Oscar Glamour 2016

What a night! The stars looked amazing on the red carpet last night in Hollywood. Here are the All Things Stylish favourite Oscar looks……

Charlize Theron in Christian Dior

Loved this look – long, sweeping statuesque glamour. Perfect for Charlize. Old school Hollywood with a very modern neckline.

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

Sweet, fresh and unusual. Fairytale femininity. Love the drop earnings and simple hair. An elegant, unique look  – and perfect soft Spring shade!alicia

Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior

My dress of the night! Lingerie chic is back in and who knew how amazing well placed lace and serious voluminous ruffles could be? Paired with a knock out perfect platinum bob and seriously gorgeous make up  – this was channelling gothic glam Princess Grace for the 21st Century…..jen

Saoirse Ronan in Calvin Klein

I’ve always loved sequins and this colour is amazing. Perfect 90’s spaghetti straps with stunning fitted gown – Saoirse looked incredible. 70’s luxe meets 90’s cool with a chic homage to The Little Mermaid – even the hair is tousled perfection –  love, love this look. Sao

Margot Robbie in Tom Ford

I’m a big fan of the gold Oscar dress – in recent years they have been some of my most favourite looks – and this year the gorgeous confident Margot Robbie is a big style winner. Sleeves don’t often feature on the red carpet and this just shows how fabulous they can be. The silhouette is perfect 70’s glam chic – crossover, gold snakeskin, showing off that strong slender bod with all the right curves. Adore!

Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive

Cate exels at quirky feminity – her elegance and poise can carry off the most whismical creations – it just works. This soft pastel perfection is another big hit and such a cool spring shade. Very good.

Naomi Watts in Valentino

Just stunning! My favourite rich hue of the evening. This beautiful shimmering Valentino gown is just so original. Rich, elegant, after hours mermaid chic. Love that hair – stunning old Hollywood smooth wave and just the perfect necklace. Amazing!naomi

Top SS15 Trends To Wear Now

With Paris Fashion Week completing what has been a busy round of shows around the globe, we showcase the strongest trends from next season. Get one step ahead and work these into your wardrobe now!

White

It was a white out across the board, with heavyweights such as Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, Chloe and of course Chanel sending pure white looks down the runway. Winter white looks incredibly chic so this is one trend that is definitely worth pulling out now.

Faux Fur

Starting in New York with Tommy Hilfiger and Coach, this trend reached fever pitch in London thanks to cool new brand Shrimps. Londoner Hannah Weiland is taking faux fur to the next level, truly cementing it as the desirable option over the real stuff. The perfect look to try over the chilly autumn months.

Sporty

This isn’t exactly new for SS15 but it is one designers have held onto- great news for those wanting to get ahead in the style stakes as you will probably have sporty styles in your wardrobe already! To give it a new season twist, focus on mesh detail, white and flatform shoes.

Suede Boots

The sexy 70s look that has exploded for AW14 continues for SS15. Buy now to wear with skinny jeans and a fedora, then pair with a loose mini dress and lots of Paris Left Bank attitude come spring.

Chanel Mimosa Summer 2011 “Les Fleurs d’été” Collection

This summer’s new “it” color, Chanel Mimosa, instantly sparked my interest, even more so that very little info was available as to color accuracy, release date, etc. I finally managed to get my hands on some and here are the results.

I would suggest using 3 thick coats and letting them fully dry between each coat. To avoid unevenness and streakiness, make sure your first coat is thick and applied carefully. I love the colour for summer but it is a bit of a pain to apply 🙁

Fly In Style

I am due to fly back to the UK in a couple of weeks hence the inspiration for this blog post. It got me thinking about the early days of flying, when boarding a plane was a privilege and usually reserved for the rich and famous. Men wore suits and the woman, beautiful dresses, this is when people had class and style!

Flying in Style

Victoria and David Beckham are always impeccably turned out, but for the rest of us it is a much more exhausting process. Maybe it’s the extra security check points, customs and immigration or just all the waiting.  They all take their toll but whatever class you travel in, deciding on that perfect assemble can be a mine field and comfort is key.  Please, no more Ugg boots and sweatpants, save those for when you are at home or once you are on the plane.



1)Slip-on Shoes!
Most airport security check points now require you to remove footwear. I usually opt for a ballet pump or a flat slip on boot because trying to lace up anything can be a nightmare with the 100 people in line behind you staring on. As you can see previously in the images above Lauren Conrad and Sienna Miller agree and do the same.

2) Layers

Layers are key when flying as temperatures change frequently. Countless times I found myself at airports hot as can be running from one side to another trying to catch a flight…anyone flown from T5 at Heathrow?  You’ll know what I mean if you have.  Yet, in 5 minutes time of stepping foot on the plane I find myself shivering under the air conditioning which is oh so perfectly placed above my head!
In this case, one of my favourite layering items has to be my luxurious Chan Luu Cashmere scarf ($195-$245). It comes in just about every color imaginable as well as a variety of prints and patterns.  It is so useful as it can double up as a blanket or pillow and if you pick the right colour for your skin tone it can add a healthy glow to any jet lagged skin.

3) Comfort & Keep it Simple
In Winter I usually opt for a jersey legging like our LnA Olivia, or I wear my Hello Skinny Jeans in Dark. They are a stretch jean and hold their shape well. I would never recommend a white jean as no matter how careful I am I am bound to spill something and ruin them.  In Summer months I will definitely be sporting one of our divine Ducie dresses, soft and flowy and will not crease, even after a 12 hour flight the dresses still look fabulous and fresh.
4) Sunglasses and Large Tote
My final Flying in Style tip would be a pair of sunglasses and large tote bag
Carrying a big tote is incredibly useful for all of your items. I usually keep miniature items of make up to freshen up as I land, jogging pants in case I want to change, my essential fashion magazines and a large bottle of water to keep myself hydrated. As you head for your taxi grab those sunglasses and look effortlessly stylish no matter how tired you are!
Make-up and skin care tips to follow.
