Dr Strange Film Premiere Fashion

Dr Strange is comic book escapism at it’s finest with Benedict Cumberbatch playing a surgeon who battles evil with martial arts, knuckle dusters and a mysterious ancient guru. Several reviewers have given it four out of five stars and some have scored it full marks, calling it a ‘tremendously likeable superhero ride’.

What’s charming about the films is that there are strong, inspiring and powerful women in it. The ancient guru, who has more powers than Dr Strange is female (played by Tilda Swinton) and Dr Strange is mesmerised by his ex-girlfriend (played by Rachel McAdams), It’s refreshing to watch a film where women are in control! At the premiere, the same was true with power-dressing at it’s finest.

If you want to show everyone who’s boss at the Christmas party, take a look at:

Rachel McAdams

Rachel’s taking risks by wearing a one-shoulder maxi dress with a see-through effect and a bold print. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and that’s the point – if you want to look powerful and confident you need to take risks. Look for something with a playful print and flash a bit of flesh but not too much, just like Rachel.

Tilda Swinton

A trouser suit always looks fierce and Tilda Swinton rocked hers! Notice that she isn’t wearing any accessories. She doesn’t need to because she doesn’t want anything to detract from the suit. A simple pair of black heels is all she needs to look chic and fabulous.

Sophie Cumberbatch

When your husband is the star of the film, you need to dress up as the spotlight will be on you and Sophie embraces it in a pink maxi dress. The colour is just fabulous as it stands out from the crowd. I love how it clashes slightly with her red lip and red shoes. What do you think?

Claudia Fragapane and AJ Pritchard

The gymnast turned star of Strictly Come Dancing showed off the fact that dancing has toned her leg muscles in a white mini dress. Dressing powerfully is working out what body parts you’re proud of and dressing to show that off. The gold heels further lengthen her legs and sculpt her physique – gold sandals are ideal for the party season. They’re made for the dancefloor!

Does this make you want to look a bit more powerful this party season? Whose outfit did you like most?

Red Magazine’s Women Of The Year Awards: Party Outfits

There are a lot of award ceremonies in the showbiz calendar but there aren’t that many supporting women. For that reason, Red Magazine’s Women Of The Year Awards attracted a lot of strong, powerful female celebrities who wanted to celebrate their colleagues. All too often, there are rumours about rivalry and bitchiness among women at the top and the celebs gathered together at the Skylon restaurant in London to show that wasn’t the case.

The awards had a real party atmosphere with each award going to an inspiring real person or a celebrity that had achieved something outside of their work. It left the audience empowered and hopeful that they could make a difference. And everyone was also looking at each other’s outfits. When girls get together, we’re always looking at what everyone else is wearing, aren’t we? The celebs are no exception!

With the party season coming up, it’s useful to have a look at what everyone’s wearing. At this event, the stars seemed to wear striking blacks and whites. Let’s have a closer look:

Fearne Cotton

Fearne wore one of the new season’s popular bardot dresses, which gave it an almost vintage effect. Fearne’s always had her own sense of style, which is quirky but pretty and this dress is no exception. Monochrome prints are great for getting noticed too!

Izzy Bizu

Izzy performed a couple of songs before the awards started and while she’s up and coming and not many guests had heard of her when she started, they certainly had by the time she’d finished. Her outfit gave her stage presence as people couldn’t stop looking at the black PU trousers. They looked gorgeous with a cute black bomber jacket.

Millie Mackintosh

Millie wore a chic black jumpsuit in a sumptuous velvet material, showing that a jumpsuit can be just as gorgeous as a dress. It’s a simple look but the fabric of the jumpsuit does all the work so all you need are some black shoes and a red lip and you’re ready to go.

Melanie C

Like Millie, Mel C also wore velvet but hers was in the form of a black maxi dress. It really suited her as the bodycon dress highlighted her slender physique. Her solo album;s out this Friday and then she’s got a tour so she’s clearly been in the gym in preparation. Sporty Spice looked stunning!

Joanne Froggatt

The former Downton Abbey actress looks a world apart from her dowdy maid character in a pretty white midi dress. This dress, which is full of embellishment, celebrates all things girly and Joanne wears it well, It must be a nice change for her to wear white after having to wear a black maid outfit in Downton.

Helen George

Helen rose to fame in Call The Midwife, but she’s left all trace of the dowdy nun’s outfit on set and looks so different. Her light pink hair looks very cool, doesn’t it? It works perfectly with her white maxi dress as she looks so fresh and fashionable. She’s wearing this dress, rather than it wearing her as she stands with poise and attitude.

Lisa Snowden

The mdoel turned Radio DJ kept it classic in a black bodycon dress that highlighted her toned physique. Sometimes, wearing something simple but fabulously fitted helps you stand out more as you look amazing but it doesn’t look like you’ve tried too hard so you look super cool. It’s the fashion equivalent of ‘no make-up’ make-up.

After the awards were presented, the ladies hit the dancefloor.  It was a true girls night out! Now the question is whose award ceremony look did you like the most?

Tidal Charity Concert: Beyonce And Friends Put On A Show

When it comes to dressing up, you can count on Beyonce to bring it whenever she’s performing on stage. At the Tidal charity concert that she organised with Jay-Z to benefit New York anti-poverty charity The Robin Hood foundation, she had to be on top of her game as she was being followed on stage by flamboyant and fabulous artists like Nicki Minaj and Alicia Keys.

In the end, Beyonce did get talked about the most as her long braid ripped out one of her earrings making her bleed onstage…but she still carried on! She also had enough times between songs for an outfit change and each was incredible. It’s great inspiration if you want to make an impact everywhere you go this Christmas party season, Although Nicki Minaj and Alicia Keys didn’t get talked about as much, they looked stunning too.

