Cover Loving: Diane Kruger In Hugo Boss For Vogue Germany

Diane Kruger Covers Vogue Germany july14 Cover Loving: Diane Kruger In Hugo Boss For Vogue Germany %tag

I do love a magazine cover that portrays movement, it always makes it more striking and appealing, and this is one gorgeous cover from Diane Kruger for Vogue Germany’s July 2014 issue.

Captured by Camilla Akrans, who always seems to impress me, Diane Kruger really does make a fairly boring sequinned top and skirt ensemble from Hugo Boss’ autumn/winter 2014 collection, the first designed by Jason Wu look amazing. It just shows what styling, setting and movement can do for a piece of clothing.

I also think the fresh pastel pink colour helps this cover, it really shimmers nicely, and I love the fun pose from Diane and how they’ve made the Vogue letters all quirky. I also have to say her hair slicked back and minimal make-up just add to the charm of this cover.

You might also be thinking that the look seems a little familiar to you, well that will be because Diane wore something very similar to the Met Gala, I really think if her Met Gala dress had been in this cute girlie colour it would have stood out more.

What do you think – are you a fan of Diane Kruger’s latest magazine cover?

Shopping: The Outnet’s 5th Birthday Collection

14083209404 5e554894e2 o Shopping: The Outnets 5th Birthday Collection %tag

Can you believe that The Outnet is only 5 years old? For me it seems to have been around for as long as its higher-end, exclusive big sister Net-a-Porter, and it really has come a long way since its days as just a clearance outlet. Yeah it has always been the place to go for a designer bargain but the past 18-months or so I have really found it a go-to site when shopping for any occasion, not only for discounted gear but also for its Iris & Ink in-house collection of luxury staples and its accessories are always so incredible, my last few designer handbags have come from The Outnet.

So to celebrate its 5th Birthday, The Outnet has teamed up with 17 amazing designers including Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Chloé and J.W.Anderson to produce a collection featuring their re-issued, best-loved pieces and I basically want everything!!!

A few weeks ago I got to check out the collection, basically imagined spending away my wedding fund, and styled up a few of my favourite pieces, which is hard when the line also includes Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu, Nicholas Kirkwood and Haizhen Wang and starts at just £130.

Of course I instantly fell in love with the accessories – the Squeeze It’ patent-leather Alexander McQueen clutch is to-die-for, I love it so much and the £357 price-tag isn’t bag for a classic piece like this, and pair it with those Nicholas Kirkwood panelled suede heels for £318 and you have some killer accessories to jazz up any look. I also loved the classic dark-brown Chloé wedges, a bargain at £225, I think these will be an instant sell-out, as will the statement Oscar de la Renta resin and gold-tone floral necklace, £265.14082714225 ecb54725af o Shopping: The Outnets 5th Birthday Collection %tag

If I had to pick a look from the collection that I would love to wear I think it would have to be the Haizhen Wang black leather jacket, the shape at the back is gorgeous, teamed with the romantic floral-print silk-jacquard Jason Wu dress, paired with those stunning Nicholas Kirkwood heels, and the bold red Oscar de la Renta necklace. I would love to throw in the McQueen clutch but that might just be a little too much!!!

There were also a couple of great looks to wear to a summer wedding for an elegant affair why not try Roland Mouret’s sky-blue O’Hara dress, the colour and fit of this dress is perfection, I really love the folded neck detailing and exposed zip down the back. While a cool, hip wedding you could go for this fun printed silk and moiré pencil Preen by Thornton Bregazzi skirt, team with a white blouse or a crisp white T-shirt and bright accessories.

There are just so many options with this fabulous limited edition collection, but trust me don’t wait around long I think most of these pieces will be instant sell-outs.

Which The Outnet 5th Birthday collection pieces do you have your eye on?

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Jaime King In Jason Wu

Who: Jaime King

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A strappy black embellished Jason Wu gown featuring a plunging neckline and a sheer skirt with a central split, teamed with a coordinated Jason Wu belt, Christian Louboutin heels, a gold-lined minaudiere, and black and gold jewellery

Verdict: Channelling Old Hollywood was definitely the biggest trend from last night’s Critics’s Choice awards, whereas the others seem to be romantic and feminine I love that Jamie went for an edgy and vampish take on the trend.

This was probably one of the sexiest looks of the night, I love the central split in the sheer skirt, it just makes her legs look like they go on for miles. I am also a big fan of the black and gold combination and this look really grabbed my attention.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Opening: Diane Kruger In Jason Wu

Diane kruger 3 Jaeger LeCoultre Opening: Diane Kruger In Jason Wu %tagWho: Diane Kruger

Where: At the Jaeger-LeCoultre Vendome Boutique opening in Paris

Wearing: A blackless navy lace Jason Wu jumpsuit with a black belt hot off the spring/summer 2013 catwalk, teamed with black Giuseppe Zanotti heels and of course a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – what a jumpsuit. I love everything about this look from the navy colour to the lace-luxe, to the gorgeous tailored silhouette of the jumpsuit, but most of all I adore her retro 40s-inspired hairdo and red lips.

