Celeb Party Outfits At Superbowl 50

The Superbowl isn’t just about sport – it’s all about the party atmosphere and what people are wearing to celebrate! As it’s one of the biggest events in America’s sporting calendar, parties happened all across San Francisco where the game was held.

And as the focus was on sport, celebs had to show off to ensure they got attention over the football. Here are the Top 5 Super Celeb Looks:

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga was one of the biggest stars of the night as she sang the National Anthem before the big game. I love a trouser suit and although you do need some guts to pull off a red one, it is the colour of love as Valentine’s Day is coming up.

Beyonce

Beyonce was performing, which is why she’s wearing a skimpy outfit, but I loved her leather jacket. You could wear a good quality leather jacket anywhere and it would last you all year as it also looks great with skater dresses in the summer. As for black hotpants – if they’re good enough for Beyonce….

Adriana Lima

The Victoria’s Secret model got into the Superbowl spirit at Vanity Fair’s party in a black mini dress. If you’re not sure what to wear to a party then a black dress fits every scenario. And the leather jacket, taking a note from Beyonce’s book, helps her to stand out even more for the right reasons.

 January Jones

A flowing white dress isn’t just a summer thing! The Mad Men actress looks super stylish in her white dress, showing off a slight boho edge. With everyone else in black, red or leather, it’s good January has chosen white. The faux fur jacket adds an air of luxury, don’t you think?

Alicia Keys

Alicia performed at one of the Superbowl parties and looked like a true rock chick with her leather skirt and black t-shirt. This is both feminine and fierce – I really like it.

Who do you think looked best?

Perfect Places to pop the question

Whether you’re hoping for a proposal this Valentine’s Day or
you’re taking the leap on 29 February, here’s where to go!

Lake Loveliness
Derwentwater in the Lake District is one of Visit England’s top five places to propose and it’s not hard to see why with its dramatic mountains and beautiful lakes. Hire a boat, row out to a secluded spot and go to The Cottage In The Wood. (Rooms including breakfast start from £115 a night;
thecottageinthewood.co.uk.)

Travel

Cornish Charm
Welsh poet Dylan Thomas described Mousehole (pronounced ‘Mowzel’) in Cornwall as “the loveliest village in England”, and we agree. Pack a Champagne picnic for a beachside engagement, then book into Chapel House PZ in Penzance for sea views and design-led decor. (Rooms from £150 per night; chapelhousepz.co.uk.)

Travel4

Highland Fling
Take a day trip to the most northern part of the UK – the Shetland Islands – for a date to remember. Fly to Lerwick and make for a secluded beach like West Voe with its white sands and perhaps only a puffin or two for company. Afterwards, pop into Frankie’s Fish & Chips in Brae – voted 2015 best fish and chips in the UK – before flying home. (Daily fights are via Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Visit shetland.org/plan/how-to-get-here/fight.)

Travel3

Primrose Perfection
In a survey by Hotels.com, Primrose Hill in London was voted as the most romantic place in the UK. Grab a bench at the top on a clear sunny day and pop the question. Nearby gastropub York & Albany is owned by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and the hotel rooms are ideal for an overnight stay with style. (Double rooms from £150 per night on a room only basis; gordonramsayrestaurants.com/york-and-albany.)

Celebs give their best ‘Blue Steel’ at premiere

From maxi dresses to strapless bodycon dresses it was outfit inspiration galore at the Zoolander 2 premiere.

Penelope Cruz 

The Spanish actress looked stunning in a metallic maxi dress. Metallics are a key trend for SS16.

Lara Stone 

Wow! This strapless bodycon dress is dazzling.

Kirsten Wiig 

The American actress’ black mini dress looks vintage, everything looks pretty with a bow on!

Millie Mackintosh

Millie looks gorgeous in this black maxi dress. Perfect 90’s vintage.

Neelam Gill

Neelam is an up and coming British model so she needs to make a good impression. She’s got it right with her grey maxi dress. I love it!

Which outfit do you think is the love-liest?

Celebrities Party After Dad’s Army Premiere

Dad’s Army is a cult classic so lots of celebs turned up to support the cast and crew at the premiere in London’s Leicester Square. Despite the rain, everyone made a real effort to look glam. There’s no point in going out if you’re not looking and feeling your best, is there?