Let’s have a closer look at the stunning stage outfits:

Beyonce’s first outfit

Beyonce looked like a tribal Queen with a long black maxi dress, her hair in a long braid and some cool bracelets and ear-rings. It was the accessories that made this outfit – the right jewellery can really transform a  look and be a way to get noticed. Also, it enables you to make the same dress last longer because changing the accessories, changes the way the dress looks and you can wear it to more occasions.

Beyonce’s second outfit

On stage, Beyonce made sure that all eyes were on her in a metallic dress with captivating shoulder-pad detail. It’s a bodycon dress which shows off all Beyonce’s bootylicious curves, so you can see her impressive hourglass shape. Bodycon dresses are a classic during the party season.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki was a vision in white, which is always dazzling on a dark night. The white jacket looks super luxurious and the white sandals are fierce. If you want to look like you mean business, wear an outfit like Nicki’s.

Emeli Sande

We haven’t seen much of Emeli for a while, but she’s back and showing that by looking gorgeous in a black maxi dress. It’s an easy dress to wear and super comfortable but it’s not a traditional shape and that makes it look special. Because she feels confident in it, she’s holding her head up high. Sometimes, you just can’t beat a black dress.

Bebe Rexha

The American singer and rapper walked out tall in black over the knee boots that gave everyone footwear envy – they’re stunning. Emerald green is a popular colour this season and Bebe showed green goes well with black boots. Also, not many people have the guts to go green, so wearing a green outfit will get you noticed in a crowd.

Alicia Keys

You can count on Alicia to stick to her own sense of style without needing to conform. Most of the other female stars may have worn a dress but Alicia felt comfortable in black trousers so that’s what she wore. This clearly gave her more confidence as she moved about the stage like she owned it and wowed everyone with her presence. Trousers can make just as much impact as a dress if you wear them with attitude!

Are you getting in the mood for Christmas party season now?

Celebrity Style Steal: Copy Taylor Swift’s Squad

Taylor Swift seems to have the most glam girl squad ever. She doesn’t need a man because she has such a close relationship with a number of fabulous and  inspiring women. In her gang, there are actresses, models and singers and everyone is just as successful as she is. She’s proof that surrounding yourself with great people makes you improve your own game.

The same is true when it comes to fashion because if your friends dress well then you don’t want to let the side down. Also, you can take ideas from them and if something looks good  then you can wear a modified version.

While we may not be in Taylor’s squad ourselves (yet), we can still be inspired by what they’re wearing. And when they had a night out in New York, they all looked gorgeous in different kinds of black outfits.


Let’s have a closer look at how we can copy:



Taylor looked stunning in a cold shoulder mini dress that showed off her lovely long legs. The cold shoulder style is very popular this season as flashing a hint of flesh in a subtle, flirty way gets you in the mood for a night out. Then you need to wear high boots to lengthen your legs even more and improve your posture for dancing. To get this look, try the V by Very cold shoulder mini pencil dress with the V by Very military lace up front gold zip high leg ankle boots.

Suki Waterhouse


Suki looked stunning in a pair of mock-leather trousers. If you’re feeling fierce and full of attitude then why not make a statement with your trousers. Suki’s remind me of the V by Very PU zip trousers. She wore it with an oversized black jumper like the V by Very rib detail long sleeve boxy jumper. 



The singer showed off her edgy side with a statement sequin mini skirt. It definitely turned heads and she loved the attention! If you’re a sequin fan, you’ll be pleased to know there’s a really similar skirt at Very in the V by Very sequin mini skirt. It looks so cool with a black roll neck like the V by Very rollneck jumper.

London Film Festival: The Best Red Carpet Looks

The London Film Festival is the UK’s equivalent of Cannes except in slightly colder circumstances. There’s just as much talent but the stars all have to wear warmer outfits on the red carpet.

It’s a great indication of what films are coming up in coming months as these movies have been through a strict selection process to enter the competition. The appearance of the celebs at the premieres takes the publicity for the film to another level as the right outfit will lead to coverage in magazines and newspapers that mention the film. For this reason, the stars go all out to impress in beautiful dresses in stunning colours with gorgeous fabrics.

Let’s have a closer look at the stars’ premiere outfits for some party inspiration:

Nicole Kidman

Nicole is in a new film called Lion with Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel, which is all about Dev’s journey as he gets lost in India. Nicole plays more of a minor role but all eyes were on her at the premiere in the long sleeve black velvet maxi dress. She looked almost gothic, but the red lipstick lifted it up and made her appear dramatic rather than dark. This look will make heads turn.

Alice Eve

The British actress also went for a velvet dress but hers was a red maxi dress and it looked lovely against her golden skin. Black Mirror is a Netflix series that Alice stars in and it’s a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. Therefore it’s nice that she indulges her feminine side in this dress as she doesn’t get much opportunity to in Black Mirror.

Amy Adams

Amy made sure all eyes were on her as she dazzled in a white maxi dress at the premiere of Arrival. The film’s quite geeky about science fiction and aliens but Amy shows that it is possible to be smart without looking too preppy. She’s following the golden rule of keeping the legs covered if she’s showing the cleavage.

Michelle Williams

Michelle puts on an emotional performance in the angst drama Manchester By The Sea, in which her ex-husband returns to the town in which they got married and he is forced to look after his nephew after the brother died in a car crash. It’s all about new starts and families and a bit of a tear-jerker. Perhaps that’s why Michelle went for a multi-coloured midi dress for the premiere, that also looks a bit velvety.

The actress looksed really pretty in her dress and the strapless detail enhanced her slim upper half and showed her feminine shape. Strapless dresses can be more flattering than you think!

Laura Carmichael

The Downton Abbey actress has moved on from TV and has no problem getting big screen roles. At the gala premiere of A United Kingdom, she turned heads in a gorgeous green maxi dress. When others stick to classic colours like black, white and red then a green dress can really get you noticed. The pleat detail is an interesting touch, which is very fashionable this season and floats around her legs as she walks, mermaid style.

