Christmas fashion inspiration from the Celebs

It seems an age since I’ve done one of my favourite sort of posts, a celebrity style one, and so I’ve decided that, as we are moving towards the end of another year, I would focus on some of my favourite celeb looks from the Winter so far.  I think 2014 has been a pretty vintage year in terms of stunning red carpet and off duty looks, and I’m sure to be featuring lots of my favourite 2014 looks in another post before we reach December 31st, but this post is looking at some of the glamorous evening looks that have featured in end of year Jingle Bell festivities.

We have Emma Stone super chic in head to toe black, and Kate Middleton again opting for classic black lace. Kirsten Dunst looks stunning in printed Vivienne Westwood, and you can get a similar piece for a sale price at House of Fraser. Michelle Obama always shines at this time of year, and I love the 1950s prom style that you can replicate with designs from Kaliko.

We also have looks from Hailee Steinfeld, Carey Mulligan, Cheryl Cole, Victoria Pendleton and my personal style crush fave from 2014, the impeccable Taylor Swift.

If you needed any further inspiration for Christmas and New Year, you’ve certainly come to the right place!

Blue is most definitely the colour this season

If you want to update your wardrobe in the simplest way possible this season, add a touch of blue. Blue is most definitely the colour to be seen in, in any of the many shades of blue. From the azure sea shades, to the deepest of midnight blue, to royal blues and turquoise, all the shades are covered and styled, in so many different shades.

The celebrities are wearing it so well at the moment and offering divine fashion inspiration. Model of the moment Cara Delevingne shows that bronze is the perfect colour to clash with your cornflower blue shades. Lana Del Rey should be singing her rendition of ‘Blue Velvet’ in that midnight blue dress (and yes, I know it is silk she is wearing, not velvet…). I love the freshness of gorgeous redhead Jessica Chastain in a stunning turquoise ruffle dress, whilst ‘Girls’ star and new fashion favourite Alison Williams looks just incredible in her vintage style mid-blue dress. And, finally, in the week of  her husbands second inauguration, Michelle Obama looked almost regal in Reed Krakoff dress in, you’ve guessed it, yet another shade of blue.

Jason Wu – S/S 12 – Oh so pretty!

One of my New York Fashion Week favourites, Jason Wu, unveiled his latest collection yesterday, and the collection could be summed up with a single statement ‘Oh So Pretty’. The designer, one of Michelle Obama‘s favourites, produced a collection that was gorgeously feminine, supremely elegant and totally girly – all of which is music to my ears.

Full of peachy pinks and coral tones, using the wispiest of chiffons and silks, this was a collection for those who really wished to embrace the pretty side of their style personality. Harking back to the 1950s days of Balenciaga and Jacques Fath, there were pieces in this collection that would have graced the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy and Lee Radziwill with ease.

Waists were emphasised with peplums and pencil thin belts. Bubblegum shades and sheer panels were also utilised, in a collection that could simply have been called ‘girl’. But there were also chic feathered cocktail dresses that recalled Kate Moss in her high glamour Johnny Depp days – dressing crying out for a pair of opera glasses, or a cigarette in a cigarette holder.

The showstopper was an exquisite yellow strapless dress that I expect Sarah Jessica Parker to claim. This had a slightly Spanish feel to it with a flamenco style skirt that was echoed in other looks. Again, the waist was highlighted with the slimmest of bow belts that add just a contrast of black to the vibrant look.

Overall, an exquisite collection that I expect to see lots of in future months. Jason Wu again shows why he is one of the most exciting names in New York fashion at present.