Colour blocking was the biggest trend of the night as all the stars opted for outfits in one bold, bright colour. As Dry January is almost over and Valentine’s Day is coming up, let’s have a look at some of the best outfits that are guaranteed to impress your mates and dates.

(1) Catherine Zeta Jones

Catherine’s outfit reminded me of what Rosie Huntington Whiteley wore down the catwalk in Paris. A blue maxi dress suits blondes and brunettes alike and helps alert the fact that you’re at a party.

(2) Millie Mackintosh

Who said you can’t get noticed in black? Millie’s zip detail jumpsuit showed off her glowing tan and she danced the night away at Annabel’s nightclub.

(3) Emily Atack

Emily also opted for black at the premiere, but stood out as her maxi dress was so Princess-like. I do like a long-sleeve maxi dress at this time of year. It will keep you warm so you may not need a coat and it looks really elegant.

(4) Princess Eugenie

Princess Eugenie showed that she is  a fun royal in a leather dress. She wore it well! I’ve noticed a great selection of PU dresses and PU skirts right now, which really catch the eye.

(5) Rosie Fortescue

Made In Chelsea’s Rosie showed off her fashion blogger credentials in a green dress. The midnight green is a warm colour, which lifts even pale skin and I like the midi length.

What outfit would you most like to wear?

Best Dressed Celebs At Paris Fashion Week

Paris is known for being a stylish city but it really comes alive during fashion week. The women’s fashion week starts in March, but the men’s shows are a warm-up and a lot of celebs attend because who can turn down a weekend in Paris?

Versace had a unisex fashion show so there were some gorgeous looks on the catwalk worn by celebrity models like Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls and Rosie Huntington Whiteley. While on the FROW were Georgia May Jagger, Rita Ora and Olivia Palermo. We can take some inspiration from their fabulous outfits both on the runway and on the streets.

Rosie Huntington Whiteley

I’m ready for some more bright colour in fashion. It cheers you up when you look in the mirror, it lifts the skin tone and it enables you to make an impact when you arrive. Rosie’s blue maxi dress was stunning.

Olivia Palermo

Faux fur is always a stylish option and Olivia’s faux fur gilet kept her warm and added a luxury twist to her outfit.  Her tailored trousers are very cool. Mis-matched outfits seem to be the way forward this season.

Gigi Hadid

I love a jumpsuit and a trouser suit so I’m excited to see they’re very much in fashion. A well-fitted suit will make you look sleek, sophisticated and in control – it’s the definition of power dressing.

Georgia May Jagger

Gerorgia May looked effortlessly cool in a printed blazer and black trousers. I love how she’s layered up this look, combining classic tailoring with a bright print- tres chic!

Joan Smalls

There were no shrinking violets at the Versace show, but Joan stole most of the limelight in an orange dress. A bodycon dress is perfect for partying in – she’d look good on the dancefloor in that.

Rita Ora

Rita attended a Chopard dinner looking sophisticated in a red maxi dress. Red’s been a popular colour at the year’s award ceremonies and Rita wore hers well, flying the flag for British fashion in Paris

Who do you think looked best?

Britain’s Got Talent Auditions: Judges Fashion

Britain’s Got Talent is coming back! The London auditions are currently underway and the judges will be spending four days in the capital’s Dominion Theatre, separating the wannabes from the truly entertaining.

David Walliams and Simon Cowell kept up their bromance while Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden added some glamour to the panel. When it comes to dressing, these ladies are talented. Let’s have a closer look at what they wore:

Alesha Dixon

alesha

Alesha posted a dressing room selfie to Instagram of herself all glammed up. I think the G Star Raw white flare jeans are a great match for Alesha’s and depending on how brave you are, wear them with the V by Very rib vest top or the Adidas crop top.

Amanda Holden

amanda-holden-outfit

Amanda showed off her feminine side in a white maxi dress with a cream coat. I love the South faux fur wrap coat, as it would go equally well with jeans or a dress. For a look like Amanda’s, it would go well with the Little Mistress embellished maxi dress.

