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…
It’s here. The September issue of US Vogue has hit the news stands.
If the cover is anything to go by, shot by the now ‘Mrs Hince’s friend and fashion photographer, Mario Testino (who was official wedding photographer for the day), the readers are in for a real treat. The pages of the magazine are doused with portraits and pictures from the most anticipated wedding since the ‘other’ Kate tied the knot – and Tellus has to say, Mossy gave Middy a run for her money.
Capturing tender moments between blushing bride and (many, many) bridesmaids, guests and delicate details that made the day, the snaps are backed up by an article by Hamish Bowles who reported on the day and who also managed to get an interview with the ‘Just Married’ model. If that wasn’t excitement enough John Galliano, one of Moss’ closest friends and now infamous (maybe for all the wrong reasons), comments in the article on the big day – which he designed the dress for, obviously.
There isn’t much more that Tellus can say on the matter – the pictures say a thousand words, and more….
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.
It was announced by the Met, New York this year that Alexander McQueen’s exhibition is the eighth most viewed exhibition that has been put on at the musuem in its 140 year lifespan. What an amazing achievement for the designer and what a way to show how treasured he was a designer, artist and creator.
TellusFashion love McQueen as much as any other fashionista/fashionisto and we still get goosebumps looking back at his collections through his career. Its fair to say that Sarah Burton is doing the designer great justice and has exceeded expectations in the seasons following his death, but I don’t think she will ever be able to surprise and shock us in the way that McQueen once did and truely deliver to the same extent of McQueen collections we once knew. As a fashion lover, I believe that his death is still a major loss to the industry and I don’t get the same excitement before a collection. TellusFashion are happy to see that his collections are still so significant and that they are appreciated as much as the likes of Picasso*.
Take a look below at some of Alexander McQueens most influential garments which were showcased at the New York Museum…
*Picasso was recorded within the Top Ten exhibitions at the New York Met.
With all the September issues hitting the shelves and seriously damaging our pockets, Tellus decided to take a look glance at the A/W Catwalks; the looks that caught our eyes for all the right reasons, and all the wrong…
The Good…Posh Spice, always the one little girls never wanted to be is now the one that every Fashionista is dying to be! Feminine, complimentary and so damn wearable, Victoria Beckham can wave goodbye to the days of being a WAG, as after her A/W collection she is definitely a fully fledged designer. Juggling being married to the most yummy man in the world, nursing a new baby whos wardrobe we’re already jealous off and creating an in-demand fashion emporium; Mrs Beckham is the epitome of Girl Power.
The Bad…Bad Girl we mean, obviously. Marc Jacobs added less sugar and a lot more spice to the Louis Vuitton A/W collection, with fetish being flavour of choice. Fetish style hand-cuffs, a multi-mirrored floor and sex fueled supermodels wearing deliciously naughty clothes caused more than a stir. As if that wasn’t bad enough Britain’s favourite Bad Girl Kate Moss took to the catwalk wearing nothing but some underwear, attitude and a cigarette hanging out of her mouth.
The Ugly…we sincerely hoped that Christopher Kane was monkeying around when we saw the Gorrilla-esque arms take to the catwalk at Burberry Prorsum – imagine two furry beasts attached to each arm. But when Yves St Laurent and Versace followed suit, it seems the fashion world has gone bananas for the shaggy sleeves. Less top banana and more mouldy banana.
Fed up of the rain and this poor excuse of a Summer? Then inject some sunshine into your life with the hottest colour of the moment. Bright canary yellow hues are everywhere from dresses to shoes to handbags, and never ones to fall under the style radar, the celebs have been out in full force dressed in this bold and summery colour.

It’s a Topshop special this week as both ex-TOWIE star Amy Childs and Myleene Klass stepped out in this Topshop Skater style dress. Both British beauties looked gorgeous in the £46 dress, which soon flew off the shelves and is now currently out of stock! Essex’s favourite leading lady wore the dress knotted at the waist with a plaited brown belt and black patent pumps, while Myleene paired her’s with beige platforms, aviator sunnies and an oversized leopard print handbag.

Style icon Olivia Palermo shunned designer couture in favour of this Topshop midi dress to attend the Giambattista Valli haute couture show in Paris back in July. Adding her own style twist to the £40 dress, she added tribal necklaces and a Charlotte Olympia box clutch.

Designed by Esty Lingerie, creations are luxurious and feminine, perfect for the woman who wants a bit of glamour in her underwear drawer.Brains behind the brand Estelle Puleston set up online boutique Esty Lingerie back in 2009 as a store where every woman could find what she was looking for, including basics right through to burlesque and ultra-luxurious pieces.
The italians have style. Whether it’s because of the hot weather, the siestas or even the abundance of delicious food, they’ve got it. Cool to the extreme, painfully stylish and confident – they own it all.
It is no wonder why, then, that many-a-fashion house has been born and nurtured in Italy, resulting in the take over of the rest of the fashion world. Exhibition Masters of Style: Celebrating the Stories behind Italian Fashion at Somerset house has encapsulated all the most influential Italian haute houses; Gucci, Missoni, Armani, Dolce and Gabbana, Ferragamo and Prada (to name all six that feature) through images. With all houses having personally hand-picked images from their collections, advertisements and photo-shoots, they are going on a journey looking back through their image archives. Masters of Style is on a mission to breath life back into these iconic fashion moments, bringing an insight into the influences and evident passion behind their most iconic work.
This exhibition coincides with the 150th anniversary Italy’s unification in the whirlwind that is the fashion industry. Curated by Peroni Nastro Azzurro in partnership with esteemed fashion commentator and Daddy Fashion himself, Colin McDowell.