Whose red carpet look most inspires you?Also, it looks like there will be some fascinating new films in the cinema soon for when you need a quieter night out!

Celebrity Style Steal: Olivia Palermo’s Front Row Cool

Did you notice that Olivia Palermo was on the Front Row of shows in New York, Milan, London and Paris this season? It’s hard to miss her as she always nails smart casual wear. She looks dressed up enough to fit into the glamour and extravagance of the show but she’s always comfortable and able to hold her head up high because she feels and looks good. That’s definitely something to aim for!

If you look closely, you can see that her secret is to do the basics well. She doesn’t go over the top when it comes to risking new shapes or prints. Instead, she goes for classic tailoring and well-fitted clothing like skinny jeans and sticks to block colours or stripes.


This year, her London and Paris looks were particular chic and surprisingly easy to copy. Let’s examine them properly:



It wasn’t warm in London this year so Olivia showed off some gorgeous new knitwear. Look at the skirt and you can see its made from some lovely thick material. The way it’s loose around her knees is like the V by Very fit and flare skirt. On her top half, she’s wearing a classic autumnal brown jumper. The V by Very cowl neck button side tunic would also look great with a skirt as its well fitted, which means it will flatter your shape and make you look slimmer. Feeling warm and looking slim? How good is that?



Olivia worked the nautical trend in a striped jacket, which looked quintessentially French. However, you don’t have to go all the way to Paris to look chic as there’s a lovely striped jacket at Very in the form of the V by Very striped trophy jacket. It looks amazing with skinny jeans as it stops at the waist so your legs look a little bit longer. The new V by Very mid rise Ella unpicked hem skinny jeans are lovely for Autumn as the slightly higher waist means you’ll never show any more skin than you want to and they look lovely with both sandals and boots for a day to night vibe. Also keeping in with the day to night style is knitwear that you can also wear as a party top. It will keep you warm when worn with a jacket for day but it’s light enough to wear on a night out. Try the V by Very open stitch detail peplum top.

Which look did you like best – Paris or London? Remember, the key is to do the basics well!

Inside Soap Awards 2016: Best Dressed

The Inside Soap Awards are always a glamorous affair as the stars gather together to find out who the magazine’s readers have voted Best Soap, Best Storyline and Best Actor and Actress. This year did not disappoint as the actors and actresses put on some stunning outfits to attend the awards and pose for photographers on the red carpet.

One thing that was interesting was that there were almost as many stars wearing jumpsuits as there were wearing dresses. For parties this Christmas party season, you can look equally sensational in a jumpsuit as you can in a dress. Also, you don’t have to go for a bold colour to make an impact as there are some lovely new styles of black dresses which are guaranteed to make people look twice at the shape.

Here are some ways to feel fabulous in party wear, inspired by the soap actresses who looked gorgeous at the Inside Soap Awards:

Faye Brooks


The new Coronation Street actress turned heads at her first ever Inside Soap Awards in a vibrant red midi dress. The plunging v-neck detail and side split added extra drama and shows you’re in the mood to party. Wear with high sandals to lengthen the legs and help you walk taller and with more attitude. The V By Very cut out midi pencil dress is a great match!

Kym Marsh


Kym is a perfect example of how wearing a black jumpsuit can make you look cool, calm and in control. A v-neck shows just the right amount of skin to give off a playful edge but you won’t feel worried about any wardrobe malfunctions. The v-neck detail of Kym’s jumpsuit reminds me of the Vera Moda soft tailor jumpsuit.

Jacqueline Jossa


If you feel comfortable in black because black fits in anywhere, then you should look for something that has an interesting fit. A prom dress is ideal because it’s really flattering thanks to the full skirt, which will make your waist look slimmer. It’s also great for twirling around the dancefloor. You can get the same effect in the Ted Baker fit and flare prom dress.

Amanda Clapham


The Hollyoaks actress showed that jumpsuits come in colours other than black. Indeed, there are some lovely cream jumpsuits at Very. They stand out when everyone else is wearing dark colours and they look beautiful with gold sandals. If you want to shine, experiment with jumpsuits!

Who do you think looked the best? It just goes to show there are many ways to make an impact at a party and you don’t have to wear a dress to look fabulous.

Paris Fashion Week: Celebs on The FROW

All the big designers choose Paris Fashion Week as the one in which to reveal their next collections. Dior, Balmain, Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, to name but a few, take over the French capital for shows of flamboyance, decadence and outrageous style.

As all of these high-profile designers dress celebrities for red carpet events and so the celebs returned the favour by attending their catwalk shows. The designers have so much influence that many stars flew over from LA including Grammy award winning singer Rihanna and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. The A’listers love Paris!

And we love seeing what the A’listers wore as it’s fantastic inspiration for autumn smart casual wear. It’s a bit chilly in Paris but the celebs still had to keep up appearances. These stars did a great job of that:

Jessica Alba

Jessica showed that you can never look too dressed up. She’s wearing a black maxi dress but she styles it down with a black biker jacket and what appears to be black boots. It’s perfect for the autumn chill but it’s also very chic.

Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law attended the Dior show in a laid-back look that she rocked because she appeared comfortable and super confident. Boyfriend jeans are on trend this season and Jennifer dressed hers up with a pair of black heels and a sheer black top. This is sports luxe meets weekend casual wear and Jen gets away with it as her natural style is relaxed off-duty wear. Once you have found your style, stick to it!


Ri-Ri takes risks when it comes to fashion and her goal is to always make people look twice. I love her cold-shoulder dress and it looks fierce with lace up sandals. All of the other guests at the Dior show must have been envious!

Kim Kardashian

When Kim gets it right, she looks divine. I loved the faux-fur coat that she wore to a reception for Americans in Paris. It looks especially good with her super sleek hair and minimal make-up as a coat like this deserves all the attention.

