Celeb style update featuring Whitney Port, Pippa Middleton and Tulisa

I thought I’d end the month with a few more obtainable styles from some fashionable celebrities. This seems to have been a bumper month for celebs hitting the same shops and websites as you and me. From Lana del Rey wearing River Island as she wowed the crowd at Lovebox, to Whitney Port looking just beautiful in French Connection in a series of press shots, the stars are showing that there is nothing more glamorous than looking a million dollars when you haven’t even spent a million cents.

Other stars to grace the high street include TOWIE girl Jess Wright in Gorgeous Couture, Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley in yet another fabulous AX Paris maxi dress, and almost royal Pippa Middleton in a gorgeous striped cardigan from Orla Kiely.

Hackney Weekend featuring Lana Del Rey, Florence, Rihanna and Jessie J

Well, the festivals have truly started, and the best dressed ladies in music are making their mark with some very different styles. Lana Del Rey, Rita Ora, Florence Welch, Rihanna and Jessie J have all made appearances over the last weekend at Hackney Weekend, approaching festival dressing in their own inimitable style. My favourite was the gorgeous Lana Del Rey, who seems to get more like Nancy Sinatra with every sighting. She took to the stage at Hackney a week after her appearance at Lovebox, defining her as one of the faces of Summer 2012.

Here are what some of the ladies have been wearing, and some ideas for getting a similar look yourself.

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey looked just incredible at the Hackney Weekend, channelling her 1960s signature retro style. She seems to have inherited the late Amy Winehouse’s look, with the heavy, Cleopatra make-up, large backcombed hair and puffball style dresses. She always looks beautiful, but I particularly loved the off duty look as she arrived at the event.

Rihanna made an appearance on stage with Jay Z at the Hackney weekend on Saturday, dressed in typical Rihanna fashion. Let’s face it, if we had her washboard stomach, we’d probably live in crop tops too. On Sunday the tiny shorts will still in place, even if her trim tummy was now covered up.

Jessie J

Jessie J wowed the crowd with her glam tomboy style at the Hackney weekend. Striped leggings are almost becoming her trademark, but with her envious legs, they always look fabulous. I was also glad to see that her trademark bob is also back.

Florence Welch

Florence never settles for anything less than spectacular, and this dress, with its extra long train fitted this pattern once again. In antique gold, the colouring suited the singer perfectly, and despite the beauty of the dress, Florence was in hippyish mood with her barefooted look.

Jessie J – Her best Looks

She adds the glamour to The Voice, the touch of femininity on a panel chocked full with testosterone. Jessie J is currently one of the most photographed and lusted over women in the World at the moment, and her wardrobe inspires avid admiration from her legions of fans.

Jessie’s wardrobe has a tomboyish edge. On The Voice we have no Cheryl Cole style evening dresses or Tulisa form-fitting mini’s, Jessie opts for skin-tight leggings and leather trousers teamed with duster and kimono style jackets in a sea of bold primary colours. Jessie’s figure is amazing, she knows she can get away with the form-fitting catsuits that would have many of us crying into our puddings, and so often looks like some futuristic super hero, rather than a sex symbol. This may explain why women love her so much.

But Jessie can do glamour. At the glamour awards she looked gorgeous in a leopard print Dolce and Gabbana strapless dress, whilst her silver evening gown at The Grammys won her style plaudits everywhere. And she has a strong beauty look, with Cleopatra bangs that can often be styled into 20s style waves, or a long sleek ponytail whose severity balances out her strong eye make-up.
