More hot celebrity looks for you to enjoy – featuring Olivia Palermo, Tulisa and Lydia Bright

Well, Fashion-Mommy has just enjoyed a well-earned break which has allowed me to sit and read all the magazines I could find. I’ve literally devoured a diet of fashion for a whole 10 days. And this has given me a perfect opportunity to see the new and key looks some of our favourite fashionista’s have been wearing. The good news is that there are High street buys amongst the looks, as well as investment looks from very exclusive brands.

Here are a few of the looks that kept me sane whilst I was parted from my laptop.

Olivia Palermo is one of the best dressed ladies around, and has a real knack of finding High Street Buys that could be designer. She recently attended  The Girls TV series Premiere In New York wearing a Pearl Queen Jacket from French Connection. This glorious jacket is High End High Street, with a price tag of £300, but it is absolutely stunning, and a real investment piece that could be 1920s vintage.

TOWIE star Lauren Pope is not usually on my style radar, but it jumped to boiling point when I spotted her in this amazing Monaco silk tunic from luxury label Mya Blue Beach whilst holidaying with Chloe Sims. This turquoise kaftan is super stylish with a gorgeously embellished neckline. I love the fact that this could easily take you from the beach to the bar. Just imagine it worn over skinny jeans!

My favourite stylish TOWIE lady, Miss Lydia Bright has sported some super looks lately, as well as a chic new haircut. She showed why raspberry is a great shade for blondes in a gorgeous Love asymmetrical maxi dress that you can get for £45. She has also shown continued loyalty to Miss Selfridge by wearing pieces from the Designed By collection.  I can no longer find the skirt on the website, but the blouse is still available and would look equally stylish with flared jeans for a 70s retro look.

DESIGNED BY Bird Print Shirt Price: 

Another lady raiding the shelves at Miss Selfridge is Tulisa. She was papped wearing a great pair of platform sandals from the new Limited Edition shoe range. Again, there is a definite 70s feel to the collection, and, although not always a fan of Tulisa’s style, I think she looks great on this occasion.

Celeste Black Chunky Heel Price: £59.00 

Kelly Brook looked great last year when she was spotted in this New Look playsuit. Although this suit was last seasons, I really like the turquoise one that is very similar, and part of this seasons collection.

Bird print playsuit £27.99 

Kelly’s limited edition platforms are still available, priced at £59.99, but you could also opt for a lighter version to tie in with the light blue of this playsuit.

Limited Edition Platform Snake Print Shoes £59.99

MyaBlueBeach sings an hurrah for curves.

The problem with most beach cover ups is that they do just that – they cover you up, rather than enhancing what you’ve got. For curvy girls especially, the walk from the beach to the bar is one that involves tugging at an ill-fitting kaftan that is either too tight,or far too flowing, making you appear like a Demis Roussos lookalike. So thank goodness for the Mya Blue beach collection, designed by Lindsey Brown, a women who understands how to flatter any figure.

Medina kaftan in white £80.00 MyaBlueBeach

Mya Blue Beach is a collection of kaftans, beach dresses and tunics that you will want to pack in your case this Summer, and every other Summer after that. The design, cut and the shaping make the brand unique as Mya Blue Beach’s design objective is to fit all the curves of the female body, including hips, tummies and a real bust!  Lindsey bases every design on the logic that if she can’t fit her F cup bust into a Mya Blue Beach holiday dress or beach kaftan then the average person can’t! Sizing ranges from XS to XXXL.

I was lucky enough to get a good look at the Mya Blue Beach ranges at the recent CiCi press day at Jalouse members only club in Hanover Square. I was so impressed by the choice of cotton fabric that could be scrunched up in your suitcase and then simply hung up, ready to wear. I loved the range of colours, vibrant pinks and blues, and the ever classic white, that just looks so good against a tan. The designs are timeless and elegant, I particularly loved the Kirti dress with the gold trim, whilst the Ourika kaftan is just stunningly pretty, and is cut to once again enhance your curves.

And if the totally covetable designs haven’t already bowled you  over, Lindsey’s admirable stance on air-brushing and body image certainly will. Profiling the label to focus on a healthy body image for women, Mya Blue Beach cast a varied choice of model for their look book and campaign shots, all images released for use are never air brushed or digitally enhanced in any way. The true female allure of our stunning models is allowed to shine through. “I am very strict with my ‘no air brush’ policy, on all of our label photography , we don’t need to” adds  Lindsey “ the models look fantastic and the feedback we receive from consumers and retailers is that it’s great to see real natural  beauty.”

I love every piece from the Mya Blue beach collection, and think that these are pieces you will turn to time and time again when it comes to holiday season. For more pieces, go to the website at www.myabluebeach.com