Whose  style do you prefer – Amanda or Alesha? Now let’s just hope they both found some talented contestants for when the show comes on screen in the Spring.

National TV Awards: Top 10 Celebrity Outfits

The National TV Awards are like the Oscars of the British TV industry. It’s the most glamorous night of the year in television as stars from shows like This Morning mix with soap stars like Coronation Street. Then there are the live music performances from divas Fleur East and Gloria Gaynor- what more could you want?!

Let’s have a look at who won in the style stakes. If you have a night out planned, then these ladies’ outfits are inspirational:

(1) Rochelle Humes

Rochelle and her husband Marvin looked adorable together.  A red maxi dress definitely gets you noticed. When combined with hair-up and flawless skin, it’s a look Hollywood stars would be jealous of.

(2) Fearne Cotton

Fearne always has fantastic style and leads the pack rather than following. I loved her sleek cream maxi dress, which had a vintage edge to it.

(3) Ashley Roberts

Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts looked red hot. Her red maxi dress was an eye-catching scarlet shade and I love the split.

(4) Nikki Sanderson

Talk about an hourglass figure – wow! Nikki’s lace maxi dress hugged every curve. She shows off her figure without revealing too much and getting cold. I like it – what do you think?

(5) Emma Willis

Emma transforms a black maxi dress into something stunning with some pretty embellishments.

(6) Ferne McCann

Ferne’s completely re-invented herself since leaving TOWIE. She came across well on I’m a Celeb, she’s got a job on This Morning and she looks really classy in her silver maxi dress. 

(7) Holly Willoughby

Holly turned heads in a dazzling white maxi dress.

(8) Alison King

Corrie’s Alison King wore my favourite black dress of the night. I like the fact that she was brave enough to wear a midi dress while everyone else wore a maxi dress. The shape makes her waist look tiny, and this dress is great if you’re petite as maxi dresses can sometimes make you look shorter.

(9) Jessica Wright

Jessica channeled her inner vamp in a black maxi dress.

(10) Amanda Holden

Amanda’s black maxi dress was so elegant. The shape was simple, which makes it look as if she hasn’t tried too hard – even though we all know a lot of effort goes into looking that good.

And the winners are:

Talent show: Strictly Come Dancing

Challenge show: The Great British Bake Off

Drama: Downton Abbey

Serial drama: EastEnders

Serial drama performance: Danny Dyer in EastEnders

New drama: Doctor Foster

Drama performance: Suranne Jones in Doctor Foster

Comedy: Peter Kay’s Car Share

Factual entertainment: Gogglebox

Entertainment programme: I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Live magazine show: This Morning

Newcomer: Shayne Ward in Coronation Street

International: The Big Bang Theory

Daytime: The Chase

TV presenter: Ant & Dec

Do you think the right shows won? And what dress do you like the most?

Sweet 2016 Dreams

Sixteen switches for the new year. They’re so easy, you can do them while you sleep. Well, before bed…

1. Leave-in conditioner

Put onto dry, parched ends to nourish your hair.

2.  The silk secret

Cotton pillowcases can cause hair to frizz. Swap to silk ones to help reduce unnecessary breakage. 

3. Braid before bed

Wake to mermaid-style locks without the heat damage. Plait damp hair before bed and remember that the smaller the section, the tighter the wave.

4. Hand cream

Smother a generous layer of hydrating lotion on your hands and feet.

5. Zap zits

Soothe spots while you sleep by applying tea tree oil on your blemishes. Its disinfecting properties will help reduce redness and won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.

6. Root cause

Avoid waking up to flat hair caused by greasy roots and use a dry shampoo before bed. Spritz under the hair, close to the roots and scrunch in until the white powder disappears.

7. Brush your lips

Gently exfoliate your lips with your toothbrush and then lock in moisture with an enriching balm.

8. Cold creams

Applying eye cream prior to nodding off is no secret, but how about keeping the product in the fridge? The cooling effect will help to reduce puffiness and comfort your weary peepers.

9. Try a humidifier

For softer skin, use a humidifier. It adds moisture to the air, so it’s perfect for when the heating is on.

