Style Steal - Alexa Chung

In the above picture, Alexa is wearing a dress by Open Ceremony. The dress would cost you quite bit, but luckily for you, I have found something very similar and much cheaper.

New Look sell a white lace zip back prom dress for only £28, and its also available in black (below). So theres no need to break the bank to look like Alexa. If you look hard enough, you can find anything for cheaper!

Stone Cold Sober

I’m seeing this beaut in less than 2 weeks. Her name is Paloma Faith and shes pretty amazing. The above photo was taken by my friend Russell Nelson who also offered me his spare ticket-What a Gem! This will be my first time seeing Miss Faith live, but from her live performances I’ve seen on the tellybox, she appears to really put on a show with plenty of props and fantastic, over the top fashion. I’m sure it’s going to be an amazing night and I’m very excited.

Grammys 2010 Top Fashion

Having looked through the photos from this years Grammy’s red carpet arrivals, I was quite disappointed. There wasn’t really anybody who stood out fashion wise (except of course Lady Gaga who always likes to surprise). I found it hard to find 10 ladies who's fashion from that night really blew me away, so I have excluded 2 male stars who really stood out for me. These fashion favourites are just my opinion and so you may not agree, so I’m sorry if you don’t but hope you still enjoy what I have to say =]. P.s. these are not in any order!

1) Fergie Aka Stacey Ferguson

I’m not really a fan of Fergie but I absolutely love this dress. The blue is a wonderful colour and the silver strip really gives Fergie curves in all the right places, and she fantastically teams it with silver accessories.

I adore this dress, it has a kind of Mermaid look to it. I love how the faded style starts all the way from her pale white hair. She looks so glamorous considering we’re used to her not usually wearing alot when she performs.
3) Miley Cyrus

Again, I’m not a particular fan of Miley but she looks so grown up in this piece. The balance between the long sleeves and short hem is great as too much flesh can be tacky. Her caged heels and silver chains give it that rock chick boost.
4) Lady Gaga

Of course I cannot talk about the Grammy’s without mentioning Lady Gaga. She’s never one to disappoint when it comes to wacky outfits, just check out her shoes!! How can she possibly walk in those?

5) Kaley Cuoco

Kaley looks sizzling hot in this sexy black number. Amazing how she can wear this very plunged v-neck, whilst remaining classy. I love the wrap around on her waist - Curve-a-licious.
6) Lea Michele

This is definitely something I would wear. Its cute and fun. This colour looks great on Lea and the clinched in waist and fluffy feathers makes her body even more pear shaped.
7) Melody Thornton
This dress really shows what great hips Melody has and the detailing is beautiful. Who could of thought fading grey into pink could look so amazing? And Melody’s purse fits perfectly with her outfit, with the grey main body and pink metal fastening.

8)Adam Lambert

Yes, it may be slightly over the top, but that's exactly why I love it. He stands right out from all the other male celebrities who attended. The shimmery blazer adds a special something and Adam is rocking the guy liner like never before.

9) Kristen Bell

At first I wasn’t sure about this dress, but the more I look, the more I love it. It falls wonderfully over Kristen and she oozes confidence.

10) Simon Baker

Simon looks so very dapper and drop dead gorgeous. He’s given this somewhat plain grey suit, a mod feel with a skinny tie and the glasses give it a modern twist which not every guy would be able to pull off.

A day in London (Spitalfields + Covent Garden)

I went exploring in London today. Visited Spitalfields Market for the first time ever, been wanting to go for ages. However I think I chose the wrong day as there were only few stalls set up today, but there was one great vintage stall. Also visited a favourite shop of mine in Covent Garden called Pop Boutique. Its a great little retro/70s inspired shop. They sell some great baggy jumpers and in the summer they have some beautiful Boho style tops. Everything in the shop is very unique, there is usually just one of each garment and the prices aren’t as ridiculous as you’d think. So if you’re ever in/near Covent Garden, its definitely somewhere to check out. Below are pictures of the 2 items I brought today, which I’m extremely happy with. Please let me know what you think, Thanks =] (and excuse my messy hair, I need a trim!)

I brought this really gorgeous lace skater dress today in Spitalfields Market. I’m thinking of going back as they had some really great vintage/Victorian pieces.

I also brought this cute wolf jumper from a retro shop in Covent Garden called Pop Boutique. Its actually a mans jumper, but was only £15 and they have loads of other animal designs.

Golden Globe 2010 Best Dressed on the Red Carpet

Here are a few of my favourite fashionista's from this years Golden Globes. These aren't in any order, I just wrote them down as I saw them. I'm sorry if you do not agree with my choices, it's just my opinion. Please feel free to tell me what you think =]

1)Lauren Graham

Purely because I love Gilmore Girls! Lauren looks so pretty in pink and this hot pink clashes with the royal red carpet, making her stand out even more from the crowd.

2)Livia Giuggioli

I think for once, all eyes were off the totally gorgeous Colin Firth, and were instead on his beautiful Italian producer wife. I love the delicate swirly pattern and the black ribbon and purse make a great contrast.

3)Dame Helen Mirren

At the ripe ole age of 64, Dame Helen proves you are never too old for that sexy black dress. The glittery detail adds that modern touch.

4) Jennifer Garner

Recently, it seems the only pictures we see of Dear Jen are of her playing Mum with her 2 daughters in pretty normal everyday clothing, so it was refreshing to see her all dolled up. Jennifer pulls off this asymmetric dress effortlessly. It has a sort of Greek feel to it - A Greek at a disco.

5)Zoe Saldana

This colour is so beautiful on Zoe and its good to see shes keeping with a piratey look with the raggedy bottom. The detail of the top of the dress is very cute.

6)Calista Flockhart

Here, Calista looks oh-so vintage in this 1920s inspired dress. It hangs beautifully on her petite build making her look taller. This is something I would definitely wear.

7)Sigourney Weaver

This forest green is immaculate on Sig. The wrapped effect show her curves well and the gold jewellery are a great touch.

8)Carey Mulligan

With her sweet innocent smile, its hard to believe Carey is 24. I really love this dress. The midnight blue colour really stands out on her pale skin tone and has a sort of Gothicy feel to it

9)Lea Michele

Keeping with the Gothic look is Glee's Lea Michele. I Love the contrast of the tough looking top and light fluffy bottom. Her emerald earrings add a dash of colour.

10) Sandra Bullock

Looking perfect in purple is one of my favourite actresses, Sandra Bullock. Its such a gorgeous colour and Sandra oozes confidence. The slightly see-through skirt gives it that sexy little flash of flesh.
