The Emmys.

I try to stray away from writing about award shows, the same generic dresses and styles all revolving from each star/starlet, but this years Emmys were different.
Now, there were some catastrophically ghastly dresses that 'graced' that red carpet that literally made my skin crawl for example, the ever so beautiful Sofia Vergara;
While her casual attire is so effortless and on-trend this dress is reminiscent of that infamous J-Lo dress circa 2000. The cuts are spontaneous and she is clearly oblivious to the first rule of evening dresses: only have one asset on show! This dress doesn't compliment her amazing figure and makes her look much older than she is. The sequined design may have looked pleasant in moderation but as its all over the dress, its gives it a very cheap feel, if i was her stylist i would have dressed her in a mid length body con dress, with a closed neck in a nice jade green with minimal gold accessories and nude or black shoes. Or i would have put in a backless dress in a deep shade of red.

On a happier note there was dress that for me stood out of the crowd and i can happily say she was the best dressed actress there.

As a girl with a volumptuous shape Kat Dennings knows how to style her self accordingly, this dress emphasizes her chest without making her look trashy, the dark red is perfect against her fair skin tone and the minimal accessories don't steal the attention away from the ruched detailing on the dress. I think Sofia could learn a lesson or two from her.

A runner up for the best dressed title is the girl after revenge also known as Emily vanCamp:

Her beautiful stone grey coloured dress looks effortless on her and the detailing is absolutely gorgeous, the ruffling of the skirt gives the dress a fairytale feel while the sheer top makes the dress more mature and sexy.

Lana Del Rey.

So, for those of you who dont know her (seriously?) Lana, Lizzy or Queen Lana as i call her is fast become a music legend. Her sombre and emotional songs are a musical dream and her style is even better.
Recently, Lana has performed at hackney weekend, the itunes festival and has become the face of H&M. I know right?

Since mulberry named a bag after her, Lana Del Rey has become one to watch, from her artistic and grainy videos which i adore to the nostalgic touch in her wardrobe. Her style is classic from floor-length lace dresses to a dressed down look of a skater skirt, knitted jumper and ballet shoes lana know how to dress and it must be easier when you have your own bag that available in 3 different colors, textures e.g.snake print and an oversize version.
Del Rey Bag.
The new line is great, featuring sensational tones of pinks and red i guess one word to some this line up is romantic, the type of clothing you would wear on a first date in winter or to snuggle up and have a hot chocolate with a significant other, suede heels, baggy  knitted jumpers and peplum tops. The soft colors are perfect for winter if you want to 'jazz' up your old winter wardrobe filled with colors such as navy and dark blue. And for all you vintage lovers this range will be perfect for you,the reminisce of the 60's in the clothes make the line more perfect.

From these photographs i can only assume you have your credit cards out ready to purchase some of these brilliant pieces so i've made it easier for you, just click here.

-Happy Shopping!

Fashion Week.

Well London Fashion week has come and gone, but has left a big footprint on the fashion industry so lets discuss. Two words. Phillip. Treacy.

The always wonderful designer used all black models to showcase his mad hatter designs (mind the pun). We all know when it comes to hats Treacy is amazing, from Sarah Jessica Parker and that infamous hat he designed for Princess Beatrice last summer. Treacy knows how to push open the envelope and surprise, although his designs were spectacular cough (cough smiley face head piece) he raised a question that has been buried underneath the rug for years.
Why isn't there more minorities in fashion?
Okay so we all know that Black and Asian models arent featured enough in magazines and editorials but will this show impact the fashion industry or bubble over and fade like most trends in the fashion industry. Futhermore i thought this was a courageous step that has opened the eyes of some designers to add more minorities to there show. I personally cant wait to see how the fashion world will change. Watch this step.
Overall the fashion show was a feast of imaginative and bold designs which were excessive and very MJ.

And finally Mulberry its like they displayed images that have been in my mind for ages: autumn/winter colors for spring and summer. So you can only guess that i was ecstatic when i saw dark blue and black pieces in the show, i think they added edginess because i feel as though s/s has been taken over by neon and neutral tones. Although Mulberry has changed my view on pastels the light tones of green, pink and brown added a nice femine touch on the designs. The vibrant oranges and gold brang the collection togther, reminiscent of an indian summer.
Oh and the bags were a delight, from white to black, printed to cut out the bags were fabulous and my new crush is the mulberry willow tote which i will covert and desire till death (or till the next fashion week.)

Topshop Unique left me feeling two things:
1. Jealousy because i will not be able to purchase this collection as i am broke.
2. Admiration because it lived up to the label name.
The lack of color and simplicity of the pieces were very ingenious. The sudden appearance of yellow and prints made the pieices more playful and young which is perfect for summer.

To finish off this post i am going to pretend im a pyschic and predict the 5 next big trends for next year:
- White, grey and black. I know you might be reading this and saying seriously? but just think of it this way these are 3 classic colours that will NEVER go out of fashion or make you look bad.
- Oversized Blazers or The Boyfriend Blazer
- Pencil dresses.
-Structured Jackets
-OTT hats.

Thank you for reading.