10. Rest easy

Make sure to get at least eight hours of shut-eye a night. Aim to turn off your phone and tablet screens 60 minutes before turning in. They emit blue light which can disturb your sleep pattern.

11. Cleanse

Don’t drop off without removing your make-up. It can attract blemish-causing bacteria.

12. All white

Once a week, dip your toothbrush into some bicarbonate of soda, polish your teeth and rinse. Do it before bed for the best results.

13. Hair mare

Keep your locks off your face while you snooze to prevent breakouts.

14. Oil up

Suffer from hard hangnails? Massage cuticle oil onto your nail beds for total rehydration.

15. Night cream

Whatever your age, use a night lotion or a restorative serum on cleansed skin. These products are able to work their magic without any disruption from cosmetics, the sun and pollution.

 16. Joint care

Zones like your knees, elbows and any other areas that are prone to excessive dryness will benefit from an overnight hydrating hit.

What are you waiting for…Win with New Balance!

Here at Very HQ we may have overindulged on one too many a Mince pie over the festive period, and if you’re feeling anything like us (a bit sluggish and tired!) you’ll have made your New Year’s resolutions to get fit, healthy and glowing for 2016! We’re looking forward to getting into our gym gear and building up a sweat to work off that Christmas pudding and feel our best in January.

Golden Globes Awards: Top 10 Celebrity Looks

The Golden Globes are a big deal during Awards season. There are film and music categories but the film categories are taken super seriously as the winners usually go on to win Oscars as well. That’s great news for Kate Winslet as she won Best Supporting Actress,  so there’s a good chance it’ll be yet another Oscar win for her.

This year it wasn’t just the dresses that were dazzling as Rosie Huntington Whiteley wore a massive diamond on her engagement finger. Jason Statham has finally popped the question…and she said YES! It was a bright and happy night all round. Here’s who I think looked the best:

(1) Kate Winslet

The British acrtress looked regal and Princess like with her dark blue maxi dress. The colour isn’t attention grabbing but it’s chic and she knows it. She wins in the fashion stakes as well as the award stakes.

(2) Jennifer Lawrence

Wow! Talk about a statement dress. In this scarlet maxi dress, Jennifer turned heads from the moment she arrived. You can’t beat a red dress if you want to get noticed.

(3) Rosie Huntington Whiteley

Gold can be a tricky colour to wear but if you have a golden tan then it’s a great compliment to your skin tone. At awards ceremonies there’s always a chance more people will wear gold and you’ll all blend in, but luckily Rosie had the colour to herself and she worked it. What do you think?

(4) Lily James

Lily really reminded me of her Cinderella character in this white maxi dress. I love how it floated as she walked, making her appear fairytale-like. The colour’s pretty attention grabbing too.

(5) Joanne Froggatt

The Downton Abbey actress has gone all LA! She fits in well with her strapless maxi dress and looks like a vintage Hollywood starlet. Something tells me she will have a fantastic career after Downton…

(6) Jennifer Lopez

You can rely on JLo to go for a daring outfit and I don’t blame her. If you’ve got it then flaunt it! She’s an example of how you can get away with something outrageous if you wear it with attitude and it makes me less fearful about wearing a yellow dress.

(7) Cate Blanchett

The detail on Cate’s dress was beautiful! The sequin embellishment and layers of chiffon reminded me of a 1920s flapper frock, except it was a maxi dress. It’s gorgeous from the front and then when she turned round we saw it was backless. It would suit both summer and winter events – it’s timeless!

(8) Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga looked so feminine and pretty, it’s just hard to imagine that this was the lady who once wore a meat dress to an awards ceremony. Her black maxi dress showed off her figure and flattered it in all the right places. Black is a classic!

(9) Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst also opted for a black maxi dress and I like the way hers has a rock chic edge. Whether you want to look sophisticated, vampy, rocky or classy, there’s a black maxi for all tastes. It’s amazing how one colour can be worn so many different ways!

(10) Amy Adams

What I like about Amy’s dress is that it’s a subtle way of getting noticed. The colour is bold but it’s classic shape of a maxi dress with a slight train is understated. She shows that a red maxi dress doesn’t have to be OTT and you can look effortlessly chic wearing one…even if you have red hair.

