Lily Aldridge

Hi guys!

This post features American model and mother to a cute baby girl... it's Lily Aldridge. We mainly know her as one of the Victoria's Secret models of course. By the way, imagine your mum as a part time Victoria Secret model. How surreal would that be!? It was the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show in New York recently and she looked amazing with her American flag wings. So wonderwoman!

If you guys haven't seen the show and would like to you can catch it all on youtube :) it will definitely make you dislike yourself for a good while...

She has a very elegant style. She always look sexy and glamorous in a glamour model way. I love her dip dye hair; I think is more subtle in a good way. This is a shot of her on a casual day out a few days ago wearing a simple yet chic yellow blouse and leather pants.
Yellow is my favourite colour of all time, I don't know why! Not many people like yellow but I love when I find a yellow top that will look good on me and I certainly would love to buy myself a yellow sports car if I have the chance ;) I'll have a yellow lamborghini thanks. Lily definitely suits the yellow and as yellow is the colour of the SS13 season it's definitely a good idea to start looking into what yellow items you're going to purchase! For an idea, here is some sexy yellow blouses that I found on Asos that are similar to what Lily has on here. They're on sale too. (all images taken from

Pair with some leather and you're good to go. I hope you like it! You can find the items here:
Blouse with pintucks

Kate Bosworth for Topshop

Hey guys!
How are you all doing? I've been having a bit of a hectic week with uni but i'm back with another post and this week it features another beautiful lady... she's just been announced to be the new face and voice of Topshop's first ever Christmas campaign... it's Kate Bosworth! How exciting! Topshop's first ever Christmas campaign.

Over the last few days Topshop has been creating a stir over social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram by teasing the public with silhouettes and obscured shots around London of who the face of the campaign will be. The infamous hashtag #whosthatgirl has got people around the world trying to guess the lady in the shots and it has finally been released today that it is 29 year old beautiful actress Kate Bosworth. I have to admit I was guessing for quite a long time while looking at the shots on Instagram and I could not figure out who it was at all! Here is a video of her in Topshop's first ever Christmas film entitled Winter Wonderland

The video is inspired by the famous piano scene from the film The Famous Baker Boys starring Michelle Pfeiffer. She's got such a stunning voice, I never knew she could sing! Anyway, visit Topshop's website to see more of Kate Bosworth and the campaign :)

So, as you can see because of all this I have been very Kate Bosworth inspired this week. This is a picture of her outside a Burberry show this year. I LOVE how she's styled the jumper with the chic pencil skirt. The owl jumper is from Burberry's AW12 collection. For those who are looking for a high street version I have found an alternative below :)

The outfit can pretty much be fully found from French Connection :) I think it's a very good alternative!

You're welcome ;)

Miranda Kerr

Hey everyone!

The celebrity featuring in my post this week is none other than the pure beauty Australian model and Victoria Secret Angel, Miranda Kerr.

You always manage to see Miranda topping any of the top 100 sexy lists just because she is so beautiful! Esquire UK even gave her the "Sexist Woman Alive 2012" award. I think many models and especially the VS Angels, have their own trademark when it comes to their look and modelling style. For Miranda Kerr, it is definitely her dimples. Famous celebrity photographer (who has worked with many celebrities and fashion models such as Tyra Banks, Naomi Campbell, Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen) said in regarding to Miranda: "The US have fallen in love with her. We love her because she has the most incredible girl-next-door look and she's also insanely beautiful. It means women are not intimidated by her looks and guys think they might be able to talk to her. It's a fantastic combination... people want to be around her; she's fun on a shoot... and she's not stupid, which can be a very annoying trait among some models."

I think it is so true, she has a very soft and delicate face which is enhanced by her dimples. Basically, I am jealous and always wish I had dimples. I sometimes manage to convince myself that I have dimples by smiling a certain way... but people just tell me I look weird instead. Annnnyyywaaaaaay...

Apart from being a natural beauty she's also a naturally able fashionista. She's another one of those effortlessly stylish women! Here is a photo of her shot a few days ago that I found on :)
SO CUTE! I love girly, cute looks like this. For her day out in New York she wears a denim jacket over a white shirt and a skater skirt. She wears brown ankle boots and tops it off with a felt hat and ponyskin shopper.

If this outfit inspires you, here are some alternatives that I've found available on the High Street currently!

