Made in Chelsea – Caggie Dunlop style.

The undisputed female star of Made in Chelsea has to be Caggie Dunlop. The beautiful blonde with the Pre-Raphaelite curls and the bee stung lips has kept viewers hooked with her will she/won’t she relationship with Spencer, which at the moment is most definitely off..or on, you can hardly keep up. But as interesting as the star-crossed lovers might be, it is Caggie’s wardrobe that always catches my eye.

Caggie is the most Bohemian dresser of the Made in Chelsea girls, she has that slightly mismatched, boho vibe that made Sienna Miller  so appealing in the mid noughties.

Caggie’s wardrobe is an interesting mixture of High Street picks, designer finds from Kings Road boutiques and exquisite pieces that she has found whilst travelling. She has a penchant for white, which looks fabulous against her tanned skin, and has a seriously enviable collection of designer tote bags. She puts things together in an eclectic manner, wearing leather beaded sandals for the Made in Chelsea wrap party, and clashing her printed harem trousers and wrap top during a recent episode of Made in Chelsea. No-one could ever accuse Caggie of being boring in her style choices, and that’s why she is always good to watch.

 

 

Pippa Middleton – The Dress Code.

This week has been a bumper one for Pippa Middleton watchers. She has been spotted out and about not once, but three times this week, and each time she has been wearing a great dress. Here is the lowdown on the outfits this week in Pippa-land.

Look 1 – The red cricket dress

I speculated that this dress was possibly an high street design as Pippa is often spotted wearing dresses from the Higher end of the High street,like Whistles and Hobbs. But this pretty red dot design dress turned out to be from Issa! It seems that Daniella Hayalel never need to take out advertising again, because two of the countries current style icons are constantly wearing her designs. Pippa always looks great in red, and this was no exception.

Look 2 The safety-pin dress

Back to work and Pippa wore a gorgeous safety-pin print dress that was from the High Street. The  pretty black dress was from the High Street brand Whistles, although I believe it is now out-of-stock. This is a great dress for drizzly summer days, because it has an elegant, chiffonesque feel, but long sleeves for chillier days. This would look great with opaques when the weather turns cooler. Pippa paired it with her favourite padded leather jacket, also from Whistles.`

Look 3 – Is it a skirt…or a dress?

Pippa was pictured with her glamorous mother Carole shopping on Chelsea’s Kings Road this week. I thought Carole looked amazing in a very pretty floral summer dress. Pippa was more business like, in an outfit that could be a skirt and top, or a dress. I’m frankly not sure. What I am sure of is the fantastic colour co-ordination of the navy and grey that looks just fantastic. Pippa is of course carrying the Modalu Pippa bag, that is now back in stock.

As Jane Birkin, Grace Kelly, Jessica Stam and Alexa Chung could all testify, having a bag named after you is the clear sign of fashion arrival. Pippa is definitely a new British Style icon. Next stop – the world…if Simon Cowell has any say in the matter.

Meanwhile…In Pippa land.

The  rise and rise of Pippa Middleton appears to be gathering pace with her unveiled as the cover girl for the August Edition of Tatler. Using a beautiful image of the world’s most famous bridesmaid in a decoupage style setting, Pippa is the second Middleton girl to get a Tatler cover this year.

Pippa’s profile continues to grow. The BBC is apparently desperate to get her to appear on Strictly Come dancing this Autumn, whilst R&B charmer Usher is apparently keen to use her charms for his new underwear range. Her appearances at Wimbledon last week led to a sell  out for Hobbs, when she wore the Wyldes red linen dress whilst enjoying an afternoon with Alex Loudon, her on-off-on again boyfriend.

This week Pippa has been out and about again, shopping on the Kings Road. She looked cool and classy in a simple white vest top and high-waisted black skirt. Like her sister, Pippa showed she recycles and restyles her wardrobe, having last been seen in the skirt a month ago when she holidayed in Madrid.More Pippa watching to follow.
