Very vintage…

If you’re reading this blog then you’re obviously a super-stylish fashionista, and unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past 2 weeks it can’t have escaped your knowledge that we are entering the third of the four most fashionable weeks in the fashion world calendar. New York and London have been and gone and now Gucci opened Milan today with a deliciously dark show that paid tribute to its twenties origins. With sequins, flapper style dresses, drop waists, fringing and art deco motifs, it’s just a matter of time before this new trend goes viral in celeb land! (In fact a reliable source told me that French Connection showcased a fabulous flapper dress at Bristol Fashion Week only last night!)

Peep show…

Seems all the A-list our holding their own private peep shows this week with cut out dresses being the pick of the crop for coveting their fabulous figures. Beyonce wasn’t going to let a little thing like pregnancy get in the way of her style credentials as she appeared at the opening of the Tony Burch Madison Avenue Flagship store.  Pairing both leather and cut-out detail in her edgy dress, she was at risk of looking that little bit too risqué but she kept it classy with the long length of the frock. Kim Kardashian  appeared at New York Fashion week watching her half  sister Kendall’s catwalk debut in her striking silver number and Rochelle Wiseman flew the flag for the Brit girls showing off her impressive cleavage in her Celeb Boutique dress.

Want to get your own cut-out couture? Then head on over to Tellusfashion and check out this Baby Cut-Out dress. Not for the faint hearted, you’ll need to start on those sit ups now! Just remember that the more daring the dress the less outrageous your hair and make-up, keep it simple and chic!

So what do you think of the cut-out trend? Will you dare to bare? Tellus…


Lady in Red…

I’ll be the first to admit that I was more than a bit excited to see not one, not two, but three of my biggest girl crushes; Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez and Eva Longoria on the cover of  October’s issue of Latina magazine. Celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of the publication, 15 lovely Latin ladies posed alongside each other in designer red dresses, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘lady in red.’ Other beauties snapped on the cover included Shakira, Gloria Estefan and Zoe Saldana.

A great red dress has the ability to transform even the most shrinking violet into a sex-siren, so why not  rev it up in red and sizzle into Autumn by heading over to Tellusfashion? This Red cocktail dress by Esse-Elle’s stand out colour will allow you to get noticed but the chic and elegant cut and demure length stops it from being tacky. Likewise this dark red little lace dress by Guillermo Leon oozes sophistication but with a fiery and sexy twist. If however, you’re not feeling brave enough to embrace all over red, then a red clutch or red shoes will add a pop of colour to your outfit.

So what do you think of the raunchy red trend? I  love the cover, my only issue being where are Eva Mendes and Penelope Cruz…?

 

 


Back to Black…

The A-listers channeled their inner dark angel’s at this years VMA’s, with deliciously dark tones ruling the red carpet. Ok, so it may not be the most fashion-forward trend of the moment, but nobody can deny the timeless elegance (and trusty faithfulness!) of the LBD. A fabulous black dress is a great investment as it’s not a faddy trend that will fall off the fashion radar quicker than the time it takes you to have the overwhelming urge to punch Jedward in the face when they appear on your TV screens.  And these celebs look anything but dull, each choosing to add a unique touch to their LBD’s.

Britney is in great shape at the moment and this Moschino sequinned dress is the perfect way to showcase her fab new figure. If only the dress was a touch longer and the less said about those Gina patent peep-toes boots the better. Not only are they hideous but they also make her calves look a lot more shapely than they really are.

Rocking a broken foot like only Jessie J can, one of Brit School’s finest exports pairs her fancy crutches and intricately detailed cast with a bejewelled black leotard.

For a woman with such lovely taste in fashion, it beggars believe as to why Selena Gomez’s taste in men is so…off the mark. Anyway, Selena looks gothically gorgeous in this Julien Macdonald number. Teamed with gold pumps and understated hair-the perfect combination for the dramatic dress.