Alessandra Ambrosio

When model Alessandra Ambrosio isn’t sashaying down the catwalk, she’s using the streets of Paris as her runway. She looks just as good – if not better – when she’s off-duty. Slim leg jeans and heeled ankle boots are the perfect smart causal combo and the red coat gives an extra wow factor.

Gigi Hadid

When Gigi isn’t working, she likes to dress down. She does look good in a tracksuit though! There are some lovely new-in tracksuits this season, that will make us look stylish but super cosy and comfortable. It’s now become acceptable to wear tracksuits outside the house. After all, if it’s good enough for Gigi…

Karlie Kloss

Karlie was an example of old-fashioned elegance at the Dior show. Her pencil skirt is the stand-out piece bit look closer and you notice the pretty lace top. She tops it all off with a simple black jacket. Pure class.

Style Steal: Victoria’s Secret Models’ Paris Fashion Week Looks

Paris Fashion Week is the most flamboyant of them all with dreamy, floaty maxi dresses offsetting edgy mesh fabric bodysuits. It’s all about the drama! And the look is kept up 24/ 7 – even when the models aren’t on the catwalks. They can’t afford to spoil the illusion!

Victoria’s Secret Models Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio are perfect examples of this. They turned heads as they arrived to get ready for the Balmain show. This is how models do casual wear:


Doutzen’s look (below) makes use of one of the key pieces for Autumn – the military jacket. There’s a couple at Very but the most popular and most eye catching is the V by by Very military jacket. It’s the ideal length to wear with a pair of super skinny jeans as it falls to just above the waist to make your legs look longer. The V by Very Addison super skinny jeans would work well for this look. But no supermodel could be seen without accessories. It’s the caged sandals that make this outfit super glamorous and Doutzen’s shoes are very similar to the Carvela metal trim gold caged sandals. Top with the Michael Kors oversized sunglasses for the ultimate in off duty cool.


Now let’s have a closer look at Alessandra. Her outfit is lighter to make the most of her sunkissed summer skin but it’s appropriate for Autumn as the jacket protests against the chill.


To follow in her stylish footsteps, start with a great pair of skinny jeans. The V by Very bodyshaping skinny jeans help you to get that supermodel shape without even trying making legs look slimmer and leaner. They’re also a good colour match to Alessandra’s pair. Talking of colour, notice that she’s matched  her shoes to her jacket and you can do the same with the Carvela kestral point toe high heels and the V by Very lace bomber jacket which has a fabulous texture. It’s the texture that makes Alessandra’s jacket stand out – Autumn is a time to indulge in fabrics.

Milan Fashion Week: Celeb FROW Style

Milan Fashion Week follows London Fashion Week so it has a lot to live up to! Its appeal is that the shows feature beautiful tailoring with luxurious fabrics with Italian designers experimenting with new prints and new cottons and silks.

Celebrities love looking at ways they can stand out from the crowd and so the fashion shows have attracted a number of well-known famous faces. The FROW is almost as well-dressed as the models on the catwalk sas not only have the celebs made the effort to get on a plane to attend the shows, they’ve clearly spent ages thinking about what they’d wear knowing that the cameras are always on the FROW.

Want an outfit that gets you noticed for the right reasons? Let’s have a look at what some of the celebs wore on the FROW:

Ellie Goulding

Ellie looked bright and beautiful in the eye-catching colours of red and white. The red dress is made out of a lovely silky material and the white jacket appears to be made from plastic. The white sunglasses add the A’list edge – she looks fabulous!

Bella and Gigi Hadid

The supermodel sisters look as good on the FROW as they do on the catwalk. Bella has a more edgy style with a crop top and a leather skirt, while older sister Gigi opted for classic tailoring with formal black trousers and a smart blouse. Which sister’s style do you prefer?

Lottie Moss

Kate Moss’s younger sister has inherited her sister’s innate sense of style. Her black maxi dress featured both a floral print and a gorgeous lace fabric. Italians are setting the standard high in terms of colour and prints.

Olivia Palermo

The American socialite is the perfect example of smart casual in all situations and at Milan she erred on the smarter side of causal. However, she shows that you can wear a suit anywhere and you can make it look cooler for day with sunglasses and flat shoes. I love her style!

Jourdan Dunn

Jourdan Dunn made prints work for her by wearing a mini skirt and showing off her lovely long legs. If you want to enhance a part of your body that you love then wear a print. The lace up ankle boots help to lengthen her legs even further.

Sofia Richie

Justin Bieber’s ex girlfriend is moving on by looking incredible in Milan. Looking fantastic is the best form of revenge to an ex and her black lace dress looks divine. She won’t be single for long!

Adriana Lima

The Victoria’s Secret model looked chic and elegant in a cut-out white midi dress. Monochrome is always an eye-catching look and Adriana wears it well. The slicked back hair adds even more drama to the look as it makes the lines of the dress stand out more. Bodycon dresses are perfect for the party season!

Who did you think looked the most fashionable in Milan?

From Catwalk to Your Collection With V by Very

Fashion week’s fresh silhouettes and fabrics have a knack for leaving us with a thirst for all-new-everything. What quenching news then, that Very (and in particular, V by Very) has a line-up of runway-inspired pieces you’ll want to wear on repeat, all season long. Key themes for your Pinterest board: blush pink, gothic glamour, heritage punk and a coat (because, you know, cold). Here’s a little teaser of the fashion coming your way soon.

Blush Pink

From catwalk…

It would almost seem we were viewing the models through rose-tinted lenses on the AW16 catwalks, as delicate shades of blush proved unmissable. Designers brought its feminine appeal to life through swathes of liquid silk fabrics (Roksanda), ethereal ruffles and frills (Alexander McQueen) and shine-bright sequins (Holly Fulton).

To your collection…

Work the blush-toned theme into your wear-everywhere collection with lightweight knits, wide-leg trousers and 3D florals.

