Mrs Claus Style – Red Hot from M&S

As far as I am concerned, M&S have officially won Christmas. I love Buster the Boxer, but Janet McTeer, in her glamorous red outfit, totally owns the screen as the glamorous, elegant Mrs Claus, saving the day for Jake and showing his sister how much he loves her. Mrs Claus is cool, unflappable, not one for reindeers or chimneys, but possibly the only person in the world who could make eating a mince pie seem like a glamorous activity. She is, quite frankly, a new woman crush, because no one could refer to the glorious Janet as a mere girl.

Mrs Claus shows that as well as being the most apt colour for this time of the year, read is also the most vibrant and beautiful. M&S have a stunning collection of Christmas red items, with Janet’s amazing coat and dress combo destined to be this year’s top sellers. But they are not the only pieces to add to your festive shopping list, there are some stunning jeans, a beautiful lace dress, as well as more dresses with sleeves and some very attractive frilled tops.

In addition to the glamorous red of Mrs Claus, red is also the colour of juice for the lingerie and night wear range modelled by the stunning Rosie Huntington Whiteley, a collection full of sensuous underwear and 1930s style biased night gowns.

And if red is just that little bit too bright for you, maybe you could add it to your outfit by accessorising with a stunning pair of shoes. Red looks great when teamed with dark denim for a smart/casual look, and could be just the thing to add that splash of colour to offset a little black dress.

Style Icons 2014 – Felicity Jones

I am now starting my round-up of people who have caught my eye with their style choices in 2014, and I am starting with a lady who I believe will be a huge star in 2015 with her role as Jane Hawking in the Stephen Hawking biopic, ‘The Theory of Everything’, for which she is already receiving fantastic reviews and the possibility of an Oscar nod. I am talking, of course, about the super stylish Felicity Jones.

The-Theory-of-Everything-New-Picture

Felicity has a retro elegance that to me brings to mind the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Leslie Caron, a supremely pretty, gamine look that has an innocence that belies her incredible charm and talent. I first noticed her in Cemetery Junction, and also loved her in the Northern Soul film Soul Boy. She is just an engaging presence that lights up the screen, and she is also supremely stylish and elegant on a red carpet too, just look at some of the choices she has made in 2014.

Anna Chancellor shines in the New M&S campaign

The latest, star studded campaign for M&S has arrived in typically classy style. Following hot on the heels of the Summer campaign which featured the likes of Annie Lennox, Doreen Lawrence and Rita Ora, the Autumn/Winter campaign continues to feature women who are admired as much for their talent and personality as they are for their fashion sense. The first star to be unveiled is the brilliant actress Anna Chancellor.

 

Anna is probably best known as Duckface from Four Weddings and a Funeral, or for her turn as Caroline Bingley in Pride and Prejudice. This Autumn, she is also joining the cast of the nation’s favourite costume drama, Downton Abbey, and so will be a familiar presense in our living rooms in the run-up to Christmas. And it seems that she will also be appearing on our small screens in the ad breaks between Downton as the latest star wearing classic M&S designs.

Anna is a great advocate for a brand that is more about serious style than throwaway fashion. As she says in the film above, she knows what she likes, and the styles she wears are more suited to everyday activities than walking down a red carpet. I have a feeling she is going to be a popular face for the High Street brand.
