Tangerine Dream…

No, this isn’t an article about the cast of The Only Way Is Essex, but about the tangerine trend that’s sweeping across the catwalk runways right through to the fashion rails in a store near you.

What a refreshing change to see Jennifer Aniston (the woman who wears so much black she may aswell be an undertaker) in this rather risqué, cleavage-baring, Vivienne Westwood orange dress paired with Christian Louboutins at her perfume signing at the beginning of May. Follow Jen’s fashion rules and finish the look with nude shoes and understated hair.

It seems Angelina Jolie not only shares Jennifer Aniston’s taste in men…The screen siren looked radiant in this elegant Jenny Packham gown at Cannes this year. Accessorising with simple Tiffany and Co jewellery (and Brad Pitt on her arm) she lets the dress do the talking.

Cheryl Cole may have been chucked from X Factor US, but she still hits all the trends and looks fabulous in this orange Giambattista Valli dress, Giuseppe Zanotti T-bar sandals and Vivienne Westwood sandals.

There’s no room for shrinking violets in this sensational citrus shade, so if the bold look is too much for you, wear it in one simple key piece, or stick to acid orange accessories. Check out TellusFashion and this orange jersey top for a subtle nod to the hottest colour on the catwalk or this orange cotton tunic if you want to put a more romantic twist on the trend.

Feel inspired by this juicy shade? There are loads of great choices to add a touch of vibrancy to your wardrobe. Get Angelina’s look with this Roberto Cavalli satin one-shouldered gown, go flirty and fun like Jen in this Diane Von Fusternberg silk dress or for a more casual look, these Ksubi Super Skinny jeans will look great with wedges to emphasise those perfect pins. Why not add a bright contrasting top to tick the colour blocking trend too?

Whoever knew being “tangoed” could be so stylish…

 


Fierceness

Bernard Chandran really knows the definition of fierce. His AW11 collection would make any woman empowered, confident and glamorous. In the new BFC space on Northumberland Avenue, Malaysian-born designer brought bold and confident pop colours, feathers and directional peplums. Hues of scarlet red, bright orange and fuchsia were shown on miniskirts in luxe fabrics and textures dramatizing the catwalk. Lace-up ankle boots designed by Guiseppe Zanotti colour coordinated the outfit completing the full on, in-your-face colour blocking.

Love the carpet/shrug she’s caring behind her. Fierce.

A plethora of fabrics were used including lace, leather, silk, jersey and velvet reinventing evening wear and creating texturised paneling. Silhouettes were nipped at the waist and structured with black patent leather petal-shaped overhangs that were more avant-garde then red carpet. Feathers floated down in shades of fuchsia and deep black as front rowers glared at each other in awe. My favourite piece was the all-in-one, jumpsuit covered in delicate black feathers and jewels highlighting Bernards Asian tradition and instinctive attention to detail.

With rumours that he’ll be moving to thr main schedule next season and celebrities like Mr Hudson, Diana Vickers and Keisha Buchanan seated front row, Chandran is undoubtedly one to follow.