PicMonkey Collage (1).jpg

Gothic Glamour

From catwalk…

While whispers of gothic drama have permeated fashion of late, the catwalks brought full-on rebellious glamour to the forefront. This was seen through off-beat silhouettes (Christopher Kane), sheer panelling (Mulberry) and rich black velvet (Topshop Unique).

To your collection…

Go hell for leather with PU dresses and fierce block heels or tap into the softer side with romantic ruffles, feather-weight fabrics and draped silhouettes. We take our sartorial cues from Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi. Platinum blonde hair optional, leave the dragon at home.

Heritage Punk

From catwalk…

Iconic punk style is updated with British heritage influences this season. Mulberry’s catwalks showcased tactile checked fabrics and ruffled shirting, punctuated with studs and braces, while Le Kilt brought Scottish heritage to the forefront with tartan mini skirts.

To your collection…

Anything-but-dainty block heeled boots and checked fabrics are the order of the day here. Subvert the attitude-packed vibe with smart tailored silhouettes, or go grunge with fluid fabrics and faux leather jackets.

PicMonkey Collage (3).jpg


From catwalk…

Of course the onset of autumn and winter calls for a coat update. One you can layer over everything will be a power player in your wardrobe for the foreseeable. On the catwalk, Burberry adorned the iconic trench with 70’s snake print, while Prada’s patchwork of rich brocades were impossible not to take note of. Luxed-up leather with hits of colour were the order of the day for Celine and the indisputable stars of the show were bomber jackets, macs and military coats. 

To your collection…

Alongside a host of trench coats, leather-look jackets and macs, V by Very works all the catwalk trends into your outwear edit in the form of 80’s leopard print, faux fur fabrics and sporty bomber jackets.

London Fashion Week SS17: Celebs on the FROW

London Fashion Week is more creative than any of the other global fashion weeks in Milan, Paris and New York. It’s also way more star-studded as celebrities from the music and acting worlds flock to the FROW to check out the new season trends and dress in their best outfits from this season. If a designer has loaned them a dress for an awards ceremony or party then they have to show their support by attending a show and other lesser-known celebs are trying to get in with the designer for a future loan. It’s a circus, but a glamorous one!

It’s both fun and useful to see what the celebs wore to the shows as these are current creations and we can copy them right now! We have to wait for a while before we can start to imitate what we see on the catwalks, and who has time to do that? There were tons of well-dressed celebs every day, but these are my top 10:

Victoria Beckham at Vogue’s Voice of a Century book launch


Victoria Beckham cosied up to British Vogue editor Alexandra Schulman while looking dressed for business in a blue trouser suit. It’s power dressing at it’s finest! Trouser suits are the new jumpsuits when it comes to party fashion.

Olivia Palermo at Pringle


The New York socialite and former star of The City looked ready for autumn in her seasonal brown knitwear and midi skirt. Olivia is the Queen of dressed down chic as she looks smart without looking as if she’s tried to hard. This outfit suits her perfectly.

Lily James at Burberry


The Cinderella actress took a bit of a risk in this silk blue maxi dress as it looks a bit like nightwear, but she could always sleep in it if she gets tired. It’s refreshing to see a celeb do something a bit different though and she adds bed-hair for the full effect. If you’re going to try a trend then embrace it as you need to do the whole thing or nothing at all.

Cara Delevingne at Burberry


This could also double as a very cool Halloween outfit as Cara looked spookily pretty at the Burberry show. Her black mini dress shows off her lovely legs, but it’s the make-up that adds the drama with a lot of eyeliner. What do you think?

Jenna Coleman at Burberry


Jenna’s starring in one of the most popular TV shows of the moment, Victoria, and she’s glowing. I love the dark red trousers, which are a bit different from what everyone else was wearing and they’d be brilliant for the party season as you could go from work to a party in them without having to get changed. The navy coat goes perfectly.

Donna Air at Burberry


Now it’s autumn, it’s time to get out the leather look leggings again as Donna looked fabulous in hers. When worn with ankle boots and a formal black coat, you’re ready for anything in leather leggings.

Alexa Chung at Burberry


Alexa looked very sparkly and Christmassy in a sequin dress. We saw at the Emmys that sequins are making a comeback and they certainly brightened up Alexa’s look. When you’re wearing sequins, you never have to worry about accessories as they have enough shine on their own.

Poppy Delevingne at Erdem


Cara’s older sister Poppy also channeled Autumn with her LFW outfit and I loved the brown suede skirt, which would look gorgeous with boots all season long. Stripes are always cool and I like how Poppy’s gone for grey and red instead of the traditional blue and white. It’s very chic!

Daisy Lowe at Christopher Kane


The new star of Strictly Come Dancing looked elegant and sophisticated in a black pleated midi skirt, which she wore with a white t-shirt. The skirt is very formal, but the t-shirt makes it suitable for everyday wear and Daisy looks very cool in this outfit. Daisy makes her own fashion rules and pulls it off as she has attitude.

Jourdan Dunn at LOVE Magazine x Marc Jacobs’ party


Wow, talk about colour! It’s nice to see that colour, along with sequins, is making a comeback. Jourdan’s multi-colour mini dress shows off her long legs and makes her feel ready to party. You can see by the pout on her face that she’s happy with what she’s wearing and that it gives her confidence. Colourful outfits cheer everyone up.

Emmy Awards 2016: Red Carpet Glamour

The Emmy Awards are the Oscars of America’s TV industry. But with so many gripping  and addictive dramas on television at the moment, the competition is really tough. Anyone could have won!

Therefore, all the actors and actresses dressed like they were winners as they didn’t want to go on stage to accept an award looking anything less than their best. There were sequins, there were metallic colours and there were gorgeous deep reds and blues – they were full on party dresses. With the Christmas party season just two months away, it’s a great time to start thinking about party dresses and the TV stars are the perfect inspiration.

