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!!

OMG what the hell went on at this year’s VMAs????

Between One Direction getting booed when they collected the Song of the Summer Award, Lady Gaga surprisingly taking the boys side and telling them “they deserve every bit of success that they have” AND the awfully bad, terrible, cheap and tasteless fashion ensembles I have ever seen in one place …..  Honestly, what the hell were the starlets thinking at the VMAs??

I don’t even know where to start there are so many bad examples to show you!

Let’s begin with the “Teen Queens” Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus first shall we. Selena’s Atelier Versace, navy blue dress …. I’m sorry but this was just really disappointing! It’s as if she decided to vamp up her look and try something abit more risque and sexy however, this dress just looks wrong!  The folded down piece of fabric at the bust to expose a lacy bodice underneath just looks cheap to me.  Also, the way that the dress is stitched to look like pins are holding the seams together – well that’s new!  We haven’t seen that before in 1994 by Liz Hurley!!!  Come on Selena!!!  At least Liz had the boobs and sex appeal to pull this look off almost 20 years ago!!!And then we have Miley Cyrus in a yellow, rubber two piece …..

 Now I know it was a costume for on stage .. but talk about about tasteless!  I’ve been digging her punk look recently alot and I really loved the Dolce and Gabbana outfit which she arrived in at the VMAs and so wish she’d kept it on.  The cute, cropped top with cut off trousers and coloured embellishments is really fresh and young and PERFECT for the VMAs.  It just suits the occasion and her beautifully as this is not the type of event for a full length, formal gown.  Which brings me nicely onto my next victim, Rita Ora.

A 20ft train, seriously?  An assistant to carry the train, are you kidding me?  This choice of dress was completely wrong  for the VMAs.  She simply looked ridiculous.  Rita didn’t look chic, she didn’t look elegant, nor fashion forward or stylish.  Literally, she didn’t tick any boxes for me in this Alexandre Vauthier gown which had it been worn to the correct event with properly groomed hair and accessories would have looked fab on the red carpet.   Epic Fail I’m afraid.

I’m sure you’re wondering if there was anything that I liked at the VMAs this year after all this ranting!

 

Let’s turn our attention to potty mouthed Taylor Swift, who was brilliantly captured on camera dropping the F bomb as clear as day when Harry Styles was on stage, priceless!  She may have a dirty mouth, but when it comes to fashion, she got it right in a gorgeous Herve Leger, midnight blue dress.  Even though, this was full length to the floor, the fact that it was skin tight and so eye-wateringly low at the bust, made the style more current and added a fabulous sexiness to the look.  I loved her hair and her make up as well.  Just a word to the wise Taylor …. you should know better than anyone that the camera never lies so try being more discrete next time you want to slag off an ex!!!