Who do you think looked best?

People’s Choice Awards: Best Dressed

After Christmas party season comes Awards season! Everything kicked off in America this week with The People’s Choice Awards, which are voted for by the public.

This means we get to see a more diverse range of stars on the red carpet, compared to an industry-judged event like The Oscars and The Grammy’s. Also, the People’s Choice combines TV, film and music so it’s the first big party of the year.

A great cure for the Winter Blues is shopping for party dresses and the stars had some truly fabulous outfits that night. Just looking at them on the red carpet makes me want to plan my next big night out.

Here are the Top 5 Looks of the night, which can inspire us for our nights out in 2016:

Kate Hudson

Kate floated rather than walked down the red carpet in a white wide leg jumpsuit. Not only is the white colour guaranteeing she gets noticed, but the shape flows perfectly enabling the wearer to make a movie star entrance anywhere they go. A wide leg jumpsuit like this is an ideal way to make a statement and get noticed…for the right reasons.

Vanessa Hudgens

Wow! Talk about vamp! It’s almost unbelievable that this powerful lady used to be in the kids franchise High School Musical. Now she’s certainly all grown up and not only is her maxi dress fabulous, but the choker adds an extra bit of attitude.

Meghan Trainor

I love how Meghan dressed to flatter her figure. She has a tiny wait and great cleavage with shapely legs and she showed it all off in a wrap dress. Also, you can’t beat a bit of sequins to add a bit of sparkle to the night, especially when the nights are long and it gets dark early.

Sandra Bullock

I love a red dress and Sandra Bullock wore a pretty spectacular red lace dress to win the Best Actress award. As she walked through the auditorium to get up on stage, everyone turned their head thanks to the striking colour. She’s not flashing the flesh and looks rather sophisticated but the colour gets her noticed. It’s a classy look!

Natalie Dormer

Natalie used to be in Hollyoaks before making it big in Game of Thrones and she’s still got a cool, uniquely British sense of style compared to the uber groomed LA starlets. She looks effortlessly good in her black jumpsuit. This outfit would be perfect for a Friday night out, don’t you think?

So who do you think looked best? Personally, I’m loving jumpsuits at this time of year. They’re easy to wear, they flatter the figure and they look fierce. What’s not to like?

Feel the Force with Star Wars

Here at Very HQ we are so excited for the latest instalment of the Star Wars saga –  Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It’s the seventh episode in the epic series and set 30 years after the Return of the Jedi; we can’t wait to see some of our favourite characters return, including Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo and Princess Leia, and also follow the adventures of new faces Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren.

There are so many fantastic Star Wars items available on Very, so you can make sure everyone will feel the force! We have highlighted some of our top picks from the range below:

1

First up we have the ultimate toy and a must-have for any serious Star Wars fan… the Millenium Falcon! A huge replica of the famous ship featured in the new film, it’s more than 2.5 foot long and will provide hours of fun with high levels of detail.

Detecting Imperial ships with its rotating radar dish, it can fend them off with the rotating cannon that lifts and lowers. If the threat becomes too much, just hit hyperspace and escape far, far away.

A full-sized Nerf blaster pops up from the front of the vessel too, perfect for protection against the deadly Sith, and it even comes with the 3.75 inch figures – Chewbacca, Finn and BB-8 – so the epic adventures to save the galaxy can start straight away!

2

Another Very fave is the Boys Millenium Falcon Sublimation t-shirt, a fun way to transport him to a galaxy far, far away. The colour-block T-shirt features the iconic and legendary starship cruising through space, with the official film logo breaking up the middle. He can be comfortable while looking like the coolest kid in the galaxy!

3

This next item is a fun way to bring the force to your kitchen! The Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block is designed to look just like the Rebel Alliance’s primary strike fighter, and holds a set of five high-quality kitchen knives that are perfect for when you’re cooking a meal that is out of this world.

4

Our final pick will transport you into the epic Star Wars galaxy so you can live the adventure for yourself! The Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars Starter Pack for PlayStation 4 harnesses all the power of Sony’s incredible next generation games machine, where you can create your own galaxy and download epic adventures created by the online community to play through.

