favourites.

Trend Alert: Sneakers Hot Property For 2012

sneakers Trend Alert: Sneakers Hot Property For 2012 %tag

Sneakers, hi-tops or trainers, whatever you want to call these casual flats you are going to see a lot more of them this year. Designers including Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Chloe and Miu Miu have introduced them into their sports luxe inspired collections with sparkling results that have led to very long waiting lists. Don’t get me wrong I love a statement heel but sometimes a comfortable flat is just what you’re after, if you are fed up with brogues and ballet pumps then I suggest you try out an old-school sneaker!!

1. Miu Miu, Patent-leather high-top sneakers, £325, Net-a-Porter.com

2. Converse, Rainbow print hi trainers, £43, Schuh

3. adidas, Midiru court mid ii trainers, £60, Schuh

4. Ash, Cool wedge coral suede trainer, £139, Ashfootwear.co.uk

5. Chloé, Suede, leather and ayers high-top sneakers, £365, Net-a-Porter.com

6. Lanvin, Diamond-print canvas and leather high-top sneakers, £430, Net-a-Porter.com

7. Michael Michael Kors, Black MK City High Top, £110, My-Wardrobe.com

8. Isabel Marant, Willow High-Top Sneakers come in Beige Noir and Black Blue, they are currently out of stock everywhere, but I hear that they are hitting stores again in February.

9. Be&D, Big City Sneaker, £85, Beandd.com

What to wear with your sneakers with? Well why not team with a chunky sweater dress or with your skinny jeans and a statement blouse, or why not add a sport-luxe vibe to your maxi skirt or dress. Seriously there are so many possibilities.

Still unsure, well it seems that hi-tops are the latest celebrity ‘It’ shoe with the likes of Alicia Keys, Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway spotted in the covetable Isabel Marant styles. For the more affordable price I love the Ash copies – they come in a number of colourways but these red ones really stand out – also the hidden wedge means that you still get the height!!!

HTC Rhyme: Charlize Theron In Chloe

CharlizeHTC1 HTC Rhyme: Charlize Theron In Chloe %tag

Who: Actress Charlize Theron

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

Wearing: A gorgeous jade green Chloe dress from the Resort 2012 collection, teamed with gladiator-style flats and an olive clutch

Verdict: Charlize may have only graced the party for a matter of minutes, and her publicist might have been a bit of a pitbull, but wow was it amazing to see Charlize up-close-and-personal as she is simply stunning. I love this casual vibe from her, the drawstring tie waist was perfect for the very relaxed environment at the HTC party, and I loved her even more for not wearing heals, now if only we had consulted before hand!!!

Leighton Meester made a beeline for Charlize as soon as she came in, seems unlikely circles to mix in but they seemed very familiar and happy to see one another. Out of the two looks, I think Leighton pips her for best dressed of the night.

Making of videos are sometimes better the complete article for me, I think it is because I am intrigued by how the fashion creatives make me shine when I watch the finished product. This ‘Love, Chloé’ new fragrance advert looks amazing, not only does model Raquel Zimmermann look flawless, I am in love with the camel trousers and shirt – so chic.
