Celebrity get the look with Vicky Pattison, Olivia Palermo and Prince George

It seemed like it was about time for another celebrity get the look post, looking at some of the latest looks that celebrities have been wearing that include some pieces from the High Street, as well as a few covetable designer looks thrown in for good measure.

So, this month we have it all – cream of Hollywood Royalty, a couple of supermodels, reality tv finest and a bonafide fashionista. We have looks from Zara, Select fashion, Topshop and a couple of stunning dresses from latest fashion ‘must have’ label Self Portrait, a label I first saw in person at a Pandora launch, worn by Sarah Jayne Crawford, and have admired ever since then. This time the Self Portrait dresses are being worn by Miranda Kerr and Rachel McAdams, and show the diversity of styles designed by the label.

I have also featured a get the look featuring Kate Upton. Now, the dress worn by Kate is a Topshop dress that cost £150, but I can find no trace of it on the website currently. However, I have found 3 similar (but much cheaper) alternatives that can give you a similar stunning look.

In amongst all the gorgeous fashionista’s I have also included the also totally adorable Prince George in his personalised My 1st Years dressing gown, which he wore to meet and charm President Obama recently. How cute does he look?

Fashion Icons of Racing Season

Spring is on it’s way (although it has suddenly gone cold again, but I saw Daffodils in the supermarket today and that is a sign that brighter days are just around the corner.) With the arrival of Spring it will soon be time for ladies day season, as the big horse racing events arrive and are circled on the calendar. Ladies Day’s bring an opportunity to wear a beautiful dress, a rather ostentatious hat and have a little bit of sporting fun.

From the Cheltenham Gold Cup, to the Grand National, from Glorious Goodwood and the Derby, and of course, not forgetting Royal Ascot and it’s rather strict dress rules, the most famous racing events on the sporting calendar attract the most glamorous of race goers. Moreover, these days you don’t actually have to attend the actual racing to be part of the Ladies Day parade. Many hotels and venues now hold their own ladies day events. You can enjoy all the fun, the dressing up and the champagne and canapes, all in plush surroundings, and, of course you can still enjoy the thrill of a gamble and bet on ladies day horses at the Cheltenham 2016 festival.

The reason I mention Cheltenham is that this is the first ladies day that is coming up in 2016, taking place on March 2016, offering the best in jump racing and the first opportunity for dressing up.  If you are planning on attending, and have been looking for some style inspiration, then I have put together a few of my favourite ladies who always seem to get it right when it comes to looking fabulous on race days.

Katherine Jenkins

When it comes to perfect dressing for Ladies Day, you would have to look long and hard to beat the always beautiful Katherine Jenkins. The opera singer is an ever present at Royal Ascot, and uses colour wonderfully to ensure that she attracts attention for all the right reasons.  I also love her choice of hats, which always perfectly compliment her choice of dress. Katherine has an old school glamour, sort of like a modern day Veronica Lake, and her style is impeccably glamorous.

Laura Bailey

Laura Bailey is one of my style icons, and, although not a regular on the Ladies Day circuit, when she does attend she channels the style of a modern day Grace Kelly, which can only be a winner. Check out her mint green dress teamed with a nude hat, simple, elegant and totally timeless. In this look she could never be anything less than first past the post. Keep your eyes open for Laura killing it at London Fashion Week next week, and you can check out more of her style on my pinterest board here.

Miranda Kerr

If you want to keep away from the pretty pastal shades and prom style dresses, you could take inspiration from the gorgeous Miranda Kerr. Her race day style is ultra modern, short and flirty, she has even taken a little black dress that makes her look like a glamorous widow and has made it a race day winner. Miranda thinks outside the box for Ladies Day, and it totally works.

The Little black dress makes a triumphant return at Cannes

The Cannes festival continues and I continue to be blown away by the beauty of many of the looks on display. Forget the excessive amounts of flesh that we seem to be bombarded with lately, the likes of Emma Stone, Sienna Miller, Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts and Lupita Nyong’u have decided to show us what a movie star really looks like, rather than opting for Cher’s Bob Mackie cast-offs. It is both a breathe of fresh air, and a visual treat. Glamour at its best in a beautiful setting.

One thing I have noticed is that classic, glamorous black gowns seem to be making a Cannes comeback. Yes, there have still been stunning looks that feature glitter and vibrant colour, but there have also been stunning black dresses that have both harked back to the golden age of Hollywood, and have been utterly modern in both style and sophistication (I’m thinking Miranda Kerr in David Koma). There have been wonderful and memorable Cannes looks that have featured black dresses, including looks worn by Cheryl Cole, Cara Delevingne and Blake Lively, but this year there seem to be a lot more of them, and I for one love this.

My personal favourite so far is the always elegant Naomi Watts in a strapless lace and tulle gown from Ralph Lauren. I think this is one of Naomi’s most beautiful red carpet looks ever.

I’m looking forward to seeing more fabulous red carpet looks from La Croissette as the festival progresses.

Do you have a favourite look so far?