This bundle includes the game, 2 Disney infinity figures – Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoko Tano – and the Disney Infinity Base to let you magically transport the figures into the game.

This game is also available for Xbox 360, Xbox 1, Wii U and PS3 on the Very website so no one will miss out on the fun!

So why not discover our exciting Star Wars range on Very and treat yourself or a loved one to a gift that is out of this world!

 

Jennifer Lawrence Shows Off At Joy Premiere

You can guarantee a lot of fun when Jennifer Lawrence comes to town. She’s down to earth, modest and always looks gorgeous!

Anyway, she was in London for a VIP screening for her new film Joy, which will be released in cinemas on Boxing Day. Jennifer stars as the woman at the centre of a family business but when she starts to make a success of it, the family suffers torn loyalties.

Here’s what happened and what everyone wore to the stylish event in London’s five star Ham Yard Hotel:

Jennifer Lawrence

jennifer

Jennifer revealed that she was on a packed schedule as she’s straight back into work in January, filming another role.  She’s the Queen of pulling funny faces and she has genius comedy timing, not to mention an awesoms dress sense. Her tuxedo dress reminded me of  the Definitions mono airtex tuxedo dress – what do you think?

Gillian Anderson

What I like about the former X Files star’s outfit is her leather jacket. Gillian’s been in the spotlight for years, but she never fails to disappoint with her outfits. This is a mix of smart casual that she can dress up or down.

Jameela Jamil

Jameela is back from where she’s been living and working in LA to have a British Christmas with her family. She hasn’t lost any of her style while she’s been away. Her leather skirt and blouse are so on trend – I love it!

Zara Martin

Hands down, Zara wins the prize for best coat of the night. I love a faux fur coat and Zara’s looked so cosy. Its actually really similar to the V by Very faux mongolian fur coat at Very. The TV presenter and DJ said she’s got some exciting TV shows in development in 2016 so watch this space…

Edith Bowman

The radio DJ worked this season’s preppy trend in a shift dress. It’s not a complicated look, but it stands out because it’s so effortless and it makes a change from the skinny jeans we usually see her in.

Who do you think looked best? Although Jameela is hot, it had to be Jennifer in my mind. She was the star after all!

Star Wars Premiere Gossip And Glamour

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere was an event that all the celebs wanted to attend – whether they were starring or not!

It’s the last big premiere before Christmas and this means it’s the last big chance to make an impact in sequins and sparkles! The celebs go all out to dress up, hoping they will go global if they get it right. It’s a time when people take risks to stand out and we can learn from this and look at what works. Here’s my personal top 5:

(1) Daisy Ridley

LONDON, UK - DECEMBER 16: Actress Daisy Ridley attends the European Premiere of the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens in London on December 16, 2015.

The British actress has gone from bit parts in Casualty to a lead role in one of the most famous franchises ever. She spent over an hour signing autographs, despite the fact it was a freezing winter night. Her black maxi dress was gorgeous – she is dressing like a star already.

(2) Gwendoline Christie

_LA_4129

Talking of gorgeous, Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline showed off her feminine side with a floaty black maxi dress with a feather trim. How gorgeous does she look?

(3) Lupita N’yongo

_LA_4499

Oscar winner Lupita has always done her own thing when it comes to fashion – being a lot bolder and brighter than a lot of the rest of Hollywood when it comes to her outfits. I loved the maxi skirt she wore at the premiere, which was embellished with studs and had a fabulous fringe. It stood out more given she wore a classic tailored blazer on the top half. What do you think?

(4) Felicity Jones

felicityjones

Felicity has gone for a classic LBD. I love a black bodycon dress and Felicity pulls it off as everything fits her fabulously.

(5) Sophie Cumberbatch

_LA_4261

I love Sophie’s look. Monochrome is great for catching the eye and it’s also a flattering print as stripes make you look smaller.

And finally, Myleene Klass looked stunning in an outfit from her own collection:

myleene-jumpsuit2

The jumpsuit is printed with circles, which resemble a space scene so it’s perfect. It fits the theme and it’s gorgeous. It’s full name is  the Myleene Klass embellished jumpsuit, if you’re interested.

Who do you think looked best?
