Similar style to Cheryl Fernandez-Versini at Belle Dress Hire.

Ok, it’s not EXACTLY the same dress as Cheryl wore on the X Factor stage at the weekend BUT it’s a similar idea in terms of the style:-

This dress divides opinion with those who have tried it on … some love the fact that the dress is different at the bottom and some say “I wish the dress was the same the whole way down!”.  My response to the latter is, “The dress just wouldn’t have the same impact without the sheer bottom and the wow factor would be gone.”

The whole point of a different “skirt” in an evening gown is to turn heads, to draw attention and it’s a great way of standing out in the crowd without jeopardising your modesty.

You should check out a raft of starlets who have worn these “two-piece but one dress” evening styles perfectly …. Vanessa Hudgens, Sienna Miller, Lea Michele, Ciara, Taylor Swift ……The beauty of wearing a dress that has a different fabric on the bottom than on the top is that it adds drama, texture and shape to the dress.  Dare to be different at your next event!

 

Coachella Craziness!!

After attending a few Festivals myself such as Electric Picnic and EDC Las Vegas, I know the value of proper attire and footwear at these events.  I understand that celebrities do not often live on the same planet as ourselves when fashion comes into play but I have to say I was disturbed when I saw the latest pics from Coachella 2014!

Kylie and Kendall Jenner.  Where to start.  They looked ridiculous.  Completely over accessorised and WAY TOO MUCH MAKE UP KYLIE!  This girl is just 16 years old.  She does not need to wear this amount of make up on an ordinary day let alone a 3 day music festival!

Vanessa Hudgens who is normally the QUEEN of boho chic was I’m afraid to say, somewhat on and off at this year’s event ..Festival attire is supposed to look effortless, free, comfortable … Vanessa doesn’t look any of the things in any of her outfits.

Step forward, Victoria Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio.  She was looking mighty fine as always!  Shorty shorts to show off the tanned pins …. check ….. trendy hat to cover slightly greasy hair …. check … minimal to no make up with a rosy flush from dancing …. check … totally practical yet stylish high tops … check!  Love her.

And doing it for the men, I give you …. Jared Leto.  Rocking a totally, fantastic Festival/Rocker look.  I know this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but you gotta say he does look cool!  He doesn’t seem to be posing for the camera’s, but actually appears to be having a great time and so he should in that outfit.  Good for you Jared!