I love how Diane can channel old-Hollywood glamour so perfectly, this look is another reason I seriously crush on this girl, she always seems to get it right on the red carpet and she makes it seem easy to rock a jumpsuit, which most of us over the size of 8 will no isn’t.

Jumpsuits have had a lot of attention this year on the red carpet, Kristen Stewart was just seen in a peek-a-boo lace jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad on her Twilight tour, Emma Stone wore a glitzy Elie Saab tuxedo-style jumpsuit to the London premiere of Spider-Man, Elizabeth Banks rocked a black jumpsuit to the MTV Movie Awards, and at the start of the year Rose Byrne put herself in the spotlight in a vintage white embroidered Elie Saab beauty with a deep v-neck at the SAG Awards. All amazing looks.

It doesn’t matter how many times I see a jumpsuit on the red carpet I adore it just the same, but I am putting this navy lace number by Jason Wu right to the top of my best dressed jumpsuits as I love how glamorous it looks on Diane.

What do you think of Diane’s retro curls and jumpsuit look?

Cover Loving: It’s Britney Biatch!!!

BritneyElle Cover Loving: Its Britney Biatch!!! %tag

I don’t hide the fact that I absolutely love Britney, no matter what this girl rocks for me, and I can’t wait to add the October issue of ELLE to my very large collection of Britney Spear magazine covers.

Styled by Joe Zee and shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Britney looks incredible in this studded Versace dress. Granted it isn’t the most original of covers, it isn’t going to push Gwen Stefani’s ELLE UK cover off my best October cover, but I do love how hot Britney looks in these shots.

In the accompanying editorial, the X-Factor judge looks ready to hit the stage in one of the shots as she works The Blonds Swarovski-crystal-embellished bloomers, with a Dolce & Gabbana satin bra, a striking blue Jason Wu leather jacket and cut-out satin Roger Vivier boots. But it was the appearance of her fiancé Jason Trawick that surprised me – I have to say it, they do look cute together.

In the interview Britney chats about her fiancé, how she doesn’t care about the paparazzi anymore, and her laid-back fashion style:

“I love my jeans and my sweats-I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup-and hair-ready every time I  go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch.”

I can’t wait to pick up this issue – what do you think of Britney’s latest magazine cover?

Plastic Loving: Melissa Adds Jason Wu And Gareth Pugh

SS12Melissa11 Plastic Loving: Melissa Adds Jason Wu And Gareth Pugh %tag

I have kind of gone a little crazy over the Jason Wu for Target collection that I totally forgot that the New York-based designer has also teamed up with Brazilian plastic shoe brand, Melissa. Both shoes are based on pre-existing Melissa bestsellers, my favourite the Ultragirl ballet flat, and the Lady Dragon peep-toe sling-back, with both coming with a Wu injection – the ballet flats with a Miss Wu owl logo bow and a sunburst design is adorned on the heels, which has come directly from Wu’s autumn/winter 2011 collection.

Both styles are available in black, merlot, and putty, with the flats also coming in a nude smoke design as well, and all feature lace printed lining, which looks cool on the wine coloured ‘merlot’.

The plastic candy-smelling brand is also continuing its collaboration with Vivienne Westwood with new colours for the iconic Lady Dragon heart adorned sling-backs; and new for spring is a graphic collection with British designer Gareth Pugh featuring his signature zig-zag print.

The Gareth Pugh collection comprises of two styles: a flat peep-toe Ultragirl adorned with his signature zig-zag print; and a gladiator sandal which comes in combinations of black, white and silver – both inspired by the designer’s spring/summer 2009 collection.

From the Melissa White collection – my favourite has to be these yellow printed Melissa Peace wedges – how cute are they!!

Top Picks: From The Jason Wu For Target Collection

JasonWuTarget2 Top Picks: From The Jason Wu For Target Collection %tag

I do love a designer collaboration and I have been excited about the Jason Wu for Target collection since it was announced last year and even more so since I saw the lookbook. Full of flattering dresses, pretty blouses, floral prints and quirky tote bags this is one of the best affordable designer lines I have seen in a while. Don’t get me wrong the Versace for H&M was amazing, but this is all completely wearable and timeless.

It is times like this that I am sad that I don’t like in America!! The collection drops on February 5 and trust me it is going to fly off the racks.

The full lookbook is now online at Target’s Facebook page and these are my top picks – the navy dress and that cute kittie tote are gorgeous.
