Sources revealed today that Clemence Poesy, fashion darling and actress, will be appearing in Season 4 of stylish US drama Gossip Girl. As famous for her impeccable sense of style as her time on screen, Poesy has appeared in both Harry Potter and Vogue in her time. Steal her look with these KG by Kurt Geiger sandals, there’s a sale on too so you’d better hurry! With the first two episodes of GG to be set in Paris, it seems Clemence’s French accent might have helped secure her the part of Chuck’s new girlfriend…
Jessica Alba has been papped out and about in LA sporting a new style. The starlet has swapped her usual safe pumps for a braver, bolder choice – a pair of Cherry Red Dr Martens. Normally a favourite reserved for edgier celebs such as Agyness Deyn, these boots add a tough edge to a simplistic daytime look. Since 1960 Dr Marten’s have represented alternative fashion in all its guises, from Mod to Punk, Factory Worker to Brit Popper, these boots have always meant business. Now being spotted on more A-List celebs than you can count, could this spurn an alternative breed of footwear for festival season? Maybe it’s time to ditch your wellies and do up your laces…
Real or faux, there has been a definite influx of celebrities rugging up in fur lately, especially after seeing it all over the catwalks as a major trend for Autumn/Winter. Kate Moss is one such culprit – although we’re willing to be that’s not faux fur she’s wearing! – but, despite this, we can’t help but feel there is something so cosy-looking, so chic about a bit of fuzzy-wuzzy fur. Or faux fur, if you prefer.
With a variety of shaggy, fluffy and feathered styles to choose from – simply throw on a jacket, coat or vest with jeans, leggings or an evening dress for that added bit of winter warmth.
We realize not everyone is in agreement on the fur issue, which is why we’ve given you a selection of real and faux jackets to choose from… products details below:
Velvet is just one of those fabrics which feels so right for the colder months. It’s festive, it’s luxe and we love that there is something quite rock n roll about it too! Velvet definitely made it’s presence felt on the runways for Autumn/Winter 09-10 at shows including Christopher Kane, Fendi, Prada and Stella McCartney. Stylistas everywhere (including the fashion-forward celeb crowd) have been jumping on it before we’ve even hit the heart of winter – so we expect much more to come!
A dress a la Jessica Alba, Emma Watson or Alexa Chung is a rather obvious way to wear velvet – be it a full velvet frock or simply with velvet accents or piping. Wear with opaque tights and ankle boots on those chilly days and consider mixing textures and adding some more rocker glamour by covering up with a leather motorcycle jacket.
Diane Kruger manages to go where not many would dare to follow in this Chloe velvet all-in-one… if you’re not feeling quite so brave, then try teaming some velvet carrot leg trousers with a crisp white shirt, or a loose velvet top tucked into a pencil skirt.
We’ve included some of our favourite velvet pieces below…
The jury is still out on on the sartorial choices of Twilight trio Taylor Lautner, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who were out in London last night celebrating the second installment in theseries, New Moon. We know Kristen and R-Patz love to dress down as much as possible in hoodies and jeans, so the fact that they’ve got shiny shoes on at all is indeed a plus *wink*
Kristen defied her usual penchant for wearing black and instead went for this colourful Spring 2010 dress by Proenza Schouler, an interesting look for the actress and one which actually works quite well against her dark hair and pale complexion. However, it’s her Sergio Rossi heels which are getting a lukewarm reception from many in the fashion and blogging world today – would you agree they’re a bit “blah”?
She was flanked by her dashing co-stars: Robert going for a fairly undone sort of look, with a open neck shirt worn under a casual grey coat, and Taylor (who is rumoured to be dating singer Taylor Swift), wearing a smart charcoal suit with an unconventional plaid tie.
What’s your verdict on their red carpet fashion choices?
Love her or hate her, you can’t deny Lady Gaga is a walking fashion fest that is hard to pull your eyes away from. Her latest music video manages to showcase so many bizarre outfits, we lost count. You will see everything in there – from barely there lingerie, razor blade sunnies, an amazing hologram dress and matching shoes from the Alexander McQueen spring 2010 show and even a polar bear cape. Watch the vid to get an eyeful of Gaga fashion craziness!
She’s had quite a year, our Rihanna. Hit songs, fashion moments and sadly, plenty of tabloid headlines. But it’s safe to say that after all her highs and lows, she has managed to come out the other side a prove she is a survivor and an inspiration to her many fans, hence why Glamour magazine honoured her as Woman of the Year at their annual awards ceremony.
She took to the stage to accept her award in this figure-hugging Stephane Rolland gown, which has divided many – is it creative and cool or car-crash couture? Vote below and let us know what you think!
