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!)
Fancy yourself as a bit of a trendsetter? Then get ahead of the fashion game and head on over to Tellusfashion for a unique way to wear the hottest trends, safe in the knowledge that you won’t meet 3 other people on the same night wearing the carbon copy of your outfit! For some fabulous fringing check out this White Fringe Dress or Camel Coloured Halter Neck Maxi Dress. For a knockout mini then try this vintage style Faded Rose Dress. All designed by Ekaterina Kukhareva who puts emphasis on using fringing and beading in her designs-perfect for the 1920s look!
What do you think of this forthcoming trend? Will you be vamping it up in the vintage look? Tellus…
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…
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…?

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!
It’s time to channel your inner wild child this Fall, as animal print is making a big statement this coming season, and it’s a lot more wearable than you may first think. Whether you choose to look lovely in leopard, sexy in snake or zesty in zebra there’s a print for everyone. As always the celebs are already at it, so which print will you be working this Autumn? Tellus…
Never one to look anything short of fabulous, Kate Moss looks incredible in this Lanvin Snake Print dress. Pairing the dress with a Chanel handbag, Christian Louboutins and a white blazer she pulls of effortless glamour to a tee.

Good old K-Dash is never one to miss a trend and she works it very well in this floaty zebra print dress. With sleek hair and her chic Birkin bag she brings sophistication to the animal print trend, which is more than can be said for her next look…
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.
So go on, take a walk on the wild side…

But luckily for you, and us, London College of Fashion has come up with the ingenious creation of their very own Pop Up shop, aptly named College Shop. Having pitched up camp at in Kingly Court the store will be stocking everything; womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories and jewellery, Illustrations and photography, all of which have been designed by recent London College of Fashion graduates.

Prices will start at £20 and go up to £400 – a budget easily achieved by students and editors alike.
Running for three weeks, opening on Thursday 8th September 2011 (coinciding with Vogues Fashion Night Out), it means it will be open leading up to Tellus favourite week of the year. So, if you do find yourself lacking in the ‘catwalk invitation department’, grab yourself a real piece of fashion of a possible future front row favourite.
