Celebrity get the look featuring Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lawrence and Freida Pinto

After the excitement and high glamour of the Golden Globe awards, it’s time to look at some more celebrity looks that can be achieved by shopping the High Street. Some of the looks featured are my interpretations of great style, from Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Freida Pinto. Other looks are actually the real thing, to be found in store and online right now.

First up is the Duchess of Cambridge. That painting that was unveiled last week sure is awful, but Kate’s French Connection blouse is anything but. Unfortunately, the sale item has almost sold out in every colour. However, there are a few left in white, which I think is a very versatile option that could look amazing with cigarette pants.

LK Bennett have relaunched those perfect nude heels, the Sledge, an absolute confirmed favourite of the Duchess, and the perfect neutral shoe. I so need a pair of these in my life!

Next up is that lovely X Factor star Ella Henderson, who tweeted a very sweet picture of herself wearing a great dress from In Love with Fashion. Ella is wearing the black version, but this dress also comes in this season’s hot OxBlood Shade.

Another longstanding Love fan is Una Healy. The Saturdays singer is currently enjoying the sun in the US and so can get away with this playsuit, but I think this would look fab with some chunky opaque tights and a studded shoe boot. Alternately, you can just wait for some warm weather to hit the UK. (Sigh).

Freida Pinto always makes interesting choices, and I think she looked just fabulous in this flouncy monochrome mini dress. Dorothy Perkins have this design which I think is a great alternative to Freida’s look.

At a Pre Golden Globes party, Jennifer Lawrence showed why she has been named on of the most beautiful women in the world recently. Wearing a cornflower blue dress that I believe is a Victoria Beckham design, Jennifer just sizzled. You can get a similar look from Very in a lovely dress from the Mylene Klass collection.

And finally, also at the same event, the very lovely Amy Adams showed that she is no slouch in the style department in a sophisticated green shift style dress from Herve Le Laroux. You can get a similar style in the current Reiss sale, a total bargain for £113.

Friday celebrity style special

A new month has started, a new season has begun, and the celebs are still pulling out all the stops to make sure they look fabulous at all times.  From reality TV stars to television presenters, there are some seriously stylish looks on display, from well known High Street names and online treasure troves. In addition, there are also some new season designer looks that can you get for a fraction of the cost by shopping thriftily for High street versions.

Here are a few looks that have impressed lately.

Caroline Flack wears Dahlia on the Xtra Factor

The superb Maisy pinafore from Dahlia looks great on Caroline, a real departure from her ever present shorts. She teams it with a short sleeved shirt for her look, but this will be great with longer sleeves and thick, brightly coloured tights come the colder days.

Una Healy wears AX Paris

Una is swiftly turning into the Queen of High Street dresses, and her is another one to add to her collection. This bright floral print with peplum is a really pretty number that you can now get in the sale for just £19.99 – half the original price.

Kate Bosworth style

Kate rocked this Burberry Prorsum Owl sweater to great effect earlier this year. Owls are a huge fashion story for Autumn, and you can get this look for a bargainous £35 from Wallis. Wear this with your skinnies and biker style boots for a fabulous cosy outfit this winter.


Stone Owl Sweater

Lydia Bright in Miss Selfridge

Lydia continues her love affair with Miss Selfridge in this fabulous two piece that has the feel of Miu Miu print. If you are not brave enough to wear the knicker style shorts, add a pencil skirt for a smart work wear look.

All Over Lace Knicker Short

Another Towie star who has paid a visit to Miss Selfridge is Lucy Mecklenburgh. She chose a beautiful embellished shirt in  a nude/pink shade and teamed it with skinny jeans. I think this blouse is a real investment piece – part country and western, part Downton Abbey, and it looks super stylish when wore simply with jeans.

Pippa Middleton

Pippa made an appearance at the US open in a fabulous yellow lace dress from Phase Eight. You can also get a similar design from House of Fraser for just £26!

Olivia Rubin for Dorothy Perkins sneak preview

The first collection gathered a celebrity following – Una Healy was widely photographed wearing a range of pieces from the range, and now I can bring you a sneak preview of the second collection from Olivia Rubin for Dorothy Perkins. And, in my humble opinion, I think this collection is even better than the first.

There are just so many great things I can say about this collection. I love the fact that Olivia has added very pretty knitwear to the mix, the sort of 1950s style jumpers that look great with pencil skirts or black skinny jeans. I love the way classic Dorothy Perkins styles have been given the Olivia Rubin print treatment, such as the nude dress that Lydia Bright wore last season, which has now been reimagined in soft grey, and fabulous monochrome.  And I love the lock and key motifs that are frankly just too pretty to be anything other than adorable. There is just so much to love about this collection.

One of the total highlights of this collectionis the addition of footwear. From electric blue killer heels, to the most gorgeous printed slippers, this is a gorgeous collection that is just full of lust haves. The studded slipper style flats alone are enough to break the bank for, but the Olivia Rubin collection is surprisingly affordable.

 The collection is not in stores yet, so whilst you are waiting, I’ve selected a few of my favourite pieces that are available right now.