Let’s have a closer look:

Emilia Clarke

Game of Thrones won Best Drama for the second year running and now has the world-record for the most amount of Emmy wins ever. Emilia looks ready for the podium in a strapless beige maxi dress that gives her a lovely hourglass shape. It’s not complicated but it’s very pretty.

Olivia Culpo

The beauty paegant veteran has a wardrobe of beautiful dresses and she picked a fabulous one for the Emmy’s. Her strapless dress is super flattering as it has a tight bodice top that slims her waist before she enhances her hips with a prom style skirt. The barely there sandals complete the look and she even matches her nail polish to the dress. It’s all about the detail!

Sofia Vergara

The Modern Family actress is feminine and fabulous and she always dresses to show that off. She wears dresses that show off her gym-honed body and it’s hardly surprising as she’s worked hard on that bod. Her one shoulder maxi dress shows it off perfectly and the cream colour gets her noticed.

Emily Ratajowski

The blurred lines model is the third celeb so far wearing a strapless maxi dress – is there a trend going on here? I love the rich blue colour of her dress as it looks luxurious and it contrasts perfectly with her dark complexion. What do you think?

Priyanka Chopra

The Quantico actress had one of the most attention-grabbing outfits of the night in a red maxi dress. The loose, floaty material meant she could twirl it around. That would be so much fun on the dancefloor! There are rumours that she got close to Taylor Swift’s ex Tom Hiddleston at the Emmy’s after-party – watch this space! They’d certainly make a beautiful couple.

Claire Danes

The Homeland actress was a golden goddess on the red carpet! The gold dress enhances the golden colour of her skin and she looks radiant. Gold is always a big one during Awards season.

America Ferrera

The Ugly Betty actress certainly wasn’t ugly in a sequinned navy dress with red stripes. She’s got the beaming smile that you only get from feeling confident with what you’re wearing. Sequin dresses always get me in the mood to party!

Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten also wore a sequin dress, but hers also had a plunging V-neck to show off her chest. She knows what she likes about her body and so she dresses to show that off. Notice that she’s following the rule of covering her legs if she’s showing off her cleavage.

Heidi Klum

The America’s Got Talent host showed off her supermodel credentials in a white maxi dress. It’s a bold outfit with all the slits, but she pulls it off as she’s holding her head high, daring people to challenge her. She’s a great example of what you can get away with if you wear it with attitude!

Joanne Froggatt

Downton Abbey actress Joanne Froggatt showed that the Brits are just as good as the Americans at dressing for award ceremonies. She’s also gone strapless in a strapless black maxi dress. She looks chic and sophisticated and you can tell that she’s going to do well in America now that Downton is over. Not only is she a top actress, but she really dresses the part.

V By Very’s London Fashion Week Party: Celeb Looks

To start London Fashion Week in style, Very took over a central London building, got model of the moment Daisy Lowe on the DJ decks and welcomed lots of gorgeous celebrities to party with us!


Daisy is modelling the new V by Very collection and wore a lovely summery dress to the party that got all the photographers snapping away. You couldn’t help but look twice at her fabulous figure, honed by rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing. If she dances as good as she looks, she’s going to win the glitter ball trophy!

At the party, Daisy wore the V by Very vintage floral ruffle dress, which is loose and floaty and perfect for a hot September’s day. It’s one of those dresses that would look lovely with a chunky knit and thick tights so you could wear it all year round – it’s so pretty, just like Daisy herself.

However, Daisy isn’t just a pretty face as she kept the party going by picking some classics for everyone to dance to. The night took the form of a classic cocktail party with drinks and tasty canapes, which fuelled everyone’s gossip and dancing. And talking of dancing, ex-Strictly star Georgia May Foote attended looking bold and beautiful in a rainbow multi-coloured dress.

Meanwhile Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue proudly dressed in V by Very, wearing the V by Very stud ruffle tea dress, and said filming’s started for the next season already. We cannot wait!

Model Portia Freeman also wore V by Very, showing us all how to rock a jumpsuit with attitude. She’s in the V by Very cold shoulder stripe jumpsuit.

One of the highlights of the night for most people was a selfie cube, which was full of mirrors and lights and like a party within a party. Donna Air, looking girly and feminine in a printed pink dress stepped into it for some Instagram action.


And when the gossip and dancing was over, we got to look at some of the fabulous new V by Very items such as the V by Very zig zag sequin bodycon knitted dress, which is perfect for the party season.


What do you think of the outfit that Daisy wore to the party? Look out for her modelling the new-season collection as she wears the clothes well!

Going Out, Out? A Dress For Every Friday Of The Month


So, you’ve been at work all week and you and the girls have decided it’s time to blow off some steam and head to town. The problem is, you look in your wardrobe and everything’s been on Instagram one too many times. Nightmare, right? Well worry not, because with a little help from V by Very, you’ll have a dress for every Friday of the month!

 It’s a fuss-free kinda Friday

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 09.47.23

We all need one – the grab and go dress that always gets complemented – this Bardot prom dress from V by Very is just that! Its bright red hue, frilled trim and swishy skirt are sure to turn heads on the dance floor, and the off the shoulder cut is what the catwalks crave right now. We’re keeping it simple with two part heels, but try adding a metallic clutch for extra polished points.

Date Night

If there’s one thing you can rely on, it’s that lace will set pulses racing, and if you need any proof look to this strappy lace dress from V by Very! Its bodycon fit is curve hugging and super flattering, while the lacy fabric and cut-out details add to its romantic charm. Try draping a faux fur scarf over your shoulders to nail the ‘just stepped out of the fifties’ look.

