Sizzling in Sheer …

… I know I have posted about this trend already but when you see Victoria Beckham donning sheer fabric, it’s something everyone needs to know!!

Ok, you may not personally like her sophisticated style but you can’t deny that she always looks “polished” and her dress at the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund dinner is no exception.

I am loving the slicked back hair with this look and it just goes to show you can wear black from top to toe and look amazing!!  Black is NOT boring!!!

I’m not 100% sure I like the peekaboo bra, in fact no I really don’t like it at all, but love the combination of this tight fitting dress coupled with the softness of the sheer fabric paneling.

Posh looks sexy, sophisticated, elegant, fashionable and edgy.

Get a similar look with this stunning all black, full length evening gown with sheer mesh paneling at Belle Dress Hire in Lisburn which is available to hire in a size 8 ….

Great Fashion Choices!!

I feel bad that I was so negative in my blog earlier today on the bad fashion choices at the 2013 VMAs, so thought I’d write something upbeat to counter balance the negativity!!

Just loving the relaxed look on Victoria Beckham who was snapped at Heathrow Airport in a cute little number.  All too often we see stars boarding flights in ridiculously uncomfortable outfits not fit for travel so it’s refreshing to see Posh in this flirty outfit.

What I love even more about it is the fact that you can so easily replicate this look from bargain buys on the High Street!!  Just snap yourself up a tartan, short kilt skirt, simple black round neck jumper and a pair of suede shoes and Voila!!  Of course the designer, oversized sunglasses and handbag make VB’s kilt look that little bit more “posh” but the rest of this look can be copied from items at Primark, TopShop, New Look and H&M stores.

From one great fashion choice to another …. Georgia May JaggerI do love trouser suits especially when they are tailored and fit the body perfectly.  I think there’s nothing more elegant and chic on a woman.  Normally, I think classic black is the best way to go, but I just adore the gold, shorts version that Georgia wore at a Fashion Show in Sydney, Australia.  The fact that she has legs that go on forever probably makes this outfit look even more amazing but I just love her hair which is so simple and glossy and her minimal make up as well.  This is a fantastic example of a modern, fresh take on a classic trouser suit.  Love Love Love this!!

Beyonce’s new blonde bob …

I posted just last week about how disappointed I was in Beyonce’s “new do”.  First of all, she cropped her hair into a pixie cut which I loved and thought was very cutting edge and dramatic.  Then to my dismay, she added extensions to the either side of her head at the front, giving the world famous diva a very dishevelled, “boho” look which to be honest just doesn’t suit her or her fashion style.  Maybe Beyonce was trying to prove that she can be a chameleon with her look and we shouldn’t just always expect her with long flowing hair and short hot pants.  Regardless of this, Beyonce has now gone on to change her hair once again, this time sporting a very sleek, platinum blonde bob.

Now, you would think I’d be delighted with the fact that she had very quickly ditched the “short at the back/long at the front” look that I despised BUT you’d be wrong!  COME ON Beyonce, if you’re trying to start trends, this isn’t the way to go!!!  My God,we have seen this look SO many times and even as far back as when Victoria Beckham was referred to as Posh!

Jenny McCarthy, NeNe Leakes, Jenni Garth, Nicki Minaj, even Paris Hilton have ALREADY rocked before!

I’m glad Beyonce has tidied up her look but why she just didn’t stick with the initial pixie cut which unbelievably made her face and skin look even more beautiful than they already are I will never know.  I continue to be disappointed with Beyonce’s hair at the moment and it’s really frustrating!!

 

The Oscars

The Golden Man Awards are over for yet another year and weren’t they simply fabulous!!  I loved the variety of looks this year with some of the younger actresses such as Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams rocking some unusual and contemporary shapes and fabrics.  However, I was disappointed to see that it wasn’t Angelina Jolie’s thigh high split in her black velvet Versace dress or Posh’s rather sour face whilst wearing the most beautifully tailored dress from her latest collection that made the headlines. Instead, it was Sacha Baron Cohen that grabbed the front pages with his ridiculous ash tossing stunt and antics on the red carpet for which he was removed by security. I used to think high profile events such as the Oscars were untouchable and such blatant behaviour to grab the spotlight to promote a film in advance of its release would simply be ignored or not tolerated. However, Sacha’s stunt proved even the most prestigious red carpet, Hollywood bash is suspectible. Sad to say that this year’s Oscars and the main reason why people watch this event … for the glamour and fashion …. was overshadowed.
