Leighton Meester for Nelly

She is the gorgeous style icon who starred in one of the most talked about ‘fashion-forward’ TV programmes of all time. She is also the lady who has just married Seth Rogan aka Adam Brody. And now she is sharing her fashion expertise in a newly launched range for Scandinavian fashion giant Nelly. Yes, it could only be that fabulous Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester.

The Leighton Meester collection for Nelly launched yesterday, and is full of pieces you could well imagine being part of Leighton’s own wardrobe. A cool mixture of classic and more edgy pieces, Leighton has combined trends like leather and skin flashing cut outs, with a range of animal print patterns, jumpsuits and statement jewel pieces to create a capsule wardrobe that can be mixed and matched, and can take you easily from day to evening.

In addition, there are some specially chosen pieces, called ‘Leighton Loves’. These have been specially put together as part of the celebration for Nelly’s 10th birthday.

Just loving Amber Heard matching her monochrome coat to her dress. This 60s styling was beloved of Doris Day and I just think it looks über chic and makes your coat part of your outfit, rather than just something you discard at the door.

Why Kate the Thrifty Duchess is great news!

Kate Middleton’s a true blue belle in ‘recycled’ azure coat for Prince Philip’s birthday celebrations – mirror.co.uk.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge shows no signs yet of giving up that amazing pre wedding wardrobe. After wearing a great dotted shift dress for a wedding on Saturday that she had previously worn in 2007, Kate showed yesterday why she is happy to live up to the moniker of the thrifty Duchess.

For the celebrations to mark Prince Phillip´s 90th Birthday, Kate chose to wear a beautiful brocade coat that she had previously worn in 2009 to the wedding of  Nicholas and Alice Van Cutsem. She paired it with the fabulous Zara dress that she wore when she left Buckingham Palace the day after her wedding, which subsequently sold out everywhere, and also a jaunty deep blue hat.

I think Kate looked fabulous in this outfit, and is showing style savvy in that she is able to adapt her wardrobe in order to make each piece pay its way. There is no reason to ´write-off´perfectly stylish pieces just because they have been worn before, and I think Kate avoids the endless comparisons to Hollywood style icons (a la the Amanda Wakeley dress and Leighton Meester) when she chooses items she already owns. The only comparison that occurs then is with herself. Kate is growing into a true style icon, rather than an outragously splashy clothes horse, something her late mother-in-law was often accused of being.