The Invite-Only Party

 Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 09.57.12

Next, it’s the world of function-ready fashion, (think office parties or a friends 30th). These events don’t come around often so you should make a statement when they do, which is where V by Very’s embellished hi-lo dress comes in. Crystals cover the top to add impact to your occasion edit, while a dip-back hem works with floaty fabric and a fresh ivory hue to channel ethereal chic. With jewellery taken care of, all that’s missing is court shoes and a patent clutch bag!

The Runway-Ready Mini

If you’re the girl who’s all over fashion week, knows who’s wearing what on the frow and would rather die than don the same thing twice – you’re in safe hands with V by Very and this lace insert high neck dress. Its swing shape and high neck are ticking all the right boxes for us, and a lacy trim works with the bright white hue to lend loads of luxe appeal to your look. So get those pins out, reach for your fave platform sandals and grab your trusty clutch as you make your way out at cocktails o’clock!

What dresses do you always reach for? Will you be refreshing your party picks this season?

But it can be tricky walking the line between the dos and don’ts of the trend, and that’s where we come in with your guide to Nailing The Just-Left-The-Gym-Look.

Picture the scene, you’ve spent your weekday mornings unwinding at yoga or upping your BPM at circuits, and now it’s time for work.

But thanks to the athleisure theme of the season, it’s a dream! Look to our first outfit as proof!

Celeb Style Steal: Copy Kendall Jenner’s Fashion Week Style

With London Fashion Week bringing the capital to life from 16 – 20 September, we’ll see what all the new trends are and get inspiration from what the celebs are wearing on the FROW. But if you don’t want to wait that long for the new trends then we need to have a look at what the models and celebs are wearing right now.

Kendall Jenner, who is both a model and a celeb, did New York Fashion Week before London and packed a wardrobe for work, play and everything in-between. So whether you’re looking for a fashionable, on-trend and super cute casual outfit, party look or work outfit, Kendall is a fantastic inspiration. Her outfits are chic, laid-back and so wearable!

(1) Casual 


When she was running between castings and fittings, Kendall turned to an outfit that was comfortable but still very cool. A beige skirt is a wardrobe staple for Autumn and the V By Very large pocket a-line skirt is a classic example of something that will last you all season and into spring too. Kendall gives it a modern twist with some gorgeous purple boots, which really remind me of the Clarks Kendra porter heeled ankle boots. Such a cool mix of colours needs a simple top like the V by Very perfect scoop neck t-shirt. Finish with a cute shoulder bag that adds a touch of luxe to the look – the Dune mini jewel embellished clutch is perfect. Now you’re ready for anything!

(2) Party


Kendall has a tomboy chic style and brings attitude to evening events in trousers or jumpsuits. She looks and feels like she means business in pieces that are both fashionable and fit her perfectly. The bomber jacket falls to her waist, so it flatters her shape and helps to create more curves, while the black trousers fall to just above her ankles to enhance her long legs. To recreate this look, we could try the V by Very bomber jacket with the V by Very D-ring trousers. The Dune Pembleton leather high ankle boots complete the look as heels make everyone look more fierce!

(3) Work


On the catwalk, Kendall completely transforms her look, which is why she’s such a good model. Although she doesn’t wear many dresses in real-life, they really do suit her. Brown and cream coloured prints are key this autumn, so if you like to dress up to work then you could impress the boss with a tea dress like the Lost Ink Alicia Frill & Feather dress. To complete the girly look, you can’t beat a chic pair of Mary Janes. I love the Clarks Kendra Gaby Mary Jane shoes for their vintage appeal and block heels look so good while being so easy to wear!

Which of the three looks do you like the most?

V by Very’s Seven Jeans For Seven Days

We do love a bit of denim, it’s endlessly versatile, effortless to wear and comes in so many different styles, but what if you want to spend your week in jeans? Help is at hand with V by Very’s Seven Jeans For Seven Days!


Ella mid

Come Monday, everything that can go wrong will – but that doesn’t mean your wardrobe should, so reach for a pair of Ella mid-rise skinnies! Their classic silhouette is the definition of fuss free, and they sit just right on your hips to flatter your figure. Team with court shoes and a shirt for a truly chic look.


Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 10.30.56

Congratulations! You’ve made it to Tuesday! Things are less hectic so you can afford to add a little catwalk inspiration to your look with a pair of Macys! Their double waistband and button fly bring a little boho inspo to your OOTD, while the dark wash will always be a firm fave. A floaty blouse and waves in your hair are all you need here!


Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 10.29.25

When it comes to hump-day, easy styling is essential. Look to a pair of Charley jeggings to see you through the midweek slump! Stretchy fabric and a high rise offer all the comfort that we love from leggings, with the polished appeal and coverage of jeans, what’s not to love? A fine knit and ballet flats keep your style on point.


Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 10.33.47

It’s almost the end of the week and you’ve got date night planned after hours, so you reach for a pair of dark wash Ella high-waist skinny jeans to stay sleek from day to dark. The high rise smooths your silhouette for instant hourglass appeal, and they hug your curves for a flirty, yet sophisticated finish. We think they work best with strappy heels and an embellished cami top, just add a pop of berry lipstick for a dramatic twist!



By Friday, you’re counting down the seconds until five so you can head out with the girls, master desk to dance floor dressing with a pair of Addison’s in your repertoire! Their super skinny cut and deep blue wash perfect your pins in all-day comfort thanks to their stretchy fabric. Simply swap your court shoes for sandals when the clock strikes cocktails!



For a Saturday spent on the High Street, or people watching over coffee, keep things casual with the boyfriend fit of Kayden! The dark wash works with anything in your wardrobe, while their slim style is still figure flattering without being too form fitting. Try tucking in a high neck knit and teaming with trainers to channel this season’s throwback trend.



Your Sunday style should be as laid back as the day itself! So reach for a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans! Their loose fit and distressed details lend an urban edge to your off-duty edit, and when you roll up the hems, they’re an even more laid back pair! Try half tucking in your T-shirt for a model-off-duty inspired look.

