There are lots of debates raging around which is the best docu-soap on TV at the moment. Is the ‘The only way is Essex’ complete with fake tans, fake boobs and the worst fake acting ever, or is it ‘Made in Chelsea’, the posh version of Essex, where all the characters have strange names that sound like something you would call a gerbil and hedge funds? In my eyes there is no competition. I’m totally addicted to Made in Chelsea, and in particular, to the style of a trio of ultra- gorgeous girls, the incomparably named Caggie Dunlop, Cheska Hull and Millie Mackintosh. These girls now how to mix their labels with a smart smattering of High Street style, and have the sort of glossy hair that should have L’Oreal falling over themselves to get them to advertise shampoo. They also have the golden, healthy glow that you get after a winter ski-trip. I am going to blog about all three of these girls, starting with Cheska.
Cheska always looks amazing. A sort of mini Jemima Khan crossed with Sienna Miller, Cheska always seems to look great, whatever the event she is attending. Cheska has one of those wardrobes you would just love to rummage in, combining a mixture of luxe vintage pieces, a smattering of leopard print and fabulous maxi dresses. Cheska seems to like extremes of length, full length and fabulous, or thigh skinning shorts and skirts that show off her coltish legs. I particularly love the silver sequinned dress she teamed with wellies for the Polo,this has a Kate Moss feel during her glamorous Glastonbury phase, whilst the beautiful full length evening gown is decidedly gothic, perfect for this season’s dramatic trend.
Get Cheska’s look
Cheska is a huge fan of Zatchels, the luxury, British Leather satchel brand, and has been seen carrying two designs recently. I love this gold version, which is really versatile and could be teamed with just about anything…imagine this with a smart tuxedo jacket! The gorgeous dress is from Lipsy, and is still available on their website, click here to view.
Cheska is also a fan of leopard print maxi dresses, for daywear and for evening events. There are many examples of this sort of dress available at the moment, ranging in price points. I have found examples ranging from less than £50 to £300.
Cheska is also a huge fan of the glorious Wedge Welly. These are amazing because they have all the advantages of a normal welly, but let you feel more glamorous due to that special wedge heel, Cheska often sports the croc effect pair featured below.
This M&S dress is a great update for Cheska’s silver dress in a warmer shade, perfect for the upcoming festive season.
In terms of jewellery, Cheskahas impeccable taste. She is a huge fan of the amazing Zara Taylor designs that fans of shopping mommy know that I also adore. In the series she was seen wearing the vintage jewels and tassle necklace that was made from a complete set of vintage components.
In the picture Cheska is also wearing a Tresor Paris Shamballa bracelet. These are hugely popular at the moment and cost £150 from the Tresor website. (click here to visit Tresor Paris). There are also some fantastic versions available on the net for those with a slightly tighter budget. Terry Terry accessories have an amazing range in an array of colours for £45.
