There is one artist I cannot wait to see hanging around the festivals this year and that is (in my opinion) a lady that defines ‘cool’; one of the most unique and stylish figures of recent years….Solange Knowles! Not only is her Tune ‘Loosing You’ one my favourite songs and videos Ever but her style is literally to die for. Most recently she rocked Field Day Festival in a monochrome trouser suit that most would find impossible to pull off. In fact her colourful, pattern heavy, clashing outfits would look too try hard on anyone else, but she is just too cool and always looks effortlessly chic!! Check out her blog MyDamnBlog, one look at the images of her friends hanging out, her band chilling and most importantly her wardrobe and you just want to be in her gang!! Maybe, if I donned an AW12 Prada trouser suit she would let me join in….please?!
Spotted for Glamour Magazine’s weekly Street Style! Wearing Topshop Trousers, Smerican Apparel Shirt, Zara Jumper, Office SHoes, Bimba and Lola Bag and Burberry Mac. Only wish I had smiled…..
Rooney Mara has come a long way since starring as Lisbeth Salander in the ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’. Not only does she consistently WOW on the red carpet but she has also been named as the new face of Calvin Klein’s Downtown fragrance. Rooney’s recent appearance at the Cannes Film Festival only confirmed she is perfect for the roll!! Purity at it’s best…..
Man of the moment JW Anderson must be eager to impress as he reveals his latest collaboration with Versus this week in New York. Taking over from Christopher Kane, Anderson has a lot to live up to; but I’m sure given his latest run of success he’ll do just fine! With Anderson winning the ‘Emerging Talent Award for Ready-to-Wear ‘at this years British Fashion Awards, Donatella obviously has her finger firmly on the fashion pulse – lets hope it’s reflected in the latest Versus collection….coming soon . . . .
This year the Met Ball – the most glamourous, fashionable red carpet event of the year, broke the mould; challenged the tradition and went PUNK!! What better way to celebrate this year’s New York Metropolitan Museum exhibition; ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ than inviting a host of celebrities/fashion legends to dress like an anrchist and stick safety pins through their Versace?!
However, after seeing the pictures I am a little worried about who actually received the memo!? Sienna Miller looked fierce in her fully studded Burberry Prorsum leather jacket whilst Miranda Kerr accessorised with a dangerously spiky Christian Louboutin clutch and SJP even turned up showing her underwear!! Special mention for Anne Hathaway who looked amazing debuting a punked up, bleached blonde crop to go with her vintage Valentino, Nicole Richie was definitely the punk princess of the night with Dree Hemingway and Leelee Sobieski rocking their own unique style – both showing true Punk attitude!
As for the guests who decided not to embrace the theme and arrived looking as ball gown perfect as ever….they just didn’t cut it; only the Punked made it onto my favourite’s gallery, these girls got it just right……..
