Dior Haute Couture Show 2014 | Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson

lawrence and watson

As soon as I saw this picture, I burst out laughing! It combines two of my favourite actresses with elegant Dior and classic Jennifer Lawrence awkwardness- what’s not to love? This hysterical meeting between Emma Watson and Jennifer Lawrence was captured at the Dior Haute Couture Show in Paris and saw Jennifer face-palm Emma right in the face (you know as you do).

After the two gave us this moment to have a giggle at, they headed out on the Parisian town in some killer Dior outfits (which I actually prefer to the outfits that they wore to watch the Dior fashion show)…

I really love this outfit on Emma, liking the pairing of a block colour with a vibrant, bold print. I love the over-sized cut of the blouse also, with Emma’s up-do and bright red lip completing the look perfectly!

Jennifer represented Dior well as the face of the fashion power house, looking beautiful walking the streets of Paris in head to toe Dior. Jennifer wore this striking metallic embellished gown for the after party, pairing the look with some silver pointed heels and a wavy cropped bob!

Ohhh I just love this Jennifer Lawrence + Emma Watson combo! :)

Olivia Palermo + Johannes Huebl | Wedding Chic

olivia wedding

Olivia Palermo is someone whose style I have admired ever since watching her in the MTV series The City, with the model and TV personalty having in my eyes the most flawless style. When news reports over the weekend speculated that Olivia was going to marry her longtime beau Johannes Huebl, I was beyond excited to see what Olivia would wear on her big day and trust me I wasn’t disappointed.

The socialite went for an alternative look on her wedding day, shunning the traditional wedding dress to style together three pieces from designer Carolina Herrera. Olivia looked beautiful in a cream cashmere jumper that she paired with a full tulle skirt and some crisp white shorts worn underneath. The skirt was incredibly feminine and full with floral embroidery and layers of satin and silk. A cute addition to the outfit were a pair of deep blue Manolo Blahniks, which the fashionable star wore as her ‘something blue’. Olivia’s new husband looked dapper too in a bespoke white Marc Anthony Hamburg suit.

Olivia’s take on wedding chic really incorporated her style into her big day and she pulled off her wedding look with such grace! Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Huebl! :)

Reign | Royal Hair Inspiration

reign

Although I’m a little late on this, I recently discovered the CW series Reign and have been shamelessly storming through the first season of the show ever since. Aside from the series itself which is great, a big reason why I have fallen in love with the show is the amazing hair and wardrobe featured. The show which is set in France in 1557, remains true to the time period of the drama in terms of wardrobe, hair and makeup whilst still managing to bring the looks into the 21st century. The lead character Mary played by Adelaide Kane has some beautiful hairstyles on the show, with statement headbands and beaded braids being a big part of her character’s style.

To help you bring a touch of Reign to your look, here are a few hair accessories reminiscent of the show:

Hair Inspiration | Mid-Length Hairstyles

hair inspiration

I have always been really bad at maintaining a hairstyle, largely because my hair tends to just grow out very quickly and I always forget to drag myself back to the hairdressers. But with a family party coming up this week, I have finally booked a hair appointment and taken to google to give myself some much needed hair-inspiration.

I love the whole mid-length hair trend that started bubbling earlier on this year, as for someone like me who is so attached to their hair it provides some change without having to be too drastic! Some of my favourite mid-length looks have come from Lily Collins, Emma Stone as well as Emma Watson and Ingrid Nilsen -who have all pulled off the look perfectly!

Hopefully with this as inspiration, my grown out locks will soon be transformed! :)

Find Your Inspiration | Elle Fanning

“I try to dress to convey what I feel. There used to be a lot of bar and bat mitzvahs, and now it is more dance parties and sweet sixteens, and everyone is wearing, like, a very short, tight bandage dress. With really curled hair and the black eye shadow. It might be them, but it’s just not me.” – Teen Vogue

Elle Fanning may be young but she sure has the wisdom of the ages! :P

Music Mondays | The 1975

I thought I would share with you all a live performance of one of my favourite bands The 1975, to brighten up your Monday morning. The 1975 recently performed at Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Glasgow and although I’m very jealous that I didn’t get to watch them live, thank God for YouTube!

Enjoy :)