 

Want your own affordable unique LBD? Then head on over to Tellusfashion. This classic Little Black Dress is a timeless design made from Jacquard fabric from designer Sovacolletion. If you want to stand out from the crowd then make like Jessie J and get your hands on this Daly Opaque from Eyola. Customise and bejewel it up and you’ll have a look ready to rival the A-list!


Welcome to the jungle…

Good grief, from fab to drab in the shake of a (leopards? zebras? cheetahs?) tail, how the mighty have fallen. Ms Kardashian shows us how NOT to wear the animal print trend, showing that sometimes even the best get it so very wrong. The all over print of this Roberto Cavalli is hard to pull off especially if you’re blessed with the Kardashian curves and let’s not even discuss the tasselled bag thing…

 

Want to check out some fantastic up and coming designers take on the animal print trend? This Printed Tunic & Silk Skirt contains flashes of leopard print for her subtle but sexy take on the trend. Designed by Nicci, her designs are a unique alternative to high street clothes who takes inspiration from all different kinds of sources.

Everybody’s starry eyed…

Star motif clothing: No I’m not reminiscing about childhood fashion when the highlight of being dragged around the shops with mum was a trip into Tammy Girl, excitedly clutching a bag with a cute kitty/heart/star motif t-shirt, but the current Dolce and Gabbana print that the celebs just can’t get enough of…

The runway was saturated in stars back in February when Dolce and Gabbana showcased their Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection.

Literally everybody has been seen in this playful print from Jessica Alba to Lily Allen to Lucy Liu showing  just how versatile and wearable the trend is, but who wears it best? Tellus

Jessica Alba looks glowingly gorgeous in her head to toe Dolce and Gabbana halterneck gown. Choosing a smaller star print in monochrome she shows just how much of a yummy mummy she is-she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Haven just 13 days later!

How effortlessly gorgeous does Ashley Tisdale look in this oversized D&G jumper and cut-off shorts? She works casual airport chic to a tee, teaming the knit with tan flat sandals, oversized sunglasses and Louis Vuitton luggage.

Fergie adds a splash of colour to the starry look at the Teen’s Choice Awards in her yellow and black long-sleeved mini, it’s just a shame she chose the same colour combination for her barnet…

Be a star in your own right and hit the High Street to find affordable versions of this popular trend. If you’re more shrinking violet than shining starlet then you can incorporate the look into your accessories. Like the idea but want to add your own unique twist to it? Check out this Starfish Dress, but take my word it’s not for the faint hearted-you need some serious fashion mojo to carry off this look…


Hell for leather…

The Teen Choice Awards held last weekend showcased many a trend from bright colour blocking, sophisticated monochrome to clean whites. However the biggest style statement came from the likes of Blake Lively, Tyra Banks and Elizabeth Banks who certainly toughened up the style credentials by hitting the Red Carpet in risqué leather…

Blake Lively sizzled at the Teen’s Choice Awards in an orange Gucci Resort 2012 leather mini. She teamed the dress with amazing leopard print Christian Louboutins pumps, bronze make-up and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.

Tyra Banks cut a striking figure on the red (or should I say blue?) carpet in this Thierry Mulger leather catsuit. Describing her look as a “fierce bumble bee” on Twitter, the supermodels get up did have an air of super-hero chic to it. I’m not completely sold on the look but applaud Tyra for her bold and certainly not boring style.

Actress Elizabeth Banks wowed at the awards just 5 months after giving birth to her son Felix, wearing a fitted 2012 Resort J.Mendal dress to the awards. She Paired the look with fiery red lips to match her dress and nude peep-toe platforms.

Like what you see? Then head on over to Tellusfashion and check out these leather looks from our fantastic up and coming designers. This black leather dress  is a bold look that will definitely get you noticed on the dancefloor. After all, brains behind the brand Esse-Elle, Sebastian Löjdkvist mantra is “Less is not always more…Less can very often, be a bore!” If the all over leather-look is a bit daring for you then this short leather skirt would look amazing with a simple white blouse like the ivory silk jersey top. Designed by Caitlin Paxton, she creates interesting, beautiful garments that are able to become part of every elegant woman’s wardrobe.