Do you wear denim as much as we do? Which pairs will you be picking up from our latest edit?

This stunning fluted sleeve jumper is a lesson in easy elegance – the flowing shape of the flared bell sleeves and deep V-neckline bring doses of boho appeal to a casual look, while revealing your sultry side.

Wear this feminine and folksy-style knit with distressed jeans to soften the rock-chick, rebellious vibe. Accentuate the collarbone with a simple and delicate gold-tone necklace for a hint of hippie.

Sporting the of-the-moment athleisure craze, this sweat strikes the right balance between urban and girly. The relaxed fit is made for casual outings, while the ribbed detail stops it from looking too boyish. We’ll be wearing this with tapered joggers and a pair of cool kicks when comfort is key on weekends.

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 11.46.46

If you’re not a pink fiend, then this grey sweatshirt will tap into the sports-luxe trend, too. For a dressier spin, work the season’s love of modern metallics by partnering with a high-shine pleated skirt in space-age silver.

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 11.37.33 Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 11.37.42

Wear this boyfriend coat over your all-grey outfit to dip your toes in the blush crush. Featuring cool colour-blocking detail, the pink patchwork offers a flash of feminine style to the androgynous look. Grab a pearlescent pink metallic clutch for a futuristic twist on the typically girly colour.

New York Fashion Week: Celebs On The FROW In Black

New York Fashion Week is like the pre-party to London Fashion Week. It’s the first week where we all get excited about fashion by seeing what the models and front row celebs in New York are wearing and then it intensifies when the fashion circus moves to London straight afterwards.

If New York is anything to go by, we could be in for a lot of black this season. It’s a universally flattering colour and it’s also very versatile as you can get so many shapes of black dresses. This year, the trend is for loose floaty shapes and lots of lace as opposed to plain, straight styles.

Let’s have a closer look at some of the fabulous fashion week black dresses:

Kourtney Kardashian

The eldest Kardashian sister looked stunning in a black party dress with an asymmetric hem. Now that she’s single after splitting from Scott Disick, Kourtney’s having a lot of fun. She’s been attending more parties than usual and she’s got her eye in when it comes to what to wear as her new wardrobe is to do for.

Kim Kardashian

Kim’s always pushing boundaries when it comes to fashion and she certainly did that with a black lace maxi dress that completely showed off her curves. She wears it with attitude and walks with her head held high and makes it work for her. What do you think?

Mary J Blige

Mary J Blige has really found her fashion sense after years of wearing street clothing. The black midi dress that she wore to the Harper’s ICONS party was stylish, sophisticated and made her feel confident as she has a big smile on her face. The feeling of looking good and knowing it is the best!

Nina Agdal

She’s dating Leonardo DiCaprio and it’s not hard to tell what he sees in her as she looked classy and sophisticated in a long-sleeve black maxi dress. The red lipstick and side-parting adds to the elegant look.

Alexa Chung

Alexa was one of the few celebs to wear something that wasn’t black and she really stood out in a yellow dress. It would have stood out no matter what others were wearing as it made her look like an old-fashioned Hollywood film star. This is a great dress for Christmas parties as it’s a timeless classic.

Neve Campbell

Actress Neve Campbell attended quite a few shows so she wore a black midi dress that was smart but comfortable enough for her to move around town on a hot late summer’s day. The neckline makes the dress look different from any other black dress and that’s  what you need to take a black dress to the next level and make people look twice.

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly used her dog to create a monochrome effect and her sunglasses were white too, which added to her dramatic look. The black prom dress style really flattered her figure and made her waist look tiny. No wonder she’s on E!’s Fashion Police – she knows what to wear to make her look pretty.

Which celeb looked the best in your opinion? Remember that London Fashion Week starts on 16 September and we’ll have all the gossip and fashion close-ups for you from that.

TV Choice Awards: Copy The White Dress Trend

The TV Choice Awards signify the end of summer and the start of the Autumn party season. As all the new series of shows like Strictly Come Dancing, X Factor and Great British Bake Off start in the Autumn, it makes sense to do it at this time of year when TV feels really exciting and fresh.

It’s also a fabulous excuse for the celebrities to dress up and catch up on all the summer gossip. As there haven’t been too many parties over the summer, everyone makes an effort to show that they’re ready to go back to work and dress to impress. It’s a great indication of what party outfits are cool for Autumn and one trend did emerge from the night as several celebrities wore white dresses.


Lydia Rose Bright looked feminine and pretty in a white lace dress while Holly looked like she meant business in a white midi dress that’s perfect for both work and play. Katie Price showed off her curves in a bodycon maxi dress and put on a pout for the cameras as she looked great and she knew it.

Seeing all the stars in their white dresses shows there are several ways to wear white dresses and that everyone can wear the trend as there’s a style to suit all personalities and body types. The benefits of a white dress are that it really enhances any tan that you’ve picked up over the summer months and it’s so bright that you stand out for the right reasons if others are wearing darker dresses.


Let’s start with Holly’s smart white dress, which has long sleeves to keep you comfortable now the nights are getting colder. The V by Very fluted sleeve dress makes sleeves it’s unique feature and those make your arms look slimmer as they flare out. Alternatively, the Rochelle Humes tuxedo blazer dress shows a hint of cleavage like Holly’s dress and it’s sharp lines make you look fierce and powerful.

Or if it’s a maxi dress you’re after then you need one with a bit of detail. Katie Price’s had an open back detail, but it’s also nice to have the detail on the front so that everyone spots it, just like you see on the V by Very Aztec embroidered maxi dress.


Or maybe you want a white dress that has stand-out material as well as a vibrant colour. Lydia Bright’s dress had a gorgeous colour and texture and reminds me of the Miss Selfridge lace cold-shoulder pencil dress. The lace will feel lovely next to your skin and you’ll feel stunning when you look at yourself in the mirror.


Which white dress do you like the most?
