Blog Loving: Things You May Have Missed On Fashionista Barbie

Normally I do blog loving post for blogs that I have enjoyed that week, however with my crazy stressful week I have to admit that I haven’t had time to read other blogs, I have been consumed with my redesign. Due to all the changes, the downtime, and generally my quiet presence on Twitter this week I thought I would share some of my blogs from the past week or so, as well as discussing my fav Met Gala looks as I didn’t seem to get chance.

Met Gala

There are a lot of Met Gala blog posts, it was a great event filled with metallics, plenty of feathers, Gothic beauties, fruity shades, sexy backs, and lots of sparkles. I have to admit I have found it hard to narrow it down to my top five looks but here goes:

1. Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan Atelier (pictured above) – it was a hard choice between Nina and Karolina, but even though that sparkly Rachel Zoe gown was breathtaking, I am just loving Nina’s choices at the moment and this is a gorgeous custom-made gown, and another great look from Donna Karan.

2. Karolina Kurkova in Rachel Zoe – no one does OTT better than Rachel Zoe is what I used to say about her celebrity styling, and now it is true for her designs as well, this is a gorgeous gold number.

3. Diane Kruger in Prada – I really don’t think Diane can wear a bad look, this purple gown wasn’t what I was expecting, and that is why I adored it.

4. January Jones In Atelier Versace – everything from the colour, the mirrored panels, the structured hips and her sleek hair meant this had to be in my top five!!!

5. Gwyneth Paltrow in Prada – I feel bad leaving Emma Stone, Victoria Justice, Jessica Stam and even Rosie, but I just loved the embellished pockets on Gwyneth’s mini that I just couldn’t leave it out.

Who got your top five vote?

Before all the glamour of the Met Gala I shared my thoughts about the colours of Benetton and how surprised I was about what the store has to offer. I am interested to know what you all think about Benetton, visiting the store really changed my opinion on the brand.

Another shopping must has to be the new TOMS pop-up in Covent Garden, I wore my new floral wedges yesterday and they were so comfortable.

I am obsessed with posting pictures of cool windows around town, everything from Mulberry’s zoo to Louis Vuitton’s carousel, and even Jack Wills‘ Stella McCartney copy has been featured lately.

Plus the big news over the last week has to be my new look, and I would love to know what you all think.

I think if you check out all these blog posts you will definitely be up-to-date with all Fashionista Barbie news, and I promise lots of new content is coming!!!