The bag is my favourite part of this outfit :) I hope you like it.
You can find the items here:
Wedge ankle boots, New Look £24.99
Skater skirt, Topshop  £16
Shirt, H&M    £12.99
Fedora hat, River Island  £15
Denim jacket, H&M   £14.99
Faux fur shopper, Whistles (available on Asos)  £175

Hey guys!

One thing that I can't live without (yes this will be very cliché) is my music! (It might surprise you but I love to sing and perform... even though sadly I don't really do any of that anymore). There have been so many good albums come out recently that I've been loving and Rihanna's Unapologetic is definitely one of my favourites so far. She is the definition of bad ass. This week Rihanna has been on her 777 tour promoting her new album and has been dominating online media this week.

So, my chosen celebrity/music artist for this week is Rihanna. Not only has she practically gained world domination with her music since the start of her career in 2005, but she's gained a name for herself in the fashion industry due to her FIERCE and PROVOCATIVE style. No other celeb sells Sex and Glam like she does! When I feel like entering up my inner ghetto-ness, she's the one I turn to ;)
She loves her black and leather but she's so experimental with prints, patterns and colours and is not afraid to wear whatever she wants and however she wants it! She's one of those 'style icons' that you could honestly say that she truly has her own fashion identity and is not dictated by any style icon of the past or present. But anyway, enough of that, I'm sure you know all this already!

The picture I've chosen and found an alternative outfit for is a recent snap of Rihanna in New York.
She looks so fierce I love it. She wears a burgundy shearling coat (Acne) and a camouflage jacket over a plain black tank top and skinny jeans. She tops it off with a pair of Timberlands <3 br="br">

Here are some alternatives that you may be interested in. The coat I've found is of similar style but in black. I think it's a good investment for winter... it can be dressed down as Rihanna does here or dressed up.
The coat is Warehouse from Asos and the camo jacket is from New Look, although you can find many other alternative camo jackets from River Island and Topshop.

I hope you like it!

Hey guys :)

If you remember me mentioning the fashion photoshoot I organised with two of my lovely pals a few weeks ago... well we received the photos last week and I am excited to be able to finally show you guys what we got up to!

The photoshoot surrounded a military theme however we wanted to have fun with it and add personality so a lot of the shots were quite natural and playful. We wanted to capture the models playing around and having fun! This is why we added some fun 'props' to the set ;). We also wanted to capture some of the style of famous photographer, Terry Richardson, who is known for doing crazy portrait studio shots with character.

Check out the Nerf gun and bubblegum :D The amount of shots it took to try and get those perfect bubblegum shots... but it was a laugh the whole time! The models were so amazing and excellent sports! We got them to cat fight, do push-ups, do army workouts, blow bubblegum until their jaws fell off, shoot Nerf guns at each other... no i'm only kidding about that last part, we're not that mean. Oh and there is plenty more shots including army paint and mohawk hair too! Our photographer Daniel McAvoy did a fantastic job. I'll have to edit these and produce a fashion spread for a magazine out of them so I'll be sure to keep you posted when I finish the spread.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed looking at these shots! I will have another post up in a few days about my next celebrity and where you can find her outfit for less ££ :)

Olivia Palermo

Hey all!

I love prints, patterns and anything fun and quirky when it comes to fashion but I do love a good classic look. It's always good to buy a new variation of the jean or a new crisp shirt or even a leather staple skirt to mix and match with your colourful wardrobe. For me, no one does chic classic style like socialite, actress and style icon, Olivia Palermo. She is excellent at mixing and matching different items of clothing to suit whatever occasion. A lot of people (definitely including me) all have their moments where they look at their wardrobe each morning and angrily huff and puff the words "I don't have anything to wear!!!" Well, I feel like if I had Olivia Palermo's wardrobe, I wouldn't ever have to say these words again because her clothing is simply so versatile. I will never get sick of my clothes EVER!!

She has been snapped wearing the jumper over shirt look quite a few times recently in New York which I've adopted.

She is so glamourous even when she is dressing casually. She also always brings comfort into her style as well unlike other style icons. And don't you think celebrities in New York etc. always look so fab walking their dogs. It's become sort of an A-list thing hasn't it?? Maybe I'll get a dog.

She is wearing a short sleeved tan poncho by Vince (just under £200) in both the photos with a variation of shirt underneath. I've managed to find an alternative poncho sweater in Zara... not exactly the same texture as it's a different knit but the style is the same and that works well for me :D. River Island also do a selection of shirts which are great for layering.

Here is where you can purchase:
Poncho, Zara
Silk white shirt, River Island
Denim shirt, River Island
Blue shirt, River Island

Have a good rest of the week!
