Best looks from The Brits

The Brit Awards offers the cream of the British music industry the chance to get dressed up and generally let their hair down whilst enjoying the copious amounts of hospitality (ahem!) on offer. The latest ceremony has been totally overshadowed by Madonna, an Armani cape and a pretty spectacular fall, but on the fashion front it was a certain Miss Paloma Faith who took all the plaudits.

Paloma was awarded a much deserved Best Female Singer award on the night, and wore three showstopping looks, including Armani Prive and Dolce and Gabbana. She looked every inch the star, even when performing in a rainstorm. I’ve been a fan of Paloma since day one, and adore her style, she was the only person who could do the Olympic torch relay in 6 inch red heels. She goes from strength to strength and is totally unique, a real one off.

Get designer looks from Asda George this Spring

The new season from supermarket giant George at Asda seems to have a distinctly designer flavour.

Full of gorgeously girlie sorbet shades, this collection is simply full of pieces that bring to mind the pretty collection that Burberry sent down the catwalk last Autumn for S/S 14. That collection, if you recall, was full of beautiful lace and sheer fabrics, in soft pinks, mint greens and lavenders. The look was one that was surprisingly covered up, shirts were buttoned up to the neck, skirts were midi length and there were some fantastic coats and jackets, all in the most ice cream of colours. Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn rocked this look on the catwalk, and fashionista’s like Alexa Chung and Paloma Faith have since shown this it not only gorgeous, it is actually wearable too.

80a02d62c69adbdd4bed1bf966e21fe5A collection so wearable and pretty was bound to be a strong influence on the ranges on offer on the High Street, and I have been particularly impressed with how supermarket range George has interpreted the look to make it both fashionable and affordable. With an emphasis on the buttoned up shirts in sheer fabrics, and the jackets that are still needed in the early chill of Spring, George has captured the style that has made this such a popular Catwalk collection.

Celebrity get the Look featuring Paloma Faith, Rachel Riley and Lucy Watson

This week’s celebrity get the look is certainly an eclectic one. We have a beautiful blonde Bond girl carrying a bag she designed in collaboration with LK Bennett, and one of this years Oscar winners wearing a super cool brand of sneakers. There are some of the most stylish reality TV stars wearing a combination of High Street and High End, whilst a couple of the most stylish British singing stars are showing off some of their best looks.

Let’s take a look in more detail at some of the best looks of the Summer.

Rosamund Pike carries the Rosa Bag from LK Bennett

Rosamund Pike, already the face of LK Bennett, has now collaborated with the brand to create a line of the most gorgeous, luxury bags. In a sea of blues and greens, with a colour pop of orange, these are the perfect new season bags in the softest of leather. Rosamund has been pictured toting the bag with off duty casual, and I think this is actually one of her best looks, fresh and effortless. Click here to see the rest of the bags in the Rosamund bag collection.

Anne Hathaway wears Ash

Oscar winner Anne Hathaway is another star who is most often photographed in glamorous, red carpet outfits. So it was a real surprise to see her dressed down and wearing a rather fetching pair of Ash trainers. The ‘Virgin’ design are in cool leather, although I think Anne may be wearing a slightly lighter colour than the ones featured below.

Lucy Watson wears Marc Cain

Fast becoming the most stylish star to emerge from the most recent series of Made in Chelsea, Lucy showed off her style at the premiere of the latest Jennifer Aniston film. Her vest/camisole was a beautiful sequined number from Marc Cain, and I really admired her minimalist look, the sparkle of the top requiring very little in the way of accessories.

Vanessa White wears French Connection

Often overshadowed by the other ladies of The Saturdays, Vanessa White looked absolutely wonderful in this horse print blouse from French Connection. I love how she teamed the quirky print with a sexy leather pencil skirt, and neat up-do for a variation on the ‘sexy secretary’ look. The print is also featured on a bag which I think is a little bit special.

Paloma Faith wears Steve Madden Deeva Heels

Paloma Faith is always eye-catching in her style choices, and at T in the Park she teamed her exquisite Diane Von Furstenberg dress with a pair of superb heels from Steve Madden. The Deeva heels are rather high, and are not for the faint hearted, but I can think of no-one who could wear these better than the diva that is Paloma.

Ravir Singh wears M&Co

Daybreak always brightens the morning with its stylishly dressed stars who showcase a range of High Street brands. This dress worn by newsreader Ravir Singh was one such look, this tiered dress is from the M&Co boutique range and is a really striking look.

Rachel Riley wears Phase Eight

Rachel Riley came over all Marilyn Monroe in this beautiful Karenina rose print dress by Phase Eight. The Countdown mathematician always impresses with her choices, and this was retro pretty.

Samantha Barks and Caroline Flack wear Oasis

Two great style spots from Oasis. First up is Samantha Barks, who styled her floral silk bird print top perfectly for the V music festival. Also wearing Oasis was the lady with those wondrous legs, Caroline Flack, who avoided her usual option of shorts and instead went for a pretty floral print dress.

Kristina Guerrero wears Isabella Oliver

A special mention must be given to Kristina Guerrero, heavily pregnant and looking pretty amazing in the Lexington Silk maxi dress from Isabella Oliver. This is a soft watered print, and the silk makes this a very elegant choice for the mum-to-be.

Lucy Watson wears Dorothy Perkins

Another Lucy Watson spot, with Lucy Watson wearing a skirt from Dorothy Perkins that is most certainly looking forward to the new season. A skater style in dogtooth print, add opaques and be wearing this well into 2014.

Jennifer Aniston wears All Saints

A superstar spot, and one who doesn’t often appear wearing High Street, Jennifer Aniston was spied wearing a silk scarf from All Saints. The scarf looked fabulous teamed with a smart blazer, showing why many celebs choose scarves as their accessory of choice.

Jess Wright wears Celeb Boutique

And finally, whilst some stars seem to be wearing their Autumn pieces already, the lovely Jess Wright is doing a great job of making the most of the summer in this flirty floral dress from Celeb Boutique.
