I absolutely love flicking through past issues of fashion magazines, I find them a great source of inspiration. I remember seeing Selena Gomez’s cover in Teen Vogue last summer in the June/July edition of the magazine and fell in love instantly with the styling of the shoot!
The styling in this first image is amazing, I remember feeling so inspired the first time I saw it! I just love the combination of colour and texture used in this outfit, it creates a really fun look!
The youthfulness and fun portrayed in this photoshoot is what really captivated me about these images! They make me want to experiment with colour and just have fun with fashion!
I love individuals that go against the grain in terms of their look and image, I really admire their strive for individuality. When first seeing Lily Collins, I was intrigued by her striking look, a major part of this intrigue was her eyebrows! Lily has long, thick statement eyebrows that really give her a strong, retro look and feel! It’s nice to see an actress that isn’t afraid to be themselves and not conform to the ‘now’ beauty or fashion trends! I believe everyone should take a leaf out of Lily’s book and embrace their unique qualities and features!
“It used to bother me – having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in, but I hated them and couldn’t wait for them to grow back. Now I embrace them. I’ve realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”
Selena Gomez, Victoria Justice, Candice Accola and Nina Dobrev are my top fashion picks from the Teen Choice Awards 2012 . The Teen Choice Awards is an outlet for celebrities to embrace summer fashion and these four outfits completely embody great summer styles! The bright colours, the flowy and cropped cut dresses paired with both wedges and strappy sandals, collectively make these outfits great!
My best fashion double act has to go to Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Kendall’s dress is very fun and flirty and the lace matched with the dark blue really completes this summer look! I really love the print on Kylie’s dress also, the colour and animal print is a great combo and the waist cut-outs give this dress an added edge!
No Doubt reunited last night and reminded us all how stylish they really can be! Gwen looks as phenomenal as ever, I really love her fitted all black outfit which has become somewhat of a uniform for her! What I think is really great about this band, is that they have dressed collectively, not just individually!
Lauren Conrad has always had great style and what I love most about her is that with every outfit she wears she always remains delicate and feminine! She experiments with different looks and styles and yet always manages to stay true to her style roots. The styles shown in the bottom photos above truly show this, they all as individual outfits are extremely different to one another and yet when looking at them in unison, all stick to the same style outline. What I think is great about Lauren is that her style does not seem as unattainable as other celebrities, she has a very girl next door kind of feel to her and I think her style is to be celebrated!
Animal prints are everywhere at the moment and bird prints especially are a prominent feature in many summer collections. This particular print is being used predominantly alongside monochrome colouring creating a very classic, chic look! Alternatively, bird print is being used alongside colour, an example of this can be seen in the Oasis dress above. The print in this dress is being used to contrast the purple base with brighter, more vibrant colours like the pink and blue used. Overall I am loving this trend and hope that it will transition well into winter fashion!
Whilst flicking through the music channels I stumbled across Nicole Scherzinger’s music video Right There and was instantly reminded of how much I loved the styling of this video …
What I love the most about this video is the amazing hairstyles used throughout. My favourite hairstyle can be see in the last look, I really love the texture created through the braided faux dreadlocks Nicole wears. I also really like how they paired this structured hairstyle with such a free flowing outfit!
