Even a broken arm won’t stop a fashion statement being made!

I am amazed that celebrities and famous Hollywood starlets continue to surprise me as to the lengths they will strive to make headlines and to always live us to the “celeb” hype we all know.

Let’s look at Mariah Carey first.  Mostly known for and associated with diva behaviour and demands, she is also a mother of two children and a fantastically talented singer.  So when she dislocated her shoulder recently, rather than ruin her fabulous stage costumes and disappoint her adoring fans who love her fashion, she decided to co-ordinate her shoulder sling with every outfit.  So you’ll see a bejeweled/crystal sling, then a fully feathered version and last but not least a snow white plume effect sling.  This demonstrates that Mariah is fully committed to fashion and to the look she portrays to the media as well as her fans.

I firstly thought that only someone like Mariah would go to these levels to “tart” up a medical sling but then I discovered there actually has been quite a few other celebrities who have done this in the past!  Yes I’m talking to you Anne Hathaway, Diane Von Furstenberg and even Grace Kelly!!!!

 

 

The Side-Shade is back!!

From Kristin Cavallari to Blake Lively to Amanda Seyfried, the fascination and popularity of the signature side-shade hairstyle is back with a vengeance!

This style is perfect if you want to keep your hair down whilst still looking glamorous and sexy.  What’s even better is the fact that it’s extremely easy to do!!  Just a little bit of backcombing at the roots, a pair of tongs, a static free hairbrush and some hairspray and voila!! Such an effortless yet highly sophisticated look which looks even more spectacular with a red lip.

When I look at Fergie, Amber Heard and Julianne Hough rocking this particular hairstyle I can’t help but immediately think how the best looks always come back into fashion.  Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth and Marilyn Monroe all wore this hairstyle back in the 40s and 50s. The actual style itself has not changed one bit even if the technique of how to achieve it probably has.  Let’s just take a moment to admire these stunning, iconic women!

 

 

 

 

My idol ….. Grace Kelly comes back to life ….

Nicole Kidman is to play iconic figure, Grace Kelly in the new Hollywood screening of ‘Grace of Monaco’ movie which will depict the colourful life of the wonderful Oscar winning actress and fashion icon who died tragically in 1982.

I think Grace Kelly is one of the most elegant ladies I have ever seen.  When I think of the Grace Kelly, I think of figures such as Jackie Onassis and Audrey Hepburn.  Classic beauties with timeless style and elegance who changed the face of fashion.  Always chic and sophisticated, these ladies stunned the world with their impeccable style and flawlessly cut outfits.  I think we could learn a thing or two from these ladies!  I don’t think they would ever have considered leggings with an oversized t-shirt for example.
