There have been some really great celebrity looks this month, with celebs once again showing that the perfect wardrobe is a good blend of High Street pieces and designer names. On the designer front, there was a double whammy at this year’s Children in Need, with both Tess Daly and Sarah Harding opting for the Project D Itala dress, albeit in different metallic shades. Kate Moss showed her style credentials in animal print from Marc Jacobs in a midi length, a style you can get for less on the High Street at the moment, whilst the lovely Sara MacDonald, Noel Gallagher’s better half, showed that the Gatsby look is definitely alive and kicking in Gucci, a look you can get for less at Phase Eight.
On the High Street, Zoe Hardman and Lydia Bright are another couple of fashionista’s sharing a great look, but styling it in oh so different ways. The plaid suit from Miss Selfridge looks as great with heels as it does with loafers and is a great buy this season. Wear it as a suit or as separates, either way would be amazing, making it a great versatile buy. Millie Mackintosh looks a million dollars in a pair of chandelier earrings from Accessorize that cost significantly less than a million dollars, whilst Ellie Goulding towers over the musical opposition in a pair of Sprint boots from Nelly’s 5inch and Up collection.
And finally. my favourite celebrity look of the last week, and one which I had just a small hand in. BBC presenter Joanne Malin presented the Midlands coverage of this year’s ‘Children in Need’ in a gorgeous blue, 1960s style, beaded dress from Phase Eight. Joanne had asked me if I had any contacts I could call in at Phase Eight in order to source something special for the live coverage, which regularly attracts more than 1 million viewers. I duly obliged and Joanne made a trip to the Solihull branch, choosing three possible dresses, the Tina Tassel, the Betsy Feather and the Lorabelle, with the Lorabelle the dress that was eventually chosen for the big night. I think this was the perfect choice with the deep blue looking fabulous against Joanne’s red hair.
