We find nothing more exciting than when celebs favour high street wares! Reasons: 1) We can buy them too, and, 2) they wear them so well, it’s almost high end minus the painful price tag!
So when we laid eyes on this week’s fashionably forward duo, who sported the same Topshop Unique a/w’12 handknit cross jumper to different events, we were beyond ourselves with excitement!
Excitement because we knew the jumper in question would be a hot favourite with the fash pack as soon as it appeared on the Unique runway back in February and, also, because superstar DJ and all round fashion darling Leigh Lezark and Brit model Daisy Lowe put their personal spin on the fabulous piece.
Daisy sported the statement Unique jumper to, surprise surprise, sit pretty on the FROW at the Topshop Unique s/s’13 show during London Fashion Week last month. She daringly took inspiration from the original catwalk look and teamed the knit with bare legs, wedge calf-length boots and added a cute backpack and a long coin necklace to the mix.
Leigh was spotted in the Unique jumper at the Anna Dello Russo x H&M launch in Paris last month, and opted for a similar look to Daisy’s, however she opted for (visible) leather shorts, pointed knee-high boots and a chain strap shoulder bag.
Can you see our predicament? Ton between two similar looks, both on super stylish women and both so good?! But, as always, there can only be one sartorial prize snatcher…
Fash-off champion: Both ladies pulled of the Unique cross jumper with aplomb, but we do love a darer when it comes to turning conventional dressing on its head. Although Leigh’s look works, it’s a safe choice in comparison to Daisy’s. A suitably stylish flash of leg hurt no one, and we love that Daisy’s bare legs are the perfect canvas for flaunting that louder-than-loud jumper. Daisy, we love your rather unique (pardon the pun) take on this Unique piece!
