And I quote Coco Chanel

Here are just a few amazing quotes from the lips of the infamous Coco Chanel, a fashion icon and legend.  Her thoughts and ideas can still inspire us today ..

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

“I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all.”

“Fashion changes, but style endures.”

“The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.”

“Adornment, what a science! Beauty, what a weapon! Modesty, what elegance!”

 

Take heed of these words …. and yes Keisha, I’m talking to you!!!

 

MTV Movie Awards 2013 … The good, the bad and the downright ugly!

This year’s MTV Movie Awards had a mixed bag of fashion styles on the red carpet.  Some celebrities got it bang on but some unfortunately missed by a long mile!!

For the first time in a few months, I’m delighted to say that Kim Kardashian finally got it right in a black ensemble which fitted her pregnancy curves perfectly.  She looks back to her good old self in this outfit!  Selena Gomez also shone in a short, gold beaded dress which harps back to the Charleston era but I have to say I really don’t like her hairstyle .

Hitting a BUM note completely is Keisha.  It looks like she got dressed in the dark!! On what planet would this actually look good?  The answer is none.  Completely unflattering and trashy.  I can’t believe this but I’m also going to pan Kelly Washington’s outfit and I’ve had nothing but glowing reports of her fashion style recently but this unfortunately was a miss.  The main problem for me is the back of the dress.  It looks very homemade in that the yellow part of the skirt looks like it was stitched on as an after thought.  It also adds bulk to her bottom which no woman wants!!  Such a shame as I think this had the potential to be brilliant but the application and execution just wasn’t up to scratch.
