In the morning before I go to work, I have a strict regime; get up, get dressed, make breakfast, read the showbiz section of the daily mail…
I get a lot of gratification out of going on the Daily Mail app, not only because I like to spot the awful spelling and grammatical errors on the pieces, and also read the amusing comments that people leave, but mainly to keep up to date with what the celebrities are wearing that week! And I think a lot of you ladies have a similar view towards this website- main procrastinator at work maybe??
This week I have picked three of my favourite looks from the celeb ladies. Yes, I know it’s only Wednesday, but these celebs are on a mission! Although the celebrities wearing them are rich beyond their wildest dreams, I think the looks can easily be copied using high street buys.
Of course I couldn’t start with anybody else! Yesterday evening, the nation/world waited on tenterhooks to catch a glimpse of our new royal prince. When Kate and Will emerged with a beautiful little baby in swaddle, you could be forgiven for also equally wowing at Kate and how amazing she looked in her blue polka dot Jenny Packham dress!
Kate has worn Jenny Packham many a time- I thought she looked the definition of princess in her long teal gown which she wore to an Olympic ceremony last year. Kate’s elegant style can be very literal at times- I remember when she wore a maple leaf shaped fascinator by Sylvia Fletcher for her Canada visit and she and Will both wore soft baby blue for the presentation of their newborn.
There is absolutely no doubt that the dress she wore yesterday will have flown off the shelves within minutes. Some people are nutters! Remember though, Kate is also a fan of high street dresses, so keep your eyes peeled for future outfits.
There was a time when I was around the 17 years age mark that I had a small obsession with Rachel Bilson. Watching the OC I used to wish I could have her wardrobe and her (fictional) life. Although her real life is nothing to scoff at! She went slightly off the radar in the UK at least after OC fame, but when I saw this picture of her at the To Do list premiere this week, she skyrocketed back up into my best-dressed list!
The dress in question is a stunning Oscar De La Renta Resort 2014 number. I absolutely love the cobalt colour with the delicate flowers that trickle down the dress. And the cut and shape of the dress is what makes it so unique. The tight skirt with the garment fanning out on her hipline is very pretty. Teamed with simple hair and black accessories including Casadei shoes, I think she looks stunning. Top marks Rachel!
Olivia Palermo’s style makes me smile. She’s so versatile which is what I strive to be. One day, she will look the picture of elegance in a billowing dress. The next day it’s time to be smart in an impossibly expensive androgynous tailored jacket and sky-scraper heels. And she’s adventurous, never afraid to take a risk either by wearing bold patterns, unusual cuts or mixing and clashing things.
This is precisely what she’s done for her New York outing this week. Where some would achieve the ‘crazy bag lady’ look by mixing and matching, she achieves the ‘Vogue model during a photo shoot’ look. I can see sixties, sport luxe, animal print and graphic prints all in one look, and it looks so so fashionable! The cute sixties mini-dress which she’s teamed with a huge statement necklace, leopard print pumps, an open knitwear netted cardy and of course, a designer handbag in rich red are all key looks from this fashion season.
So I have my looks for this week, now comes the task of finding some high street buys so that I can copy them! I think it may be wishful thinking to stumble across a De La Renta dress in the clearance sale after all….
