Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball: Carey Mulligan In Victoria Beckham

Carey mulligan victoria beckham Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball: Carey Mulligan In Victoria Beckham %tagWho: Carey Mulligan

Where: At the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, held at the Rockefeller Center in New York City

Wearing: A black Le Smoking tuxedo trouser suit by Victoria Beckham, featuring slashed cape-style sleeves and deep-V satin lapels from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Tiffany jewels from the Blue Book Collection and black pointed Mary-Jane Saint Laurent heels

Verdict: With nearly everyone else at the Tiffany ball opting for flowing floor-length gowns it was refreshing to see that Carey Mulligan opted for something a little different, a bold masculine look in a chic Le Smoking tux.

Not only was this a bold choice, the slash is very revealing adding a sexy touch to the masculine tailored look, but I have to be honest I was a little surprised to see it on Carey. However, I love to be surprised, and I really did love her look, which was finished off perfectly with a pair of delicate Tiffany drop earrings.

There is a big but though, why the tired face, it looks like she isn’t wearing any make-up in a bad way, which really doesn’t make any sense – why get dressed up, add some bling courtesy of Tiffany’s and then forget to refresh your face with a little make-up.

Is it just me? Is her barley-there-could-be-missing make-up throwing off this whole look? Or do you think the nude make-up and minimal updo adds an edge to the masculine Le Smoking tux look?

Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway In Prada

Oscars anne hathaway tiffanys Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway In Prada %tag

Who: Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A custom pale pink satin column Prada gown, featuring a high neckline, an open back, and a slit to the back of the skirt, teamed with a Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim’ clutch in blush satin with crystal buckle, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and a Tiffany & Co diamond necklace from the 2013 Blue Book Collection, Lucida earrings and diamond bracelets

Verdict: With Anne Hathaway an odds-on favourite to pick up the Best Supporting Actress gong, which she did win last night, I was expecting something dramatic, a statement, something that would wow me.

Unfortunately this Prada gown left me underwhelmed, it isn’t that it is an awful dress it isn’t, it is pretty, a little too much like Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Ralph Lauren from her Oscar win, but it just didn’t have the wow factor of an Oscar winner – it was a little too safe.

The back was a little more interesting, just, but I think her floral Tiffany & Co necklace seemed to conflict with her criss-cross straps of the open back of the dress, I like the idea of the back necklace but it just didn’t work for me as much as it did for Jennifer Lawrence.

There was talk that Anne was going to wear a Valentino Haute Couture gown, even the fashion house thought so, but she dismissed claims saying that she chose the Prada three hours before the show – but it has left me wondering what the Valentino would have looked like!!!

My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week

OOTD LFW Day3 gap My Style: Day Three At London Fashion Week %tag

Day three and the sun has been shining all day, granted still not that warm, but I don’t mind shivering when it is bright. Once again, another look, another shade of pink – so we’ve had a bright pink jumper, bright pink accessories and today I went for my new Gap blazer which I picked up in the sale last weekend.

Considering a blazer is a wardrobe staple I only seem to have two very ill-fitted ones so I thought it was time to invest for fashion week as you can dress an outfit up or down with one and lots of my friends recommended Gap. When I saw this bright pink beauty I couldn’t resist, even more so when it was £20 off – serious bargain that I am sure to wear all-year round.

As the trim of the blazer is a dark grey I thought it would make the bright pink stand out even more if the rest of my outfit was charcoal grey and black – and I think this is one of my favourite looks for a while.

As you know if you follow me on Twitter I love jeans but like most people I struggle to find styles that fit and look flattering and a number of my followers answered my pleas for help and suggested Uniqlo, a shop I love for t-shirts but have never tried for denim, but I have seriously been missing out.

These dark grey beauties are from the super soft, super stretchy skinny range, and I can assure you they are exactly that, they are just so flattering and for a long time putting skinny jeans on didn’t make me feel instantly fat. Plus they are super long, I have them turned up as wearing with boots today, but in the summer I will actually be able to wear jeans with flats and not feel like I am showing half my leg off!!!

Finishing off my look is my trusty Osprey London bag, this is so perfect for fashion week – classic colour, classic design and fits everything from my iPad, tickets, make-up, chocolate, phone, diary, notepad, pens, etc, etc, in, as well as my Ice-Watch, which sadly has the wrong date on it, my Topshop ankle boots that I am literally wearing to death, and a new statement necklace from New Look.

My Style: Day One At London Fashion Week

My style LFW day1 My Style: Day One At London Fashion Week %tag

Today has been a busy day, tons of shows, catching up with friends some of which I only seem to see twice a year, being pampered at The Apartment run by friend Abi – the lovely girlies at Rimmel did my make-up, and for the first time in about eight seasons I actually got street style snapped – not once but twice, seriously small pleasures really do make me smile.

This fashion week I have decided to work some of the trends/looks I love most right now, first up is boyfriend jeans, granted I would have loved to wear a strappy heel with them but the cold made me go for my comfortable, wear in any weather Topshop ankle boots. I must have tried on about 20 pairs of boyfriend style jeans on the high street, and 19 of them look awful, but then I tried these ‘Sexy Boyfriend’ style at Gap and I fell in love with them.

What I love about this look, other than the fact I was extremely comfortable, has to be the pop of colour from my Primark jumper, which worked perfectly with the gorgeous white broderie trim shirt from the Glamour for Very collection, and the super cute Angelica London necklace that I picked up at Task PR’s LFW gifting suite last week. I also really adore my new Mickey Mouse ‘Mmwwaah – seriously how cute is that.My style LFW day1 close up My Style: Day One At London Fashion Week %tag

Christmas Windows: A Trip Down London’s Bond Street

Cartier christmas Christmas Windows: A Trip Down Londons Bond Street %tag

I love Christmas and one of my favourite activities is to wander around London and check out all the amazing window displays. I love how retailers always step up their creativity and this year is no exception. I will be bringing you the wonders of the department stores such as SelfridgesLiberty London and Harrods, but first I wanted to take you on a trip down London’s Bond Street and bring you my favourite festive displays from the likes of Mulberry, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany’s, and Cartier who have literally wrapped up their store.

Tiffany & Co:

Basically this is a look inside the perfect Tiffany & Co town house – starting with the Tiffany blue door to the striking chandelier, and the grand entrance. I think Barbie would definitely approve!!!

Mulberry has gone all gold, scattering its windows with oversized padlocks, keys and Christmas cards to place inside the Mulberry postbox.

One of the highlights of my Bond Street wander had to be the Fenwick windows, which were dark, sparkly and very different – I loved the Gothic edge and how the clothes and accessories reflected in the wall covered baubles.

Who: Miley Cyrus

Wearing: A bustier-style strapless gold number by Jenny Packham

Verdict: Her poor posture lets this dress down, also is it just me who thinks that this gown is too old for her she is only 16. I like the frock just not on the Disney princess.
